With Las Vegas tourism continuing to boom and more and more visitors coming to Sin City for the first time, not all of them are looking to gamble and party like rock stars. A growing number simply want to stay at a respected luxury hotel without dealing with the drama that often surrounds casinos featuring the hottest nightclubs and pools.
Yes, Vegas has slot machines at laundromats and gas stations. But Vegas also has hotels without casinos for those who want to experience a comfortable and enjoyable vacation sans gambling.
The following is a brief list of the Top three non-casino Strip hotels that are very close to some of the best gaming but far enough away to forget it’s nearby:
Location, location, location. Located right next to the Planet Hollywood Resort in the middle of the Strip, Elara offers everything you’d expect from the Hilton Grand Vacations Club. Whether you choose a studio or suite, a pool or city view, Elara can take you away from Vegas and let you enjoy some of the best amenities in town. Free self-parking and cabana rentals near a resort-style pool are a few highlights of Elara.
Another oddly-named, suites-only hotel catering to non-gamblers is just south of Elara in Aria at City Center. Vdara offers long-term rentals to guests who want to stick around a little longer than usual and also has a nice pool and cabanas. But what really sets Vdara apart from its competition is the luxurious spa, salon and fitness center that takes up 18,000 square feet of space and also includes a smoothie bar.
The Four Seasons
Those who don’t mind going even further south down the Strip will find The Four Seasons adjacent to Mandalay Bay. Like Vdara, The Four Seasons has outstanding room accommodations and one of the best spas in Vegas, rated five stars by Forbes Magazine. In addition, The Four Seasons has one of the best weekend brunch buffets in the city at the Veranda, an Italian restaurant that recommends reservations because it’s so popular with tourists and locals alike.
