The Las Vegas Strip has to be one of the most famous entertainment strips in the world. It is a world of neon signs, huge hotels, magnificent fountains, and if you are lucky you may spot an Elvis or two. Not only is it the world’s gambling center it is also home to some of the very finest hotels. Big entertainment stars regularly play in the huge ballrooms of the Park MGM, The Venetian, and the Bellagio. And tourists from every corner of the world flock to Las Vegas to enjoy the 24hr fun and frolics. If you are to visit Las Vegas in the near future here are some ideas of where to stay.
Perhaps the Bellagio is the most iconic of all the hotels on the famous Las Vegas Strip. This famous hotel probably has the most notorious history of all the hotels in Las Vegas. The Bellagio has been featured in so many gangster novels and films it is synonymous with the past history of the mob and the early days of this desert town. The heart of the resort is the magnificent Conservatory which is home to an exotic horticultural world with exotic wildflowers in bloom. There is also a fantastic fine art gallery that would put some museums to shame. All-in-all the Bellagio has moved with the times but has also kept in contact with the glorious past history of this most famous of Las Vegas hotels.
One of the main strip hotels that does not actually have its own casino is the Waldorf Astoria. In a way getting away from the tourist crowds of exciting gamblers is quite refreshing. And when you wake up in the middle of the night the temptation of taking the elevator down to the gambling level is simply not there. Formerly the Mandarin Hotel, it changed its allegiance in 2018 when the Astoria group took control. The Astoria’s famous 23rd floor has spectacular views, and when visiting Las Vegas, a trip to the Astoria for afternoon tea overlooking the strip is a must-do event.
The Venetian is one of the more modern concept hotels in Las Vegas. And when it merged with the Palazzo hotel earlier this year it can now offer more than seven thousand rooms. The two giant hotels are now connected through a labyrinth of canals and corridors. Every suite in this luxurious hotel features its own sunken living room and for a slight extra charge guests can upgrade to have access to the fabulous Canyon Ranch Spa and two rather special pool decks. If you happen to enjoy Italian food, then you are in luck as the Factory Kitchen serves up some exquisite and authentic dishes from Italy. Of course, the Palazzo is famous for its casino and whilst you are enjoying a flutter or two at the tables the Electra Cocktail Club will provide the perfect drinks. Enjoy any one of these hotels when staying in Las Vegas and your visit to Nevada will remain in the memory a considerable amount of time.
