What are the Top Luxury Hotels in Las Vegas? See 9 of the Best…

Travelers come to Las Vegas for a handful of reasons. Always among them is to relax amongst the luxury that inherently flows throughout the city.

Bookending every luxury experience in Las Vegas are the high-end luxury hotels that line the Strip and pepper Downtown Sin City with shimmer lights. 

While you could throw a dart at a map of the Strip and more than likely hit luxury lodging, not all hotels in Las Vegas are lavished and dressed to the nines.

If you’re looking for sheer opulence, below are the top luxury hotels in Las Vegas.

Encore

Just north of The Wynn Resort, set right on the outskirts of the walkable stretch of the Strip, Encore offers a high-end, luxury experience based on the conventions of its opulent sister property.

Why Stay Here

There are few spaces on the Strip that offer the same experience as Encore. In fact, seeing as how the two are closely connected, The Wynn is the only property.

Encore features its own resort rooms, from the 745 square-foot standard room to the 5,829 square-foot three-bedroom duplex. While Encore guests have easy access to The Wynn’s amenities, there are a few unique things on-site that they won’t want to overlook.

Encore’s Best Features

  • Encore Beach Club is a premier day club in Vegas
  • All suite hotel
  • The party continues at the Beach Club at night
  • Encore Esplanade has its own boutique shopping

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Near the center of the Strip, just off Harmon Avenue, next to the Bellagio, and across from Planet Hollywood, the Cosmopolitan is a contemporary space catering to a younger crowd.

Why Stay Here

The Cosmopolitan’s rooms are brimming with modern decor and furnishings, and many feature unrivaled views of the Las Vegas Strip.

The balcony suite overlooks the Fountains of Bellagio, allowing guests to dine on exquisite room service while watching the fountains dance through the night. The expansive casino floor snakes through the property, connecting fine dining, the explosive stage of The Chelsea, and hidden wonders like The Barbershop speakeasy. During the summer, two rooftop pools present an unmatched outdoor experience.

Whether you’re staying in a standard room or the Sky Suites, you won’t be without a perfect view of the Strip or the Las Vegas Valley. You can even book a spot at Vdara, the attached hotel with its own suites. There are plenty of places to eat, many of them on the finer end of the spectrum.

ARIA’s three pools are simple and accessible, just be sure to book your cabana or gazebos well in advance.

Bellagio Resort & Casino

Maybe the Strip’s most famous casino and resort, Bellagio is a classic that sits at the prime location, near the center of Las Vegas Boulevard.

From Fountain views to revamped luxury hotel rooms that capture the meaning of lavishness, there’s no wrong choice when booking a room at Bellagio. Grab a bite at one of several Fountain-facing award-winning restaurants or lounge by the pool in your very own private cabana.
