Vdara Hotel and Spa
- What's Included
I hate having to walk for ever through a casino to get to my hotel room when Im already tired. This was the perfect solution. Nice, clean rooms with great views and close to everything! All the casinos in the strip are just a short walk away. Best incentive for me was the Starbucks in the lobby. Took the elevator down, got my coffee and went up to get ready for the day.
We booked an "Executive Corner Suite" for 4 nights, but the suite location--combined with the amount of window frontage--resulted in a constant 24-hour drone of exterior noise. With all the noise from the 6-lane freeway (I-15), the streets nearby, and a fair amount of helicopter traffic, getting sleep was only possible with sleeping pills.It's a long walk to the parking garage. We followed another reviewer's advice and parked at the Bellagio, so at least that way we didn't have to traverse a casino floor. Even with the mostly-enclosed walk (there is a covered bridge that is about 50 meters long), it requires a lot of opening of doors and taking elevators and an escalator. Allow 10-15 minutes from your room to your car. Pre-pay for the self-parking at $10/day when you check in at Vdara (you can park at Bellagio to start the process, then your room key becomes your electronic parking in/out pass).As many others have noted, you'll have to request whatever kitchen/laundry items you want, either at the front desk or by calling down to reception. We were pleased that the laundry soap and dryer sheets, dishwasher detergent and dish soap were all complimentary. We did, however, bring our own packets of coffee (Starbucks Via worked quite nicely with microwaved water in mugs provided by the hotel) because the cheapest coffee in the lobby Starbucks costs $3.95+tax. Also, you may be able to avoid having all your kitchen items removed daily if you put them into the dishwasher in your kitchen. That eliminated the need to request them daily. Still, it's all a bit of a pain and seems ridiculous given the cost of the room and the $100 daily incidental charge hold placed by the hotel. Oh, and be sure to check your bill... at checkout, I discovered they wanted to charge us $6.75 for peanut M&Ms from the minibar, though we never removed anything.Finally, as others have mentioned, the clothes washer/dryer is a disaster. It's a stacked Bosch unit, and while the washer is OK... the dryer takes forever and never seems to get clothes completely dry. The controls are not intuitive, and no instructions are provided/posted. So allow for time and frustration if you decide to do laundry in the room.One last caveat: You still have to pay the $39.20/day "resort fee" even if you don't use the pool... or, as during our stay, if it's under renovation. I don't think walking to the pool at the Aria (as we were advised at check-in) is an acceptable alternative.
We stayed in panaroma suite and it has the best view of vegas desert, bellagio fountain and vegas strip. I would definitely recommend it for people who would like to have the best view of vegas from top.
We stayed in two hotels in Las Vegas this trip. After the first hotel, where my wife took a professional test, we relaxed at Vdara in a Deluxe Lake View Suite. The room was large and comfortable; more like a condominium than a hotel room. Check in was very efficient. I am not a fan of the "resort fee" which reminds me of all those airline fees. However, if you want a break from the Vegas chaos and smoke, I recommend Vdara. Employees were helpful too.
The room was absolutely stunning! The views of the Strip and the Bellagio were to die for. It was an unbelievable experience for us and we would definitely go back. The location was perfect as well. The hotel was new and a no smoking building and that was very helpful. We didn't like the smell of smoke so this was the perfect place to be. There were blackout blinds in the room. The windows were huge. It had a mini kitchen area. The bathroom was so beautiful. We couldn't get enough of our room here. We had a sitting area as well that we used for lounging after a hectic day on the strip.
