The Las Vegas Strip's 10 Best Hotels - Always a Sure Bet

Hotels on the Las Vegas Strip can create an unforgettable experience for their guests. Rooms are designed with comfort and style in mind, featuring upscale amenities and conveniences. The best furnishings and attention to detail–inviting linens, plush towels, trendy toiletries–come together in well-designed, spacious rooms that often have wonderful views of the Strip or of the distant mountains.

On the grounds of most Strip hotels, you’ll find restaurants, shopping, spas, entertainment and generally a casino. The Las Vegas Strip is home to some of the world’s largest hotels, like The Venetian, which is so full of things to do that guests could conceivably never leave the grounds. Many larger hotels on the Strip offer exclusive areas or floors, often with a separate check-in and design, usually with a distinctive luxury boutique style (and price).

The best hotels on the Strip are constantly updating their rooms and amenities, and sometimes they're the result of a complete renovation, 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. Additionally, it has Giada De Laurentiis' only restaurant.

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.
