Who said Las Vegas hogs all the fun? Henderson may not be on the Strip, but it’s still one of the best places in Nevada to spend a holiday. Major league sports are just as close as museums and spas. Hiking trails and thrill rides are as accessible as casinos and shopping sprees. Whether you’re a gambler, a gamer, or someone who just appreciates a good time no matter how it comes, you’ll be happy you chose these hotels in Henderson.
We’d argue that “M” stands for “more than you could ever imagine” at this Henderson hotel. Spy the Las Vegas Strip and the mountains right from your room’s floor-to-ceiling windows. Hit the jackpot at the DayDream pool area, where DJs spin tracks as hot as the desert sun. The Sportsbook is the place to cheer on the Golden Knights and the Raiders, but we suggest hitting up the luxe VIP Lounge to feel like a true champion.
One night at the Green Valley Ranch is all you’ll need to forget you’re even close to the heart of Sin City. This Henderson hotel has it all: from baller presidential suites and specialty spa services to arcade games for kids and shuttle service to and from the airport. Add in dozens of bars, restaurants, and an award-winning bakeshop, and you’ll never leave the property. Honestly, we’ll be surprised if you leave the shade of the backyard pool’s cabanas.
Sushi and spa treatments or steaks and workout sessions in the fitness studio? Have them all and then some when you stay at The Westin. Choose whichever order you please, though we think that an itinerary starting with a round of golf, a massage in the spa, and a Wagyu steak at Marssa Steak & Sushi is a solid schedule. Or, buck our suggestions and go rogue with a Starbucks from the Marrakesh Express and a day spent lounging by the lake.
Hampton Inn & Suites is a great hotel in Henderson to stay at if you’re hitting the sites outside of the Las Vegas Strip. With Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam within a half-hour’s drive, you’ll be able to catch some extra sleep in your double queen suite. Rooms with exterior entrances are perfect for quietly heading out before the sun wakes up, though we’d suggest not getting the car running until after you’ve grabbed a free breakfast in the lobby.
Heading out of Henderson in a hurry? Stay at SpringHill Suites. This hotel on the outskirts of Henderson gets you a jump start on your way to the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area. Recharge on the cool and crisp sheets of your plush king bed then refuel with a free breakfast of yogurt, coffee, and pastries. Lace-up your hiking shoes if you’re ready to roll, but if you’re dreading the desert heat, make a quick stop-off in the indoor pool.
An off-Strip shopping spree is on sale when you stay at Hilton Garden Inn. Book a double queen room even if it’s just you; you’ll want the extra space to store all of your shopping bags. The Galleria at Sunset is close, a cheap cab ride after you win a few hands of Blackjack at Sunset Station next door. Be sure to pick up a new swimsuit, exercise clothes and dinner dress; the hotel has a pool, fitness center, and restaurant on-site.
Let Hilton be the first to make you think of lakeside luxury when you think of Las Vegas. This Henderson hotel is a Mediterranean-style oasis set between the desert and the Mojave mountains. A resort-style pool with private cabanas and a Med-style spa are yours to find cooling comfort in. Never feel guilty trying to beat the heat by staying in your room; the two championship golf courses on-site will get you back under the sun soon enough.
A petite suite is all you’ll need at Sunset Station Hotel & Casino, especially if you’re leaning into the casino side of these accommodations. A king bed and pull-out sofa pair with a seating area and bathroom with two vanities to give everyone space to stretch out. Feeling playful? Bingo, bowling, pool, poker, concerts, and children’s games are all a few floors below your suite.
