Top 5 Most Exclusive Hotels in Las Vegas
While Las Vegas caters for all budgets, the city’s most exclusive hotels are known the world over for their poshness and exceptionality.
Are you planning your next trip to Las Vegas but are unsure where to stay? If you are one of the fortunate few with slightly deeper pockets, you’d be relieved that Sin City has no shortage of luxurious resorts and hotels. Whether you enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Strip or prefer a slightly more pristine side of town, you won’t struggle too long to find glamorous accommodation that suits your taste.
And even amongst the best, there are a handful of hotels that stick out above the rest in terms of service, comfort, and amenities. Here’s our pick of the crème de la crème of the Las Vegas hotel offering:
1. Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
Situated on the Las Vegas Boulevard, the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas is a stunning and luxurious hotel with a classy yet unobtrusive atmosphere. This triple five-star hotel is a boutique compared to other monumental towers on the Strip, distinguished by its beauty and subtle Asian-inspired design characteristics.
The hotel’s 392 rooms are spacious and filled with modern amenities, including 42-inch flat-screen TVs. The hotel’s acclaimed spa, which is very popular amongst the guests, has some of the best masseuses in Vegas. Although the Mandarin Oriental doesn’t have its own casino, you won’t have to travel far to find one since the Monte Carlo Casino is right next door.
2. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
One of the most modern hotels in Sin City, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has all that you’d expect from a luxury casino hotel. The hotel is found on the Strip, a few steps from Bellagio and Crystals. It has 3,041 comfortable and modern rooms featuring minibars, wireless internet access, flat-screen TVs, and air-conditioners. Each room has a spacious, marble-decked bathroom with separate seating areas.
There are three open-air swimming pools and three jacuzzies for those who prefer to take a dip between meals. The spa offers body treatments, massages, and facials. Both guests and critics highly rate the hotel’s Wicked Spoon brunch buffet. The Cosmopolitan is also one of the few hotels in Vegas that offers rooms with balconies (in-suite categories). The Cosmopolitan is a member of the Marriot hotel group.
