Private gaming salons, personal sushi chefs and in-room saunas. In Vegas, these are just obvious penthouse perks... Right?
The handiwork of designer Daun Curry, who makes her first foray into hotel design with contributions to Cosmopolitan's new penthouses.
Everything old will be new again in Las Vegas, and everything new won’t stay that way too long. Reinvention is not only a pillar on which the city’s hospitality industry stands, it’s a promise to high rollers who arrive with the expectation that they’ll experience something new and different. That’s what they’re paying for, isn’t it?
Keeping that promise means keeping up with the Joneses—or in Las Vegas’ case, the Wynns and Adelsons—on every front. If your closest competitor just replaced the carpet in its suites, your floors are looking stale by comparison. If their beds have new sheets, you’d better up your thread count. We’re in the midst of a turnover in Strip room design, one that began with Encore Las Vegas and Venetian upgrading their suites in 2015. Over the last 18 months, Caesars Entertainment has been redesigning its namesake property—especially tinkering with its top floors—and Cosmopolitan has invested in some of its premier real estate to lure players with deep pockets. Here are some of those designs, and the extras included.
The Titus Villa in Caesars Palace comes with a baby grand, working fireplace and more ambiance than you can shake a chandelier at.
Caesars is preparing to unveil a new look for the villas on the 29th floor of its Palace Tower. The renovations are part of a two-year project to refresh more than 800 suites in the Caesars Entertainment portfolio. Among the most impressive redesigns is the Julius Executive Duplex Suite at the Julius Tower. This two-story, 1,438-square-foot space features Strip views, floor-to-ceiling windows and a stone bathroom. Perks include airport limo service and no resort fees. Speaking of perks, if you’re staying in a villa or penthouse at Nobu Hotel, you can order a master sushi chef to your room to prepare your meal. Caesars’ $25,000-per-night Titus Villa even comes with its own butler, and the new Augustus Spa Suite has its own sauna.
Funky art is a hallmark of Richmond International's designs for Cosmopolitan.
Starting from scratch—literally, as the floors had been empty—Cosmopolitan has transformed the top of its Boulevard Tower into a 63,000-square- foot luxury experience to make guests feel like 007. Acclaimed designers Daun Curry, Adam Tihany and Richmond International, who all worked as consultants to Marnell Companies, contributed to the 21 Boulevard Penthouses, which are larger than most homes—2,000 to 5,000 square feet—and feature in-suite bars where one can enjoy a vodka martini shaken or stirred.
The biggest lure for these big spenders is the private gaming salon with the Strip in full view. For their eyes only, of course.
