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
- 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
We had a three night stay and really liked the nonsmoking, nongaming environment. This hotel is made up of floors 35-39 in Mandalay Bay but with a completely separate entrance and pool (you have access to the Mandalay Bay pools if you’d like, but those guests do not have reciprocal access). You can also access the Mandalay Bay casino easily through a specific level of the Four Seasons hotel.
We enjoyed the hotel bar nightly, and had a breakfast bagel and tea each morning from that same bar. A Charlie Palmer Steak House is located on the entry level and our dinner there was excellent.
We loved our room, and the high level of service. When we come back to Las Vegas, we’ll definitely stay here.
Note: there is a house car that will drop you off along the strip (they will not pick you up) and it’s strictly first come first served.
We've stayed at the Four Seasons Las Vegas four times within the last year, why? Because it is the ideal blending of a Las Vegas get-away spot (located on the southern end of the Strip) yet is an oasis unto itself, one can enjoy all the action and excitement of the Strip, then come "home" to a quite, welcoming, and perfect room to unwind and relax.
My wife loves the pool, it is not the Las Vegas pool party found at other resorts -- although by walking through a gate one can get that at Moorea Beach Club, Daylight Beach Club, or the other pools at Mandalay Bay -- it is an upscale tranquil pool with some of the best service we've found anywhere. Attendants know you by name within the first few interactions, they notice when your ice water is low - and refill it, they notice when you might be low on the adult beverage of choice, and stop by regularly, although not in a intrusive way, to ensure all your needs are cared for. The frozen fruit pops are treat during the heat of summer too.
The room is always exceptionally maintained, we've joked about being able to take a shower leaving the towel on the floor and then walking back into the bathroom to find a fresh one five minutes later. Well not exactly that, but close, the room is fully serviced multiple times a day, curtains are drawn in the evening, towels are replaced after a late afternoon shower, and beds are turned down. All the while one never sees any housekeeping staff at work, no carts in the hall ever.
The brunch on Sunday morning is the best in Vegas, and one never knows who they might be seated next to, on our last stay Wayne Newton "Mr. Las Vegas" was at the table next to ours, on the stay prior Cincinnati Reds "Home Run King" Pete Rose was next to us. The service is great, the food is outstanding, and semi-pool location, and somewhat "who's who" effect combine for a one of kind brunch experience.
Subdued and quiet luxury adjacent to the craziness of Las Vegas. It is actually the top floors of the Mandalay Bay but has separate entrances and exits so you can avoid the crowds - but share all the pool amenities!
We arrived quite early, but were not able to get into our rooms until many hours later. Dana at the front dest, was very helpful . There was a mix up with our rooms , but this was straightened out. We had asked for a strip room and it seemed this was not available. So, our room faced the sun all day. At the pool, the service was wonderful, as always. We had lunch at Veranda and the service was also good.We also enjoyed breakfast. My big complaint was that our room was unreasonably hot. An engineer came up and said this happens, because it is too hot and the air conditioning can't handle it However,we were coming from Zion, where it was equally hot and where the air conditioning worked very well.the rooms could use a bit of freshening up . Where the Four Seasons excels is in the service they provide. Almost perfect.
Always extremely pleased when staying at a Four Seasons! From the staff attention to details to the drinks by the pool and to the food at Breakfast, lunch and dinner. They were great at setting up rollaway and turn down service was done on time.
