The theme of the Four Seasons Hotel is: Escape from Vegas.
Adjacent to Mandalay Bay, the Four Seasons is a serene hiatus from the endless noise of slot machines and roulette wheels. There are no casinos here, which is a welcome relief when you’re hungover. With only 424 rooms, this hotel specialises in ultra-luxurious pampering.
The utterly tasteful rooms, which are located on the 35th to 39th floors of the Mandalay Bay tower and accessed by private lifts, all offer gorgeous views of the mountainous desert landscape. The basics include down duvets, deep soaking tubs, high-speed Internet access, a complete entertainment system, mini-bar, hairdryers, giant cotton towels, morning coffee, and the daily paper — you may not want to leave the room!
Among the exquisite guest services are hand-delivered telephone messages, 24-hour laundry and twice-daily housekeeping. Afternoon tea is served daily in the lounge. Very civilised. The hotel also has a full-service spa for guests only— no slobs off the street allowed — a very large pool and a health club where an ever-so-polite attendant hands you a chilled towel and icy spring water after your workout. Guests are also welcome to sun themselves at Mandalay Beach.
If you can afford it, this is the life.
