Ranking Hotels on the Las Vegas Strip

Picture of Lissa Townsend Rodgers
Updated: 7 May 2018
With miles of hotels and tens of thousands of rooms, it can be hard to decide where to stay on the Strip.

There are over 65,000 hotel rooms on the Las Vegas Strip, ranging from basic budget accommodations to lavishly appointed villas. The right hotel can also depend on whether you seek a nonstop weekend hitting the clubs or a relaxing few days spent at the spa and pool. Either way, when you book a room in Las Vegas, be mindful of resort and parking fees, which can sometimes significantly raise the price of your room.

The Stratosphere is the tallest building in the city, frequently used as a kind of north star to those trying to navigate its streets. There are shops and a gaming floor on the bottom level, a restaurant and thrill rides on the top, and a bunch of hotel rooms in between. We recommend checking out the top-level bar and the lower-level comedy club. As for accommodations, the Stratosphere isn’t fancy, but it is reasonably priced and, as we pointed out, easy to find.

The Flamingo was one of the first Las Vegas Strip casinos, opened by mobster Bugsy Siegel in 1947. However, nothing of the original building—or the one that appeared in Viva Las Vegas—remains today. Still, the Flamingo’s central location and sprawling pool complex draw guests, and its proximity to The Linq promenade multiplies food and entertainment options.

The SLS was once the storied Sahara casino, where Marlene Dietrich sang in the Conga Room and Louis & Keely frolicked in the lounge. Today, the mid-mod/Middle Eastern motif has been replaced with a sleeker style—even more so in the part of the hotel that has been turned into Las Vegas’ W. The SLS is also home to José Andrés’ Bazaar Meat and a Strip-side Umami Burger.

Caesars Palace remains the definitive kitschy Vegas resort—in the best possible way. The crystal casino is still ’60s chic, and Cleopatra’s Barge lounge is ’70s swank. The Forum Shops still look like a row of tiny temples to ’80s-style conspicuous consumption. Restaurants include Guy Savoy and Nobu, as well as NYC imports Rao’s and Old Homestead. Rooms range from basic kings to luxury villas, all done in sleek style.
