Stayed at Aria on annual holiday visit to Vegas. Have stayed at most of the hotels on the strip and Aria is certainly among the better resorts on the strip.
The hotel is sleek, modern and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It is environmentally conscious and fits into the City Center theme. The interior has a lot of dark woods, curves, and various shades of brown...which at times, makes the hotel seem very dark.
Stayed at a deluxe king room on a Zarkana package. The rooms are tastefully decorated with smart electronics controlling the shades, lighting, tv, etc. The square footage of the room is on the small side. There are floor to ceiling windows which make the room seem larger. The bathroom is sleek, with a tub and standing shower stall behind a glass door - some may find it "cave like".
Ate at American Fish - actually had drinks and appetizers prior to Zarkana - great happy hour prices on select drinks (try the Tom Collins or bartenders choice) and small samples of wonderful food - fish'n chips, truffle mac and cheese, etc..great prices for a strip restauarant.
Zarkana was a typical Cirque du Soleil show with wonderful acrobatics, clowns, and singers. I wouldn't put it up there with "O" or "Ka" but enjoyable.
The only downsides were the checkin and checkout processes....both with LONG lines. We tried using the option of in-room checkout on the TV but the service wouldn't allow it so we ended up waiting in line for 30 min to checkout.
Tip: If you have a car, valet the car at the NORTH Valet....easy in and easy out! Avoid the main valet.
