Las Vegas is a world-renowned party hot spot. Whether you drink or gamble, enjoy lavish production shows or spend your days shopping, Las Vegas is sure to offer something for you. Las Vegas is a terrific choice for bachelor parties, girls-only getaways and even family vacations, but finding a room that sleeps more than four can be a challenge. All-suite hotels are the best alternative.
Marriott Grand Chateau
The Marriott Grand Chateau is two blocks from the Las Vegas Strip. Designed for long-term occupancy, the Grand Chateau also offers nightly rates on a space-available basis. Hotel amenities include free high-speed Internet, a concierge desk, a fitness center and a heated pool. Two-bedroom villas sleep six, while three-bedrooms sleep up to 10. Villas provide separate living, dining and sleeping areas and fully equipped kitchens. Most villas offer 42-inch plasma TVs and DVD players. Daily housekeeping service is provided.
Wyndham Grand Desert
Located four miles from the convention center and three miles from the airport, the Wyndham Grand Desert provides complimentary shuttle service to the Las Vegas Strip. Two-bedroom suites comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. All suites have fully equipped kitchens, semi-formal dining rooms and living rooms with sleeper sofas. Flat-screen TVs and laundry facilities are provided in each unit. Hotel amenities include three heated pools, four hot tubs, a fitness center, a fire pit area and a full schedule of daily activities for both adults and children. Daily housekeeping service is available for an additional charge. Wireless Internet access is provided for a daily fee.
Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
Although pricey ($1,499 per night in 2010), the three-bedroom penthouse suite at the Trump International Hotel provides the ultimate deluxe experience on the Strip. At more than 3,000 square feet, each suite includes a kitchen with high-end appliances, a formal dining room that seats eight, separate guest and butler entrances, a master bathroom with his and hers sides and an in-mirror plasma TV, two Italian marble guest bathrooms and a library with seating for eight. Hotel amenities include personal shopping and concierge services, a pool with semi-private cabanas and chair-side hors d’oeuvre service, and a full-service spa. There are two restaurants on site and room service is available.
Prices in Vegas change by the day, and coupon codes are abundant on the Internet. If you are a gambler, special poker rates can bring a high-roller suite to a more modest price point. However, deals also abound at less-expensive hotels, including some on the Strip. Depending on your travel dates, two rooms at a lower-cost hotel might be less pricey than a single suite. If you are conserving money, comparison shop to decide whether one large room or two smaller rooms are the best option for your travel dates.
