    Take a leg and arm. We've used Marriott points. Several of our stays came years ago when the place was really suffering and rack was rather cheap.

    1. Executive Hospitality Suite at Aria. 2,000 SF
    2. Terrace Suite at Cosmo, before they remodeled them
    3. Corner Suite City View at Aria
    4. 1050 Skyview at MB
    5. Scenic Suite at Delano
    6. Siena Suite at Palazzo. This should have clocked in at #2 or #3, but I got a low floor (no view), and a version with a not-preferable layout. But it was only $100/night more than a regular room at the time (2010-ish)
    7. Masquerade Suite at Rio. I had a low floor and it rained the whole time. Did like watching the trains though, lol.
    8. An unrenovated (still themed) one bedroom suite on one of the top floors in the pyramid at Luxor
    I wanna get a Skyview Terrace at MGM Grand or one of the Aria Penthouses some time.

    Didn‘t even know there was a difference in Grand or not. Thanks for that clarification!

    The biggest I have ever stayed in would be a 1 bedroom suite at Mirage. Along with a separate bedroom, there was a living room area, kitchen, even dining table. However, my favorite is the Cosmo Terrace - even though it was only a studio. That Terrace just trumps everything. Would like to try the 1 Bedroom there next time.

    I don’t recall the name of it but it was in the Masquerade tower at Rio. I believe it was a floor or 2 below the Voodoo. It was ridiculous. I think there were only 6 rooms on that floor. I know it had a full bar, big hot tub, and a steam shower along with other things you get in a suite. We had a comp stay mid week and asked if there were upgrades and this was what the front desk gave us (no sandwich either). We were diamond so maybe that had something to do with it?

    The floor difference between the Lakeview and Grand Lakeview is one of the many differences. The most important is size. 1 Bedroom Lakeviews are approx 2,000 sq/ft. 2 Bedrooms are approx 2,600 sq/ft. There are only 2 Bedroom Grand Lakeviews and they are 3,000 sq/ft. They have higher ceilings, and a general better level of decor, as they are the premier suite product at Bellagio after the Villas, and the Chairman and Presidential Suites. A 2 Bedroom Skyloft is roughly the same price as one, excepting a very good deal. Also easier to book on a weekend as there are far fewer GL Suites.

    I've scored "Suites In Low Places" !
    Does Rio count as a suite ?......I loved it, however.
    Fremont gave me a suite as MSS was overbooked.....I laughed " This is a suite ?"....
    Stratosphere - several different suites.......loved them all.......CHEAP !...for a lot of room !
    Tropicana - okay....this was the MOST INTERESTING upgrade....antique furniture...I was DEFINITELY transported
    into a long ago VEGAS time.....everything was antique and in wonderful condition !
    I thought Frank Sinatra and the boys would be playing downstairs ?.....but older than the 50's - 60's
    Most unique furnishings I've ever seen in Vegas !....I loved it.

    I got a sweet upgrade deal a couple years back on check in at Cosmo for a Terrace One Bedroom Fountain View, and it was killer. Big sitting area, wet bar, the close-able door to the bedroom, and that fountain view from both the bedroom and shower/jacuzzi, it was amazeballs. Best room I've had in Vegas and probably in life. Since the renovation it's priced out of my range now, sadly.

    Just had the HRH Tower King Suite at Hard Rock on my last trip, for the money it has to be one of the better suites in town. Separate check in area, amazing bathroom, plenty of room to hang out w/friends and if you get the pool-facing rooms a nice strip view at night.

    My son stayed in the skyline terrace at MGM, and now must have a balcony all the time, he paid 800 for that room. Mine include the 1bed terrace at Cosmo, a 1 bed tower suite at Luxor, the suites at Monte Carlo that are 700 sq ft with 1.5 baths.

    I’m a sucker for high floor outdoor space- I couldn’t care less about the room if I’m boxed in glass in a 3500sqft villa at the Wynn or a single king room at the Flamingo. As such, the wraparound at Cosmo is by far my favorite. I’m dying to stay in a Skyline Terrace at some point.

    I liked the panoramic suites at the Encore the best, but I usually don't book luxury suites in Vegas unless they're comped. LOL I've seen room photos that other members have posted of suites at the Aria and Cosmo that really look nice, especial the balcony view at the Cosmo.

    I don't spend a lot of time in my room, so if I had to pay for them myself, it would be a waste of my bankroll that I could be using for gambling instead. Although in the past, I've had spa suites at the Luxor and the former Monte Carlo on a few occasions, as well as the executive suite at the Orleans.

    The best by far was the 2 bedroom Skyloft. and the second best was the Nobu penthouse, I'm not sure why we were upgraded to that cause we usually stay in the Hakone suite at Nobu, must have been a slow time.

    2 Story Spa Suite at Golden Nugget. Was there for 3 nights over July 4th last year. Had a comped Carson tower king booked, asked at check in if there were any complimentary updates available and she said yes, we can do a really nice room in the spa tower but it will be $50 a night. She didn't say anything else. I took it and just about crapped my pants when I opened the door to the suite. It was AMAZING!. 2 stories, spa tub, steam room, full bar, huge couch and sitting area, surround sound stereo system.

    This one does look incredible. One of these days I'll stay downtown, and this room is on the short list.

    @UKFanatic that terrace is just ridiculous. I'd have a hard time leaving.

    It was really nice. And those pics don't really do justice to the size of the terrace. It is huge.

    That said, it doesn't make my list of top five suites for two reasons. First, it takes forever to get to. Those are at the end of the hall and it takes forever to come and go from the room. Second, the suite is so open and the terrace is so huge that its impossible to keep cool in the summer, especially the second floor of the uite where the bedroom is located

    1.2 BR Penthouse in the SkySuites at Aria (never could figure out why they didn't put a steam shower in the 1 BR)
    2.Wynn Salon

    3.Don't know the name of it but back when the Rio was the Rio, there were 4 two story suites on top of the Ipanema Tower.

    Skylofts are on my bucket list.

    I’m a Mirage loyalist so my suite stays elsewhere are limited, but my favorites are:

    1BR Penthouse/Tower suites at Mirage - huge, floor to ceiling windows, separate dressing area, great for entertaining.
    Corner suite at Aria - sweet all the way around, the view from the bed at night of the glitzy lights, wow!
    Terrace Suite Fountain View at Cosmo - for the terrace view and 2 bathrooms.
    Encore at Wynncore - cool and cool
    Siena Suite at VP - super duper, but no view, ever, boo hoo.

    Would love a Skyloft or Penthouse at Aria some day, but not in the cards as I don’t want to pay for the upgrade.

    There are steam showers in the one bedroom penthouse suites, but not the standard one bedroom skysuites (the ones they used to call the "Aria" suite; not sure if they still use that name)

    All of the One Bedroom Penthouses have steam showers too.
