    I was in a one bedroom penthouse last stay and could swear it did not have a steam shower.
    Maybe I missed it!
    I'm usually in an Aria Suite(base level one bedroom)and they do not.

    Pretty sure it’s in the “panoramic” one, not the regular penthouse.

    Anyone who’s had the steam shower... is it worth upgrading for?

    My last like 5 trips I've done an MGM terrace for at least 2 of the nights... that terrace got me spoiled. I mass emailed this picture of my remote office to all my coworkers a couple trips ago to stir the pot a bit. The walk definitely does suck, even if you're on a high floor, but IMO it's worth it and at least it's not some bizarre maze like trying to find your room at Flamingo

    My 2nd favorite would have to be the 1BR Mirage penthouse, dollar for dollar it seems like one of the better deals if you're paying for a room. I think my idea trip right now would be 2 nights in the Mirage penthouse then 2 in the MGM terrace.

    Next month I'm giving the Luxor 2BR tower penthouse a shot. I'm gonna miss my terrace but the Luxor suite was super cheap for the dates and I haven't had a room with a pool table yet

    Every penthouse in the Sky Suites has a steam shower.

    I love a suite even though I’m solo most of the time. All of these rooms were paid upgrades from a comp.


    Favorite view from a bath tub: Corner suite at aria

    Favorite view from the bed: Cypress suite at Bellagio. (Low floor but still a great suite. I felt the living/dining room was a waste with the views from the bed and both baths were fabulous)

    Best suite to add a 2nd person without a 2nd bedroom is the Bellagio Suite. With all the living room space and guest powder room it was easy to have 2 people in the same room and not be on top of each other. In the morning we each had our own bathroom.

    Best bar (and dining room) the Mirage Suite. I liked having a place to sit and have a drink and some snacks. The fridge didn’t freeze all my stuff like most of them.

    I was upgraded to the Living Arts suite once, mid-week during a slow period. It's featured on the first half of this video. Though I didn't stay in the Nirvana suite (second part of the video), I was invited to a party there. I also stayed in another cool suite at the Hard Rock called The Stones Suite. All are on the 16th floor of the HRH Tower.



    She didn't come with the room...



    I've stayed in the Gorilla Suite several times and the Tree Bark Suite... both have separate entrances to the pool area and a killer private outdoor section with TV and firepit. These are over on the pool level of the Paradise tower.

    Probably my favorite though is the two-(2) story spa villa (terrible video) I've stayed in twice. It also has private ground floor access to the pool area with a TV, hot tub, fire pit and seating outside, but it also has a private elevator. I love the clean, modern feel of that room. It also came with butler service, which was cool as hell. Valentino Crespo greeted me and fully stocked my room with my favorite booze, snacks and mixers all complimentary!



    My stay in these suites was a result of my loyalty to the property. I'm offered the upgrade from time to time and I REALLY appreciate it. During those years, I stayed 4-5 days a month at the Hard Rock though, so I got to know a lot of the wonderful folks very well there.

    The normal room I stay in is in the video below (again Gin Wigmore doesn't come with the room). I always book a corner room (extra bank of windows and one less neighbor). All the rooms in the HRH Tower look like this. Very comfortable place to crash! This tower opened in 2009 or '10 and I swear every time I stay there, I feel like I'm the first one to ever stay in the room. They keep the place immaculate and always in well-repair.

    Not from what I can tell. This is the bath amenity listing of the “regular” penthouse...

    [​IMG]

    Whereas this is the bath amenity listing for the “strip view” penthouse...

    Of course, it’s possible this could simply be an error on their website. That’s all I have to go on, I’ve never actually set foot in one of these suites.

    Yes, steam showers are worth it. However, the big perk between the 1 Bedroom Sky Suite and 1 Bedroom Penthouse Sky Suite at Aria is the extra sq/ft and frankly nicer looking furnishings.
    Note, all Aria Penthouses have steam showers. Not just Panoramic Penthouses.

    Regarding the Luxor Penthouses, most but not all of them have pool tables.

    I got married at the Bellagio in 1999 (yikes, 20 years later this year!) :blink: and they handled the whole ceremony. We were staying in a regular room, didn’t even have a fountain view! So fast forward to the end of the ceremony, the lady in charge calls me over and says she is so sorry but something malfunctioned with the video equipment (and mind you, there were no cell phone videos back then ;))and they didn’t get ANY of the ceremony on video.

    So she apologized profusely and asked if there was anything they could do. I, as a 23-year old naive young girl, jokingly said, “how about a suite?” to which she immediately said absolutely. I guess I probably could have asked for more LOL.

    Again, being the young kids we were, had no idea what a suite actually consisted of. I remember the shock of seeing this hotel room! To this day, I’m not even sure which suite it was, but this is where it was (circled). I think it was only a 1-bedroom, but it had a huge living area, kitchen, bar, and of course, the best view in the place. And we were staying an additional 3 nights, and they gave it to us for all 3 nights free of charge! That’s a pretty class act.

    Amazing experience, especially since it was our wedding/honeymoon! Still the best room we’ve ever had, though this summer us and 2 other couples have reserved the Chelsea 3-bedroom penthouse suite at the Cosmo so that reign might finally be over. There’s not much out there on it, but it looks redonk so we’re all very excited. The hubbies all had great years work wise so they’re treating us! Woohoo!

    Was it a cypress suite? That's probably fifth on my list of fav Vegas suites I have stayed in

    My kids and I stayed in the Flamingo metro suite for my 60th birthday. It was amazing and made for a great trip

    Yes! Looks like that might be it, but it looked nothing like it does now LOL! It was very peach and very gaudy (but nice for the times). Does anyone remember the stair case that used to be by the gardens? They took all of my wedding photos on those stairs.

    @Kdiamond

    They put you in a Lakeview Suite. Those are actually just below the area you circled. They run about $800 on a weeknight.

    Really had to go out of your way there... to compare what was likely someone’s most memorable couple days of her life, to rank just 5th on your almighty scale huh?

    Respectfully, you’re taking this the wrong way, I think.

    I understand what you’re saying in that it appears to sound belittling... but for someone like UKFanatic who has seen some seriously baller accommodations as an actual high roller, it is actually quite a compliment for a suite to rank fifth on his list.

    While you may have read what he said as “Pfft, that’s only fifth on my list”, I think it was pretty clear that he meant it’s in the upper percentage of suites he’s stayed in.

    In this thread, we’re discussing the best suites that are available out there. With that being such a subjective topic, informed opinions are essential for good insights to be had.
