The hotel is very nice with great shops and amenities. However, it is super expensive! The stores are expensive with water costing $5 a bottle if you don't want to drink the same bottle for $8 in your room. The restaurants in the hotel are also
very expensive. Great food though, but very pricey. A slice of pizza is $5.50 before tax and tip, and if you order an awesome alcoholic milkshake with it you're looking at nearly $23 before tip. My wife and I each got a shake and it was $35 for two shakes to-go. They were great, but after tipping a mere $5, that's a $20 shake!
This hotel is geared for high rollers in the casino. Most tables were $100 plus minimum bets too.
Now l, the worst part was that we took Spirit Airlines there direct. I was shocked by the lack of service at the airport, and even more shocked that the bag fee was $45 per bag per person with a 40 lb limit. I was told I should've booked my bags online and it would be $25. Also wrong. I did that on the way back and it was $40 per bag. Plus they has zero beverage service (no water). Was supposedly cheaper, but you'd save much more $$$ flying a different airline if you have to check in luggage.
This is the way adults do Vegas-- great rooms, great service, amazing restaurants, incredible shopping, comfortable and friendly casino floor. If you're ready to step up from the typical bachelor-party-weekend-level and really go luxe, this is the
spot. Worth every penny.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Skip "The Buffet" (unless you're dying to hang out with the socks-and-sandals crowd) and get your breakfast at Bardot.
This is the first time we stayed at Aria and will definitely stay there again on our next visit to LV. Everyone on staff was very friendly, professional and helpful all the time!!!!Every request we made was treated promptly and efficiently and
they went above and beyond to make our weekend special ... From a room with a city view, candies in our room, a little later checkout, luggage storage etc. Gaming floor is very nice and I would highly recommend taking in one of spa services.!!! Excellent stay overall.
