Best Luxury Hotel Rooms(2 of 98)

 The 130-square-foot bathroom has marble detailing, twin sinks, and a soaking tub.
At approximately 650 square feet, the standard rooms at the Venetian are among the largest on the Strip. Each room contains a bedroom separated by an elegant railing from the sunken living room. Floor-to-ceiling windows, three flat-screen TVs, king-size pillow-top beds dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets, and huge L-shaped sofas in the living rooms combine to create a feel of opulence. The 130-square-foot bathroom has marble detailing, twin sinks, and a soaking tub. Cottages are at the far right end of the property and have one or two bedrooms, TVs, Wi-Fi, and some even have their own kitchens and plunge pools overlooking the sea. Some of the property's one- and two-bedroom cottages come with private plunge pools overlooking the ocean. The standard rooms at the Encore are far from standard. Each 700- to 745-square-foot Resort Suite includes a living room and bedroom divided by a half-wall, on top of which sits a huge, rotating flat-screen TV that can be viewed from either space. You could easily host a small party in the bathroom alone. Deco-style lamps, hound's-tooth walls, blond wood credenzas, and mirrors that span the entire wall (including alongside the bed) evoke a sort of swinging bachelor pad circa 1945. The beds are nothing short of amazing. Half Moon offers eight different types of rooms and suites, in addition to private villas. Stylish island decor with bright accents define this Imperial Suite. The Imperial Suite has a bedroom, separate living room, over-size bathroom, and a sprawling patio overlooking the ocean. All bathrooms we saw at Half Moon, like the rooms, were decorated differently, but all were classy, clean, and unbelievably big. This Junior Suite has an open floor plan that connects the bedroom to the living room without a wall inbetween. The Hibiscus Suite has a remarkable ocean-view terrace on which guests can eat breakfast or recline on lounge chairs. The standard intercoastal rooms at this suburban beach hotel average 740 square feet -- about three times the size of most Art Deco boutique hotel rooms in South Beach. The rooms are roomy, if a bit overdone -- busy frame molding, heavily patterned plush carpets, and cream leather headboards. With a touch of the remote control, a 38-inch flat-screen TV rises from a leather cabinet at the foot of the bed. With another touch of the remote, it rotates 360 degrees. This resort has only five extremely private abodes surrounded by dense flora. The Ska suite, seen here, is modern on the inside with stark white, minimalist d├ęcor, slate showers, and the most high-tech entertainment system in Jamaica. It's rustic on the outside: extensive terraces surrounded by banana and ackee fruit trees, stone paths, and neighboring roosters. Sanwood, the hotel's three-bedroom villa, features a small, private swimming pool and sundeck, a private Apple desktop, some tiny bedrooms (each with their own bathroom), and a large common living area. The Drum and Bass Suite is attached to the recording studio and boasts a direct view of the sea. Bathrooms in the resort's five suites have slate showers and the Geejam's own high-quality herbal bath products. This bathroom in the Drum and Bass Suite features a free-standing Philippe Starck bathtub. Dark teak floors, a built-in couch with ash-colored microfiber cushions, a black granite soaking tub, and a heavy, brown Oriental rug had me make guests feel more like they're in a grand hotel in Hong Kong or Singapore than in a beach hotel. Rooms here are defined not only by their sharp decor, but extra goodies as well: chocolate, fruit, a Lavazza espresso machine, and cookies at turndown. Designed to have a Victorian-parlor-meets-sugar-plantation aesthetic, the guest rooms -- like everything else at the Grand Wailea -- are 'grand'. Luxury is in the details: from the single orchid and greeting card placed on the bed during the nightly turndown service to the soft waffle-weave robes in the closet. The large, marble-tiled bathrooms include a soaking tub and a separate shower that has a large showerhead and powerful water pressure, and bath products from Spa Grande's signature line, including honey-mango-scented soap, shampoo, conditioner, body gel, and lotion. Roomy balconies come with cushioned recliner seats and ottomans; views range from the mountains to the resort gardens to the ocean. Hip midcentury-inspired ultramodern design, wall-to-wall windows that flood the space with light and allow for panoramic views of the city, comfy beds, and