Elegant and Intimate Meeting Facilities Adjacent to CityCenter’s
ARIA Resort & Casino and Famed Bellagio Hotel and Casino

Vdara is an internationally inspired all-suite hotel and spa designed for those who love the excitement of Las Vegas but prefer to enjoy it in an exclusive, non-gaming and smoke-free environment. Solidifying CityCenter’s commitment to sustainability, Vdara has achieved LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Its boutique meeting facility welcomes guests to a world of sophistication as rich in design as it is in technological and culinary offerings. Vdara delivers intricately customized events for groups up to 400 people and is a haven for those with an acquired taste for impeccable service.

With more than 10,000 square feet of adaptive meeting spaces ranging from a contemporarily styled ballroom to a 14-person executive boardroom, Vdara extends the unparalleled offerings and professional service for which MGM Resorts International is renowned worldwide. Shimmering light fixtures lead guests into the sleek pre-function area directly off the hotel’s lobby, bathed in luxurious colors and accented by chic artwork. The boardroom, ballroom and meeting rooms all open to this space, which offers a convenient meeting place and congregation area for groups. Easily accessible from Vdara’s main entrance and connected via pedestrian walkway to Bellagio, the refined convention area boast state-of-the-art technology and the flexibility to accommodate the needs of any function. Vdara’s convention services and food and beverage professionals assist in the entire planning process from décor and entertainment to creating tailored menus by Vdara’s Executive Chef Martin Heierling, the renowned innovator of Bellagio’s award-winning restaurant Sensi.

Designed by RV Architecture, LLC, a critically acclaimed international practice led by Rafael Viñoly, Vdara’s distinctive crescent shape and unique skin of patterned glass creates one of the most striking design statements in Las Vegas. Within, natural materials such as warm wood, sandstone and pebbles underscore Vdara’s contemporary comfort and style, while embracing the sustainable, environmental stewardship MGM Resorts International has championed at all of CityCenter’s venues. Vdara is a non-smoking facility and has been designed to reduce energy consumption, promote water conservation and improve indoor air quality. Vdara also features the world’s first fleet of stretch limos powered by compressed natural gas (CNG). CNG has abundant domestic reserves and is one of the cleanest-burning alternative fuels available. Vdara is designed to achieve more than 30 percent improvement in energy efficiency and save an estimated 6 million gallons of water each year, equating to a savings of 30 percent within the building and 60 percent in outdoor landscaping over existing building codes.

Vdara’s eco-friendly efforts carry through to operations and guest experience. The spa and hotel amenities offer branded, result-based products. Vdara’s 1,495 suites are luxuriously appointed with open floor plans and horizontal windows that deliver expansive views of the city and mountains.
