Visitors to Las Vegas are spoiled for choice when it comes to lodging options — our experts recommend over 150 hotels, and many luxury options are priced very competitively. Four properties, however, stand out above the others, with TripExpert Scores over 95. Of these four, the Bellagio and the Wynn are Vegas classics, with nightclubs, 24-hour casinos, and an extensive range of dining and drinking options. By contrast, the other two are low-key, casino-free getaways: the Four Seasons and the Mandarin Oriental. Read on find out which suits you best.
Why these results are reliable. Our ratings and rankings for hotels in Vegas are based on over 6,000 reviews by professionals writing for travel guides, magazines and newspapers. Our scoring system can’t be gamed by hotels and our research shows it is more accurate than user review sites.

Pool at the Bellagio

Bellagio Las Vegas 95 has been open for 20 years and yet remains a touchstone for Vegas luxury. Its elegant pool complex, well-appointed rooms and top-notch service are frequently praised by reviewers. It’s also the most centrally located of our four picks, which is a major advantage — especially compared to the Wynn — if you’re planning on spending a lot of time walking up and down the Strip.

Pool at the Four Seasons

In Vegas, there is often a gap between promise and reality. Many hotels purport to offer old school luxury; the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas 95 is one of few properties that truly delivers. It has the newest, most well-maintained rooms of any hotel in Vegas we’ve visited, and beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding its pool. There’s no casino, and no thumping poolside parties, making it a wonderful retreat from the rest of the Strip.

Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

Like the Four Seasons, the Mandarin Oriental is praised by reviewers for being a quiet haven, a spot of sophisticated elegance in a complex that also lacks a casino but that includes an outstanding spa and restaurant. The design, which evokes contemporary Hong Kong, is a welcome change to the aesthetic of the rest of the Strip.

XS Nightclub, Wynn Las Vegas

With almost 3,000 rooms, the Wynn Las Vegas 93 is one of the largest and most amenity-rich hotel complexes in Vegas. You’ll get a larger room here than you will at many other hotels, and with access to everything in this genuinely impressive and kitsch-free resort, you’ll rarely need to leave (that’s the idea).
