We stayed at the Vdara in Mid March following a cruise out of LA. We had chosen this new hotel because of the great rate we found on BA website. We had some concern as the hotel was not open when we booked but the no smoking rule really attracted us.
We arrived mid Saturday afternoon, the checkin went reaaly quick, no queues, and we were upgraded nto a better room overlooking the Bellagio fountains. We just asked for a room with the view not realising there was an upgrade involved and we were told the hotel was full so this was a real benefit.
The room was on the 28th floor yet we never had to wait more than 30 seconds for a lift. Inside we had a lovely kitchen are with cooker, microwave, sink, coffee maker and table and chairs. There was a very nice seating area with sofa, table and wall mounted LCD TV. The bedroom are had a very comfotrable bed and anothe huge TV on the wall. The bathroom was large, very clean and had everything we needed. A large bath, seperate shower, double vanity and loo. Plenty of fluffy towels and nice toiletries. A hair dryer in the bathroom, safe in the wardrobe with iron and board. The overall decor was very contemporary, which we liked, very comfortable and no fake themes.
Some MINOR little things could have been better. No cutlery in the room , had to ask and then when they were removed were not replaced had to ask again. Light switches not next to the bed and curtain controls on the wall in the kitchen area could have been better designed.
The pool area was great well located and with all the touches needed. Sunbeds, towels, bar service and able to order food.
For us the best things about the Vdara are
No smoking, oh how wonderful and brave of the management as this will undoubtedly upset some people. should be extended to include area immediatley outside so we healthy customers don't have to walk through the smells.
Lovely aroma in the public areas. Don't know what it was but made everything so fresh.
No gambling. Oh we like a flutter but not having to walk through a casino to find the reception was really good.
Link to Bellagio
On the down side the location, back from the Strip was different but soon overcome, and really wasn't a problem. The City Center complex has everything needed and the closeness of Aria, Bellagio and Crystals allowed us to have a wonderful visit.
Yes we will return to Vdara so should you.
