Las Vegas might not sound like the best place to hunker down and get some work done. But hotel groups are hoping to change that.

MGM Resorts International is offering a new “Viva Las Office” package, whereby frazzled home workers can swap a view of their backyard for one of the Bellagio fountains. Opt for the top-end “Executive” deal, which starts at $278 a night, and guests can stay at the Vdara Hotel & Spa or the Aria Resort & Casino, work from a lavish suite or an outdoor cabana, and wind down afterwards with a poolside massage.
