What to Consider When Choosing a Hotel in Las Vegas 6

The flashy city of Las Vegas can be found in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. Thanks to its world-renowned nightlife, 24-hour everything, and endless options for activities, Las Vegas is lovingly known as the city that never sleeps. When planning your trip to Las Vegas, you don’t have to worry about a lack of entertainment, good food, or celebrities. You’ll find it all in Vegas.

Before getting the party started, you’ll need to book a hotel. You won’t find a shortage of hotels and resorts by any means, but you’re likely to be overwhelmed with options, and figuring out which one to choose can be tricky.

Luckily, some online tools can help you navigate through hotel deals and options and promo codes and coupons from sources such as Priceline to help ensure that you get the best deal possible. When deciding whether you would prefer the Strip or Fremont Street, you’ll want to consider a few factors.

Regardless of where you stay, you’re going to want to pop back and forth from Fremont Street to the Strip to get a feel for each location during your stay. Depending on how you’d like to spend most days, you may prefer one area of Las Vegas over the other.

Fremont Street is more of a hipster area in Las Vegas. You’ll find bars with backyard seesaws, live outdoor music shows, and a few museums including the Mob Museum and the Burlesque Hall of Fame. Get a little higher by taking a ride on the Fremont Street zip line.

If you’re looking for the glitz and glam of Las Vegas, perhaps the better option for you would be picking a hotel on the Strip. The Strip is the 4-mile long main road, the flashy Vegas you would expect with lights, clubs, booze slushie stands, and hints of a different country everywhere you look.


Amazing dining opportunities abound in Las Vegas. Again, on Fremont Street, you’re going to find the options a little more relaxed than the luxurious Strip.

Dining options on Fremont Street include the Heart Attack Grill, where you eat for free if you weigh more than 350 pounds, and Denny’s, where you can go for free pancakes if you decide to get hitched while you’re visiting. People say, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” but the calories and legal vows may follow you home.

If you’d rather watch a water and light show with the Las Vegas Eiffel Tower in the background, perhaps Lago at the Bellagio is more your style. This Italian restaurant takes a modern style on dining by offering small plates that are perfect for sampling and sharing.


When you’re thinking about card games, penny drinks (as long as you play), and bright machines, you won’t be disappointed. With slot machines in the airport, you’ll be all set if you can’t wait to get to your hotel or want one more go at the machines before saying farewell.

Do some research to find out what you want to see and do, and plan your accommodations accordingly.
