The Aria is one of my go-to hotels and always ends up towards the top of the list no matter what type of trip I am taking. Its central location is a huge draw and is connected to Crystals shopping mall which is one of the stops for the MGM tram.
I do believe it is missing some less expensive options (which is why I rate Cosmo as the top), but it is easy enough to head to NY-NY or across the street to Planet Hollywood to find more affordable options. But if you want options for great food, Aria is a top choice.
The Aria has a number of amazing restaurants including my current favorite in Vegas, Sage. There are plenty of other amazing spots, including Lemongrass (Thai), Julian Serrano Tapas, Jean Georges Steakhouse, Carbon (Italian), Bardot (French), Blossom (Chinese), Javier’s (Mexican), Five50 (pizza) and Herringbone (seafood). I am confident in saying that each concept is one of the best in class in Vegas and as a whole, Aria has my second favorite dining on the strip.
Aria has one of the best pool complexes on the strip and offers a number of pools to relax. It also is home to the Liquid Pool Lounge, which is a smaller, more intimate club than the mega-clubs for those that appreciate that.
Jewel nightclub knows how to throw a party and brings in some top talent, the Aria offers a nice array of bars and nightlife. If you are looking to rage, there are probably better options, but if you want a more classy party scene, Aria has you covered.
The casino has a hip, masculine vibe and is one of the most interesting on the strip. You won’t get the scenic views like you would from the Bellagio or The Cosmo, but the rooms are nice and have plenty of tech.
Overall, Aria is good at everything, which means its a great location for a couples trip, a group trip, an upscale bachelor/bachelorette party, or just a quick trip to Vegas.

Rewards for Aria include (as of March 2019):
Aria is an excellent choice for Bachelor and Bachelorette parties for groups that want a luxury option. The location has an awesome spa, large pool area, Liquid Pool Lounge, Jewel Nightclub, and plenty of bars and lounges throughout the property.
Aria has great restaurants and its central location makes it easy to get to nearly anywhere on the strip. No matter what you are looking to do, Aria will be in the heart.
If you are looking for a wild, crazy time or a budget friendly option, Aria may not be the best choice. It can be one of the more pricey options on the strip, so depending on what you are looking to get into, it can be a good option.
