Quick Look @ 5 High End Vegas Hotels

As someone who recently visited Vegas for the first time choosing a hotel was probably the most daunting decision. There are so many to chose from and they are all so different. So while I was in Vegas I took it upon myself to walk through as many of the hotels as possible and scope them out for you all. The result.. I separated the hotels into different price categories (this being the high end) and then created fact sheets about each hotel - I picked out things to include that even if you don't stay at these hotels there may be things that still interest you to go in and take a look around!

These are my top 5 hotels for the "Big Spenders"- or perfect for people who are going to Vegas for a special occasion like a Birthday, Wedding or Honeymoon etc. Don't get me wrong you can get really good deals for each of these hotels, but these are definitely at the higher end of the Vegas Hotel Scale. Some may argue that these are not the most "elite" hotels that Vegas has to offer - but I only wanted to include hotels that I had actually walked through during my time in Vegas.

* My most important tip for after you finally choose a hotel is that you check which building or tower that your are going to be in. The location of the room can "make or break" the overall feel of the hotel for you!

** Trip Advisor has a category called "Room Tips" which is perfect for figuring out how to pick a tower in Vegas.
