Four Seasons Hotel Is One Of The Best Las Vegas Hotels

Four Season Hotel Las Vegas

There are zillions of Las Vegas Hotels. But which one should you stay in? My strong recommendation is The Four Seasons Hotel.
The Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas? That was my initial reaction too as I had never seen the hotel. That is because it is an hotel within a hotel! The Four Seasons takes up the top floors of the Mandalay Bay hotel block. The only sign for the hotel is an entrance sign on Las Vegas Boulevard South near the Mandalay Bay Conference Center. 

The lobby is on the ground floor and unlike other strip hotels it does not have a casino nor a parking garage. There is easy access direct into the Mandalay Bay casino, and if you don’t want to use the valet parking ($19/ night) you can park in Mandalay Bay. 

The Four Seasons is a great place to stay if you want to be in Vegas but avoid the full on Blitz of casino noise and bustle every time you leave your room to go anywhere. You can easily come and go without seeing a casino area. But there is easy access via a room key controlled door directly into the Mandalay bay casino. 

The pool at the hotel is great. The pool is on the ground floor and fenced off and although it gets busy it does not feel as packed as other pools in Vegas. Service at the pool is outstanding, they set up your beds, you can order food, they bring round jugs of ice water all the time, bring round small smoothies, Popsicles and iced fruit. If you want it is a short walk to the Mandalay Wave pool and pools. The pool at the hotel on this last trip was full of families with young children, and guess the lack of the casino is attracting more and more families. So not as peaceful by the pool as used to be…

The service overall is what makes the hotel good. There is a lot of attention to detail everywhere. The room cleaning is meticulous and they take time to sort and tidy your toiletries even! In the excellent (and quiet) fitness room they check if you want a drink as you work out. Overall the four seasons make you feel like a guest, not just a number. 

As the hotel is at the end of the strip you also feel a bit out of the madness. But as there is a tram that runs every 5 minutes to Excalibur you can get to the strip fast. But is a long walk to places like Caesar’s palace, so cabs or a car is a good idea. 

The rooms are a good size and comfortable. We chose a strip view which I highly recommend as you get a stunning view both in the day and especially at night. As the hotel takes the top 5 floors all are great. We were on the top floor (39th) which was amazing. 

It is worth watching the Four Season’s site for promotions, we got 3 nights for the price of 2 which is a great deal. It is also best to try and stay in Vegas and the hotel in the week if you can, as it is clearly quieter and even the casino at Mandalay bay, restaurants are quieter – and less drunk and loud weekend partying crowds! I highly recommend the Four Seasons Las Vegas.

The hotel is fairly active on social media like Twitter, but whoever manages it is not that connected to reception and concierge. We had made some requests about not having room with inter-connected door which was acknowledged, but had not been fed into reception system.

Wi-fi costs $14.99 per device, and this seems an out-dated approach!

They also leave some treats like strawberries and chocolate/ small cupcakes/ brownies day after you arrive and the day before you leave. This is a nice touch.

The only real negative was we made the mistake of arriving on a Saturday night fairly late on this trip, and got a not great room as they were full. Avoid that!
A great hotel, highly recommended..
