    Okay, so, I've got a group of three European friends who are completely mystified by the concept of Las Vegas and all the stories I've told them about the place (where they're from, Las Vegas is a place you see in the movies and talk about as a "one day if I win the lottery" sort of thing... those who actually make it there are near royalty). We've basically decided the four of us are going to go this summer (ideally July, but could be another month) for four, maybe five days, relatively flexible as to what days of the week.

    I'm seeking hotel/suite recommendations that fit the following criteria...
    - Can comfortably sleep four people - either by way of having the necessary room in the suite, or by being two adjoining suites. The best would be having at least one private bedroom.
    - Has a nice view of some kind (fountains, strip, mountains, the point is for the view to be interesting)
    - Décor needs to be on point... this is more them than me - I say this because about 500 photos will be taken in the room alone just to show everyone back home that "this is what Vegas is like!"
    - Some really outrageous feature would be ideal, such as a pool table
    - Property should have a very lively pool area
    - Needs to be on the strip
    - Willing to pay up to $1,000 USD per night

    I've looked around on the websites of Cosmo/Aria/Bellagio, etc. and I see some that look okay, it's just that they're not terribly forthcoming with pictures, so I feel like this could end up getting booked but totally underwhelming.

    If anyone has suggestions for what might fit this bill, please let me know.

    What used to be the Mandalay X3 suite (no idea what it's called now) is your best bet. Three beds (1 King, 2 Queen) plus a couch that someone can sleep on. The one I was in has a view of the strip facing north, and the view is outright beautiful. They also just did a major remodeling/refurnishing of all the rooms (and the bedding's now at Excalibur!), so they should fit your decor criterion.

    MGM -- SkyLofts are probably out of your price range. Skyline Terrace suite only has one bed (so you'd need an adjoining room) and in any event, those are really hard to get. (Unless you are super high roller, you'd need to reserve it to Luxury Reservations, and you'd be paying sticker.) Skyline Marquee has two bedrooms (one bed each), great view of the strip if you're up high enough. Marquee suites also have a pool table, but only the suites that face the airport. (You get a pool table in exchange for your bad view.)

    Elara is also an option, especially with a realistic budget in mind of the $1000/night.

    I stayed in the Mirage suites and those were nice, and they offer a two bedroom option, but without dates I have no idea if it falls in your budget.

    If you are looking for more pictures, Oyster.com seems to have it covered and you can pick based on room type.

    CET has all of theirs at https://www.caesars.com/anthology-suites. If you don't mind getting the nicest room in a lesser quality property, the Metropolitan suite at the Flamingo has 2 bedrooms, with a king in one and 2 queens in another. Looks to run about $400-600/night.

    This is one I think I would like to share with a few friends myself... Delano has a 2 bedroom/2.5 bath suite with 3 beds along with a fold out couch so everyone could have their own bed... though sleeping on a fold out couch may not feel very Vegasy...

    I'm not sure about the view, but Delano/Mandalay Bay has one of the better pool areas on the Strip. Not to mention I'm seeing it come up about $500 per night several nights for the coming months.

    Believe it or not, $1000 does not get you the fabulous suite you might expect. I would consider the Apex suite at Planet Hollywood... https://www.caesars.com/anthology-suites/planet-hollywood This is a nice large suite, with a view, and 1-2 games such as air hockey or pool table. A bit outdated, but gives that WOW feeling. Large blah pool, but it is lively.There is an adjoining room.

    2nd choice would be a wrap around terrace suite w/fountain view....https://www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com/accommodation/wraparound-terrace-suite Great site with those added refined touches you are looking for. Great views. Once again, you would need an adjoining room. Small but lively pool.

    Both of these are great for fun party hotels.

    Finally, I would consider this room at Aria.... https://www.aria.com/en/hotel/executive-hospitality-suite.html You dont see too many people commenting on this room. It's large, picture window for 50 ft, conference room for drinking games, and a nice bar. The rate is usually very reasonable for what you get. Aria has the best pool of the three, but less lively.

