What Are the Best Las Vegas Hotels?

Learn about the best hotels in Las Vegas from Sin City expert Mike Myers in this Howcast video.


My name is Mike Myers. I am the owner of Legion Marketing; my expertise is in nightlife. I believe that I know the best and brightest of everything that's in Las Vegas. I can help you skip the lines, skip the bad spots, basically cut the fat. Head and shoulders above the rest is the Wynn Encore Resort and Casino. The regular rooms are spacious and the entire tower of Encore is all suites. With an 18-hole golf course, two world-renowned nightclubs in Tryst and Excess, and two smaller clubs and lounges, and perhaps the most lavish pool anyone's ever seen in Encore Beach Club. They actually built a mountain out front that makes it look like the hotel sits on a lake in Tuscany. The only foie comes in the restaurants which seem a little flat and stuffy, but still excellent quality. The Bellagio is second when it comes to service and beauty. The dancing fountains remain the single greatest attribute and a defining visual to the excellence that is The Bellagio. The villas are big and the rooms are lush. The Bank Nightclub and Caramel Lounge have been staples in the Las Vegas scene for years, and the restaurants are a 'Who's Who' in the culinary world. It's lacking a pool party or a pool scene, really of any kind. I would guess that is going to be changing in the coming years. The Cosmopolitan is the newest casino to be opened in Las Vegas. Bringing most of its influences from New York City, the crowd definitely shows it. It's young and hip, and losing money, despite being packed at all times. The restaurants like STK and Scarpetta are very popular, and so is its night club Marquis and a pool by the same name. The hotel was originally built as a condo hotel, so every room has balconies and kitchens in them, but the service is definitely lacking, and if you're not in the night life or the scene, there's little if any to do on property.
