Oh.. the fountain is fairly small. I thought you were talking about the project itself.

A striking and very modern architectural accomplishment. Haven't been to Vegas in something like 5 years, now I wanna go again!

Great project. How is the vacancy / occupation rate? It looks kinda like a ghost town, probably because it is so new.

Stayed at the Aria about 2 weeks ago. It was down to $109 w/ 50 food and bev credit, and $50 free slots play, so the room was basically $9 bucks.

The pool was closed due to weather. The buffet was ok. The casino floor relatively small, but the room was AMAZING. Hands down the most tech-advanced hotel I've ever stayed at.

hahaha if you find a hotel in vegas that cheap, you are probably on some hobos streetcorner property

so with those benefits, is that once a day 50$ food and drink and 50 for slots or once per visit? i just checked expedia for the Vdara condo-hotel and its cheaper than aria

from seatac airport, august 2010
aria: $548/person for 4 nights, includes flights
vdara:$470/person for 4 nights, includes flights
