Las Vegas is one of the best places to splurge and really get the full VIP experience. Almost every Vegas experience can be enhanced, whether you’re getting special passes to a show or upgrade your room to a penthouse suite. If you’re in town to live large, see some of the best ways to really upgrade your trip to Las Vegas and have a VIP vacation you’ll never forget.
Going to the casino is exciting enough, but if you’re wanting to be a high roller, you can certainly upgrade your Las Vegas casino experience. Some casinos offer high limit gaming areas for you to bet big and potentially win big. You should also keep your eye out for secret bars that pop up and make you feel like even more of a VIP as you sip on your casino drink. The best way to upgrade your casino experience, however, is by signing up for a players club that helps you earn benefits the more you play.
Each Las Vegas casino players club is unique, but benefits for being a member usually range between items such as free slot play, members-only events, room upgrades, exclusive discounts, priority access to amenities, dining comps, complimentary transportation, early access to entertainment, and more. On top of hotel, dining, transportation, and entertainment benefits, the Club One players club offers VIP casino benefits such as special offers for gaming when you play at Golden Gate, the D, and Circa casinos, comp dollars, free slot play from slot points, invitations to members-only events, cash back, and a VIP line for the sportsbook.
When you’re staying in Vegas for a luxury vacation, you’re going to want to upgrade your room. While booking your room, check to see which options are available, as many hotels offer suites and even penthouses. These rooms have limited quantities compared to standard rooms, so booking in advance will help ensure you get the best option. These room upgrades typically come with enhanced room amenities, better views, more space, additional beds, a living room, a wet bar, and sometimes even your own outdoor space. They’re great choices for hosting if you have a group of friends, or if you simply want to live large on your own.
The Golden Gate Las Vegas penthouses include spacious layouts with two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, plush living areas with three giant flat-screen TVs, an island bar, and a kitchen area. The penthouses also include a large outdoor patio with comfortable lounge seating, a state-of-the-art gas grill, wall-mounted fireplace, full wet bar, and 50-inch flat-screen TV. You’ll feel like you have a luxury home away from home with this VIP experience.
Pools in Las Vegas already feel like VIP experiences compared to regular pools, but upgrading your experience can make it feel like even more of a special time. Once at a pool, you’ll likely find a number of free lounge chairs, but the real treat comes when you book your very own cabana. At Circa Stadium Swim®, your very own private cabana can host a group of up to 12 where everyone can enjoy a 65″ TV, towel service, private security, a VIP restroom, and a dedicated VIP server. Bonus: They keep you shaded in the summer and cozy in the winter.
You can also upgrade your Vegas pool experience by attending an event. Many pools host pool parties, or you can find exciting watch parties for big sporting events. You can also upgrade your tickets to these, getting you more space for your crew, closer to the action, and access to more amenities.
Getting a VIP experience at a restaurant means knowing what to order – or sometimes just trusting the chef. With so many incredible chefs in the city, if there is a tasting menu or chef-recommended items, try them out for a unique experience. If not, don’t be afraid to explore the menu on your own and try something new or something over-the-top like a delicious 32 oz tomahawk steak at Andiamo Steakhouse. Don’t stop your menu upgrades there. Las Vegas bars are some of the best places to find top-of-the-line alcohol, like the extensive wine list at Barry’s Downtown Prime or the impressive whiskey selection at the Legacy Club rooftop bar.
Using rideshare or the tram are both great ways to get around town, but if you’re looking to upgrade your experience to a VIP one, why not upgrade your ride too? There are many private drivers around the city, including limo drivers if you and the crew really want to arrive in style. Upgrading your car can also help you get places quicker, as you won’t be waiting for others to catch their rides first. If you really want to go big with transportation, while it isn’t a way to get around town, you can take a VIP helicopter ride over the city to see all the lights below.
Vegas is known for its stellar entertainment, from acrobatic wonders like Cirque du Soleil to incredible music festivals like Life is Beautiful. Not every show will have VIP options, but check the ticketing sites to see if you can get closer seats, access to VIP areas like bars and bathrooms, expedited entry, or any other perks the venue might offer. Having these upgraded perks will make your show even better and will allow you to enjoy it more completely without having to wait in larger crowds – and get you closer to the acts you want to see.
As you’re planning your next trip, you should really consider treating yourself to a luxury Las Vegas VIP vacation. With so many ways to upgrade your stay, you can tailor it to your tastes and really live large. Luxury rooms, casino perks, extravagant meals, private cabanas, and more all await you so you can live the true life of a VIP.
