You don't have to be royalty to play, party and sleep like a prince or princess in Las Vegas. The city is home to some of the most outrageously over-the-top hotel rooms in the world, hitting a peak of decadence and flashiness in the top-end suites. We've selected a few of our favourite high rollin' Sin City playrooms...
Palms Casino Resort
Our hands down winner has to be the Kingpin Bowling Fantasy Hotel Suite at Palms Casino Resort (pictured above). Not only does the accommodation come with its very own regulation-sized twin lane bowling alley, there's also a pool table and a cinema-sized projection TV. All this plus two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a full bar. And did we mention there's room for 100 of your friends?
If that's not girly enough for you, then you might want to opt for the Barbie Suite instead. And if you're the sort of gal for whom a 'pink-themed' hen-do is the ultimate dream come true, there's no finer place to have a last pre-marital shindig than here. Get ready in front of the sunburst mirror made from 65 Barbie dolls and take a soak in the extra-large Jacuzzi. Then visit the full bar to mix some cocktails for up to 50 of your friends.
Caesars Palace teamed up with Absolut Vodka and Esquire magazine to create this bi-level party pad featuring six differently-themed spaces that embody the style and spirit of Absolut flavours. The Raspberri lounge has its own reflective black dance floor and panoramic views of the Strip, while a Vanilia bedroom brings some calming respite with Nordic-inspired cream and white decor and an ivory sleigh bed. Other bedrooms include the sun-filled Citron and the rather bizarre Apeachwhere the bed appears to hover on a sky-blue carpet 'swimming pool'.
Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
For sheer unadulterated opulence, you can't beat the Verona Sky Villa at the former Las Vegas Hilton. The largest of the Sky Villas collection, it has a grandeur unlike anywhere else in the city - the ceilings are hand-painted, the sculptures are original, fixtures are gold-plated and the marble floors were imported from Italy. On top of that, you have your own private garden, pool and observation deck in addition to several hot tubs, a grand piano, gigantic bar and three bedrooms.
Red Rock Casino Resort
Located away from the main drag, and with views of both the Strip and Red Rock Canyon, the One-Eighty Suite at Red Rock Casino Resort offers the most unbeatable views in the city. For entertaining, there's a huge living room - with 108-inch plasma TV and sofa that seats around 16 guests - as well as a pool table and pantry with sub zero fridge. Best of all though, is the magnificent terrace, with large circular Jacuzzi, cocktail bar with seating for four and a custom-built couch that rotates.
Wynn Las Vegas
If you want to follow in the footsteps of a certain young prince, book a stay at one of the most exclusive hotels in town. Wynn Las Vegas is well known for the flamboyant touches of billionaire owner Steve Wynn, and replicas from his personal art collection subtly line the walls of his suites, including a Picasso lithograph in the Parlor Suite. For the most amount of expansive living accommodation, the Salon Suite is the one to book. Survey the scene from behind the semi-circular marble wet bar, or pop into the adjoining powder room to freshen up before a night on the town. No need to worry about getting a good nights sleep - all rooms come with a signature 'Wynn Dream Bed', available to purchase for a cool $5k.
For the ultimate Las Vegas party trip, head straight to Virgin Holidays who can book the tailor made Las Vegas holiday of your dreams.
