Nevada may be known for its huge resort casinos, but there are many welcoming boutique hotels throughout the Silver State. For destinations such as Lake Tahoe, Reno, and Las Vegas, we’ve tracked down some unique options, including velvet-upholstered Victorian splendor, and minimalist Asian chic. Read on for Culture Trip’s top picks for boutique hotels in Nevada.

While the Cromwell meets the Vegas Strip requirements of a casino floor, a cocktail lounge, and a celebrity chef, it does so on a smaller scale and in a more polished style. Linger over the lighter side of Italian dining at Giada De Laurentiis’s the Giada restaurant, or sip an espresso martini at the elegant Bound Cocktail Lounge. Visit Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub day or night, where big-name DJs hold court. Rooms combine continental touches, such as reclaimed trunk tables and velvet wallpaper, with Vegas elements, including mirrors surrounded by lights and bigger bottles in the minibar.

The Delano Las Vegas sits inside the Mandalay Bay and has a separate lobby, a restaurant, a bar, and a spa.

The BATHHOUSE Spa is soothingly minimalist with deep-blue walls, a stone floor, and treatments such as the Thai massage and milk and honey manicure. In the intimate Skyfall Lounge, enjoy well-crafted cocktails and top-shelf views of the Strip, while the Rivea restaurant takes Mediterranean dining to new heights.

Now from $30 per night
The El Cortez Hotel and Casino is one of Las Vegas’s few unchanged casino hotels – from the outside, that is. It’s undergone numerous renovations over the years, including Siegel’s 1941 restaurant, named for the hotel’s original owner, mobster Bugsy Siegel. Accommodation ranges from budget-friendly rooms to the hip, Hollywood Regency-style spaces in the adjacent El Cortez Cabana Suites. Alternatively, rent the penthouse pad of past owner Jackie Gaughan – a time capsule of old-school casino-mogul style. From the smoked mirrors of the built-in cocktail bar to the golden dolphin taps in the marble bathroom, this space is perfect for high rollers.

    Mount Charleston Lodge and Cabins

    Map View

    Escape from the lights of Las Vegas at an altitude of more than 7,000ft (2,134m). The Mount Charleston Lodge sits on a mountain peak in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s Kyle Canyon, a lush wilderness of trees, wildflowers, and even snow. The chalet-like lodge serves simple dishes, such as burgers and pizzas, along with a delightful collection of warmed cocktails like hot buttered rum. The adjacent collection of log cabins lets you rough it with gas fireplaces, jetted tubs, and patios for stargazing. Wifi seems unnecessary in the face of natural majesty.
