The Palms, Hugh Hefner Villa:
At $40,000 a night, the spectacular views aren’t the only thing you’ll expect during a night in the Palms’ Hugh Hefner Sky Villa. One of a handful of “fantasy” suites in the newly renovated Fantasy Tower property, the Playboy himself helped design the space that features an outdoor terrace with a cantilevered Jacuzzi tub, personal massage room, media room, dry sauna and an eight foot round rotating bed, complete with a mirrored ceiling.
Never leaving this two-story, 9000 square foot suite during a business trip might seem a bit extravagant, but with space for up to 250 guests, celebrating a deal never seemed more enticing. A fantasy unlike any other suite in this 47 story hotel, the Playboy fun doesn’t have to end at the bedroom door. Fantasy Tower and Palms Place, which finished its $750 million expansion in 2005, also welcomed the only Playboy Club, an audacious nightclub that includes an exclusive lounge and themed retail venue.
Venetian Renaissance Suite:
At just under 2000 square feet, the Venetian Renaissance suite is more than a place to kick back and relax. Exceptionally majestic, the large marble dining table and media center provide the comfort of home in the sky. With floor to ceiling windows, evenings at the Renaissance Suite don’t have to be spent facing the 32” flat screen HDTV or lounging on the 400 count wool throw and Egyptian cotton sheets, but simply enjoying the view. You’ll find yourself hosting guests at the dining area suited for eight people and ending the evening with a nightcap at the wet bar.
After an evening out at Tao nightclub or catching the Blue Man Group’s performance, fall facedown into your king sized pillow top bed and simply switch a button to shut off the lights and block out the view. Ideal for the businessman who rarely conforms to the 9-5, the Venetian is an AAA Five Diamond Award winner and has been named one of the Top 20 Hotels in the Americas by Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.
Caesar’s Palace Emperors Suite:
Think you’ll find the Hangover suite in Vegas? This is as close as you’ll come to the place where Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifanakis and a tiger all woke up that fateful morning; and while it’s not the most high end suite in the hotel, it’s the most well known. Deemed the “Emperors Suite,” aka the “Hangover Suite,” characteristics of that infamous bachelor’s party caught on screen are evident in the two story room that includes a lounge, swiveling LCD widescreen, dining space and wet bar.
The two bedroom suite is even more luxurious after knowing that it’s the actual room where “Rainman” was filmed. The movie that earned four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Dustin Hoffman, leaves little to the imagination for all counting cards fantasies. While it might not be the real Caesar’s Palace, you will get beeper reception and can easily work late into the night.
MGM The Mansion:
If you think staying at the MGM Sky Villas is exclusive, enjoy real exclusivity at The Mansion. It’s so exclusive, in fact, only those with enough casino credit (around $50,000 an hour) or clout are able to even consider booking a room at more than $5000 a night. The 29 Tuscan inspired villas totally eclipsed from the hustle of Las Vegas’ nightlife are all 290,000 square feet and come with a getaway all their own.
Traditional Tuscan living is portrayed in the high vaulted ceilings, 800 piece art collection and decorated wood carvings. The Mansion guests divide their time from the black jack table – where a good hundred grand is the minimum bet – lounging fireside in the Grand Salon, queue at the billiard table or laps at the exclusive pool.
Palazzo Resort Lago:
As the sister hotel to the Venetian, don’t expect to be disappointed with the number of features that this resort offers. Much like the Renaissance Suite in the Venetian, this one bedroom, 1943 square foot room features a living room, pool table and piano for all your relaxation needs. Keeping the business side of things fairly close, as in all of the luxurious suites in both the Venetian and Palazzo, it includes a fax, copier and printer. Stately and modest, amenities like the 42” flat screen HDTV, sleeper-sofa, jetted bathtub and marble bathroom all complement the room’s general business attire.
Most notable for the Palazzo is the Prestige, its concierge level. Champagne gets poured upon check-in, while Canyon RanchSpa fitness facility access and an array of the finest cuisine are delivered upon request. Working double-time during their stay in Sin City, Jessica Alba, Kourtney Kardashian and Ryan Phillippe have all explored the Palazzo’s Lago, which provides entertainment at a moment’s notice, from Jersey Boys’ to Lavo Italian.
ARIA Resort Penthouse Suites:
It might have gotten the attention thanks to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, but since 2009 Aria Resort has been shining with its connection to CityCenter. For anyone with the exclusive pass, the shimmer starts during check-in for the Penthouse Suites, where isolation is the ultimate goal. Private check-in and private elevators offer an immediate intimacy unlike any other hotel, and accelerate upon entrance into one of the personal 1465 square foot Penthouses – offered in both one and two bedrooms.
