Years ago when I was doing Vegas on a tighter budget I always looked for the best deal on the strip. A couple of the great budget style hotels are Luxor, Excalibur, Stratosphere & Tropicana. They all have great things to offer. Luxor and Excalibur are located right on the west side of the strip. Next door to great 4 and 5 star resorts. Top nightclubs like Hakkasan, Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay and LAX. Hitting nightclubs right near your hotel means more time to party, more time to sleep and less wandering around to find where your room is at the end of the night. Yes, a ton of value in these hotel rooms and sometimes you need to understand how much time is going to be spent in there. Are you just catching some sleep, hitting the showers, then rolling the strip? Planning on having a little after party at your place? Maybe this is not the perfect place for an after party, but loading up some guys just to have place to keep your bags...perfect. The Luxor offers some really nice and extremely valuable suites too. You can sometimes get a spa suite for less that your night at a Nightclub. The Stratosphere is a cool spot to stay too. They have 1 of the most amazing views on the Las Vegas Strip. The 5th tallest tower in the country, offers thrill rides like no other. Skyjump, X-Scream and Big Shot are some of the highest, most breathtaking things you can do. The Vegaster app had a BOGO offer on the thrill rides, so this made staying here even more valuable. Also offer an extraordinary lounge called AirBar. 108 stories about the Strip floor, makes this place the highest bar in Las Vegas! Plan ahead, check everywhere before you book. Most of the time calling the hotel directly will get you a price match guarantee, if you find something less online!
I would say the next tier of Hotels, I have personally stayed at would be Caesars Palace, Mirage, MGM Grand & Planet Hollywood. Each is very distinct in the offers, and valuable in their own right. MGM being on 1 of the busiest corners in Vegas always puts the party steps from your room. I personally love the vibe and feel at Planet Hollywood. The music playing is current, maybe a bit louder than most hotels and well...they have the Party Pit. Who doesn't like beautiful people dancing and gambling to today's hits? That's right up my alley! Rooms are very nice, and once again, being in the middle of the strip makes everything just steps away. Caesars Palace parties rival that found in The Hangover. Yes, you do have a phone in your room. One of the top Venues in Vegas is the Colosseum at Caesars. Shania Twain, Elton John, Cher are just a few that grace the stage nightly. Great world renown sports book, amazing award winning restaurants like Guy Savoy, NOBU & Gordon Ramsey Pub & Grill. Gambling is fun, Nightclubs are awesome, but who can pass up a perfect meal to start the night? Not this guy! One of my favorite things about Mirage is the Volcano. I found a great tip on Vegaster and used to upgrade my room. Having a Volcano view room gives you a show while the wife blow dries her hair! I'm also a big fan of the Country Bar next door at Treasure Island (T.I.) Gilley's. A short little walk from Mirage get you into one of the premier Country locations in Vegas. Moonshine, Mechanical Bull, and tight fitting wrangler jeans...CHECK! They seem to always have great beer offers and food specials. Check the Vegaster app when you in the area and be sure to redeem a special.
I have had the very fortunate opportunity to stay at the best of the best! Cosmopolitan Wrap Around Suites, Mandarin Oriental Dynasty Suite and the MGM Skylofts. These are the best of the best. Cosmo Wrap Around suites with the Bellagio Fountain View, beautiful and breathtaking. These rooms offer top of the line amenities, and first class concierge services. I'm a big fan of making my own plans through the Vegaster app, but I have used the hotel concierge for dinner reservations at STK. A hidden gem at Cosmo is the no-name pizza. We ordered pizza for an after party at our wraparound suite and seriously, it was no name. The box was even blank. Some of the best pizza found on in all of Las Vegas. Mandarin Oriental right across the street from Aria and Cosmo is the ultimate business hotel. One of the very few non-gaming hotels in Vegas, they offer some of the best spa amenities around. Being a non-gaming hotel you have a much more refined, very prestigious crowd. We happened to have the Dynasty Suite and HOLY COW! This place had a table the size to hold a Thanksgiving dinner. Perfect for hosting guest & entertaining your crowd. The Spa is really as good as they say. This place will have your muscles feeling like a million bucks, without spending it! Now to my all time favorite places I have ever stayed in the world, MGM Skylofts! First off, the budget has to be out of mind. Every room is 2 stories, but I will get to that in a minute. When you book, you get picked up at the airport by a Rolls Royce Ghost. Yeah, this is just 1 of the many comps you get. Private entry into the MGM Grand. No line, ZERO. Even with events or holiday weekends. After you get into your private elevator, you ride to the top of the MGM Grand. Welcome to the Skylofts. After you get your complimentary drink, which there are a lot of them with the Skylofts. You check in, right from within your room. Every room is 2 stories. The 1 bedroom, 2 or 3! I have stayed in the 1 and 2 bedroom and nothing could be greater. Both the 1 and 2 bedrooms are found upstairs, with a full bathroom too. No need to run upstairs every time you have to go, just use your 2nd bathroom downstairs. These rooms are tricked out with anything and everything you could think of. Of course a view of the strip, from your personal business center. Computer docks, printers, paper and more to keep business on track. Looking to party more? No problem, rooms with pool tables and Foosball tables too. All rooms fully equipped with automated windows, sound systems, lighting and climate control. Don't forget to water up before you hit the nightclubs or day pools, right from your fully stocked and re-stocked fridge. Complementary water, soda and juice. Fully Stocked twice a day. Just think about how much water you can drink in Vegas, especially if it's free? I use Vegaster for all my nightclub and dayclub reservations, but I have used the concierge and they can make anything happen. Once again this is maybe the best place to bring your new friends you just met at Marquee or Tao, back for a nightcap.
Vegas is the place to live the life you never thought could happen. Yeah, it might only be a night of two, but a word of advice. Plan your stay, book early. When you hit the ground download the Vegaster app and find you day and nightly activities. Personal drivers to your Hotels like Aria or Bellagio. Free World Class Buffet passes at Resorts like Rio or Circus Circus. Maybe just want to give the wife the perfect anniversary spa treatment. Try the Wynn or the Venetian Spas. Vegas has everything so forget that 9-5 job and get out and live. Like Vegas says " What Happens Here is Because You're Here!"
