Vdara Hotel & Spa - Las Vegas
When it came to choosing a hotel to stay in for a week in Vegas we knew we had to stay in the Vdara Hotel and Spa, we had spoken to a few people who had stayed there and they had recommended it because its off the busy Las Vegas strip yet easy to get to. The Vdara hotel doesn't have a casino which I liked as it meant it was less busy, wasn't full of us tourists and was more relaxing with it being a spa.
To get to the strip you can simply walk through the Vdara to get to the world famous Bellagio hotel then onto the strip or walk a short distance to the opposite Aria hotel and walk through to the Monte Carlo and onto the strip that way, there's also free trams to get on and plenty of escalators to get around attached to each hotel so it doesn't take long to get onto the main attraction which is the strip.
The Vdara hotel has a 5* rating, we booked the City Center Corner Suite which was amazing, my photos do not do the room justice unfortunately. The room came with everything, a washing machine, dryer, a huge fridge/freezer, 2 large TV screens, iron with board, hair dryer, microwave, hob, a safe and two phones. What we loved most was the huge bath and separate shower, you also got two robes and slippers which were so soft and two separate sinks so we didn't have to fight over the bathroom which is always a bonus.
The bed must have been a king size because it was much larger then my double bed at home, there was four open rooms within the suite which you could walk around in a circle and get to each one, you could also shut the rooms off by closing the room separators. There was a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and lounge, all the rooms except from the kitchen had big windows which at night time you could close using the remote on the wall. We were on the 18th floor in room 18023, overall the hotel was very modern and finished to a high standard, we really enjoyed our stay here, everyone was very friendly and housekeeping came everyday to give us new fluffy clean towels.
I don't want to say which celebrities I saw stay here as it may be there secret hideaway from the busy strip but I would definitely recommend staying here if you ever go to Vegas, the themed hotels on the strip were also amazing but if you want a place to relax at the end of a crazy day having fun on the strip then the Vdara hotel is perfect, our room was so peaceful it felt like once we shut the door we were hiding away in our own apartment as it was so big and homely with everything we needed and more.
