CityCenter Las Vegas is Springing to Life and Showcasing World Class Technologies [A Sponsor Thank You Post]

Disclosure:  Please note that the Aria Resort and Casino and Vdara Hotel are this year’s Sponsors for our Technology Report Coverage of the CES 2010 Conference.  For our disclosure statement please click here.

Here at Technology Report we’re gearing up for the biggest computer technology show of the year, CES Las Vegas.     We’re also very excited to see the world’s largest and most technologically sophisticated construction projects come to life in the center of the Las Vegas Strip:   CityCenter Las Vegas, which includes a group of remarkable properties including two that are our sponsors this year for the CES Conference Coverage:   Vdara Hotel and Aria Resort and Casino.     Even by the blockbuster building standards of Las Vegas, CityCenter is a remarkable new addition to the Las Vegas landscape.   Located along the strip just to the south of the Bellagio Hotel, CityCenter is a virtual city within a city.     Several of the properties are now open such as the Vdara Hotel, Crystals Retail and Entertainment Center, and the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

The Aria Resort and Casino opens December 16, just in time for the year’s biggest show: CES Las Vegas.   The Aria will offer guests the most advanced hotel guest services and green building technologies in the world as noted below.

For the first time outside of very select prior installations, CityCenter and Control4 have created a personalized “smart” automation for every guestroom at the Aria Resort and the Mandarin Oriental.   Every guestroom device is networked via a full gigabit of bandwidth.

Rooms will greet the guests for their first entry using  lighting and curtain controls and an introduction to the TV room controls.

Rooms have  one-touch remote control of lighting, room temperature, television/video systems, music, wake-up calls, draperies and requests for services.   Nightstands are also equipped with a touchscreen for room controls.

All the Aria rooms feature 42″   HDTVs, laptop connectivity, and access to room controls.   The TV also acts as a communications center for the room.

If you don’t have your reservations yet for CES 2010 (or even if you do!), you’ll want to consider a stay at the Aria Resort and Casino.    Click here to book now.
