Located 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas’s city center on the fringe of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa focuses on toning down the typical Las Vegas glitz, glamour and neon lights, trying instead to blend within its desert canyon surrounds with muted color schemes of red and rust. Nonetheless, this is Las Vegas, and the Red Rock delivers with 816 spacious rooms, each with 42 inch plasma TVs, iPod docking stations, Frette linens, soaking tubs and modern furniture. For the ultimate indulgence, rent Suite One 80 which offers 180 degree panoramas overlooking the Las Vegas Valley which comes with a US$15,000 nightly price tag for the experience; or the Cherry Suite (designed after the Cherry Nightclub downstairs) with a 10-person shower situated in the middle of the bedroom. The Red Rock casino’s dazzling chandeliers have been crafted with over 3.1 million pieces of crystal, while the state-of-the-art Red Rock spa offers a relaxing Zen ambiance with eucalyptus scented air. Given its proximity to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the Red Rock Resort also offers a multitude of activities including horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking for when you’re ready to escape the casino ambiance.
