Vdara , also Vdara Hotel & Spa , is a hotel in Las Vegas . As part of the CityCenter , it stands between the Aria Resort & Casino and the Bellagio . The 176 meter high Vdara has 1,495 suites on its 57 floors, ranging in size from 48.9 to 163 m².


The Vdara was the CityCenter's first hotel to open. The opening ceremony took place on December 1st, 2009. The Vdara celebrated the topping-out ceremony on May 14, 2008 as the first hotel in the project . All 1,495 suites have a luxury kitchen. Many suites also have a washing machine and tumble dryer. The architect of the building was Rafael Viñoly .

The architecture of the Vdara came under criticism when a guest was exposed to scorching, pain-inducing heat while staying in the pool area. The mirrored glass surfaces, which reflect the sunlight and thus keep the heat out of the building, in conjunction with the curved surface lead to a concentration of the sunlight. At lunchtime, sunlight can be reflected and bundled so strongly that burns are possible. A similar problem occurs with the skyscraper " 20 Fenchurch Street " in London, also designed by Rafael Viñoly .


On September 14, 2009, Vdara was awarded the LEED Gold Prize for energy and environmentally friendly building .
