Standard amenities include a 32-inch flat-screen TV, a wet bar, a refrigerator and a coffeemaker. Guests can utilize the resort's exercise room and business center or shop in the gift store.Gaming is not offered at the Alexis Park All Suite Resort and smoking is not allowed, both of which add to the tranquil ambiance. There is one lovely dining venue, the casual Alexis Gardens Restaurant, which overlooks the main pool. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here. Room service is also available. You can grab snacks and enjoy cocktails in the Pegasus Bar & Lounge. Live music and comedy acts are often featured in the adjacent showroom.The Alexis Park All Suite Resort is known for being able to host a variety of events -- such as weddings (held at a charming outdoor gazebo), family reunions and business gatherings. It boasts meeting space and a banquet service that can handle groups of up to 1,600 people.With its friendly staff and easy accessibility to the Las Vegas Strip (plus complimentary airport shuttle service is available!), the Alexis Park All Suite Resort is perfect for travelers who want to immerse themselves in relaxation while taking in the sights and sounds of the Entertainment Capital of the World.-- By Renée LiButti
Front desk staff friendly & very helpful, room was clean but does need upgrades to plumbing fixtures and kitchenette. Unable to get hot water at the sinks in bathrooms, shower was okay. Good food in resturant, but sevice was slow unless ate from buffet. Would stay here again but not in a loft room, over priced for what you get.
A patterned glass facade and a unique crescent shape help set Vdara Hotel & Spa at ARIA Las Vegas apart from other properties on the Las Vegas Strip. The 57-story, all-suite hotel truly has a sophisticated, international flair. Designed by world-renowned RV Architecture, the non-smoking, non-gaming boutique property offers an exclusive environment with modern amenities and services. Guests feel removed from, yet close to the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas. Pieces of fine art are showcased throughout, including Frank Stella's 32-foot-long "Damascus Gate Variation I" at the reception desk and Peter Wegner's wall pieces "Day for Night, Night for Day" in Vdara's concierge lobby. Vdara's porte-cochère offers an unparalleled view of Nancy Rubins' 57-foot-wide by 75-foot-long large-scale installation "Big Edge."Sitting atop the porte-cochère, the Pool & Lounge Vdara overlooks the Strip. Complete with daybeds, cabanas and semi-private plunge pools, the deck area is great for relaxation as well as pool parties.With a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, Vdara demonstrates its commitment to sustainability with initiatives such as coated windows to reflect light and reduce heat transfer into the building. The 18,000-square-foot ESPA is a spa that offers a wide variety of massages, facials and body treatments. Suites have open floor plans featuring limited-edition artwork, fully equipped kitchens and modern technology, including a media hub for MP3 players, cameras, DVD players and game consoles. Horizontal windows allow for natural light and sweeping views of the city and mountains.While guests at Vdara have access to the many amenities of nearby resorts and the Strip -- walkways connect Vdara to the neighboring Bellagio and ARIA Las Vegas -- they also have plenty to enjoy solely at Vdara. They can grab a drink or their morning coffee at Bar Vdara. There is also 16,500 square feet of banquet space on the property for special events, meetings and upscale functions.
