Places to stay

Wynn Las Vegas: “With a casino floor flooded with natural light, a botanical theme, and a collection of restaurants with rising celebrity chefs like Alex Stratta and David Walzog, Wynn Las Vegas has single-handedly redefined the standard of luxury in the Las Vegas casino hotel,” writes Travel + Leisure. The smallest rooms start at 620 square feet and continue to increase in size until you reach the villas, which top out at 7,000 square feet. Hoping to do some shopping? Enjoy Louis Vuitton, Manolo Blahnik, Cartier, and Chanel boutiques in the shopping esplanade.

The Palazzo: Expect angora wool throws, marble baths, and sunken lounge areas in this resort. In the mood for some New Orleans cuisine? Be sure to stop by Delmonico Steakhouse. Fusion’s cocktail menu provides Brazilian, Peruvian, and Mexican drinks, according to Conde Nast Traveler.

Bellagio: “The Bellagio has all the Vegas-style luxury spectacle, but it still somehow remains classy. With 67 acres, there’s space for an indoor botanical garden, a 8.5-acre lake in the middle of the desert, boutiques that include Prada and Chanel, and five pools housed in an Italian courtyard,” according to Oyster. Visitors can dine at Le Cirque or Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Prime Steakhouse, or enjoy the famous 1,200-plus dancing water fountains.
