Goodbye gimmicks, hello pampering, at this sophisticated casino-free hotel.
In 1999, Four Seasons took a gamble and opened the only non-gaming hotel on the Strip, occupying the top four floors of Mandalay Bay and offering its guests privileges at the larger resort. Given the white-glove service and understated elegant rooms and suites, it's hard to believe that the hotel is in the same complex as the dynamic Mandalay Bay. Only a private entrance and quiet vestibule separate one hotel from the other --- but oh what a difference that vestibule makes. In this haven, guests are greeted by a serene lobby lounge. Inspired by the Art Deco movement, the 338 guest rooms and 86 suites feature plush bathrobes, children's amenities and plasma TVs with DVD players. Dining includes the lovely Veranda and Charlie Palmer Steak. As well, the lobby is home to PRESS, serving coffee and pastries, and a full bar offering craft cocktails and small plates. The meeting and function center hosts many prestigious events, including parties and weddings of the valley's movers and shakers. Guests can lounge all day in a private cabana by a tranquil private pool, or renew at the spa, featuring signature treatments ideal for the desert climate.
