When it comes to luxury hotel rooms, there’s crazy and then there’s Las Vegas crazy.
Located right in the middle of one of the most unforgiving deserts in the U.S, and founded by a gangster half a century ago, Sin City is a mad town where nothing is ever too much. Or too expensive.
Las Vegas hotels often include a casino and are rebuilt, renamed and revamped every other week.
So we’ve put together a list of 10 of the most crazy expensive hotel rooms in Las Vegas right now.
10. Secret Suites at the Vdara ($1,500)
The Vdara is a 13-year-old all-suite condo-hotel for people who like to keep things simple, which is admittedly unusual in Las Vegas, because it is a non-gaming, non-smoking luxury hotel with a small mini market and a restaurant.
What it lacks in terms of attractions, it makes up for in comfort, partly because every room is a suite, and also because it has one of the best SPAs in Las Vegas and 40,000 sq ft deck area and pool.
The ‘Secret Suites at Vdara’ are located on the top floor and you’ve got a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom option, starting from around $1,500.
That’s the beauty of Las Vegas: this is basically an entry-level suite but it doesn’t feel entry-level at all, mainly because LV sets the bar high.
9. Premier Presidential Suite at the Waldorf Astoria ($2,500)
Formerly known as the Mandarin Oriental, the Waldorf Astoria was rebranded and revamped a few years ago and it now combines some the exotic design language of the old hotel with the modern, New York-esque vibe that comes with the Waldorf Astoria name.
The Premier Presidential is a three-bedroom suite with a private fitness area, a Tranquility Spa passport giving you full (and private) access to the spa. And the view is amazing.
8. Penthouse at the Venetian-Palazzo ($4,999.95)
The Venetian and the Palazzo are located at the far end of the Strip and even though the name clearly implies that the inspiration comes from Venice, the dedication and attention to detail is still shocking once you get there. Random example: there are water canals with gondolas outside the hotel… and inside on the first floor. It’s mind-blowing.
The Penthouse suite is the most expensive room available, coming in with four TVs (including one in the bathroom) and a living room with a piano.
And the price? Starting from $4,999.95
7. Three-bedroom duplex at the Encore ($5,000)
The Encore is a slightly smaller albeit more expensive boutique version of the Wynn, which is situated right in front of it and named after real estate mogul Steve Wynn.
The first thing you notice is the incredibly high ceiling on the ground floor, you could easily fit a 2-story condo in it and you’d still have room left.
The 3-bedroom, 5,829-square-foot suite can accommodate up to eight people and it features a billiard room, a workout room and even a butler’s pantry. Pricing varies depending on several factors including availability, but get ready for a bill in excess of $5,000 for a one-night stay.
But hey, at least you get a $200 breakfast credit.
6. Chairman’s Suite at the Bellagio ($7,000)
The Bellagio is one of Las Vegas’ most iconic postcard pictures with its Mediterranean style and the spectacular fountain water show, immortalised in the 2001 Hollywood film Ocean’s Eleven, starring Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Andy Garcia and Julia Roberts.
The Chairman’s Suite is accessible via a suspended walkway, which makes you feel like you’re walking on thin air.
It gives you access to a solarium, an indoor garden and fountain, a fireplace, your own bar with your own butler and the obligatory conference room where you can crunch the numbers – 4,000 square feet, and a $7,000 bill.
5. Sky Suites Villa at the Aria ($7,500)
The Aria is located right in front of the Vdara, almost like a mirror image, but it is more expensive and crucially, it is a gaming hotel with its own casino floor.
The high roller suites are located on the top floor, as you’d expect, including the 7,000 sq ft, three-bedroom Sky Suites Villa, which offers a private beauty salon, a fitness center and of course a full kitchen and bar.
It costs around $7,500 per night, but for that money you also get a 24-hour butler service and… Hèrmes toiletries and beauty products.
4. Bentel & Bentel Suite at the Cosmopolitan ($25,000)
The Cosmopolitan opened its doors to the public in 2010, which means it would be considered a brand-new hotel in any other city but this is Las Vegas, and staying in business for 12 years with the same name and in the same building is actually not that common.
It’s located right in the middle of the Strip and it is one of the high-risers of Vegas (603 ft / 184 mt), and yet despite this it is often overlooked, especially by tourists.
There are over 3,000 rooms, one of which is the Bentel & Bentel: a 4,395 sq ft penthouse suite designed by NYC firm Bentel & Bentel and inspired by Hollywood.
It even has its own private movie theatre, for ‘just’ $25,000 per night.
3. Hardwood Suite at the Palms ($25,000)
The Palms is located a few miles from the Strip but it is still one of Las Vegas’ most symbolic landmarks. It has an amazing rooftop bar on the 55th floor called ‘Ghostbar’ and a few interesting suites, including the Hardwood Suite.
It’s massive – over 10,000 sq ft – and it comes with its own private butler and a private jacuzzi and, crucially, it has also a half-sized regulation basketball court with a locker room and scoreboard.
Circa $25,000 per night.
2. Nobu Villa at the Caesar’s Palace ($35,000)
The Caesar’s Palace is arguably the most famous hotel and casino resort in Las Vegas. It always was but then the 2009 Hollywood flick The Hangover (Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Mike Tyson) made sure we’d never forget.
It’s huge, you can walk for hours and get lost with over 160 shops and a couple dozen restaurants.
Interestingly, the most expensive suite at the Caesar’s is called the Nobu Villa and it has nothing to do with Rome or Italy as it draws its inspiration from Japan.
It’s a massive 10,300-square-foot open-space, with your very own rooftop patio, a full bar, a BBQ pit, a zen garden and a fireplace. And it’s all yours for a cool $35,000 a night.
1. The Empathy Suite at the Palms ($100,000)
You could compile a 10-point list with the most expensive rooms in Las Vegas and easily get to number 6 or 7 before you run out of options using the Palms Resort & Casino alone.
But the two-story Empathy Suite takes the cake.
A design-focused space with crazy artwork, a terrace and a private pool. You’ve probably seen it before because it’s been featured in several movie scenes and rap music videos.
It’s wild and wildly expensive, because it costs around $100,000 per night.
And you can’t book it for just one night either, it has a minimum stay of two nights.
So if you’ve got a spare $200,000 lying around, this is one for the bucket list.
