Top 10 Las Vegas Hotels 2018
SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand
First off, we should note that staying at SKYLOFTS could set you back thousands of dollars. Still, recent travelers have really enjoyed the pampering they received in the ultra-luxurious, loft-style rooms at this Vegas hotel. The journey begins with car service in a limousine from the airport to the private SKYLOFT entrance at the MGM Grand on the Strip. After check-in, you'll ride a private elevator to your spacious suite at the top of the building. And you'll find plenty of extras, like a personal concierge, an infinity spa tub, a heated towel rack and an in-loft espresso machine. You'll even have access to an in-room, touch-screen universal remote that controls everything from the lighting to the room's temperature. What's more, some lofts come equipped a private plunge pool or a full kitchen, if you're so inclined. Recent visitors raved about their stays, citing the excellent staff members and the pampering amenities as reasons to return.
Aria Sky Suites
Resting high above the Las Vegas Strip, ARIA Sky Suites sits atop the ARIA Resort & Casino in the heart of Sin City. Attention to detail is a high priority at this hotel. A personal concierge is assigned to each Sky Suite, and, according to recent visitors, the service is unparalleled. As far as rooms go, you'll have the option of one- and two-bedroom suites or penthouses, and – if you really want to splurge – Sky Villas. These accommodations range from 2,000 to 7,000 square feet and include floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows with epic views of Las Vegas. All rooms come with separate living room and bedroom areas, flat-screen TVs and touch-screen consoles that control everything from the entertainment system to the blackout drapes. Outside the accommodations, visitors have access to a private pool, an art gallery and a lounge with free food and drink amenities, such as a daily wine and cheese pairing.
Wynn Las Vegas
This sprawling resort – with its huge emphasis on natural light, greenery and other earthy elements – is perhaps the first central Las Vegas hotel to master the feeling of seclusion rather than themed chaos. And the rooms are consistently called the best non-suite accommodations on the Strip. Recent travelers found lots to love in the Wynn – the top-rated Andrea's fine dining restaurant and the posh casino, to name a few things – but not everyone loves the price. You'll pay a pretty penny for everything here (and a daily resort fee on top of that), although most visitors say it's worth it the splurge. The Wynn enjoys a centralized location with Encore, The Palazzo and The Venetian all within walking distance.
Nestled in the heart of the Strip, the Mandarin Oriental doesn't feature a casino.. And with only 392 guest rooms and suites, this hotel is practically a boutique compared to the Strip's monumental towers. But guests love the Mandarin Oriental's quiet and classy atmosphere and they don't mind leaving the hotel to hit the slots. The spacious rooms are particularly popular, filled with features like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, soaking tubs and separate showers, and the design aesthetic highlights sleek and subtle Asian-inspired touches. Another traveler favorite is the critically acclaimed spa, which guests say has some of the best masseuses on the Strip. You'll find the Mandarin Oriental tucked between the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino and the Shops at Crystals shopping complex, smack dab in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Located on the Strip just south of the Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is one of Sin City's more modern luxury hotels. Rooms are comfortable yet contemporary, thanks to a palette of cool blues and bright whites. Accommodations also house plenty of luxe amenities like spacious, marble-floored bathrooms and separate seating areas. Plus these are some of the only accommodations in Vegas that offer the option of a balcony or terrace. Downstairs in the lobby, the Wicked Spoon brunch buffet earns rave reviews from recent travelers for the delectable dishes served in individual sizes. Between meals, take a dip in one of the hotel's three pools, each with a different atmosphere. Because The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a member of the Marriott family, members of the Marriott Rewards membership program can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.
Bellagio Las Vegas
With an upscale casino reminiscent of those found in Monaco, the Bellagio Las Vegas is a favorite home base for high rollers. The Chihuly glass-decorated lobby is a sight in and of itself and the more than 15 dining options provide visitors with ample places to grab a bite. Guest rooms feature understated design touches inspired by the Italy's Lake Como, as well as luxurious perks like marble foyers and automatic curtain controls. Bear in mind that this MGM Resorts property is big, so you will be doing a lot of walking. But when you need a breather, stop in at the Bellagio Spa for a massage, a soothing soak or a seaweed wrap, or chill out by one of the pools. Also be sure to make some time for the spectacularFountains of Bellagio show. You'll find the Bellagio in the middle of the Strip, across the street from Paris Las Vegas.
The Palazzo Las Vegas
Situated on the northern end of the Strip — right next door to The Venetian — The Palazzo is the updated and modernized kid sister of its kitschy Italian neighbor. Its sleek decor and modern color palette also make it a hit with the swankier crowd. Guests love the spacious suites that come with sunken living rooms perfect for lounging. The deep bathtubs are also popular, although it may be worth hopping out of the tub to spring for some added relaxation: Recent visitors rave about the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, which offers a full menu of massages, along with salon treatments and fitness classes. When you get hungry, head over to The Venetian, where a multitude of dining options are available. While most recent visitors enjoyed the suites, access to multiple pools and the variety of amenities, they cautioned that with the high price tags attached to room rates they expected a bit better service.
Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas
Overall, visitors love the quiet atmosphere and family-friendliness of this oasis on the Strip. This luxury Las Vegas hotel is a gaming-free refuge is said to have some of the speediest (and friendliest) staff in town. Once you've arrived in your room, you'll be welcomed by art deco decor, LED TVs, iPod docking stations and impressive vistas of the Las Vegas skyline. Some recent travelers complained that being relegated to the south end of the Strip keeps them far from the action, but most visitors enjoyed the seclusion. In addition to its tranquil atmosphere, the hotel also boasts an outdoor pool, a fitness center, a spa, two on-site restaurants and three bars. What's more guests are granted access to the Mandalay Bay's 22 restaurants, in addition to its pools. And if you're traveling with youngsters, you'll be happy to know the hotel offers a host of kid-friendly amenities, including a welcome gift and childrens menus in the on-site restaurants.
Aria Resort & Casino
ARIA Resort & Casino's cutting-edge technology is a big hit with travel buffs: Rooms have bedside touch-screen controls that remember your temperature and lighting preferences, outlets for your MP3 player and camera, and gaming consoles are in the 42-inch LCD HD televisions. Obviously, ARIA is popular with conventioneers and others away on business, but still, leisure travelers like its central locale and its bevy of amenities. This MGM Resortsproperty boasts a number of eateries and pools, a spa and salon, as well as several trendy bars and lounges. You'll find the ARIA Resort & Casino mid-Strip, near the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino and the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas.
Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
Recent travel lovers gave the Encore's casino high marks for style, especially in the lobby and common areas. And they appreciate the decor – a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian design elements. The rooms aren't as design-heavy, but still earn high praise for floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious setups and overall cleanliness and maintenance. The Encore also impresses guests with its accommodating staff. Be forewarned: Recent travelers mentioned the hefty fees for partaking in the minibar's treats. But this is the Encore, after all, where most of the guests are high rollers prepared to splurge. If you're having trouble getting a vacancy at the Encore, consider its sister hotel and neighbor, the Wynn Las Vegas.
