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
