The ARIA Resort & Casino and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the new Las Vegas CityCenter Project are the first in the USA to debut a spectacular level of technological innovation for their guests.
A WiFi City opens at CITYCENTER Las Vegas:
CityCenter now offers the world’s largest distributed antenna system. Over 6,500 antennas and over 2,900 wireless access points cover the Las Vegas CITYCENTER complex which is located directly south of the Bellagio on Las Vegas Boulevard, also called “The Las Vegas Strip”.
Aria’s Amazing Guestroom Technologies:
At the Aria Resort and Mandarin Hotels you’ll find “smart” automation for every guestroom. Every device is networked via one gigabit of bandwidth.
The room will recognize a first visit and “greet” guests as they enter with lighting and parting of curtains to showcase the hotel’s spectacular city or mountain views. The TV will turn on to display a list of automated controls for guests to personalize.
The system also provides one-touch remote control of lighting, room temperature, television/video systems, music, wake-up calls, draperies and requests for services. A remote control directs devices in the room or the guest can use the nightstand’s a seven-inch touch panel.
RFID unlocks the door via key card and sensor.
Aria rooms all feature a 42-inch LCD HDTV with laptop and other device connectivity as well as access to room controls. The TV also acts as a communications center for the room.
The ARIA Resort & Casino opened December 17 and is located in the Las Vegas CityCenter project.
