I stayed at the Vdara April 25-27 2014. I go to Vegas with my friends for a Guys Weekend out in Vegas every year. This was our fourth year and this time I made the reservations at the Vdara wishing to experience a different hotel than last year’s trip. I have stayed at the Monte Carlo (once), the Palms Place (once), the Palazzo (Twice) and this time the Vdara. I decided on the Vdara because of the 811 square feet room. We always have one room as the Pre-Flight room before we head out for the night. This time I reserved a City Corner Suite and the Vdara Suite. Both Suites were great and service was spectacular. I decided to write a review after reading other reviews and people just complaining about the service or the lack of casino or the small pool when they should be the ones to blame for not doing any research on the location. Who books hotels without looking at the rooms or comparing hotels? Yes the pool is small, there is no Casino, the hotel is non-smoking, and yes you have to walk a little bit to get to the strip. I did my research and I knew of all that. I also knew that I had to ask for linen for the pullout couch, that I had to ask for plates and coffee cups and I knew that the shower was not that powerful and that the pullout couch was not that comfortable but I still booked three nights for myself and two nights for my friends.
I landed at 12:00pm (Friday) and got pick up by my friends, we went straight to the hotel and I was able to check in without having to pay anything extra in order to get into the rooms. (Yes, there are hotels in Vegas that if your room is ready you have to pay extra if you want to check in before check in time, usually 3:00pm, Palms Place is an example of that). As soon as we got into the City Corner Suite we called room service to ask for the linen and plates and coffee cups for the room. We made ourselves some drinks and started planning the afternoon/evening, room service showed up and we asked him to provide the same things for the other suite and within 10 minutes he showed up at the other room with our request.
The City Corner Suite was great, full size refrigerator (18 cubic feet) with two coffees for our Keurig Coffee maker, and our daily two bottles of water which were replenish every day. Also the rooms were clean every day and towels exchanged every day (unlike some of the other reviewers’ experienced). The black-out blinds are great for sleeping in. The room comes with two robes/sandals, ironing board, washer and dryers (which we used since some of us were there to run the Tough Mudder on Saturday morning) and a safe and 270 degrees of view. We had windows on the left side, windows on the back and windows on the right side, the only side that did not had windows was the entry way. I was pleased to see that management has seemed to fix some of the complaints that I read in Tripadvisor and Yelp (like no room service and unfriendly staff). I did not experience anything like that and the check in at the front desk was excellent and so was check out (maybe because I checked in around 12:30 pm and checked out on Monday at around 9:00am)
