    Where to Stay in Las Vegas

    🗺️ Location

    Downtown Las Vegas is commonly known as the Strip. This 6.8 km stretch along the bustling thoroughfare houses 13 out of the world’s 25 largest hotels. If you’re not on a tight budget, I suggest staying here.

    For instance, Stratosphere and Circus Circus are more affordable, but they’re far from the heart of the action.

    💵 Las Vegas Hotel Prices

    Accommodation prices escalate during the weekends as crowds descend upon the city, driving prices up. Rooms with views of the Strip and those on higher floors tend to cost more. Request the highest available floor at check-in. It might come with an additional charge, but you could get lucky.

    Numerous hotels exclude the 4th and 40th-49th floors from their numbering, catering to their Asian clientele’s superstitions as these numbers sound like “death” in Chinese. Some hotels even offer a room on the 53rd floor, despite it actually being the 42nd floor.

    💲 Resort Fees

    The “resort fee” is a method of extracting extra money from tourists. The fee of $35–$45 per room per night covers charges for the internet, fitness center, and other often unnecessary services. Almost every hotel in Las Vegas imposes a resort fee. Ensure to check whether it is included in the listed price during booking.

    ⭐ Hotel Rating

    When selecting a hotel, don’t rely solely on stars. The rating and reviews from previous guests are the decisive factors. On Booking.com, I recommend a minimum rating of 7.3 and at least 100 reviews. A lesser number of reviews could distort the score (which typically decreases over time).

  2. The Best Value Hotels on the Strip

    I have curated for you a list of 9 hotels on the Strip that provide excellent value for money. Each comes in a slightly different style. I recommend browsing through the photographs of all the hotels and making a selection based on your personal preferences.

    1️⃣ Treasure Island

    The primary advantage is the blend of an excellent location in the central part of the Strip and a relatively affordable price. I have stayed at Treasure Island, enjoyed the view of the Strip, the cleanliness and spaciousness of the rooms, and the convenience store directly across the street. The hotel is decorated in a pirate-Caribbean style, and since my visit to TI, I’ve developed an affinity for the coconut scent that wafts in the lobby. The resort use fee was a minor annoyance, but it’s almost inescapable in Las Vegas.

    2️⃣ Bellagio Las Vegas

    The hotel with the singing fountains is among the more luxurious and costly offerings the Strip presents. It holds a solid 8.4/10 rating on Booking, with guests extolling the location, large rooms, and views. If I’m not overly concerned about budget, I would stay at the Bellagio.

A short walk from the Signature will lead you to, for instance, the Bellagio Fountains.
