Las Vegas can be part of a USA multi centre holiday itinerary which also might include Los Angeles and San Francisco or you could spend all your holiday in Las Vegas. That’s what I did last time I went to Las Vegas. I spent a week there and flew to the Grand Canyon for a day.
So, where can we recommend you stay in Las Vegas ? Well, of course, it partly depends on your budget. There is such a huge choice of hotels in Las Vegas which is good news because you will always find that there are special offers and bargains to be had. Las Vegas has suffered from a decline in visitor numbers because of the recession and several hotels have closed but there are still more than enough hotel rooms to go around.
Las Vegas is a city in the desert. It is only about 30 minutes by plane to the Grand Canyon so it is possible to easily go there for the day. Las Vegas is mainly about The Las Vegas Strip or “The Strip” as it is called. This is where most of the hotels are and it is a wide busy road lined with very large hotels, casinos, restaurants, shops and bars. This is where you need to be staying and your hotel needs to be as close to the centre of The Strip as possible. As a rough guide, the centre is where the Bellagio Hotel is located. Having said that, anywhere on the Las Vegas Strip is good to stay as there is a monorail system that connects many of the hotels.

At the far top end of the Las Vegas Strip is the Stratosphere Hotel. This is a great value hotel but it is not in the centre of all the action and it is quite a walk or maybe a short taxi ride to the centre of The Strip. The Stratosphere is one of the tallest structures in the USA and so has outstanding views across Las Vegas. A room at the Stratosphere will cost about £20 per person per night depending on the time of year you go.
Further down the Las Vegas Strip is the Circus Circus Hotel. This is another great value hotel and is a little nearer the action at the centre of The Strip. Rooms at Circus Circus will cost from about £15 per person per night. Circus Circus is fairly close to the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
Further south you will find the Trump Hotel and the fabulous 5 star Wynn & Encore. 3 nights at the Wynn inn a king size room will cost from £100 per person depending on the time of travel. After that you will find Treasure Island and a room here will cost roughly £60 per person for 3 nights.
If you are looking for something different then the Venetian Hotel might be worth considering. The Venetian is huge and incorporates its own Venice style canals with gondolas, Italian style shopping and lots of Italian restaurants and cafes.
Other popular hotels include The Mirage and the famous Caesars Palace. Room rates at The Mirage start at about £100 per person for a 3 night stay. Caesars Palace is an amazing hotel. It features its own shopping centre called The Forum Shops as well the the world famous theatre where Celine Dion at Caesars Palace is presently having another extended show. 3 nights at Caesars Palace will cost from £140 per person.
Another world famous hotel in Las Vegas is The Bellagio. It’s famous for its fountains which make a magnificent spectacle every hour and maybe because it was featured in the movie Oceans 11 starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt. 3 nights at the Bellagio Hotel will cost from £200 per person.
There are several other Las Vegas hotels worth considering between The Bellagio and the southern end of The Strip. There is Paris, Mandarin and Monte Carlo hotels. Located on a large cross roads are New York New York and MGM Grand as well as Tropicana and Excalibur. These are are all reasonable hotels although rates at the MGM Grand are probably the cheapest as prices start from about £80 per person for 3 nights.
Two other hotels worth mentioning and well worth considering are the Egyptian Pyramid style hotel and Egyptain themed The Luxur and the magnificent Mandalay Bay. These two hotels are at the far end of the Las Vegas Strip but the monorail system stops right outside these two hotels so it is relatively easy to get around. Room rates at The Luxor are very good value as 3 nights will cost from about £65 per person for a 3 night stay. A 3 night stay at the five star Mandalay Bay will cost from £110 per person.
There isn’t a better time to visit Las Vegas as room rates are as low as they have ever been. Las Vegas is a fantastic place to visit. It’s not just about casino’s. Las Vegas is in many peoples opinion the entertainment capital of the world!
