According to the 2012 Portrait of American Travelers survey from travel and hospitality marketing firm MMGY Global, leisure travelers with a household income in the range of $50,000 to $124,999 are somewhat more likely to be interested in visiting Las Vegas than those in higher brackets. That doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in booking exceptional accommodations for what may be the only vacation they’ll take this year. And those with higher incomes still expressed a healthy interest in Sin City and would also be candidates for some of the best and brightest digs in town. Here is a sampling of outstanding new, and some tried-and-true, accommodations for them.
If your clients have enjoyed a stay at the Bellagio before, and are looking for a different experience, you might want to suggest, well, the Bellagio. Only this time, book them into one of the three new, 2,500-square-foot Executive Parlor Suites. Each one is equipped with a billiards lounge and separate high-tech home theater living area. The new suites were introduced as part of Bellagio’s recently completed $40 million remodeling of all 928 rooms and suites in its Spa Tower. Agents should direct their queries to Executive Director of Leisure Sales Jennifer Parnell ([email protected]; 702-693-7952).
For the foodies among your clientele, the new Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace is the first celebrity chef-branded hotel venture in Las Vegas. No matter which of the 117 king rooms, 46 double queen rooms or 18 suites your clients stay in, they’ll find a minibar filled up by Chef Nobu himself. Guest amenities include VIP access to Nobu Restaurant, VIP access to Pure Nightclub, Nobu’s signature hot tea served in the room upon arrival, and tech touches like iPad registration, an iPad docking station and Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace app. Reach out to D’Anna Malbrough ([email protected], 702-946-7608), senior manager partner marketing, leisure sales, Caesars Entertainment.
Four Seasons guest rooms and suites are on floors 35 to 39 of the Mandalay Bay tower, and we hear the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows are impressive. Real Vegas aficionados will want to book the suites, which have panoramic views of the Strip or the valley. All suites have sofas with pull-out sleeper beds, making them good picks for families. And tech-focused travelers will appreciate the new multimedia hubs on the TVs that let guests plug in their own devices to listen to music or watch films. Agents can contact Associate Director of Sales Shelly Gray ([email protected]; 702-632-5000) for more information.
Each of the West End Penthouses at The Cosmopolitan are individually designed with whimsical touches such as crystal-encrusted wall textures, an admirable art collection, and rich, tailor-made fabrics. These penthouses, range in size from 2,400 to 3,700 square feet, are available in two- and three-bedroom configurations and have floor-to-ceiling windows, a separate wet bar and kitchenette with serving space. Many also offer terraces with panoramic views. There’s also butler service to attend to your clients’ needs. For details, get in touch with Senior Leisure Sales Manager Katie Ladomerszky ([email protected], 702-698-7084).
For your truly devoted golfing clients, the Fairway Villas at Wynn afford sweeping views of the Wynn Golf Course. There’s a balcony suitable for outdoor dining (to celebrate a victory on the course, perhaps?), which may be preceded or followed by a drink at the backlit mahogany-and-marble wet bar. Even golf widows and widowers can appreciate the private massage room, rain shower and infinity-edge bathtub. Direct any queries to Ramesh Sadhwani ([email protected], 702-770-2101), senior vice president and GM, hotel operations.
Amid all the over-the-top opulence and excess of Las Vegas, the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas may feel like an oasis of serenity. While its single tower is impressively high (commanding great views of the city and the mountains), the non-gaming hotel has a small footprint (at least by Vegas standards). And with only two restaurants (not counting the elegant lobby lounge) and one outdoor pool, the Trump hotel is a good choice for those seeking a more laid-back experience.
The top five floors of the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas are all one-, two- and three-bedroom penthouses ranging from 1,500 square feet to 3,000 square feet. All of the Penthouses have a private main foyer entrance, a separate dining area, and full kitchens with appliances by Wolf, Bosch and Sub-Zero. Families will want to book the three-bedroom penthouse, which has its own library nook. The master bedroom in the Penthouse has 360-degree floor-to-ceiling views with separate seating areas and an adjoining master bathroom with his-and-hers water closets. If the penthouse suites are not available, the one-bedroom suites are also good for families, or small groups looking for plenty of room to spread out. Agents should get in touch with Senior Sales Manager Dustin Personius ([email protected], 702-476-7209) for more information.
If your clients prefer the action of Downtown Las Vegas, the El Cortez Cabana Suites offers 64 boutique-style rooms and suites with fresh modern colors and chic designs and an enhanced fitness center for guests.

Guests can book the Super Suite, the Junior Suite or the Deluxe Room. The Super Suite also offers an expanded living room area furnished with a retro-style loveseat, armchair and coffee table.
