Beautiful hotel but quite a trek from the strip
6 years 4 months ago
This hotel is beautiful and the room was great, with great housekeepers. We had a large comfy bed, floor to ceiling windows with a great view of city. Large bathrooms, with 2 sinks but no plugs, ample bottles of shower gel, shampoo & body lotion. Even more if you requested it.

Drinks very expensive to buy in the Casino. Bar tenders reluctant to serve us if we weren't gambling because we were unlikely to tip given the scandalous drink prices. Not that we are mean tippers by any stretch.

Food and drinks were expensive at the restaurants and coffee shops, but the buffet was better value but I got fed up of it after a few days.

Quite a trek from your room to the strip, we often headed south towards Monte Carlo & got the tram to Bellagio if we were heading north strip, saved one hell of a march & zigzag thru Crystals.
Although I enjoyed my stay at Aria there is just too much walking involved to get to the strip & therefore would stay elsewhere in future.

Took the tram from Bellagio to the Aria. It's right at the back of the hotel and a bit of a hike.

Checked into the Aria at 9.15am and there was a room ready. We were allocated 23102 on the 23rd floor and we were upgraded to a City View which is normally $30 a night extra, but I don't think it's worth paying for.

There were a few minor issues that I didn't expect in a hotel of this calibre that had only been open 3 months. There was no ashtray in the room so I had to call down for one. The furnishings were quite dusty probably because the dark wood furniture and glass tops attract dust. There were cup/glass ring marks on glass top above mini bar which hadn't been cleaned. There was a blown bulb in the bathroom and the windows were filthy. Nothing that was worth complaining about, but issues we haven't had in much lesser hotels.

We also thought the room was badly designed as the desk is directly below the TV so if someone is working at the desk they slightly block the view of the TV.

The bed was extremely comfortable, possibly even more so than the Encore which we didn't think was possible.

The room reminded me on the Bellagio room – high class furnishings, but nothing startling to look at and not that big.

The view was of PH Towers, Signature, Polo Towers, Veer Towers, Mandarin Oriental, Tropicana, MGM, New York New York, Monte Carlo hotel and pool and mountains in the background.

Internet access was $15/24 hours, $29/48 hours, $42/72 hours.

The bathroom was quite small by Vegas standards. The bath is behind the shower, ie you walk through the shower to get to the bath which is all enclosed in one cubicle. There were twin sinks which didn't have plugs, not because they were missing, but it doesn't look like the sinks can be plugged as the drain holes are flush with the bowl. Not handy for OH shaving. The toilet is in a separate room with a frosted glass door.

The toiletries were shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, mouth wash and a vanity kit with shower cap, sewing kit and emery board.

There were 2 large wardrobes and 4 large drawers opposite the bathroom. There were additional drawers in the nightstands. There was a gold bedspread, dark wood furnishing with glass top, but lots of dust under the glass. There was a 42" plasma TV and mini bar.

Went to see the pool area which is very nice with lots of palm trees and a couple of hot tubs.

Down for breakfast at the Aria buffet at 7.30, $15 each, and there was no line. Asked for a table by the window overlooking the pool. Breakfast was very good. There was hand carved bacon, leg of lamb, pork and ham. I had smoked salmon and sturgeon with blueberry cream cheese, lamb, pancake and strawberries and bananas with cream. Server was attentive with drinks although she didn't clear the plates.

The casino is very dark and it was very busy when we were there.

I really wanted to like this hotel as it is one of the top hotels in Vegas, but housekeeping let it down. There are too many other choices in Vegas.
