Aria Resorts & Casino Las Vegas Review:
The Verdict

Aria Las Vegas is a 4004-room uber resort that sits as the crown jewel of the City Center. Everything at the resort is executed on a massive scale, from the sky-high ceilings to the 24 restaurants, all while offering great amenities and good service. The 150,000-square-foot casino gives players access to a wide range of slots, table games, poker, and bingo.

The resort’s design, while creative and somewhat flighty, exudes class and elegance compared to more garish themes you’ll find elsewhere in Vegas. Overall, it’s a luxury resort & casino, and one that’s surprisingly pocket-friendly for most visitors.
