I could live here. The space is a little tight for an extended stay, but I would find a way to make it work.
With 920 sq ft, it is one of the smaller true suites, but the space is well utilized. There is a half bath at the entryway. The living room has a sofa, coffee table, writing desk, overstuffed chair and a wet bar. The bedroom fits a king bed, large wall mounted flat screen TV and side tables with a little room to spare. The star of the room is the bathroom. Like the Palace Tower Suite, the bathroom here is over the top. There is a Toto toilet with heated seat, fresh water wash (similar to a bidet) and air drying options. The jacuzzi fits 2 people comfortably and allows you to look out over Las Vegas or watch your favorite television program on the wall mounted TV while enjoying the bubbles. The toiletries provided go above and beyond those of a typical hotel room. In addition to the standard soap and shampoo, you get full shaving and dental kits. Aria rooms are designed with a number of high tech features including the ability to program the room lighting as well as the sheer and blackout curtains via the TV and the ability to turn the whole room on and off via a switch by the door.
The Aria website has ground plans and a good virtual tour available for the Corner Suite
I’m not as big a fan of the dining options at Aria, but I do the the buffet and Julian Serrano. I also like the ability to walk over to Crystals for Social House and Todd English’s P.U.B. I have found Elements (the Aria lobby store) to have a lot of useful items including Mexican Coca-Cola.
Rooms run about $250 per night during the week and $420 on the weekends. This is about twice the cost of their base Deluxe King room. Aria is currently running a promotion giving you 30% the standard room rate (this includes suites) and a $100 resort dining credit. This is good for stays through April 3, 2013 and must be booked by December 10,2012. The offer code is ZFBN12W. Similar offers are available on a regular basis. Aria does have a nightly $25 resort fee, so you should factor that in when budgeting for your room, but it includes Internet access (Wi-Fi that is usable throughout the resort, not just in your room), fitness center access, boarding pass printing and a few other more mundane things.
I keep an eye out for offers and promotions discounting the Corner Suite rate every time I plan a trip to Las Vegas with hopes that I’ll be able to fit in a few days there.
