Aria is a beautiful hotel and casino and the location is excellent. We travel to LV several times each year and have stayed in many of the 4 and 5 star properties. Aria is one of our favorites especially if the price is right.
There was a modest line upon check-in but it was managed well and took less than 15 minutes to get our keys. Our Mountain View Deluxe King accommodation on the 35th floor was spotless and nicely appointed. The view of the snow covered mountains and surrounding city was stellar so don’t be disappointed if you don’t score a strip view. The room and bathroom were good size with very modern décor. The bathtub behind the shower is a little strange. Palms Place has the same type of lay out. It must be the latest trend in space utilization – we don’t really love it. It’s messy and a bit slippery and awkward to have to walk through the wet shower to get in and out of the tub. The bed was dreamy and the linens are top notch. It took a few tries to recall the room technology from our last stay, i.e., drapes, lights, TV, etc. We like the “good night” switch by the bed that shuts the whole room down (blackout drapes, TV, lights) when you are ready for dark and quiet sleep. Housekeeping was late on our first day and we had to ask to have our room serviced when we returned about 4:00 pm. Once completed our room was perfectly refreshed. Did not have to ask during the duration of our stay.
We did not use the pool but it looked nice and well tended. Aria is one of the few properties that keep at least one of their pools heated and open during the winter season. The Spa was nice but not great; I doubt I would ever return. I found it to be smallish with a confusing layout. They do not have sufficient seating around the hot baths so many people were wandering around trying to figure out where to relax. Be aware that many of the spa areas are co-ed. They have a nice outdoor hot spa with great view but again there were few seating options and there were couples making out in the pool – really?? I think the spa attendants should have discouraged them but didn’t. I’m not a prude but it was rather uncomfortable and annoying.
The casino is huge and beautiful. Stakes/min’s are pretty high here so if you prefer 5 or 10 dollar min’s or 25 cent slots this may not be the casino for you; they are hard to find. There are plenty of dining options but most are very expensive. We like the fact that you can take the tram directly to Bellagio as well as to the Monte Carlo.
Overall the quality of the accommodation and the quality of service was excellent from beginning to end. We would recommend this property and would not hesitate to return.
Note: If you are looking for a great Las Vegas show, check out Absinthe at Caesars. It’s definitely for adults only. It’s raunchy, amazing and EXCELLENT.
