The best places to stay in Las Vegas have a little bit of everything, and that is certainly true of the Bellagio. It’s the home of the iconic Bellagio fountains, the beloved Cirque du Soleil show “O,” an incredible casino, fantastic restaurants like The Mayfair Supper Club, Le Cirque, and Spago (and many others!), an art gallery, a luxurious spa, and so much more.

Bellagio is centrally located in the heart of the action on the Las Vegas strip. You’ll find well-decorated rooms and suites with views of the fountains, the strip, or the Las Vegas Valley. Some room categories allow you to upgrade to the Bellagio VIP lounge, which includes private check-in, personal concierge services, snacks throughout the day, and other amenities.

This luxurious Las Vegas resort has a very glam feel to it. The stunning Chandelier Bar and the lively casino floor set the upscale yet energetic tone for the whole hotel. The Cosmopolitan is packed with great restaurants & bars, including one inside a barbershop. (Yes, you can actually have your hair cut while you drink a cocktail). The resort also has two pools, a day club, a night club and the incredible Sahra Spa, Salon & Hammam.

This is the best place to stay in Las Vegas if you’re looking for a balcony! The Cosmopolitan offers studios, suites and penthouses with oversize private terraces, as well as room options with large windows and beautiful views. The bathrooms are luxurious, and many of them feature soaking tubs.

Wynn & Encore

The Wynn & The Encore are sister properties, and you can’t go wrong with either one!

Both resorts offer spacious rooms and suites with comfortable beds, and plenty of premium features in most rooms. You’ll find soaking tubs, rainfall showers, customized lighting options, and in-room tablets among the options. Both properties have their own spa, shops, casino, and lots of fabulous restaurants, but there are just a few differences.

Wynn Resort highlights include a race & sports book, a poker room, and a slightly more central location on the Strip. It may be for you if you want to stay close to the gambling action, or you like walking to other nearby resorts.

Encore Resort highlights include the Encore Beach Club (the place for both day and nighttime pool parties) and the XS Nightclub. It may be the right choice for you if you’re looking for a lively party scene.

The Four Seasons Las Vegas

If you are bringing the family, consider The Four Seasons Las Vegas. Located inside the Mandalay Bay on the south end of the Las Vegas strip, this is a non-smoking, non-gaming hotel. Children are welcomed here with special amenities, restaurant menus, the use of books and games, and more! and The Four Seasons Las Vegas can even arrange babysitting. This is also a great place to stay if you’re visiting for an event at Allegiant Stadium because it is a very short walk away.

You’ll find all types of rooms here, from studios to multi-bedroom suites and penthouses. Sofa beds, rollaway beds, and cribs are available in many of the rooms to accommodate all members of the family. Bathtubs are available in almost all of the rooms, adding to the family-friendly nature of this hotel.

The Vdara is another non-gaming, non-smoking hotel. It has a great spa and fitness center, but its real highlight is its central location on the Las Vegas strip. It is located between Aria and Bellagio (and connected to both by a tram), and it’s behind The Cosmopolitan. This gives guests easy access to the shops, restaurants, shows, and amenities found at all of the other hotels, while giving them a respite from the smoke and crowds of the casinos.

Vdara is an all-suite hotel, and each one includes comfortable beds, kitchenettes or kitchens, walk-in showers and separate soaking tubs. Some include living rooms, dining tables, and multiple bedrooms.
