Most of the prestigious hotels and casinos are located in the southern part of the city center, near the McCarran airport. Even the smallest modern hotel has more than 2,000 suits, and MGM Grand hotel has more than 5,000. There are thousands of slot machines, hundreds of gaming tables, several restaurants and concert halls and a lot of shops and bars in every city’s casino. The northern part of the city center, along the Strip, is less impressive. The casinos there are older and less popular now.
Well, in order to successfully compete in the gambling business and attract new visitors, these casinos have lower prices for drinks, food and shows. There are also several large casino hotels, like "Sam's Town" and "Boulder Station", afar from Las Vegas Boulevard. Those isolated casinos often have excellent discounts for customers.
Here are the most famous and popular Las-Vegas casino hotels.
It is undoubtedly one of the most famous and large hotels of the city. It is located in the city center, and smaller hotels or restaurants use Bellagio as a guide description of itself: a restaurant overlooking Bellagio, a hotel in five hundred meters from Bellagio.
The most famous hotel attraction is the singing fountains, performing amazing music and light show several times a day. The show is free and everybody is welcome to enjoy it. By the way, you may have seen Bellagio in the Hollywood movie "Ocean's Eleven".
It is the least honeymoon suitable place because the hotel is widely known as a popular place for hen and stag parties. And musicians like it also, for obvious reasons.
It is one of the largest casino hotels in Las Vegas. The 25 kg gold nugget, installed in the lobby, is a hotel’s mascot.
This hotel is styled for Roman architecture. The show podium is designed in the Colosseum style, there are Roman baths and a Cleopatra barge on the territory, and an adorned copy of the famous Roman Fontana de Trevi is outside the hotel.
This hotel is also built in the Italian style. The facade is decorated with a copy of the Venetian tower and square. But the main attraction is the channel with the gondoliers, singing Italian arias and riding happy tourists in gondolas.
This hotel is one of the most notable in Las Vegas, due to its 170-meter replica of the Eiffel Tower, which has a lift, a restaurant and an observation deck. This tower was built according to original blueprints and was planned as an exact copy, but its height had been cut almost twice because of the airport proximity. There is also Arch of Triumph, Concorde square and cute French streets.
This casino hotel itself is not particularly noticeable and located away from most Las Vegas hotels. Its main attraction is the tallest building in the city — the observation tower, 350 m high. There are an observation platform, a restaurant and some entertainment attractions (we ride some – it’s fun!) on the top of the tower.
It has a tropical thematic design with several swimming pools on the territory – one is heated and one with waves, and sandy beaches nearby were created with almost 3 thousand tons of sand.
The hotel has collected the most recognizable elements of New York: the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, the Central Station building, Manhattan skyscrapers (including Empire State and Chrysler Building). Hotel’s restaurants and casinos are also named after New York’s famous attractions, for example, Central Park and Greenwich village.
This hotel is notable for its volcano, which erupts every hour in the evening.
It has the architectural style of Hollywood, in the nearby Los Angeles city. The hotel was built in a modern style, and placed in the city center, though the suit’s cost in it is relatively low.
“Excalibur" is the name of the legendary King Arthur’s sword. The hotel has a high-rise building for guest suits and a large white castle with towers as a casino.
The hotel has an Ancient Egypt design. The hotel and casino are located in an 110-meter Egyptian pyramid with a huge sphinx at the entrance on guard.
This hotel, as the name suggests, has a circus atmosphere recreated. Although its receptionists and waiters are not dressed up in clown costumes, there is the Adventuredome amusement park on the hotel’s territory with various attractions (including roller coasters), and circus performances are going on there.
It is the very first casino, opened in Las Vegas — in 1946 it was founded by notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel and was named in his mistress honor — girl’s nickname was Flamingo. So the casino was built with the Mafia's money and it glorified Bugsy and ruined him at the same time: the mafia bosses suspected him of money stealing at the hotel construction process and shot him dead.
