The grandaddy of all Las Vegas casinos, Caesar's Palace is an icon in its own right. The massive Parthenon-like resort boasts regular rooms and deluxe fantasy suites, a cavernous and varied casino, premium shopping, live entertainment (ranging from Celine Dion to Elton John), and a conveniently located chapel should anyone have too much fun.
This luxury casino sports gorgeous accommodations, high-end restos (N9ne Steakhouse, Alize, Nove Italiano), and a spa/salon.
A staple in the Vegas hotel scene, The Mirage hosts a slew of next-level accommodations and suites, like the Villas, where you can have your own private lagoon-like pool surrounded by a forest of palm trees.
With trademark Hollywood memorabilia in every room and bites like upscale Japanese and casual dining brought to you by Gordon Ramsey, Planet Hollywood delivers on a celebrity lifestyle. Just ask the lingerie-clad black jack dealers and go-go dancers you'll find on the casino floor.
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.
With 61 stories of gleaming floor-to-ceiling windows, this chic, upscale resort is an entertainment mecca right in the heart of the Strip. Aria boasts an array of boutique fine-dining options -- ranging from Sage, helmed by James Beard Award-winning chef Shawn McClain to Michael Mina's cutting-edge French eatery Bardot Brasserie -- lounges, clubs, spas, and high-end stores.
