VDARA HOTEL & SPA EARNS PRESTIGIOUS 2011 AAA FOUR DIAMOND AWARD

Vdara Hotel & Spa, a luxury boutique property located at CityCenter, has earned the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for 2011. The all-suite, non-gaming hotel made its debut in December 2009 and the designation marks the hotel’s first AAA rating.

“We are honored to receive our first AAA Four Diamond Award as it is a direct reflection of the personalized service and experience we are committed to providing to our guests,” said Mary Giuliano, general manager of Vdara. “This rating is a testament to the dedication and hard work provided by all of our talented employees each and every day.”
According to AAA standards, a Four Diamond rating reflects accommodations that are “refined and stylish” with “enhanced quality throughout” and a “high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.”

“By earning a spot on the list of AAA Four Diamond rated properties and restaurants, Vdara has really exemplified the effort and attention it takes from management and staff to set itself apart from other resort properties," said AAA Nevada spokesperson Michael Geeser. "A Four Diamond property must provide excellent service and hospitality and Vdara certainly does."

Collectively, Four Diamond hotels and restaurants represent just 3.6 percent of the current 59,000 AAA/CAA Approved and Diamond Rated establishments.
