All the Best In­dul­gences

Where Las Vegas - - CONTENTS -

Dis­cover the swanki­est suites, restau­rants with over-the-top menus and VIP ways to see shows on the Strip.

Flash back to 1989, when Las Ve­gas was still more of a cow­boy town, at least un­til Steve Wynn came along and opened the glitzy Mi­rage. That turn­ing point in his­tory not only in­tro­duced the world to tiger-tam­ing ma­gi­cians and aquar­i­ums in the lobby but high-end lux­ury suites. Af­ter, nearly ev­ery re­sort in Ve­gas re­sponded with their own dream homes away from home, bring­ing ac­com­mo­da­tions fit for a pres­i­dent, for­mer digs that once ap­peared on “The Real World,” fan­tasy suites be­yond your ex­pec­ta­tions and more. Here, a look at four of the swanki­est suites found in Las Ve­gas, cov­er­ing the lat­est and great­est to the re­li­able stand­bys.

THE “REAL WORLD” SUITE, HARD ROCK HO­TEL

Party like a rock star in this 4,200-square-foot pent­house that ap­peared on the 25th sea­son of the MTV show in 2011. Make like the re­al­ity stars and sleep in one of three bed­rooms, or hang out in the six-per­son mo­saic hot tub with a view of the Las Ve­gas Strip. Other ameni­ties in­clude a full kitchen and din­ing room for 12 and a lounge com­plete with a fully stocked bar, pool ta­ble and flat panel TVs. Don’t for­get the sin­gle-lane au­to­mated bowl­ing al­ley.

JACKIE GAUGHAN SUITE, EL CORTEZ

Stay in a suite straight out of the 1980s that used to be the home of the ho­tel mag­nate. The 2,700-square-foot suite fea­tures a romper room with vin­tage records and over­ized vel­vet and shag pil­lows scat­tered about the space.

PRES­I­DEN­TIAL SUITE, CAE­SARS PALACE

Make like for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama and head to this 22,000-square-foot suite fit for a head of state with six bed­rooms and eight bath­rooms. You could get lost in the two kitchens and two pa­tios that have hosted the likes of Jen­nifer Lopez, Cher and Hol­ly­wood power cou­ple Cather­ine Zeta-Jones and Michael Dou­glas.

HARD­WOOD SUITE, PALMS

Yes, a hard­wood bas­ket­ball court com­plete with a locker room and NBA-sized fold- out beds come with this 10,000-square-foot suite. The lounge in­cludes a dance floor and guests can shoot pool if they’re not in the mood for hoops.

The Pent­house “Real World” Suite at the Hard Rock Ho­tel fea­tures its own bowl­ing al­ley.
