"View of the Bellagio fountains."
We chose this hotel because it's a non casino resort, so no smells of smoking, much quieter than the casino ones, a much more relaxed attitude. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, especially valet parking and front desk. We had a wrap around King suite with strip views, looking straight down onto the Bellagio fountains and strip, be sure you ask for a strip view when booking, or you might end up with just a road view. The hotel still feels very new, all the public and private rooms are very clean and with good fixtures and fittings, our suite was excellent, with a kitchen, you need to ask house keeping for plates etc. Beds were comfortable, showers great, we even had a bath included, there really isn't anything we found to complain about. The hotel has a direct link to the Bellagio and that's the fastest way to the strip, and most of the shows. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a bit of luxury, without any fuss.
"Best place to relax, no smoking, no casino..."
if you want to relax, it's the right place, bedrooms are great, suites have great views (if you ask for it) you can bring some food in your room, there is a kitchen with most of what you need, except for plates and forks & knifes. you can get that at Walgreen. great place.
We stayed for 5 nights (3rd to 8th October) for our daughters wedding. We upgraded to a corner suite , so glad we did , the views from our room (23024) were breathtaking. Hotel is in a great location. Being a non smoking hotel + no casino is also a plus. We did use the pool area but it does get busy in the afternoons. To sum up - I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning.
We couldn’t have been happier than we were with the accommodations at the Vdara. It is a lovely non-gambling hotel that is still near to the heart of the Strip and some of the big name hotels (e.g, Bellagio, Ceasar’s Palace). We had a corner suite that was very reasonably priced (we did book way in advance). The room was spacious and well laid out. Beds were comfortable too! We didn’t really make use of the kitchen for cooking, just the refrigerator and microwave. Also, WiFi worked well enough to accommodate my video streaming needs.
"Good Alternative to The Strip Casino Hotels"
The nice things I can say with Vdara is that it wasn't a "casino hotel" like the majority of the ones along The Strip. No smell of smoke as you enter the lobby! We got the room with a view of the Bellagio fountains, albeit it was a view between the Bellagio hotel and the Cosmopolitan - it still made a very nice view every night! Our room had a kitchen which you can use, just ask for the pans or plates if you need them. We didn't get to really use the kitchen, but we're very happy with the place as it really was a full black-out as far as the curtains as concerned. You get a living area in front of your bed, bed side amenities and tables with enough space for all your gadgets. Instead of a hotel manual, you do get an interactive tablet which you can use in-suite. We asked for toiletries and slippers as these apparently are no longer provided automatically, they're still free but you do need to ask for them. Mattress was a little "uneven" but that maybe because of some folks being "heftier" than others as to why. Very accessible with a monorail shuttle to Aria and Monte Carlo, aside from having a direct access bridge to the Bellagio.
