Las Vegas has traditionally been known as the city of decadence and luxury, with hedonistic pursuits and thrill-seeking top of the agenda for tourists. The phrase ‘Sin City’ bring to mind images of cash being frittered away in casinos, bottles of champagne worth the same amount as a small property and 5* hotels built upon every square inch. But a holiday to Vegas doesn’t have to break the bank; in fact there are just as many 3* hotels in the gambling capital of the world. Choosing a mid range hotel is a smart move for those on a budget as there’s more cash left over to go towards enjoying the hundreds of Las Vegas attractions and shows.
The Las Vegas Hilton is located mere moments away from the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip and is connected by a monorail for ultimate convenience. After recently undergoing a $100 million redesign, the Hilton Las Vegas has re-established itself as one of the biggest hotel names in Vegas, with it’s spa, tennis courts, casino and theatre. The hotel is home to a number of restaurants, including the world’s largest Benihana, with various different cuisines from all over the planet to be sampled. All rooms at the Las Vegas Hilton provide either a Strip, golf course or mountain view, so residents are guaranteed to be greeted with quite a sight each morning and every night. For the more spontaneous residents of the Hilton, there is even an on-site chapel performing wedding ceremonies named Le Bella Chapel.
The Hooters chain is one of the most well-known in the USA and their hotel in Las Vegas continues the theme of their restaurants. The Hooters Casino Hotel has a beachy, laid-back vibe that provides a welcome break from the lights of the Strip. Located near Madame Tussauds and just one block east of the Strip, Hooters is conveniently placed for both easy access to attractions and a more casual atmosphere. There is entertainment such as Purple Reign, a leading Prince tribute show, and many bars and restaurants to choose from, all in-keeping with the traditional Hooters theme.
For tourists who want to stay further away from the hustle and bustle, The Gold Coast Hotel can be found one mile west of the main Strip, with a free shuttle offered to and from the hotel. Many different dining options are offered and the hotel has a fitness suite for residents to work off some of the fresh seafood, steak and prime rib available at The Cortez Room. A 24-hour TGI Friday and a Ports O’Call buffet ensure that hungry guests are well catered for. Entertainment-wise, there is a 70-lane bowling alley, a video arcade and a 100,000 square foot casino which has slot machines with some of the highest limits around. Over 711 guestrooms provide luxury accommodation at one of the best value-for-money hotels in Vegas.
