We chose to stay for a 3 night stay at the Vdara because we were traveling with kids and knew it was a hotel without a casino. Excellent choice! We arrived at 6:45 am and were able to upgrade to a corner suite with kitchenette and washer/dryer for $50 more/night....AND they let us check in by 7:30 am. VERY IMPRESSED.
PROS: -Quiet, clean without smell of cigarette smoke so prevalent in other hotels.
-Couch pulled out to an uncomfortable mattress, but we were able to call housekeeping to
get a mattress top. Nice touch :)
-Happy Hour in the bar area had some of the most reasonable drink prices in Vegas from
11:00-4:00pm (Mon-Frid)/ Had vodka tonics for $5 that were excellent. The food was
delicious as well.
-Located near free TRAM that would get you to Bellagio, Monte Carlo and Crystals FAST.
-Staff were all attentive, polite and professional.
CONS: -THE POOL...it is very small and was so crowded it was difficult to enjoy. Of course, there
will always be the drunk, obnoxious people ruining your experience in Vegas, but we sat
in lounge chairs for 45 minutes w/out waitress ever stopping by to take our order. She
seemed only interested in serving the people in the $300/day cabanas. The
Vdara needs to build about 2 more pools to accommodate their guests.
-Housekeeping showed up at 4:00pm on a Saturday to clean our suite. This was after my
husband called to ask manager about delay and was told "we are very busy today". Um..
ALL the hotels in Vegas are busy on a Saturday in August. But he did comp us the resort
fee for the day as an apology.
-There is no real restaurant in the Vdara. There is a Market place for breakfast and the bar
for drinks/light eating. And there is a Starbucks for morning coffee...but no sit down dinner
option. But you are within walking distance to delicious options in Bellagio and Crystals.
Overall we were happy with this choice of hotel. It is a great option with kids as the suite was very quiet, spacious and safe.
