The Best Hotels in Las Vegas – Our Experts’ Top 5 Picks

Do you want to be right in the action or get a slice of the high life? Our experts have recommended our top 5 Las Vegas hotels below.

Viva Las Vegas!

Nevada’s oasis of glitz, gambling and games attracts massive numbers of visitors every year. The hard part is picking where to stay.

The best hotels in Vegas are basically pop culture legends at this point, immortalised in countless Hollywood movies where the famous Strip is short hand for luxury.

But where to choose? Las Vegas hotels come in all shapes and sizes. The good ones are all special for their own reasons. Our expert travel advisors have shared their top recommendations and what’s great about them – here’s our top 5 picks for hotels in Las Vegas.

1. MGM Grand

Entertainment hub

The MGM Grand is often called the Entertainment Authority. That’s because of its live sport events, its world-class musical line up, magic shows, celebrity chefs, its nightclub and more. And that’s without mentioning its well-appointed rooms decorated in styles both contemporary and classical, the perfect place to lay your head after a day of taking in Vegas’ hustle and bustle.  It’s also got a full-service spa and pool.

2. Excalibur Hotel & Casino

Popular Choice

The Excalibur’s one of the most popular hotel choices for Las Vegas holiday makers. If you’re looking for an affordable hotel that’s near most of the main attractions this is a great choice. It’s an impressive place with more than 4000 rooms, and a huge casino of its own too.

3. Flamingo Hotel & Casino

Our choice for central location

The Flamingo’s ideal for you if you want to be where right where the buzz is. It’s right by the Strip. And it’s just a short walk to all the top attractions like Caesars Palace, Paris Las Vegas and more. It’s got tons of its own shows on, bars and nightlife hotspots too.

4. New York New York

Family friendly

Las Vegas might be known as Sin City but there’s plenty of kid-friendly entertainment on offer too. The New York New York’s signature is its high-octane roller coaster that wraps around the hotel, it’s got one of the city’s biggest arcades and its recreations of famous NYC neighbourhoods are something to behold.

5. Aria Resort & Casino/Venetian Resort & Casino

Our choice for Luxury

Okay, so this one’s a cheat. But we just couldn’t decide between these two fantastic luxury hotels.

The Aria’s a truly dazzling 61-storey structure that’s a stand out on the strip. It’s got tech-enabled booking, several top class restaurants and bars and a luxurious spa.

As for the Venetian, this luxury resort boasts some of the biggest standard rooms out there, nearly twice the size of other rooms in Vegas, and of course the famous Gondolas.
