Transport yourself back about 30 years, and you can see grizzled gamblers manning blackjack tables, but Vdara Hotel & Spa thinks that’s a relic of the past. The hotel doesn’t allow smoking, and doesn’t have a casino, unlike most of the hotels in Sin City. Suites are the only type of rooms you’ll find at Vdara, which makes the hotel feel more residential and less rigid and traditional. Those suites range from the deluxe — considered the base suite but with a kitchenette and 582 square feet — to the panoramic, where you’ll have views of the Strip and mountains in the distance.
To top it off, Vdara is especially environmentally conscious and actively preserves water and energy. This is something you’ll be hard-pressed to find at many other glitzy Las Vegas properties — places that pride themselves on huge fountains, lava-spewing volcanoes and all the excess the city has built its name on. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel feels like a breath of fresh air — quite literally, thanks to the no-smoking policy.
