Best Las Vegas Hotels and Walking 14 Miles Across the Las Vegas Strip

How Did I Land in Las Vegas?

In my role as a consultant, I'm immersed in the dynamic world of sales, collaborating directly with organizations to enhance their selling capabilities. Whether it's Sales Kickoff Events or intensive training seminars, my job often takes me on the road.

Over the past two years, I've had the privilege of traversing diverse destinations, some of which weren't initially on my personal bucket list. One such intriguing destination?

The vibrant city of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Las Vegas, a Fabulous Vacation Spot

Las Vegas, and even Nevada particularly, has never come to mind when planning a vacation. Somewhere in the back of my mind I pictured dirty casinos instead of rigid luxury. I can now advise that the Las Vegas strip could be a great spot for a vacation, even for a family, depending on the vibe you desire.

This famous city provides captivating night lights, endless options for entertainment, 24 hour services, unique food, and all out bigger attractions than you have ever seen.

For those who know me, they're aware that my favorite way to immerse myself in a new destination is by strolling through its streets and soaking in the local vibes.

During my time on the iconic Las Vegas Strip, I seized the opportunity to wander through several of the renowned hotels that contribute to the city's glittering skyline.

Can I Just Walk into Caesars Palace?

One cool thing about the hotels in Las Vegas is you can go into each of them, even if you are not staying there. All hotels have shops, casinos, restaurants, and shows you should go in and explore. It is even easy to get lost in some of these larger than life resorts.

Yes, you can walk around Caesars Palace, and many other famous Las Vegas resorts free of charge. Don't be fooled though. These large and beautiful resorts are designed to keep you inside, and spending as much money as possible.

During my time on the strip I clocked nearly 14 miles walking through the hotels. This may seem excessive, or even impossible, but these hotels are expansive and many contain 3,000+ rooms. I was lost in the Venetian for longer than I would care to admit.

The fun part about this experience though is that I was able to take notes about where to stay when I return to the Las Vegas Strip.

As with any journey, there were hotels that, regrettably, fell short of the glossy portrayals on their websites. Sometimes, reality doesn't align with our virtual expectations.

However, amidst the mixed bag of impressions, a few establishments emerged as delightful surprises, exceeding my expectations and leaving me in awe. Below are the hotels I found intriguing and why I would stay there when I return to Las Vegas.
