Las Vegas is a trip unlike any other, and if you’ve booked your first trip to the City of Sin, it’s important that you choose the right hotel or resort to call your home away from home. This hotel needs to offer top amenities, great rooms at a great price, and of course must be close to all the action. If you aren’t sure what your options are outside of the Bellagio or Caesar’s (which can end up being far out of most people’s budgets), don’t worry. This guide will outline the top hotels and resorts near or on the Strip that will give you excellent value and a wonderful experience:
- Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino
This stunning hotel and casino is just one block away from The Strip and can be found opposite the Las Vegas Convention Center.
This Westgate Resorts Las Vegas boasts a 95,000 sq ft casino, a tennis court, and a rooftop pool with a bar. If that isn’t enough to keep you going all night long, there are also 14 dining options, including the Benihana and Edge Steakhouse, so you’ll eat spectacularly, all while being within easy reach of The Strip, which is just one block away.
- The Venetian Resort Las Vegas
Part of the hotel complex that includes The Palazzo and the Sands Expo Convention Center, this stunning hotel offers it all.
If you’re looking for magic on The Strip, head to the Venetian. Its ritzy suites are something else, with soaking tubs, fireplaces, and stunning, lavish décor throughout. The resort itself has over 20 restaurants, a wax museum, a theater, a casino, and of course, artificial canals. Take a ride in a gondola, spend some time searching for that perfect outfit at the Fashion Show Mall, go to the casino, or kick back and relax at the spa.
- The STRAT
Formerly known as the Stratosphere, this hotel has a 360° rotating tower that gives you the best views of the city.
The STRAT must be on your to-do list regardless of whether you stay there or not. Even if you don’t book a meal at their rotating restaurant, it’s worth it to go up to the top for those breathtaking views over the city. Hotel guests, of course, get to go up to the top as part of their resort fee! There are other great amenities (available for a surcharge) like thrill rides that take you up over the city.
- Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World
For a truly out-of-this-world experience, book this 5-star hotel and resort in Las Vegas.
This stunning 5-star hotel and resort offers some great attractions, like an infinity pool that gives you some amazing views (and Instagram-worthy pictures) over the Las Vegas skyline. You’ll find it across the street from the Convention Center, making it a great choice for those spreading out their time in various attractions. When it’s time to eat, don’t go anywhere, as there are several Michelin-starred restaurants right on the property.
