  2. Jeff Zalaznick:

    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.

    It was his first cruise and it sounded like she had done a few and she said were on our honeymoon and so were going to do an excursion at every port stop. And I mentioned to them this was my 105th cruise on Royals so we started talking, conversing and I didnt see them in the lounge last night and there were rumors that there were honeymoon couples on White Island and you just showed me one of the news footage with their picture of their wedding and it confirmed that it was them, you never know, your life changes in a moment so, life is short.

  4. Wendy Harrison:

    We thought we would do some decorating as it hasnt been touched for years. We started in the lounge and then decided we would do the bar as well. As we began to take off the wallpaper we saw a picture. We noticed that it went all the way around the pub. It would be nice to have some more information on George Cole and the piece, we think he's local but we've got no information on him.

  5. Amber Freda:

    Stylistically, you want to pick up on colors and textures that tie the two spaces together, make it more than just a couple of chairs and a dining table. A plain dining table with wooden chairs won’t entice you to use it very much, but really comfortable lounge seating will.
