Rooms for improvement: The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is in the midst of a major renovation

About two weeks ago the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas embarked on a $30 million project to completely renovate all 424 of its guest rooms and suites. The chic new interiors will boast an innovative art deco design.

“While the initial design style was more traditional, the restyled guest rooms are sophisticated and modern,” said Erica Johnson-McElroy, director of public relations for the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. “The rooms’ design echoes the excitement and vibrancy of Las Vegas itself, featuring sleek, quality-constructed furnishings and bold color pairings.”

The new guest rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas will feature modern interiors that are stylish, comfortable and functional.

The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas was built in 1999. Its rooms and suites are located within Mandalay Bay on floors 35 through 39.  A non-gaming property, it is revered in the luxury travel world and has been designated an AAA Five Diamond resort.

“We are confident our guests will enjoy our re-styled rooms paired with the comfort, luxurious amenities and the legendary service for which Four Seasons is known,” added Johnson-McElroy.

New carpeting, wall coverings and furnishings are being installed in all accommodations. Polished ribbon mahogany and cream lacquer finishes, combined with white silver leaf and nail head accents, add to the visual drama.

“I love the bold, oversized pieces of modern art,” said Johnson-McElroy, regarding her favorite thing about the redesigned rooms. “Their size is reminiscent of a residential collection while the colors are fun and unexpected. They add an edgy yet sophisticated touch to the chic design palette.”

The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas has also commissioned the artisans at the locally owned and operated Gladstone Industries Corporation to craft multiple pieces that will complement the glamorous new room design. This includes decorative minibar towers, end tables and drink carts.

A generously proportioned desk can be found in each of the newly redesigned guest rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas.

“We are proud that we were able to contribute to the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint by having so many of the stunning pieces in our guest rooms manufactured right here in the Las Vegas community,” said Mark Hellrung, general manager of the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas.

A focus on sustainable practices is also playing a big role in the renovation. New CFL and LED light bulbs are being utilized. LEED-certified paint and green-certified carpeting and pads have been selected as well. The old wall vinyl, carpeting and pads will be recycled.

In addition, guests can expect the signature Four Seasons premium bedding. A large desk and ergonomic chair will highlight each workspace. Every bathroom is receiving classic marble flooring and vanity tops. Plus, there will be custom-designed faucet sets and backlit mirrors as well as frameless glass shower enclosures to create a streamlined look.

When it comes to technology, guests will be able to stay connected to the world at large with 100 MB high-speed internet access. Each flat-screen television will also have its own multimedia hub for recharging devices as well as for viewing films, listening to music or playing games. Moreover, the resort has full-time, on-site IT professionals, who are available to provide assistance if needed.

The pool area at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas

The pool area at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas will be getting a makeover that will include the construction of an outdoor lounge.

Construction on the rooms and suites is slated to be complete by Dec. 8, 2012. In order to minimize disruption, a floor-by-floor system is being implemented so that a single floor is remodeled and then turned back over to the hotel just as work commences on the next one.

The renovation project at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas will include a new lobby bar and an outdoor lounge with fire pits set within the lushly landscaped pool gardens. This will not be finished until early 2013.

“Our main priority continues to be providing our guests with unparalleled service and amenities,” concluded Johnson-McElroy. “Our fresh, restyled rooms will only add to the overall hotel experience.”


I’m a Las Vegas native. By profession, I write at Mostly about the city’s hotels, but on other topics – gaming and transportation – too. I really love staying at hotels. And the ones here are among the biggest and best in the world. Some key things I’ve learned: Resort fees are inescapable (frustrating but true), a friendly attitude at the front desk may score you a great view and over-the-top room amenities – bath butlers, Japanese tea service, menus with “intimate” items – do exist. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m comfortable at a blackjack table. And I like eating late-night pancakes in hotel coffee shops. A lot. Follow Renee on Google+.
