The 10 best vacation packages in Las Vegas
Okay, you want to visit Las Vegas, but you're not sure how to get the most bang for your buck. Well, assuming your speaking figuratively (since prostitution isn't actually legal here), then you should take advantage of our list of Sin City's best vacation deals, which, at the very least, will help take the edge off when you screw things up and lose the rest of your money at the tables.
The Bellagio's Romance Retreat is probably the best couples getaway you can find in Las Vegas. Your night at the Lakeview Cypress Suite includes a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, chocolate covered strawberries, and a 50 minute couples massage. Everything is made easy from the start with limo service from the airport and check-in at the Chairman’s Lounge. Your room also includes the perfect view of those fountains that everyone keep talking about.
Chances are pretty good that you’ll want to check out one of the best nightclubs in Vegas during your visit, so you might as well book the Experience Hakkasan package with the MGM Grand. Choose your room and get complimentary admission -- and expedited entry -- for two at the nightspot, a $50 resort credit, plus 25% off all services at REVIV, which offers IV drips that are sure to cure the hangover you’ll have after a long night at the club.
The Quad Resort has been renovated for the second time in two years and has changed its name to The LINQ Hotel and Casino to match the outdoor entertainment district next door, which is convenient because their High Roller Package comes with a fully loaded Deluxe King room and two complimentary tickets to the High Roller observation wheel, which is probably one of the reasons you’re visiting Las Vegas in the first place.
The Golden Gate is celebrating its history with a package that brings back the glory years of vintage Vegas. Your stay in one of the renovated rooms comes with cocktails at Bar Prohibition, where the drinks are served in coffee mugs, just like they were back in the day to throw off the cops. You'll also get tickets to the Mob Museum, which used to be the courthouse where tons of gangsters got busted. While checking in, take a look at the vintage artifacts in the lobby, like the first telephone in Las Vegas, which was presumably tapped, like immediately.
This is possibly the best reason to hit Santa Fe Station in the North Valley. For just $99 you get a night in a deluxe room, free cover and two drinks at the Revolver Saloon & Dance Hall, as well as a $25 dining credit. Cowboy hats are not included… but you do get a late check out.
The Stratosphere is giving you more than just one of the best views in Las Vegas. You also get an all-day pass for the thrill rides that hang over the side. That means you can scare yourself to death… over and over again… more than 100 stories above the Strip.
Vitamin C-infused showers, warm white lighting, and a water purification system are among the 20 health-conscious amenities in the Stay Well rooms at the MGM Grand. Book the appropriately titled package and you’ll also get $20 off IV infusions at REVIV, $5 off vitamin B12 shots, 25% off spa services, and a $25 dining credit that will go even further if you skip the carbs at restaurants.
This package at... youguessedit!... Vdara is perfect for couples in the mood to... err, just couples in the mood. Your stay includes a "welcome gift" from the Kiki de Montparnasse luxury adult boutique, a complimentary in-suite movie that probably won’t be PG-13, and what’s likely to be a sorely needed late check out time.
Cottonwood Cove Resort & Marina is giving you a chance to enjoy the sunny weather before winter kicks in at the same time of year when the water level at Lake Mohave is highest. Book a houseboat vacation through Forever Resorts and receive a $200 fuel credit, as well as a few things you need for the perfect party on the water (two bags of ice, two cases of water, and two cases of Coke products). You also get permission to board early, which is worth $200 by itself.
If you need to go way over-the-top to impress your date, there’s only one option: the Ultimate Romance package from the Mandarin Oriental. Not only do you get your room decorated with romantic gifts, a couples treatment at the spa, and dinner for two at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, but you also get a personal aerial tour of the Strip in a vintage 1930s bi-plane. It’s really among the most romantic things you can do in Vegas.
