Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas
What We Love
- The New Press lobby lounge and wine bar is one of the few places in Vegas where you can eat outside—under misters and umbrellas, of course
- Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil is one of the hottest tickets in town
What To Know
- As the southernmost hotel on the Strip, the Four Seasons is a long way from many of the most popular casinos, restaurants and shows
- The new nonsmoking status might frustrate puffers
- The private connection from Mandalay Bay back into the Four Seasons can be hard to find and requires a room key; forget yours and you face a long walk outside
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
A $30 million renovation has brought in a contemporary Art Deco look and feel, with rooms positively gleaming with towering mirrors, geometric metallic wallpaper, chrome cocktail tables and silky headboards. Room classes vary by view, with a premium one overlooking the Strip, followed by the pool complex. The building is cunningly designed so the Four Seasons has a separate entrance with a porte cochere, standalone lobby and private pool all built onto the exterior of Mandalay Bay; elevators and guest rooms are within the actual Mandalay Bay building with a direct connection onto the casino floor only for Four Seasons guests. Rooms feature the signature Four Seasons bathrooms, large and made of marble, with separate soaking tubs and walk-in showers, Etro toiletries and in-mirror TVs. All mattresses and linens are high-end and brand new, and standard amenities include thick Frette robes, comfortable slippers and turn-down service with free shoeshines. For many guests the lushly landscaped private pool, with staff distributing fresh fruit, Evian spritzes and chilled water, is attraction enough. But you also have access to the adjacent Mandalay Bay pool complex, which has a lazy river, 2,700 tons of real sand, a 1.6 million–gallon wave pool and a tops-optional adult party area. Get in on the action, and then retreat back to the serenity of the Four Seasons Spa. You won’t go hungry with the Italian fare at Verandah, small plates at the Pool Bar and nouveau steakhouse fare at Charlie Palmer, and more than two dozen restaurants next door at Mandalay, with a laundry list of celeb chefs (Michael Mina, Wolfgang Puck, Rick Moonen, Hubert Keller, and more).
In the Area
Old Downtown Las Vegas is currently experiencing a big renaissance and is worth a visit, especially for the new can’t-miss Neon Museum and the entertaining Mob Museum. There’s also a new state-of-the-art Children’s Museum for families, all close to each other. One of the city’s less heralded but still standout attractions is Shark Reef, a full aquarium with a focus on predators, right in Mandalay Bay and another top family attraction. As part of the MGM resorts family, the Four Seasons offers guests access to MGM’s otherwise private Shadow Creek Golf Club, the only course in Vegas ranked in the nation’s top 10 and a fantastic luxury golf experience.
How to Get There
You usually expect above average service at premium hotels. My early arrival provided that my room was not available. I checked my luggage and went to my event. I got a text message that my room was available. After I replied that I would not be returning for 3 hours I got a phone call from the manager on duty telling me that they sent my luggage to my room and to stop by and pick up a key at my convenience. Nice touch!
The Four Seasons Las Vegas is located within the grounds of the Mandalay Bay hotel. This can be both a good thing and, a not so great thing, depending on your preferences.
The good thing is that the Four Seasons offers you all of the luxury and services of a true high end hotel. The "not so good" part is that, due to sharing the grounds with the Mandalay Bay hotel, it lacks a bit of the exclusive feel that you would normally find at a Four Seasons hotel. On the other hand, it does have it's own quieter grounds, while still offering access to the big casino type resort, so it really depends on what you're looking for in that sense.
The Four Seasons private pool area is rather small, although not at all lacking in services. The pool area at the Mandalay, which is accessible to guests staying at the Four Seasons, is huge, but also very crowded, as is the hotel, in general. All in all we had a wonderful experience at the Four Seasons Las Vegas. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. Great staff.
We visited the Four Seasons this week and had the most amazing stay.
Upon check in they had left Teddies and kids toiletries for our children. The rooms and grounds are immaculate. Access to Mandalay Bay lazy river and wave pool was an extra bonus to keep our boys entertained.
There is no casino in the resort which means it is smoke free. We visited all the other hotels on the strip and were always relieved to return to the family friendly Four seasons.
Best of all is the amazing service that we received from everyone in the resort. It was world class. Some of the little touches in our room were fabulous.
Thank you four seasons.
