Where to Stay on the Las Vegas Strip: Your Best Hotel Bets

Hotels on the Las Vegas Strip strive to give their guests experiences that will keep them coming back. Rooms at the best Strip hotels include the most up-to-date amenities and conveniences. Inviting linens, plush towels and trendy toiletries come together in well-designed, spacious room. Panoramic, breath-taking, Instagram-worthy views are also common.

Most Strip hotels have fine restaurants, shopping, spas, entertainment and usually a casino--although not always. 

The Las Vegas Strip is home to some of the world’s largest hotels, like The Venetian, which is so packed with things to do a guest could conceivably never leave the grounds. Like many large properties, it’s filled with amenities--restaurants, shops, shows and nightclubs.

The best hotels on the Strip are constantly updating their rooms and amenities, and sometimes they get completely renovated, like The Cromwell. In its prior life, this small hotel was Bill’s Gambling Hall (and the Barbary Coast before that), and today it’s following the trend toward smaller, boutique-style hotels.

Whether you’d like to stay in a hotel designed to look like a bygone era, or in a place with a sleek, modern style, you’ll find a Vegas hotel that’s a sure bet for your tastes. For more ideas, take a look at our list of the ten best hotels on the Las Vegas Strip.
