Luxury hotel suite for five/six people

Iíve always wanted my stag do in Vegas and although itís still going to be many months away Iím at the stage of planning things, if only to give people a chance to start saving up!

Iím looking for some advice on hotels though. Itíll be either three or four nights and Iím looking for a five-star suite which we can all share. There will be five (maybe six) of us.

For some reason Iíve always fancied The Bellagio, but can anyone offer suggestions of a well appointed suite which hotels are happy to have occupied by some many people? Only conditions really are a central location and luxury!

I searched for "suite" in the title of posts in this forum, and found these threads which should be helpful, if a little dated.
Bottom line is that you'll probably need a 2 bedroom suite (which in some cases is a 1-bedroom suite with an adjoining room) because of occupancy limitations. This will likely cost more than 2-3 regular rooms. My recommendation is to stay at an all-suite hotel like the Venetian/Palazzo or Delano, because the rooms are big, you can entertain, and they're not that expensive. I suppose you can get 4 into a two-queens suite, but they probably charge you something like $30/night for each additional adult beyond the first two (also the 2Q suites are usually a bit more expensive than the 1-King bed suite).
I had 15 at my bachelor party/stag do in Vegas ~2.5 years ago, we stayed at Palazzo. And we actually never really spend any time socializing in the rooms.

One of the most commonly asked questions in regards to staying in Vegas. It's very perceptive. Would be better if you provided more info, like budget, age, likes/dislikes and preferences. It also depends on when you're planning to go, which affects the price drastically. During major events/holidays, even if one is booked in a suite, can easily get bumped by last minute casino high rollers. That's a reality in Vegas that many do not know about or understand. Most if not all hotels, rooms are NOT guaranteed until check-in. Unfortunately, it happens quite oftent. So double check the dates you're planning to go to see if it revolves around any major events/holidays.

Back to answering your suite questions, it will always or usually cost more for a 2 bedroom suite than 2 regular connecting rooms. Most of the suites in Vegas are king beds only, even the 2 bedroom ones. There are very few that have 2 queen beds. If they do, the main/master bedroom is a king and the 2nd room which is usually a connecting room would have 2 queens.

I can comment a little on Bellagio, as I have stayed in a few of their suites (Bellagio, Cypress, Lakeview, and Penthouse suites). The only one that would fit your criteria for 5 or 6 of yous, would be the 2 bedroom Bellagio suite, which comes with a king and 2 queens. I know a lot of people find and see Bellagio as "luxury", but IMO, I don't find Bellagio luxury at all. It's worn out and dull.

Here's a few of my recommendations. I've stayed in all of them below and like them. Central location and prices can be low during off peak times.

Cosmo Wraparound Terrace suite with connector, connector is usually a 1bedroom terrace suite (favorite. can't beat having a balcony and that view)
Aria Sky Suites 2 bedroom
Aria Sky Suites 2 bedroom penthouse
Vdara 2 bedroom Penthouse
Vdara 2 bedroom Loft
Planet Hollywood 2 bedroom Panorama
Planet Hollywood 2 bedroom Boulevard
Planet Hollywood 2 bedroom Apex

Caesars has some nice suites, but the pricing for them are usually pretty high compared to other equally nice suites. Caesars properties that have suites can all be looked up here at this site https://www.caesars.com/las-vegas/suites , which is nice. MLIFE/MGM doesn't have a similar site, so you would have to go to each individual property to look at their rooms.

I can go on about other suites at properties as I've stayed in many of them. But I'll leave it here if you have more questions.

There's already a substantial premium for suites - it's significantly higher for suites that can accommodate 5+ people. Strongly recommend a 2BR (or even 1BR) that everyone can hang out in, and the rest can just get their own rooms.

The 2BR Penthouse at Bellagio isn't too bad in terms of price.
