Las Vegas hotels take luxury to new heights — and prices


A 10,000-square-foot suite that includes a basketball court at the Palms will set you back $25,000 a night. At MGM Grand’s Skylofts, you will find a bathtub that fizzes with Champagne-like massage bubbles and airport pickup in a $400,000 car.

If you’re scared off by the price tag, these luxuries aren’t for you. But Las Vegas has always specialized in providing an over-the-top experience for those with an unlimited budget.

Celebrities and athletes have spent thousands on suites with massage and film-screening rooms, 24-hour butler service, private elevators and chefs, even showers that are in the middle of the suite.

And what’s a weekend in Vegas without an airport greeting and pickup in a Maybach 62. At the Bellagio, guests who shell out $6,000 a night for the Chairman Suite can enjoy a solarium and whirlpool tubs with views of the city.

The Palms, however, has taken it to another level with its Two Story Sky Villa. The former Hugh Hefner Sky Villa will set you back $40,000 a night.

The most expensive hotel room in Nevada has its own glass elevator to the second floor and an infinity pool that seats 12 and cantilevers off the balcony. The 9,000-square-foot luxury playground houses three bedrooms, a fitness center, dry sauna, outdoor terrace and media room with revolving bed.

According to the Palms, “It’s the perfect place to entertain up to 250 of your closest friends.”
