If you’ve followed me on Facebook or Twitter for the last year or two then you know how much I love Vegas and how often I am there. I have never written about Vegas because I am always there with my friends and I like to keep my personal life private. Besides, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…
I don’t love Vegas for all the usual reasons as I have been there over 100 times so I don’t do the whole go insane Vegas weekend thing anymore. I’m over that. I have friends that live there who I visit and Vegas also has the best restaurants in America. It also has some pretty awesome places to stay-you may have heard that Las Vegas hotels are pretty cool. Here is my top three!
1. Artisan Hotel
Located off the strip and without gaming, the Artisan is the hotel of choice for locals and the after hours bar of industry types. It’s also a super cool place to stay. The Artisan is virtually unknown outside of Vegas but for me, it is the coolest place to stay in Sin City. You can have a wild time if you want at the bar and pool or you can chill out in their spacious rooms and take in the awesome décor.
Not to mention the prices are perfect. I have never paid more than $90 to stay in the Artisan. If you don’t have your own wheels then you’ll need to take taxis everywhere from the Artisan but it’s not really any different than from any other Vegas hotel. Give it a shot next you’re in Vegas.
The picture of perfection from both outside and inside. Bellagio sets the standards for Vegas hotels. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms are cavernous. The restaurants and bars throughout the hotel are excellent and it has the best poker room and one of the top sportsbooks in Vegas.
Bellagio also boasts the lobby ceiling lighting structures that have gained accolades throughout the world. While it’s not really my cup of tea, I do still admire the beauty. Bellagio also has one of the best spas in Las Vegas and in my opinion the best new nightclub in Vegas-Hyde Lounge. Trust me, check it out!
The Cosmopolitan is part of the awesome new complex called City Center in Las Vegas. The $12 Billion monstrosity has 4 different hotels in it plus a massive mall and other attractions including some of the best restaurants in Vegas. But for me, the top spot in City Center is the Cosmopolitan.
It has a bit of a cult following with a cool casino and awesome bars like the chandelier bar. Not to mention, one of Vegas’s top nightclubs and dayclubs in Marquee. It may be a pain to get it but once you’re in, it’s a pretty cool place to hang out. Tons of energy and a celebrity hotspot. I won’t namedrop but I’ve seen and met a ton of celebrities at Marquee. If you like nightlife and a cool new-ish type hotel, you can’t go wrong with the Cosmopolitan.
