Like everything else here, Las Vegas hotels are paragons of excess. You could spend a week exploring the larger hotels, but since they have everything – from designer shopping malls to the world’s largest casinos – onsite, you’ll have little need to go elsewhere. Considering the lavishness of the suites and the exceptional, 24-hour service, you can bag one in these luxury Las Vegas hotels for a ridiculously low price, leaving you with plenty to splurge on everything else. There are some pretty ordinary, no-frills motels too, but when luxury comes at such low prices, it would be crazy to turn it down.
The Strip is where all the Las Vegas magic happens. Beyond the iconic welcome to Las Vegas sign, the world’s biggest hotel-casinos dominate the view as far as the eye can see. Among thousands of square feet of utter extravagance, Bellagio’s Casino asserts itself as king. Pause at the Fountains of Bellagio, which leap to light and sound shows with typical Vegas showiness. Once you enter this palatial complex, you’ll be lost in a world of glittering lights, jingling slot machines, and stellar shows. Competing with Bellagio in the dramatic stakes is the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a flamboyant theater which embodies the hotel’s Roman theme, and it hosts the Strip’s biggest entertainment shows. When you need a change of pace, head out of town. Red Rock Canyon is just outside Las Vegas. This Martian-like formation of hulking, copper-hued rocks is nature’s spectacular answer to the man-made wonders of the Strip.

Downtown Las Vegas still remains one of the most loved neighborhoods in the city. Since it’s not as busy as The Strip, hotel prices are much cheaper, and you get to experience historical Las Vegas. West of The Strip is another great choice, as it is not as famous or central, but it is home to good hotel deals. Hotels in this area are generally quieter and calmer but still offer easy access to The Strip.

The pictures shown are very nice but they do not tell you that you have to climb 4 flights of stairs to reach the apartment, and this is very difficult when you have to carry up your luggage. There is no elevator or lift. Floors do not appear to be clean and show mildew in the grout, so we made sure we wore our slippers or shoes at all times. They have a full shower but it is very small and tight. The area of the apartment is in an excellent area of Florence; very close to restaurants, shops, and famous sites to see, so this made it better for us. If the season is cold, there is a lock on the dial to raise the temperature in the apartment, so that can be uncomfortable. There is a refrigerator and a microwave oven. They leave you 2 towels total and nothing for the kitchen. We were told if we needed more towels, we would have to pay for them. We loved the area, but we would never stay in this apartment again.
For the full throttle, utterly extravagant Las Vegas experience, it has to be the Strip. You’ll stay in a grown-up wonderland, in opulent, palatial surroundings, and there is nowhere else on earth with nightlife and entertainment like this. Plus, when it gets too much, you can simply retreat to your suite within a few minutes. If you’d like to be close to the action, but without the full force of the Strip’s frenetic nature, stay East or West of the Strip. Here, you’ll find some smaller boutique and budget hotels, and you’re still in easy reach of all the main attractions.
I booked a 3.5/4 star hotel at a great rate, 3 months prior to our New York trip. The trip was a birthday present to my son and it was our first time to the Big Apple. I had not received any communications from Travelocity about any changes but, when we finally arrived at the hotel, we found out the reservation was cancelled by their sister company, Expedia. On our first day in New York, I spent 4 hours on the phone with customer service who kept promising that they would fix it. We were tired and it was late so, we spent double the amount to stay the night at the hotel, who was nice enough to cut their rate in half for us. The following day, I called Travelocity for a follow up and was told a mixture of “you’re booked, you’re not booked” answers. They had not resolved the issue at all and we were faced again with paying double the amount to stay at the hotel. I finally demanded to speak to a supervisor who, after being on the phone for 6 hours this time, was able to book us to another hotel for the remainder of our trip. We couldn’t check in until the next day so, we had to pay for another night at the original hotel. Travelocity did credit us for most of the differences in hotel prices but they made it impossible for us to fully enjoy our vacation! The stress alone was taxing and I will never use them or Expedia again!!
