If coming to Las Vegas and looking for a luxurious and modern experience, look no further than the ARIA at City Center. Their current slogan is “This is how we Vegas” or simply #HowWeVegas, and I have to say, their way isn’t the worst thing ever. I recently had the opportunity to stay the night in one of their lovely main tower rooms and experience their motto for myself.
Let me preface this by saying that this is NOT their basic suite. This is actually an upgraded room called the Deluxe Tower King Suite with a city view. The views from the ARIA is a selling point all on its own. Nicely located on the center strip and with gorgeous buildings on the City Center campus; it’s pretty difficult to have a bad view.
The most significant difference is the size. The bathroom has a stand-alone soaking tub and there is a separate living room area. The room’s decor is a clean and subtle modern style with earthy colors. It’s very mellow and exudes a relaxing vibe as soon as you enter. It definitely isn’t a “party hotel room” like The Cosmopolitan or SLS, but it’s more elegant (without being stuffy) than either option. The room has many advanced technological features that make the room fun to explore. Plenty of touch buttons and single remotes to control the whole room. Pair that with the floor to ceiling windows and it would be a miracle that you ever leave.
Lastly, but definitely not least, the bed situation. Just in case you don’t have enough relaxation time in the giant bathtub, the amazing shower or the super comfy couch… you can get your relaxation on in one of the most comfortable beds ever. Go to sleep in this bed and wake up feeling like you won a million bucks in the casino!
Overall, ARIA is a great go to if looking to splurge on a super swanky room. I wouldn’t necessarily advise this room if you are just looking for a place to sleep, since the prices can be steep, especially if you are not planning on being in the room long. But if you feel inclined to ball out or you know you’ll be in your room for extended periods of time (like how I was on a staycation) then go for it! You won’t regret it and you can tell everyone How YOU Vegas! #HowWeVegas
