CityCenter Las Vegas Receives AAA Five Diamond Award

Less than a year after opening, CityCenter Las Vegas has received the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award for both ARIA Resort & Casino and Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, it announced last month.

"It takes an incredibly special hotel or resort to earn the Five Diamond distinction after being open less than a year," AAA Nevada spokesperson Michael Geeser said in a statement. "These properties deliver the ultimate in luxury, sophistication and exceptional service."

The AAA Five Diamond Award is bestowed on only 0.27 percent of the AAA-rated venues in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

"From inception to operation, our goal with CityCenter was to create a resort destination that provides guests with services and amenities unmatched in the world," said CityCenter President and CEO Bobby Baldwin. "To receive the highest honor in the industry with the AAA Five Diamond Award is a reflection of our commitment to this promise and to delivering unforgettable experiences for each guest from arrival to departure."

ARIA Resort & Casino opened on Dec. 16, 2009, with 4,004 guest rooms and 300,000 square feet of meeting space. Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, meanwhile, opened on Dec. 5 with 392 guest rooms and over 12,000 square feet of meeting space.
