AAA Editor Notes
CityCenter Las Vegas is at 3720 Las Vegas Blvd. S. (between Bellagio and Park MGM). This high-profile complex includes three hotel properties—ARIA Resort & Casino, Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas and Vdara Hotel & Spa—the all-residential Veer Towers and The Shops at Crystals, an upscale shopping mall. Between ARIA and the Waldorf Astoria are a handful of sculptures along the walkway between the two hotels, including Claes Oldenburg's and Coosje van Bruggen's whimsical “Typewriter Eraser, Scale X.”

Skybar, on the 23rd floor of the ultra-luxe Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas, boasts nice views of the Strip. In front of the Vdara, on an island across from the valet driveway, is “Big Edge,” a large-scale sculpture created from salvaged kayaks, canoes, rowboats and other vessels. This attention-getting piece fits right in with other examples of wacky Vegas eye candy.

The Veer Towers have a yellow-and-black checkered exterior and lean in opposite directions at a 5-degree angle. Adding to the prevailing futuristic Jetsons vibe is the people-mover tram that winds through CityCenter on an elevated track and an art installation of otherworldly colored light in the Crystals tram station, designed by artist James Turrell. This self-described “city within a city” even creates its own wind canyon effect, a loud whining hum that's quite evident on breezy days as you walk from ARIA to the Waldorf Astoria.
