Weekend Getaway: Exploring Aria Las Vegas


With high-tech guest rooms, plenty of dining and entertainment options, and a perfect location along the Strip, the Aria Las Vegas Resort & Casino is an ideal home base from which to explore Sin City.

The hotel is located in CityCenter, a futuristic-looking development along Las Vegas Boulevard. Water features and fountains set against ultramodern architecture are among the first things you see as you arrive at Aria. You find more examples of contemporary art by world-renowned artists throughout the property, including in the resort’s spacious lobby.

Guest rooms at Aria feature sophisticated accessories and sleek, modern decor. But the contemporary feeling goes far beyond just the furnishings. When you enter your room, you get a surprise. The room is smart enough to recognize that it’s your first time entering the space. The curtains glide open to reveal beautiful views, the lights come on, and the television welcomes you with a list of room-related settings. A remote control allows you to adjust everything from the lighting to the room temperature so it’s all perfectly suited to your preferences.

Once you marveled at the room’s technology, it’s time to refuel. A wide variety of dining options are available at Aria, from casual eateries to elegant restaurants. You’re in the mood for a quick bite and a craft beer, so you head to Five50 Pizza Bar, which specializes in unique pizzas with an East Coast flare. You can grab a slice at the counter, but instead you decide to relax at a table in the dining room and explore the full menu. You start with a generous portion of the arugula and fennel salad. But you’re looking for something a little heartier, so you indulge in the Gotham signature pizza, which is topped with three meats and features a wonderfully crisp crust.

After grabbing something to eat, you head outdoors. Aria boasts three swimming pools and three large hot tubs. You beat the heat by renting one of the poolside cabanas, where you’re treated to a mister, refrigerator, ceiling fan, and two pool rafts—all essential amenities if you’re visiting Las Vegas during the summer months.

When you’re ready to explore the rest of CityCenter, you realize just how convenient the Aria’s location is along the Las Vegas Strip. Shopping and dining are right next door at The Crystals. Plus, the hotel is located along a tram that stops at Monte Carlo, Vdara, and the Bellagio, providing some relief from the sun for those exploring the Strip on hot summer days. Make sure you set aside some time after dark to check out the view from your Aria Las Vegas hotel room, however. That stunning vista is sure to be one of the most memorable parts of your trip.
