Las Vegas – Hotels & Resorts
More Hotels & Resorts
Las Vegas hotels are over the top. Most are worlds in themselves with many acres under one roof. “The world’s largest” and “the world’s only” are common descriptive terms here as each developer tries to make his new property bigger, better and more outrageous than any other. In general, luxury reigns. Rooms are large and comfortable, and amenities and facilities are those that can’t be found anywhere else. Many of the soaring skyscraper properties encompass lakes, waterfalls, theme parks, spas, sophisticated bars and restaurants, hip night clubs, chic shopping malls and glittering casinos, most of which operate around the clock around the year. Most hotels are on or near the southern and center parts of “The Strip,” Las Vegas Boulevard. Others are on streets parallel to it or downtown. There is so much to do under one roof that many visitors play and stay in the same place without ever leaving their resort.
