Sky Suites at the Aria Hotel, Las Vegas

When I travel, I have been lucky enough to stay in a diverse range of hotels, homes, hostels and accommodations. From gorgeous suites to shared dorms, plush rooms to campsites, quaint B & Bs to mid-range hotels, there truly is a time and an occasion for everything!

In Las Vegas, however, I love a bit of luxury. In a city devoted to decadence, it’s the perfect place to splurge on a suite and really enjoy the high life.

To quote Donna Meagle:

When Matthew and I went on our honeymoon in 2015, we stayed in two Vegas hotels, the MGM and the Aria. Both were nice hotels, but the Aria just blew us away with the quality of the rooms, the levels of service and the fantastic location, so when we added a Vegas leg onto our autumn trip last year, it had to be the Aria.

When we stay at the Aria, we like to stay in the Sky Suites, a part of the hotel with its own hidden entrance and quite a few hidden perks – limos to and from the airport, a great concierge service, a separate pool, and a little reception area which is stocked with water, soft drinks and snacks (this was a godsend in the air conditioned Vegas lifestyle!).

This time we opted for a corner suite, up on the 31st floor, and it did not disappoint.

As you enter you encounter a chilled blast from the air conditioning, and you have plenty of time to explore while you await the bell hops with your luggage.

The bedroom, dining and lounge areas all have floor to ceiling windows, offering amazing views over the Strip on one side, and out across the desert in the other direction. The sunsets on the western side were amazing, and it was fun to helicopter-watch as the tours flew by in the middle distance too!

The kitchen/dining area is neat and pretty, with storage for snacks on the sides and in the fridge as well as a fully stocked mini bar to enjoy.

The table came in so handy on the evenings or morning we opted for room service. The Aria does an amazing club sandwich (my favourite room service order!).

From the dining room windows we could wave to the MGM and Monte Carlo casinos, if we so desired.

Beside the dining area there was this lovely little spot – perfect for some light reading or a morning ponder with a cup of coffee.

As well as the sofa area the living space also had a big desk – perfect if you’re a captain of industry who finds themselves in Las Vegas. Also good if you just want to send a few emails.

This couch was so comfy to curl up on and watch a little TV once we retired for the night.

The bedroom was spacious and comfortable, with a huge bed which managed to be both firm and soft. No mean feat! The sheets were high thread count wonders.

Both the living room and the bedroom had big TVs, for watching TV, listening to music, and controlling the many features of the room. When the turndown service arrived each evening, as well as drawing the blinds, tidying away any messes and prepping the bed, they’d also leave the ‘Smooth Jazz’ channel playing gently. It became our nightly welcome home.

From the bedroom window you could see out across the suburbs and the desert to the mountains in the distance.

The finish of the bedroom was luxurious, with beautiful furniture, fabrics and features, and plenty of high-tech nods too – tablets to control the room, different lighting programs, and other little touches.

The bathroom was generous and well-appointed. Next to the his-and-hers sinks you could find most of the toiletries you could ever desire, and if you couldn’t there were many others you could request from reception. Case in point, on one evening I wanted to straighten my hair for dinner – a quick call down to reception garnered not only some hairspray, but a pair of ceramic straighteners too!

The jacuzzi bath was a firm favourite of mine, while Matthew loved the shower with steam function. Love having a chance to pamper!

There was ample closet space, and an extra powder room near to the entrance if the main bathroom was in use.

And throughout there were these gorgeous views.

The little touches really added to the experience, whether it was the daily papers, the ease of booking tables through the concierge (and always an excellent table, too), the details around the suite, or the nightly wine and cheese in the Sky Suites reception each evening.

 We had such a wonderful time at the Aria, during both of our stays. The hotel is beautiful, the suites exquisite, and the staff very friendly and helpful. I hope we can return when we next take a trip to Las Vegas!

    We absolutely love Vegas. Haven't stayed at Aria would definitely consider it with that level of luxury for our next trip. Thanks for sharing Claire

    Bathrooms, closet space and views – that's how I can always tell an awesome hotel from an OK one, and this looks EPIC. Cx

    I stayed at the Aria (just in a regular room) when I went 5 years ago, and loved it. Such a great hotel. The Sky Suites look fabulous! Vegas is such a fun place to visit.

    This looks incredibly luxurious and makes me kinda miss Vegas a little which I never thought I'd say! x

    Gorgeous place, I just went here with someone. The NYC venues were beautiful and spacious, the seats were comfortable and wide. From where I was sitting at least, the views were great. I think the music really did a great job of filling up the space.
