The best hotels in Las Vegas offer luxury, style, and amazing amenities. These hotels have beautifully appointed, spacious rooms designed to meet any traveler’s needs–whether you’re in Vegas for business or pleasure. An abundance of tech-friendly features in rooms appointed with the best in furnishings, linens, and toiletries creates an inviting space you’ll want to linger in. Some upscale Las Vegas hotels have chosen to go without casinos, like the Mandarin Oriental, in a trend that’s becoming more common along the Strip. The exclusive hotel-in-a-hotel concept, which includes the Four Seasons, has also gained popularity, lending a boutique aspect to a Vegas hotel stay in a novel new way. The best Vegas hotels take pampering their guests seriously: expect to find spas, top caliber restaurants, and a close proximity to luxury stores. Travelers with children or pets often find these hotels are ready to accommodate all members of the family–and it never hurts to have a concierge on hand to set up activities and sitters. Spacious suites and villas can give guests plenty of room to accommodate more than one person, although having a Las Vegas suite all to yourself is an indulgence that can make you feel like a true high-roller.
