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
Upon leaving this hotel we noticed that items had gone missing from the room, our show tickets to see Matt Franco, sunglasses & a Dyson hairdryer. This is not acceptable and People should be warned about this in advance so they can choose wether to stay here or not. Never experienced this much theft from a high class hotel ever , is suggest staying elsewhere as I have since seen that this is quite common in the Vdara. Will never stay here again due to this alone. Such a shame as the hotel rooms are amazing but if you can’t trust housekeeping that changes everything. Vdara management have to come down hard on this or you will continue to get bad reviews & doing nothing about your customers going home without everything they arrived with is disgusting. Shame on housekeeping at the Vdara.
This was our first time staying at Vdara. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and our room had great views. We were happy to discover a walkway leading to Bellagio where we typically stay and Aria is close as well. We were disappointed with the check-in process. We were able to check-in online prior to arrival but when we arrived our room was not ready. We were told rooms are not assigned until you physically arrive at which point we asked the purpose of the online check-in. After waiting 2 1/2 hours for the room we booked - a fountain view penthouse room - we were tired of waiting and took a corner view penthouse suite room. We were happy with the room - we still had great views and it was a very nice room and we were given a refund for the difference. The only other thing we noticed was there was not anyone out front helping with taxi service and newspapers are supposed to be located on an ipad in the room but was not available. My husband had to walk to Bellagio to get newspapers.
This should be a zero stars. Great hotel but I've never ever had customer service like this in my entire life. I've stayed here for a month and a half and have had nothing but problems with the front desk. They checked me out without my authority mid reservation to charge my card. So in the process of me getting my room comped at the end of my stay, the front desk contacted me and said that we will either have to charge you a late fee or check you out. So I asked to be charged the late fee. They then proceeded to check me out, charge my card and charge me a late fee. Immediately... It said late check out at 6pm. However somehow I've been checked out before 4pm without my authorization. I understand they need the room, but for a place that my bill is over $7000 for my entire stay, it seems that treatment like this is a little unnecessary. Just like the $10.25 snickers, $12 mini can of pringles and the $18.75 Fiji water
This was my third visit to the Vdara. I have always enjoyed staying at this hotel, however the experience with check-in was disappointing. I need to clarify first however that the staff was very pleasant but not accommodating. I specifically booked a package that came through my email that stated I would receive a free upgrade to a Fountainview room. This was not honored at check-in. When I showed the staff member a screenshot of the package that I had, he was very apologetic but said that was based on availability. I searched my email and there was no mention that this package was based on availability. This was also mentioned to another staff member when I went down the next morning to state my disappointment. Again, very nice staff member— very pleasant, however not accommodating. Additionally, the room was definitely a little more worn than my last visit along with missing basic necessities including dishes, cutlery and a coffee maker. When inquiring the next morning about the missing items, I was politely told those things were available on request however the coffee maker was $20 a day. This was certainly a change from my last stay with them.
Stay here if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of a casino hotel. Clean, beautiful and friendly environment.
Aria is a step away if you need your What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas experience.
