High rollers are no strangers to the Strip, so when a VIP gets to town it takes something truly spectacular to drop their jaws. We have rounded up three of Las Vegas’ most impressive suites, which are sure to leave even the most seasoned Vegas veteran speechless.
|The Palazzo boasts of luxury in the details, right from the entryway throughout the space, as with a master bedroom pictured here.|
Perched on the 21st floor of the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas is the Emperor Suite. The largest one-bedroom space in the hotel, the suite is a perfect backdrop for parties, private dinners and whatever your A-lister has in mind. The space is equipped with an open kitchen, sitting room, bar and dining room, along with a private screening room that can seat eight people. For the fitness-conscious type, the suite has its own private fitness area with a Technogym Kinesis Wall and exercise bike. Note: If guests need extra space the suite has a connecting bedroom.
Tech Touches: The suite is decked out in the latest 21st-century gear. We love the Bang & Olufsen TVs and audio systems. There is also an interactive entertainment system which can integrate guests’ personal iPods or MP3 players. There are even TVs in the bathroom.
Should guests decide to leave their room (though, why would you need to?), the hotel has a wealth of entertainment options. There are five dining establishments, from Twist by Pierre Gagnaire and Mozen Bistro, to Mandarin Bar, the Tea Lounge and the Pool Café. We say a visit to Twist is mandatory, especially with its rotating seasonal menu.
The Mandarin has been honored with the AAA Five Diamond award and the Forbes Triple Five-Star award for the hotel, The Spa and Twist by Pierre Gagnaire.

Undercover celebs, or those who just need their privacy, will love the exclusive porte-cochere entry, which can be accessed by limousine only. There is also a private elevator and in-villa check-in. These perks have attracted the likes of high roller poker pro Phil Ivey, and actress Eva Longoria Parker. Need to keep your VIP happy? We hear the team at the Sky Villa can accommodate over-the-top requests like storing wardrobe and personal items for frequent travelers, and having them arranged prior to arrival.

While staying at ARIA, take advantage of a little extra pampering at the resort’s spa. Guests in spa suites are entitled to their own spa attendant, who is on hand to take care of all the details of relaxing at The Spa & Salon at Aria. Be sure to book a Shio Salt Room, which combines aroma, light, sound and vibration therapies for a killer experience. The spa is a bi-level, 80,000-square-foot space with 62 treatment rooms.
Pool goers crashing at ARIA can scope out the scene at its huge tree-lined deck.There are three primary pools as well as Liquid, an adults-only retreat. The seasonal pool has 34 luxury cabanas, all with chaise lounges, TVs and iPod docking.

Moving further down the Strip, we suggest a stop at The Palazzo for a stay at the Chairman Suite. The luxury of this 8,000-square-foot suite is totally in the details, right from the entryway, throughout the space. We love the floor, which is made up of black Java stone and is inset with semi-precious stones (think mother of pearl, lapis, mahogany and malachite). Beyond that, the space has ten rooms, including four-and-a-half bathrooms. Such stylish digs have brought in top residents, including Kim Cattrall and other red carpet veterans.
We love the play of indoor and outdoor in this space. The suite has a private terrace with a plunge pool, Jacuzzi, lawn area, lounge chairs and an outdoor rainfall shower with a view of the Pools at The Palazzo. Chic, indeed. Other amenities include plasma TVs, Bose stereo systems, Bulgari amenities, and a media room with a karaoke machine (it is Vegas, after all).
While in town, be sure to book one of the 41 cabanas at the Palazzo Pools. There are seven pools and four hot tubs, all with cocktail service and a center bar (seasonally). The cabanas have 32-inch flat-panel LCD TVs, DVD players, two chaise lounges, fruit platters on the weekend, a fully-stocked refrigerator and more. Cool Touch: Guests can book massage appointments in their private cabanas.
Other hotel perks: The Palazzo is home to its own Canyon Ranch SpaClub, a 134,000-square-foot paradise of pampering. The spa houses the Aquavana, a European-inspired suite of thermal spa cabins, tubs and aqua thermal bathing experiences.
