Visiting Las Vegas for Valentine’s Day? There’s no better time to book a luxurious room or suite for your beloved. It’s sure to make your whispered sweet nothings sound even sweeter.
And Las Vegas knows how to turn up the heat when it comes to amore. The city is home to some of the most romantic hotels in the world. People come from all over to enjoy a glittering paradise – where indulgence of every kind is the norm. From gorgeous views to bubbling spa tubs and fantasy themes, you’ll have some sensational room choices both on and off the Strip.
Take, for example, the El Contempo suite at the El Cortez. It’s one of the rooms that was renovated as part of the hotel’s innovative Design-A-Suite Downtown competition. The décor boasts sultry tones of gold, white and charcoal.
“There are ‘fun surfaces’ like high-gloss floors, shag carpets, leather furniture, a mirrored headboard and a curtain made of gold beads – as well as an in-room Jacuzzi,” said Alexandra Epstein, the executive manager of the El Cortez. “The room seems almost made for romantic evenings.”
Plus, there are plenty of ways for a couple to set their enchanted night in motion at the El Cortez. Dinner at The Flame Steakhouse makes for a wonderful choice. Not only is there a vintage menu of dining classics, such as oysters Rockefeller and chicken Kiev, but patrons will also take pleasure in an incredible wine list and music supplied by a live pianist.
“Follow up dinner with drinks at our brand new Parlour Bar, where our bartenders hand-craft specialty cocktails, and entertainment is live and exciting. If you feel like testing your luck, take your shot at any of our exciting games,” added Epstein. “The best part – you are able to participate in all of this without breaking the bank!”
Or if you desire flirty, more contemporary surroundings for your ideal Valentine’s celebration, spend a night in the Diva Mega Suite at Rumor Boutique Hotel, which is located just east of the Strip.
“Whether it is a night out on the town or just getting away from it all, we’re perfectly situated close enough to the action of the Strip, but far enough removed that a couple can enjoy each other’s company while experiencing pampering service,” said Shaw McPherson, the general manager of Rumor Boutique Hotel.
In this extravagant suite, you’ll be immersed in a soft pink color scheme, which is sure to bring out your passionate side. And if you call ahead, you can have a private Valentine’s meal – a five-course dinner with wine pairings – served by a butler.
“The view from the balcony of the courtyard and skyline of the Las Vegas Strip is breathtaking in the evening,” said McPherson. “Sipping a glass of champagne there with the one you love as the sun goes down is the perfect way to begin any romantic evening.”
Below we’ve compiled a list of 10 sizzling suites in Sin City, where chances are good you’ll get lucky! They encompass a wide variety of prices and amenities.
But remember, love should be celebrated all year long – not just on Valentine’s Day. So if you can’t get away for a stay on Feb. 14, don’t worry…simply plan a trip to Las Vegas later in the year. With romance on tap 24/7, the city is always ready to help you create memories that will last a lifetime.
