Which Hotels Gets Highest Rating In Las Vegas?

What Las Vegas hotel rates the best among those on The Strip and in Downtown? To determine that question, this blogger took a look at a number of rating polls and reviews. asked that very question, and came up with a comprehensive results list with The Stardust Resort and Casino at the top of it. Of all of the hotels listed, and it's a large one, The Stardust has the largest number of "yes" answers to offset the negative responses. T

The Stardust's overall score is 8.40, followed by the following places on The Strip: The Palazzo, The Four Seasons, The Mirage Hotel, The MGM Grand Hotel, Bill's Gamblin Hall & Saloon, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Paris :as Vegas Resort & Casino, Bally's Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas, New York-New York Hotel and Casino, which round out the top of a long list.

These hotels round out the bottom:

The Circus Circus Hotel*Casino*Theme Park Westin Casuarina Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Quality Inn Hotel and Key Largo Casino

That's one take, but let's look at what says, especially since they report:

The world of Vegas-area casino hotels changes constantly. In the early 2000s, just about every resort was investing heavily in family-friendly accommodations and activities. Today, however, most places have refocused squarely on decadence and debauchery. No property exemplifies this transition better than TI. Once known as Treasure Island, it dropped its pirate theme to embrace a more sensual motif—one with scantily clad dancers gyrating upon the very same pirate ships once used for family-friendly shows.


So, if "decadence and debauchery" is what you seek, put TI at the top of your list. Otherwise, read on.

The Bellagio Tops Fodors.

Basically, Fodors sees Bellagio as an "old standard" that's not into the "decadence and debauchery" it associates TI with, and includes The Venetian, The Four Seasons, The Platinum Hotel, and The Green Valley Resort.

Another website that has a rate, albeit what appears to be an old one, is For what it's worth, the website has The Wynn at the top, followed by The Four Seasons, and The Bellagio, Mandalay Bay Resort, and The Venetian Resort, which it says is a "tribute to Italian opulence."

But, OK, you're probably saying "What does Yelp say?" The popular user review website system has The Four Seasons at the top with four of five stars followed by The Mandarin Oriental, The Venetian, Encore, and Wynn.

Overall, Vegas is what you make of it. But if you're coming in for the CES 2013, with all of the parties and events and happenings, the last thing you want is a bad hotel stay. With that, The Bellagio and The Four Seasons are the ones that appear in the most top-ten lists.

Stay tuned.
