Being one of the newer hotels in Vegas I was excited to stay and was not disappointed. Some reviewers dont like the smell of the casino but i found it pleasant. We arrived quite late at night and stood around a little waiting to be seen, I put my irritation of this down to the long flight and less down to the lack of ability of the staff though. We were told our room had been given to another couple as it was so late but not to worry you can have a free upgrade to one of our Sky Suites. Due to having not been to the Aria before we really didn't know if that was just a fob of to some rooms that were higher in the building or something and being to tired to enquire as to what that meant we mooched off across the casino to find our room.
Right at the other end of the casino we found some rather imposing doors with security either side, at this point I realised we didn't look like the typical resident found in this area and with a rather doubtful look the security guard asked to see our room card. With some fumbling and clattering of cases I produced our room card, with a slightly quizzical glance the security let us pass.
The room was stunning, not huge granted but perfectly formed in every way! Lush bedding refreshed with yummy chocs on a daily basis and a bathroom to die for!
The best bit about the Sky Suites which to this day I kick myself for taking 2 whole days to work out is the bar area just after the entrance to the Sky Suites. In the day they offer free hot beverages, pastries and cold drinks then early evening these are replaced by wine, cheese and these scrummy little dehydrated figs. Needless to say I was very happy at the discovery of this little gem!
I am not sure if it was the free upgrade that made this place so great but I will certainly be returning to find out!
