One of the most remarkable aspects of the Aria Resort & Casino in City Center is the award winning “earth friendly” technology incorporated in the design of the hotel. Specifically, the Aria Hotel features “smart rooms,” that will turn off unused lights and electronics, or regulate the temperature of the room when a guest enters or exists. Most notably, the Aria is the largest hotel to earn a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Outside of the hotel rooms, the Aria Resort & Casino offers plenty of attractions. The Aria is home to 16 restaurants offering a wide range of fine dining options, a 215,000 square-foot pool deck including the brand new day club Liquid Day Club and Lounge, Aria Spa & Fitness Center, and Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana, recently brought to Las Vegas.
The Aria Casino is the only casino located within the Las Vegas City Center, and features earth-friendly features like the rest of the hotel, such as: non-smoking pathways and floor air-conditioning units. Just beyond Aria’s lobby in City Center on the Las Vegas Strip sits Crystal’s shopping mall and entertainment district featuring many retail shops, dining and entertainment venues. If you haven’t had enough of the day’s activities, there are 10 bars and lounges located within the Aria Resort & Casino, including Gold Lounge and Deuce Lounge.
Aria Resort & Casino
Aria was conceived by MGM Mirage (now MGM Resorts International) as part of the broader CityCenter development project, which was announced on November 10, 2004. The architectural design of Aria was conducted by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, and construction began in early 2006 on a plot of land located between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo. This site was previously occupied by the former Boardwalk Hotel and Casino, retail stores, and a large parking lot, all of which were excavated beginning in April 2006. Following excavation, Aria’s foundation was poured in June 2006. Vertical progression commenced in September 2007, at which point construction workers built upwards at a rate of one floor every seven days until reaching the final height of 61 floors. – Wikipedia
