Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Las Vegas

The Venetian
The attention to detail is amazing at The Venetian-no doubt because of the two historians hired to ensure architectural integrity and the team of 250 artisans, painters, and sculptors who made it happen.
Paris Las Vegas
The most Epcot-like of all the theme hotels, Paris Las Vegas is also the one that best carries through on the fantasy, with gorgeous reproductions of famous Paris landmarks.
The Mirage
The Mirage marks the end of one Vegas era and the beginning of modern days - and has a replica volcano to boot.
MGM Grand
Though it's soon to be overtaken by other Strip resorts in the throes of expanding, for the moment the MGM Grand reigns as the largest hotel in the country.
Fiamma
Fiamma is a dimly-lit Italian trattoria in the middle of restaurant row at MGM Grand that's a hidden gem for those in the know-including locals and Vegas regulars who don't need to see and be seen.
The Signature at MGM Grand
Just a quick five-minute walk from the MGM Grand, the all-suite Signature towers offer rooms that are more like condos, geared toward those visitors looking to get away from Vegas' 24-hour soundtrack.
Vdara
The all-suite, non-gaming Vdara is tucked away from the Strip in the $8.5-billion CityCenter complex.
Eiffel Tower
Red Rock Resort
This so-called 'locals' casino' combines breathtaking views of the flaming Red Rock Canyon with a serene spa, sumptuous dining, hip nightlife, and state-of-the-art gaming.

Not content with ruling the hotel roost in New York, Donald has made his move on Vegas with a tower that trumps most of the nearby competition.
Stratosphere Observation Deck

Planet Hollywood
Planet Hollywood bears almost no resemblance to its predecessor, the Arabian Nights-themed Aladdin, and that's a good thing.
The Palazzo
Like its sister property, The Venetian, The Palazzo boasts a star-studded roster of restaurants, high-end shopping, and a super-sized spa.
Neon Museum
Have an appreciation for flickering neon signs? You've come to the right place - if not on the Vegas Strip, than here at the Neon Museum.
Spago
Le Rêve
Another day, another Cirque show: This one's thin on storyline but thick on sets and stunts.
The fourth Cirque to open in Vegas, Kà blows away audiences as much for its trademark theatrics as for its amazing stage-a custom-built contraption that moves in almost every direction.
Wynn Sports Book
A writer once claimed, If I had to die in a sports book
Vdara Spa
It's difficult to be unique in the sea of Vegas' super spas, but Vdara stands apart as the city's only green spa.
