For World Class Performances


There's no better place to catch a show in Vegas than the illustrious Caesars Palace, where you can see, on any given night, a world-class performance from the one-and-only Celine Dion, and upcoming dates with crooner Rod Stewart and country superstar Reba McEntire. If a concert isn't your thing, there are plenty of live comedy shows, magic acts, and onsite activites to partake in. But don't miss an opportunity to take a walk through The Forum Shops at Caesars, a massive over 600,000-square-foot mall connected to the hotel and filled with luxury boutiques from Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Fendi, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, and Cartier, among others.

For the Utmost in Luxury


The Penthouse Suite, which includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a formal living room, formal dining area with seating for eight, and a double-door entrance for the most dramatic of entrances, is The Venetian's most luxurious suite. The room also comes complimentary with airport limo service, to make your trip at The Venetian a stressless journey; VIP check-in and concierge services, for a seamless stay at the hotel; and, limitless access to the lounge, a special service reserved for Penthouse Suite visitors. Feel like royalty when booking a stay here.

For an Intimate Escape


Not only do Wynn Fairway Villas at The Wynn come with pristine marble bathrooms, an exclusive private-drive entrance, personal ambassador, and a dining room equipped with a mahogany and granite wet bar, but also a private balcony with a view of the resort and surrounding valley. Dine al fresco with friends on the terrace or spend the day at the resort's award-winning spa, salon, and fitness center, a small walk from your room. At night, for a little excitement, pop by one of the many clubs: XS, Surrender, Intrigue, or Encore Beach Club, and dance the night away.

For a View of the City


Smack in the middle of Sin City is the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental, which offers anyone staying at the hotel a spectacular view of The Strip. A visit to the Mandarin Bar also comes with a sweeping look out onto the city, so order a few cocktails and sip away till your heart's content near the floor-to-ceiling windows. Taking in the view while lounging poolside with a martini doesn't sound bad either.
