Aria Hotel & Casino is a striking property on the Las Vegas strip. It’s one of the city’s newer hotels and is part of the “City Center” development opposite Planet Hollywood. There are a number of thing to see here apart from the architecture. Firstly, don’t just walk by the fountain at the main entrance. Sit and watch a while and you’ll see bursts of water do battle with each other.
In addition to the fountain at the front of the hotel, there is also a waterfall which flows down the wall which encircles the drop off area. The impressive outside architecture and design of Aria continues inside the hotel and we were particularly impressed with area surrounding the theatre. Through the theatre doors, Cirque du Soleil have created a show called Zarkana which is set in an abandoned theatre.
The other notable attraction here is the City Center Tram, which passes the front of the building. To ride it, call at one of the three stations. The first is at the south end of Aria where it joins onto the Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino, the second stop is at the other end of Aria and gives access to the shopping centre, and the third stop is at the rear of the Bellagio. The City Center Tram operates 24 hours and is free. If you want to eat at Aria, The Las Vegas Strip Afternoon Food Tour calls in here.
