Las Vegas may have an adults-only reputation, but that’s hardly the whole story. There are so many fun things to do in Vegas with kids, which means there are plenty of family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas too. Here are six of our favorites.

First, are kids allowed in Vegas casinos?
Yes, but there’s a catch. Kids can enter and stay at hotels that house casinos, as long as they avoid the actual casino floors.
The 6 most kid-friendly hotels in Las Vegas
The most family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas offer something for everyone, from kid-friendly activities to more adult-oriented fun after dark.
1. The Excalibur
One of the first family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas, the Excalibur is themed like a Medieval castle, except with a much more colorful faḉade. Families can enjoy the Tournament of Kings show, while kids can run wild in the underground arcade and adults can throw money around on the casino floor.
The Excalibur is also relatively close to many other Las Vegas landmarks (including the hotels below) so the on-strip location is fantastic.
2. New York-New York
New York-New York is hands-down one of the coolest hotels in Vegas. For one, it has a roller coaster attached to it. But there’s also an arcade, pools and Brooklyn-themed restaurants. And while New York-New York might be one of the best kid-friendly hotels in Las Vegas, it’s great for adults too — to the tune of more than 80,000 square feet of table games and slot machines.

3. Mandalay Bay
Between the five-star spa, Shark Reef Aquarium and mini water park, Mandalay Bay has a lot to keep the whole fam happy. While it doesn’t have an exciting theme like Excalibur or New York-New York, kids will still be wowed by the hotel’s grandeur. And what kid doesn’t love a wave pool or a good ol’ fashioned lazy river?
4. Four Seasons Las Vegas

If you’d rather stay at a family-friendly hotel in Las Vegas that doesn’t have gambling, the Four Seasons Las Vegas is a top choice. It’s literally attached to the Mandalay Bay Resort, so you’re still close to the casino action (and Strip), but stays here are more in line with a typical five-star hotel experience.
Don’t forget: booking with Fora unlocks free upgrades and perks – which means you can splurge elsewhere, like on tickets to world-class shows and entertainment.
5. The Venetian (or Palazzo)
Looking for things to do in Vegas besides gambling? You might want to consider the Gothic-themed (Gothic as in Old World architecture, not Wednesday Adams) Venetian resort. Of special note are the gondola rides and Grande Shoppes at the hotel.
If you’re seeking a more luxurious experience, the Venetian’s sister hotel, the Palazzo, is also one of the more family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas.
6. The Bellagio
One of the most romantic hotels in Las Vegas, the Bellagio skews adult-oriented as compared to our previous choices, but there’s nothing overtly family-unfriendly here. Plus, the hotel is the picture of elegance.
The Bellagio Fountains, which are completely free to watch, are totally worth setting some time aside for – as are the paid experiences like Cirque du Soleil or Mayfair After Dark (the latter of which is not kid-friendly).
What makes the Bellagio one of the more kid-friendly hotels in Las Vegas? Its classy vibes and top-notch service.
