People head to Vegas to enjoy vacations that are over-the-top—from the casinos to the nightclubs to the restaurants and, of course, to the hotels. Even the smaller boutique properties understand the need for extravagance. Luckily Rumor, the new boutique resort opened last summer, has just unveiled four mega-suites, each boasting a different (yet equally eccentric) personality for revelers to retire to.
Formerly the rather dilapidated St. Tropez Hotel, The Siegel Group spent $4 million converting the property into a 150-all-suite resort. “If you had seen what Rumor initially looked like before we took it over—it’s truly night and day,” says Michael Crandall, director of business development, The Siegel Group. “Over the summer, we debuted the property and its regular suites, our restaurant Addiction and intimate lounge. This afforded us the ability to take our time, ensuring these mega-suites would be the best they could be.”
Designed in collaboration with Mark Tracy of Chemical Spaces, the suites are well worth the wait, offering four chromatic visions for the wearied carouser. Each suite boasts 1,000 square feet of sexy eccentricity and faces Rumor’s signature courtyard, which is dotted with swaying palms and pools. The first-floor suites open up onto the patio, mere steps from the pool, while the second-floor suites come with French doors leading onto an oversized balcony.
The Swinger Mega-Suite celebrates a sensual yet masculine palette of grays, blacks and pewters with mirrored stripes darting across the walls and ceiling like silver lightning. Adding a sliver of scandal is a California king bed on a small stage with footlights and two provocative female murals.
Furthering the masculine vibe is the Camouflage Mega-Suite which has floor-to-ceiling blue camouflage layered with barren black trees branching into slender twigs. Another female mural serves as an ideal foil for the powder-blue sofas and the gray-tiled floors.
The Diva Mega-Suite is a feminine and flirty fantasy, striped with pink mirrors, pink walls and a reclining-pink-woman mural, coquettishly demure. A darker incarnation of the playfully pink Diva, the Gossip Mega-Suite has blood-red walls with black floral graphics and the mural shows a ruby-lipped woman offering the guest a rose blossom. This suite comes with two queen beds, offsetting the merlot-colored walls with bright white sheets and black and silver throw pillows.
Guests won’t have to keep the partying in the bedroom either—they can invite it right into the bath. Every suite has an “ultra-lounge/party bathroom” boasting a 10-person open shower with two rain showerheads and a lush U-shaped couch.
