Vdara Hotel and Spa: No Smoke, No Games, All Fun


Interested in immersing yourself in Sin City stereotypes?

MGM Resort International, the world’s premier developer and operator of luxury resorts, provides a new addition to the Las Vegas scene: Vdara Hotel & Spa. Vdara is the premiere non-gaming, smoke-free, eco-friendly, all-suite boutique retreat in Las Vegas.

That’s right, eco-friendly Vegas.

Gone are the days where everyone’s Las Vegas vacation included clouds of smoke, the shuffling of cards, and the incessant ringing of slot machines. Today millions of tourists flock to the city to take in the ever-popular Cirque du Soleil spectacles, Broadway musicals, comedy shows, magic shows, circus acts, and big-name concerts. Vegas clubs are packed every night and luxury spas are booked well in advance.

Visitors to the city are no longer focused exclusively on the gaming aspect of the city, and Vdara is ahead of the pack in this regard.

Eco-conscious tourists will be happy to know Vdara has achieved LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The building itself was designed to reduce energy and water consumption while improving indoor air quality. The property features the world’s first fleet of stretch limousines powered by compressed natural gas (CNG), one of the cleanest-burning alternative fuels.
