The Modern, super cool Aria Resort & Casino
Just before the housing bust, several quite amazing hotels were built in Las Vegas. The Cosmopilitan seems to be getting most of the glory these days, but this super cool, super modern Aria is impressive. The Aria Resort and Casino is just beautiful. Great modern aesthetic. Totally different than what you'd expect to see in Las Vegas. And, with full disclosure in mind here; I didn't stay here. I opted to stay right across the street at Bill's Gambling Hall. Which was a big savings from the $300 per night starting price tag of the Aria. But with just completed remodeled rooms, for a starving artist watching his budget (who was traveling without Linda to Impress with just how cool I am - she know's better) was a great value.
