Resort-hotels

The big hotels in Las Vegas are not really hotels – they are resorts in themselves. A couple of friends booked rooms separately but were asked if they’d like to be on the same floor. They were somewhat surprised to find that it was a 20-minute walk between the two! So be prepared for everything to be on a grand scale.

These are just a few of the main resort-hotels. You’ll find a full round-up with all the details in Brit Guide to Las Vegas.

Bellagio: Based on an entire upmarket lakeside village in northern Italy, this truly is a treat for romantics! It boasts seven fine dining restaurants and a Cirque du Soleil show – plus, of course, those fountains featured in Ocean’s Eleven.

 

Caesars Palace: Originally designed for high-rollers, it’s still posh but is now accessible to all. With its Greco-Roman empire, theme, the emphasis is on luxury and opulence.

 

CityCenter: CityCenter is the new address to have on the Strip and the place to be seen. It features Aria Resort & Casino, Vdara Hotel, Mandarin Oriental hotel, the residential Veers Towers, a fine art collection and Crystals retail and entertainment district. CityCenter signals the move away from themes and into dreams of sophisticated living with fine art and sustainability at its still hedonistic heart. 

 

Excalibur: Great for family fun at reasonable prices, this replica Camelot is every young knight and princess’s dream location.

MGM Grand: A massive resort-hotel that is good fun for the whole family, yet provides plenty of adult entertainment. It is famous for staging headliner shows and big fights in its arena.

 

The Mirage: An elegant taste of paradise, yet within reach of most budgets, you step through the doors into a tropical rainforest, with sharks swimming in the aquarium behind the reception desk.

 

Monte Carlo: Modelled on Monaco’s famous casino, this is luxury all the way – but worth it!

 

New York-New York: Boasting the most electrifying club scene in Vegas, the Statue of Liberty is the clue to spotting this resort on the Strip!

 

Paris Las Vegas: A tribute to the French capital, from the mini Eiffel Tower to the Arc de Triomphe.

 

Planet Hollywood: A well-priced mega resort now home to some of the most adult-orientated entertainments on the Strip.
