Resort Becomes One of Select Few in North America Offering Two Distinct Five Diamond Hotel Experiences Under One Roof
LAS VEGAS (August 9, 2011) – ARIA Resort & Casino, the crown jewel of CityCenter, has earned the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award for its Sky Suites, joining an elite class of resorts recognized with two AAA Five Diamond Awards for two distinct hotel experiences within one property.
In its first year of operation in 2010, ARIA Resort & Casino was recognized as a AAA Five Diamond resort, a distinction rare for hotels to achieve in such a short time. ARIA Sky Suites now joins this distinguished list of premier destinations, providing an unparalleled level of stylish accommodations and exemplary service from arrival to departure.
“This recognition is a true testament to the incredible dedication and commitment of each of our team members,” said Bill McBeath, ARIA’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “The elegant and sophisticated experience we have created within Sky Suites is unlike anything in Las Vegas and we strive to exceed guest expectations at every turn. The Five Diamonds tell us that we’ve accomplished just that.”
Michael Geeser, AAA Nevada’s spokesperson, said, “ARIA Sky Suites has earned a AAA Five Diamond rating because it has all the characteristics of luxury and sophistication. The Sky Suites’ standard of excellence meets the expectations of the most distinguished travelers and it is truly a first- class addition to Las Vegas.”
The ARIA Sky Suites offers a collection of exquisite accommodations including one and two-bedroom ARIA Suites, one and two-bedroom Penthouse Suites and the preeminent Sky Villas, featuring spacious one and two-story retreats ranging up to 7,000 square feet.
A “hotel within a hotel,” ARIA Sky Suites was masterfully designed with guest privacy, comfort and convenience as priorities. Creating a seamless and exhilarating experience from the very beginning, a personal concierge contacts each guest prior to arrival in order to prepare for their every need and develop a customized itinerary.
After landing in Las Vegas, guests can begin the relaxation as their private limousine transports them from the airport to the ARIA Sky Suites. They will arrive beneath a private, secluded porte cochere where they will be greeted and escorted to a dedicated VIP check-in. After enjoying a drink and a few sumptuous hors d'oeuvres in the exclusive Sky Suites Lounge, a private elevator delivers guests to the comfort of their own suite.
Each of the stunning accommodations throughout ARIA Sky Suites features contemporary furnishings, sophisticated decor, expressive artwork, unparalleled amenities and floor-to-ceiling windows providing dramatic views of the Las Vegas skyline. Designed for the ultimate convenience, each Sky Suite features the most modern technology allowing guests to personalize their temperature, lighting, curtain and musical preferences throughout their stay – with the simple touch of a button.
ARIA Sky Suites consists of 442 Deluxe rooms, suites and villas, all located on the 25th through 59th floors of the South Tower.
The AAA Five Diamonds are North America’s most sought-after symbol of excellence in the hospitality industry, representing the upper echelon of hotel and dining establishments.
Collectively, AAA Five Diamond hotels and restaurants represent only 0.3 percent of the total 59,000 AAA Approved and Diamond establishments across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
