Luxury Hotels in Las Vegas

Most Expensive Hotels in Las Vegas

By

What is the most expensive hotel in Las Vegas? It really depends on a lot of small factors like entertainment, dining and the all important gambling issue. These hotels are the luxurious and most expensive hotels in Las Vegas however a suite in plenty of other hotels in Las Vegas can set you back just as much. These hotels are a step above the rest because they can cater to those more discerning clients.

NOTE: The term luxury hotel is used differently in Las Vegas. The moniker is often placed on hotels simply because of the price of their rooms. While these resorts can cater to the needs of the high rollers who spend a lot of money on gambling they are not your typical luxury hotels. "True" luxury hotels around the world will have a level of service that is both personal and refined. Your every need is met and you tend to feel as if the hotel operates strictly to fulfill your needs. Las Vegas hotels often lack the intimate check-in settings or the personal touches in your room that help to create the luxury feeling. Valet, car service, housekeeping and the overall resort/guest relationship is far more distant than you would expect elsewhere.

That does not mean that you cannot have a luxurious experience in Las Vegas it just means that it is far different.
