  1. Chaise

    A chaise, sometimes called chay or shay, is a light two- or four-wheeled traveling or pleasure carriage, with a folding hood or calash top for one or two people. The name came from the French chair, through a transference from a sedan-chair to a wheeled vehicle. In the winter of 1791/92, in the opening phases of the French Revolution, Henrietta Ponsonby, Countess of Bessborough, noted the lack of ostentation in the streets of Paris, where a few drove themselves about in "little open chaises like the cabriolet but with one horse." The two-wheeled version, usually of a chair-backed type, for one or two persons, also called a gig or one-horse shay, had a body hung on leather straps or thorough-braces and was usually drawn by one horse; a light chaise having two seats was a double chair. The term chaise-cart was used for a light carriage fitted with suspension, used for transporting lightweight goods. The post-chaise was a fast carriage for traveling post in the 18th and early 19th centuries. It usually had a closed body on four wheels, sat two to four persons, and was drawn by two or four horses. The driver, especially when there was no coachman, rode postillion on the near horse of a pair or of one of the pairs attached to the post-chaise.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Chaise

    shāz, n. a light open carriage for one or more persons: a travelling carriage (see Post-chaise).—adj. Chaise′less.—n. Chaise-longue, a couch. [Fr., a Parisian pronunciation of chaire. See Chair.]

    Nick McCabe said. The city’s hotels, meanwhile, are making big moves to accommodate the increasing numbers of luxury consumers. Last month, Aria introduced a luxury collection called The Tower Suites. Guests travel to and from the airport in limousines, they’re greeted at curbside and there is a dedicated entrance and private VIP lounge for speedy check-in. As soon as guests book a stay, the Tower Suites concierge reaches out to book dinner reservations and arrange show tickets. 5 best shows to see in Las Vegas This fall, Encore at the Wynn completed a design refresh, updating all suites to include push-button electronic amenities. It added custom linens and floor coverings and commissioned an amenities collection from top-of-the-line cosmetics and fragrance company Molton Brown. Meanwhile, Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a $ 75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which will be renamed the Julius Tower next month. While the behemoth resorts expand their luxury offerings, smaller boutique properties that offer a more intimate upscale experience have been opening. Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace debuted in 2013, and Delano Las Vegas and Delano Las Vegas opened last year. One of the smallest hotels, the Parisian-themed The Cromwell, opened last year with only 188 rooms, all with hardwood floors, glamorous boudoir lighting and chaise lounges. Guests are invited to a Moet Chandon toast with the general manager on Friday and Saturday nights. Ultra luxury packages at new Drai’s offer fireworks and private jets But Vegas ’ biggest draw might be its endless bounty of celebrity chef-driven restaurants. Recent eateries from boldfaced names in an already saturated market include three-Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse’s Rivea at Delano Las Vegas, two-Michelin-starred Julian Serrano’s Lago at Bellagio and two-Michelin-starred Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie at Aria. Two popular restaurants from other cities have just opened outposts in Delano Las Vegas. In October, the New York City hot spot Carbone( whose fans include Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian) opened at Aria. Just like New York, Delano Las Vegas is Delano Las Vegas. We try to differentiate ourselves by not only serving excellent food but by creating a unique experience.
