Everyone thinks they are an expert blackjack, poker or slots player. We are here to tell you that Las Vegas was not built on winners! We don’t want to discourage you, but let us give you a little secret on how to win… follow Kenny’s song, “know when to fold’em and know when to walk away”.
Las Vegas has so many hotels it’s tough to say which one is the best as they all offer something different. However you can categorize them from swanky rich to party hotels. No matter what you are looking for in a hotel, Las Vegas offers it.
Bellagio Las Vegas
One of the classiest hotels on the strip with the world’s best water fountain shows. Night life in this hotel is not the best, but their restaurants and lounges are the best in the city overlooking the fountains. Luxurious hotel rooms and high-end gambling is what Bellagio is known for on the strip. If you get a chance, check out the theme gardens that change with the seasons.
Lounges: Bellagio is in the middle of a restructure when it comes to nightlife. Lily Lounge and a ton of restaurants with cool bar scene is your best bet, this way you can grab a bite at the same time. Our new favorite place, which is receiving rave reviews, is the Mayfair Supper Club. Great vibe, cool people and live entertainment – love this place.
MGM Grand Las Vegas
Originally one of the swankiest hotels (we love the word swanky) is now one of the best party hotels, taking over from the Hard Rock Hotel. Star studded concerts, boxing, MMA, nightclubs and of course gambling and high-end restaurants.
Lounges: MGM has the energy to keep you up all night. We love hanging out at MGM Grand and some of the places to hit are Level up, Whiskey Down, Losers Bar, Centrifuge and Lobby Bar. Want some dancing and bottle service, Hakkasan Night club is one of the best in the world.

Wynn made his first million by purchasing the parking lot that was for sale attached to Caesars hotel property. Back in the day Evil Kinevil jumped the fountains out front and broke a few bones. Caesars Palace was the original “Cool place to be seen”. Now home to Omnia nightclub, cool lounges and some great restaurants and shopping. A must see while in Vegas.

ARIA LAS VEGAS
ARIA Las Vegas, is fun hotel. We would say that this hotel has some of the best gambling surrounded by chic upbeat restaurants and attached to a very stylish shopping district. Home of Jewel nightclub, and few hip lounges. Most of all the Aria Hotel rooms are luxurious with amazing views.

COSMOPOLITAN HOTEL LAS VEGAS
The COSMO (as locals call it) is upbeat, fun with a touch of traditional with hints of modernism, if that makes sense. We think this is THE TOP hotel for fun and is the home of the best selection of restaurants in Las Vegas such as EggSlut, Rose Rabbit Lie, Wicked Spoon, Beauty & Essex and many more…Nightclub is Marquee and Marquee Beach club. Catch a drink in the Chandelier Bar a 4 Story Chandelier that swirls 4 stories with class and style, the key place for everyone to meet for drinks.

MANDALAY BAY HOTEL LAS VEGAS
MANDALAY BAY is a great place to also hang out. The hotel is connected to Luxor hotel Las Vegas, so you can go between the two hotels. Luxor is more of a savings hotel and has cheaper gambling, fun foods and is a good time. Mandalay Bay and Delano Las Vegas are a step up and have a lot to offer. Great gambling, Pubs, bars, live music and an assortment of restaurants. Mandalay Bay Las Vegas is by far one of the best Convention Center locations in Las Vegas. The energy and vibe is fun and everyone is just looking to enjoy their stay.
Lounges: Foundation Room keeps that hip vibe going strong. The patio is the best place to hang as you over see the Las Vegas Strip. Also check out Ri RA Irish Pub, -5degrees, 1923 Bourbon Bar, as well as some high-end places such as Veranda Bar overlooking the Four Seasons pool.
