When it comes to hotels in Las Vegas, you almost have too many options. There's the always busy strip hotels that make the city a shining example of excess, the middle class vibe of the downtown hotels, the far flung off strip hotels that range from Hard Rock glamorous to utilitarian spots like Boulder Station — the rest of the city is equally populated with small-time hotels, motels and RV parks that means there is always a room available somewhere in town.

While Las Vegas NV hotels are everywhere, the majority of tourists descend upon the well-loved strip casinos. To add a taste of sophistication to go with your trip, Las Vegas hotels like the Bellagio, Caesars Palace and the Mirage are ready and waiting in the heart of the strip. Few things in the world compare to these hotels, converting the city skyline into one of the most recognizable strips of land in the entire world - the American version of Shanghai's Bund, complete with running up billions of dollars in electric bills. Though the Paris, the newly renovated Planet Hollywood, Treasure Island and the Venetian are not quite as popular as the largest hotels in Las Vegas, each of them offer excellent experiences while keeping the price down just a little.

The Mandalay Bay (pictured), MGM Grand and off-strip hotels like the Hard Rock and the Palms are also of the same tier, casino-wise, and their clubs and bars are absolute requisites on any tour of unbelievable Las Vegas nightlife.

The Wynn is one of the many in luxury hotels, with a steep rate to match the luxury. It has to be seen to be believed, but there's a reason Steve Wynn was so proud to affix his name in giant letters on the gleaming exterior.

The best values on the strip happen to be on the southern part of the strip. The Excalibur is often the cheapest hotel with easy access to the other strip casino hotels, and if you don't mind the occasional child running past your blackjack table, it is one of the highest rated hotels in Las Vegas. Similar things can be said for the New York New York, while the Luxor is every bit as good a value as the Excalibur, but with a mind-bending interior, a better buffet and a giant spotlight on top.

There are plenty of other Las Vegas hotels on the strip, each one offering about the same thing, but with different themes to catch your eye. Circus Circus doesn't really resemble its name, but it's a good deal and further away from the main crowds of the strip. The Stratosphere attempts to look futuristic, but in the quaint way that the imagined future looked to designers back in the 50s.

The Fremont Street Experience winds its way down its namesake street in downtown Vegas. Here you'll find a number of more subtle hotels in Las Vegas, like the Plaza, Binions and Golden Nugget. While quality here is more inconsistent, the casinos make millions of dollars on middle-aged tourists tired of the strip, and on budget travelers that still want an authentic Vegas experience.

All in all, there are hundreds of Las Vegas hotels to choose from and all withing range of the popular things to do in Las Vegas, but mostly it comes down to location and price. The first thing most people ask when you return from Las Vegas is: "Where did you stay?" a far less depressing question that the usual follow-up: "Did you win?"
