It’s no secret Las Vegas is home to some of the world’s most eye-catching hotels, but there’s so much more to the resorts than just the striking architecture visitors see on the outside.
From private villas to sumptuous suites, Las Vegas offers some of the most luxurious accommodations guests could ever imagine. ARIA’s two-story Sky Villas (ariaskysuites.com), for example, not only offer stunning views of the Strip or desert through 36-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, but select villas even come with their own private massage room, sauna, steam room and barbershop. The Anthology Villas at Caesars Palace (caesars.com/anthology-suites), meanwhile, only recently became open to the public and include such unique features as an exotic fish tank in the 9,500-square-foot Marcus Aurelius Villa and a private outdoor garden with a 390-square-foot pool at the 11,200-square-foot Titus Villa.
The LINQ Hotel & Casino (caesars.com/linq) recently unveiled 12 rooms with trendy bunk beds for guests to sleep in. Ideal for Millennials, the innovative rooms provide an affordable option for groups who want to stay together for cost efficiency but still want to experience the resort’s many amenities — like being able to have a variety of board games delivered to your room. The hotel also features 25 poolside Cabana Rooms that are perfect during the summer, as they include private patios with direct access to the resort’s pool deck.
Even standard rooms are extraordinary thanks to recent remodels at several resorts, including Excalibur, (excalibur.com) which just refreshed 1,995 guest rooms and suites in its newly renamed Royal Tower. Offering an experience fit for royalty, the upgraded accommodations feature a completely smoke-free experience, new carpeting and bedding, modern furnishings and 40-inch flat-screen TVs. To time with the hotel’s 50th anniversary, Caesars Palace (caesars.com) also recently remodeled one of its towers, transforming the original Roman Tower into the 587-room Julius Tower. Amenities include 55-inch TVs and plush Beautyrest Bouvet Island mattresses. Select suites even have specially-curated minibars.
Encore Resort and the Encore Tower Suites at Wynn Las Vegas (wynnlasvegas.com) recently underwent a refresh, too, and now boast such enhanced technological amenities as convenient USB ports and outlets for mobile phones and tablets by the bedside and desk. Other notable changes include new 55-inch 4K televisions, Black Galaxy granite tops and custom-woven floor coverings.
With so many lavish lodging options to choose from, Vegas visitors always hit the jackpot!
