When Phil and I last came to Vegas in December 2009, City Center was just opening. The hotels looked gorgeous and the elite stores in Crystals were something to see. So, I was excited when I learned I'd be staying at Vdara during this trip.

The hotel is beautiful and LEED certified for sustainability. There's no casino, which was refreshing. (Aria next door has one.) As soon as you open the doors to the lobby, the most wonderful, clean scent greets you. I don't know what it was, but I always found myself smiling as soon as I smelled it.

The suites rock! They're huge: kitchenette, sitting area with couches and chairs and a flatscreen, bed and another flatscreen and a bathroom with a tub and shower. And, Aveda products!

I was able to watch the Bellagio's fountain show from my room and I had a nice view of the Strip.

Vdara connects to the Bellagio via a walkway, and there's a tram within City Center that connects the other hotels and Crystals. Cosmopolitan is right next door and within walking distance, although I will admit that we took a cab back from Marquee ;).

Loved Vdara, and I'd stay there again. Also would love to stay at Cosmopolitan too!


  1. We stayed at Vdara several months ago. LOVED the soaking tub.

  2. Never got to try it, but it looked lovely.

  3. My husband and i ended up being now delighted when John
    managed to finish off his investigations using the precious recommendations he discovered from your web page.
    It is now and again perplexing to simply possibly be handing out guidance which usually many others might have been
    making money from. And we also remember we've got the website owner to be grateful to for this. The type of illustrations you made, the straightforward website menu, the friendships you can help promote - it is all wonderful, and it's really facilitating our son in addition to us recognize that
    that concept is satisfying, and that is extremely vital.
    Many thanks for everything!
