Fontainebleau Hotel and Resort: A New Era of Luxury

Perched magnificently on the north end of the Strip, the Fontainebleau stands tall at 68 stories, making it a towering presence in the Las Vegas skyline. This architectural marvel spans over 25 acres, offering a vast playground for luxury and entertainment. With 3,780 guest rooms, it’s an impressive sight, promising an experience that’s both grand and intimate.

The resort’s design exudes the elegance and sophistication akin to its sister property in Miami Beach. Marrying old-world charm with modern luxury, the Fontainebleau is a fresh addition to Las Vegas, setting a new standard for high-end travel experiences. It stands toe-to-toe with the biggest names in the hospitality industry, ensuring every guest feels like a VIP.

Indulge in Luxury at Our Guest Rooms: A Luxurious Retreat

Our meticulously designed guest rooms are a true testament to the resort's unwavering dedication to luxury. Each room is generously spacious, exquisitely sleek and effortlessly stylish, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows that perfectly frame breathtaking views of the city's vibrant neon lights.

During our stay on the 58th floor, we enjoyed unparalleled views of the glittering strip and the iconic Las Vegas Sphere. Not to mention the midnight fireworks show on the strip for New Year’s Eve. The beds, adorned with plush linens, offered exceptional comfort, ensuring restful sleep was the cornerstone of our unforgettable vacation experience.

Diverse Dining Options at the Resort

The dining options at Fontainebleau Las Vegas offer a diverse and luxurious culinary experience. The resort features a collection of signature fine dining and casual eateries, catering to a wide range of tastes and preferences. From upscale steakhouses to cozy brasseries and French patisseries, there is a variety of flavors and atmospheres to explore. Additionally, the resort has a bustling food hall “The Promenade” with seven unique venues, allowing guests to sample global flavors. For those preferring to dine in the comfort of their rooms, the resort also provides extensive in-room dining options.

During our stay, we had an exceptional meal at Mother Wolf. This restaurant is known for its exquisite Italian cuisine, offering a menu that beautifully blends traditional flavors with a modern twist. The ambiance was both elegant and welcoming, creating the perfect setting for an unforgettable dining experience. In the promenade we had fresh bagels in the morning from El Bagel with fresh hand rolled bagels and pizza for lunch from Miami Slice, I had the pepperoni with hot honey!

Entertainment Galore

Entertainment options are plentiful at the Fontainebleau. From the LIV theater hosting top-tier performances to the sprawling 150,000 square-foot casino, there’s never a dull moment. The resort’s 90,000 square-foot retail space features 35 luxury brand-name stores, offering a unique shopping experience.

The resort’s nightclub, LIV, is quickly becoming one of the hottest spots in Las Vegas, adding to the city’s famed nightlife. For those who enjoy daytime festivities, the resort’s eight-acre Oasis pool deck hosts an impressive dayclub, perfect for those sun-soaked Vegas parties.

Our Unforgettable Experience

During our stay, we were absolutely enchanted. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make us feel like royalty, ensuring that every moment was truly special. The Fontainebleau LIV theater, with its intimate yet grand atmosphere, provided the perfect setting for the unforgettable Post Malone show. The food was delicious, and the wide array of options makes me want to return so I can try them all. Additionally, our evenings were made even more delightful by the Nowhere Bar, where we enjoyed the speakeasy vibe and live music, adding an extra layer of charm to our experience.

Need to Know

I highly recommend the Fontainebleau for anyone seeking a VIP luxury experience in Las Vegas. With its opulent decor, world-class amenities, and exceptional service, the Fontainebleau is not just a hotel; it’s a destination that promises to leave you with lasting memories and a strong desire to return for more unforgettable experiences. Whether it's the stunning views, the exquisite dining options, or the indulgent spa treatments, the Fontainebleau offers a truly exceptional stay that surpasses all expectations.
