Bellagio Hotel & Casino
Bellagio Las Vegas is a AAA five diamond resort and casino that just can’t be missed! It is known for the exemplary Bellagio Fountains. Inspired by the villages of Europe, the fountains put on a magical show for you every night!
In addition to the fountains and an amazing casino, you can’t miss the opportunity to luxury shop, dine in their 12+ world-class restaurants, get a poolside massage, walk through the magnificent seasonal botanical garden, and be stunned by top class performers at the “O” by Cirque du Soleil shows. Be prepared to be amazed!
In a hotel so grand, the rooms won’t disappoint you either. Whether you are looking to watch the Bellagio fountain show from your room or soak in the views of Las Vegas, you are going to enjoy your stay at this grand hotel and will keep coming back for more! Click here for details on the hotel.
The Venetian Resort Las Vegas
Another one of my favorites! I love the Venetian especially for it’s extravagant decor, literally feels like you are in Venice! You can’t miss the gondola rides here. There is an option for an indoor and outdoor ride, I recommend going for the outdoor ride especially if the weather is nice.
In addition to the amazing amenities and entertainment, the rooms at the Venetian are a lot larger compared to the other hotels in the area. Click here for more info on the hotel.
If you don’t spending $30,000-$40,000 per night for a room, then Caesar’s grand suite might be a great option for you! Or you can stay in one of their regular rooms like me and imagine you are living like a Roman king or queen.
In addition to the amazing rooms, Caesars is also home to some of the famous celebrity chefs restaurants such as The Cromwell by Giada, Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, etc. Click here for info on the Caesars Palace.
Green Valley Ranch Resort Spa and Casino
Green Valley Ranch hotel is located about 10 miles from the Strip. I have stayed at this resort at least a couple of times and enjoyed my stay every single time. The property is quiet spacious and has a lot of great amenities including a casino.
I may or may not have gambled here and won some money…like $18 LOL! The Mediterranean-inspired casino resort has some beautiful, upscale rooms. And if you are feeling spendy, the suites come with living space and garden access!
The resort has about 7 upscale and casual resorts, 5 lounges/bar and a bake shop! If you are someone who is looking to visit Vegas and would rather skip the Strip, Green Valley Ranch is your best choice! Click here for more info on the resort.
Ballys Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
Can’t complete my list without an honorable mention of the Ballys Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Thanks to a last minute bachelorette trip, I was able to experience this gorgeous hotel.
Ballys is conveniently located in the heart of the Vegas Strip, across from the Bellagio. My room had the best views, I was able to see the Bellagio fountains show and the Eiffel Tower light up from my bed! Since the hotel was so central, I didn’t have a need to rent a car or even use Uber, as I was able to walk to my destinations on the Strip.
As for the other amenities of the hotel, the casino was pretty busy most of the nights, the rooms itself were neat and clean, check in/out was done via kiosks, and the best part, we had enough points racked up so the rooms were basically free ( just had to pay taxes and resort fees). Click here for info on the hotel.
Vegas has a ton of hotels/resorts to choose from, especially when it comes to the Strip. With all these options, it does get a little challenging for a first timers visit to the sin city. However, I have narrowed the options for you to my 5 recommended hotels. You may have noticed that I did not talk about pricing for any of these hotels, and the reason being the room rates in Vegas can be extremely volatile! You can possibly get a nice room at the Bellagio for under $100/night or pay $1000+ for that same room on another night.
Hopefully, I have inspired you to book your next trip to Vegas and stay in one these amazing hotels! I would love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below.
