. . . such as the clean, quiet rooms, great service, beautiful atmosphere, Shops at Crystals, MLife, and all the other things that people have been saying in the reviews. There are a few things that could be better and is why I gave the rating only Very Good.
1. There is no refrigerator in the room other than the one where if you touch an item for purchase it could be charged it to your room. We had some cheese that we had to set on some of the bottles to keep it cool, and there was barely room for that.
2. The room safe is in a draw, but the storage space is so small that if you have a laptop, hardly anything else fits into it. Add an IPad and you might crack some glass. It needs to have at least twice the depth.
3. The rooms are small when compared to others at places such as the Venetian, Palazzo, Wynn, Wynn Encore, etc.
Yes, the Aria is slightly off The Strip, but that was not a great concern. Getting to other locations from the Wynn Encore is even more of a trek, and that one is on The Strip.
I really liked the Blackjack tables at Aria. This is the only location that I know of on The Strip that allows a player to Surrender a hand. Some of the dealers (such as Alex and Jacob) are also great to talk with while playing. I can't take the dealers who never say a word and look like they would rather be any place else but dealing cards at your table.
Overall, the Aria is a great resort and casino, and in spite of the 3 items mentioned above, we'll definitely be staying there again.
