Attention to detail is a high priority at this hotel. A personal concierge is assigned to each Sky Suite, there are check-in and checkout areas separate from the ARIA Resort guests and, according to recent visitors, the service is unparalleled. As far as rooms go, you'll have the option of one- and two-bedroom suites or penthouses, and – if you really want to splurge – Sky Villas. These accommodations measure 3,370 square feet and include floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows with epic views of Las Vegas. All rooms come with separate living room and bedroom areas, flat-screen TVs and touch-screen consoles that control everything from the entertainment system to the blackout drapes. (Though a few tech-challenged reviewers said they found the controls a bit glitchy and difficult to work.) Outside the accommodations, visitors have access to a private pool, an art gallery and a lounge with free food and drink amenities, such as a daily wine and cheese pairing. Plus, guests have access to the amenities and facilities at the ARIA Resort, including its multiple restaurants and pools, the spa, the casino and nightlife options.Free ParkingFree WiFi

And they appreciate the decor – a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian design elements. The rooms aren't as design-heavy, but still earn high praise for floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious setups and overall cleanliness and maintenance. The Encore also impresses guests with its accommodating staff. Be forewarned: Recent travelers mentioned the hefty fees for partaking in the minibar's treats. But this is the Encore, after all, where most of the guests are high rollers prepared to splurge. If you're having trouble getting a vacancy at the Encore, consider its sister hotel and neighbor, the Wynn Las Vegas.Free ParkingFree WiFi
- Read MoreThis sprawling resort – with its huge emphasis on natural light, greenery and other earthy elements – is perhaps the first central Las Vegas hotel to master the feeling of seclusion rather than themed chaos. And the rooms are consistently called the best non-suite accommodations on the Strip. Recent travelers found lots to love in the Wynn – the top-rated Andrea's fine dining restaurant and the posh casino, to name a few things – but not everyone loves the price. You'll pay a pretty penny for everything here (and a daily resort fee on top of that), although most visitors say it's worth it the splurge. The Wynn enjoys a centralized location with Encore, The Palazzo and The Venetian all within walking distance.Free WiFi

Obviously, ARIA is popular with conventioneers and others away on business, but still, leisure travelers like its central locale and its bevy of amenities (though there is a $39 resort fee). This MGM Resorts property boasts a number of eateries and pools, a spa and salon, as well as several trendy bars and lounges. You'll find the ARIA Resort & Casino mid-Strip, near the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino and the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas.Free WiFi

The Chihuly glass-decorated lobby is a sight in and of itself and the more than 15 dining options provide visitors with ample places to grab a bite. Guest rooms feature understated design touches inspired by Italy's Lake Como, as well as luxurious perks like marble foyers and automatic curtain controls. Bear in mind that this MGM Resorts property is big, so you will be doing a lot of walking. But when you need a breather, stop in at the Bellagio Spa for a massage, a soothing soak or a seaweed wrap, or chill out by one of the pools. Also be sure to make some time for the spectacular Fountains of Bellagio show. You'll find the Bellagio in the middle of the Strip, across the street from Paris Las Vegas. Keep in mind, the Bellagio Tower Suites are part of the Leading Hotels of the World, so Leaders Club members can earn extra perks here.5.0-star Hotel ClassFree WiFi

Rooms are comfortable yet contemporary, thanks to a palette of cool blues and bright whites. Accommodations also house plenty of luxe amenities like spacious, marble-floored bathrooms and separate seating areas. Plus these are some of the only accommodations in Vegas that offer the option of a balcony or terrace (available in some suite categories). Downstairs in the lobby, the Wicked Spoon brunch buffet earns rave reviews from recent travelers for the delectable dishes served in individual sizes (in fact, nearly all of the Cosmopolitan's restaurants receive two thumbs up). Between meals, take a dip in one of the hotel's three pools, each with a different atmosphere. Recent travelers also praised the hotel's friendly staff and the concierge's helpful knowledge. Because The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a member of the Marriott family, members of the Marriott Bonvoy membership program can accrue or redeem points by choosing to stay here.Free WiFi

Its sleek decor and modern color palette also make it a hit with the swankier crowd. Guests love the spacious suites that come with sunken living rooms perfect for lounging. The deep bathtubs are also popular, although it may be worth hopping out of the tub to spring for some added relaxation: Recent visitors rave about the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, which offers a full menu of massages, along with salon treatments and fitness classes. When you get hungry, head over to The Venetian, where a multitude of dining options are available. While most recent visitors enjoyed the suites, access to multiple pools and the variety of amenities, they cautioned that with the high price tags attached to room rates they expected a bit better service.Free ParkingFree WiFi

