We spent three nights at Aria during a Las Vegas trip with friends. The Aria has a very nice, modern feel, and a courteous staff. Everything you would expect at a nice hotel We were definitely impressed with our room which had a large floor-to-ceiling window on the entire exterior wall (as far as I know this is a standard room). All the lighting, TV, alarm, sound and window controls are integrated on a remote, which was something new. We found the hotel's location on the strip to be very central....an easy walk to most of the main casinos on the strip and about 20-30 minutes to get to the most extreme north-south ends of the strip (Mandalay bay or Wynn). Also, it is connected to the City Center, a high-class mall, if you like to shop. The pool area looked fantastic for the summer. We did not spend a ton of time in the casino, but the time we did have in there we were not impressed. It's a pretty small casino and as a result all the tables were crowded all the time. If you enjoy playing the inexpensive video slot machines or low minimum bet tables, this is definitely NOT the place to go! Also, we ate at the Aria's buffet one morning for brunch and it was nothing special. better off spending your $$ at Bellagio, Wynn, or Paris buffets in terms of quality and variety. They do have a fantastic pastry shop near the casino floor, and I have heard some of the other restaurants are good, but cannot offer a personal experience there.
All that being said, the location is key and Aria has pretty fair rates compared to some of the other hotels in close proximity on the strip. I would recommend it to others for just the hotel quality alone, but I wouldn't consider it at the top of the list for the one-stop hotel/casino/restaurant properties on the strip.
One final thought--this hotel advertises itself as the first LEEDS certified ("green") hotel on the strip. It may have been constructed in an environmentally friendly way, but there's nothing about their operations that seems particularly environmentally friendly...I mean, the pastry shop provides gigantic boxes and oversize gift-style baggies to cart out one little baked item, and I did not see anything indicating that they're encouraging recycling or reusable materials or anything... what's that all about?
