Cromwell Las Vegas

The playboy: Cromwell

This newish mid-Strip boutique hotel was made for a modern man like you, that is the kind who reads GQ magazine, shops at Barney’s and drives a Tesla Model X. Everything about this luxury stunner (from the same folks who brought us the Hotel Gansevoort in NYC) screams playboy including the elegant Parisian decor inside each of the 188 guest rooms, the rain showers, flat-screen TVs and rooftop hotspot Drai’s Beachclub and Nightclub. Start your evening with a cocktail at Bound by Salvatore and make friends with the hottie next to you. Then bring them to dinner at Giada Restaurant from super chef Giada de Laurentiis.

The hipster: Oasis at Gold Spike

Ever since Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh snatched up 60 acres of downtown Las Vegas and poured a whopping $350 million into it, the area has stirred your creative, nonconformist soul. Thrift stores, cafés, yoga studios, indie boutiques and cheap living spaces abound and for all its starts and stops it has become a bona fide magnet for dreamers, innovators and entrepreneurs like you. You need a crash pad in the center of it all and will thus look no further than Oasis, a retro motel with cheap and cheerful rooms attached to restaurant, lounge and outdoor play space the Gold Spike.

The dilettante: The LINQ

Rather than drill down and discover the heart and soul of a city, you are the traveler who wants a bite-sized sample of it all. Enter the LINQ, a perfectly affordable and pleasing resort and casino smack dab in the literal middle of everything and a perfect place for you to get a teeny snippet of the best Sin City has to offer. You’ve got the world’s largest observation wheel (the High Roller) in your backyard and also shopping, dining and drinking at the LINQ Promenade. Meanwhile, Vegas legends like Paris, the Flamingo, the Bellagio, TI and the Venetian are at your literal fingertips. Book a cabana room with private patio…heaven.

Red Rock Casino

The family guy: Red Rock Casino

Do you really want to drag your children up and down the overcrowded Las Vegas Strip all the while trying to squeeze past party goers, drunkards and those obnoxious dudes who try and shove flyers for strip clubs in your face? Enter the Red Rock Casino, a sprawling resort located a breathable 11 miles from the Strip and boosting a 72-lane bowling alley, a 16-screen multiplex, an expansive pool and a supervised kids-specific play area called Kids Zone. Best of all, Red Rock Canyon National Recreation Area is just 2 miles away—in case your kids want to catch a Pokemon in the wild.

SLS Las Vegas

The rock star: SLS Las Vegas

You thrive in the spotlight, but desperately need to retreat from it at some point; you love the luxe life, but also crave privacy. Enter the newish SLS, a glamorous Strip stunner that rose out of the ashes of the former Sahara and is located far from the clutter and congestion of the mid-Strip resorts. The hotel’s style tilts Hollywood Regency, whether poolside at the Foxtail in your own candy-striped cabana or in one of the hotel’s 1600 stylish guest rooms. Meanwhile, privacy awaits at Ciel Spa and so does dinner at Baazar Meat by José Andréas, one of the most buzzed about restaurants in all Sin City right now.

Orleans Hotel and Casino

The penny pincher: Orleans Hotel and Casino

The World Famous Las Vegas Strip on the cheap, you say? It can’t be done. By the time you add in taxes and resort fees, even a budget option like Excalibur can set you back $200 nightly. Instead, you let the good times roll at the Orleans, a Mardi Gras-themed hotel a mile and a half west of the Strip, but a mere 6-minute (and traffic free) Uber ride to New York, New York. This cheap and cheerful hotel offers you nightly room rates starting at as little $40 and also $5 crap tables and endless penny slots for the cheap gambler that you are. Dollar for dollar, it’s a solid oasis and gets you close to Strip action without breaking the bank.

Encore and Wynn Hotels

The tycoon: The Wynn and Encore

That silver spoon in your mouth has been with you since birth and it’s not being yanked out anytime soon. Since the luxe life is all you know, get yourself a room at either the Wynn or Encore, two shiny desert stunners that set the gold standard in luxury. The Tower Suites include an exclusive entrance and private registration, daily complimentary access for two at restaurant Tableau and access to a private pool. Elsewhere on the grounds are the 18-hole, par-70 Wynn Golf Club, luxury shops by the likes of Alexander McQueen, Prada, Hermès and Dior and all kinds of extravagant dining options like the Country Club and Costa di Mare.

The historian: El Cortez

Las Vegas loves reinvention and it seems the bulldozers and cranes are perpetually out to wipe clean this storied urban landscape you covet so much. Not so at the El Cortez, which opened in 1946 and is one of a handful of downtown casinos still surviving and thriving decades after the attention switched mostly to the Strip. Everything about the El Cortez is ancient including the ambience, the clientele, the cheap prices and the surrounding neighborhood which includes nearby cultural gems such as the Neon Museum and Mob Museum. The El Cortez is old and retro in the best way possible and that’s exactly how you like it.

Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan

The flirt: The Cosmopolitan

You’re a kittenish provocateur and a slinky, late-night coquette who plays the field and gets exactly everything she wants. The Cosmopolitan fits you like a glove because you can sidle up to the bar at Chandelier and expect a complimentary cocktail from no less than several gentleman suitors, nibble on dainty caviar tacos at Rabbit.Rose.Lie. or watch all eyes on you (aren’t they always?) as you toss a pair of dice at the craps table. A morning retreat from the previous night’s excess finds you having a morning coffee—make that mimosa—either on your balcony or maybe at Eggslut, a name that makes you laugh just a little.

the Bellagio

The romantic: The Bellagio

If Vegas is where you’ve come for a weekend of romance, especially one that includes getting down on one knee and popping the question, a stay at the Bellagio is in your future. All senses are heightened at this massive mid-Strip stunner where the service is top notch and the tasteful ambience inspired by Italy. Steal a buss on the cheek in the lobby where the Chiluly stained glass flowers loom overhead, linger in the ever-changing and intoxicating Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and book an al fresco table at Lago—so close to the famed dancing fountains you may even be misted by them. This is Vegas for lovers.

Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, spa, bathhouse, Sin City

Qua Spa and Baths

The exhibitionist: Caesars Palace

Whether it’s stepping out of a limousine, canoodling openly in the VIP corner of a nightclub or teetering down the street in impossibly difficult high heels (we’re looking at you, bachelorettes!), Vegas is all about being seen and Caesars is where you like to show off. If you’re a lady you might be sunbathing topless at Venus Pool European Pool Lounge, while brave fellas can strut their assets at communal Roman bathhouse Qua Spa. Then there are the visitors to bawdy, intimate stage show Absinthe who will almost certainly end up in the spotlight and love every minute of it. Plus, the mid-Strip location guarantees conspicuousness.