Outside, Venice's top landmarks like the Campanile, St. Mark's Square and the Doge's Palace are recreated. Inside, the resort begins to push the kitsch envelope with the Grand Canal Shoppes inside an indoor replica of Venice. You can even take a gondola ride from the lobby to the shops, and despite the cheese factor and the price, many say the ticket is worth it. The suite-style digs have separate sunken living rooms, large windows and Italian marble bathrooms. Still, some say the hotel's location on the north end of the Strip is a bit inconvenient as it's removed from some of the more popular restaurants and nightclubs. But guests still heap praise on the accommodating staff at the luxurious Canyon Ranch spa + fitness (some areas require an extra fee), and the variety of dining choices on-site.Free ParkingFree WiFi

The hotel's theme is ripped straight from the Julius Caesar's Rome, with columns, marble gods and goddesses, plus a toga-clad wait staff serving cocktails on the casino floor. And it's not lacking in entertainment options either: Guests love the sprawling casino floor and the hundreds of designer outlets found at the Forum Shops, plus the plethora of dining venues. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace – a concert venue with regular acts like Celine Dion, Rod Stewart and Jerry Seinfeld – is another popular perk. While visitors love all the hotel's amenities, they do warn that travelers should be aware of additional charges for early check-in and the resort fee. You'll find Caesars mid-Strip, nestled between the Bellagio and the Mirage.5.0-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

The enormous 87,000-square-foot casino is airy and open, echoing the resort's design elements of natural wood, stonework and warm, amber-hued light fixtures. Recent guests loved the rooms, listing the Egyptian cotton linens, iPod docks and spacious bathrooms with soaking bathtubs as favorite features. And the popular backyard area – 3 acres of space speckled with wading and swimming pools, a sandy beach and private cabanas – is also a big hit with travelers. The resort is also home to multiple dining options and a spa. If you start to get a little stir crazy, though, there's a complimentary shuttle that will drop you off at Fashion Show Mall on the Strip.5.0-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

Plus, the Studio B Buffet has a live action cooking studio so guests can watch as chefs prepare delectable cuisine. Recent travelers also loved the sleek and modern guest rooms with their floor-to-ceiling windows (even in the bathrooms), HD televisions and in-mirror bathroom TVs.

Travelers love the on-site restaurants like Hank's Fine Steaks and Tides Seafood & Sushi Bar, and give high praise to the approachable and friendly staff members. Despite the picturesque vineyards and Italianate architecture, the hotel still provides a Sin City vibe. The casino area has gaming tables and a popular Race & Sports Book, as well as a multiscreen movie theater. Several bars are peppered around the property from the lobby to the pool.

Gamblers enjoy the 440 slot machines and 66 table games that occupy the hotel's 40,000-square-foot casino, while partygoers rave about the late-night lounges and clubs, including the 65,000-square-foot Drai's Beachclub-Nightclub. But there are plenty of tamer offerings for guests, too. You can take in some sun by The Cromwell's beach-themed rooftop pool or, if you're a shopaholic, wander into the 1940s-esque Curios; you can find everything from chess piece candles and gin and tonic-scented mustache wax to top hats and Ray Ban sunglasses. And should you crave a bite, stop by GIADA, the on-site Italian eatery that's celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis' first restaurant. Previous diners recommended the chicken Marsala meatballs and the lemon potatoes, although they also cautioned that the portions are small and prices are high. When you're ready for bed, make your way back to your Parisian-inspired digs. Recent travelers appreciated the trendy decor and top-notch amenities like hardwood floors, rain showers, pillow-top mattresses and 55-inch flat-screen TVs.4.5-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

Situated about a 30-minute drive north of the Strip, the hotel is a hit with travelers who are looking for an off-the-beaten path locale. Guests also favor the the tasteful and modern furnishings in the guest rooms, which start at 400 square feet and boast flat-screen TVs, minifridges and complimentary bottled water. The casino also wins over guests, in part for its lower limit tables, averaging around $5. Step outside the casino and you'll find plenty more to do on the property: a full-size movie theater is on-site, a palm tree-lined pool is ideal for kicking back in the desert sun and five restaurants (as well as a Starbucks) are available to choose from. Keep in mind: The hotel doesn't provide any transportation, so you'll need to rent a car if you fly into the Vegas area. Another detail to note: The hotel charges a daily $12.99 resort fee.

And when you want to explore Las Vegas further, there's a monorail system that will take you to other casinos nearby. Travelers give Mandalay Bay mixed reviews, though; some complain that there are too many kids at the pool and man-made beach (it's known as one of the most family-friendly hotels in town), but on the flip side others describe a relaxing ambiance at the poolside cabanas. Rooms feature spa tubs, floor-to-ceiling windows, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and iHome radios. If you're really hankering for a quieter atmosphere, you can book a room upstairs at the Four Seasons, which occupies the Mandalay Bay Tower's top five floors.

