I should preface this review by saying that I'm not a Vegas regular. This was my first time. This review might therefore be a little naive from the view of a Vegas veteran.
We stayed in this hotel while we were getting married in Vegas. Because of the situation we were upgraded from the standard Aria resort to the Aria Sky Suites.
The room was really quite impressive. We chose a city view which was great from the 38th floor. The bathroom was really well kept, clean and had everything we needed.
I don't know if it's a standard thing in Vegas but it's pretty lame to not include breakfast. All of the restaurants in the resort are so ridiculously overpriced that you have to venture out every day just to get breakfast.
As noted in other reviews the check in procedure seems to take an age due to too few staff on the desks. Check out was even worse. After checking out we were looking at the paperwork in a restaurant and realised we'd be charged in pounds. The paperwork said we had agreed to let them convert the bill from dollars to pounds (at a terrible exchange rate and with a 3% fee). We did not agree to this as we have credit cards that don't charge any fees and give us good rates. It look a lot of hassling at the desk to finally have some of the extra money we paid refunded.
There is a bit of strange schedule for room cleaning. At one point we came back to our room really tired at 10:30 at night and the maid was in there. We ended up just hanging around in the corridor for 15 minutes while they finished off.
It's personal preference but I really hated the bed. It was far too soft. I woke up with a terrible back ache every morning.
