The most expensive Las Vegas hotel rooms
Talking of Las Vegas instantly brings to mind the glittering city streets, non-stop entertainment, luxury shopping centers, restaurants serving only the most elite diners, top-of-the-line hotels and of course, the casinos. The city that never sleeps really needs no introduction. For the high-end travelers or the clientele who have no set bars to splash the cash, Las Vegas has it all. You don’t call it paradise for no reason, Las Vegas has a reputation of turning fantasy into reality. With so many options to choose from, you would still want to be in the middle of everything but choosing the best in Las Vegas can be tricky.
Las Vegas is without a doubt a spectacular sight and while there is more to do than you can possibly fit in one stay, one has to settle for something. For this reason, we will put the available information to the best use to make it a lot easier in deciding which hotel suits your taste and budget.
1. Hugh Hefner Sky Villa
On top of the list is the most expensive suite on the Strip with a glass elevator to the second floor, an infinity pool – with the Playboy logo on the bottom (the iconic bunny is everywhere), a rotating bed with mirrors on the ceiling. There’s also an indoor waterfall, a massage room, screening room, private gym, an eight-person hot tub and a sauna. Hefner, of course, stays free but you need to shed $40,000 to make like Hefner for a night.
