    I had the opportunity for another stay at the Four Seasons Las Vegas last weekend. I figured it would be a great opportunity to post a quick review.

    Location: The FS LV is located on the Southernmost portion of the Strip, nearest to McCarran Airport. That means tremendous views of the airfield, but potentially some unwanted noise.

    Check-in: This is one of the great aspects of the FS LV, especially in contrast to the goat rodeo that is check-in at virtually every other Las Vegas hotel. After reaching the Porte Cochere, the staff radioed ahead to the front desk and when I reached the desk I was almost fully checked in. Having booked the FHR rate ($279), the gentleman manning the check in area explained the FHR benefits and let me know that I had been upgraded to a 180 degree strip view suite. This was an amazing upgrade and afforded tremendous views.

    Service: We called down and asked the concierge if we could get on the VIP list for "Mix", the nightclub within the Mandalay Bay. This was done and when we arrived at "Mix" we were able to skip the line and head up and enjoy the views.

    Food: We had room service breakfast which was delivered exactly at the time mentioned by the person taking the order. She noted that there was a bit of a delay and that it would take about 35 minutes from the placement of the order for it to be delivered. I certainly didn't mind the wait, but appreciated the forthright sharing of information. We also had a few drinks at the pool. The ability to have quiet time at the FS pool as well as the louder scene at the Mandalay Bay was a good fit for this twenty-something traveller and his companion.

    All and all, the FS remains one of the better upscale mass-market properties in Las Vegas.

    The FS is right next to the Mandalay Bay, on the side beyond most of the strip (Luxor Hotel, etc. on the same side of the street). The properties are even connected. Note, however, that the FS has no casino of its own. This gives it a different atmosphere, which might or might not be what you want in Vegas. Personally, I like it very much.

    Thanks flyer_o for the update. Out of curiosity- is "Mix" the location formerly known as the foundation room? (On the top floor of the hotel reached from an elevator in the lobby).

    No."Mix" is at the top of THE Hotel while the Foundation Room is on top of the Mandalay Bay. We actually passed the Foundation Room on the way to "Mix".
