Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Quiet, elegant escape from Vegas frenzy
  • Easy access to Vegas frenzy at adjoining Mandalay Bay
  • Service is top-notch
  • Extreme poolside pampering
  • All the room gear kids need, free
  • No extra fee for fitness center

Cons

  • Rooms don't quite measure up to sumptous modern ones at Wynn, Encore, Trump, and the like
  • Tint on windows casts an odd, green glow into the rooms
  • More than half a mile from central Strip attractions
  • No casino on-site

Bottom Line

The Las Vegas outpost of this venerable luxury chain is a rare quiet refuge from the casino cacophony. Count on excellent service, stylish rooms, a serene pool, and two good restaurants. Head to the adjoining Mandalay Bay Hotel for gambling, partying, a vast pool complex, and a shark-filled aquarium.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A relaxing escape from the chaos of Las Vegas, but still very close to the action.

The pool
The pool

Drive up to the portico of the Four Seasons, past the trickling fountain and the manicured gardens, and Vegas glitz may not come to mind. Same goes when you walk by the fireplace and elegant Asian art in the wood-paneled lobby. The sedate pool could just as easily be at a Florida or Southern California resort.

That not-in-Vegas vibe, of course, is what the 424-room Four Seasons is going for. But as soon as you want the very-in-Vegas vibe, the sister property Mandalay Bay is right there, with the shows, the bars, the slot machines, and the crowded pools. The Four Seasons is actually within the Mandalay Bay hotel, but you'd never know it. The lobby and entrance are separate, and the rooms occupy their own floors. It's a quiet refuge -- but one that's steps away for the very hubbub that guests are seeking to avoid.

Since it's a Four Seasons, what the hotel is also offering is classic luxury and a doting staff. On that count, the Four Seasons gets mixed marks. The service is indeed top-notch: housekeeping comes twice a day, pool attendents swing by with fresh towels. But the Trump, another luxury property without a casino, has far bigger rooms. And travelers who want to be in Mandalay Bay can find larger suites at THEHotel, the other hotel to share the complex.

 Location

The Four Seasons is on the far southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, part of the Mandalay Bay complex, and a little removed from the action.

The Four Seasons is located within the Mandalay Bay hotel (the rooms are on the 35th to 39th floors), but the hotel has its own entrance and driveway. The Mandalay Bay complex, which also includes THEhotel, is on the southernmost end of the Strip, the densely-packed three-and-a-half-mile-long stretch of hotel-casinos. (The immediate neighborhood amounts to vacant lots, rundown motels, and strip malls.)

Most Las Vegas visitors want to explore all of the big properties along the Strip. A free tram connects the Mandalay with the Luxor and Excalibur, two Strip hotels directly to the north. It runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. The hotel provides free car service to the Strip, though some travelers report that the service isn't always available.

Cabs are easy to find at virtually any time of day or night. A generally less expensive option for traveling along the Strip is the Deuce, a double-decker bus that runs up and down the Strip 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and costs $3. There's also a monorail, which stops at MGM Grand, Bally's/Paris, Flamingo/Caesars Palace, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Hilton, and the Sahara. A single ride ticket is $5; a one-day pass is $13. If you're traveling with at least one other person, a cab is often the least-expensive option.

For a Strip hotel, the Four Seasons is especially close to McCarran International Airport. A cab could run as little as $10.

 Rooms

The comfortable rooms exude classic luxury.

Rooms are luxurious and stylish, with an almost retro vibe and bold but refined patterns in a white and gold palette. Standard rooms start at 500 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling windows the offer sweeping views of Vegas; Suites range from the basic Four Seasons Executive Suite at 810 square feet, to the Presidential Suite at 3,400 square feet.

  • Pillow-top mattresses and heavy duvets (Signature Four Seasons bedding)
  • Work desk with ergonomic chair in each room
  • Marble-heavy bathroom with separate shower and deep tub, and a separate room for the toilet and a single sink.
  • Backlit mirrors in all rooms; Suites have integrated television screens in the mirrors.
  • L'Occitane toiletries
  • 42-inch flat-screen TVs with multi-media hubs
  • DVD players on request
  • iPod docking stations
  • Pull-out sleeper sofas in all suites
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

 Features

A small pool with exemplary service; a large and bright fitness center, and a well-regarded spa.

  • The pool is surrounded by palm trees and arbors for shade, and has two whirlpools and a kids-only wading pool. Guests can be served full meals poolside.
  • Daily resort fee includes Wi-Fi through the property, fitness center access, in-room coffeemaker, choice newspaper delivery, and shoeshine service.
  • Unlike many Vegas hotels, the Four Seasons doesn't charge extra for use of the spa facilities, including the steam room, showers, and Zen relaxation lounges.
  • Free 24-hour business center with computers, audio equipment, and cell phones availble

 Family

A quiet scene, ample services, a lengthy kids' menu and great activies at the Mandalay Bay complex make the Four Seasons one of the most family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas.

Four Seasons offers families a nice mix: quiet lodgings with a staff that bends over backwards to welcome kids (from childproofing the room to spelling out your kid's name in sponge letters in the bathroom), and the lively diversions of Mandalay Bay right on the property. Cribs and rollaway beds are free, and housekeeping can drop off playpens and highchairs. If a guest orders a crib, the hotel will cover the wall sockets and add bumpers to any sharp corners too. The staff can provide coloring books, crayons, toys, games and movies, as well as arrange for a babysitter. The extensive offerings on the children's menu are broken out into "kids" and "young adults" sections, so your 14-year-old can have a veggie buritto for breakfast instead of Cheerios.

The pool may be a bit sedate for children, but no matter: Four Seasons guests can swim at Mandalay Bay's 11-acre pool complex, which includes a wave pool and a lazy river ride. Plus, Mandalay Bay is host to a shark-filled aquarium and regular performances of The Lion King.

 Pets

Pets are part of the family too at the Four Seasons -- as long as the pooch meets the weight limit.

The hotel welcomes up to two pets per room, as long as they meet their combined 25 pound weight limit. There is also a one-time chargeand for additional fees, the hotel can arrange pet sitting or other services for Fido.

 Food

Two fine restaurants on site, and many more dining options at adjacent Mandalay Bay.

Guests at Four Seasons can chose from two fine restaurants in the hotel, or walk over to one of the dozens next door at Mandalay Bay.

 Bottom Line

The Las Vegas outpost of this venerable luxury chain is a rare quiet refuge from the casino cacophony. Count on excellent service, stylish rooms, a serene pool, and two good restaurants. Head to the adjoining Mandalay Bay Hotel for gambling, partying, a vast pool complex, and a shark-filled aquarium.
