Talk about growth! In the mid-1970s, Las Vegas had approximately 35,000 hotel rooms. By 2022, that number had exploded to more than 150,000. There’s accommodation to suit every taste and every pocketbook. Today, the resorts along the 3-mile stretch of the Las Vegas Strip are considered to be among the best luxury accommodations in the world.
As you head for the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction, June 22-24 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, consider some of these top accommodation options in the city.
If you’re looking for convenience, consistency and comfort, Barrett-Jackson’s host hotels are a good choice, and all offer special rates during the auction. Just across the street from the auction site is the all-suite Las Vegas Marriott, while SpringHill Suites by Marriott is just around the corner. Also nearby is the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, as well as Embassy Suites by Hilton Convention Center Las Vegas.
For those interested in a distinctly unique travel experience, turn to the world-famous Strip. Consistently at the top of many a “Best Of” list for luxury hotels in the city is Wynn Las Vegas & Encore. The opulent resort casino is resplendent with stunning atrium gardens, floral mosaic floors, private lakes and waterfalls, and the Strip’s only golf course. There are also two gorgeous spas, an amazing assortment of acclaimed dining options, shopping at Wynn’s esplanades and a hopping nightclub scene.
Other great options if you’re looking for the ultimate in luxury include Skylofts at MGM Grand – 51 duplex penthouses complete with butler service at the top of the sprawling mega-resort – as well as Aria Resort & Casino, offering sanctuary-like guest rooms full of high-tech details (their seven Sky Villas and more than 400 Sky Suites take luxury to an even higher level).
You’ll discover a unique boutique hotel-within-a-hotel experience at both Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace (the brainchild of famed chef Nobu Matsuhisa) and NoMad Las Vegas at the Park MGM, featuring Old World European elegance and guest rooms inspired by Parisian apartments.
If it’s sophistication, seclusion and sanctuary you seek, look no further than the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas, a non-gaming, non-smoking property featuring jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Strip, the city’s most coveted high tea, personal concierges and two floors completely dedicated to wellness.
In the “go big or go home” department, consider two Italian-inspired Las Vegas resorts: the Lago di Como-themed Bellagio with its famous fountains and the acclaimed lakeside Le Cirque restaurant, and The Venetian, resplendent with frescoes, replicas of Venice’s famous landmarks and attractions (including gondolas, of course), and a dizzying array of dining options.
There are plenty of accommodation choices off the Strip, too – most notably Circa in Downtown Las Vegas, an adults-only property catering to sports lovers who come for its Stadium Swim pool complex featuring a pool, lounge seats, sports bar and bungalows all facing a massive, 40-foot-high HD TV that always has a major game playing.
