Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
3667 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
If the purpose of your visit to Las Vegas is to have as much fun as possible, then look no further than Planet Hollywood Resort! This is one of the most PHabulous casino resorts in Las Vegas - the number of shows played here speaks for itself! Most shows cater to adult audience, except V - The Ultimate Variety, and Comedy Pet which are shows for kids.
However, keep in mind that this is definitely not a family-friendly hotel. There is an atmosphere of eternal adult party, which comes with it's own drawbacks (or benefits - depends on how you look at it) such as half-dressed revelers, loud music and sleepless nights. That would be one of our hotels of choice for a bachelor party in Vegas!
There are plenty of bars at Planet Hollywood, where you can grab a 2 for 1 drink with V Card, which also gives free admission to Planet Hollywood's Gallery Nightclub and a few dozens of other nightclubs and bars in Vegas.
Another great feature of Planet Hollywood is that every room has a "movie" theme and is decorated with fun movie items and memorabilia. If you ever wondered where things go after a movie is shot - that's definitely one of the places!
There are plenty of restaurants in Planet Hollywood - both inside the hotel, and in Miracle Miles shopping center, which is among the best in Las Vegas. And in Cabo Wabo Cantina in Miracle Miles you can also watch a show by a rotating cast of good stand up comedians. While you are at Miracle Miles, don't forget the free Fountain Show and free Rainstorm!

Casino resorts in Las Vegas on the Strip - Wynn
3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South,NV 89109
Review: The Wynn Resort is not only one of the top casino resorts in Las Vegas, but it's also a golf resort. You already know of course that it's brought to you by Steve Wynn, the man behind Bellagio, The Mirage, Treasure Island and Encore ?
Wynn offers some of the nicest rooms in the city - with floor-to ceiling windows with incredible views of the Strip or the golf course. Much as in Bellagio, floral motifs prevail at Wynn - from flower arrangements that change seasonally to beautiful floral prints on the floors. Another great feature of the hotel is plenty of natural light.
The pools at the resort come with Jacuzzi, private cabanas, mini-fridge and plasma TV. The Wynn Resort is an adult paradise and there's even a topless sunbathing area called European pool - so think twice before bringing your kids along! The spa at Wynn features a zen garden and offers all possible and impossible treatments that will spoil you to no end! Wynn Resort is also home venue to the incredibly beautiful show Le Reve.
For dining, there are plenty of restaurants, offering everything from fine dining to vegan and casual, located on site or at the nearby Encore - guests can use both hotels. Two hotspots at Wynn are its nightclubs Tryst stretching along a private lagoon and boasting a 90 foot waterfall and a more intimate Surrender where you can catch the music by DJs Tiësto and deadmau5.

casino resorts in Las Vegas - The Venetian
3355 Las Vegas Blvd S, NV 89109
Review: At The Venetian Resort attention to detail is almost supernatural - from the landmarks of Venice to famous Venetians walking around in medieval costumes to gondoliers riding in authentic Venetian gondolas to opera singers singing, well, Italian opera. Did we mention that the The Venetian is, hands down, the most beautiful of all top casino resorts in Las Vegas?
Other than looking around and taking gondola rides with your loved ones, there are plenty of things to do at the Venetian. The resort hosts multiple concerts and shows, and its Canyon Ranch SpaClub is one of the best in Vegas! If you want to do something even more extravagant (and expensive), try shopping at the stunning Grand Canale Shoppes for some designer brands. The shopping area looks like an Italian street, with a canal in between the shops.
The Venetian Resort shares many of its amenities with its sister property the Palazzo (below). There are multiple restaurants on site for any taste, offering ethnic dishes. The pool area completes the Italian experience, reminding of a Venetian garden.

