The Vdara is connected by a 100 metre walk way to The Bellagio and is a relative smoke free haven of peace and tranquility in comparison to the complete mayhem which is the lobby area of The Bellagio. The Vdara check in is fast and efficient and the rooms are by and large excellent. They are all suites and they are quite big, modern, with lovely bathrooms and are very quiet but if you are expecting the kitchenette to be functional as a kitchenette then unfortunately you will be disappointed. You have to ask for cups, cutlery, plates and pans which they quickly bring to you but they do not provide kettles (we did ask) so we had to boil the water using the microwave or grill which was a bit of a faff to be honest. They might as well just forget the kitchenette and give you a kettle and some cups as many hotels routinely do but then again most guests probably order in or eat out so they don’t bother with the cooking facilities and by the look of things you are not encouraged to. We only used the kitchen to make hot drinks and ate out every meal. Eating out in Vegas is very reasonably priced and drinks are not that expensive. In fact in Freemont Street which is where it all started it is very cheap to eat out and the night time street entertainment down there is just brilliant. Freemont Street is about 5 miles from the Bellagio Fountains but you can easily get there by bus or taxi.
The Vdara is right in the middle of The Strip and you can get to it in two ways either through The Bellagio or past The Cosmopolitan. Either way it’s about a 7 minute walk. The Strip itself is something to behold but beware trying to walk along it quickly. The distances are very deceptive. The other hotels look quite close but they are so huge and there is so much going on around you that what you thought would be a ten minute stroll ends up taking an hour. We had a room on the 51st floor and we had a spectacular view of it. The Bellagio fountains are lovely. You can pay the $28 dollar a day resort fee by credit card when you check out. There is no casino at The Vdara which is a blessing as it makes it all so much quieter and much nicer and you can be in either The Bellagio or Aria casinos in 5 minutes.
All in all The Vdara is a great place to stay.
