Where to Stay
There is one certainty when spending any more than 24 hours in Las Vegas – sleep will not feature highly on your agenda. For the ‘city that never sleeps’ has a habit of keeping you blissfully awake for longer than you can ever remember, well not since your teenage days. That said, it’s best to have somewhere to rest your weary legs (and head).
The Las Vegas Strip is a nucleus of grand hotels, casinos, amusement parks, shops and entertainment, that stretches for over four miles. Fortunately, with over 60,000 hotel rooms available, there’s something for everyone, whether you prefer high concept, luxury or boutique hotels, and there’s also a room for every budget. Many Las Vegas hotels are on such a massive scale that they not only have their own pools, but also their own casinos, shopping malls and restaurants.
Each hotel offers something a little different, yet equally amazing, whether it’s the replica of Lake Como at the world famous Bellagio, the statue of liberty at New York-New York, the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel, or the impressive 45 foot lion statue at the iconic, 5,000 room MGM Grand.
Las Vegas hotels go to unprecedented lengths to impress, even if that includes bringing world famous landmarks to town. My favourite is the luxurious Venetian hotel, complete with an awe-inspiring take on Venice’s Grand Canal. A romantic gondola ride is an absolute must, even if you are not a guest of the hotel itself.
