Whether you’re a fan of online poker or you like to hit the tables in person, you’ll know that Las Vegas is the place to go for the ultimate casino experience. What’s more, the city also has some of the top hotels in the country for casino-goers to enjoy.

Of course, there are plenty of high-quality hotels for in-person players and those that play poker online to enjoy. However, the ARIA Resort & Casino is truly a cut above the rest. 

Here’s what you have to look forward to when you visit the ARIA Resort & Casino.


Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, you know that the ARIA is going to be something special before you’ve even stepped foot inside. The sleek, curvilinear glass building stands out from the crowd on S Las Vegas Blvd and you’ll pass a serene wall of water before you enter the spacious lobby.

From here, things only get better in the ARIA. This stunning luxury resort has a unique design and sustainable design, and you’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows in every room. This gives you unbelievable panoramic views of the Spring Mountains of south Nevada… as well as the glinting lights of the Strip below.

The hotel is passionate about being environmentally friendly and sustainable. Lights dim automatically and turn off as guests leave the room and only eco-friendly products are used. The ARIA even used its predecessor’s (The Boardwalk, demolished in 2006) foundations to build on its well-positioned plot and construct the resort campus.

The rooms have a distinctive tech atmosphere with keyless locks, automated heating, curtains, lights, music and more. All of this can be controlled via each room’s Crave Interactive Tablets, which can also be used to book activities inside and outside of the hotel itself. The rooms themselves are furnished to the very highest standard and nothing has been spared on making them as luxurious as possible.

Hotel amenities

Whether you play poker online or you’re more a fan of in-person Texas Hold’em poker games, the amenities at the ARIA are simply outstanding and will delight any type of casino player. Let’s take a look at just a few of the amenities that you have to look forward to, all in one resort campus.

Pool complex and cabanas

If it’s a tan you’re after in between games, then you’ll be thrilled by the three separate pool areas found at the ARIA. Of course, each pool has its own poolside service, which means you can relax in your own private cabana and order whatever you desire from the food and drinks menu.


Visitors may be interested to know that The Spa at ARIA is the largest Forbes Five-Star Spa in the world. We’re not kidding! Here, you’ll find a full-service spa with an array of world-class skincare and massage treatments, as well as a number of specialist rooms for detoxing and pure relaxation.


Electric and vibrant, the entertainment value at the ARIA is second to none in Vegas and you’ll find anything from UFC and boxing to world-class acts at the Dolby Live at Park MGM. Then there’s the T-Mobile Arena, which seats 20,000 people and has hosted some of the biggest names in the music industry and continues to have a jam-packed schedule throughout the year. Of course, there are also a number of nightclubs and bars too.

For younger customers, there’s a dedicated gaming room with the best consoles and other modern tech to keep them entertained.

Fitness center

If you want to stay in shape on your holiday, then you’re in luck. The ARIA has a state-of-the-art fitness center that has all the innovative equipment you could ever need. All you need is motivation!


You’ll also find a wide range of shops within the ARIA Hotel & Casino that are perfectly poised to find that once-in-a-lifetime outfit, the latest fashion trends from leading designers or recently released gadgets.


ARIA is a foodie haven and there’s everything you could hope for and more. Jean Georges is the place to go for the best steak, while Julian Serrano has all the tapas you could dream of; you’ll find New York-inspired Italian-American cuisine at Carbone and you can even satisfy your sweet tooth at ARIA Patisserie. In fact, you won’t believe how many restaurants there are to choose from at ARIA – we’ve mentioned only a few! You’re bound to find something to satisfy even the most discerning palate without ever leaving the hotel.


Of course, one of the reasons most people visit Vegas is to enjoy a spot of gambling, and the ARIA has a world-class casino to enjoy. You’ll find an amazing array of slot machines, table games, an in-house sportsbook and much more. And you’ll also be able to satiate yourself at the number of in-casino restaurants and bars whenever you want if you want to stay in the middle of the action.

The poker room is probably the most famous aspect of ARIA’s casino. Aptly named “Table 1” Room, it has 24 plush tables for players to choose from and has hosted World Poker Tour events on the regular. In fact, Sean Yu won the inaugural WPT500 here in 2014. 

Fans of online poker tournaments should definitely check out the poker tournaments on offer here when you visit the ARIA in person. One such tourney is the first-ever $3,500 buy-in BetMGM Poker Championship, scheduled to take place June 23-26. This No-Limit Hold’em BetMGM Poker Championship has a guaranteed pool prize of $1 million, which could easily be surpassed. 

This is undoubtedly going to be one of the most exciting poker events of the year!
