Where to stay
in Las Vegas

With its impressive number of hotel rooms, Las Vegas can be a conundrum when it comes time to decide which neighborhood to stay in. Most travelers flock to The Strip for its bright lights, casinos, luxury hotels, celebrity chef dining and entertainment. But there's so much more to Vegas, including the slightly quieter Downtown Las Vegas, where guests can stay in a hotel closer to the city's original roots. With so many choices, from classic accommodations to the newest hotel phenomenon, you'll easily find a hotel that best matches your personality and energy level.

Where to Stay for Nightlife and Entertainment

There really isn't anywhere better to stay for nightlife and entertainment than the famous Las Vegas Strip. Approximately four miles long, The Strip is home to numerous hotels, restaurants, casinos, apartment high-rises and attractions (most of this stretch of road has been deemed an All-American Road and a scenic route at night). Reserving a room on The Strip means access to the city's biggest, most luxurious hotel rooms, Broadway musical productions just downstairs and a huge range of dining options, from all-you-can-eat buffets to Michael Mina and Emeril Lagasse eateries. Also, there's no need to rent a car since everything is within walking distance. From exploding volcanoes to pirate ships to mesmerizing dancing fountains, hotels on The Strip are perfect if you want to be in the middle of the action.

Places to Stay for Local Culture

After you've tried your luck at the casinos, there's more to discover in Downtown Las Vegas, directly north of The Strip and the original epicenter of the city. Travelers seeking Las Vegas history and culture will want to stay in this eclectic neighborhood, home to an assortment of restaurants, boutiques, cafes and historic buildings. The Main Street Hotel and Casino displays a chunk of the Berlin Wall, and you can walk along pedestrian-friendly Fremont East reading historic facts emblazoned on bronze medallions on the sidewalk. Also known as "Old Vegas," the Fremont Street Casino District is home to the city's original casinos, the nightly Viva Vision Light Show and free live music at the brightly-lit Fremont Street Experience. Hotels in the Fremont East Entertainment District put guests on a pedestrian-friendly stretch of Fremont, with direct access to numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. Art-loving travelers will be tempted by the Arts District (or 18b) and its collection of art galleries, studios and shops (the neighborhood is known for its First Friday art walks). Hotels in Downtown Las Vegas are close to the city's most interesting museums, including the Neon Museum (and Neon Boneyard) and the Mob Museum (great for kids). For a college-town ambience, reserve a hotel in the University District, a welcoming and sophisticated neighborhood full of walking paths, gardens, a fine art gallery, chic coffeehouses and a natural history museum.
