My fiancée and I recently had a wonderful stay at Aria Hotel and Casino. I have stayed in almost all of the so called "Top Vegas Strip Hotels" and the experience at Aria far surpassed my accommodations at other resorts. Ill begin with our arrival. We were greeted outside by several very polite and helpful doormen who immediately asked if we needed help with our bags and directed us to the check-in desk. The check-in process was quick, flawless and very informative. Without requesting, the host provided us with a room upgrade which was determined by availability. Several maps of City Center were provided and a very detailed synopsis of the "to dos" at the hotel and Casino were also explained.
Upon arriving to our room and opening the door, the curtains automatically opened and the television and lights automatically turned on to greet us. The in-room touch screen controls are wonderful and control everything from the curtains to television to temperature controls. Very high tech and efficient. No issues there. For those that don’t like the technology, everything can be done manually as well. The bed is absolutely wonderful and a true highlight of the room. The decor is very modern and sleek.
There are many restaurants in Aria to meet almost any desire and taste. Shortly after check-in we ventured around the resort to find a good lunch. We found the lunch buffet on Promenade Level ($23.95) to be surprisingly affordable compared to other Vegas resorts. I can honestly say this was the best buffet I have ever visited. Once seated, our drink orders where quickly taken and lunch began. Everything from Italian and Mexican cuisine to all you can eat crab legs to a full dessert bar with many ice cream flavors were available. It was delicious. We returned a couple days later for dinner ($36.95). The dinner buffet includes the entire buffet once again as well as a whole Lobster per every 2 people as well as unlimited wine. On top of the wonderful selection, all the food was seasoned very well and tasted great.
Several previous reviewers complained about how dark the Casino is presented. I think this overall very "cool" low light presentation is in line with the modern decor of the hotel and fits very very well. There is plenty light in areas where it’s needed such as at all the game tables and slot machines. Great spotlighting on all the tables.
There several pools and an adult only pool located on the Promenade level. The three main pools were designed like a beach complete with the Palm trees and all. Truely the nicest outdoor pool oasis ive seen in Vegas.
Overall, this experience at Aria Hotel and Casino was by far the best resort experience in Vegas. Far surpassing MGM Grand, Cesar’s, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood and others. My next stay in Vegas will definitely bring my back to Aria for another great vacation.
