We stayed at Vdara during the Christmas holiday 2012 for 4 nights. We like the location and how easy to get into our rooms without going through the chaos of a casino. The rooms have a kitchen and the living/sitting area is spacious. The housekeepers were great at cleaning up our room and folding our clothes.
One thing that was not quite right through out our stay was the AC. The air conditioner was simply not working so when we were there it was so hot and dry. We couldn't not adjust the temperature at all.
And also they only have valet parking for the hotel so everytime when we needed our car, we would have to wait for a while.
Overall it's a very good hotel and I definitely will recommend it!
