Las Vegas with kids
Vegas with kids? It really shouldn’t be a question any longer. Since the recession in 2008, Las Vegas has certainly worked hard at implementing family-friendly activities along the strip. With a little research, you can find something for everybody in your family to enjoy. This is certainly great news for those travelers who wish to visit Sin City with their children. With a variety of hotels to choose from, selecting where to stay with children can be very overwhelming. Do you want to be at a specific location on the strip? Do you want a particular themed hotel to be your resting place for a few nights? Or do you want a smoke free environment, a place where you can deeply breathe in and relax after a day of seeing the sights of Las Vegas?
A Smoke-free hotel
For our family, we chose to go with the later. In most hotels across America, it is easy to find a smoke free hotel, but this is not the case in Las Vegas, with only a few options available on the strip.
The Four Seasons Las Vegas
We found the perfect place to stay for families in Las Vegas. The Four Seasons Las Vegas will blow you away, I’m certain of it. Not only does it have the same impeccable taste that The Four Seasons is known for, but it also has the added luxury of being a hidden hotel within a hotel.
Best hotel for families
The tiny details from the child-size robes to the tiny teddy bears, every kid feels extra special being greeted by a new tiny loved one and a chance to lounge around as the adults do! The rooms are also sourced with a wonderful white noise machine, sleeping sound is guaranteed.
And ask about the extra details you can add to your stay! Our children absolutely loved the tent, glow sticks and bucket of popcorn that the staff left as a surprise for us!
The Four Seasons Las Vegas is the first hotel on the strip, the entrance is located right next to Mandalay Bay. The foyer and lobby are classy and casino free. You feel as if you’ve entered a quiet desert oasis, which is ironic when you consider how loud and bright the cement city built around it actually is. The absence of a casino runs much deeper than just the scene of gambling and eccentric carpeting, you also get to take away cocktail servers in scantily clad outfits and the staring down from gentleman in oversized suits, reminding you that your children are not truly welcome to make themselves at home.
The Four Seasons has its own private pool, two restaurants located adjacent to the lobby which has an additional coffee shop and bakery. Once you head down the hallway to the golden elevators, you’re secretly transported to one of five floors within the iconic golden building of The Mandalay Bay. These floors can only be accessed through The Four Seasons elevators and the privacy factor was a huge bonus.
Plus access to Mandalay Bay
You do have access to The Mandalay Bay via The Four Seasons elevators, the casino level is accessed through a private door for you BECAUSE a stay at The Four Seasons gives you access to all of Mandalay Bay’s facilities. This gives your family access to two other pools, hot tubs, a lazy river, and a wave pool. Truly, you could book a stay here and never need to leave the premises.
We absolutely are sold on staying here every time we visit Vegas. We have stayed at many different places along the strip, even one other non-smoking resort and nothing compares. It is not just our favorite hotel in Las Vegas, but also one of our favorites ever, anywhere.
