Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world, is best known for its main street, the strip. The Las Vegas Strip is lined with many world renowned hotels, from the Bellagio to the Venetian. Last weekend, when my family and I visited Vegas we stayed at the city’s Vdara, a non-smoking and non-gaming (casino free) hotel on the strip. In this post, I’ll be reviewing the condo-hotel and spa, including information about its location, restaurants, rooms, and amenities.
Starting off with some background info on the Vdara… It is a 150,000 square metre (1.6 million sq ft), 57 floor large hotel with almost 1500 suites. The hotel itself is 176 metres (578 ft) tall, and again, it is non-smoking and doesn’t have a casino. Wifi within the Vdara is free for both guests and visitors.
The Vdara hotel is located within Vegas’ CityCenter, an urban complex by MGM Resorts International. The CityCenter is complete with some of the strip’s best hotels, restaurants and shops. The Vdara is also next to the Bellagio, which it is conveniently connected to through a passageway, as well as next to the Cosmopolitan.
There are many different transportation services at the Vdara including Uber, Taxi, Limousine, Bus, and Airport Shuttle services. The hotel is a valet-only property, and self parking is available at the Aria, next door. The Aria Express tram, a tram operating from 8AM to 4AM daily, is located on an elevated track throughout the CityCenter. This tram connects the Bellagio (with access to the Vdara), the Aria (with access to the Crystals), and the Monte Carlo.
One of the Vdara’s main pulls is the hotel’s spa, which was recently named one of Nevada’s best spas. The near 1700 square metre (18,000 sq ft) two level- spa, salon, and fitness centre is located on the hotel’s second and third levels. The spa and gym are open from 6AM to 8PM, and the salon is open from 9AM to 7PM.
The Vdara also has a rooftop pool and lounge, which is free to visit for guests. It is on the hotel’s third floor, and it is open from 9AM to 4PM.
Vice Versa, the main restaurant at the Vdara, serves brunch, drinks, and a few meals. The restaurant is located on the hotel’s lobby, and it has a very nice atmosphere. My family and I stopped at the Vice Versa for brunch one of the days we were staying at the Vdara, and we all got “the basic”.
Other places serving food at the Vdara include the hotel’s Market Café Vdara, which offers a few meals and a large selection of snacks and drinks, as well as a Starbucks, both located on the lobby floor.
As for rooms at the Vdara, the Vdara offers the One Bedroom Penthouse, which is 82 sq m (885 sq ft) large, and has a living, kitchen and dining area; the City Corner Suite, which is 75 sq m (811 sq ft), and has one king bed; and the Executive Corner Suite, which is 75 sq m (811 sq ft), and has one king bed and a corner view. Smaller rooms include the Studio Fountain View Suite, which is 54 sq m (582 sq ft), and has one king bed; the Studio Parlor Suite, which is 54 sq m (582 sq ft), and has one king bed, a kitchenette, and a tablet; and finally, the Studio Suite, which is 54 sq m (582 sq ft), and has one king bed, a kitchenette, and a tablet. For information on the prices of each of the rooms, check out the Vdara’s website.
Overall, I would rate Las Vegas’ Vdara hotel a 10/10. My stay there was really nice, and there weren’t any problems at all throughout the entire stay. It was also really nice to stay in a casino free hotel, since most of the hotels in Vegas have casinos. I’d definitely suggest looking into staying at the Vdara if you’re visiting Vegas anytime soon!
That’s it for my post! I hope you enjoyed. I will have a ton more posts about my trip to Vegas coming up in the following weeks, so look out for those. Have you ever been to Las Vegas? If so, where have you stayed? If not, where would you like to stay? Let me know in the comments below.
