Four seasons questions

It seems pretty out of the way. Is it that luxurious and what do you get complimentary that other places don't give you. I hear the pool is very nice but smaller.

Are there ever any promotions or what is a good price for that hotel?

The pool is small but perfectly adequate for a hotel with around 400 rooms. Comparing it to properties ten times that size isn't really relevant. Definitely the most relaxing pool in LV in my opinion.

Spa access is free to guests as are the various treats you get at the pool. And a car with driver is available for guests' use for the cost of the tip. Other than that you get a level of service and attention to detail that's impossible for larger resorts to match. Location is fine for me but then I'm a fan of Mandalay Bay and THEhotel. Being close to center Strip is a huge deal for some people, way less so for others.

It's been a few years since I was there so I'm not certain how rates are right now. There used to be frequent stay two nights and get a third free offers on the FS website.

And don't forget whilst the pool is slightly smaller you can get access at any time of the day to loungers etc and where else will you get evian misted, frozen choccies, jugs of iced water etc - also if you need a bigger pool you can use the Mandalay Bay pools. We walked from Palazzo one night in July - wouldn't neccasarily recommend this but doable. Tram links Mandalay with Excalibur and then you could cross over to MGM to pick up the Tram - however we found this a total pain given how far back it is and taxis are definately the way to go.

Four Seasons is absolutely lovely. The level is service is incredible, and to me, the extra attention and luxury is worth the corresponding cost. The pool is quiet and relaxing, but you have easy access to the pool at Mandalay Bay if you decide you want a bigger, more chaotic pool.

The rooms at Four Seasons have the highly valued coffee maker!

The rates in Las Vegas have gone up this year, especially on the higher end. So you won't find the promotions at Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental like last year. I've been watching Four Seasons rates for more than a month, and it seems $180 is now the rock bottom price.

WOW; compared to the incredulous rates at Caesars and Bellagio, 180 seems reasonable. That is bizarre that their rates can dip that low. Is that just buy looking on their website or email promos? I may look at this a little more. We will have a car because of work; I think many of the places on the strip will park for free with tipping the valet, so we could do that one night and get to the other end. Thoughts?

Marketing in Las Vegas is done by the casinos, not by the hotels. Four Seasons doesn't have a casino, so basically there are no promos, and the best rate will be found on their own website.

The last couple of years I've stayed at both Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental for $150 a night. But those aren't the rates today. And the $180 is the lowest rate, but is not available for all dates.

IMHO without player club discounts or promos, Bellagio and Caesars are the two most over-priced hotels in Las Vegas. And Four Seasons certainly provides better value.

I'm not sure what you are asking. I do believe that the FS charges for their valet parking, if that's a concern I'd park at MB and just make the short walk, I wouldn't park at another hotel on the Strip like you seem to be asking...are you thinking of then taking a taxi to the FS?

FYI - to get to your FS room, it is actually closer to valet at Mandalay Bay and walk to FS elevators than it is to valet at FS.

OK; makes sense. Is the Mandalay Bay free parking? I meant to say that we will have a car to get to the other end of the strip if we want to do dinner and some strolling and shopping and don't want to schlep bags (and ourselves after a few drinks) back to the hotel.

I am starting to lean towards this place. We are not heavy gamblers and adore the pools at Bellagio and Caesar's too, but feel that it is a little crazy. Having said that, if I can get a room at Four Seasons for the same as a a Palace Room, what would you choose - it will be the end of October if that helps.

Parking is free at MB other than tips if you use valet.

You'll need some luck to have pool weather at the end of October. For me the pool is one of the main reasons to stay at the FS, if not THE main reason.

I'd only personally stay there when pool weather is going to be guaranteed.
