I stayed at the Aria for just a single night in an Apartment room, encouraged by the excellent reviews on TA.
My stay was perfectly adequate - the apartment had good facilities, including cooking, ironing and laundry and would be great for an extended stay, The bedroom was, however, very small and dark (as others have commented). Staff were friendly and efficient - a minor problem with the DVD player was quickly fixed.
BUT, perhaps optimistically, I was expecting something very special - its not. To me, the hotel has a clinical, cold feeling, facilities are adequate but nothing special (e.g. toiletries are basic, annoying squeeze bottles of soap fastened to the wall etc) and, all in all, it lacks any hint of the 'wow' factor that lifts a hotel to something special. But, it does charge 'wow' factor prices so I would question the value for money.
There is nothing wrong with this hotel - it is perfectly adequate, well run and efficient. But, I suppose my overwhelming impression was 'Beige" and 'Boring"
