Quiet, clean, and relaxing - an oasis on the StripPosted Jun 1, 2015
Pros: Clean, calm, quiet, helpful staff
Location: Everything on 'the Strip' is just steps away. Free trams help, too. Confusingly, couldn't find an easy route to Cosmopolitan next door. Bit of a maze.
Stayed three nights for a kid-free getaway. Great view of the Bellagio fountains. No casino means no smoking, less noise, and a generally calmer atmosphere. For example: the Vdara lobby never felt crowded or chaotic; whereas walking through the neighboring Bellagio lobby felt insanely crowded and busy, wall-to-wall people. We paid for VIP check-in, which provided a nice, high-class touch to our check in process. A concierge met us Overall, Vdara was the perfect Vegas hotel for us: tired parents looking to relax, sleep well, enjoy a clean room and top-notch service, while being steps away from the sights & sounds of the bustling Vegas strip.

Great Hotel - Quiet for Vegas w/ Nice Pool & SPAPosted May 31, 2015
Pros: Almost everything...no line at check in, great concierge, Starbucks in the lobby, easy access to Bellagio & Aria.
Cons: Better black out shades...still too much light early in the morning
Location: Connected to the Bellagio & Aria with great restaurants and gambling. Across the Strip is Paris Casino
We enjoyed this hotel for a weekend getaway to Vegas. My wife has avoided coming back to Vegas for several years, but this place changed her thinking. There is NO Casino...no slots, they mean nothing. But it's a 3 minute walk to either the Aria or the Bellagio - directly connected to this hotel for gambling and great dining. You can also walk to Crystals through Aria...another great find...then Bobby's Burger Bar just outside on the strip. All w/in 5 min and all but 1 min are inside and air conditioned. This is pretty dead center on the strip and they of course have an abundance of cabs. The concierge got us great seats for a show, good reservations for dinner, and were really helpful and nice. The rooms have blackout shades, but still too much light for my liking. We booked a cabana at the pool and had some privacy and great service there as well. This felt like a staycation, it was relaxing and laid back in the hotel and we just planned to eat and gamble elsewhere. They have a Starbucks and a take away restaurant which is also where room service comes from...but no formal sit down restaurant. I strongly recommend if you don't like all the smoke and casino noise in your hotel...this is owned by MGM so you can gamble at any of the partner properties and still get your benefits but have a nice getaway to unwind, go to the SPA or lay by the POOL! We checked the SPA and unfortunately didn't have time to book due to our schedule but will when we're back in a few months!

Sleek and delightfully nonsmokingPosted May 31, 2015
Cons: Nothing to improve
Location: Close to everything including the tram
Vdara is all suites, a separate kitchen and pull out sofa bed. Really appreciate the nonsmoking rooms. Great hub area within a two minute walk to Aria or a ten minute walk to Bellagio. Very nice service.

Great Stay!Posted May 31, 2015
Automatic shades. THAT. IS. ALL. In all seriousness, everything from the fig scent to the amazing service, this hotel is great. The only thing I don't like is the hold they place on your card; it's especially annoying if you're using a debit card. Overall, the stay was nice, and I'd definitely recommend it to a friend.

vdaraPosted May 29, 2015
Location: great location.
You won't find a nicer room for the price in vegas. I've stayed at every 5 star hotel and the only thing missing from the vdara is the casino atmosphere. However, the room are as good as it gets. Experience was exceptional. The staff was great!

Average qualityPosted May 29, 2015
Pros: Relatively new.
Cons: Staff service, check in speed
Location: The Strip
Went during memorial day weekend so everything was quite crazy. Long check in time and rooms took too long to be ready. I guess it is because of the holiday but we arrived in late afternoon already and it took 3 hours to get to the room. Also I booked 2 rooms and I expected to have them next to each other. I booked them in advance like 2 months ahead. i don't know if Expedia or the hotel should be responsible for that to secure 2 rooms next to each other but it was bad that this issue was not addressed even booked in advance.

Expectations not met.Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: Location was great.
Cons: Read above.
I felt good booking the hotel after researching different Vegas hotels online. Arriving was very nice, check-in was quick, staff was helpful. The condition of the hotel was great and the room was clean. My issue is the advertisement of a full kitchen which was my main reason for booking this hotel. The "full kitchen" came complete with no dishes, silverware, or coffee pot, and the smallest refrigerator known to man. Attached to the refrigerator was a mini bar that I opened twice, didn't touch anything inside, then saw the price of the refreshments inside and read about the rules of the mini bar. Your room would automatically be charged if you removed any contents from the mini bar. You all know the drill. Yeah, I get it, Las Vegas is about excess, gambling, A.M. drinking, etc…You don't spend a lot of time in your room, we didn't. But, whatever happened to hotel rooms of convenience? With basic necessities like a refrigerator big enough to put your lunch or dinner leftovers in. I think the outrageous resort fee you collect on a nightly basis could inflate your refrigerator some. The resort fee that includes 2-10 oz bottles of water, complimentary internet, a newspaper that you won't read, complimentary boarding pass printing, and a fitness room that can hold about a dozen people comfortably for a hotel that probably houses 2500 people nightly. To sum up, this hotel was basic and over-priced. P.S. There was $25 worth of bogus mini bar charges during checkout.
