Las Vegas is more about glitzy hotels than hip hotels. Most hotels on the Strip are more amazing than hip, with erupting volcanos, elevators that rise at 45 degree angles, and live lions. Downtown Las Vegas hotels tend to be more like dives than hip hotels. But there are a few plasma screens and pool scenes to be found. Here are a few hip hotels in Las Vegas.
Rooms at The Hotel, in a separate tower connected to Mandalay Bay, are all suites, with sleek décor, three flat-screen televisions (one in the bathroom), and high-speed Internet. At night, rumjungle is the place to be seen, and during the warmer months there's an adults-only pool party at Moorea Beach Club
Rain and the Ghost Bar are must-see bars. The pool area also turns into a party called Skin after dark. Guest rooms here are pretty standard, with the exception of the "Real World" suite; next door, the Play Pen suites cater to bachelorette and bachelor parties with stripper poles, hardwood dance floors and a sound system.
The crowd skews young, rowdy and beautiful at this party hotel just off the Strip. Rooms have music videos on TV, French doors and Bose sound systems. Even the swimming pool has rock music piped underwater.
