Aria Executive Hospitality Suite Review

I had a weekend in Vegas planned at Aria.  The standard room was comped (besides the nearly $40 resort fee) for the two nights (plus $100 resort credit and $100 free slot play).  6 weeks before my stay I received an upgrade offer via email.  For $75/night I could upgrade to a Corner Suite.

There are a number of levels of Aria’s Tower Suites (not to be confused with the Sky Suites).

  • Studio Suite* (840 sq ft)
  • Corner Suite (920 sq ft – Mountain* or Strip View)
  • Tower/Crystals Suite (1000 sq ft)
  • Center Suite (1070 sq ft)
  • Executive Hospitality Suite (2000 sq ft)

Yes, it is quite confusing.

Aria’s Tower Suites are a new category created within the last year.  They are on the same floor as the standard rooms, unlike the Sky Suites.  They are larger than standard Aria rooms.  The extra amenities of the Tower Suites include:

  • Airport transfer *Not offered for Studio or Corner Suite Mountain View rooms
  • Tower Suites Lounge
  • Concierge service – supposedly they call you to arrange anything you need before your trip, I never got this call.
  • Welcome amenity – I was not given mine.  When I called down to find out what it was, I was told it was a rice crispy treat.
  • Turn down service
  • Taxi line pass
  • Upgraded bathroom amenities

Upon check in I was told I had been upgraded to an Aria Executive Hospitality Suite.  I was traveling solo so no clue what I would do with the space but not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth.

I was assigned room 05-249 on the 5th floor.  A very low floor so no expectation of a view.  The room was at the very end of the hall, I think as far from the elevators as possible.  One of the windows looks out to the wall of the Spa for orientation of location.

The double doors open into a large stone entry with closet and glass window peak through to the living room. At the end of the entry was the powder room.

The entry opened up into the middle of the living room area.  Mini bar and fridge (with ice maker) was closest to the powder room.  Across from the mini bar was the breakfast/wet bar with a small sink and tv.  The living room had a large couch, four arm chairs and tv.  Views were of the pool.

Behind glass sliding doors was the “board room” with a large conference table with seating for ten (plus two additional chairs away from the table).  Floor to ceiling windows were on three walls.  A huge tv was in front of the window that looked out towards Vdara.

The bedroom in the Aria Executive Hospitality Suite has one king bed with views of the pool.  The entire Aria Executive Hospitality Suite can be controlled by any of the three tablets located throughout.  It is a bit confusing.  If you are a luddite you can also control the shades, temperature, lights etc from wall mounted controls.

The bathroom has double doors off the bedroom.  In the middle is a large jetted jacuzzi tub.  Along one wall is the double vanity and the other wall is a large closet.  The back wall has the toilet (complete with bidet) and shower/steam room.

Turn down service included waters, chocolates and slippers.  I did have to call the first night, the second night they came automatically.

In the morning I ordered room service, because, why not?  I used part of my resort credit to cover it.  Juice, strawberries and french toast was $60 after delivery and tip.  Yeah, no way I would have paid that without my credit.  It was tasty however and convenient!

Wifi was quite fast the first day but SLOW the second.  I can’t imagine using the room for business if the Wifi as slow as I experience.

Looks like the Aria Executive Hospitality Suite starts at $520/night on weekends.  I’m not sure who would book it unless you were going to have some sort of work meeting/reception.  I loved having it, but had no use for the conference room portion.
