I got a great rate from Jet Luxury from Travelzoo for the Vdara and booked a night on the Thanksgiving weekend. I've been to Vdara before and had a great time. The Vdara is at the City Center, which is really the heart of the Vegas strip. Surrounding hotels include The Cosmopolitian, Aria, Mandarin Oriental and the covered walk way will lead to Bellegio. The tram takes you to Aria, Crystals, Monte Carlo.
The Vdara is non-gaming, non-smoking hotel and is modern, stylish and upscale with great location that is tucked away from the madding crowds and is an oasis in the midst of the Vegas action. The hotel is dog friendly.
I felt like the Vdara has really made a significant improvement in their customer service. Dominique and John at the front desk were super friendly and helpful. The valet parking is free and attentive. I was introduced to M Life membership, which gives you access to discounts and deals. They recommend that you book directly thru the hotel and hopefully, they can match or meet other rates.
My room 16034 was a suite with strip view ( Eiffel Tower). The last stay was a corner suite with a kitchenette, which I highly recommend. The room was divided into the bedroom room area with flat panel TV and on the other side was another flat panel TV (lots of channels) for the living area, which had comfortable lounge seating, with the kitchen at the entrance.
The bedroom area had a comfy king bed with great linens, automatic shade controls, handy outlets at the bed for charging and spacious closet with the light coming on when you open the door. The bathroom was beautiful with shower (with seat), cool oval separate tub, tons of counter space with storage drawers. The robes are upon request and really terrific. The only minor negative was, the towels were scratchy. The kitchen area has mini bar refrigerator, stocked with 2 bottles of water, 2 burner stove, table with 2 chairs, microwave, sink, coffee maker (Keurig) and kitchenware on request.
The resort fee of $25. day covers the free newspaper, wifi, pool, Fitness Center. The pool is on the 3rd floor and it was a tad too chilly to be out, although it was sunny. The dining options included the Market Cafe in the lobby for casual food for take away or seating available. They have prepared breakfast with coffee, juice, pastries, lunch and dinner options, panni, sandwich, salads, burgers, pasta, crepes, etc from 6 am - midnite. The Market Cafe also is a boutique grocery store with meats, cheeses and wines, snacks and drinks. Vegas abounds with great places to dine, including the nearby Bellegio and Aria.
Bar Vdara at the lobby is small, but seems like a friendly, convenient spot for a drink. The Spa has the usual menu of treatments and you can purchase a day pass for use of the facilities. My flight was late and they gave me a late check out of 6 pm, so I could hang out in the room and relax, this was fantastic...given that most hotel charge extra for time after the check out time. Really enjoyed my stay here and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel special. I highly recommend the Corner Suite which has the WoW factor. Looking forward to my return to Vdara.
