Palm Springs is a great getaway destination since it's just a couple hours' drive away and has tons of hotels to book at the last minute. Vegas is another weekend desert destination that's close by plane and has thousands of hotel rooms to choose from. But which one to choose?
Where are the best places to stay in Vegas? Which ones are your favorites?
We normally opt for a good deal somewhere on the strip and have been fairly happy with all of them. But none have blown us away. Probably we need to spend more money, which we will do if it's deemed worth it.
We aren't big gamblers of drinkers so we go more for decor, hot weather, pools and the architecture and gardens that abound. (Oh and the food, so much food!). The Palms has been marketed to death for being 'young and hip' but we're not sold. We've been curious to check out the new Wynn Resort since it's so new and so fancy. We've never stayed anywhere in Old Vegas but wonder if there are any gems there?
So what would you recommend?
