Over-the-top bathrooms: Where to cleanse your sins in Sin City(4 of 12)

 The Spa Tower Suite bathrooms feature dark marble, Jacuzzi tubs, gold fixtures and lots of glass.
The Hard Rock is off the Strip, but it knows how to throw a party. The 1,300-square-foot Celebrity Suite has a phenomenal marble bathroom, complete with Jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower. A new breed of Las Vegas luxury, with 392 elegant rooms and some of Vegas' best service, the Mandarin Oriental is a quiet haven on the glitzy Strip. Every room comes with a stunning stunning light-and-dark-marble bathroom and freestanding tub. For the price, the Golden Nugget is a steal, provided you don't mind staying in Vegas' older downtown neighborhood instead of the newer, livelier Strip. In exchange for giving up the prime location, guests can enjoy clean, well-appointed rooms, excellent service -- and a top-notch pool complete with a shark tank. Rush Tower, opened in November 2009, is home to beautiful suites with big, decadent bathrooms. The Spa Tower Suite bathrooms feature dark marble, Jacuzzi tubs, gold fixtures and lots of glass. Big, elaborate, and packed with the kind of luxuries you see at the Bellagio and the Wynn, the Palazzo has some of the best and biggest standard rooms on The Strip. Its world-class spa, seven pools, busy casino, and name-brand fine dining all connect to its sister property, the Venetian, via an haute couture mall. Less theme-y than many Vegas hotels, but right at the top of the list in terms of glitz and extravagance. Its marble bathrooms start at about 130 square feet -- larger than the entire room at some New York City hotels. The bathroom in this Sienna Suite, for example, is large enough to host a very intimate cocktail party. Rooms come stocked with plenty of soft towels, and Agraria San Francisco bath products. Like the Paris and New York-New York hotels, the 5,030-room Venetian is an enormous and extravagant tribute to a place far from the desert, complete with gondola rides and a replica of Saint Mark's Square. Compared to the other theme-driven Vegas properties, the Venetian distinguishes itself with enormous guest rooms, a world-class spa, and more than a dozen premier restaurants. The bathrooms at the Venetian have plenty of mirrors, gold accents, plush vanities, twin sinks, and flat-screen TVs. Deep soaking tubs and separate showers are standard in every room. Although all of the bathrooms in the Venetian are impressive, but the Prima Suite bathroom features an exceptionally large Jacuzzi tub. 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. Its classy bathrooms (like this one, in the Deluxe Room) feature floral wallpaper, ceramic pottery, and dark wood vanites. The Encore's giant rooms one-up even the Wynn's (Encore's sister next door) and include such snazzy features as bedside curtain control, beautiful design, and enormous, stately bathrooms. A hipper, quieter sister to the attached Mandalay Bay, THEhotel attracts a younger crowd that prefers urban chic to ornate luxury. This bathroom in THEsuite (the base-level room at THEhotel) has black marble showers and dark wood cabinets. Remote-controlled drapes in the giant rooms, eight premier restaurants, an 18-hole golf course -- the 2,716-room Wynn is one of the Strip's most extravagant luxury hotels. The huge bathrooms include deep tubs, glass-walled showers, double sinks, and separate toilet rooms. Complimentary products include moisturizer (it is the desert, after all); cotton swabs; a shoe-polishing kit; and soap, shampoo, and conditioner from Desert Bamboo. Even in the standard room, the Studio Suite, you can flip through channels on a 13-inch bathroom flat-screen TV embedded in the bathroom mirror while soaking in this enormous Jacuzzi tub.
