Aria Resort and Casino Opens in Las Vegas CityCenter


I’m really looking forward to seeing CITYCENTER Las Vegas on the trip to CES 2010 in January. Just a few days ago the Aria Resort and Casino opened in a blaze of fireworks, and the Vdara Hotel opened just a few weeks ago.

Aria Resort Grand Opening Special:

Disclosure: Aria Resort and Vdara Hotel are sponsors of the CES Coverage at my Tech News and Conference blog Technology Report.

  1. Aria’s definitely a big chunk of property, and took a big chunk of change, eh–now the largest resort in Vegass-town, I believe. MGM with some asian capital methinks built it–16 restaurants, like 4000+ rooms, pools, spas and……VIVA ELVIS, by cirque de soleil. (yo, Byronia of New Worlds could put his Elvis-impersonator skills to work!!!!).

    Looks classy, Duck. Then most mafia joints do….:-]

  2. Some commentators have likened it to the Upper West Side of Manhattan: great shops, great restaurants, great bars … and none of it removed from the real world. Its a casino without any theme of rainforrests, pyramids or Tuscan troubadors.

  3. Tuscan troubadours.

    Yeah they can be fairly obnoxious, but nothin’ like Tuscon troubadours, especially ones who love….Elvis! (er, Elvis-in-Orbit). Even the wise-guys of Aria realize Elvis manga still carries some weight, at least vegass-way. That said, Aria looks something like…….Babylon to some of us.

  4. Speaking of Babylon, the talented Byronia of New Worlds doesn’t limit, er, itself to Elvis or disco, but actually does a mean Sir Elton impression (tho’ sans…ivories). Maybe Cirque DS material when his t-shirt biz folds? Wunderbar.