gigantic minibars add up to some of the most extraordinary rooms in the city. Half the rooms at the Regent Bal Harbour are 510-square-foot studios, like the one seen here, which feature wet bars and 72-square-foot balconies. And then there's the bathrooms, without a doubt the best in South Florida. Whether you have a studio or a suite, you'll have access to the largest, grandest, most pimped-out bathroom this side of the Everglades. Among the highlights: free-standing tubs, walk-in showers with rainforest showerheads, and 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows. The immaculate, top-of-the-line condo units -- all outfitted with high-tech full kitchens, spacious bathrooms, and comfortable beds -- are among the most luxurious on the island. Rooms here are one- or two-bedroom condos. All have comfortable beds with Simmons Beautyrest World Class Innerspring mattresses. Full kitchens boast granite countertops and high-tech brands: Wolf stove and oven, Sub-Zero fridge, and GE Profile microwave. All bathrooms, like this one in the two-bedroom suite, include a separate whirlpool tub and shower. Rooms here have an innovative, pan-global vintage-opulent design. The bright, beach-tone color palate and organic textures (even a thriving orchid) definitely feel more comfortable than the austere looks at the other design-focused hotels like the Setai or Delano. All rooms have a perfect ocean view beyond Ocean Drive. The Caribbean-chic decor includes a sisal rug, a plush white linen loveseat and wingback chair, modern artwork, and a mahogany four-poster bed topped with Frette sateen linens. A large window separates the bathroom from the bedroom, allowing guests to watch TV from the massive Jacuzzi. (Blinds can be lowered to give more privacy.) There's also a separate marble walk-in shower, his and her sinks, a dressing area, and a separate toilet room. All of the rooms at the Four Seasons -- like this standard room -- combine the chain's trademark beige with welcome island-style accents like woven dark-wood desk chairs, a picture of a shell necklace on the wall, and, for kids, a fun stuffed lizzard. Bathrooms have separate showers and deep tubs, a choice of six genres of music to play, two Turkish robes, L'Occitane en Provence toiletries, and 100-percent-cotton custom towels by Sobel Westex. Plus, all rooms include a large balcony. Views range from mountainside -- overlooking Wailea Avenue -- to garden view, partial ocean, and ocean view; the view of the sunset over the ocean is worth the upgrade. All rooms include a 42-inch plasma flat-panel TV with a DVD player and 55 channels, including HBO and international news. Even in the standard room with a king-size bed, the sofa folds out into an additional bed. Refurbished in 2005, the rooms have a fresh look that's more "modern American" than "traditional Hawaiian" -- taupe carpets; paisley curtains; pastel watercolor paintings. But with modernity you also get some solid improvements, like a comfy bed with a down duvet and down pillows and a 32-inch flat-screen TV. High quality, mandarin-and-mint scented soap, shampoo, and conditioner from Bliss spa And because the resort was built on Black Rock, the ocean-view rooms have the most incredible views in all of Kaanapali. Confined by the framework of the original hotel, Koa Kea's rooms are a tad smaller than those at the Grand Hyatt, but they are much more stylish, and have a few more luxury amenities, including a 42-inch flat-screen TV and an easy-to-use espresso machine. The beds are extraordinarily comfortable: pillow-topped Simmons Beautyrest mattress covered in a thick featherbed, Anichini Egyptian cotton sheets, a white-goose down duvet, and four oversize down pillows. The sleek, boutique-style interiors extend into the marble-tile bathroom, which include exceptional L'Occitane bath products, Turkish cotton towels, and waffle-knit bathrobes. But only the deluxe rooms and suites (not the standard rooms) have soaking tubs. This premium oceanfront junior suite is more like an apartment than a hotel room. With a desk area, a two-couch sitting area, a picture window, a giant bed, a comfortable balcony, and private plunge pool, the huge and modern rooms are what make Sivory. After $180 million of renovations completed in 2008, the 463 rooms and suites at the Ritz-Carlton still feel freshly unwrapped. New technology includes a 37-inch, LG flat-screen TV, a DVD player, and an iPod-docking alarm clock in every room. Plus, unlike most resorts in Hawaii, all rooms also have free high-speed Wi-Fi. As is typical in Hawaii, there are no prestocked minibars, but guests can