We’ve selected five of the city’s most jaw-dropping, high-roller-worthy suites that we think embody modern Las Vegas decadence. Forget the kitsch and tacky opulence of yore; these beauties are sleek, sophisticated, and, well, pricey.
The Villas at the Mirage have an affirmed reputation as havens for high-rollers and A-listers — and it’s no wonder. The private gated entrance ensures extra privacy, and each villa comes with its own heated pool, putting green, and 24-hour butler. See more photos of Villas at the Mirage

Skylofts is the luxury section of MGM Grand, offering some of the most exclusive accommodations not just within the hotel but in Vegas.

High-end extras include airport transfers in a Rolls-Royce Ghost limousine. See more photos of the Two-Bedroom Loft
This 3,933-room Italian “villa” is the embodiment of Vegas luxury — an extravagant five-pool courtyard; formal room service; a superb fitness center and spa; the best buffet on the Strip; and attractions like the indoor botanical gardens and the famous dancing fountains. The stunning Penthouse Suites start at a whopping 1,500 square feet, and come with sprawling living and dining areas, wet bars, and whirlpool tubs. See more photos of the Penthouse Suite
A 4,004-room mega-resort, Aria stands as the shiny centerpiece of the $11 billion City Center, opened in December 2009. Everything at Aria is done on a grand scale, from the soaring ceilings to the 16 restaurants, and not at the expense of good service, either. The 2,000-square-foot Executive Hospitality Suite is one of the hotel’s most luxurious offerings, and has its own private 12-person conference room. See more photos of the Executive Hospitality Suite
