We had a wonderful time staying at the Vdara. It was lovely staying at a hotel without a casino, as it provided a quiet, peaceful escape from the rest of the strip. It was a fantastic location, very central many shows, shops and restaurants on the strip. Our room was spacious, airy and luxurious, and we enjoyed our fountain view every time we entered the room. This hotel was perfect for our needs.
"Will be Great!"
Sadly I stayed here while it was undergoing renovations. I had wanted a boutique experience. When Traveling on business in Vegas its a big bonus to have accomadtions that are absent of smoke, flashing light, casino. I chose Vdara for that reason. The travel group did not advise me of the rents being undertaken in the pool area so we were required to travel to ARIA to use their pool. It was inconvenient!. The Vdara will be a great option when fully serviceable. Very much enjoyed the low key ambiance.
Absolutely stunnig Hotel not as busy as the others due to the fact there is no Casino in the hotel so perfect for us. The Suites are in good size, very clean with a perfect view over the strip. The Hotel is very central and in walking distance to strip, restaurants and night life. The pool was closed but we were offered to use the one of the Aria Hotel which was perfect.
I had reservations about staying at Vdara as it is almost "off strip" and doesn't have a casino. But, in the end, I came to the conclusion it offered best of both worlds. It's a 2 minute walk into the back of the Bellagio and a 2 minute walk into the Aria, so the concerns about being off strip was alleviated. The hotel though doesn't have all the negatives of the big resorts (crowded, smoky) but does lose out in the shortage of restaurants, bars and associated shops. That though was a positive for us - the Vdara was a quiet oasis in the midst of the strip madness. Oh, the rooms are typical 5 Sumatra hotel rooms - well appointed, well maintained, decently sized and very comfortable.
I recently stayed here while attending a convention at the Bellagio. I was first hesitant to stay at a non-casino hotel as I had always stayed at the larger resorts. However I was very impressed by the Vdara. The location is excellent. It is actually closer to walk to the Bellagio Convention Centre than if you were staying in the Bellagio itself. The team to Aria and Monte Carlo is right there as well. It is a bit of a walk if you want to go to the strip as you basically have to go through Aria or Bellagio. The rooms are all suites and very nice. They have a nice sized kitchen with sink, fridge and small hot plate (but no cooking equipment or dishes!) A nice sitting area and great, large bathroom with soaker tub and separate oversized shower. The lobby area is small but check in very efficient. Getting taxi's or ride share was very easy. There is a Starbucks, one lounge and a small restaurant on site and that is about it. However there are many eating options in Nearby Crystals, The Bellagio or Aria. Really, a great hotel and location and usually a savings aver nearby high-end casino resorts.
