Described as the crown jewel of the 67-acre urban metropolis CityCenter, Aria Resort & Casino flaunts an illustrious list of firsts for the Las Vegas Strip and beyond. It’s not only the largest hotel in the world to earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, but it also features the most technologically advanced guest rooms in the country.
In addition, Aria offers more than 15 restaurants serving a variety of cuisines. Julian Serrano prepares Spanish-style tapas and small plates ideal for sharing. Jean Georges Steakhouse offers quality meats and inventive side dishes. Michelin-starred chef Masa Takayama is at the helm of both Bar Masa and Tetsu. There are also more casual dining choices including The Buffet at Aria and Aria Café, while the Jean Philippe Pâtisserie is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie serve fine food (like shellfish and roasted bone marrow) while celebrating the cocktails and café culture of Ernest Hemingway’s Paris. And chef Shawn McClain is behind a casual pizza eatery called FIVE50 Pizza Bar with handmade pastas and craft beers. Carbone is an Italian-American dining experience with waiters (known as “captains”) delivering entertaining tableside preparations.
Nightlife options at Aria include the sophisticated Alibi Cocktail Room and the ultra-swanky Jewel Nightclub. Some other more low-key bars that boast creative cocktails are Lift Bar and Lobby Bar.
Among Aria’s other offerings are the The Spa & Salon and a 215,000-square-foot pool deck. Liquid Pool Lounge is also a great spot during the summer for daytime indulgence in a party-like atmosphere.
Architecturally unique and sustainable in its design, Aria promises impeccable hospitality and personalized service. Expansive spaces like a three-story lobby are complemented by the warm, intimate décor elements of reclaimed wood and native stone.
Innovative water features by WET Design (creators of the Bellagio fountains and Mirage Volcano) greet guests at Aria’s arched porte-cochère. At the center of the driveway, the recycled water of Lumia lights up with bright, vibrant colors as it shoots into arcs and twisting ribbons. The curved 250-feet-long by 24-feet-high water wall, Focus, stretches across the front of the building.
Guests will also be greeted by public art, such as Maya Lin’s sculpture of the Colorado River, “Silver River.” Created from 100 percent reclaimed silver, it flows majestically above the registration desk.
Like the rest of the hotel, the casino utilizes unique earth-friendly initiatives, such as slot machine bases that serve as floor air-conditioning distribution units to effectively cool public spaces from the ground up. Nonsmoking pathways and specialized air curtains help minimize the impact of tobacco smoke on both guests and employees.
Aria has been designed to achieve a 30 percent improvement in energy efficiency. Guests can even “green their stay” by programming a preferred level of light and room temperature, as well as indicating the frequency of their linen and towel changes. The Control4 Suite System allows you to program your personal preferences, thanks to a simple remote control and television control panel.
Even with all the action under Aria’s roof, the CityCenter experience continues outside. The Crystals at CityCenter retail and entertainment district is located just beyond the lobby, while a pedestrian-friendly walkway offers access to Vdara from Aria’s north valet. Getting around the CityCenter complex and to other nearby resorts is easy as well. A tram runs between Bellagio and Monte Carlo with a stop at Crystals.
So a stay at Aria not only puts you in the lap of luxury, but also in the heart of all the action in CityCenter and within easy walking distance to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
