Assuming It Doesn't Collapse...

Assuming it doesn't collapse in the ensuing months, Aria Las Vegas' opening date is December 17th, 2009 with reservations being accepted starting today at http://www.arialasvegas.com, which houses the brand spankin' new Aria website.

So, go find the surprises poke around the new site and tell us what you think of the rooms as well as the other offerings they've trumpeted.

Does this make you excited? Are you ready to book a room? Will you make a special trip to the grand opening?



Comments & Discussion:

Isn't granite the cheaper alternative to marble? Are they using it to be different than every other luxury resorts, is it a stylist choice, or are they cutting corners even before the place opens?

The site is still kind of vague and bland. However, 10 months from the open, I am unsure how specific they can truly be. The do have some celebrity chefs lined up and an Elvis Cirque Show lined up, but specifics seem to be lacking. I also did a rough check for a Monday - Friday stay starting Jan 4, 2010 and the rock bottom rate was $175/night, which I find kind of high, but I guess if someone wishes to stay there right after it opens and are willing to book 10-11 months in advance they probably will pay a premium for that.

Every hotel that has recently opened (Palazzo, Encore) or the ones that are to open soon (CityCenter, Fontainebleau), seem to be all upscale joints. I get the feeling that Vegas might be placing itself in a position of having too many high roller joints. This could have one of many consequences. Perhaps these high roller joints will cannabalize on themselves forcing to lower their prices, and those of a lower star rating or you might place the budget to mid roller off the strip entirely.

Amazing. enough said.

The Corner Suites look dope - I like that the bathrooms have exterior views!

regarding the comment on all the new "high roller" joints... I think it's great for the average joe. Vegas is turning into an "affordable" luxury town. I'm personally not big on services like bell, valet, room service, concierge, etc. I just come for the atmosphere, pool, food, overall quality, etc. For people like me, I think the current trend of lower room rates at luxury resorts is great. And for those that pay top dollar and expect personalized service, I think it just means they will get even more attention than they received before. It's just a matter of keeping out the riff raff and not letting the place turn into some spring break frat party. That's where marketing comes in.

The resort looks pretty promising. I really hope they pull off the execution. MGM hasn't really been as good as Wynn Resorts when it comes to follow through.

We'll see, though. Ten months.

The corner suites look pretty pimp, but kind of small. I'd stay in it though.
Someone said something about a "bathroom with a view" what room had that? I couldn't find it on there.
It looks pretty swank though.

The bathtub with the view is in the suites at the Eastside Cannery

LOL is the "go find the surprises" a poke at Wynn? lol
