Here are the top newcomers in the Las Vegas hotel scene.
Vegas' first hotel and casino is still an iconic spot on the Strip.
The Tropicana first opened its lavish doors in 1957.
A revolution in luxury hotel accommodations has been born in Vegas.
Get ready to raise the bar for nighttime entertainment! This Las Vegas Strip pool area features 3-story bungalow lofts, cabanas, infinity pools and a party deck. It’s all at the Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan resort.
Instead of gladiators, you'll find bikini-clad bathers at the Temple Pool. Part of iconic Caesars Palace's gargantuan Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, The Temple Pool is one of 8 watery playgrounds at the hotel that references Rome's hedonistic past. With columns, an immense rotunda, squirting fountains and a golden statue of Caesar himself, the circular pool draws an elegant crowd. Take a break from gambling to lounge atop day beads or cavort in a cabana.
Gold glass that stretches 64 stories into the air, 11,000 square-feet of spa amenities, a 110-foot-long heated pool -- extravagance is the name of the game in Las Vegas, and Trump International follows in that tradition of luxury. With 24-hour in-suite dining and food delivery to your private, air-conditioned cabana on the pool deck, there isn’t much reason to leave the hotel -- except for the 4.2 miles of casinos, shows and trendy hot spots on the Strip. You might just forget to go home.
Not surprisingly, the Bellagio Hotel and Casino is home to one of the best pools on the Las Vegas Strip -- or should we say 5 pools. Marvel at the romantic, Mediterranean-infused masterpiece from a balcony before descending the staircase to recline on a (reserved) chaise lounge -- cocktail in hand, naturally, from the pool bar. If you’re planning to stay all day, opt for a private cabana, which in addition to a private patio and dressing area, boasts a wet bar, stocked refrigerator, cable TV and an iPod dock -- so you can take your poolside soundtrack into your own hands.
Visit the Palazzo in Las Vegas and get the VIP treatment in a Chairman Suite.
Soak up the sun this spring break at the MGM Grand Hotel’s Wet Republic. This massive 53,000-square-foot ultra pool is so hip, J-Lo herself gives it high marks; it doesn’t get much better than this 1-word endorsement from La Lopez: “Crazy!” We’d have to concur: With 2 saltwater pools, 8 individual pools and spas, VIP bungalows, party cabanas, spacious daybeds, oversized deluxe chaise lounges and DJs rocking turntables with the hottest beats, this is one pool-party scene you won’t soon forget.
