Red Rock Casino, Resort, and Spa

Summerlin, NV

RedRockExteriorA beacon 10 miles off the Strip, Red Rock Casino, Resort, and Spa is a trendy alternative to its urban counterparts, affording travelers the chance to be a part of the Vegas lifestyle—and enjoy a billion dollar luxury resort—without feeling banished to the boondocks.  Sprawling on some 70 acres in Summerlin near the majestic Red Rock mountains (hence the name) Red Rock Casino is a superb example of a 21st century homage to the elegant desert oasis resorts of the 1950s.

The pinnacle of the Station Casinos luxury properties, the fresh, contemporary, desert-modern architecture is enhanced by the finest materials including Venetian plaster walls and gold-leafed ceilings, creating an atmosphere of comfortable elegance.   Every detail, from the 3.1 million crystals in the colossal chandeliers to the miles-long stretch of onyx-adorned walls, is an inviting blend of warmth and contemporary design punctuated by rich reds, golds and browns—a color palette inspired by the nearby mountain range.

800 guest rooms and suites are available, from a 525 square foot standard room up to the mammoth 6,500 square foot penthouse-level suite, making the guest rooms at Red Rock some of the largest and most lavish in Las Vegas. Standard room features include 42” high-definition plasma televisions, Bose sound system with iPod connectivity, guest robes and slippers, in-room martini bar and a 15” LCD television in the bathroom.

 

SIDEBAR: Crème de la crème

There’s something about a room that bears its own name.  It just has to be good.  If you’re in the mood to splurge, Red Rock’s penthouse-level suites perched on the top floor of the hotel tower were designed to offer the ultimate in luxury.

 

One 80: Named for the breathtaking 180-degree view that includes both the iconic Strip and the majestic Red Rock mountain range, the 6,500 square foot suite is designed in the style of a contemporary ultra-lounge. The suite includes an expansive entertaining area, complete with a massive bar, 103-inch plasma-screen TV, billiards table, dining table and multiple seating areas; a large terrace that includes a Jacuzzi-style hot tub and rotating sofa; and two bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms and private balconies.

 

Canyon: Designed to be a cool and refreshing natural antidote to the heat of the surrounding desert, floor-to-ceiling windows in every room of the 4,000-square-foot suite provide majestic views of Red Rock Canyon, its namesake.  Awash in shades of green, the suite offers a spacious entertaining area featuring a rotating sofa, large bar, dining table and seating area; two bedrooms each with an in-room Jacuzzi-style bathtub, adjoining bathroom and private balcony; and an exclusive massage room for spa treatments.
