Top Casino Resorts in Las Vegas
There are a ton of reasons to visit Vegas. You can check out its interesting museums, like the Neon and Mobs Museums, or its attractions such as The Linq and the scale models of the Eiffel Tower and the Paris Opera House. You can experience Vegas Indoor Skydiving, try the zip line at Fly Linq, or drive supercars at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Sin City also has a bevy of famous restaurants. Notably, Vegas has the Top of the World Restaurant, which can rival Italy’s Grotta Palazzese. Like the Grotta Palazzese, the Top of the World Restaurant offers diners a scenic panorama, not of nature but of a magnificent and iconic cityscape.
Even staying in Las Vegas’ many amazing accommodation options is a treat in itself. The best of them, though, are the casino-resorts. These offer top-notch services with world-class facilities and amenities. Vegas has so many casino-resorts, and every one of them is worth checking out. But if you want the top ones, then here are Kick Ass Things’ recommendations:

The Cosmopolitan is a 3,027 room bastion of luxury right on The Strip. Each of its rooms is cozy and contemporary, with some even offering a balcony or terrace. But The Cosmo’s stars are its dining options, notably the highly regarded Wicked Spoon. Also getting consistently high marks from guests are David Chang’s Momofuku with its Asian classics, and Chef Jose Andreas’ China Poblano for its Mexican-Chinese cuisine. Aside from this the casino-resort has The Chandelier and the Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub — arguably two of Nevada’s best hangout spots.

The Bellagio exudes elegance and luxury and is at the top of most people’s bucket list Vegas venues. While it has an extensive casino floor, it is the poker room that truly sets The Bellagio apart from the others. The Live About listicle of Las Vegas’ best poker rooms has The Bellagio’s at number 1, and for good reason. All 7,000 square feet of Bobby’s Room oozes class. Not to mention it features the highest limit poker action in the world. Unsurprisingly it hosts some of the biggest poker tournaments on the planet. Aside from featuring well-known pros such as Daniel Negreanu and Jen Harman, these tournaments have ensured that playing poker in a casino has lost none of its prestige and popularity amidst stiff competition from its online counterparts. Online poker has become extremely popular since the early 2000s, as players can conveniently learn and play from their PC or mobile device. The online schools on partypoker show how players have the option of playing in different types of online tournaments, from Sit & Go contests to cash games. Even so many players still want to experience playing in the world’s top casinos, which is why so many come to The Bellagio when they visit Vegas.
The Venetian Resort
