LAS VEGAS -- The centerpiece of CityCenter is all set for a big grand opening Wednesday evening.

ARIA Resort & Casino boasts 4,000 rooms and dozens of restaurants and bars. It also has the only casino on the massive resort.

Luxury blended with technology promises guests at ARIA a one of a kind experience.

Will West is the CEO of Control4, the company that helped design the personalized features in all 4,004 rooms. "ARIA wanted to create an environment that was a much more comfortable, home-like and also energy efficient," he said.

Everything about ARIA and CityCenter is touted to be environmentally friendly. It's often invisible to the naked eye, but it's here. "That would be things like putting in the right fixtures for water and the right lighting in daylight," said Cindy Ortega, Senior Vice President of Energy and Environmental Design with MGM Mirage.

Ortega oversaw the green projects from start to finish. "You'll see that we used wood that was sustainably harvested. That's difficult to do in our size and scale," she said.

When it comes to size, ARIA is the third largest hotel on the Strip boasting 16 restaurants, including a buffet, 10 bars and lounges, a nightclub and the only gaming floor in the city within a city.

From the 39th floor, you can see the magnificent view of that city in its entirety.

ARIA is expected to open around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday complete with fireworks. Room rates start at $149 a night.
