From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
It's ironic that the standout of the splashy new CityCenter is also the most understated thing in it. From the elegant bamboo and bonsai gardens at the entrance, to the key card access–only elevators, to the serene ambience (free of casino cacophony), the 392-room hotel is a study in calm sophistication—nary a fanny pack nor a bachelor party in sight. But don't be fooled by the Zen. This is a tightly run ship where guests' every desire is anticipated. Rooms are equipped with bedside touch-screen panels to control curtains, lighting, temperature, music, and TV. Bathrooms are sizable even in the smallest rooms (500 square feet), with luxe touches such as Frette robes, LCD-screen TVs inside the mirrors, and free-standing soaking tubs with screens to shelter shy bathers. Adam D. Tihany's Asian-esque decor cleverly incorporates modern hotel conveniences such as a technology kit and room service menus within tasseled traditional Chinese boxes. The one place where hyperbole rules is at the spa. Here, you don't have a massage but rather a journey; the place where you rinse off isn't a shower but an experience. Adjacent to the twenty-third-floor lobby is the glass-enclosed Mandarin Bar, where well-heeled guests look out on the Strip without getting their hands dirty.—2010 Hot List

Which room to book: Executive Club rooms have vast views of the Strip and the meteorlike new Crystals shopping complex.
