ARIA first City Center resort to open December 2009, Las Vegas

MGM Mirage have announced the opening of their latest super resort ARIA on December 16th 2009, this will be the first property to open on the amazing City Center development. City Center is the huge area between Monte Carlo and Bellagio and will feature a combination or Hotels, Casinos, Condos, retail, conferencing  and even two monorail stations nothing has ever been seen like this in Las Vegas or otherwise. ARIA will bring a new level of luxury to Las Vegas and this will be the resort that others are measure by, its been a long time in coming but then MGM Mirage are never ones to rush anything . If you want to be some of the first people to stay at ARIA you can book now or visit the ARIA homepage to find out more.

Deluxe Rooms and Deluxe city View Rooms average at 520 sq feet and come with all the latest electronic amenities including a 42” HD TV and 7” touch screen remote controls controlling everything in the room and allowing you to personalise to the room so it suits your taste.

There are 4 levels of standards suites, Corner Suite, Crystals Suite, Cirrus Suite and Hospitality Suite, all offering the ultimate suite luxury experience along with the very best in modern conveniences and every feature you could want or even imagine.

Above the level of suites are the ARIA Skylofts these are similar to the MGM Skylofts and if stars of rock and film come to stay in Vegas this will most likely be the accommodation of their choice and way out of the pockets of us.

Probably most exciting for me will be the new Cirque du Soeil,  Elvis inspired show that’s home will be in the new 1800 seater theatre at ARIA. “The king of rock ‘n’ roll will soon be back in the building in Las Vegas when ARIA presents a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The creative geniuses at Cirque du Soleil® have created a new show exclusively for ARIA. The production pays tribute to Elvis‘ music and life, fusing dance and acrobatics, live music and iconic tracks, nostalgia and modernity, high technology and raw emotion. In short, the show will be in Elvis’ image: powerful, sexy, whimsical and truly unique.”

Current state of building work on the Vegas Strip 1 June 2008

Everyone knows that Vegas is allways changing and allways reinventing itself every year there is somthing new and better, it’s a solid bet that when in Vegas you will allways see men in construction hats and mechanical diggers and hear the noise of building somwhere on The Strip. Below is a report from a guy who arrived back from Vegas at the end of last weekand gave the following report on the current building activity on The Las Vegas Strip.

Luxor – big changes happening inside, losing the egyptian theme, half of the casino area done already, reception area still the same.

New York, New York – part of the casino area closed off (the stage part), due to be finished late this year.

Planet Holywood – Casino area finished now (looks very impressive), pool area and shops still in the old Aladdin style.

CITY CENTRE – WOW – major bguilding site!!! I last went to Vegas 10 months ago, and cannot believe how far they have got with it all.

Monte Carlo – I feel sorry for those staying the this hotel if you want to spend time by the pool. This is currently open to non-residents and I can see why, it is surrounded by building work so close from the CITY CENTRE project, really noisy!!

Caesars Palace – New tower being built, but causes no disruption as building work is off the strip really.

Mirage – Volcano closed (due to re-open late this year), Moving walkway closed. All rooms being renovated – there is a disply of the rooms in the reception area (looks really good).

TI (Treasure Island) – stayed there and all rooms being renovated (these are really nice).

Palazzo – casino/rooms and shops all finished – very impressive looking. There is building work across from the TI where it looks as though they are building some sort of shopping mall!!
