A laser beam-topped roof you can see from space? Check. Erupting volcanoes? Check. Choreographed fountains, massive shark tanks, beaches with crashing waves? You get the picture: Staying in hotels in Vegas is all about embracing the fantasy.

Along the Strip—the four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard—it's clear that Las Vegas hotels have engaged in an arms race of glitz over the years, from the Eiffel Tower of Paris Las Vegas to the Roman Empire at Caesars and the canals of The Venetian. Here are some of the best hotels in Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan: With its three-story bar enclosed by a giant chandelier, this sleek Strip hotel has become, for many, the epicenter of glam Las Vegas these days, right down to its luxe buffet, the Wicked Spoon.

Caesars Palace: Open since the Rat Pack years, this Strip resort is the epitome of the over-the-top Las Vegas, with its Roman statues, bubbling fountains, and the shopper paradise of The Forum. Red Rock: Not all of Las Vegas's attractions are man-made. Off the strip, this Las Vegas hotel and casino gets you close to the Red Rock Conservation area—but you still get a casino and a spa. Mandalay Bay: Thanks to its massive beach-and-pool complex, this Strip hotel is the most popular hotel for families.
