Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower
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). The tower also has four thrill rides, including Big Shot—which catapults riders 160 feet into the air—and SkyJump Las Vegas, a controlled free fall from the 108th floor. The 2,427 guest rooms are basic but comfortable; “select” rooms contain updated amenities like marble floors and flat-screen TV’s.
