One reason we love Red Rock Canyon is that it caters to diverse travelers. You can take to the trails and rock climb to your heart’s desire – but those who prefer air conditioning and flip-flops can tackle the scenic drive and still be immersed in the majesty of the mountains. Whichever you choose, start and end your trip with a little luxe lodging. Check out these awesome hotels – bookable with Culture Trip – near Red Rock Canyon, Nevada.

Trust us, it’s hard for your worries to find you at 6,700ft (2,042m) in the Kyle Canyon. The Retreat on Charleston Peak is a mountainside escape from the desert heat. Surrounded by mountain peaks, overlooks and viewpoints, the hardest decision you’ll have to make is where to begin your hike. Ask for local advice at the Canyon Restaurant, where you’ll find a bartender or two who will recommend a great spot nearby to stop, sit and marvel at this awe-inspiring landscape.

2. Element Las Vegas Summerlin

We’re not saying that you have to golf when you stay at Element; we’re just stating the obvious that, with a half-dozen courses in the area, it’s going to be hard not to. Your guest room has enough space to cook meals in your full kitchen, knock out some urgent emails at the work desk and practice your swing without slicing any furniture. The fitness center even has all of your go-to machines that will loosen you up for at least one quick round of 18.

3. Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa

If you are staying near Red Rock Canyon, you might as well do it as big, bold and beautiful as the canyon itself. Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa rivals the Strip with stunning mountain views, amazing steaks and a full-service spa that feels like your own private sanctuary. The casino floor offers thousands of opportunities to cash in, but it’s the Sandbar Pool that you’ll want to dive into after a long day at Red Rock Canyon.

4. La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Las Vegas red Rock

La Quinta Inn & Suites is just far enough from the Strip to provide respite from the glitz and glamour, yet close enough for a quick sight-seeing tour. Who needs a casino floor when a free breakfast, sparkling pool and bright desert sky will keep you (and your wallet) calm, cool and collected? Red Rock Canyon is only 10mi (16km) away, so no need to rush out of the pool until you’re good and pruny.

5. NoMad Las Vegas

Casino Hotel

New York swagger and swanky Las Vegas style are mixed up like a gin martini at NoMad Las Vegas. The namesake suite features a freestanding mahogany and leather bar, no doubt the centerpiece of your envy-inducing photographs. Even the casino floor is a refined affair with a Tiffany glass ceiling watching over high-limit blackjack. We would mention the stunning Marrakech-inspired pool deck, but we have a feeling you’re already drooling over NoMad’s latest Instagram stories.

6. Artisan Hotel Boutique

Artisan will seduce you with its sexy off-Strip hotel. We’ve heard whispers that the Rumor Suite has an oversized multi-headed shower that may or may not cater to your Sin City tryst. We have a feeling that the staff would prefer that we were discreet in discussing the top-optional European pool, so we’ll instead tempt you over to the Barcelona tapas restaurant and assure you that the Ultralounge is a hip local haunt, where you’re destined to make a few new friends.

7. Vdara Hotel and Spa, Las Vegas

Vdara Hotel & Spa welcomes you and your furry friend to Fabulous Las Vegas. Pet-friendly suites will make you and your pooch feel at home. The hotel has even dedicated a park for morning walks and potty breaks. Your pup will love sniffing his way through the Strip. The only downside? Your dog might be a little bummed to find out that there isn’t a table full of dogs playing poker at this non-gaming hotel.

8. The Venetian

When in Vegas, do as the Venetians do. How, you ask? First, check into a spacious king suite with a sunken living room. Order the namesake drink at the Bellini Bar as you consider whether a gondola ride would be better in the sunlight or moonlight. Play a little baccarat on the casino floor, hopefully pocketing enough extra cash to buy a few keepsakes from the Grand Canal Shoppes.

9. Bellagio Hotel & Casino

We promise not a soul will judge you for standing slack-jawed at the dancing fountains at the Bellagio all night. It would be a shame if your room went to waste, though, so book a fountain-view suite, and order room service for a new take on dinner and dancing. It’s easy to forget that the Bellagio also has waters that you can dance in. The azure waters of the five courtyard pools are yours to enjoy.

10. Nobu Hotel Las Vegas

Let’s not beat around the bush: if you’re staying at Nobu, food is the star of the show. Yes, this separate Caesars Palace tower is elegantly designed with Japanese-inspired decor and a luxe atmosphere that seems to know you’ve got priority access to the restaurant. But the food itself – how do we begin to describe one of the best chefs the world has seen? Every bite of Nobu’s teppanyaki tasting menu is better than the last.
