Luxury – Las Vegas Style
Las Vegas now has offerings to meet those consumers’ varying tastes, from elite luxury to discount bargains. Sin City has it all for any need.
Here, then, are suggestions for the top spots for visitors wanting to splurge:
Luxe attractions: It may be 10 years old, but Bellagio still can’t be beat for spectacular sightseeing without leaving the property. The fountains out front continue to captivate visitors. Inside, the conservatory offers creative and whimsical floral displays.
Luxe casino: Wynn Las Vegas offers a large yet surprisingly subdued (read: quiet) casino environment. High-rollers regularly enjoy playing the ultra-pricey slot machine, a Double Diamond reel that costs $5,000 a spin. Three Double Diamonds means a jackpot of $2.5 million for the lucky player.
Luxe escape: For those suffering from a sense of been there, done that, there’s the Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas, an oasis 20 miles east of the Strip in suburban Henderson. The hotel is free of gambling, and grown-ups and kids will enjoy boat rides on the man-made lake and “Dive-In Movies” poolside on summer evenings.
Luxe service: With a staff of 24 concierges, the Signature at MGM Grand gets frequent accolades for its superior service. The bridesmaids’ dresses got lost in transit? The staff will quickly rustle up replacements. Want to rent a Lamborghini? No problem — it’ll be out front in 20 minutes.
Luxe shopping: Whether you’re window-shopping or actually spending, Wynn Las Vegas offers an incomparable experience. The Rolex store recently sold its most expensive watch, for $485,000. There’s even a Ferrari/Maserati dealership, with in-stock models starting at just $120,000.
Luxe view: The Four Seasons wins hands-down. This hotel occupies five upper floors of Mandalay Bay. The north-facing rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows offer breathtaking vistas of the entire Strip, especially after dark.
