Plasma TVs, marble spa tubs, and a 12,000-seat event center with concerts like Iron Maiden and more make this a can't-miss Vegas hot spot. Hit the green on four different golf courses or if you're feeling lucky, try the Toptional™ Moorea Beach Club, which is exactly what it sounds like.
This 47-story hotel was designed by the architectural firm responsible for Beijing's Museum of China (located just off Tian'an Men Square, so you know it's historically accurate); meanwhile, the 392 floor-to-ceiling-windowed rooms are steez'd by Israeli-American hotel pimp Adam D. Tihany, including 3200sqft presidential suites optimistically equipped with cutting-edge fitness equipment (located in your room, so you know you'll use it).
This luxury casino sports gorgeous accommodations, high-end restos (N9ne Steakhouse, Alize, Nove Italiano), and a spa/salon.
The iconic Vegas hotel has a 1149ft-tall Tower, casino, live events, and, of course, a 64ft-tall roller coaster on the roof -- just in case all the other standard Vegas entertainment isn't enough for you to get your thrills.
Just a block off the main drag, Rio is one of the better resorts for those traveling in larger groups. The Brazilian-themed hotel's signature "chic suites" sleep six people and features various amenities, live entertainment (Penn and Teller are on retainer, along with the Chippendales), a pool area with an actual white sand beach, and a 490ft high zip-line that connects the hotel's two towers.
