How to measure luxury? as in - what is the "most luxurious" resort in Vegas?

Although Resorts World has some NICE suites, including the Crockford's Entertainment Suite we stay in regularly, my wife has been commenting that a lot of the luxury at Resorts World is specious - that the place seems more like a cookie cutter hotel with a lot of gloss over to make it look superior.

I think one way is to consider the cost of the resort versus number of rooms, taking into consideration the date built and the relative value of money from that time.

Resorts Worlds cost 4.6B to build. Cosmopolitan cost 3.9B Encore 2.6B Wynn 2.7B Bellagio 1.6B Venetian 1.5B Palazzo 1.8B

Resorts World has 3506 rooms, completed in 2021, Cosmopolitan 3027 rooms, completed in Dec 2010. Encore has 2034 rooms, completed Dec 2008, Wynn has 2716 rooms completed April 2005.

So, Resorts World per room cost was $1,312,036 per room in 2021, Cosmopolitan $1,288,404. per room in 2010, Encore $1,278,269. per room in 2008, Wynn $994,108. per room in 2005. I believe that if you consider the relative price of construction in say, 2008, that Encore put more money into its structure relative to the number of rooms than Resorts World.

If I had exact square footage sizes of these buildings I could make even better comparisons.

A balcony-less option for a QUIETER room (little or no pool noise), is the sealed window version of the Tuscany Suite (1500 sq. ft.), at Green Valley Ranch. The Tuscany Suites are available with or without balcony

This is a version of the Tuscany with what they call a Juliet balcony, which got me to thinking.
What is a Juliet balcony?

I was excited/happy to have a little mini-balcony when we stayed at GVR.

Our room did NOT look like your Pix !
Like the castle in its corner In a medieval game; I foresee terrible trouble And I stay here just the same

Cosmopolitan Bungalows

At the Cosmopolitan, there are tri-level bungalows. We stayed in one for about two weeks Ė the noise from the right next door Marquis day club (which becomes day and night weekends), is not edifying, but Monday Tuesday Wednesday the place is pretty quiet.

These are one of the few suites left in Vegas with a steam shower. On the top floor, one side has a balcony for relaxing, partying, dining (750 sq. ft.), the other side Ė a jacuzzi.

Mid (second floor), the bedroom, a sitting area, and the bathroom, downstairs, a bar, living room area, another full bath, and another outdoor patio (135 sq. ft.). These bungalows used to have direct access to the Cosmo Boulevard tower pool and to Marquis, but no longer. From the bedroom and upstairs deck, you may look down and see and hear Marquis in action if you wish.

At the Bungalows you are assigned personal 24-hour Butler service. These are the same butlers who service the million dollar penthouses on the Boulevard tower rooftop.

These butlers will try to take care of your every need - for example even room service is brought in and set up by them, not the usual staff, and they will even go into town to get whatever you request (number one request I understand is - In n Out fast food ?) - but after a few days the butlers figured out that we weren't into all that and mostly just wanted to be left alone. However, once a day maintenance must enter to check and add chlorine to the jacuzzi, so there was no way to be entirely left alone in these Bungalows.

When we arrived the staff was surprised that there were only two of us. Typically large groups book these bungalows to party. I suppose they end up crashing all over the downstairs on the couches, because there is only one bedroom. We also stayed quite a bit longer than most guests, so we experienced the full range of noisy and quiet days. If looking for a different experience in Vegas - these bungalows are it. More like a Hawaiian townhouse than a Vegas hotel suite.

1695 sq. ft.

The poor inhabitants of the condos next door to Aria and the Cosmo are bombarded by neon glare from what appears to be an Aria billboard. This is a scene straight out of Blade Runner - no rest for the weak and weary in those condos on those floors they must have to keep their windows boarded up day and night.

At Wynn and Encore, we have stayed at both Salon Suites and Parlor Suites.

Salon Suite on the Encore suite (2261 sq. ft.):





but in general, since we stay so long at a time and they are easier on the comps, we prefer the COMParable Parlor Suites.

Here is one on the Wynn side (1280 sq. ft.):













And on the Encore side (1408 sq. ft.):

















Over all, the equivalent Encore suite is going to be larger than at Wynn. The Encore parlor suite has its own little massage / treatment room for private services. Even the Encore salon suite, which is larger, doesnít have that Ė in the Encore salon suite the massage table is at one end of the living room.

Better closet space, more drawers, more usable cabinets and more surface area to place items (such as all your vitamin and supplement bottles) on the Wynn side though. AND Ė as noted above Ė lately the combined noise from the Resorts World nightclubs and Encore Beach Club make a stay on the Encore tower suites side not so peaceful.

RED ROCK

This is another Station Casino, like GVR. When we stay here we have stayed in the one bedroom luxury suite (1545 sq. ft.).

When you are VIP and in these suites, you have an assigned butler who handles room service and other needs. I was wondering if the butler would unfold and hang our clothing? I didn't ask.

















View is decent, albeit across the 215 freeway


Reminiscent of the old Hard Rock Vegas suites, the sound system is decent

These bottles are not complimentary! (well, yes they would be compíed off but they do not come automatically with the suite):



The Red Rock has a bank of VIP elevators that access the VIP room directly

but otherwise, arenít much different from the regular bank of elevators, that is nearby.

Lately we have been staying at Wynn salon suites (1817 sq. ft.). Although they do burn up the comps a little faster than the Parlor suites, they are nice for a change, and weíve been able to stay in them up to two weeks at a time, fully RFB compíed.

The Wynn salon suites, like the Encore parlor suites, have their own massage room for private treatments.

RESORTS WORLD.

We've stayed in this two bedroom 2000 sq. ft. suite a few times. The first time it was notated as Hilton, but has since been rebranded as Crockford's, which means Butler service.







Yes, this suite includes the toilet with the heated seat and built in bidet!

Only skimmed the thread. Must have missed the 4 Queens, Circus Circus, Cortez, Silver Sevens, OYO and Arizona Charlieís reviews.
