Four Seasons Las Vegas Review :  Amenities

Which brings me to the spa. This was by far my favorite part of staying at Four Seasons Las Vegas. In fact, if it weren't for the spa, I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending this place. And as a matter of fact, I didn't use the actual spa at all. I used the spa bathroom. And what a bathroom!

First of all, all Four Seasons Las Vegas guests, regardless of whether or not they have signed up for a massage or other treatments, are entitled to sign up for a locker. This is a huge convenience, saving countless trips up and down the elevators if you're spending a lot of time at the various pools.

Next, the locker rooms are decked out. Couches, chairs, free fruit, free lemon water, free blue Gatorade (I couldn't tell you what the actual flavor is- but it's free!), free razors and an assortment of toiletries in large bottles- shaving cream, after shave, mouthwash, deodorant, Tinactin, combs, brushes, other hair products- you name it.

Finally, you get free use of a eucalyptus-scented steam room. There's nothing like a good shvitz after a day at the tables.

The spa locker rooms are located near the fitness center and Four Seasons Las Vegas's private pool, which is right next to the MB pool complex but separated by a key-card activated gate. The pool itself is nothing special at all, but the attendants/waiters are exceptionally well-trained and friendly. Free of charge are cucumber slices for your eyes, little cups containing juice or fruit smoothies, Popsicles, and Evian spray (from an official Evian spray can). There is a decidedly tasty assortment of food you can order and have brought to you on wooden trays at expectedly inflated prices ($18 for a burger). You can also order very pricey foot massages involving some kind of brightly colored, waxy goop, if that's what you need to relax (though I'm told that once you order the goop, what you get isn't quite so colorful.)

As one last note, Four Seasons Las Vegas guests have use of a private entrance to the Mandalay Bay casino floor. Entrance is through a key-card activated door. The room is just a simple, coconut-scent-free lobby with a phone desk, plush couch, plants and a decorative screen, but it's another nice touch. It's a good place to wait for a friend, or take a break from the action, without having to go up to your room.

And I think that's the chief accomplishment of Four Seasons Las Vegas: not to outdo anyone in terms of conscientious style or luxury, but simply to provide a thoroughly relaxing and elegant alternative to a destination that can easily overwhelm. That and to provide something pretty rare anywhere else on the conspicuous Strip: privacy and exclusiveness. While other places, such as Wynn, provide more cutting edge and unique services, the staff at Four Seasons excels at taking the time to make you feel unique yourself. I'm sure it's primarily due to the smaller number of clientele that goes through the hotel, but you get the sense that the staff actually is interested in talking to you, in answering your questions and figuring out what will make you happy. I generally am not the person to bother employees about anything, but I actually enjoyed the conversations I had with staff, something I have absolutely no memory of enjoying at any other hotel I've stayed at.

good review - kind of underwhelming for a four seasons property (my only basis being the LA properties) but i do like the idea of a quiet secluded spot on the strip. i wonder - does it make sense though to most visitors? in other words, does this hotel have a future, given the location/trend for strip real estate...

the four seasons consistently gets five diamond/pavillion/star ratings and does pretty good business as well. honestly, i thought the rooms were underwhelming and a bit boring. however if the point is to create a 'non-strip atmosphere' as Joseph implies, then it's appropriate... as is one of his final thoughts about probably not recommending the joint to folks.
