Where to Stay

Aria Las Vegas is one of the most impressive gaming resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. With over 4,000 guest rooms, the Aria exceeds expectations at any level of room type. The convenience of being located on the City Center campus provides a variety of shopping, dining, entertainment and gaming at different venues all within walking distance. Aria provides many great options for families as well, such as the Art Walk, Cirque du Soleil, Pool and Cabana and great restaurant options. (Make sure to request the special bath amenities for the little guys!) The Spa at Aria is one of the most relaxing experiences you will enjoy during your stay, with the Ganbanyoku, heated-stone beds and “Shio” salt room being a pleasurable highlight. Style is modern and eclectic with a cool ambiance in an exclusive space.

Four Seasons Las Vegas was a pioneer of luxury resorts on the Strip being one of the first and only resorts to be conceived without a casino. A beautiful foray leads you to the sophisticated comforts of a five-star resort you would find anywhere in the world. An intimate pool setting and access to the Mandalay Beach for hotel guests. Two fabulous dining options offer a variety of menus; at Verandah find brunch to poolside lunch to high tea and dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. At Charlie Palmer enjoy a cocktail in the lounge, then indulge in gourmet steak and seafood dinner in a candle-lit room. As always, The Four Seasons offers great amenities for your little entourage to feel at home.

The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is definitely on the hip side of the flip side. Stay here with tweens or teens or fly solo on this one. The groove here is all about the good times with a retro nod to a modern twist. Enjoy the art throughout the resort. Jump in on a game of Foozball at the Boulevard Pool. Catch the latest local band at the Book and Stage. Grab a hand crafted cocktail by a certified mixologist at the Vesper. Dine at some of the hottest restaurants on the Strip. Better yet, leave the kiddos at home. It really is just the right amount of wrong. You don’t want to confuse the young ones.

Bellagio Las Vegas is still one of the classiest joints in Las Vegas. European elegance is the name of the game, and everything about the place is still consistent and satisfying. The aromas, the music, the dining and shopping…it doesn’t miss a beat. With the introduction of Hyde and Lily, there really is no reason to leave the Bellagio for better entertainment, not to mention, it is home to one of the most coveted Cirque du Soleil shows on the Strip, “O”. From the dancing fountains to the Gallery of Fine Art, Bellagio is a great place to bring the little entourage, and can be quite accomodating in both the rooms, restaurants and pool areas. Don’t forget to visit the award winning Conservatory with changing seasonal decor, the Chocolate Fountain at Jean-Philippe, and the Aria Express for a round trip tram ride to City Center, Monte Carlo, and back.

I love to visit the Bellagio, the ceiling is so pretty & I can not pass the chance to walk through the flowers. I think we’ve seen “O” 4x now. Thanks for sharing.

Great list! I will be attending a wedding at the Four Seasons this summer and love that it is such an oasis without a casino on the strip.

I have been meaning to check out the Aria!!! I’ve heard such great things about it. My favorite so far, is Mandalay Bay. They are always so very kind, helpful and super for guests with disabilities such as myself. I have never had 1 issues they didn’t go out of their way to help me with. It’s an important factor when I decide where to go play/stay!

All great places to stay. We are so lucky here in Las Vegas to have so many top hotels to choose from, each with a different thing to see!

I have been to restaurants in the Aria but would to stay there or at the Cosmopoiltan next time we go. We usually stay at the Encore or Wynn and though they are nice, it would be nice to have a change.
