We arrived at Vdara in the new City Center Las Vegas anticipating a great stay--but a bit concerned because some of the reviews weren't great. Anyone who reviews this hotel badly I honestly just don't get it.
First of all it is new and VERY stylish so my wife LOVED it! The moment we walked in the door the great smell hit us and was so refreshing. The doormen were VERY friendly and whisked our bags away. We arrived around 3:00--their busiest time to check in and we had no problems. It was our anniversary so we asked for an upgrade--and we GOT one--no charge. We were on the 46th floor over-looking the Bellagio fountain and WHAT A VIEW of both the fountain, the strip and the mountains.
We went up to the room and were blown away when we entered as to how beautiful and awesome it was. While we were checking out the bathroom about 30 seconds after our arrival I thought I heard a doorbell ring and sure enough it was Joe with our bags! He gave a great presentation/rundown of our room and the facility and was SO dang friendly--as everyone at this hotel was!
The next morning we had booked a couples massage at the Vdara Spa and we SO recommend that! The spa staff was friendly and got us set up prior to our massages where we could relax beforehand. I took a 30 minute steam sauna then met my wife for a cup of hot tea then we went in for our massage. Being a guy I had never done that before and MAN I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!! Spoil yourself and try it! I was STUPID relaxed afterwards! When the massage was over our massage therapists (mine was named Cassie--very good--just the right pressure) put us in a meditation room that had trickling water and was VERY relaxing. Then I hit the steam sauna again for 30 minutes to finish out the experience. It was awesome and SO worth it.
Our room had a mini kitchen that we did not use but we were offered plates, flatware, etc. if we needed it. We called for turn-down service every evening when we left the hotel to go out and our water was always replenished and the bed turned down. The light swithes were a little funky but it certainly does not take a rocket scientist to figure it out. There is a "do not disturb" and "maid service" light on the door that is very nice.
It is tucked back in-between the rear of the Bellagio and the new Aria resort. The Aria is a quick five-minute walk and it is worth seeing as well. Very nice. Access to the strip was easy either through Aria or Bellago.
All in all we absolutely LOVED this hotel AND the spa and cannot wait to get back there again!
