Flew into Vegas on September 14, 2011 and stayed until September 16, 2011 at the Vdara hotel. Right away from the lobby to the room, to the amentities did this hotel blow me away. As many people complain on this review page about the outstanding wait to check-in, I can honestly say I had no problem. We wait about 15 mintes, and there were 4 staff members doing their absolute best to speed up the line. We arrived before 3pm which is when this hotel checks in, however they were able to offer us a room with a city center view which was perfect. The room itself was a nice sized suite with a kitchenette, king bed, pull out queen sofa bed, and lovely washroom.
We didn't really eat at the hotel other than grabbing a quick snack from their market cafe which was a little pricey but hey, you're in Vegas thats just how things operate. The pool was great...nice and quiet - no pool parties here!
As far as the distance from the strip, it was a bit far because we had to make our way to the Bellagio and then walk through there so it added about 15 minutes to the already far walk around the strip. For the price of the hotel though, and considering it was a 5 star hotel, they did everything in their power to make my stay a desirable one.
Also, the wi-fi was working at all points of my stay in the hotel. They were very good about making sure all the amendities we paid for in the resort fee were taken care of.
Definitely worth the stay!
