Las Vegas is a hip, trendy hotspot filled with master celebrity chefs, boutiques, luxury escapes, secret hideaways, world-class spas and unbelievable entertainment. With easy access from Arizona—merely a one-hour flight or four-hour drive from Phoenix—any time is a great time for a luxe Las Vegas escape.

Sleep in Style

Las Vegas is known for its big hotel casinos, but when you want to create an experience to remember, there are a few standouts. For the ultimate in pampering, book your vacation at the ARIA Tower Suites. Your stay starts with complimentary, luxury round-trip airpot transportation and you’ll be whisked to the private Tower Suite Lounge for easy check-in. The best ARIA Tower Suites are the modern corner suites, complete with breathtaking views (especially from the corner bathtubs!).

If your style is more Old World, opt for The Venetian, an elegantly European all-suites resort. Each suite at the Forbes Four Star hotel has a separate sitting room and a marble bath with Roman soaking tub. The Venetian is one of the world’s largest hotels with more than 7,000 suites, as well as luxury shopping and dining, all under a single roof.

Gourmet Dining

Long gone are days when your only dining option was a buffet. Today, celebrity chefs flock to Vegas, and the biggest obstacle is how to fit in so many great options in one visit. One of the absolute best Vegas dining experiences is at Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars palace. The Michelin-star restaurant dishes out impressive French dining, executed by Executive Chef Julien Asseo.
