Considering Las Vegas is home to some of the world’s most famous hotels, it should come as no surprise that the city offers several luxurious lodging options for those who want to make the most out of their trip to Sin City. From themed suites to private villas, here’s a peek behind the doors of some of Las Vegas’ coolest places to stay.
THE HARDWOOD AND REAL WORLD SUITES AT PALMS CASINO RESORT
Offering something for him and her, the Palms’ Fantasy Tower boasts two of the coolest suites in town. The two-story, 10,000-square-foot Hardwood Suite is great for bachelor parties and comes with its own indoor basketball court, professional locker room, billiards table, Jacuzzi and 24-hour butler service. Guests can even see who has stayed in the suite before them, as there’s a wall by the basketball court that countless celebrities have signed—everyone from Hulk Hogan to George Clooney. The 3,000-square-foot Real World Suite, meanwhile, has a communal bathroom that’s perfect for girls getting ready for a night on the town as well as the original “Confessional” room seen on MTV’s hit reality series. palms.com
