I have been to Las Vegas three times already and I am going this summer again. After three summers in a row, I couldn’t go last year as I just started a new job and couldn’t take holiday leave. I still haven’t decided at which hotels I am going to stay this year. To make a decision easier for you, find out about my favourite Las Vegas hotels below:
Vdara Hotel & Spa
The first year I went to Las Vegas I stayed at the Vdara Hotel. The Vdara opened in December 2009 and has 1495 suites over 57 stories. The hotel won the AAA Four Diamond Award five years in a row since 2011 and suite rates range $149 to $2000 per night. It further won the Forbes Four-Star Award every year since 2012. Vdara is an internationally inspired all-suite hotel and space for those who love the excitement of Las Vegas but prefer to enjoy it in an exclusive, non-gaming and smoke-free environment. The hotel is environmentally friendly and achieved LEED® Gold certification. The Vdara is adjacent to the ARIA Resort&Casino and connected to the Bellagio via pedestrian walkway, offering direct access to the ARIA tram station.
I personally can only recommend Vdara after I stayed a week in one of their Deluxe Suites in 2012. I also like that every suite comes with a dining area and kitchen and you don’t have to walk through a casino floor to get to your room.
Aria Resort & Casino
In 2014 I stayed at the Aria Resort & Casino for eight days and overall I had a very pleasant stay. The facilities are outstanding and the pool area is a dream. Just like the Vdara, the Aria opened in December 2009 and is located within the City Center, an unprecedented development on the Las Vegas Strip. Aria is home to not just one, but two distinct AAA Five Diamond hotel experiences_ Aria Resort&Casino and the Aria Sky Suites. The latter is also a Forbes Five-Star Award winner. The Aria Hotel&Resort has 4004 guest rooms including 568 suites. Rates for deluxe guest rooms range from $149 to $799 and suites from $425 and $7500. The resort also includes a casino with 150,000 square feet of gaming. Further, it has three primary pools and one adults-only pool: Liquid.
Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
Last time I went to Las Vegas I stayed at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas – Terrace Suite and I never wanted to leave the place again. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas opened in December 2010, a year later than the Aria and Vdara. The resort has 2995 rooms featuring oversized residential style living space with expansive one-of-a-kind private terraces and spectacular designs by the acclaimed interior designers and architects. The hotel is just next to the Vdara Hotel and their night club Marquee is one of the best clubs in Las Vegas. I am thinking about staying again in one of their Terrace Suites this year.
