Looking to blow off some steam on a trip to Las Vegas? Staying at the best party hotels in Vegas is a good first step. And we’ve got three for you.
What makes a hotel the best party hotel in Vegas?
Despite Vegas’ reputation as the party capital of the Western World, not every hotel caters to that scene. Some of the best hotels in Vegas are more family-friendly, while others offer a relaxing respite from the crowds on the strip.
Here’s what makes the best party hotel in Las Vegas.
Pool parties & nightclubs with bottle service
Pools and nightclubs are the center of the action at the major Las Vegas hotels. And the best party hotels in Vegas bring in renowned DJs from around the world to headline their venues.
A busy casino
Even if you’re looking for things to do in Vegas besides gamble, a hotel’s casino is a good indicator of how lively the hotel’s other venues are.
Packed casino? Wild parties.
Sidenote: our non-gambling Vegas itinerary has ideas for those who want to skip the casino, too.

The “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” catchphrase was probably invented at a Vegas penthouse party. The scale of the rooms at the best party hotels in Vegas will blow you away. The larger, the better.
Location on the Strip
Staying on the Strip is the best way to partake in the action. If one hotel doesn’t fit the vibe you’re going for, you can walk to the next hotel. With few exceptions, all the best party hotels in Vegas are close together on the Strip.
Bonus: most of the best Las Vegas landmarks are on the Strip, too.
The 3 best party hotels in Vegas
Just about all the hotels on or near the Strip could contend to be the best party hotel in Vegas, but we’ve narrowed it down to three.
Best party hotel in Vegas choice #1: The Cosmopolitan
Built in 2010, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is one of the newest additions to the Strip. Its animated pool area, with three massive pools plus the Marquee Dayclub, is a chill venue by day that turns into an open-air nightclub at sunset — DJ and all.
Within the hotel, The Chandelier, a multi-story lounge, serves as the hub. There’s something for every kind of traveler here, with a lively dance floor giving way to a “cocktail haven” with booths and bottle service. Or, chill from afar in the attached lounge.
Bonus: trendy and energetic, The Cosmopolitan mostly caters to a younger crowd, but self-described old timers might enjoy The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails lounge, which offers a more relaxed experience.
Best party hotel in Vegas choice #2: The Palazzo at the Venetian
The Palazzo is the high-class, sister hotel to The Venetian (one of the coolest hotels in Vegas). Both could make a bid for the best party hotel in Vegas, but we like The Palazzo’s spacious suites, which are perfect for larger groups.
Outside of the rooms, The Palazzo’s Electra Cocktail Club lives up to its lively name with a pulsing dancefloor and an elite mixologist. And, everything The Venetian has to offer is only an elevator ride and a quick walk away.
Sidenote: with a gorgeous faux-Venice backdrop, The Venetian is among the most romantic Vegas hotels, too.

Best party hotel in Vegas choice #3: Caesars Palace
Located near the heart of the Strip and luxurious enough for a Roman emperor, Caesars Palace has long been a top party hotel in Vegas, largely thanks to the posh OMNIA nightclub, whose parties end whenever you want them to.
Caesars Palace is also one of the best hotels for Vegas bachelorette parties or the ultimate Vegas girls trip. (And if you're looking for more bachelorette party inspiration, check out our guide to a Colorado bachelorette party.)
