Las Vegas, Nevada
Four Seasons Las Vegas
What it is
A spa-like hideaway with a paradisiacal private pool scene, inventive spa and a Charlie Palmer steakhouse.
What it isn't
A casino. It’s blissfully quiet here—a much-needed reprieve from bells, bings, bops and buzzes.
What we think
“Relaxing” isn’t a typical Las Vegas descriptor. Exciting? Yes. Fun? Sure, when you’re in the mood. But rare is the Sin City hotel that leaves you feeling restored and renewed. Four Seasons is that hotel. Take the guest rooms themselves, adorned in original artwork and gleaming furniture in Art Deco silhouettes. Each one is oversized (starting at 500 square feet for a Superior Room), and stocked with down duvets and pillows, marble clad bathrooms and doting service (including 24-hour laundry and shoeshine, and twice daily housekeeping). Ask for a room on the 35th floor or higher for jaw-dropping views of the mountain-ringed cityscape.
You're here because
Vegas rarely thinks of accommodating little ones, but Four Seasons rolls out the proverbial red carpet, with kids menus, tailored welcome amenities and toiletries, gratis loaner video games, and even popcorn and soda for teens upon check-in. Here, little rollers are high rollers.
You never considered Vegas much of a food town, until tonight. Perched in a supple leather banquette at Charlie Palmer Steak, you order what’s easily the best meal you’ve had in years: a Japanese Wagyu ribeye with bone marrow, roasted garlic jus; a Ritz Cracker stuffed Maine Lobster; and a truffle baked potato. What happens here, stays here.
