(Closed) Best Place to Stay in Vegas?

I went to Vegas in April and we stayed at the Hard Rock hotel. We LOVED IT! I will say that it is a very fun atmosphere. I wouldn’t say it is a place for a super relaxation honeymoon. There was so much to do in the hotel that I rarely needed to leave to see anything else. There are shops, restaurants, gambling, a night club, plus 6 acres of pools and cabanas.

The rooms had the most comfortable beds I’ve ever stayed in with white down comforters and we stayed in the newest tower so everything was completely updated. Just a fun little tid bit: This is where the most recent Real World is being filmed 🙂

As for hotel location it is technically off the strip so you could walk to the strip if you wanted to (I think it is about a half mile away) but there are always cabs and limos ready to take you to the strip.

I would highly recommend the hotel because I really enjoyed myself and the accomodations were really nice.

Check out sniqueaway.com.  They always have Vegas deals up. 

Personally, I like to stay off the Strip because I don’t want to deal w/ the smoky casinos.  I stayed a couple of times @ MGM.  Luxor.  Monte Carlo.   I have friends that love the Wynn. I’m thinking of staying @ Platinum Hotel next month for a girls trip.  Check out tripadvisor.com and you’ll get a ton of reviews.

BTW- As long as you don’t stay @ the family hotels, you’ll be fine. 


Good Luck!!!!

I recommend a place that is off the strip: The Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa. It is absolutely gorgeous. I practically lived in Vegas when I was stationed in California and I have always sworn that if I ever go back this would be the place to go to. The views of the Red Rock Canyon are gorgeous and they offer trips into the canyon, kayaking, and horse back riding. The nightlife and the bars are all gorgeous too; tons of glass chanderlies just scream oppulent. Well, pretty much everything does 🙂 Check it out, you won’t be dissapointed.

The signature by MGM grand or vdara- they are very close to the action yet do not have a casino so it’s quiet and romantic. Also, I have stayed at planet Hollywood and the rooms were really nice and the atmosphere was really lively and hip.

Date twin – how fun! Fiance and I love Vegas…where you stay depends on the type of experience you want to have.

For the typical party experience, stay on or near the Strip. My favorite is the Bellagio. You’re in the heart of it all, and no need for a rental car.

If you enjoy golfing, spa, hiking, or anything more like a regular vacation, I second the Red Rock Hotel. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip, and you would definitely want a rental car to get around.

I’ve stayed at Bally’s which was pretty nice and affordable. It is pretty centrally located on the strip. Its across from the bellagio, so you can get a great view of the fountain, and its connected to the paris, so there are a lot of restaurants between the two. The pool is only ok. I’ve also stayed at Caesars, which was really nice! The rooms were excellent, and the pools were awesome. It is also attached to the shops and a bunch of restaurants, as well as really close to other casinos (the flamingo, mirage, bellagio). I would definitely stay there again.

Our favorite hotel is Vdara in the new City Center.  We were just there earlier this week to look at wedding venues.  We stayed in the panoramic suite with 360 degree views of Vegas.

We also like THEhotel at Mandalay Bay but we don’t care for the location.

We prefer hotels without a casino.

The Cosmopolitan is gorgeous, but a little on the pricey side. It’s the newest one on the strip and the location is great.

I like to stay at the Trump. Reason being that it is a totally non-smoking hotel and has no casino, so it is a calm oasis to come back to.

It is about 500 yards off the strip but located directly across from one end of the Fashion Mall, so we used to walk through the mall when it was hot.

Other than that, I would recommend that you pick a hotel that is mid-strip. It will save you lots of walking.

I’ve stayed at the Flamingo, which is right on the strip and close to EVERYTHING. But the rooms were not super nice. I’ve heard Harveys is very nice. Do not stay at the hard rock hotel, it is so far away from all the action.

I liked Bellagio.  Right in the middle of everything and nice pools and rooms!

I’ve stayed at The Venetian, The Palazzo (my fave), Treasure Island (didn’t like that one), and Mandalay Bay (Loved it but at the end of the strip).  I would definitely sign up for their e-mails on-line, as they always email you discounts that you might not find online.

A lot of great suggestions by the bees. 


If you’re looking for something more romantic and secluded, try looking into stay at “Lake Las Vegas.”  As long as you have a car, you can always go to the “Vegas Strip.”



Good luck!

What, may I ask is a “pre-honeymoon”??  I’ve never heard of it but I like the sound of it!!

In Vegas I’ve only ever stayed at the Stratosphere once.  I wouldn’t recommend it not because it wasn’t nice, but because it is way down the end of the strip and you have to take the bus to get to the middle of the strip 🙂
