Hotels in Nevada

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.  


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.

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.

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.

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.

The 1,282-room Trump Las Vegas provides something unexpected in the heart of Sin City: a family- and pet-friendly resort.

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.

After much anticipation, the $300 million Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe opened in December 2009 at the family-friendly Northstar at Tahoe resort.
