Be Pampered and Treated Like a High Roller at These Ten Luxury Vegas Hotels

While you're in Vegas, you can stay at a hotel that gives you a great deal on a functional room, or you can choose a property with rooms so plush that you may be tempted to stay in and order room service. If you're leaning toward the luxury accommodations, you'll find a wealth of multi-star hotels to choose from.

The newer luxury hotels on the Strip have abandoned the elaborate themes of bygone eras and adopted a sleek, modern look. The Wynn and Encore, Aria, Trump, and Four Seasons are dedicated to offering guests large rooms, superior room amenities, and first-class on-site restaurants and shops. If there's a theme here, you might call it "elegant and award winning."

Not all luxury hotels have decided that less is more in the design department. The Venetian and Palazzo bring a touch of Old World Italy to the Las Vegas Strip, and they've made sure to include the opulence of this former time. Suites, an award-winning spa, and an extensive collection of first-class shops and restaurants give guests the option to go first-class in everything they do in Vegas.

The hip and modern Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas puts a new spin on luxury, a just left-of-center kind of spin, with a three-story chandelier bar, modern art, and noted restaurants. The rooms are tasteful and well-appointed, and some include balconies. Nearby, the ultra-luxurious Mandarin Oriental offers guests a West meets Old Shanghai feeling. You won't find a casino here, but you will find a refined atmosphere that almost feels like you aren't in Vegas at all.
