It’s the suite life, indeed. Las Vegas is known for its incredible accommodations that cater to both high rollers and those who want to be one, even if only for a night.
Historically, the biggest and the best rooms here were reserved for those who were dropping major coin in the casino. But as the visitor demographic has shifted from customers focused on gaming to patrons with an itch for entertainment, some of the best units are now up for grabs to anyone who’s willing to pay.
The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino’s Chairman Suite
The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s refreshed Chairman Suite offers a modern yet thoroughly elegant stay. A night in this storied accommodation is a one-of-a-kind experience. Ranging from more than 6,000 to nearly 8,000 square feet (depending on if you configure three or four bedrooms), the Chairman Suite comes with 24-hour butler service; media, massage and workout rooms; a steam room; a sauna; and a salon.
Outside, you’ll find a terrace with a private pool and spa. The overall color palette showcases clean, bright hues of cream, silver, white and blue complete with custom-built furniture crafted in Singapore.
Adorning the dining space, a chandelier made of 30 hand-blown, double-layer glass teardrops, sprinkled with gold dust, cascades light upon the room. Two of the other most outstanding interior features are the Italian-made silk entry mural that has no start or end point, and a 75-inch TV in the living room hidden behind 12-foot rosewood panels.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ Penthouses
In the Four-Star hotel’s east tower, discover 21 new penthouses vying for bragging rights as the most jaw-dropping suites in town. Conceived by three different world-famous designers (Tihany Design, Daun Curry and Richmond International), each of these accommodations expresses a unique identity and, likewise, will appeal to the varied tastes of VIP guests.
The individual penthouses range from 2,000 to 5,000 square feet. A private gaming salon designed by Adam D. Tihany is also available exclusively to those in the penthouses. If you’ve dreamt of staying in a room with a blue suede door, where a black lacquered Pegasus greets your guests and there’s a champagne bucket conveniently built into the coffee table, these are the suites for you.
Caesars Entertainment recently unveiled a new booking website for its portfolio of nearly 2,000 luxury suites and villas. Caesars Suites is the definitive resource for any occasion where standard just won’t do. In this database of opulence for places such as Forbes Travel Guide Recommended The Cromwell, all the VIP services and luxury amenities — like exclusive check-in and access to Total Rewards Diamond lines — are included.
Within this collection, you’ll find the newly remodeled Ultra Panorama Suite at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The focal points of the 1,255-square-foot Panorama Suite are an incredible 180-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip and an eye-catching custom, round king bed.
This suite looks as if it came straight out of Casino, except it’s the real deal and you are the star. Bonus points for the spacious living room with dining table and the luxe bathroom with an oversize soaking tub.
Across the street at Caesars Palace, check in to the Julius Royal Duplex Suite inside the newly reimagined Julius Tower. As the name implies, there are two floors and more than 2,000 square feet of lavishness. Ideal for bachelor or bachelorette parties, the suite lets you and your friends lounge on a comfortable sectional couch, host a grand feast in the dining area and shoot some late-night pool on the billiard table.
A stay here also includes complimentary resort fees and round-trip airport limo service.
W Las Vegas
The all-new W Las Vegas, taking over the former Lux Tower at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, celebrates its grand opening in March with a crown jewel atop its glistening tower. The 2,382-square-foot Extreme Wow Suite was designed by musician Lenny Kravitz and affords views of both the mountains and downtown Las Vegas. The mirrored stalactite ceiling, grand piano and plush red sofa are all rock-star approved.
The special treatment starts at the front door as you enter through a private porte cochere into the W Living Room lobby and bar with cool accents everywhere, including an art installation made from poker chips hand-signed by workers who built the hotel, a neon art “desert garden” by artist Keith Lemley, an elevator lobby lined with playing cards from the original Sahara casino and a boardwalk-style fortune teller named Booker Glam who spews words of wisdom to good-luck seekers.
