You need something special to grab people’s attention in Las Vegas, the brightest and liveliest city of them all. These five hotels have no trouble doing just that, taking guests on a journey to another destination, from the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids of Egypt to the Statue of Liberty and a Venetian Lagoon. In Las Vegas, it seems, anything is possible.
New York-New York Hotel & Casino
The Statue of Liberty looks down on the famous Strip, as a collection of iconic New York landmarks cluster behind her, from the Empire State Building to the Chrysler Building. The New York-New York Hotel & Casino brings the Big Apple to the Nevada desert where, beyond the gaming rooms, you can sample the best of Manhattan nightlife, from Broadway-style shows to an authentic New York pizzeria and a replica Greenwich Village with its collection of sidewalk cafes and eateries.
The Venetian Las Vegas
Look up from the marble floor of the Grand Colonnade Lobby in The Venetian Las Vegas and you’ll be transported across the ocean to renaissance Italy, thanks to its elegant ceiling frescos. You can dine at a café in a replica St Mark’s Square, shop the Grand Canal boutiques, or take a gondola ride along the canals that stand both inside and outside the hotel. Of course, among the numerous eateries at the hotel, some of the highlights are Italian, including the LAVO fine-dining restaurant and the sixth+mill pizzeria.
One of the most iconic names in Las Vegas, the Bellagio and its famous fountain are an exercise in Italian style and attitude, from the landscaped gardens to the range of high-end fashion boutiques, a world-class art collection, and Lago by Julian Serrano, a Michelin-starred Italian restaurant. This five-star hotel and casino also offers a packed programme of live shows and other entertainment, as well as a salon and spa with a steam room and sauna, whirlpools and a range of treatments on offer.
Luxor Hotel and Casino
The Great Pyramid of the Luxor Hotel and Casino is one of the most distinctive features of the Las Vegas cityscape, where the Egyptian theme continues with a giant Sphinx, pharaoh statues and a pool area seemingly straight out of some ancient civilisation. The hotel is also home to numerous restaurants and bars, an evening programme of live music and shows, and a spa that offers massages, facials and various body treatments.
Paris Las Vegas Resort & Casino
You don’t necessarily need to go to the French capital to climb the Eiffel Tower – you just need to hit the Strip. The centrepiece of the Paris Las Vegas Resort & Casino is a half-scale replica of the famous tower, with a viewing deck that gives you incredible views across the Las Vegas skyline. Elsewhere in the hotel, you’ll find a mix of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes, live music and shows, and an outdoor pool with a bar and spa.
