Aria Sky Suites Las Vegas
Nothing screams luxury like a towering vision of glass and contemporary styling and for the Aria Sky Suites, part of the ARIA resort and casino, this place is what serious money looks like and feels like. I mean, if you went directly from the Casino Aviator in Georgia, for example, and landed here, you would probably suffer a brain short circuit.
If you’re in Vegas to suck up the famed rat pack era nostalgia then the Aria Sky Suites is not one for you. ARIA is all about embracing the latest in architecture, styling and opulence. This place is part of the mega MGM Group and it shows in the level of investment that must have gone into this first class spot. It's high too! This is the Vegas equivalent of the Altira Casino Macau - only of course it's bolder and brasher- this is Las Vegas after all.
The ARIA casino is large with 150,000 square feet of gambling fun on offer. This casino is a class above establishments you might find in downtown Las Vegas or even Macau (such as the Starworld Macau Casino for instance). This place comes with a generous 12 roulette tables which, amazingly for this town, has a combination of both double zero and European roulette games on offer- this is a rare find in Sin City and worth checking out if you’re a roulette fan. Minimum bets start off at $15 but if you want to try out the European wheel that you need to prepare to join the $50 table.
If you come to gamble at the ARIA you will find out that the table games are competitive with affordable table minimums which mean this isn’t a place for the pros, come and gamble for fun- its far more accessible for the recreational player.
For poker fans there’s a lot on offer with 24 tables and a dedicated poker room and regular tournaments. For slot lovers this place has a generous number of games on offer including a lot of the latest titles as well as the old classics. There’s even a high rollers slot room so that you can take your slot play to the next level in volatility. And there’s a private high rollers room exclusively for baccarat if you fancy a change from the king’s game of roulette.
If you want to take a break from all that heady roulette wheel spin then you can cool off at the Race and Sports Book with massive screens and comfort while you watch the live game and take a flutter.
For those of you who like a different spin on traditional Aria roulette, at this casino you can have a crack at rapid roulette, with a croupier and wheel, but where you place your bets on a personal console too.
Chilling out couldn’t better at the ARIA. Just jump in the guests-only lift and arrive at the terrace with a first class swimming pool, spa and eateries to give you a boost before you hit the roulette tables, or to relax after making a mint on the table games.
If money is no object, you could make your stay that little bit more like a royal experience by booking the Sky Villa, a two bedroom penthouse suite with to die for panoramic views and a very high level of service- did you say “butler!”.
A few housekeeping grumbles aside, the ARIA is a top notch resort and casino which is located very handily for the Crystal mall and the nearby concert venues and offers a level of luxury that would be all too easy to get used to. The casino is on the big side but not massive like some of its competitors and for a roulette fan like me, the ARIA had enough tables to satisfy my wants and plenty of other games on offer if I wanted to change up the game play. A super modern and smart casino with all the extras.