Many previous travelers said that they felt pampered in their elevated dwellings, complete with hardwood and marble floors and kitchens, not to mention Italian linens and spectacular Vegas views. The property is also home to a casino, a pool and several restaurants and nightclubs. Most guests give the Palms Place glowing reviews for an off-Strip resort, citing the chic design, kind staff and long list of amenities as reasons why they would return. Plus, the Studio Suites offer what many recent visitors consider a great value for the price, although you will have to pay additional charges to use the property's spa amenities.4.5-star Hotel ClassFree ParkingFree WiFi

Swim-up blackjack tables near the ever-popular Rehab Beach Club and the casino's 24-hour Center Bar help create a party-centric vibe. But some recent travelers offer mixed reviews on the staff: Some said they encountered poorly trained or uninterested workers, while others said their experience with the hotel's employees was wonderful. Lodgers were more complimentary of the accommodations, which feature stocked minbars, plasma TVs, iPod docking stations and luxury linens. Recent guests recommended booking a room in the HRH All-Suite Tower or Paradise Tower, as the Casino Tower is on the older side. Many also praised this Hard Rock outpost's eight restaurants, which dish up everything from steaks to tacos to sushi.Free ParkingFree WiFi

And although the hotel gets credit for the sheer breadth of commitment to the theme, traversing through the rainforest to get around can become tiresome after a while. The Mirage does have some of the nicest swimming holes in Las Vegas, though, from the oasis-like pool out back to the more private, adults-only Bare pool (Las Vegas code for topless) nestled around the corner. The popular Beatles-inspired LOVE Cirque du Soleil show finds its home here, as does one of the best casinos on the Strip. When you're ready to brave the crowds, you'll find The Mirage Hotel & Casino sandwiched between Treasure Island and the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.

Not that you really need to find your way to the door to leave, anyway: The MGM houses more than 5,000 rooms and suites, 15 restaurants and nine entertainment venues, including the popular Hakkasan Nightclub and Wet Republic Ultra Pool complex. Top entertainers include DJs Calvin Harris and Steve Aoki, and the acrobats of Cirque du Soleil's Kà. And despite its confusing and immense layout, the MGM still fares well with Vegas travelers – though they do recommend you pack a comfortable pair of shoes. You'll find this MGM Resorts property on the Strip, which participates in the brand's M life Rewards program, across the street from the New York - New York Hotel and Casino.

Though its location is tought to beat, the hotel's interiors receive less favorable reviews. The rooms are described as comfortable and spacious thanks to amenities like flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms. But recent lodgers were also quick to note that the European chic decor is tired and outdated. Still, you'll find plenty of French cuisine options, including an on-site JJ's Boulangerie selling fresh baguettes, and plenty of French landmarks, like the Eiffel Tower. But aside from the kitschy decor, the property won favor with recent visitors for its friendly and accommodating staff and its prime perch on the Strip, which many reviewers said is enough of a reason to return.

Some recent guests went for a different pop culture theme instead, booking a stay in the Hot Pink Suite that's decorated from top to bottom in a bright fuchsia and Barbie theme. And still others splurged for entertaining accommodations that feature two-lane bowling alleys or basketball half-courts. The Palms also has plenty of basic guest rooms designed with comfort in mind for both adults and kids; the IMAX movie theater and family-friendly food court earn points with the younger set. There are two chinks in the armor, however: First, the Palms Casino Resort is consistently overrun with celebrity clientele seeking the best Vegas nightlife (and usually finding it). Second, the Palms is located about 2 miles west of the Strip.

If you're looking for lower stakes gambling and smoke-free poker rooms, you probably won't want to leave. Guests also like South Point's diverse entertainment options from its horse rodeos and BMX biking events to its movie theater and bowling alley. Before a show, save some time to eat your way through one of South Point's many dining options.

But don't expect the Wild West decor of yore; after a refurbishment in the late '70s, the Golden Nugget is now a popular choice for affordable luxury. The rooms are small, but travelers report on their refreshingly modern feel. Guests also love perks like The Tank, a secured waterslide that goes through a shark-filled tank, and the Gold Diggers dance club's outdoor balcony that overlooks Fremont Street. After a late night, guests can retreat to rooms adorned with feather down comforters, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and spanning views of the Vegas Strip – the large size of the bathrooms and the notably comfortable beds are favorites among recent travelers.

TI – as it's now called – currently offers a more adult-centered experience, with a lively pool party scene and multiple bars and clubs. Most recent guests enjoyed the makeover, but warn against overcrowding; a few unlucky guests experienced long wait times at check-in and checkout.
