Great hotel with great views. I had the strip view (some others mentioned mountain/pool view) around 30th floor (mid range). Very clean rooms, modern bathroom with soaking tub and shower. The bathroom needs better ventilation. Very modern, large suite style room with small kitchen with microwave, electric burners, a mini refrigerator (which barely cools).
Odd thing if you need to warm/cook you need to ask the hotel to provide you cooking pans/utensils.
Pool is fine . Gym is modern, pleasant, good quality new equipment but small for a hotel with such size. Oh by the way, need to pay $1 for an apple/banana at the exit of the Gym where many hotels offer complementary fruit.
The most bothersome is Vdara follows the stylistic(!) tradition of other Strip hotels that started few years ago an annoying and cheap way to add $28/day "resort fee" which mentions for Wifi and Phone usage, Gym all of which is free in even in basic hotels. Vdara, separate yourself from crowd and avoid such cheap "scams"
The hotel is smoke free and as a bonus has no casino (it is great for some but others may miss the overwhelming smoke filled casino ambiance). It is very central: just walk to Aria if you wish to go casino of night club Haze. Or walk to Bellagio, or take downstairs and walk to Cosmopolitan.
Vale parking is great if you don't mind waiting in crowded times. Although my max wait time was around 10 minutes. All other times under 5 minutes. Great service, courteous staff.
Has two TVs if you are into TV. Central island has all multimedia, power connections. Wifi was speed was OK but mostly reliable connection. Central power switch controls every light. Also one may need to read instruction manual to operate certain things. Safe box in the room is great. Blinds and Shades are power controlled and you need to pay attention to locate multiple overwriting power switches to turn on lamps. I could not turn on/off lights on the bed side without leaving the bed and walking to the power switch area and hunt for the right ones.
Very comfortable bed and pillows.
Highly recommend the hotel for families, business travel, couples. Great views, very clean, attentive and courteous hotel staff. Great contrast to other hotels in the strip. I certainly will stay here next time.
