Call it chic, hip or even minimalist, but all Aria really has to be is Aria for us to love it. Set back from the Strip, it eschews the foot traffic and embraces the fact that if you're there, it's exactly where you want to be.If you're a drinker, (because of course that's the first place we go with a review) you have to check out Alibi. The Rosemary Amoretti looks like a Jane Austen novel, smells like a flower shop in the middle of a meadow and tastes like just the best purple cocktail you've ever had.But there are other things to do at Aria besides drinking. We follow up great cocktails with a stop to Julian Serrano for delicious tapas to share with a special friend or complete strangers if you happen to run into some people you like. Jean Georges Steakhouse brings meat and seafood together like a surf and turf fit for royalty, or at least a celebrity. Michael Mina's Bardot Brasserie offers exotic French delicacies like foie gras en croute. And Five50 Pizza serves up some of the tastiest pizza you can imagine. With casual dining like the Aria Café, and since it's a hotel/casino, an exquisite buffet. Aria is one fine spot to fill your belly with food – before you go back for another cocktail.When the weather is warm enough, cannonball like a boss into three pools spread across a 215,000-square-foot deck laden with palm trees and lush landscaping or lay out in the sun at the Liquid Pool Lounge. Along with DJs spinning the hottest music and luxurious private cabanas and daybeds, you can indulge in refreshing cocktails from multiple bars and a mouth-wetting menu. And once you're tired from a morning of laying in the sun eating a drinking, the Spa and Salon has everything you need to rejuvinate your chakras.Shopping also abounds at Aria for men and women, alike. And for even more upscale splurging, The Shops at Crystals is located just outside Aria's main lobby. For the artistically minded, or anyone wanting to become artistically minded, Aria's fine art collection, which features a mix of prominent and up-and-coming artists, is among the most extensive around. Pieces have been integrated throughout indoor and outdoor public spaces on the property. Aria's casino boasts a unique layout, one that is spacious yet features discrete pockets of action like several small high-limit gaming areas, a fine sports book with various-sized video screens, an elegant poker room.The property is even environmentally friendly, having earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design's Gold certification for Aria's hotel tower, convention center and theater from the U.S. Green Building Council. That's a big, long way of saying it's pretty green. So if that's important to you, Aria is a good choice. And even if it's not, you can stay at Aria for all the other outstanding reasons and just claim to care about the environment too.With personalized, high-tech touch service and an artistic yet approachable feel, Aria is one of the Strip's brightest stars, even when they keep the casino floor dim. Whether you're taking in a show, grabbing a slice, taking someone's well-tested and very serious advice about cocktail selections or just passing through because that's where you ended up after walking through Crystals, Aria is one hotel/casino that will keep you interested and surely keep you coming back.

The Aria was very clean and well appointed. Certainly a 5 star quality. Our stay was very comfortable and fun.

There are some basic rules of magic. Never tell your audience how a trick is done, don't show the audience how you prep for a trick, and never, ever perform the classic cups and balls trick with transparent cups. Well, Penn and Teller manage to break all of these rules and more in their show at the Rio Hotel and Casino and it’s perfection.Just like every amazing duo, Penn and Teller have their strengths and weaknesses and combined, they create the perfect storm of comedy, magic and entertainment. The tall, lanky Penn serves as a narrator, providing a running comedic commentary on just about everything they do, while Teller handles much of the show's action, all without saying a single word.While there are some elements of classic magic and sleight of hand in the show, most of the tricks are incredibly creative, innovative and sometimes bordering on the macabre. Yep, knives are thrown, goldfish are materialized, and needles are swallowed… or are they? The fun of this show is that the duo lets the audience in on some of the tricks, but others are meant to completely mystify the crowd and it works. Comedic, mind-bending, and totally entertaining, Penn & Teller is a classic Vegas show that is a vacation rite of passage.

Too much talk, not enough action. Teller gave too much dialogue about each trick. His magic is great and if he reduces the conversations with the audience his performance would be great. Also it was very warm and muggy in the show.
