I usually book cheap Vegas hotels but felt like a high roller in a 1,000-square-foot suite in the Waldorf Astoria that costs $700 a night. Take a look inside.

  • This month, I checked into the five-star Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas for the first time.

  • The hotel is centrally located on the Las Vegas Strip, with no on-site casino.

  • I stayed in a one-bedroom city view suite and felt like a VIP after years in cheap Vegas rooms.

When I found myself traveling between Utah and California with my family and in need of a pit stop, I booked a night in Las Vegas.

I’ve visited Vegas for the last 20 years. I usually book cheap standard rooms, and have stayed at Wynn, Luxor, MGM Signature, Excalibur, Palazzo, Venetian, and Mandalay Bay, among others.

But this time, I was traveling with my husband and 2-year-old toddler — and I was nearly 9 months pregnant. I wanted to be comfortable.

We booked a one-bedroom suite at the Waldorf Astoria, a luxury hotel with a central location right on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s located between Aria and Park MGM.

Unlike many other Las Vegas Strip hotels, it’s a non-smoking, non-gaming hotel.

The hotels are more intimate than other big, splashy Vegas resorts. There are just three on-site food and drink options with two modestly-sized pools, a fitness center and a spa.

While I usually book cheap Vegas rooms where the total nightly cost is just two digits, this time, I splurged on a suite that typically starts at $700 per night. Otherwise, standard rooms here start at $279 for Hilton Honors members.

Insider received a reduced media rate for the stay.

I felt like a VIP from the moment we drove up to the secluded, valet-only entrance that was tucked away from all the activity on Las Vegas Boulevard.

From there, we rode the elevator up 23 stories to a sleek lobby with views over the city.

Our room was located on the 18th floor.

When I opened the front door, I felt like I had walked into a chic apartment.

The spacious living room included a curved couch, an armchair, a bar area, and a flat-screen TV in front of a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Double doors from the living area led to a separate bedroom, where a king-sized bed was framed by two more walls of full-length windows and a large TV. There was also additional seating and a desk.

Down a hallway from the bedroom, I found multiple areas for storage including a large closet stocked with plush robes and slippers next to a full-size mirror.

Across from the closet, I walked into the bathroom. Right away, it impressed me the most with a standalone soaking tub in front of more floor-to-ceiling windows — with shades for privacy.

The shades were controlled by the touch of a button, which I thought was neat, especially at night.

While I loved the dramatic look of the tub, I personally used the spa-like, walk-in shower. I thought it felt like a steam room when in use, and was luxuriously indulgent.

The bathroom also came stocked with designer toiletries from L’Occitane and Gilchrist & Soames.

When it was time for bed, various touch panels in the bedroom and living room controlled the temperature, lighting and curtains, which felt like another serious luxury.

I thought the bed was plush and inviting, and would have happily slept here for more than one night.

Sadly, the next morning it was time to check out. I thought the suite was spacious for my family of three, and made a quick one-night trip feel like a luxurious getaway.

And now that I’ve seen what it’s like to stay in a Vegas suite, it’s not going to be easy to go back to a standard hotel room.
