While staying on the Las Vegas Strip puts you in the heart of all the action, many off-the-Strip properties offer authentic art/entertainment, late-night dining, and a local vibe. With tons of great amenities and easy access, these off-the-Strip resorts are generally less crowded and less costly.
VIRGIN HOTELS LAS VEGAS
At Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, you can stay in one of 1,500 well-appointed chambers and suites in the hotel’s three towers. Make plans to gamble at the ultra-modern, 60,000-sq.-ft. Mohegan Sun Casino, or kick back at the Élia Beach Club, which offers two pools and state-of-the-art entertainment. There’s also live music in the 4,500-person theater. Notable culinary experiences include Todd English’s Olives, Kris Yenbamroong’s Night + Market, the legendary Nobu, Michael and David Morton’s One Steakhouse, and Kassi Beach House, from restauranteur Nick Mathers.
THE ENGLiSH HOTEL, A TRIBUTE PORTFOLIO HOTEL
Minutes away from the busy Strip, you can immerse yourself in the “renegade,” trendy area of Las Vegas. The ENGLiSH Hotel, located in the vibrant Arts District, is an expertly-designed boutique hotel (for ages 21 and above only) operated by renowned chef Todd English. It offers 74 upscale rooms equipped with in-room cocktail carts, a see-through “sexy shower,” a secluded pool, and a swanky outdoor lounge.
GREEN VALLEY RANCH
If you prefer stress-free style over bustle, stay at the Mediterranean-styled Green Valley Ranch Resort located in Henderson, just 16 miles from the Strip. Here, you can enjoy a stroll through the vineyards and distant views of the Strip from the 9-acre “backyard” and a sand-bottom pool. There is also an award-winning spa, music lounges, and sports bars. Feed your body and soul with authentic Italian and modern Japanese cuisine, seafood, and steak at the resort’s many restaurants. And when you’re in mood for the nightlife of Sin City, a 24-hour limousine shuttle offers round-trip transportation to the Strip.
