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
We have stayed at Vdara every time we have visited Vegas for the past several years. We love the hotel, the suites, the pool and cabanas. I love that there is no casino to walk through and that it is right between Bellagio and Aria. The lobby has a pleasant, clean flowery smell which is nice and it is an attractive lobby. We always have a quick, easy and problem free experience with the bellman who hold our luggage until check in and after check out until we head to the airport. The check in experience is usually quick and easy but this time I did not receive a message when our room was ready for check in. We went to the desk at check in time and received a suitable room. The few problems we had were not major but noticeable such as some of the window shades were not working completely so would hang down partially when opened fully and there were no paper towels or dish towels in the kitchen. We had already purchased slushie drinks on the Strip before check in and wanted to rinse our glasses so called down to housekeeping asking for towels and they brought us a stack of napkins. On our first night we used a couple of the glasses in the room and placed them in the sink and they were left there when housekeeping came through but no bid deal. We had plenty of toiletries and towels each day and the room was clean and bed made.
We always get an Escape cabana and this time was no different. We love the cabanas and the pool area and received great service from the cabana staff. All of the staff in the hotel with the exception of one woman at the check in counter were great, super friendly and helpful. I don't know her name but feel like she does not have the temperament for customer service, she seemed to get very irritated when any issues arose but mostly everyone was great. I know this hotel accepts pets and I'm not sure if that only applies to certain suites but I have never smelled any dog smell in any of the suites we have stayed in but I've definitely seen dogs out and about around the hotel and grounds. The lack of restaurants might be a problem for some people but we like to eat at all kinds of different places so there only being one cafe and one bar is not an issue for us. Overall, this is our favorite hotel on the Strip.
The Vdara gave us a peaceful place to relax. The location was near perfect. Staff had their A game on. Between the Bellagio casino and the Aria kept us near the gaming action but kept the rowdy folks away. Would love to stay here again.
This is a nice hotel and the service was excellent. I arrived at 8:30 in the morning and they already had a room for me. The rooms are nice although small but the room had a fridge,microwave and a stove if you want to cook something. The only drawback is the location as it sits way back, I like walking so it wasn't a problem but if you don't like walking this isn't the hotel for you. If you head toward the strip go through the Aria if you're headed South and go through the Bellagio if you're headed north towards Caesars Palace. You can take the tram but I walk fast and would always beat it.you can also take a taxi or Uber but that to me is a waste of money if you're heading to the strip. The Aria is across the way so just head out the front door and turn left and follow the path, if you head to the Bellagio when you come off the elevator take left and another left at Starbucks and keep going straight. I will stay at the Vdara again in the future.
The hotel was perfect for a family vacation. The non-smoking policy was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our suite had a washer and dryer which was great. The pool was beautiful and the hotel is a short walk to The Bellagio and Aria. Would definitely return.
We came here as we didn't want the busy casino hotel or one with a club in it and it was such a nice escape from all the people and noise. This hotel is non smoking which was a massive plus for us, no smoking in the lobby or rooms. Unlike the other big hotels which smell like stale smoke and drink.
We had a room that had a fountain view, I would 100% recommend it it was so amazing. The room was big and spacious, lovely inside and such a comfy bed. The hotel smells of the spa throughout and its so nice. It has easy access to the balagio which is super convenient.
I was however very disappointed as it was my birthday,my husband told them and they didn't do anything nice at all in the room nothing!! A hotel that size you'd think they would?!
The gym is a great gym lots of equipment and selection. The free weights section however is small and can get really busy!
The pool area is nice and clean and lots of sun loungers, not a party pool (which we were chuffed about) there is waitresses serving as well.
Would 200% recommend but just left a bit disappointed.
