I've been searching the past threads and there isn't much discussion about Aria. The rooms look REALLY nice. I'm thinking about changing up and giving them a try.....if I can get my wife to go along with it. We usually stay at Wynncore, Bellagio or Ceasars. Seems like the prices for those places are unusually jacked up. Even though my wife has champagne tastes, I usually get us into those places with some kind of good deal. Best deal I've found mid-strip is Aria, that suits our tastes in room quality, from the looks of it. Just so you have a little background, we tend to only eat buffets (Bellagio, Wynn, Wicked Spoon, although we do hit Sugar Factory). We don't do spa stuff and we like to hit the clubs (Chateau, Lavo) My big concern is how bad is it walking from your room at Aria to the strip? What kind of routes can I take to get to Cosmo/Bellagio I understand there's a tram? I seem to remember riding it once, but I don't remember when it connected to Aria. I don't see us doing much at Aria other than sleeping there and some slots. Anyone have any ideas what to ask for in terms of room views? My wife is a big "view" fan. I personally don't care. Anyone give me the skinny on Aria?
