Las Vegas is the global capital of excess, glitz, glamour and opulent living! When it comes to sheer luxury and outrageous no-expense-spared detail, the city’s hotels are second to none. Here, no hotelier rests for a moment; each and every one is constantly trying to outdo the competition with Michelin-starred chefs, gravity-defying architectural structures, incredible numbers of bedrooms, mind-boggling spas, dancing fountains, breath-taking views and truly exceptional service stands. Here, we’re highlighting five of the best Las Vegas hotels.
Delano Las Vegas
With 1,117 rooms and having recently undergone a serious facelift, the Delano has been reborn as a classy, welcoming retreat from the noise, bluster and chaos that is Las Vegas. Carefully chosen artworks adorn the walls, the on-site dining and entertained is relaxed and top quality white décor and furnishings add to the sense of space, serenity and gentle indulgence.
Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino
This fun, vibrant Brazilian-themed casino resort offers guests extraordinary accommodation. Each suite has six bedrooms, a whirlpool tub on the balcony, huge living and dining spaces, and personal butlers on hand to meet every possible whim you may have. A party vibe permeates every corner of this hotel. There are live DJs, a rooftop nightclub, show stopping live acts, and a veritable town-load of restaurants and bars. Plus, of course, there’s a brilliantly bustling casino, which plays host to this year’s World Series of Poker final. Enter here, for your chance to get a Lucky Las Vegas package worth over $12,500. Including $10,000 buy-in for your seat at the final table.
Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino
This all-suite resort’s standard accommodation features glorious Old Hollywood style sunken living rooms and outsize beds that positively demand you jump in! Italian-inspired décor, destination hangout Canyon Ranch Spa and an extremely upmarket haute-couture shopping mall complete the experience. The resort houses a number of incredible eateries and lounge bars where residents can rub shoulders with the rich and famous, before heading to the casino for a few plays and a few expertly poured drinks.
Tropicana Las Vegas
The Tropicana is an old Vegas favourite that has been carefully updated to appeal a new, younger crowd. The style is Miami beach meets outrageous pool party. Located at the south end of the Strip, the hotel offers guests some respite from the main action and the service is consistently good. The tropical pool area that lends the hotel its name is a big draw and days spent sipping cocktails in the hot sun are an absolute pleasure.
The Cosmo (as it’s known) is a real hipster’s paradise. The hotel’s aesthetic is contemporary and cool with an arty, knowing slant. Breaking the tradition for high-glitz, sparkle and over-the-top touches, instead, this hotel has a more sophisticated, less brash edge that will appeal to the style-conscious. Next door is the classic Bellagio, perhaps Las Vegas’s best know hotel and casino so the Cosmo also boasts an excellent location in the heart of the action. The Cosmos is a great hang-out for star-spotting; head to the pool club, pop on your shades and watch the world go by.
