The Four Season is widely rated as one of the number one hotels in Vegas. For this reason, we decided to try it even though it is located on the far North end of the strip far from our usual stomping ground. From the moment you arrive you do not get the Vegas Strip feeling. A reception employee warmly greets you in the quiet, elegant reception area. Unlike many Vegas reception areas, check in was quick and easy. unfortunately our room was not ready so we were told they would phone when we could pick up our keys. Unlike the Four Seasons reputation, we never received the phone call and after two hours went back to ask and find that our room was ready.
The room was definitely the highlight of the trip. As you can see from the video, this 180 degree strip view suite lived up to its name with an entire wall of windows running along the strip side. The room was expansive to say the least, you could easily host dinner for eight or a party of 20. The bed was another highlight, with crisp white sheets and a fluffy mattress pad it was a welcome haven after the massive walking we do in Vegas.
The problem with this location can be summed up with three words…location, location, location. The hotel occupies the top of the Mandalay Bay Resort which could be good because it offers many dining and entertainment options, but usually was annoying because it was easy to get turned around and not be able to find the Four Seasons lobby. Also, unless you are willing to travel the Mandalay Bay casino is pretty much your only option. We do give a big thumbs up for the house car that is available to guests and will take you (for free, except tip) anywhere within reason. We were suitably impressed when the new, sleek black Mercedes picked us up and the friendly driver took whisked us to the Hard Rock.
So, in summary the Four Seasons is elegant and peaceful, but for the money, We would recommend Bellagio.