    I would suggest the Cosmopolitan 2 bedroom City Suite https://www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com/accommodation/two-bedroom-city-suite . It has 2 bedrooms (One with a King bed and one with 2 Queens beds) and 2 full bathrooms (might be a half bath there as well) . There isn't a terrace for this suite, but you are able to see the Bellagio fountains/strip from some areas in the suite. Here is a video tour of the suite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvVRA1Ziovc . You can also do a Wraparound Terrace suite, but there is only 1 bedroom and no pull out couch in the living room. I know you can get a rollaway bed for an additional fee. Another option would be to get a Wraparound and a connecting 1 bedroom suite

    In regards to the pools, the Cosmo actually has 3 pools: Bamboo (the quiet pool-more for families/children), Blvd (the active pool that is quite large and very scenic since it overlooks the strip). There are plenty of cabanas, daybeds, and lounge chairs at Blvd pool. The lounge chairs are free and first come, first served. The 3rd pool is at Marquee Dayclub. This is the party-party scene. Bamboo is in the West Tower while Blvd and Marquee is in the East Tower.

    The 2 bedroom City suite at the Cosmo has 2 full baths (maybe a half bath as well), 2 bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with 2 queen beds) and a full/separate living area. There isn't a terrace, but you have some fountain views from some areas of the suite

    depending on current play to give a cheaper price on top of play while there, nobu has some suites with pool tables ect and nice strip views starting around $1,000 for non players, those come with round trip limo transportation also...any decent play and that price can come down

    I like this suggestion. The pool complex at MB is fantastic. I also suggest looking into the Delano Penthouse Superior Suite, with an adjoining 2Q room.

    https://www.delanolasvegas.com/en/hotel/penthouse-superior-suite.html

    Some other posters also suggested the wrap-around at Cosmo. One thing to keep in mind is that you don't necessarily have to all pile into the same room. Two can stay in the wrap-around, and two others in a connector or room down the hall. The wrap-around can be the "home base".
    Can someone here confirm if the 2-BR penthouse at Bellagio can also connect to a third 2Q room?

    Vdara has some 2BR suites that may fit the bill - you'll be centrally located with quick access to Bellagio, Aria, and Cosmopolitan. The pool area will be smaller and more quiet, however (but I believe you can access Aria's pool).

    https://www.vdara.com/en/hotel/two-bedroom-loft.html
    https://www.vdara.com/en/hotel/two-bedroom-hospitality-suite.html
    https://www.vdara.com/en/hotel/two-bedroom-penthouse.html


    Sooooo.... out of all of those options, I would vote for either 1) wraparound + separate room at Cosmo, or 2) a suite or just a couple of 2Q lakeview rooms in the main tower at Bellagio.

    If you can swing it, the Bellagio Presidential suite you can get 2 queens and a king, though those are a bit pricey but very nice. I've stayed in the Apex suite at Planet Hollywood, and did not like it unless you can get some connectors. Even then, it feels old. As someone else said even $1,000 a night may not be enough for some of these rooms. What I would recommend is getting a suite with a queen connector as it would significantly bring the cost down, while still getting you more beds.

    I've never spent much time looking at the planet hollywood rooms (mostly because the ones I glanced at seemed overpriced for what they are - I realize the location is prime, but still didn't think they were worth it) BUT -

    The Panorama suite 1,255 sqft and 180-degree view of the Strip - Those rooms look awesome!

    I would echo some previous comments... Cosmo Wrap Around Suite w/ fountain view sounds like it would work.

    I just stayed there last weekend and it was amazing - more than enough hangout space for 4 people if you add an adjoining room. Terrace is massive and has an excellent view.

    Not sure on the price but I think it is around $750 a night for the suite... perhaps $250 to add on the adjoining room.

    Suites are almost always a single king bed. Add an adjoining room that is often a queen with two beds.

    Some suites do not have a separate room for bedroom... just a big room.

    Depending on day of week, suite prices can get crazy. If you look at the monthly calendar for most properties, you can see a basic room fro fro $69 to $500+ in the same month.

    I stayed in the Bally's suite's before and they were huge. Only one bed tho (maybe you can get two), but the room is like 1300sqft plus. The casino is old but fun.

    I've never stayed at CP but that screams Las Vegas.

    I know this doesn't perfectly fit the bill, but Marriott Gran Chateau is only 450 a night on a given weekend in July for three bedrooms, one of which has two queen beds. Not ideal but also massive savings, so the whole THIS IS VEGAS thing can come from aspects of the trip other than the room, which really just needs to be a crash pad, anyway.

    I just booked a panoramic suite at MB for 180.00 a night Sunday thru Thursday. I haven't been to Vegas in 10 years but I thought that was a great deal.
