Hotels in Las Vegas
The Venetian, on the Las Vegas Strip, isn’t the only place where Italy is re-created in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. Consider Ravella, a sprawling, 349-room resort on the shores of Lake Las Vegas, just 17 miles east of Sin City.
While this casino offers plenty for gamblers—it houses 1,723 slot machines, 39 table games, and live poker—it’s also home to the Desperado, one of the tallest and fastest roller coasters in the world, as well as a log flume ride that runs through the main casino floor.
Formerly Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas
Just five minutes from the Strip, the Palms Casino Resort is a popular destination for young visitors as well as celebrities.
Mid-Strip extravaganza with a palatial 65,000-square-foot spa, 14 restaurants, botanical gardens, and dancing fountains.
LEED-certified all-suite property with over-the-top room décor (multiple flat-screen TV’s, sunken living rooms, and mini-bars stocked with everything from champagne to La Belge Chocolatier desserts).
It takes a lot to make waves in Sin City, but Aria did it in 2009, redefining the skyline with its minimalist, curvilinear glass towers housing 4,004 rooms, 18 restaurants, eight bars, a nightclub, a casino, spa, pools, and resident Cirque du Soleil show.
A nice alternative to the hustle and bustle (and sometimes insanity) of hotels on the Strip, Sam's Town Hotel is equally ideal for those who like their Vegas vacations action-packed and travelers who prefer a little more luxury and tranquility.
Featuring a 30-story black glass exterior topped with the world’s brightest light beam, the Luxor is one of the most recognizable buildings on the Strip.
With a casino floor flooded with natural light, a botanical theme, and a collection of restaurants with rising celebrity chefs like Paul Bartolotta and David Walzog, Wynn Las Vegas has single-handedly redefined the standard of luxury
The 1,282-room Trump Las Vegas provides something unexpected in the heart of Sin City: a family- and pet-friendly resort.
An escape from the blinking neon lights of the Strip, this resort is located 30 minutes from the city in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
Fashionably minimalist, THEhotel is meant to feel like a boutique hotel (though with 1,117 rooms, this is hardly the case).
