We stepped into the hotel lobby and we instantly felt luxurious! The air con hit our faces and we were pleased to escape the Nevada sun. If you are particularly looking for luxury in Vegas, then this is your place. We only had three words repeatedly gasped during our stay here: Amazing. Stunning. Classy.
The customer service we received, from everyone from the waiters to the concierge, was top of the league with no detail too small. The Aria Resort and Casino is one of many hotels on the Vegas strip but what really sets the Aria aside from the others is its affordable pricing for the quality you receive.
We entered our room on the 52nd floor and the size was exceptional. Sean loved the state of the art technology throughout the room that allowed you to control every aspect, ranging from lighting to the TV to opening the curtains. Overall, we were impressed with the high class facilities.
Which brings me to the next fantastic aspect of the Aria, and that was the view that we were privileged to witness throughout our stay. We had stunning views of Vegas that were frankly quite mesmerising. Be sure to ask for a room high up if possible, the view of Vegas lit up is one not to be missed!
The Aria boasts 16 unique restaurants so we had a hard time choosing where to go! (We recommend you sample the epic pancakes at Jean Philippe Patisserie). We tried all three of their distinctive pools that vary in entertainment factor (one pool had top DJs playing all day). At night, we checked out the Cirque du Soleil show ‘Zarkana’ which was a phenomenal performance, ending the night in the busy but relaxed casino.
The location is perfect for wandering along the strip and they have prompt services for hiring cars and ordering a taxi should you wish to roam Vegas aimlessly (which we did!).
The Aria had everything we were looking for. We ate, swam, shopped, sunbathed, gambled, and relaxed to our hearts’ desire. If you need anything extra, literally all you have to do is ask.
The hotel recently received the Forbes 5 star award for 2015. In our humble opinion, it’s not hard to see why.
