The Monte Carlo is an attractive resort located on the Strip -- right in the heart of all the action near the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. Guests who stay here are within walking distance of several of the city's largest resorts and must-do attractions. Plus, they will delight in lofty accommodations without the elevated price.  In addition, the Monte Carlo is perfect for adults seeking a relaxed atmosphere amid Sin City's "visitors gone wild" vibe. This resort tends to attract a mature, more laid-back crowd. It's rarely besieged by college-age revelers or families with lots of tots in tow.  A pedestrian-oriented plaza has been built along Monte Carlo's Strip-facing facade. It features the Double Barrel Roadhouse, a sprawling indoor/outdoor venue with a rustic barn vibe and live music. Double Barrel Roadhouse also serves American comfort food with an array of craft cocktails and beers. There's a Japanese-inspired grill and noodle house by Chicago chef Matthias Merges called Yusho. You can sit in the kitchen area to watch the open-flame cooking style as well as in the bar, main dining room or outdoor patio. At 800 Degrees Pizzeria, you can indulge in specialty pizzas, meatballs, salads and truffle cheese bread, or at BLVD Creamery there are 24 ice cream and sorbet flavors -- and many of them are inventive, like the #WTJ, watermelon sorbet infused with jalapeño. Capping things off is the coffee shop Sambalatte. From late afternoon until late night, a rotating roster of live bands, solo musicians and street performers appear in the plaza.MGM Resorts has begun construction on an 8-acre dining and entertainment district called The Park in the street between Monte Carlo and New York-New York. The Park will not only house more casual eateries and bars, but it will also connect to a new 20,000-seat arena being developed in partnership with AEG. Elements of The Park will begin to appear at the end of 2014 and throughout 2015, with the arena scheduled to open in 2016.Although inside the Monte Carlo the attitude is laid-back, there are still plenty of fun things to enjoy. The showroom has bragging rights to a variety of big-name entertainers, with the Blue Man Group adding their colorful touch to the place.  Culinary perfection is also at your doorstep in the Monte Carlo. At Andre's Restaurant & Lounge, chef Andre Rochat creates a menu with Old World charm, highlighting the best ingredients available each season. Brand Steakhouse is known for its heavenly preparations of oversized steaks and chops. Diablo's Cantina serves devilishly delicious Mexican cuisine in a fiesta-like atmosphere, while d.Vino offers wine enthusiasts countless selections for sampling paired with their signature wood-fired pizza. And for those on the go, the Monte Carlo has casual bites in The Café and The Buffet, which features an exhibition-style kitchen. Another unpretentious spot for a nibble as well as the odd pint and some great music courtesy of dueling pianos is The Pub. Insider tip: If the massive main room looks intimidating, take your brew outside on the back patio, which faces the pool -- or there is seating upstairs. Two other unique nightlife venues at the Monte Carlo are the icy wonderland of the Minus5 Ice Bar, where parkas, scarves and gloves are among the recommended attire, and the Ignite Lounge with its LED color-changing lights.Guests can always retreat from the harried pace of the Strip and the casino into the serene parts of the hotel. Along with a lushly landscaped, sun-drenched pool complex (complete with a 400-foot-long lazy river, a sand volleyball court and comfortable cabanas), there's the tranquil Spa & Salon Monte Carlo. Indulge in a variety of fabulous facials and massages at the spa or get your hair done for a night on the town in the salon.If there's anything else you want or need during your Vegas visit, the resort is home to the Street of Dreams. A shopper's paradise, it's packed with women’s and men’s fashions, souvenirs, sunglasses, rock memorabilia and candy. There is also a stop here for a free tram that connects the property to Crystals at CityCenter and the Bellagio.The Monte Carlo's décor is exquisite, done with imported marble and rich wood furnishings. Crystal chandeliers and sculptured fountains add to the Europe-like elegance. Similarly, the rooms are well appointed. Beds come with fine linens, bathrooms utilize Italian marble and standard amenities include 40-inch LCD cable TVs and iHome docking stations.Another unique component of the Monte Carlo is HOTEL32, situated on the 32nd floor. An exclusive hotel within a hotel, it features five types of suites -- ranging from studios to two-bedroom penthouses. Along with the spectacular view, all of them boast high-tech amenities like BluRay players, multiple flat-screen TVs (including one in the bathroom mirror), and a remote control for the lights, drapes and electronics. Plus, the pampering is over the top. Guests have a personal suite assistant as well as access to limo service. Added touches include welcome amenities, signature turndown gifts and a refrigerator stocked to your preference.When you come right down to it, at the Monte Carlo you get luxury combined with a broad range of dining, shopping and pampering venues -- all headquartered at one of the most ideal locations on the Strip.

