SUITE LIFE

Pri­vate gam­ing sa­lons, per­sonal sushi chefs and in-room saunas. In Ve­gas, th­ese are just ob­vi­ous pent­house perks… Right?

The lodg­ings get even more lush on the 29th floor of Cae­sars Palace. Plus: Set up shop in one of The Cos­mopoli­tan’s posh pen­t­houses.

Ev­ery­thing old will be new again in Las Ve­gas, and ev­ery­thing new won’t stay that way too long. Rein­vent ion is not only a pil­lar on which the city’s hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try stands, it’s a prom­ise to high rollers who ar­rive with the ex­pec­ta­tion that they’ll ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing new and dif­fer­ent. Th at’s what they’re pay­ing for, isn’t it? Keep­ing that prom­ise means keep­ing up with the Jone­ses— or in Las Ve­gas’ case, the Wynns and Adel­sons— on every front. If your clos­est com­peti­tor just re­placed the car­pet in its suites, your fl oors are look­ing stale by com­par­i­son. If their beds have new sheets, you’d bet­ter up your thread count. We’re in the midst of a turnover in Strip room de­sign, one that be­gan with En­core Las Ve­gas and Vene­tian up­grad­ing their suites in 2015. Over the last 18 months, Cae­sars En­ter­tain­ment has con­tin­ued…

con­tin­ued been re­design­ing its name­sake prop­erty— es­pe­cially tin­ker­ing with its top f loors— and Cos­mopoli­tan has in­vested in some of its pre­mier real es­tate to lure play­ers with deep pock­ets. Here are some of those de­signs, and the ex­tras in­cluded. CAE­SARS PALACE Cae­sars is pre­par­ing to un­veil a new look for the vil­las on the 29th floor of its Palace Tower. The ren­o­va­tions are part of a two-year pro­ject to re­fresh more than 800 suites in the Cae­sars En­ter­tain­ment port­fo­lio. Among the most im­pres­sive re­designs is the Julius Ex­ec­u­tive Du­plex Suite at the Julius Tower. This two-story, 1,438-square-foot space fea­tures Strip views, floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows and a stone bath­room. Perks in­clude air­port limo ser­vice and no re­sort fees. Speak­ing of perks, if you’re stay­ing in a villa or pent­house at Nobu Ho­tel, you can or­der a master sushi chef to your room to pre­pare your meal. Cae­sars’ $25,000-per-night Ti­tus Villa even comes with its own but­ler, and the new Au­gus­tus Spa Suite has its own sauna. COS­MOPOLI­TAN Start­ing from scratch—lit­er­ally, as the floors had been empty— Cos­mopoli­tan has trans­formed the top of its Boule­vard Tower into a 63,000-square­foot lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence to make guests feel like 007. Ac­claimed de­sign­ers Daun Curry, Adam Ti­hany and Rich­mond In­ter­na­tional, who all worked as con­sul­tants to Mar­nell Com­pa­nies, con­trib­uted to the 21 Boule­vard Pen­t­houses, which are larger than most homes—2,000 to 5,000 square feet— and fea­ture in-suite bars where one can en­joy a vodka mar­tini shaken or stirred.

The big­gest lure for th­ese big spenders is the pri­vate gam­ing salon with the Strip in full view. For their eyes only, of course.

From top: The Ti­tus Villa in Cae­sars Palace comes with a baby grand, work­ing fire­place and more am­bi­ence than you can shake a chan­de­lier at; bring your chef to the 11,200-square-foot Ti­tus Villa. With a full kitchen and this din­ing room, you’ll need plenty of staff to fill this space.

From left: The hand­i­work of de­signer Daun Curry, who makes her fi­first foray into ho­tel de­sign with con­tri­bu­tions to Cos­mopoli­tan’s new pen­t­houses; look for pony hair walls, hand- cut Ital­ian mo­saic mu­rals and this grotto with a hand­cut mar­ble soak­ing tub.

Funky art is a hall­mark of Rich­mond In­ter­na­tional’s de­signs for Cos­mopoli­tan.
