"Excellent price to Performance at City Center"
Las Vegas is a city of facades, especially when it comes to hotels. Expect virtually no service at any hotel unless you are a high roller getting comped or you stay at a hotel whose luxury brand matters to it (Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental -- not, e.g. Bellagio). That said, Vdara had a really nice facility and is very well maintained. It is at City Center--my preferred location on the strip for lots of reasons--and in a part of it that makes getting to Aria (the heart of City Center) or the Cosmopolitan (super trendy right now and not part of City Center) really easy. The Vdara rooms are big and designed as a suite. No one should stay in Vegas more than 48 hours but if you have to you will appreciate the kitchenette. Mandarin Oriental is still the best hotel at City Center and has great concierges and helpful doormen. But Vdara is better than Aria (unless you smoke) and at a very good price point.
"Love this place!"
This hotel is amazing! No is not on the strip, and almost because of that we didn’t choose it, however is the best choice ever! Super clean! Quiet, accesible, just next door to the Bellagio, and super closed to the tram, the personal is super friendly, I am impressed. Definitely i will come back here.
Stayed here in April 2017 for my 29th birthday. Loved the location and the room. My husband and I arrived a little later than we usually do, but found the Lyft ride from the airport to the hotel nice and quick. We proceeded to check-in which had a hiccup but that hiccup was totally my husbands fault not the hotels. However, if they had Apple Pay Instead of just Samsung Pay enabled, it would have helped oh well. Maybe next time. We were given a room on the 7th floor towards the end which gave us a beautiful view of the fountains and the mountains. Our room had the king bed, with the sitting area and mini kitchen area which we found great as we ended up hungover one night with left over B-Dubs 😂😂, having that microwave helped a lot. The only thing I really didn’t care for was how the bathroom is sort of just in your face while you are laying in the bed. Love how you don’t have to be bothered with walking in a Smokey casino to get to the room. Also it is pet friendly so if you have a problem with people who bring animals on vacation, this may not be the place for you as you are bound to see a pup or two. However, loved the location we didn’t get a chance to pool lounge so I don’t have any input on that. This is now in our top 3 hotels in Vegas. We will def return at some point as we do make Vegas a yearly thing!! Tip: Having the mobile app to start the check-in process early helps avoid the long line you may encounter!!
"Incredible customer service "
We are coming towards the end of our stay in the Vdara and I have so many positive things to say about the Vdara I will not wait to do my review. We are on our honeymoon in the states and while I had initial concerns about Vegas not being a very romantic honeymoon destination, the VDara have made it the highlight of my honeymoon. From the moment we arrived we have been treated so well and really made to feel like special guests. Aside from our special treatment I would still not hesitate to recommend the Vdara for the following reasons - it is a new hotel so unlike some of the other strip hotels it has a clean modern feel - it is non smoking which is means there is no stale smoke smell anywhere (I have often stayed in non smoking rooms in hotels which still had that awful smell because the hotel as a whole was smoking friendly) - it's reasonably priced in every sense, the rooms, the food by the pool and most importantly in a super hot climate they offer free drinking water at the pool (you would be shocked at how much other hotels charge for a bottle of water) - the staff are exceptional, throughout our stay in Vegas we have been continually disappointed with the service on the strip in bars and restaurants and we are always so happy to return to the Vdara everyday as every single member of staff has always been friendly and greeted us with a smile. In short I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Vegas and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend this amazing hotel to anyone. Looking forward to spending our last two nights in Vegas and will be genuinely disappointed to leave.
"$7.00 for a bottle of water'''"
I know, it's Vegas, but to spent hundreds on airfares and rides to get there on top of several hundreds a night, the least they can do is offer some free bottled water. Parking is charge on a daily basis at $20/day. Checking in process is average. Room is exceptional as we stayed in the Suite. Vdara is a hotel that is not directly on The Strip, nor does it have any slot machines or smoking lobby, so it is very nice and quiet. I recommend this place for anybody who likes the quietness at nite but still preferred a walkable distance to the main drag. Food: I do not really comment on food as I believed everybody has their own tastes, but from my experience after ordering a meal after checking in from a long flight, it was more than a disappointment. I should have taken pictures and tweet it to Chef Ramsey for his opinion. It was the last time I ordered any food there. I was more upset about the price than the food look and taste itself, but then again it's probably meant for those drunk who did not want to go out after a heavy drinking. Maybe one meal is excuseable, but two completely different meals ordered, now it's something else. Paid for spa service for spouse, and she love it. The facility is top notch. Overall, hotel is highly recommended as staff is very service oriented and room is very clean and comfortable. Food, on the other hand, go somewhere else. Spouse highly recommmed their spa services as this one is surely on the top five that she loved. Warning: unless you are too drunk or tired to walk, leaves the fridge items alone. There was no price tag and I found out my bag of M&M is $13.00. But hey, it's Vegas.