Floor to ceiling windows are a must-have in Las Vegas, and the ARIA shows off stoutly. Touch screen technology isn’t the only executive menu on the list, where your personal concierge provides a full lounge of food and beverage, mini-bar, daily newspaper and twice-daily housekeeping. Ideal for business trips as well as business pleasure, the workstation units the experience with high-speed WiFi and a laptop sized safe.
Wynn Las Vegas Parlor Suite:
Conducting business while on the craps table has never worked more seamlessly than when at the Wynn Las Vegas; particularly when you’re staying in one of the Parlor Suites of the Tower Suites. Weeklong business trips caravanning back and forth from the office won’t seem as demanding when you’ve got 1280 square feet of space to frolic in between play and work. Better yet, host the team in the living room where you’ve got a 52” flat-panel television to work with.
The Parlor Suite is among a host of timeless and chic apartment style rooms at the Wynn, a name synonymous with luxury. Aside from the required work space , which supplies business travelers the proactive environment for conference calls and meetings, the Parlor provides a powder room, granite wet bar, 310 thread count Egyptian cotton linens, soaking tub, walk-in closets and in-room massage, pedicure or hair styling services. With more Forbes stars than any other resort in the world, your afternoon board table has never looked so entertaining.
Hard Rock High Roller’s Suite:
In true Hard Rock fashion, this infamous hotel on the Las Vegas strip is bringing back one of it’s most notable guests – The Real World. Celebrating 25 years of the MTV staple, The Real World will return to Las Vegas for a season featuring the updated party loft of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The announcement comes just in time, as Hard Rock recently completed their $750 million expansion with additions in the SKYBAR, Reliquary Spa and Luxury Suite Tower.
More than just cameras and seven strangers, the Spa Villas are just one among many exclusive suites offered to guests. Within the Hard Rock Hotel Tower, the rooms seep relaxation with two room villas featuring art deco décor, a private plunge pool, personal manicure and pedicure services, and floor to ceiling glass façade.
Las Vegas Hilton Tuscany Sky Villas/Classic Suites Collection:
The Las Vegas Hilton might not instantly come to mind when staying in Sin City but with your business points you’re sure to get the best deal in town. Even more obvious about working amid luxury are the Sky Villas, the host to an array of exceptional suites. Most particular is the second largest villa that’s designed with an Italian theme in mind. You’ve got the standard amenities any suites would have...but with more than 13,000 square feet. There’s a bit more room to offer a personal courtyard and pool, four bedrooms and custom murals. Oddly enough, that’s just the beginning for a venue that offers exceptional views and even greater services.
Can’t tear yourself away from your home town, even during a sinfully sweet trip to Las Vegas? The Hilton has your answer with nine, city-inspired suites that cover everything from the Hollywood hills to the Manhattan skyscrapers. The Classic Suites Collection embody everything you love about a city – from Southwestern art in the Santa Fe Suite to the wicker chairs and whitewashed walls of the Bahamas – that’ll ease your way into the comforts of Las Vegas. And now, high rollers and celebrity guests aren’t the only ones nauseating their way at a chance for “classic” consumption – as of June 2010 the suites have opened to the public.
Bellagio Vista Suite:
No true Vegas vacation would be complete without a stop at the prestigious Bellagio resort. The Fountain Show isn’t the only show that this AAA Five Diamond Award hotel is distinguished for, especially after you see its Presidential Suite. Named “One of the 500 Greatest Hotels and Resorts in the World” six years in a row by Travel + Leisure, there are enough amenities in the resort alone to keep you there all week. From the Spa at Bellagio to the Gallery of Fine Art, the array of award winning restaurants and nightclubs, Bellagio dazzles at every step (particularly the first, if you catch a glimpse of the ceiling).
The 4000 square foot Presidential Suite is no exception. Located within the 33 story Spa Tower, you’ll feel just as regal as Obama with 14 foot ceilings, an indoor garden and fountain, a boardroom that seats ten and two private baths featuring whirlpool tubs. AMX remote control systems act as the moderator, as does the 24-hour butler. With all the time saved turning down sheets or filling the tub, catch a performance – Presidential Suite guests are treated to VIP seating at any of the resort’s shows, including Cirque du Soleil’s “O.”
