When visiting the city of sin, you can choose to be a penny pincher or a baller. If you’re going to be mindful of every dollar you spend, then you’ll need to stick to the strip’s cheaper resort hotels like The Flamingo, The Quad (previously known as Imperial Palace), or Harrah’s…enjoy that.
But if you got money to blow, then you deserve a classier venue to rest your head after the long days at the pool and even longer nights out. Here’s Classy Bro’s list of the most luxurious Las Vegas resorts.
Opening in 2009, the Aria is the definition of pure elegance. It’s actually part of a larger complex called CityCenter, which in total spans 76 acres and houses multiple condominium high rises, a handful of hotel structures, and a high-end shopping center. The Aria itself consist of two curved buildings that are strategically located in a manner that allows the most sunlight as possible to hit the pool throughout the day. If you’ve been to vegas, you know how frustrating it is when the sun’s glorious rays disappear behind the humongous resort walls.
Also opening in 2009, the Mandarin Oriental is a bit down the strip and away from the majority of the action. It’s also very unique in the way that it has both condominiums and hotel rooms throughout the building. Also, the guest lobby for the hotel is on the 23rd floor. The rooms themselves are characterized by the far East designs that have been infused into every detail, which create an opulence to remember.
Home to the infamous Marquee Day and Nightclub, as well as a casino floor that will knock your socks off, The Cosmopolitan provides a venue to throw around some serious stacks. Whether your spending $30k on bottle service, or $50k on 10 hands of blackjack, The Cosmo is not for the weak at heart.
Encore Las Vegas
The sister resort to The Wynn, Encore Las Vegas is the creme de la creme. Don’t even think about walking onto the casino floor without wearing a suit, or at least a collared shirt. That’s unless yo don’t mind icy stares and ridiculing remarks. You’ll also know that you’re in a place of luxury when you realize that you’re breathing pure, refreshing oxygen that by no coincidence whatsoever, also has a slight ever-so-lovely fragrance too.
This unbelievable resort has mostly likely flown under your radar to the point that you’ve probably never even hear of it. If that’s indeed the case, then you’re in luck, let this be a guiding light.
NOBU isn’t a resort on it’s own, rather it occupies one of the towers at Caesars Palace. It’s got it’s own entrance located just off Caesars’ casino floor, which has just a handful of receptionists standing in front of the elevators, awaiting your arrival. But since the check-in process is done through iPads, you’re walking onto the the keycard access only, buttonless elevator in less than a minute. The hotel rooms exhibit stunning elegance with Asian-infused, contemporary design. But what may be the most special thing staying at NOBU is the second hotel room turndown at night…yes, the SECOND in one day. Other than the regular midday housekeeping visit, there is another visit by the cleaning service in the early evening. So the next time you return from dinner, drinks, clubs, and wooing the ladies (hopefully you have one with you), you’ll find hers and his robes and slippers laid out not he bed, a platter of lotions and cremes on your nightstand, the TV turned to a channel that has ultra-relaxing music playing to a video of a babbling brook, and finally, the scent of lavender which has been sprayed throughout the room. If all this doesn’t scream ultimate Vegas Luxury, then nothing else will.
