When I visited Las Vegas 2 years ago this architectural marvel was still under construction. I could tell that something amazing was unfolding behind all the scaffolding. On our daily stoles down the strip I couldn’t help but stare and wonder what was going on inside, and knew that once it was finished I would definitely have to check it out. Though I’ve not made it back to Vegas, last weeks episode of The Bachelor gave me a sneak peak, and needless to say, it’s amazing. 

Here's a short clip from the architect on how his concepts, ideas, and passion shaped the most innovative resort-casino the Las Vegas Strip has ever seen.

The exterior is what originally drew me to the building(s). ARIA is just one many buildings that make up the CityCenter.


On the episode of the Bachelor that I mentioned, Brad takes Shawntel on a shopping spree. Let's just say the other girls on the trip weren't the only jealous ones.


The interiors are very modern, which is something that's not seen a whole lot in Vegas' themed resorts.
