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.

The room was pretty, the sofa bed was horrid! The 2 TV's were cool, but you could hear them both equally... the view was spectacular, the walk to the strip was horrid. The lack of a casino was no fun. The food was very expensive, the buffet 44$...I bought milk in the shop, it was spoiled, I bought a dessert in the shop, it was bad. No soda machines, soda in the shop was 3.48$... ridiculous. the free bottled water was nice, the bathroom was gorgeous. The 'tram' between the 3 hotels was nice, but the signage in the hotels were poor. The Bellagio is the nicest, I really love the decorations in the seasonal room and the crepe's in the chocolate store are great. Overall the Vdara is not my cup of tea. I like the ease of being ON the strip.

Nice lady showing a couple of older heavy women how to shake our booties. It was fun and entertaining, although impossible for us to do.

From the minds behind the popular topless revue "X Burlesque" comes the sexy show "X Rocks" -- a show that combines hot dancers with iconic songs to create a performance to capture the hearts of rock 'n' roll fans everywhere.Husband-and-wife team Matt and Angela Stabile have created and produced striptease spectaculars on the Las Vegas Strip and in downtown for the past 10 years. With "X Rocks" the duo have married an intense rock soundtrack with iconic songs by the bands who put the "heavy" in Heavy Metal. together with sultry dance choreography."We've taken some of the most powerful rock songs of all time and combined them with erotic, high-energy choreography and unbelievable sets to create a show unlike any we've ever produced," Angela said. "With surprises throughout, 'X Rocks' delivers on its name and then some.""X Rocks" also features comedian John Bizarre. You may have seen Bizarre performing stand-up comedy on "The Tonight Show," Showtime and Comedy Central. In "X Rocks" Bizarre takes on the challenge of being the funny guy in the midst of a burlesque show. And no, he doesn't take is shirt off. What he does do is keep you laughing with a short routine providing a hilarious interlude in a very sexy show.

NOT Worth it
PostedSeptember 19, 2013
This is in a small room, men only, not a production show. Good comedian in the 10 minutes he was on. What a waste of my time and money.

Does the Vdara supply their room kitchens with utensils (forks, spoons, plates) or is there need to shop for your own paper/plastic dining tools?

You have to request the kitchen supplies.
