All In: The 15 Most Popular Hotels in Las Vegas

Widely hailed as the ultimate playground, Las Vegas is one of those destinations everyone has to visit at least once in their lives. With plenty to do beyond the slot machines, Sin City is home to show stopping musicals, dynamic drinking and dining, and a nightlife that doesn’t stop for the sunrise. However, it’s the serious hotel game that sets the city apart. Popular hotels in Las Vegas regularly top the tables in the US for having some of the best services in the country, with resorts like Bellaggio and The Venetian receiving the coveted Five-Star AAA Diamond rating.

Branded as Sin City’s premier luxury resort, you might wonder how the Cosmpolitan distinguishes itself from other popular hotels in Las Vegas. But the Cosmpolitan has found away. Featuring glamorous, boutiquey rooms that are a cut above most of the competition, a stay here is as opulent as it is entertaining. Make the most of your stay by checking into a deluxe fountain view room, which looks out directly over the Bellagio’s famed water features.

In the evening, supper clubs like Chandelier Bar provide a glittery setting for a well-crafted cocktail or two. Those looking for something a little more intimate can head to The Barbershop a classic speakeasy-cum-salon that sits hidden behind an unassuming janitor’s door. To top it all off, there are six live music venues, and of course, a vanishing edge pool.

Guests staying in strip-view rooms can also enjoy a view of The Venetian, next door.

Mystère by Cirque du Soleil, on at Treasure Island throughout 20202, elicits an awe-inspiring evening of “oo’s” and “ahhs.” It’s best recounted over a yard-long margarita at fiesta-filled Señor Frogs or spirited frontier-inspired watering hole, Gilley’s Saloon.

The Downtowner Motel is a short walk from Fremont Street’s iconic evening light shows. Located in Las Vegas’ historic center, it offers up a different side of the city for those that aren’t hung up on spending all their time on The Strip. It’s a tongue-in-cheek take on the traditional freeway motel. Think updated, poppy decor, a hip onside bar, and mini-golf against a hilariously artificial view of the Calico Hills.

Formerly the Imperial Palace, this updated casino hotel neighboring the High Roller draws a younger crowd than many on The Strip. This is clearly reflected in the vibe: Pool parties? Check. Ziplines?

Aptly located on Tropicana Boulevard is this palm-lined party resort. MGM Grand’s gimmick is a 6.5 outdoor pool area that’s dissected by quite possibly the longest lazy river in existence. Make the most of your time by the water by renting a private cabana or indulging in a poolside massage. After sundown, bluff your way through a couple of rounds at the poker tables. Then, head to the onsite venue Hakkasan — Las Vegas’ premier dance club — which this year has booked Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, and Tiësto to headline on various nights.

Arguably the best-known resort on the entire strip, Caesars Palace is a decadent tribute to the Roman Empire. Everything here about this place is befitting of an imperial conqueror, from the columned forum that surrounds Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, to the lofty rooms and suites that top the Augustus tower. You’ll feast like a king at in-house favorites, such as Bacchanal Buffet and Old Homestead Steakhouse, both of which garnered rave reviews. And if you’re hoping to catch a show, you’re in the right place. The 4,100-seat Colosseum has booked everyone from Celine Dion to Elton John.

Circus Circus has more than earned its stripes as a resort that knows how to put on a show. Billing itself as the world’s largest permanent circus, it holds daily free acrobatic performances from 11:30 a.m. If seeing daring trapeze artists be flung to great heights isn’t enough to get your pulse racing, the Adventuredome certainly will. This 5-acre indoor (yes: indoor) amusement park boasts 25 rides and attractions. Steel your nerves and catch a ride on the double-looping, double-corkscrew-twisting, Canyon Blaster.
