August 2009 I stayed at the Planet Hollywood with a room view of the CityCenter project under construction.
16 months later I am in the center of the action at CityCenter. This is Tomorrow Land of Las Vegas.
Aria Resort is high-tech room experience. I had a wonderful hotel tour of Aria Resort in my Loyalty Traveler freeloader kind of way by tagging along with a bunch of travel agents from the Luxury Travel Expo 2010 conference at Mandalay Bay who were escorted around the Aria Hotel yesterday evening. The tour culminated with a wine reception in a top-floor 6,000 square feet, bi-level SkyVilla with three bedrooms, six or seven bathrooms (I’ll have to count my photos – toilets aren’t something I normally photograph, but these toilets were exceptional), a sauna, workout room, barber chair, massage table, and incredible views of the Las Vegas basin in all its nighttime lighted beauty.
Extensive coverage will follow this weekend after I actually have some real sleep.
Thanks Expedia.ca for allowing all of us American freeloaders to take advantage of your Canadian Las Vegas Save300 promotion.
You provided me a priceless opportunity to experience high-roller luxury in a AAA 5-Diamond Resort Hotel.
