Four Seasons Las Vegas
Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is not only immediately adjacent to and connected to the Mandalay Bay Hotel (one of the closest casino hotels to McCarran International Airport); Four Seasons guests can use the pool and beach facilities of the Mandalay Bay at no additional cost. The advantages of staying at the Four Seasons, however, instead of the Mandalay Bay include avoiding the huge crowds checking in and out at the Mandalay Bay and receiving a lot more personal attention from the staff. In addition, the Four Seasons Hotel has a reputation of catering more to children. Many other families with kids stay there, so during the course of your stay, you might even meet other guests with kids the same age as yours who can hang out with and play with your kids.
Few Las Vegas hotels are willing to go the extra mile to make your kids feel welcome as Four Seasons. As soon you check in, your children will be delighted to find all of the following:
- A kids' welcome amenity
- Complimentary baby and children's toiletries
- Complimentary welcome milk and cookies
- Popcorn and soda on arrival for teenagers
- Children's menu for room service
In addition, upon request, the Four Seasons can have your room childproofed and provide you with various other amenities you might need like these:
- Crib and/or roll away bed(s) (additional fee)
- Strollers (there may be an additional fee)
- Basket of essentials for infants
- Complimentary high chairs and playpens
- Board games
- DVD and video library
Check-in time is 3 p.m. and check-out time is 12 noon. As at most hotels, accommodations vary in terms of size, extra amenities, and cost. However, the Four Seasons Hotel is considered a luxury resort, and all rooms and suites are expressly designed with guests' comfort in mind and include the following special features and amenities:
- Located on 35th to 39th floors with large floor-to-ceiling windows offering magnificent Las Vegas Strip or mountain views
- Marble baths with shower and separate soaking tub
- Down duvet and pillows (or hypoallergenic bedding on request)

- Hair dryer
- Thick terry bathrobes
- In-room safe

Even the smallest rooms are oversized compared to what you will find at most hotels. "Superior rooms," which can easily accommodate two adults and one infant or child, are 500 square feet and include 1 king-size bed and 1 rollaway bed or crib. "Deluxe rooms," which are large enough for two adults and two kids, are 550 square feet and include 1 king-size bed and both a rollaway bed and crib or two double beds and either a rollaway bed or crib.
Or you can opt for a suite ranging in size from 810 square feet to 2,225 square feet. The suites feature a separate living room and bedroom area and a 55-inch LED TV in the living room. In addition, the larger suites include a sofa bed, two rollaways, and a crib, so they can easily accommodate a family with three kids. The larger suites also include a separate dining room and large kitchen pantry equipped with kitchen appliances and a full size refrigerator.

There are only two restaurants at the Four Seasons Hotel, one of which is Veranda, located on the lobby level. Veranda offers a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. It is basically an upscale coffee shop.
There is no separate children's menu. However, in the morning, standard breakfast items are available like eggs with bacon, ham, or sausage or buttermilk pancakes, along with some more adventurous items like chicken and waffles and Huevos Rancheros. A gluten free breakfast special is available, too, for children who have a gluten intolerance. There are also many items on the menu that will appeal to the health conscious (but probably not so much to children) like quinoa muesli, steel cut oatmeal, and organic juices, and even an "antioxidant healthy start" breakfast.
Charlie Palmer's Steakhouse, voted best steakhouse in Las Vegas by the Las Vegas Review Journal, is an upscale restaurant known for world class steaks and vibes. Expect an excellent selection of traditional cuts including a Charcoal Grilled Filet Mignon in and a 28-day aged Bone in Rib Eye. The wine list specializes in exciting new producers from up and down the West Coast but also offers a wide range of Old-World wines. Charlie Palmer's is located just off the lobby of The Four Seasons Hotel.
Raffles Café, open 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is a relaxing place for a family breakfast or lunch. However, it will cost about as much as the Veranda since everything is la carte and there is no special menu for kids. Figure on spending about $35 per person, even for breakfast. Items on the lunch menu your kids might like include cheeseburgers, chicken tenders, and sandwiches.
Citizens Kitchen Bar
This 24/7 eatery offers a nice choice of kid-friendly breakfast items. For example, your kids can have Bacon, Egg, and Cheese on a Kaiser Roll, Belgian Waffles, or Red Velvet Pancakes. The lunch and dinner menu includes various sandwiches or a hamburger or cheeseburger with a choice of shoestring fries, potato salad, pasta salad, or coleslaw.
While the Bayside Buffet is not cheap either, unlike the above-mentioned restaurants, children do receive a special price. The buffet is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily and for brunch Friday through Sunday. The hours and prices for adults and for children ages 5-12 are shown below. Children under age 5 eat free!
House of Blues Restaurant & Bar
This popular restaurant located at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. In fact, the breakfast is not only kid-friendly, but also wallet-friendly. In addition to the sizeable regular menu, there is a special Kids Menu for children ages 12 and under. The choices include bargain-priced Kids Pancakes, Kids French Toast, Cheese Omelet, "Mini Waffles of Love", or a combo of pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon, or sausage.
If you're in Vegas on a Sunday be sure to take your kids to the world-famous House of Blues Gospel Brunch which includes an all you can eat Southern style buffet and the gospel entertainment. The food includes breakfast fare, and hearty traditional Southern cuisine favorites like fried chicken, biscuits and country gravy, macaroni and cheese, and jambalaya.
