I stayed at Aria from 9/19-9/24/2010 with my husband and another couple. From the moment we pulled onto the property we were nothing but impressed! The hotel and casino are absolutely gorgeous. I was a little nervous given the negative remarks many other reviewers have made but my fears were immediately put to rest. The bell man was very prompt and friendly. We were checked in in under 5 minutes (including wait time). This was on a Sunday around 6:00p. Our friends were able to get a room directly across the hall from us which was perfect.
I quite enjoyed the vanilla smell they pump into the casino. It was much better than the flowery smell many other properties use to mask the smoke smell. I thought the casino was great; not too dark at all! The cocktail service was a little slow, I thought and they didn't have the Deal or No Deal machine I like! Other than that, no problems.
The room itself was absolutely gorgeous! I have never slept on a more comfortable bed--and I don't even like soft mattresses! My husband has a bad back and he said it felt great while sleeping at Aria. Everything was spotless and we loved the double sink set-up, as we don't have that at home. The rain showerhead was great as well. The water pressure was a little funky on the sinks and I can see why other reviewers complained about getting sprayed by the faucets. No problems with the electronic controls and I thought the blackout curtains were fine, although other reviewers complained that they let a strip of light in at the top.
We ate breakfast several times at the buffet. I would definitely recommend getting there before they start putting out the lunch items (breakfast ends at 11a). I much preferred the breakfast selections to the lunch items, but that's my personal preference. We also ate twice at Cafe Vettro for dinner. Great service and good food, with typical Vegas prices. Ordered room service 3 times and it was always prompt and the order was correct. Had room service for breakfast and they set up a lovely table in front of our window for a very nice dining experience!
We also used the spa facilities and they were fantastic! So relaxing and just perfect in every way! I highly recommend the hand, foot, and scalp treatment. So relaxing after all the walking you do in Vegas!
The location was fine; there's a lot of walking to do no matter where you stay, I think! We took a lot of cabs during our stay and there were always plenty waiting at the taxi stand.
I will definitely be staying at Aria again for my next trip to Las Vegas. We were in almost every one of the other casinos on the strip and not one even compared to the level of class and glamour of Aria (Caesar's Palace would be my next choice). I cannot wait to go back!!
