Before I start my review let me explain what I do in vegas- I sit by the pool, enjoy my room, eat out, and gamble $20 a day. That being said I fully enjoyed my previous experience at the Venetian hotel but I fell in LOVE with the Aria. I checked in at 8 pm on Friday evening and stood in line for ten minutes, then requested a room close to an elevator after reading all the other reviews. My wish was granted and off we went to the room. The room was very modern with all of the high tech buttons. My favorite button was the PRIVACY button so the maid doesn't bother you in the morning. Then the service button you can press when you leave your room and want it cleaned. I liked the double sinks and shower but did not care for the frosted glass doors on the toilet room. The bed was comfortable and we requested a refrigerator and got it. I did the automatic checkout but have not yet received a bill by email or phone message. The pool area is nice and you have to reserve a chair early because it does get full quickly. Don't use the pool people to get a chair, they only pick one the same way you would....they just want a tip. They do search your bags when you walk into the pool so no bringing beer down into this place. The gym is top notch and by the spa so the smell is awesome. I did think the hotel was a little far from the strip but we took a taxi everywhere so it made no difference. The food at the buffet was JUST OK, not worth the $64 dollars for two on the weekend. Go to the ARIA café instead and the food is better and cheaper. Julian Serrano restaurant was AWESOME, if you like shrimp get the GAMBAS. We went back a second time we enjoyed it so much. The pub is good too and had cheap happy hour prices.I lost my $20 daily at the casino as it is tight. I don't know anyone in Vegas who wins except the sharks. Then again I guess my money at the casino is funding the CityCenter and other beautiful amenities at Aria. You won't go wrong if you pick this hotel...if anything it will raise your expectations for all the others. If you are tight on money and don't want quality food then go to another hotel. You get what you pay for!
