Highs & Lows

  • The emphasis is less on rolling the dice and more about rolling at your own speed - whether you're there for hard partying, fine dining or extreme pampering, there's something that will reinvent the Vegas experience for everyone.

  • They're focused on art...from stacks of art books in the rooms to collaborations with the Art Production fund and hosting artists in residence, who can often be observed at work in open studios.

  • The dining experience at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. (Where else are you going to find a chocolate terrarium on the dessert menu!?) and cool-kid cabaret of Vegas Nocturne is a killer, twisted, hilarious and wildly entertaining experience that's worth the trip alone.

  • From the dining options to the retail shops and music programming, forward-thinking is a clear part of their mission. Catering to a cooler, stylish crowd makes it a great choice for the younger set who may have otherwise written Vegas off as a fun weekend getaway.

  • Spa services don't include use of the hammam, but the massage was top.
