Fathom Favorites : Las Vegas Hotels

1. Nobu Hotel

Nobu Hotel

It’s not a traditional recipe, transforming the world’s best-known sushi restaurant into The Strip’s spanking-new hotel-within-a-hotel. But the ingredients are right: a refined and elegant Japanese aesthetic (calligraphy artwork, teak bathroom fittings, hot tea upon welcome) in an intimate space (181 rooms and 18 suites with garden and Strip views). Best of all, guests get priority seating at Nobu restaurant.

Caesars Palace, 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Las Vegas , 89109

2. Palms Casino Resort

Palms Casino Resort

The names of the suites – Erotic, Barbie, Kingpin, Crib – says it all. When you’re in Vegas to party, you’re doing it at the Palms. The hotel is undergoing a head-to-toe renovation, resulting in rooms that are both sleek and user-friendly. (Making them a great place to recover from a wild night.)

Las Vegas , 89103

3. The Palazzo

The Palazzo

It’s luxurious and understated, especially when compared to its flashy sister hotel, The Venetian. But it’s not fussy and attracts a younger clientele than similarly swank hotels on the Strip. Of special note: Carnevino restaurant, LAVO nightclub, and Canyon Ranch spa

4. El Cortez Cabana Suites

El Cortez Cabana Suites

The new hotel for the revitalized Fremont East district. And we like the look of the new Vegas: it’s intimate (only 64 rooms), high on style (bold colors, cool patterns, glam furniture), impressively affordable, and located in a lively, cool, artsy neighborhood.

5. Wynn Las Vegas and Encore

Wynn Las Vegas and Encore

No surface is left untouched at the groundbreaking Wynn and its sister hotel, Encore, from the overflowing gardens and elaborate textiles to the Murano glass chandeliers. It’s the sophisticated, fashiony hotel of choice.

6. Hard Rock

Hard Rock

They’ve been drawing the cool kids since opening, and they haven’t let up. In addition to the crowd, which is heavy on the locals, attractions include the always hot Nobu restaurant and the beautiful (and awesome) underground club Body English

4455 Paradise Rd.
Las Vegas, 89169

7. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

The newest luxury hotel on The Strip notable for its fun scene, striking design, and stylish rooms, many of which have terraces overlooking the Bellagio’s dancing fountains. The many impressive restaurants, spas, shops, and bars are located in a multi-level central area that links the East and West towers.

8. Mandarin Oriental

Mandarin Oriental

An intimate (for Vegas) hotel, with fewer than 400 rooms designed by Adam Tihany, many with impressive views of The Strip. There’s no casino (another Vegas rarity), which adds even more calm and sophistication to the surroundings. Of special note is the 1930s shanghai-themed spa and renown Parisian chef Pierre Gagnaire’s restaurant, Twist
