I've stayed at ARIA a few times since it opened. All of my experiences have been pleasant, if not a bit underwhelming. The rooms are a decent size. A touchscreen panel near the bed controls pretty much all facets of the room (lighting, TV, music, blinds). It's not the easiest pad to navigate, mostly because it's not that responsive. But, as far as room technology goes, it's one of the better systems I've seen. The food options at the hotel are varied in quality. A few quick notes there: Jean Georges Steakhouse. Least impressive restaurant I've dined at there. It's not bad, but there are better Vegas steak options. I did like that there were a few imaginative items on the wine list. But, I'd head over to Kraft Steak or Del Frisco if you're craving steak. Julian Serrano has a place in the lobby. It's tapas-style, with a really well-constructed menu. I especially enjoyed the paellas, the tuna tiradito, and stuffed dates were some of my favorites. The breakfast restaurant is reasonably priced with great food quality. Service is a bit slow. The casino is nowhere near the busiest on the strip, but this leads to a decent variety of table stakes. The health club was very well equipped. There was a fee to use, which was kind of high iirc. But, top notch equipment and plenty of it. Very nice pool area as well. This hotel will be much improved once the sidewalk and overhead walkway construction is done. It's still a bit difficult to navigate your way out, as the tram to Bellagio is not well located.
