Aria Las Vegas
Aria Las Vegas is a Mid-Strip hotel casino, although sometimes the postal address associated with it lists the Las Vegas Freeway instead of the Boulevard. The Freeway is parallel to the Boulevard, one block west. This hotel sits right between the Vdara Hotel and Monte Carlo, and the Cosmopolitan is also next door. See it on Google maps.
This resort is a blockbuster among hotels. Its Sky Suites won the rare AAA Five Diamond award, and its Tower Suites are not far from them in luxury. People associate the spot with high-end nightclubs, terribly deluxe rooms, and exquisite food and drink. It’s a place to wear your sartorial best.
The perks that go along with a reservation are part of what’s stressed here amongst the top accommodations. Luxury Airport transportation and concierge service are available to anyone staying in Executive Hospitality Suites and up. Other suites are situated to afford an excellent view of the Strip, which is another nice selling point, and you can choose if you’d like a suite from which you can see the Boulevard. Some room choices otherwise are: Center Suite Strip View, Corner Suite Strip View, Crystals Suite Strip View.
If you pick simply a Deluxe Room it’ll have some pretty great Sealy custom beds. Deluxe comes in two flavors: Deluxe Queen has 2 queen beds, Deluxe King has 1 king-sized bed.
Something to remember is that you should make sure to sign up for the players’ club card, M Life, before booking a room, because usually you’ll get a discount simply for being a member. This is an MGM Resorts property.
Let’s talk about night life and entertainment. The list of nightclubs here is impressive and you could make a week of it just visiting them all. They are: Jewel — it offers DJs and live musical performers; Lobby Bar — its Signature Sips makes it like attending a spirits tasting; Liquid Pool Lounge — a party with a cover; Late Night Lounge — has live music; Alibi Ultra Lounge — you can try premium spirits and special custom cocktails from noon all the way to 5am, every day, in an intimate downshifted setting. Then there’s the Baccarat Lounge out on the casino floor, right beside the Baccarat Room — a ritzy little sanctuary you can slip off to for a very excellent drink; the Gem Cocktail bar is situated mid-casino floor and has craft beers and sports TV; the High Limit Lounge is of course convenient to the High Limit Areas of the casino; the Lift Bar is at the edge of the casino gaming area and offers a nice line of purple-tinted drinks of all kinds along with all your customary libations; last of all is the 24-hour Sports Bar where you can watch, yes, sports.
Step outside to take a dip, and you will find 3 Ellipse-shaped pools among a myriad of pathways. You may reserve lounge chairs, or reserve one of the 34 cabanas, and there’s a Pool Bar. The SkySuites guests have their own Sky Pool on the roof. Each afternoon at 3, a party at Liquid Pool Lounge begins, adults-only, with DJs and cocktails — to which tickets are sold. There’s a dress code, and the price of your ticket differs according to your gender.
They hold concerts in the T-Mobile Arena: for example, shows coming up are the Rolling Stones (Oct. 19, 2016), Gwen Stefani, Carrie Underwood, Drake, Coldplay, George Strait, and sports events — such as UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) 202 bouts.
The Roulette games come in both European and American versions, and the casino has all the usual games that a big hotel would offer, and alongside the classic games, there’s Big 6, Casino War, Three Card Poker, Crazy 4 Poker, Blackjack Switch and more. There is additionally a separate High Limit gaming lounge, and the Poker Room has 24 tables.
Race and Sports Book — This offers a wall of 90 HD screens, some really big, for watching sports events. You’ll find couches, lounge chairs and full drink and food service. They also offer an app so you can place wagers from your phone.
Slots — They have 1495 machines of all slot types. The Aria hotel also runs free online slots games you can always play just to try for rooms, meals, or tickets to shows.
