Located on the south end of the Las Vegas Strip, Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas may not be as eye-catching as some of the city’s casino-resorts - there’s no towering marquee or bright neon lights. But what it lacks in flash, it makes up for in substance.
Boasting some of the most luxurious accommodations guests will find on the Strip, the newly renovated rooms at the Four Seasons are located on floors 35 through 39 of the Mandalay Bay tower, offering sweeping views of the Strip and surrounding desert landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows.
Inspired by the vibrant Art Deco period, the spacious guest rooms feature such notable details as a multi-media hub on all televisions and convenience outlets in lamp bases to allow for easy charging of multiple personal media devices. Frameless showers and soaking tubs, marble flooring, sleek furnishings and metal hardware recall high-fashion from decades past.
Suites, meanwhile, include separate living rooms with sofa beds, formal dining rooms and backlit mirrors with integrated televisions in the bathroom.

Upon checking in, guests are greeted by some of the friendliest staff members in town and given a complimentary bottle of water that they can take up to their room. Fresh fruit is also available at the check-in desk, just in case anyone is hungry.
If an apple won’t cure your hunger pangs, the hotel’s new lobby bar PRESS is conveniently located by the check-in desk, providing guests with the perfect place to unwind after their travels and refuel with a quick bite to eat. This indoor/outdoor lounge, which opened in April 2013, features an innovative food and beverage menu.
Delicious small plates include crab cake sliders with an arugula fennel salad and black garlic aioli, as well as more hearty options like the succulent eight-ounce PRESS Burger. It's topped with sharp cheddar cheese and applewood smoked bacon and served with a side of fries.
For even larger appetites, the Four Seasons houses two of the best restaurants on the Strip: Charlie Palmer Steak and Verandah. The latter is known for its delightful weekend breakfast buffet, featuring fresh-made mini donuts.
If the weather’s nice, be sure to dine on Verandah’s outdoor garden terrace, offering views of the hotel’s lushly landscaped private pool. Although the pool may only be open seasonally, guests of the Four Seasons are welcome to use Mandalay Bay’s Moorea Pool during cooler months.
In addition to facials and other soothing services, The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel now offers nail treatments — Photo courtesy of Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas
The Four Seasons is also home to one of the Strip’s most soothing spas. In fact, The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas expanded its menu of services in August 2013 and now offers nail services. Other treatments available include massages, facials, body treatments, waxing and body bronzing.
While one of the unique aspects about staying at the Four Seasons is that it’s a non-gaming property, those who want to test their hand at a game of blackjack are only steps away from Mandalay Bay’s casino - as well as all of its other attractions.
Recent additions to that property include one of the hottest new nightclubs on the Strip - LIGHT - and Cirque du Soleil’s stunning new show, Michael Jackson ONE. If you plan on checking out the production, be sure to stop by Charlie Palmer Steak before the show to feast upon its three-course Tribute to Michael Jackson prix fixe menu. This menu features such mouthwatering entrée selections as the pastrami-flavored salmon and charred bone-in filet mignon for only $49 per person. That includes wine pairings!
With so much to experience under one roof, it’s no wonder the secret is getting out about about one of Las Vegas’ last remaining hidden gems.
