*** Please note, normally we have an AIM post on Mondays, but since it is a holiday, all 5 of us will be back next Monday with a new post!**
This was a bit of an unplanned trip. One of John’s friends invited us both out to Vegas and put us up in the Vdara hotel. It’s not a trip I would have thought to do, but I wasn’t going to turn down that generous offer! Now, I am leaving Vegas on Monday as just a long weekend, but John will be in Vegas for a week.
The irony is that it was raining when we arrived in Vegas. Then it stopped and got really muggy. Really, Vegas?? Somebody lied to me about the dry heat.
Anyway, This is the Vdara. It’s pretty new, from 2009, and it is an eco friendly hotel, which you all know I love. The rooms are all suites. There is no casino and no smoking in this hotel, so it was a bit quieter for that.
King size bed.
Which has a view of the TV and the eating area:
It has a kitchenette:
And a fabulous bathroom!
I actually wasn’t super crazy about the shower. I miss my rain showerhead The tub I loved, though.
I even bought some bubble bath to use for it
View from our hotel room. 22nd floor.
That’s the Bellagio fountain in the background.
Here is the view at night.
John and I wandered around checking things out.
John has been here before several times (playing poker), but I have not. I don’t gamble much. I can play poker and blackjack, but I was more interested in what else there was to do in town. I have to say I loved how many flowers I saw in the casino and hotels. Like the mini botanical garden inside the Bellagio:
You guys know how much I loved this!
I loves my hubby

It’s nice just to walk around the casinos and really pay attention to the details. They certainly are beautiful.
I liked going to Paris!
The Eifel Tower is over the casino there. When you get inside, it is like downtown Paris streets.
Even the bathrooms were very French rococo style. I always describe women’s bathrooms to John because he is amazed at how much nicer they are than the men’s ‘get in, get out’ places. I even took a picture of the sink in the bathroom to show him LOL!
Lots of shopping the the Paris ‘underground’. Check out these boots!
I will do another post as this one will just be waayyyy too long. I took hundreds of pictures!
