Las Vegas may be famous for its casinos, top theater shows, nightclubs and designer shopping, but it’s also home to some of the USA’s most luxurious hotels, both on and off the Strip.

You don’t need to be a celebrity to feel like a Vegas VIP. Make the most of Sin City’s 24-hour casinos, pool parties, fine-dining restaurants and non-stop entertainment, then splash out on a lavish hotel for the ultimate indulgence. Think spectacular spas, fine art, Michelin-star dining, chic cocktail bars and once-in-a-lifetime suites you will never want to leave.

Rewriting the rule book on Las Vegas luxury, Palms is a sleekly modern homage to excess. From the packed-out casino to the sumptuous spa, the hotel guarantees a good time, with a cinema, nightclubs and an array of top restaurants and concert venues. Rooms are swathed in tactile leather and velvet, with marble minibars and giant TVs, but it’s the ostentatious suites that grab the headlines, featuring personal basketball courts, rose-gold beauty bars, photo booths and private bowling lanes.

This curved golden high-rise at the north end of the Strip is lavish even by excessive Vegas standards. Costing $2.7 billion to build, it is one of the world’s most expensive buildings and shimmers with elegance; it’s a sophisticated but suitably over-the-top mix of marble floors, gold adornments and playful Alice in Wonderland-style floral displays. Alongside an extravagant theater show and unusually airy casino, there’s also an 18-hole championship golf course, SoulCycle studio and a gobsmacking selection of designer stores.

A decadent homage to Italian dolce vita, the Venetian is an extravagant feast for the eyes, with acres of marble, vaulted ceilings, a replica of the Sistine Chapel and even its very own Grand Canal, complete with opera-singing gondoliers. Suites don’t disappoint either: even the cheapest is nearly double the size of a standard room on the Strip, with a sunken living room, Roman tub, iHome alarm clock and regal purple accents.

The attention to detail is the first thing you notice at this big-name, casino-free hotel at the heart of the Strip. By the time you’ve reached check-in on the 23rd floor, staff offering bottled water are already waiting to greet you by name; every room comes with a walk-in wardrobe and glass-enclosed spa bathroom stocked with upscale Salvatore Ferragamo products. Don’t want to be disturbed? The room’s valet closet lets room service be delivered without even opening your door.

Old-school glamor oozes from El Cortez, a Downtown institution since the 1940s. There’s a classic Cadillac in the lobby, a speakeasy barbershop and a swish parlor bar, while the hotel’s casino is on the National Register of Historic Places. Up the luxe factor by hopping across Ogden Avenue to the Cabana Suites, which feature custom-made retro furniture, iHome stereos and pops of in-your-face neon. Ellie Goulding even filmed the video for ‘On My Mind’ in the Jackie Gaughan Suite here.

    Vdara may be just steps from the Strip but its hushed refinement belongs to another world. With no casino or nightclub in the curved glass high-rise, the all-suite hotel ups the luxury quota instead, with soaking tubs, panoramic city views, a media hub, kitchenettes and in-room tablets. It’s worth getting out of bed to visit the award-winning two-story spa, where signature treatments include the heavenly Desert Rose salt scrub and massage.