PostedAugust 5, 2012
My wife and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary and were very pleased with the hotel. We felt if was family friendly with its set up, it had a large casino, the pool was smaller than expected but there were three options for pools. The staff was very friendly, the hotel was clean, and there were pretty good food options. My wife and I go to Vegas 1-2 times a year and stay at different hotels each time, we both mentioned we would stay here again without question.

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 then 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. They also have the Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed for when you need a pick-me-up or Her Alibi when you’re on the run from the law and need something to mellow you out. Whatever drink you choose, the space doesn’t feel like your typical lobby bar. Alibi, as well as Aria’s other bars like Lift Bar and the Deuce Lounge also serves a special extra pale ale exclusive to Aria and crafted by the local Sin City Brewing company.But there are other things to do at Aria besides drinking. We follow up great cocktails with a stop at  Julian Serrano for delicious tapas to share with a special friend or complete strangers if you happen to run into some people you like. Bar Masa remarkably transforms an industrial, airy space into a serene dining experience. Jean Georges Steakhouse brings meat and seafood together like a surf and turf fit for royalty, or at least a celebrity. And Five50 Pizza serves up some of the tastiest pizza you can imagine. With casual dining like the Aria Café, sweet treats at the Jean Philippe Pâtisserie 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.In between those adventures, enjoy "Zarkana" by Cirque du Soleil. If you’ve never seen a Cirque du Soleil show before, Zarkana will blow your mind. If you think you’ve seen them all, then still give Zarkana a shot because we’re betting you’ve still got a little mind left to be blown.When the weather is warm enough, which for Vegas means a good chunk of the year, guests can cannonball like a boss into three pools spread across a 215,000-square-foot deck laden with palm trees and lush landscaping and 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 from Chef Brian Massie. And once you’re tired from a morning of laying in the sun eating a drinking, the Spa and Salon stretches between two levels and includes meditation and relaxation rooms, eucalyptus steam rooms, redwood saunas, a deluxe fitness room, a group exercise studio, velvety facials, therapeutic massages and hydrotherapy treatments – so basically anything you could think of that someone could do to your body to help you relax while still being within the law.Shopping also abounds at Aria. Terrene carries one-of-a-kind designer apparel and jewelry for women, while men can get outfitted at Aria Men's store. Also stop by Radiance (an art gallery), Papillon (an accessories store) and Elements (a design and sundries shop). And for even more upscale splurging on stuff you can show off when you get home, Crystals at CityCenter is just outside Aria’s main lobby. You can stop by just to shop or wind your way around the center to find yourself on the Strip.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. In the lobby, you'll catch sight of "Silver River" by New York-based artist Maya Lin. The 84-foot sculpture of the Colorado River was made from 100 percent reclaimed silver. Also visible through windows in the lobby is a well-known sculpture by Henry Moore situated in the park between Aria and Crystals. Made from Italian travertine marble, "Reclining Connected Forms" depicts a baby wrapped in its mother's arms. And, at the south entrance by the stairs to the self-parking garage, sit three striking stainless steel sculptures -- "Bolt," "Bent of Mind" and "Untitled/Tall Column" -- by British-born artist Tony Cragg.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 90 video screens ranging in size from 32 to 103 inches, an elegant poker room framed by sculptures of playing cards and even an exclusive one-table "Ivey Room," named in honor of seven-time World Series of Poker champion Phil Ivey. That makes for a lot of gambling or just a lot of standing around and watching people gambling once you’re out of money. Aria is a beautiful spot for either.And the property is even environmentally friendly earning 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 then 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.
