Sin City welcomed the W Las Vegas last month on the north end of the Strip. Jetsetters should consider checking out the hotel’s new digs, which not only have that chic vibe found at other W hotels but also feel playful, fitting the location. Flying in on your own plane? Private jets should land at Henderson Executive Airport, which is 20 minutes from the hotel. The Extreme WOW Suite, designed by Lenny Kravitz, has more than 2,000 square feet of space, sleeps up to four guests and has a balcony with a view of the city and the mountains. Guests will also have access to a private butler when they book the Extreme WOW or WOW Suites. Good to know: Only these top suites have bathtubs.
The hotel is located adjacent to SLS Las Vegas, which means easy access to top restaurants, including Katsuya, Cleo, and Bazaar Meat by José Andrés. At Bazaar, a steakhouse, guests should, trust us, taste the cotton candy foie gras. Katsuya is known for its sushi and sashimi and we suggest ordering the spicy tuna crispy rice and Brussels sprouts; for some seasonal shared plates head to Cleo. (Don’t forget to order the apple tart for dessert.) To book a top accommodation or to create a special stay for a VIP, contact Christopher Baran ([email protected]); Mark Eberwein is the general manager of the hotel.
The W Las Vegas isn’t just a hideaway for party seeking Strip-goers, but it is also an oasis for those looking to relax, thanks to the Away Spa, which has 10 treatment rooms, including a couples’ room with a tub. Note: Spa reservations must be made two weeks in advance as the weekend dates fill up quickly. To book, contact Shane Upson ([email protected]; 702-761-7088). The top treatments at Away include the Detox massage, reflexology, the Vegas Baby facial and the hydration facial. Bachelorettes can buy out the spa for a fun celebration and there is also the possibility for mini massages by the pool or on the rooftop WET deck.
Harrah’s Las Vegas just opened a new tower, the Valley Tower, and two Vice Presidential Suites, the top suites that can host some memorable nights in Las Vegas.
Situated on the top floor of the Valley Tower, the 1,360-square-foot Vice Presidential Suites have a living room and dining room along with a bedroom complete with a king-sized bed. These guestrooms can also be expanded for a larger celebration by connecting them to a room with two queen beds. Tip: The VP Suites also have a whirlpool tub and all the vanities in the Valley Tower have special backlighting that are ideal for taking the perfect selfies. Guests of the VP Suite will also have views of the Strip and the High Roller observation wheel. To book a stay, contact Judith Ruffini ([email protected]).
After partying in the suite, we suggest relaxing poolside in a private cabana or guests can visit the spa, which is complete with six treatment rooms, two facial rooms and a couples’ room. Antoinette Collins([email protected]) can book VIP spa treatments, including a relaxing massage by the highly requested therapist, Adriann Golightly. Good to know: For facials or waxing services, request Carol Silva; for a deep tissue massage, request Maria Maguire and for other massages, request Stefano Bartoli.
New in Nightlife
Looking for the new, hot spot to be seen at in Las Vegas? The Venetian’s The Dorsey is the swanky, new cocktail lounge that all the Vegas-goers are talking about. It has an upbeat environment with a twist of sophistication; think Manhattan class meets Vegas’ edginess. Where does Manhattan fit into this new lounge? Sam Ross and David Rabin who are known for Café Clover in NYC developed The Dorsey. At The Dorsey, we suggest ordering the signature cocktail, The Penicillin, complete with scotch, lemon, ginger, honey and an Islay float then settle in at the bar or the large leather sofa for a fabulous evening. Want to order something to share? Try the Mojito served in a copper pineapple that’s big enough for two. New York City fans should order the Coney Island Express made with rum, fresh cold brew coffee, vanilla and Amaro Ciociaro. Best part? This drink is served in traditional New York City takeaway coffee cups. Good to know: The Dorsey will accept reservations for large parties but small groups can enjoy the scene without a reservation. The Dorsey can also host private parties. To book, guests should contact Casi Arnold ([email protected]).
