Vacation is supposed to be relaxing, fun and enriching. Back when I was looking for a hotel in Las Vegas, my top considerations were location and amenities. Price was a secondary factor as CS wanted it to be the best trip with me being a first timer in the US so he let me choose which hotel I wanted to book. The Strip is full of 5-star hotels offering varying types of experiences but at the end of the day, Aria Resort & Casino won our hearts. Scroll down to find out why.
Standing tall at the heart of Las Vegas Strip, Aria boasts of modern architecture, top-tier dining and entertainment, and high tech rooms and suites. With just 9 years in operations, everything in Aria is relatively shiny and feels brand new. Our deluxe room, the cheapest available in the resort casino, is priced at Php11,650/night including resort fees and government taxes. Pretty steep for our standards but for the full Vegas experience, it was all worth it!
Aria Resort's deluxe room amenities include:
- Panoramic corner view
- Custom Sealy beds with Aria mattress and triple-sheeted, 300-thread-count bedding
- 42" HD LCD television
- 10” tablet to control lights, temperature, service requests, and in-room dining ordering
- A goodnight button to power down your room with the touch of your finger.
- Fully-stocked intelligent mini-bar
- Dressing area with dual closets and granite-top dresser
- Full bathroom with shower and bench adjacent to a soaking tub
- Granite dual sink vanity
The Buffet at Aria Las Vegas is open from 7am until 10pm daily. We only tried dining once on our last night in Vegas because we wanted to save the best for last. Dinner on weekends is priced at $43.99/adult while weekday rate is $38.99/adult; quite pricey but the unlimited crab legs was very tempting! The open-kitchen buffet was divided into several sections: Fish Market, Asian, Italian, Pizza, Mediterranean, Tandoori, Latin, Carvery, Diner, Salad and Sweets.
As much as we wanted to try each and every dish on the buffet, the selection was just overwhelming. A tiny piece of this and that to try as many but in the end, we decided to save our calories for the freshly steamed crab legs - the main reason why we dined there the first place!
Pros: Las Vegas Strip location, modern and spacious rooms, tight security, friendly service, mobile check-in/check-out facility, relaxing pools, and smoke-free rooms and hotel corridor.
Cons: Nothing because we absolutely loved every minute of our stay in Aria!
