Las Vegas Revealed: Suites and Villas of the High Rollers
For most of us out there we’ll only ever see the inside of some of the most extravagant suites from movies and music video’s or the lucky few who share through Instagram (we are not jealous by the way … not … one … bit!).
Here is my pick of the top 10 and why
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
palm trees on a sandy beachSneaking into the top 10 is the Wraparound Suite at the modern Cosmopolitan. For 2 people the room covers 1,200 sq ft with a 480 sq ft private balcony, so very comfortable for 2 and enough room for another 8 people to socialise in the living room and kitchen area.
Compared to other on this list the suite looks like the baby of the group and for good reason with rates starting at just £249 a night (off peak) this is an affordable option for many. Many groups choose to book this suite as a base then add rooms either connecting or close by for the rest of the party.
Some of the balcony’s look over the Bellagio fountains so grab a glass of champagne and feel like a star for a night or two without breaking the bank!
Executive Parlor Suite
One of the most iconic hotels on the Las Vegas strip and rightly so. The Bellagio has always stood the test of time with its classical styling and service but with this suite the modern touches are not far away. Your billiards lounge and wet bar mix well with the Italian marble bath yet you can relax in the tub with a flat screen TV before heading to the media room taking in the 5 TV screen set up with the latest surround sound throughout the suite.
If you get bored of the suite you can always head down to the Chairmans lounge which not only serves as a more relaxing area to spend time but where you’ll get a pleasant check-in experience.
From £612 per night
Hard Rock Hotel
Penthouse Real World Suite
Just under 5,000 sq tf this tiny suite only manages to squeeze in 3 large funky bedrooms, a kitchen and pool table. I do understand that with its own spa room and fish tank it might get a little cramped as you can only get 12 people around the dining table. Okay, so it’s a big suite – I only jest as they also include a SINGLE lane bowling alley in the room too.
If you ever fancy playing pool, bowling then relaxing in your own private spa without leaving your room, you’ve found the best place to be!
At £5900 a night I’d expect two bowling lanes but that’s just me!
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
We’re back at the Cosmo! You’ve booked the wraparound suites for your friends (you’re a generous person obviously) but you need something a little more … special. They do not let you down with the Bungalows, which have 3 floors by the way – it must be an American thing, along with butler service of course! Take a dip in your Jacuzzi plunge pool or relax on your private terrace overlooking the Marquee Dayclub Pool.
Starting from £4000 per night you’ll be sure to get the latest tech gadgets and styling in the room whilst staying right in the action!
The W Hotel
The Extreme WOW suite
New to Las Vegas (officially opening February 2017) the first W hotel in the city and a welcome hotel to the funky party vibe. Taking over one of the SLS towers the W offer the Extreme WOW suite.
This penthouse suite has original artwork, your own private workout room and let’s face it some of the most lavish décor out there. If that wasn’t enough they also got Lenny Kravitz to design the room!!
One of the most popular Las Vegas suites for a stag party, with 10,000 square feet of space over two floors there is plenty of room for you and your friends to have a crazy night! If you would prefer to chill, then the basketball half court (with a locker room too!) should entertain a few of you – failing that a full bar, pool table and more TV screens than you’ll ever need (there are 11 by the way! )
Booking this suite will certainly make it a trip to Las Vegas you’ll never forget!
The Mansion at MGM
This was known as the secret hotel of Las Vegas as you would have to be a MGM high roller in order to get an invitation to stay here, a few years back they decided to open up this exclusive area to qualified paying guests. If you end up here, you know you’ve made it (or spent a small fortune in the casino!).
From a one bedroom villa to the highest standard four-bedroom villa these Mediterranean themed residences would easily fool you into thinking you were wandering around an Italian mansion on the coast, until you look up and see the familiar green MGM room of course…
This 3 bedroom villa in the Nobu Hotel (another hotel within a hotel) will set you back a cool $35,000 per night. Designed by David Rockwell with a modern Japanese styling you have the hotel only roof top villa. Overlooking the Bellagio fountains with the Las Vegas strip right in front of your own private Zen garden, water features, BBQ and whirlpool to relax from the manic Las Vegas nights.
At 10,300 square-foot you have enough room for a private spa area when you can have massages in your room, this is for those who want a relaxing space this is certainly the one.
Don’t worry for your $35,000 a night you do get transfers included
Two Story Sky Villa
This has been at the top of my wish list ever since I stumbled across it. Previously known as the Playboy suite, back when Hugh Heffner could stay in his branded room for free (that’s a $40,000 per night discount by the way).
Now known as the Two Story Sky Villa it loses none of the wow factor. Private glass elevator to the room, private balcony overlooking The Strip, rotating bed, in room soaking tub, floor-to-ceiling windows spanning both floors and the suites focal point – a cantilevered pool that extends out from the balcony!
Words can do little to explain how amazing this suite is – it really is a prime example of excess and extravagance… which is what Vegas is all about!
