Las Vegas is the most exciting holiday destination on the planet. Whether you’re looking for gambling action, entertaining shows or an energetic nightlife, Las Vegas is the place to be. Most people who visit Las Vegas vow to return again in the near future. That’s a telling sign. If you choose to holiday in Sin City, then you will need a place to stay. Let’s take a look at the 5 Most Famous Vegas Casinos. Of course, these casinos are also hotels.


The Venetian has an Italian theme, but it’s more than just a theme. When you’re here, you can take a gondola ride in a moat and drink an espresso in a courtyard. The catch is that you’re not really outside. It will look as though you’re outside, and you will question whether you are outside or not, but you will indeed by indoors, amazed and fooled by the stellar artwork. The fresco ceilings, beautifully manicured gardens and Grand Canal Shoppes are also nice touches. If you like to play poker, then you will be happy to know that the Venetian has the largest poker room in Las Vegas.

The Bellagio is by far the nicest hotel and casino in Las Vegas. In regards to the hotel, some people feel it’s one of the best in the world, not just in Las Vegas. The Bellagio is all about class. It’s an Italian lakeside resort with dancing fountains, lakeside restaurants, a seasonal atrium, a 55,000-square-foot spa and the best service anywhere on the strip. The reviews for the Bellagio are rave. Complaints are extremely rare.

MGM Grand

The MGM Grand can be described in one word, which is enormity. The casino is the largest on the strip, so if you’re visiting Las Vegas to gamble, then this will be the place to stay. The shows, restaurants, and lions that walk above your head, are enjoyed by most visitors. The Grand Buffet is known as special because you can eat sushi, bagels and grits for breakfast. That’s quite a spread, and there is much more on offer as well. The rooms are consistently upgraded, so you will never have to worry about staying somewhere outdated.

Caesar’s Palace

If you stay at Caesar’s Palace, you will have a choice between a room with a round bed and mirrored ceiling and a more modern room in the new tower. Of course, your decision should be based on who you’re traveling with. The Forum Shops, Garden of the Gods, Celine Dion, large casino and high-end restaurants are all appealing features at Caesar’s Palace.


The Luxor has an Egyptian theme. It stands out because it’s shaped like a pyramid. However, there is one potential negative, which is that the Luxor is located at the end of the strip. If you don’t like crowds, then this is good news. If you want easy access to the center of the strip, then this is bad news. That said, walking to the center of the strip will only take a few minutes. One big positive for the Luxor is that it’s connected by walkway to Mandalay Bay and Excalibur. This essentially allows you to enjoy three casino resorts for the price of one. The Luxor’s casino is smaller than most others, but the nightclubs here are impressive.