order specific items to be placed in their empty mini-fridges; coffeemaker and bottled water provided. New bathrooms have marble floors and counters, a separate shower and bathtub, and hotel-brand toiletries. Earth-tone stripes and florals are paired perfectly in this Mountain Lanai Room. The enormous, well-appointed bathrooms have soaking tubs, walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads, and bath products by Floris of London. The charming living room in the Koko Head Suite is flooded with natural light. Steering clear of standard Hawaiian florals and polyester blankets, rooms at Hotel Renew stand out for their sophisticated, urban design. Bathrooms at Hotel Renew are sleek and modern, adding to the rooms' overall bachelor-pad feel. All 413 units at the Fairmont are multiroom suites, and they're massive -- the standard suites, modestly called "Moderate Suites," are larger than the standard rooms of the neighboring Four Seasons and Grand Wailea. Each suite features one king or two double beds with pillow-tops and down comfortors, plus a living room with a reasonably comfortable, sectional pullout couch. A wraparound balcony and full ocean views (whether you're on the balcony or inside the room) are what set the Kilohana Signature Suite apart from the other rooms. Huge, well-designed bathrooms (like this one in a Fairmont Deluxe Suite) have double sinks, a bathtub, a separate shower, and a separate powder room. Miller Harris toiletries and a separate care kit are provided. Hardwood floors, throw rugs, and mix-and-match furnishings give this Partial Ocean View Suite a homey feel. Bathrooms are bright, cheery, and spacious. Fully equipped kitchens come with GE appliances, including a fridge and dishwasher. A blender and rice cooker are among the handy extras. Red and gold wallpaper and a Florentine-pattern olive carpet create a striking effect in the Historic Wing room. Mix-and-match colors, florals, and stripes all work together beautifully in the recently renovated Historic Wing room. The large, luxurious bathroom has a stand-alone shower, deep-soaking tub, plush rug, and marble vanity -- plus a guest bathrobe. Like the rest of the hotel, rooms are understated, decorated with only white and other neutral tones. Sleek, urban design characterizes the rooms at Mandalay Bay's all-suite THEhotel annex. Each 725-square-foot standard guest room has a living area and a bedroom. The beds are heavenly, with pillow-top mattresses, high-thread-count sheets, and heavy, silken comforters. The chic living room features a 42-inch flat-screen TV. Each suite has two bathrooms, one half and one full; the full one has a deep tub and glass-sided shower with dark marble walls, and a marble vanity with twin sinks. Their size alone would put the rooms at the Palazzo near the top of our list -- the fact that every square inch is filled with sumptuous finishings, thoughtful touches, and state-of-the-art electronics lands it at number one. Even standard rooms here measure 720 square feet. Each contains a bedroom and a sunken living room. The latter features L-shaped, crushed-velvet sofas that open up to full-size beds. Art Deco-inspired decor adds to the luxurious yet tasteful ambience. The king-size, pillow-top beds are dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets and topped with wool throws. Rooms feature three -- yes, three -- flat-screen TVs: a 32-incher in the living room, a 42-incher in the bedroom, and a 20-incher in the bathroom. The bathrooms -- which, at 130 square feet, are larger than some entire New York City hotel rooms -- come with deep soaking tubs and twin sink basins, plenty of soft towels, and Agraria San Francisco bath products. Plenty of space, a high-concept Rockwell design, flat-screen TVs in the bathrooms, and Frette linens make even the standard rooms luxurious. There's an open closet built into the wall, a desk area with a series of vertical shelves, and a 29-inch Sharp Aquos flat-screen TV across from the oh-so-comfortable king bed. Even cooler, there's a small LCD TV in the bathroom next to the sink. The Alex hotel targets extended-stay business travelers, so 130 of the hotel's 203 rooms are suites that include luxe amenities like Poggenpohl kitchens, Sub-Zero refrigerators, and Miele dishwashers. The two-bedroom penthouse suite is 800 square feet. Rooms at the MGM Grand's all-suite luxury offshoot are among the most luxurious in Sin City. Junior Suites are about 500 square feet -- big enough to accommodate a small family, using the pullout couch -- and include a kitchenette along one wall. The bathroom features a small TV above the