10 Las Vegas Resorts Popular with Guests

Las Vegas is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in the United States. Sin City is a gambling and entertainment mecca that has coined the phrase “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” Beautiful and lively Las Vegas resorts allow visitors to transport themselves to fantastic destinations like Paris, Venice, Egypt and more.

Las Vegas resorts can offer some of the best value for money in the United States. The slowest period of the year in Vegas typically encompasses parts of December, January and February as well as late June through August. The week prior to Christmas and the week following New Year’s is usually a great bet for bargains. Here are 10 of the most popular Las Vegas hotels according average guest ratings as well as frequency of social media posts!

Las Vegas is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the United States. Especially if you visit during the offseason, you can get great value on your stay. The slowest period of the year in Vegas typically includes parts of December, January and February as well as late June through August (which is quite sweltering outside the air conditioned resorts). The week prior to Christmas and the week following New Year’s is usually a great bet for bargains. 

There is a huge variety of entertainment and experiences to suit many tastes in Sin City. I tend to prefer the destination themed hotels, as they recreate a variety of exciting faraway experiences. But there really is something for almost everyone at Las Vegas resorts.
