Hotel prices vary greatly depending on the season and are particularly high in the milder spring and autumn, on public holidays and during special events. It is advisable to book outside of these periods to get the best rates. The hotel tax in Las Vegas is 12%.
The following hotels in Las Vegas are divided into three categories:
Luxurious (over $ 150)
Moderate ($ 100 to $ 150)
Inexpensive (up to $ 100)
These are minimum rates for a standard double room with tax, if applicable not stated otherwise.
Four Seasons Hotel
The location of the Four Seasons Hotel on the southern end of the Strip gives the impression of a secluded vacation spot in the heart of Las Vegas’ main business district. However, the hotel knows its guests very well: they stay here because they want to take advantage of the excellent services for business travelers and want to enjoy the elegant French interior, not to let off steam in a casino.
The range of guest rooms ranges from the 75 square meter Las Vegas room in rich wood tones with a large double bed, living room, marble bathroom and walk-in closet to the 409 square meter presidential suite with complete living and dining room, various bedrooms and a far-reaching view the strip and the mountains.
The ballrooms and meeting rooms are designed for large congresses, but smaller meetings are also catered for.

As the name suggests, beauty played a major role in the design of the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. The hotel is on the Strip, but is separated from it by an access road and a 3.2-hectare pond with over 1,000 exquisite, timed fountains, as well as a botanical garden and an art gallery. The 3,933 suites and rooms are equally impressive; its price depends on how good the view of the world-famous fountains, iconic for Las Vegas, is.

The Palms Hotel and Casino
The Palms is one of the newer casino hotels in Las Vegas and is mainly aimed at young, well-heeled celebrities and their fans. For example, some suites are equipped for the special needs of NBA basketball players. Chicago’s famous Nine and Ghostbar and the Parisian Buddha Bar were copied here and are meeting places for the “rich and beautiful”. The rooms are furnished with the usual details – and the less common ones. For example, there is a private outdoor hot tub in the Playboy Tower.

The MGM Grand, located on the Strip with more than 5,000 rooms, is one of the best hotels in Las Vegas when it comes to low prices, but a lot of effort has been put into maintaining its own character. The art deco decor of the guest rooms is modern, bright and tasteful. Black and white photos adorn the walls.
The first-class restaurants bear the signature of celebrity chefs such as Joel Robuchon, Wolfgang Puck and Emiril. The casino where the famous Cirque du Soleil provides entertainment is huge.

Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino
The aquarium and the high ceilings of the entrance hall do not suggest what a cheap hotel it is.
A monorail connects Mandalay Bay to some of the trendiest spots on the Las Vegas Strip. The rooms on the upper floors offer excellent city views, and the restaurants are particularly innovative.
Since there are four swimming pools, you will definitely catch a good spot by the pool.
Mandalay Bay is definitely one of the best budget hotels in Las Vegas.

El Cortez Hotel
The Cortez is one of the smaller hotels in Las Vegas. You can trace its history back to the era of Bugsy Siegel, one of the city’s founders. In 1963, the old hotel and casino was acquired by a newcomer and redesigned in the style of the American Southwest.
Today the hotel has a small selection of room types and unbeatable prices to offer. The furniture is a bit sparse, but comfortable. The pluses of the small casino hotel are the friendly atmosphere and the proximity to the central tourist attractions. For the grandiose casinos along the Strip, however, it is no competition.
