So what city embodies the complete opposite of our Smallest Coolest Contest? We'd have to say fellow Southwest locale, Las Vegas, which aims to do everything bigger and more ostentatiously than any other city in all of the States. And nowhere else is interior decor taken to such an extreme as in Vegas (maybe except Dubai). Case in point are these Palms Place Fantasy Tower luxury suites that have some *ahem* interesting design choices within...
Any Real World fans out there? You can stay in the actual suite-set from the show. Drama and unintended nudity not included and to be provided by guests.
Wanna live lovely like Kanye? He stayed at the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, appointed with amenities such as an outdoor cantilevered Playboy Jacuzzi pool, Eames lounger, an 8' round, rotating bed, pop-up plasma TVs, and a clear view of the strip.
Like the colour pink and mirrored terrazzo bubble flooring? The Hot Pink Suite is strangely almost tasteful compared to the others (it has a bit of an upscale midcentury coffee shop vibe to it).
The Crib Suite is is likely how Don Johnson imagines heaven. Pipe in some Jan Hammer and take off those socks before putting on your shoes...you're living it up, Crockett.
To be honest, I'm personally not all too fond of the Vegas experience. I always imagine Rat Pack glamour and instead notice the crassness glowing through the paper thin facade of luxury. But there's something car-crash alluring to these over-the-top rooms with their MTV video fantasy decor, at least from a distance. The popularity of Vegas and other themed accommodations across the nation point out that when we leave home...we really want to leave it all behind. And from the looks of things, guests of these rooms will likely want to abide by the city's slogan and let what happened in Vegas stay in Vegas (especially the kind of person who rents out The Erotic Suite.
