Opened in December 2009, the casino-less Vdara is one of the few places in Vegas without a gimmick. In fact, the design of the property’s 1,495 suites and 18,000-square-foot spa brings to mind the kind of words you rarely hear uttered in Sin City: subdued and peaceful. It also offers a unique perspective on Vegas: you get access to all of the city’s over-the-top wonders (casinos and some of the best new restaurants in town, courtesy or ARIA and Bellagio, connected by a pedestrian walkway), but somehow Vdara feels like an escape.
Bed & Bath
The property’s suites are spacious and decorated in far-from-gaudy tones of green, brown and orange. All suites have minibars and kitchenettes equipped with microwaves, two-burner stoves and refrigerators (two bottles of water are included in the resort fee). A dining table and plush couches with sweeping views — of the Strip, the mountains, or the lit-up Bellagio fountain doing its nightly dance — put the emphasis on the comforts of home.
Instead of a casino, the resort has invested in the two-story ESPA at Vdara, where guests can indulge in natural treatments unique to ESPA at Vdara. Better yet, start you treatments with an array of European heat experiences and muse on which part of what happened in Vegas you’ll be leaving in Vegas. Dine on small bites and indulge in handcrafted cocktails at Bar Vdara and the Pool & Lounge Vdara. Or stop by Market Café Vdara, a casual spot for picking up coffee and groceries that guests can take back to their suites.
How to Get There
This hotel is amazing. From walking into to the hotel, to the jaw-dropping awe of the rooms as you see them for the first time. The staff(except 1 bartender) had flawless service.... I mean flawless. We can't wait to come back and stay again.
Very comfortable hotel with great location just off the strip beside the Aria and Bellagio hotels. The basic suite was a great size for a family of four with Kitchenette and small dining area, a large bedroom and lounge and a lovely bathroom with great walk in shower and separate bath. Only criticism would be the sofa bed that my children were sharing was a bit slopey. But my younger one just set up her own bed with the sofa cushions down the side. Being a family quite nice that the hotel didn’t have a casino - but one close by at the Aria if you wanted one. The pool was also great as well as our view from our 35th floor room!
Spent five great nights at the Vdara in April. The room was nice and had excellent views of the fountains at the Bellagio. The room appeared just as the photos online showed. We were on the 29th floor but could still hear trucks backing up and unloading in the early morning so downloaded a ‘white noise’ app for my phone and used that each night thereafter and that solved the problem.
There is no direct access to the strip from the Vdara but you can get there by taking stairs to your left after exiting the hotel or go through the Bellagio or Aria. I think this made it better - it was certainly less expensive to stay here rather than the Aria, Bellagio or Cosmopolitan. There is no casino or smoking at the Vdara but that is why we chose this place.
Check in was smooth and you need to show your door pass before you go by security to access the elevators. I saw many people with their dogs and that is a great option if we could have brought our dog with us.
This was my 3rd time to Vegas and This is one of my favorite hotels in Vegas just simply because it is a lot more recent than some others and on top there isn’t a casino and no smoking is allowed. It also doesn’t have a night club but you can get to the other hotels night clubs in a short wall thru the casinos A/C.
Myself and my wife stayed for 17 nights from 3rd July 2018.we are from the Uk and visit Vegas every year (20 years in a row) we have stayed at every 5 star on the strip so can compare with all the others.
The hotel is nice,smells great(no smoky casino) rooms are ok and quiet.The great advantage of this hotel is that
It is 100yards from aria,bellagio and cosmopolitan so perfect to use as a base.the lobby bar is good and the bartenders friendly and do great cocktails. If you want more than this walk the 100yards in any direction and you can have it,but it is always nice to return to the quiet serenity of the vdara.Value is great.We didn’t have too many gripes,valet guys were super friendly and efficient. Special call out for Mercedes in the valet office,she always gave me a big smile. Pool is kinda small because this property was originally built as condos,but cabanas and reserved chair prices are reasonable so plan ahead and you will get what you want.
On the day of checkout we had a late flight back to the Uk(9.30pm) so needed somewhere to shower later in the afternoon,the day spa costs $30 per person which meant we could stay all day at the pool and then get showered at the hotel without having to book another room.
All in all our experience was very pleasant and from now on will always stay at this property and recommend to friends.
