Aria, CityCenter, and Mandarin Oriental Sky Bar (17 photos)

The beautiful waterfall in front of Aria

I had low expectations before I arrived at Aria in Las Vegas. One of my good friends stayed there the weekend before, and told me that he didn’t care for it too much.

To my pleasant surprise, I really enjoyed my stay at Aria. Although the themes on the casino floor seemed to awkwardly overlap each other, the room, restaurants, and beautiful waterfall outside made up for it. I also really liked how CityCenter was only a walk away. Annie and I had the pleasure of checking out Eva Longoria Parker’s new restaurant, Beso, and after dinner, we had drinks at the Mandarin Oriental Sky Bar.

Here are some photos from the past few days:

This bedside touchscreen control panel was a nice touch.

Another Aria highlight was this decadent dessert store. It had something for everyone.

Annie and I both liked the food and overall vibe…

The view was amazing…

Overall, I would recommend staying at Aria. The hotel was pretty nice, the service didn’t disappoint, and there’s lots to do around the area. Thanks for taggin’ along!
