All the Best Indulgences
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.