casino resorts in Las Vegas on the Strip - The Palazzo
3255 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Review: The Palazzo Hotel is a new all-suites luxury extension of the Venetian Resort, however it's on our list of the top casino resorts in Las Vegas on it's own merits. The Palazzo does not have the Venetian's Venice-themed bells and whistles, but it does have its own casino. The hotel's guests can use the facilities of the Venetian, including it's concerts and shows.
The Palazzo shares 7 swimming pools and multiple restaurants with the Venetian. The Palazzo also has its own luxury swimming pool called Azure with private cabanas. Some of Palazzo's restaurants are Grand Lux Cafe offering ethnic dishes and Sushisamba serving Brazilian, Peruvian and Japanese culinary wonders. The resort also boasts a huge shopping area The Shoppes At The Palazzo.
There's never a dull moment at the Palazzo Hotel - especially at night, considering the selection of hot nightclubs, bars and lounges, including Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar and LAVO nightclub.
casino resorts in Las Vegas on the Strip - Cosmopolitan
3708 Las Vegas Blvd, NV 89109
Perhaps the only thing lacking in the Cosmopolitan Resort, one of the newest hotels in Vegas, is its own show! But this little nuisance can be ignored, considering they do host some live music performances. Otherwise, this is a huge hotel with 3,995 rooms, offering so many conveniences it could be a small city! One of top casino resorts in Las Vegas, Cosmopolitan consists of two towers, offering fantastic view of the Strip from its private terraces!
This chic resort boasts 13 restaurant choices headed by world-renown chefs - from the casual French-cuisine Comme Ça to Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill to a yummy steakhouse STK. There are six bar and lounges at this hotel serving exquisite cocktails and even ice cream. You can listen to live music or bet on sports events. The resort's exotic cave-like Sahra Spa & Hammam offers rejuvenating experience and all imaginable scrubs and steam baths. There is also a salon on site called Violet Bar.
The best parts of the Cosmopolitan Resort are its Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub with top DJs, three swimming pools, each with a distinct atmosphere and design - Marquee Dayclub Pool, Bamboo Pool and Boulevard Pool. Marquee is also included in the V Card deal.
Entertainment at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Casino Resort
While there are no permanent shows at the Cosmopolitan, there are quite a few concerts and other events:
casino resorts in Las Vegas on the Strip - ARIA at CityCenter
3730 Las Vegas Boulevard South, NV 89109
Review: ARIA Hotel is one of the most modern top casino resorts in Las Vegas boasting a prime location in the center of the CityCenter! The hotel's huge glass silhouette sets it apart from other hotels on the Strip, as does its ultra modern interior with all the glass and silver decorations and high-tech remote controls that control pretty much everything in the rooms.
The hotel's night life is rich and fabulous with its five bars and lounges and three stylish night clubs, Gold Boutique designed by The Light Group, and Cirque du Soleil. The ARIA Hotel is also home venue of Cirque du Soleil show Zarkana that is coming soon. It's casino is ultra-modern and spacious.
The resort offers spa and salon services in the spirit of the top casino resorts in Las Vegas offering everything from massage therapy to facial and body care. Another hot-spot of the resort is its gorgeous ellipse-shaped swimming pools with hot tubs and fountains, surrounded by beautifully arranged palm trees.

In November 2012 Aria Las Vegas starts hosting a new show: Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil!
casino resorts in Las Vegas on the Strip - Monte Carlo
3770 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Review: Monte Carlo a bit older than other great casino resorts in Las Vegas. One day Monte Carlo was considered the 7th largest hotel in the world, but not it's surpassed by other resorts around it in size and grandeur. However, it strikes a good balance when it comes to a place to relax in or have fun.
Monte Carlo has a great location on the Strip - close to many other resorts and to CityCenter.
The design of Monte Carlo evokes Place du Casino in Monte Carlo and is built in a luxurious European style, but nothing over the top. If you like beautiful statues, fountains, colonnades, arches and chandeliers - it's a feast for your eyes!
Rooms in Monte Carlo are small but comfortable. If money is not an issue, you should opt out for Hotel32 Studio - it's luxurious boutique extension, located on the last 32nd floor.
Monte Carlo offers 9 restaurants with a wide range of cuisine - French cuisine at Andre's Restaurant by Andre Rochat, spicy Mexican food at Diablo's Cantina, Italian dishes at D.Vino.
Should you win a lot of money at it's casino, there is a great shopping center Street of Dreams.
Activities at the hotel also include splashing in it's Wave Pool, relaxing in it's Lazy River and occasional pool parties.
