CES Las Vegas: Where to Stay and Play

Destination(s): Las Vegas

The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is the world’s largest consumer technology show. In 2010, 100,000 attendees are expected at this industry professionals-only show. If you’re planning on spending four days taking in the newest, sleekest, and most advanced technology, you’ve also got four evenings to experience Las Vegas. From ice bars to hot shows, Las Vegas is ready to fill your evenings with entertainment that’s just as eye-popping as all those snazzy electronics. ~Picture by Laura Leavell~ read more about CES Las Vegas: Where to Stay and Play

Aria is the flagship of the ambition CityCenter development, the Las Vegas Strip's mixed-use complex with an assortment of hotels, shops, gaming, artwork, and restaurants. Opened at the end of 2009, Aria's high-tech appearance and accoutrements wowed the masses--a casino with natural light (almost unheard of), huge flatscreens in the rooms, a remote control for everything, and a programmable room thermostat. For the visitor who loves high-tech and luxury, Aria has it all.

Thirteen restaurants are on site, including big names like Michael Mina's American Fish, a Jean-Georges Steakhouse, and Julian Serrano. Haze nightclub and Gold Lounge (a bar designed for your inner Elvis) give guests a selection of nightlife, and Cirque du Soleil's tribute to the King, "Viva Elvis," plays in Aria's theater.

Artwork throughout the property includes a piece by Maya Lin, creator of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. Fountains grace the property, and are a part of the art program. Adjacent to Aria, visitors will find a large shopping complex, Crystals.

No Las Vegas hotel would be complete without a killer pool, and Aria has three pools. Their adults-only pool club, Liquid, is fully loaded with cabanas, daybeds, and cool D.J.'s.

The Stratosphere is America's tallest observation tower (1,149 feet) and one of the tallest structures west of the Mississippi River. At the very top, the daring get their adrenaline going on one of the thrill rides: The Big Shot, which shoots its riders into the air; the X-Scream, a teeter-totter that dangles you over the side; the Insanity, which spins you over a thousand feet of thin air; and the Sky Jump, where you can free-fall your way to the bottom.

You don't have to be a thrill seeker to visit the top of the Stratosphere. A rotating restaurant, the Top of the World Restaurant, takes advantage of the view to offer a memorable meal. You'll also find bars and lounges here.

Tickets to the top of the Stratosphere are $16. An indoor and outdoor observation deck are available. The Stratosphere's wedding chapel also offers services at the top.
