Live Your Best ‘Suite’ Life When You Stay at These Luxurious Hotels in the West Coast
Written By: Kandace Cornell Best Presidential Suites
The first half of summer may be behind us, but you can still make the most of the sun-soaked days and balmy nights of the season by springing for an ultra-high-end staycation at one of the area’s most luxe presidential suites. Whether you’re headed to the desert, taking a trip along the coast or kicking it in the city, we’ve rounded up the best of the best. Get ready to treat yo’self to some serious luxury, because life is short and you deserve it!
Offering “unforgettable experiences in the heart of an unforgettable city, the sprawling suite is the ultimate in luxury,” says Director of Public Relations & Communications, Erica Johnson. With front-row views of the Strip, a sleek, open-plan kitchen outfitted in stainless steel and dark, swirled granite—and a contemporary wet bar that would make James Bond envious—get ready for some serious indulgence. There’s no excuse to skip the cardio when you have your very own top-of-the-line fitness area. Plus, you’ll have a media room fully wired for surround sound, and a sitting area with a casual Baby Grand Piano to keep you entertained.

If you’re in search of a home away from vacation, the El Presidente Suite is for you. Perfect for entertaining guests, the resort-style villa offers “Spanish-style charm, sweeping views of the desert landscape and 2000 square-feet of indoor and outdoor space,” according to Director of Marketing, Chris George. For some private time, you can steal away to the separate King Guest House—yes that’s right, your suite includes a guest house—or you could take a dip in your own private pool, or simmer under the stars in your very own bubbling hot tub.

Take in a stunning sunset from one of your private balconies, which overlook the glittering hills along the California coastline, or sip cocktails downstairs on the bustling terrace bar, 180Blu.

Enjoy panoramic views of the Santa Monica coast from this beachside oasis—plus with two-and-a-half Italian marble bathrooms, two fireplaces, a private telescope and complimentary chauffeur service, we won’t blame you for never wanting to leave.
