It’s not so much about what you have planned for Vegas, but what Vegas has planned for you. Find out what this shortlist of favorite stays has in store.
The Luxurious Resort on The Strip
From the moment you walk into the Bellagio, the sophisticated appeal is apparent. It’s the epitome of elegance, class, and refinement. A walk through the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is like entering an enchanted secret garden, which changes themes seasonally, and is a must-see on The Strip. Outside, the iconic Fountains of Bellagio draw millions to the sidewalks for its scheduled, musical light show. But that’s just the beginning.
At the Bellagio, live in luxury, if only temporarily, in one of the well-appointed suites. Spacious lounge areas and fountain view availability will have you flying high during your trip to Sin City. Enjoy a day of pampering and a few glasses of champagne with services at the spa or secure a day pass, which gives complete access to the eucalyptus steam room, a red wood sauna, three hot Jacuzzis, and a cold plunge to invigorate and entice the senses.
When it comes to a stay at Bellagio, indulgence is guaranteed to be on the itinerary in more than one shape or form. Take the opportunity to treat yourself.
The Original Resort on The Strip
The Mirage has seen its share in notoriety, mostly due to the fact it was the first major hotel and casino on The Strip, opening its doors in 1989, and reaching a no-big-deal cost of $630 million. It has appeared in a number of Hollywood films and hosts some of the top-selling acts in Las Vegas, while still holding true to its earlier roots and allure.
For years, the magic of Siegfried & Roy dazzled crowds with acts featuring their famed white tigers. The show has since ceased, but their spirit lives on at Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Guests can get up close and personal in the world of wild animals, including bottlenose dolphins, lions, leopards, and of course, white tigers. Be a trainer for a day, do yoga with the dolphins, or sign up for a behind-the-scenes look at one of the hotel’s claims to fame.
The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil show is one of the most sought after acts in Vegas and R&B super group Boyz II Men continues their run at the Terry Fator Theatre. Finally, a Strip trip wouldn’t be complete without witnessing the outdoor volcano eruption, still in action, and scheduled nightly.
The Vacation within a Vegas Vacation Resort
With architecture and decor that mimics the streets of NYC, this Big Apple casino pays homage to the fast pace of the East Coast with a thrill ride as its central attraction. The Roller Coaster at New York-New York has a 144-foot drop and races along at speeds up to 67 mph. Get spun upside down and then grab a slice at New York Pizzeria, in that order.
For those in the party mood, sign up for the Sin City Club Crawl, which offers free cover charge and expedited line passes to six bars within the hotel, including the famous Coyote Ugly, where you might be asked to break down your best dance moves on top of the bar. The next night head to Zumanity, a risque burlesque and cabaret show part of the Cirque du Soleil lineup of performances that has a more erotic, sensual twist on the traditional acrobatics.
At the end of the day, relax in the comfort of your Park Avenue Room, Player’s Suite, or go big with a Penthouse stay with the amenities deserving of every VIP.
The All Day (and Night) Party Resort on The Strip
It’s easy to spot the emerald shimmer of MGM Grand even from a plane high above the city. Relaxation resort-style is the name of the game when you stay here. Experience cabana life at its finest and book a spot to stretch out near the 6.5 acres of space that houses 4 swimming pools, 3 whirlpools, waterfalls, and a lazy river.
Take it up a few notches at the Wet Republic Ultra Pool where there are saltwater pools, daybeds, and a DJ party spanning across 54,500 square-feet complete with poolside food and beverage service. Later, go full throttle at Hakkasan, the premiere nightlife venue at MGM Grand, which hosts regulars DJ Calvin Harris, DJ Tiesto, and DJ Steve Aoki among others.
After the last record has been spun, recharge in one of the Stay Well rooms, which includes amenities focused on maximizing your health and wellness, such as an air purification system, aromatherapy, vitamin C shower infuser, and other technologies and advancements. This is one of several room options available during a stay at MGM Grand.
