    Unlike many of the hotels on this list (basically all of them), the Four Seasons doesn’t feature an adjacent casino or game room. Instead, this hotel focuses on the restaurant, spa, cocktail, and sleep experience, climaxing with its $3,000 room, the Presidential Strip-View Suite.

    This room gives you a view of the casinos on the strip without having to partake in them. Meanwhile, you’ll be dining in 5-star luxury at the Veranda, or sampling world-famous cocktails, or using the luxury pool, fitness center, and the Forbes Five Star Spa, which includes steam rooms, facials, and saunas. Staying at the Four Seasons also gives you exclusive access to shows and restaurants on the strip.

    The Cosmopolitan’s most expensive suites are known as the Bentel & Bentel Suites, which cost $25,000 per night. Unlike many Vegas resorts, which portray antique styles from Italy or Japan to create a sense of luxury, The Cosmopolitan is true to its own style, presented in a contemporary artistic vibe. The architects Bentel & Bentel designed the resort’s most luxurious suites.

    Even if you don’t stay in the most expensive suite on-site, you can still enjoy the resort’s high-end eateries, casino, salon, spa, and more. Uniquely, the hotel also includes hammam bathing facilities, which are relaxing steam baths more commonly associated with Islamic culture.

    The Venetian Resort is one of Vegas’s many Italy-themed accommodations. But in this case, rather than Ancient Rome, the Venetian takes after Venice, Italy’s city of love (and canals). To authenticate the inspiration, the Venetian Resort features actual gondolas to take you on a tour of the hotel in its artificial waterways.

    The real attractions are the rooms in the Venetian and Palazzo Towers, which are elegant, opulent experiences that cost $25,000 per night. Shoppers flock to the Venetian for its Grand Canal Shoppes, basically a private shopping district where patrons can partake of luxury Italian merchandise to their heart’s content.

    Did you know?

    The Venetian already includes the Palazzo and Sands Expo and is currently expanding to include the MSG Sphere. With 4,049 rooms and 120,000 total sq. ft. of casino space, The Venetian in Las Vegas is the second-largest hotel in the world, beaten only by The Venetian Resort in Macao.

    Caesars Palace is arguably the most recognizable Vegas hotel, partly because it’s one of the oldest. The resort is designed in the style of Ancient Rome, which was known for a lot of things, including glorious excess. Caesars Palace includes one of Vegas’ most hopping casinos, restaurants owned by such famous chefs as Bobby Flay and Gordon Ramsay, and the Omnia nightclub, which has DJ Steve Aoki on retainer.

    The Nobu Hotel is actually a part of the Caesars Palace resort brand but with the exclusivity and luxury ratcheted up another notch.