marble vanity and bath amenities by June Jacobs. The technology is top of the line as well: The flatscreen TV gets about 50 channels (some in HD), an iPod player is at your disposal, and all rooms have Wi-Fi. Starting at about 600 square feet, the standard Resort Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that offer amazing views of either the Strip or the 18-hole golf course behind the hotel. As at the Wynn's adjoining property, the Encore, the curtains can be operated by a switch near the bed -- that way there's less of a reason to rise from the sinfully comfortable king-size Wynn Dream Bed by Sealy. The sophisticated, understated decor tastefully counterbalances the room's flashier features: Even the 515-square-foot standard Studio Suite has a marble shower, a Jacuzzi tub, and two flat-screen TVs. The cradle-you-to-sleep bed has a Stearns and Foster mattress covered with pricey 500-thread-count Bellino sheets, a soft featherbed, a thick down comforter, and extra-large down pillows. The Bellagio's 510-square-foot standard King Rooms are wonderful in many ways, but the Italian marble bathrooms, with black granite countertops and deep soaking tubs, may be the highlight. Thick, oversize towels are everywhere -- around the shower, the tub, even folded into the sheet drawers. You could pile them up and happily go to sleep there -- if the real beds weren't so comfortable. Loft rooms, the standard rooms at the Gramercy Park Hotel, are huge (370 to 440 square feet) and have a bold design that blends old-world elegance with a boho chic that's heavy on velvet. The big Louis XIV-style rooms were all renovated in 2008 with luxurious Italian bedding and 37-inch HD plasma TVs, but some of the views are weak -- very few rooms overlook Central Park. The gigantic bathroom comes with fixtures plated in 24-karat gold -- but not all name-brand toiletries. Massive (rooms start at 420 square feet), thoroughly modern rooms with elegant Asian decor, high-tech electronics, and bathrooms that include small flat-screen TVs. Beds have pillow-top mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets by Fili D'oro. Addition perks include a yoga mat and books labeled "Bedside Reading" -- like an ironic pairing of 'The Great Gatsby' and 'Warren Buffet and the Interpretation of Financial Statements'. Guests are even encouraged to take the books home. Completely renovated in 2008, The New York Palace's standard rooms are large (360 square feet), and have all the essential comforts -- sateen bed linens and plush, pillow-top mattresses; a 42-inch Panasonic flat-screen TV; an iPod hookup on the alarm clock; and a quality minibar. But the Towers Royal Suites (pictured here) are decorated in a lavish, gilded style unlike any other New York hotel room. Small details -- the antique, doily-like fabric draped over the backs of the chairs, the wainscoted ceiling, the brass fixtures, the Villeroy & Boch sink, and the pencils and par avion envelopes in the desk drawer -- make the Bowery's rooms shine, though they start at a fairly average size (220 square feet). Rooms are luxurious, without being adventurous. Starting at 500 square feet -- some of the largest standard rooms anywhere in New York -- the Four Seasons' rooms come with excellent beds, high-powered, two-head showers, large desks, and plush seating. Plus, the rooms on higher floors take in substantial daylight from large windows -- no small feat in skyscraper-riddled Midtown East. The Ace's small rooms -- standard rooms start at a mere 140 square feet -- feature custom artwork on the walls, making each room different. The brainy design takes a cue from the building's industrial surroundings; accents like garment racks, for example, are made of repurposed plumbing pipes fitted with black metal shelves. Dark, industrial notes aside, funky elements like turntables, blank sheet music, and cozy Pendleton wool bed covers made in Portland, Oregon, are a nod to the hotel's Northwest roots. For ecological reasons, the shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are in large pump dispensers, like those found at a health club -- but it's high-quality stuff from co-owner Alex Calderwood's Rudy's Barbershop. Rooms at the Thompson LES start at a comfortable 300 square feet -- larger than most New York boutique hotel rooms -- and the sleek, faux-industrial design includes floor-to-ceiling windows and a backlit black-and-white Lee Friedlander photograph on the headboard. Because the hotel towers over the surrounding buildings, all rooms will have good views -- and you can watch the sunset from those on the west side of the building.
