Las Vegas is an over-the-top city, filled with some of the best hotels in the world, each one constantly in a healthy competition to outshine the others. Fortunately, the diversity of hotels in Sin City offers an abundance of options to appeal to every type of traveler. But for those in the market for some fancy digs that are not just big but also unique, certain Las Vegas hotels jump straight to the front of the line. Here are five luxurious and unique Las Vegas suites that do not disappoint.
The Presidential Strip-View Suite at The Four Seasons
The Four Seasons is synonymous with over-the-top luxury, and the formerly conservative hotel brand is now stepping outside of the box. After undergoing a massive renovation, their Las Vegas property offers a little extra shine and color, making it fit in perfectly with its surroundings. The five Presidential Suites, in addition to the remainder of the guestrooms, are all located on floors 35–39 of the Mandalay Bay tower. The 2,225-square-foot Presidential Strip-View Suite has floor-to-ceiling wraparound windows that boast what most consider to be the best panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Lux King Albert Suite at SLS
With its great track record of trendy and chic hotels, SLS is doing wonders for the north end of the Strip, which was sorely in need of updates and attention. Following a successful welcoming, the new kid on the Vegas block is making a splash with its luxury suites. The one-of-a-kind Lux King Albert Suite that adorns the top of the Lux Tower is designed by none other than starchitect Philippe Starck and truly leaves guests with their jaws on the ground when they enter the 1,267-square-foot suite filled with unconventional designs. The oversized bathroom maximizes space and truly shows off the edgy European style that Starck is best known for.
The Skyline Marquee Suite at MGM Grand
Having just recently completed a lengthy renovation, the iconic MGM Grand is stepping up its Vegas street cred with some very modern guestrooms. The entire 14th floor of the MGM Grand consists of their Stay Well collection, with 171 rooms and suites, including their breathtaking Skyline Marquee Suite. Every accommodation includes over 20 evidence-based health and wellness features, like the Vitamin C-infused shower and energizing light therapy. The Skyline Marquee Suite is 1,500 square-feet with two bedrooms and has gorgeous, sweeping, 180-degree views of the Strip.
The Kingpin Luxury Suite at Palms Casino Resort
The Palms Casino Resort has always been regarded as the king of specialty suites, so it’s no surprise that their Kingpin suite stands out among the rest. With two full-sized bowling lanes, the gigantic, 4,500-square-foot suite also features two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a pool table, full bar, and a theater-sized projection television with lounge. With a suite this size, filled with so much to do, you wont even have to walk outside your doors.
The Provocateur Suite at Hard Rock Hotel
When it comes to the Hard Rock Hotel, one can expect plenty of music history and memorabilia. The specialty suites here are mostly a tribute to some of the greatest bands of all time, but it wouldn’t do full justice to the rock gods without at least one fantasy-themed suite. The Provocateur Suite is designed to evoke a sexy, fetish-oriented environment, with 2,281 square-feet of black and red adorning two bedrooms and living space. The suite, designed by Mark Zeff, uses a mix of smooth, tough, and shiny textures throughout. There’s also a private balcony with a heated plunge pool and even a secret vault full of all the necessities one might need or want while staying the night.
