Hotels in Las Vegas

Laid-back lakeside spread that's only 30 minutes (via free shuttle) from the action on the Strip.

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 Cote d’Azur-themed pool bridges the gap between spa-quiet and dance party, which is nice for adults who want a little grown-up mingling but not a full-fledged, daytime EDM scene.

Eight distinctively different pools make up this massive complex which, true to its oversized Roman theme, is filled with classical landscaping, Roman statues, an 18-foot waterfall and, of course, go-go dancers.

White wicker, wood, and gorgeous red drapery surround the three-tiered pleasure complex that is Encore Beach Club.

One of the best escapes in Las Vegas—even for those who aren’t staying in the Mandarin Oriental— is on this hotel’s 8th floor.

The largest of Cosmopolitan’s three pool areas, the multi-level Boulevard Pool has an unobstructed view of the Strip, four stories below.
