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.
Perfect for families and visitors on a budget, Circus Circus is one of the most affordable and fun-filled places to clown around on the Vegas Strip. The well-loved resort was renovated in 2009 and offers 3,770 spacious, comfy rooms as well as the Strip’s only RV park.
Laid-back lakeside spread that's only 30 minutes (via free shuttle) from the action on the Strip.
It’s impossible to get any closer to the stunning Red Rock Canyon conservation area—located 10 miles west of the Strip—than at the Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa.
Rising 1,149 feet above the Strip, the Stratosphere Tower is the tallest structure in Las Vegas. Its two observation decks make it especially popular among pint-sized travelers; though parents can’t help but love the views from the revolving Top of the World restaurant (one of six at the hotel).
With an emphasis on the exotic that pervades everything from the architecture to the tasteful tropical decor, the Mirage is one of the premier hotels on the Vegas Strip. The iconic Mirage Volcano fronts the hotel, and every evening at sunset it lights up the sky with pyrotechnics.
With a history dating back to 1957, Tropicana is one of the few remaining “original” resorts on the Strip. Guests would never guess its age, however, thanks to a multimillion-dollar renovation last year.
Secretive, secluded, and luxurious, the Mansion at MGM Grand is modeled after an 18th-century Tuscan villa and is typically reserved for high-rollers and celebrities, remaining largely unknown to the general populous.
This property is under new management.
At the 392-room property, interior designer Adam Tihany tries to re-create the experience of contemporary Hong Kong.
A palm tree-lined parkway leads guests to the scenic and Spanish-villa-like exterior of the Green Valley Ranch. The full-service resort and spa offers high-end luxuries and all the comforts of a small city.
Now owned by the Morgans Hotel Group, the Hard Rock today is less grunge and far more rock 'n' roll glam, with an expansion that will include a 35,000-square-foot casino, a 20,000-plus-square-foot spa, and 950 guest rooms.
Topped with colorful turrets rising high above the Strip, this castle-themed resort was the world’s largest hotel when it first opened in 1990.
This all-suite, non-gaming, and non-smoking property is a serene oasis in the midst of the bright lights and bustling activity of Sin City.
A block from Las Vegas Boulevard, Platinum has 255 suites, which come with full stainless-and-granite kitchens, and—unlike most properties on the Strip—these have balconies.
