On a recent family outing to the Grand Canyon, I secured a 24' recreational vehicle for the drive. The plan was to hit Las Vegas on the first night, and then head south for the rest of the trip. Hearing good things about the Vdara Hotel & Spa (no casino and all-suites property), we booked a room.
Upon our arrival, we learned that there is no parking on-site for "oversized" vehicles. All large vehicles, meaning those that don't fit into the parking structure, will be escorted to the parking lot behind the Monte Carlo hotel (it is several blocks away). This seemingly minor "inconvenience" ended up completely overshadowing our stay as it took us an additional 45 minutes to check-in, and an additional 55 minutes to check-out as we shuttled/walked between the two properties. It was very frustrating.
The whole RV issue aside, I'd book the Vdara again (but arrive in a sedan!). The room was of a good size, very well appointed, clean and there were plenty of amenities and comforts. Our view overlooking the Bellagio fountains was excellent. I especially liked the express elevators for the higher floors.
