Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas
Luxury hotel in sea of luxury hotels
If you mention the name Four Seasons in just about any major city in the world, you're going to be referring to one of the most luxurious places in the city. If you mention the name Four Seasons in Las Vegas, people are going to wonder if such a place even exists. In a city that has more 4 star and 5 diamond hotels than any place on Earth, Four Seasons can get lost amid the Wynn, the Venetian, and the Bellagio, among others.
I'm here to tell everyone that the Four Seasons is a great place to stay in Las Vegas, especially if you want to avoid some of the family unfriendly attractions like scantily clad women in the lobby and 24-hour gambling and would prefer to just check out some of Las Vegas' great shopping malls.
Location, rooms, and rates
Four Seasons is located on 3960 Las Vegas Boulevard South, which is also known as The Las Vegas Strip. It's on the top 4 floors of the main Mandalay Bay building, which is next to Luxor (the big black pyramid). This is at the south end of the Strip, which makes it closer to McCarren Airport. It looks like a very short distance on a map, but I would still recommend getting a Las Vegas taxi or getting Limo service from McCarren, because you don't want to walk 2 miles in Las Vegas, especially off the Strip where you won't have easy access to drinks and air conditioning. Remember, although you might forget this when you're exploring the city on the street-level, you are in the middle of the desert.
The Four Seasons is one of the best rated hotels in Las Vegas. Out of over 600 reviews online, it averaged over 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Room rates range from about $180 to well over $300 a night. They even have deluxe suites for over $3,000 a night, if you really want to be a rock star.
The standard room is about 500 square feet and includes a large plasma screen TV (may be upgraded to LCD or LED by now). The bathroom is in marble and has a bathtub and a glass shower.
If you're not so into the whole gaming part of Las Vegas, the Four Seasons is an excellent option. Being at the bottom end of the Strip, it's easy to move around the Strip and avoid traffic. An alternative for those who do enjoy gaming would be The Venetian or Palazzo, which offer similar luxury but in a more central location.
