Last week I stayed at the Vdara with my mom for 3 nights. Our trip was to see Tom Jones and The Phantom of the Opera. We love Vegas and travel here once a year. Compared with The Mirage, Palazzo, and Caesars, Vdara was by far the best. It was as if we were staying at a luxurious hotel in Mexico or Caribbean but in the middle of Vegas!
When you walk in you smell this amazing aroma. Then there is a bar, and lobby, everything is quiet, you do not have 1,000 people bumping into you, no line, nice people at the check in counter.
Our room was on the 41st floor, overlooking the pool and mountains. I have had better views at other hotels but the room is what made everything just great. We had a Vdara Suite, 811 sqft, full kitchen and fridge, living room, bedroom, and large bath. The Bed was very comfortable, great pillows and blankets. The air conditioning worked very well. If you need plates or anything they will bring them right up for you, just call the day you get there and you won't need to worry about it.
Pool was amazing! If you like to tan, you will enjoy it here. It is located on the 3rd floor, so you don't need to walk through a casino like all of the other hotels to get to it. There is no one there, plenty of lounge chairs, you can have as many towels as you would like, and they have water and cups out at all times. They also pass around amazing margaritas and pink lemonades for free, very refreshing. It gets very hot though, say it is 105 in Vegas, it is 130 in between the glass hotels in the City Center! I loved it!
The Vdara is connected from a sky walk to the Bellagio, literally a 1 minute walk. It also is a 1 minute or less walk to the Aria, you just walk on a pathway outside. Aria is a very nice hotel also! It does not take long to get to the strip. You can walk through either hotel (Bellagio or Aria). Vdara is set back exactly in line with Bellagio, so the distance from the Bellagio to the strip is the same as the Vdara to the Strip. Believe me it is no big deal!
If you go to Vegas and want to see Phantom of the Opera, I suggest getting the cheapest seats possible because it wasn't worth the 175 per person for 2nd row that we spent. The show bored me, people literally were falling asleep around us. The week before we went we saw Wicked, and that blew Phantom away! Next time I am there I will spend my money on a Cirque show , maybe 'O'.
I will be returning to Vdara, it is my favorite hotel is Vegas!
