The glitz and glamor, the gambling and grub, the girls and the guys; Las Vegas is an amazing vacation destination – but don’t imagine for a second that it’s Nevada’s only hotspot for places to stay. The Silver State is brimming with hotels – both in and around Vegas – that are simply the best in every way imaginable for travelers of all stripes.

1. NoMad Las Vegas

Oak hardwood floors. Pedestal bathtubs. A billiard table. NoMad Las Vegas majors in luxury suites that look like squillion-dollar homes. Classically furnished with vibrant artwork, they make you feel like a high-roller even if you’ve never betted a cent. NoMad is also the only smoke-free casino resort on the Strip – a breath of fresh air for you, your kids, and your pets. Keep your phone out in the lift because you might catch Lady Gaga or Cher off to their in-house show.

2. Wynn Las Vegas

Believe it or not, you can have the entire Vegas experience without leaving the Wynn resort. We’re talking the works: parties at the EBC Pool, bottle service at Intrigue Sports Lounge, sampling world-class robatayaki (Japanese barbecue) at Mizumi, and a credit card spree at Bottega Veneta. Add in a few hours at the casino, ogle views of the Strip from your suite’s balcony, and you’ve got yourself an iconic Vegas experience – all under one roof.

3. The Palazzo at the Venetian

Give yourself that Italian vacation you’ve always wanted (minus the airfare) by booking a room in the Palazzo at the Venetian. Strolling around the tower is an experience in itself, with hand-painted ceilings and art installations everywhere you look. A gondola ride, even solo, on the Grand Canal is a must, as is dining at Canaletto in St Mark’s Square. Dance alongside Drake, Kim Kardashian and Madonna (if you’re lucky) at TAO Nightclub or lounge on the pool deck in your private cabana.

4. Park MGM

Does Park MGM offer the ultimate Las Vegas experience? Whatever it does, its intimate suites, art program, and affordable restaurants redefine what it means to live Las Vegas. This hotel wants you to be you, whether that means dancing all night in the club or letting the Cirque du Soleil team do the moving and grooving for you. With no pressure to roll dice at the casino, splurge on steaks in the restaurants instead or spend hours by the pool; your stay here will be a breeze.

5. Aria Resort and Casino

Here’s one for tech-lovers – you have to log in for your stay at Aria Las Vegas. It’s just the ticket for business travelers or anyone obsessed with the latest gadgets: each suite has full connectivity for nearly every device imaginable and one-touch controls for ordering food, requesting reservations, and much more. Please attempt to disconnect, though, because the Vegas views from your suite and world-class Cirque du Soleil shows are best experienced IRL.

6. Delano Las Vegas

Instead of gambling on a roadside motel, go all-in at Delano Las Vegas and ready yourself for the Butler Service Experience. That’s right – a personal butler, bartender, shoe-shiner, and even pet-sitter at your beck and call as soon as you arrive. Skip the queues with priority reservations for restaurants, shows, and the spa. Got the munchies? There’s an exclusive late-night menu. Want to sleep in? You’ll get a late check-out, so feel free to party all night on the Strip.

7. LINQ Hotel and Experience

We really don’t know how to describe LINQ Hotel and Experience – but we love it! Part amusement park, it houses the world’s tallest observation wheel and a crazy zipline for a screamingly good time above the Strip. It’s part bodacious buffet, with chefs including Gordon Ramsay and Guy Fieri cooking up some splendid grub. It’s part swanky shops and exciting entertainment. Add that all together and you get something 100 percent unforgettable that’ll take your Instagram to a new level.

8. El Cortez Hotel and Casino

If you want the true Vegas experience, skip the Strip and stay at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino. This old-school, family-run joint is one of the last of its kind. You can stay in casino pioneer Jackie Gaughan’s vintage suite then toast to the night at the Parlour Bar. If you’re on a hot streak at the casino, Siegel’s 1941 will bring steaks and scotch to you game-side so you can play uninterrupted. Historic haunts like this are few and far between in contemporary Las Vegas.

9. Whitney Peak Hotel

Wait, a Reno hotel without gaming? Yes indeed – Whitney Park will give you a one-of-a-kind stay. Room with panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada mountains? Done. Want to rock out to live music in Reno’s largest concert venue? Done. Want to scale the side of the hotel like Spider-Man? This hotel’s got the Guinness world record for tallest artificial climbing wall, and it’s stuck to its facade. You’ll have so much fun, you’ll forget that the “Biggest Little City in the World” is a haven for casinos.

10. Silver Legacy Resort and Casino

You deserve gold-standard treatment in Reno – and Silver Legacy Resort and Casino is going to give it to you. Practise your swing in the Topgolf simulator while your other half basks in an anti-ageing facial at the spa. Add some sizzle to your diet with steaks at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, followed by the perfectly shaken (or stirred) martini at Drinx. Whatever you do, this hotel makes it its business to ensure you do it in supreme style.

11. Edgewood Tahoe

Resort, Spa Hotel, Golf Hotel

Get away from it all and then go further still at Edgewood Tahoe. Swoon over views of the lake from your suite’s balcony. Rub shoulders with celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Alfonso Ribeiro during a round on the home course of the American Century Championship. Sink so deep into a holistic smoky quartz exfoliation and massage that you forget where you are. Don’t worry: the minute you open your eyes to the Sierra views, you’ll recall this place isn’t just a dream.

12. Mizpah Hotel

You don’t have to follow the Vegas crowd to the Strip: Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah is known as the jewel of the desert for its enduring charm and head-turning historical features, which include suites with western fittings introduced a century ago. Honour icons such as boxer Jack Dempsey and Senator Key Pittman by raising a glass in their namesake restaurant and private room. Note that the property is famously haunted, so if you book the Lady in Red Suite, you might well get a visit.

13. Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino

Beyond the desert, find aquatic bliss with a waterfront cottage at this Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe resort. You can go from sandy beach to fresh slopes within minutes, so choose between fishing, skiing, hiking, and swimming. The spa is almost spiritual, and the casino is a thrill. But you’ll probably be so busy hiking the Tahoe East Shore Trail or taking a serene carriage ride that you’ll barely make it back in time for grilled game meats and fine wine at the Lone Eagle Grille.
