Issue #004, 25 April 2011

In this issue we’re focusing on hotels in Las Vegas Nevada. In recent weeks we’ve received lots of questions from visitors wanting to know: Which are the best hotels on the Strip? What’s so different about the hotels in Vegas? What are the hotel rooms in Sin City like? etc. So we’ve put together the following information which you’ll hopefully find useful.

#1 The hotels in Las Vegas Nevada are something else...

If you’ve never been to Las Vegas but are planning a trip one of the first things you need to know is that the hotels in Sin City are like nothing you’ve seen before.

They’re attractions in their own right. Where else in the world can you walk just four miles and stumble over famous landmarks (OK, replica landmarks) from around the world such as the Great Sphinx of Giza at the Luxor hotel, the Statue of Liberty at New York New Hotel and the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel?

Because the hotels tend to be huge entertainment centres you could spend your whole break in your hotel and not be stuck for places to eat and things to do. Read more about the hotels

#2 So what can you expect from hotels’ rooms in Las Vegas?

The size and quality of the hotel rooms in Las Vegas were one of the things we found most appealing on our first trip to the desert city.

On our first visit we stayed at the Luxor. Today if you booked a room in one of the Luxor towers you’d have 449 square feet of space which is fairly standard in Vegas. On subsequent visits we’ve never been disappointed by any of the rooms we’ve booked, especially not the Junior Suite at Caesars Palace. Read more about what to expect from hotel rooms in Las Vegas.

#3 How to choose a 5 star hotel in Las Vegas

The five star grading system of hotels that applies in Britain and other countries doesn’t apply in the USA which might cause you some confusion if you’re trying to plan a break at one of the best hotels in Sin City.

In America they use the diamond-rating system which we’ve broken down to help you when booking a hotel.

#4 Las Vegas FAQ about hotels

We've put together a Las Vegas FAQ section about hotels which answers a number of the questions we get sent.If you have a question that’s not addressed please contact us directly through the FAQ page and we’ll do our best to help.

Best wishes
