This low-key property is actually a hotel-condo, with beautiful independently owned suites that have efficiency kitchens, pull-out sofas, and lots of extra space. Each room also has a media hub with ports for MP3 players, digital cameras, DVD players, and gaming consoles. Bathrooms aren't as spacious as they could be, but the built-in seat in the walk-in shower is a refreshing addition. Because Vdara has a more laid-back vibe than Aria and the Mandarin Oriental, the Pool
& Lounge Vdara feels like a private swimming hole. All guests receive individualized attention here, and guests can order everything from suntan lotion to tapas and made-to-order cocktails. This personal attention continues in the spa (dubbed Spa & Salon Vdara), where a eucalyptus steam room and smoothie bar are among the main attractions. Bar Vdara is a bit sleepy; for more action, take the short walk over to the casino at Aria.
