Best known for its deep-rooted history in the entertainment industry, Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is located just one block from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. Formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, the resort is home to the world’s largest race and sportsbook, nine dining options (one being, Edge Steakhouse, the resort’s refined steakhouse serving a menu of top quality wet and dry-aged Prime cuts, Domestic Wagyu Beef, fresh seafood and more), a 95,000 sq. ft. casino floor and 2,800 rooms and suites.
Starting in the 60s with Elvis’ seven-year residency at the property as well as Barbara Streisand, along with Liberace in the 70s, Wayne Newton and more, the resort is excited to bring back Barry Manilow who returned to the International Theater at Westgate Las Vegas September 16, 2021.
The property is also known for its three ‘palaces in the sky,’ the Sky Villas. The three villas (The Tuscany Villa, The Verona Villa and The Versailles Villa) are massive, elegant and jaw-dropping encompassing a total of 41,200 square feet. While each villa was originally designed in the 1990s, they have been refurbished over the years and are booked through special requests and mostly go to high-rollers, celebrities or exclusive events.
The Verona Sky Villa is not only the largest of Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s Sky Villas, it is also the largest hotel suite in the country measuring at 15,400 sq. ft. (other resorts and hotels have claimed to host the largest suite, yet Westgate Las Vegas has failed to find a suite larger than the Verona Villa).
The palatial space was featured on Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous and can accommodate up to 250 people, where guests can enjoy the four-seat media room and full bar. Made up of three bedrooms, a secluded master retreat with a private outdoor pool and garden, three master bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms and a large living area, luxury can be seen from floor to ceiling. Starting with the imported Italian marble to the over 10 tapestries, the frescos and hand-painted ceilings throughout also add an elevated touch.
What is now the Tuscany Villa can be dated back to the hotel’s opening as the International Hotel back in 1969, as it housed Elvis at the time. As the second largest of the Sky Villas at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, Exuding Italian elegance with elaborate custom wall and ceiling murals, the villa comprises 13,200 sq. ft. of space and sleeps up to 10 guests. On the 30th floor of the resort, the villa includes an oversized living area as well as a private courtyard and pool.
The two-story Versailles Sky Villa features views of both the Strip and Mountains thanks to its near floor-to-ceiling windows in the main living area. With the ability to sleep up to six guests and host up to 150 for a small gathering, the premium private space exudes historic French elegance with numerous sculptures and large paintings throughout. Guests will enjoy the oversized formal dining room and living room that opens to a grand courtyard and pool while hosts can sneak off to the master retreat which connects to an outdoor terrace with stunning views.
