Suite accommodations in Henderson fit for a president

President Barack Obama is no stranger to overnight stays in Las Vegas and its surrounding suburbs. Previous visits have included nights at an undisclosed location at Lake Las Vegas and Element, a LEED-certified Westin property in Summerlin. While rumor has it Obama’s three-night stay – in preparation for his upcoming debate – will be a repeat at Lake Las Vegas, we take a look at some of the other finer accommodations available in Henderson:

    • The great room inside the Penthouse Suite at Green Valley Ranch.

      Penthouse Suite at Green Valley Ranch Resort

      Green Valley Ranch Resort was the first luxury hotel in Henderson to offer a presidential suite. Former guests of the suite have included William Shatner, Michael Jackson, Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson. The presidential suite has since been converted into a VIP concierge lounge, but the hotel has no shortage of accommodations fit for the commander-in-chief.

      Guest relations would more than likely put Obama in the 4,000-square-foot Penthouse Suite that is reserved strictly for VIP guests. The two-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom suite is fitted with a 1,650-square-foot terrace that overlooks the resort’s eight-acre pool area and offers views of the Las Vegas Strip. Upon entering the main great room, there’s a white baby grand piano, 10-person dining table, 50-inch LCD television and wet bar complemented with a fireplace.

      Each bedroom has its own fireplace and is equipped with a 42-inch flat screen television, Bose radio/CD player with iPod adapter, work desk with two-line phone and Internet connection, laptop-sized safe and full-length mirrors.

      There’s a deep-soaking Jacuzzi tub, bidet, dressing room and all-sided mirrored closet in the adjacent his and hers bathrooms.

    • Presidential Suite at Ravella

      Formerly the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas’ Ravella opened in February 2011 and offers two presidential suites. The 2,400-square-foot suites are decorated with classic luxury furnishings. They offer a separate dining room and boast a marble spa retreat bathroom stocked with Gilchrist & Soames products.

      Other perks include access to the Golf Club at SouthShore, the first private Jack Nicklaus signature course in Nevada, a complimentary newspaper, dual-line cordless telephones, and a work desk with free Wi-Fi.

      The suite rates vary from prime to off-season, but typically begin at $1500 per night.

    • M Resort's VIP/media opening.

      The Loft at M Resort

      Five Loft Suites are reserved strictly for high rollers and VIP guests and can only be reserved through one of the resort’s VIP hosts. The two-story, 2,400-square-foot suites offer a private entry for additional security and 270-degree views of the Las Vegas skyline. While each suite itself has only one bedroom with a king-size bed, one or two connecting rooms can be provided to accommodate additional guests. Two separate living areas feature unique architectural details such as a stone-and-glass staircase and etched sliding-glass doors. Each suite is equipped with multiple flat-screen televisions, wet bars, and the bathroom in each includes a freestanding spa tub and separate steam shower.

    • The entrance of Sunset Station as the sun goes down in Henderson.

      King Suites at Sunset Station

      If Mr. President wants to hang out with the 99 percent and locals, he can check out the accommodations at the neighborhood Sunset Station casino. The marketing on the property’s website boasts, “You’ll really feel like a King or Queen in our spacious luxury King Suites.” Ranging in size from 935 to 1025 square feet, the 18 suites are designed in classical comfort décor. Each has one king bed, a separate living room, dining area, master bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Other amenities include a flat-screen television, pillow top mattress, safe and in-room dining.

      A three-night stay will set you back a modest $750.

    1. I am glad he is here.

    2. Wherever you stay and whatever you do President Obama have a safe stay in Nevada. As Las Vegas Sun has removed my other comments this morning I would ask as President you would be concerned enough to make a few calls insuring Nevada State Boiler Inspectors inspect and correct any and all problems with the oil boilers located at Nevada's Premiere Lithium Brine Operations before there is an unfortunate accident in the future that harms people living close by, after all you and Michelle would not like it if your children were harmed by a worn out poorly maintained oil boiler used to process Lithium Carbonate and Lithium Hydroxide required in production of Lithium batteries for electric cars and electronic equipment" PRupp Silver Peak NV

    3. I don't know why he's here.....he continuously screws over Vegas in the public space. He single handedly cost the city $100+ mil worth of business with his careless actions. He's not welcome least not in my book.

    4. Screwing up Las Vegas tourist business again. The man is a one one person economy wrecking machine...

    5. Birther Alert! Birther Alert!

    6. Welcome to Henderson, Mr. President. I'm happy you are here, and hope your stay is lovely and productive.
