For those planning a trip to Las Vegas but looking to avoid the noise and crowds of the large casino resorts, you can do no better than the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. This ultra-luxury resort offers all of the premium amenities and world-class service guests have come to expect from the Four Seasons brand just minutes from all the excitement, dining, shopping and entertainment of Vegas. Consider it the best of both worlds.
Located adjacent to the Mandalay Bay resort on the Las Vegas Strip, the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas offers 424 premium guest rooms (including 81 suites), a Forbes Five-Star Spa, an elevated dining and mixology at Veranda restaurant and PRESS lounge, and a level of overall excellence that is unmatched by most Vegas resorts. Everything about the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is exceptional, from the décor to the amenities to the incredible staff. This is as good as it gets.
The biggest thing you notice when staying at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is how removed you feel from the noise, crowds and odors of most hotels in Las Vegas. As you pull up to the grand yet secluded entrance to the resort, you are engulfed in palm trees and instantly feel as though you could be arriving at a Four Seasons anywhere in the world. Walking into the lobby, you are struck by the elegant-but-not-gaudy décor and how intimate the property feels. It truly feels like a private resort, tucked away from the hubbub of Vegas.
One of the most striking features of the resort is all of the wonderful modern art on display throughout. The centerpiece of the lobby is the Four Seasons Tree. Designed by renowned Toronto-based artist Ken Gangbar, this 18-ft.-tall abstract creation bridges the gap between natural and industrial and consists of 42 dark metal rods attached to a chamfered-edge raised base, giving the appearance it rises out of the floor.
Another now-famous piece at the resort is the unofficial mascot of the hotel: a striking poodle sculpture designed by Herb Williams entitled Knight. Composed entirely of crayons, this piece located by the guest elevators is a definite photo opp for guests. The same can be said of Desert Breeze, a work consisting of nearly 500 florals, petals and leaves that watch over the property’s grand stairwell.
As you can imagine, the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas staff go out of their way to make you feel special and reinforce the idea that this property is both intimate and exclusive. Whether you need tickets to a show or reservations or a ride in the house car to somewhere on the Strip, they are eager to accommodate. And suppose you feel the urge to quickly escape the tranquil seclusion of the resort for some gaming, there is a discrete private entrance into the Mandalay Bay casino that can only be accessed by Four Seasons guests — a lovely little touch.
Rooms are everything one has come to expect from the Four Seasons name. Lavishly appointed and elegantly furnished, every room in the hotel is a wonderfully private escape. Many rooms offer views of the Strip and a whole host of fine amenities. Bathrooms are spacious and — as with all Four Seasons hotels — the beds are among the most comfortable of any hotel in the world.
The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas pool is a beautiful, palm tree-laden escape with a spectacular cascading waterfall and a modern art sculpture at its center. Despite its proximity to the nearby Mandalay Bay pool (which guests have access to if they desire), the pool at the Four Seasons feels completely isolated and tranquil, allowing you to blissfully relax and soak up all of its first-class ambiance. We recommend securing a cabana for some additional privacy and shaded comfort; each comes stocked with fresh fruit, water and soft drinks to stay cool.
To further your top-tier experience, the Forbes Five-Star Spa at the resort is an idyllic place to unwind and rejuvenate. This beautiful, world-class spa offers a vast assortment of advanced restorative treatments delivered by their best-in-town staff. Treatments range from traditional massages to LED light therapy facials, soothing sun wraps, hyaluronic acid facials and more. In addition, there is a fitness center, nail bar and a host of specially designed body and nail treatments for men.
Guests in the mood for libations must be sure to stop by PRESS, the hotel’s centerpiece indoor/outdoor lounge and coffee bar. Enjoy fine craft cocktails from some of the most seasoned mixologists in town alongside delectable bites like antipasto and fritto misto. Each Thursday through October, PRESS will feature a rotating roster of musicians and select wines and spirits to further liven the upscale lounge experience.
For those looking for a truly memorable evening, we recommend the Bartender’s Table Experience. This newly launched interactive class is a unique one- to two-hour deep dive through the history of your favorite spirit (complete with several different tastings). At the hands of your skilled PRESS mixologist, learn the origins and complexities of your spirit before having your very own cocktail created in your honor.
For fine dining on property, Veranda serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in an elegant setting complete with floor-to-ceiling windows and a poolside terrace. This restaurant offers a delightful combination of Italian pastas like mushroom tagliatelle alongside prime steaks and other Modern American dishes. Guests can also reserve a unique afternoon tea experience each Saturday featuring a selection of sweet and savory delights alongside a selection of organic teas curated by Executive Chef Michael Goodman.
