Hotels Off the Vegas Strip
These days, it seems all of the action in Las Vegas is on the Strip, from the new hotels and casinos to the incredible shopping centers.It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that there are many great hotels and casinos located off the Strip, some just a block or two away, others further afield.
Some of the trendiest hotels in recent years have been located off the Strip, from the celebrity favorite Palms Casino and Resort to the Rio, home of Penn & Teller to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, another favorite with actors and musicians.
There is definitely a lot to be said for staying on the Strip. When you stay at a place like Bellagio, the Venetian, or CityCenter, you have access not only to a world-class resort, but you can walk to any number of other stellar hotels. You are right in the mix, and you will never lack for excitement, attractions, and nightlife.
But there are some big advantages to staying off the Strip as well. For one thing, at the top Off-Strip places, you can get all the latest amenities available at the new resorts along Las Vegas Boulevard, from amazing pools areas to trendy clubs to great casinos.
However, when you stay at one of these Off-Strip resorts, you also get to avoid the hassle, traffic, and noise of the Strip. In a sense, you can get the best of Vegas without having to deal with all the crowds.
The best Off-Strip hotels and resorts include:
- Aliante Station
- Green Valley Ranch
- Hard Rock Hotel
- Las Vegas Hilton
- M Resort
- Orleans Hotel
- Palms Resort
- Ravella at Lake L.V.
- Red Rock Casino
- Rio All Suites Hotel
- Wyndham Grand
There are others, including a number of other great Station casinos that cater to locals but which have great little hotels and top notch facilities. Whether you stay on the Strip or off it is ultimately more up to your own personal tastes and style.
What’s great these days in Vegas is that you can stay in an absolutely incredible resort, whether you want to be in the thick of the action, just off the main drag, or even on the edge of town, at a resort set against the backdrop of a beautiful desert landscape. No matter which way you go, you are bound to have a great time.
