My top recommendations for the best hotels in Las Vegas. Vegas has a staggering array of hotel options. Which hotel should you pick? So many choices! New York, Paris, Venice, you can stay in all of these places on just one street in Las Vegas! Join me as I walk through the 5 most luxurious hotels in Las Vegas, with 5 more “honorable mentions” that are worth considering if you have the cash!
5. Four Seasons & Delano in Mandalay Bay
Four Seasons: A gaming-free sanctuary at the southernmost end of the Strip. Occupies floors 35-39 of Mandalay Bay, has its own lobby,restaurants—and pool.
Delano: In a separate tower adjacent to Mandalay Bay the Delano is good for travelers wanting a quiet retreat still near the Vegas hustle and bustle.
4. Caesars Palace
Located at the very center of the strip, Caesars Palace is classic Las Vegas that continually reinvents itself and remodels to stay fresh. The most “boutique” rooms are within the Nobu “hotel within a hotel”, of what was once the old Centurion tower.
Everybody knows the Bellagio because of the amazing fountain show. In addition to the fountain, it’s a great hotel too. It’s a “newish” hotel, but with an upscale classic vibe.
2. Wynn & Encore
About as far north on the strip as you want to stay, the Wynn & Encore hotels are best described as a floral paradise, with heavy use of red paint, red carpet, and red upholstery. If you like the color red, you’ll love the Wynn and the Encore.
Honorable Mention: Sky Suites at Aria
Honorable Mention: Cosmopolitan
Honorable Mention: Mandarin Oriental
Honorable Mention: Skylofts at MGM Grand
1. Venetian & Palazzo
Themed on Venice Italy, with canals, gondolas, and complete with St. Marks square. My favorite hotel in Las Vegas. The hotel complex is the 2nd largest in the world with 7,117 rooms. And the 2nd largest Casino in the world.. Only bested by the Venetian Macao. Palazzo is the tallest hotel in Las Vegas. With rooms starting at 650 square feet, the standard rooms at the Venetian are among the largest on the Strip — Even the base-level rooms contain floor-to-ceiling windows, a king-size pillow-top bed dressed in Egyptian cotton sheets, and a bedroom that is partially separated from the sunken living room.
