Delano Las Vegas
With a gold exterior that glimmers in the desert sunshine, Delano Las Vegas is a bold and stylish hotel for those looking for luxurious stay in the city.
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.
B&B Ristorante
B&B Ristorante is the first Vegas outpost of Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, the culinary duo behind two of New York's top Italian restaurants, Babbo and Del Posto.
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.

Joe’s Seafood
The lively patio at this Miami transplant is a favourite spot of Friday power-lunchers.

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.
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.
Palms Place
If a spot on the Strip isn't paramount, it's hard to imagine cooler digs than the apartment-style rooms at Palms Place, the Palms' sister property.
Vdara
The all-suite, non-gaming Vdara is tucked away from the Strip in the $8.5-billion CityCenter complex.
Luxor

The Bellagio

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.
Planet Hollywood
Planet Hollywood bears almost no resemblance to its predecessor, the Arabian Nights-themed Aladdin, and that's a good thing.
Fin
Fin, an awaited addition to the ever-evolving Mirage, is a refined spot in an intimate glass setting with gold and jade accents - not at all your typical Chinese restaurant.
Tao
