When it comes to hotel rooms, there is no shortage in Las Vegas. In fact, it is often the resorts themselves that are the attractions … and for good reason. These aren’t your average hotels. They have wild themes (think Luxor and Paris), huge casino floors, dozens of restaurants and attractions to keep visitors busy for days on end.

Considering the fact that the hotels draw travelers to Las Vegas, it’s probably no surprise that the city also has some of the largest hotels in the world. Of the many accommodations in Sin City, here are the seven largest hotels in Las Vegas.

MGM Grand

Number of rooms: 5,690

The MGM Grand encompasses a wide array of standard suites and luxurious accommodations known as the SKYLOFTS. When it opened in 1993, the resort was the largest in the world. The casino is nothing to sneeze over either. At 171,500 square feet, MGM Grand’s casino has more gaming space than any other property in Clark County. Of course, the property doesn’t stop there. Nearly two dozen restaurants, nightclubs and entertainment options can also be found at MGM Grand.

Luxor

Number of rooms: 4,408

The size of Luxor Las Vegas is deceiving, especially when compared to some of the highrises on the Las Vegas Strip, but when you consider the fact that many of Luxor’s hotel rooms are housed in two towers separate from the pyramid, it makes a bit more sense. Luxor is a hotspot for late night entertainment with several lounges, adult-oriented shows and nightclubs. It is also home to two of the most popular educational attractions on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Mandalay Bay (including THEhotel)

Number of rooms: 4,341

When considered separately, Mandalay Bay has 3,223 rooms and THEhotel has 1,118, but together these two joined properties make up the third largest hotel in Las Vegas. Though not themed like many other Las Vegas hotels, Mandalay Bay attracts lots of visitors simply because of its convention space and arena. The resort also has a massive gaming area, several noteworthy restaurants and North America’s only predator-based aquarium.

The Venetian

Number of rooms: 4,027

This classy, 5-star Las Vegas hotel has been impressing crowds since it opened in 1999. Most people take the time to explore The Venetian for its Grand Canal Shoppes, which wind through a realistically depicted Venice complete with street performers in St. Mark’s Square and singing gondoliers. Also noteworthy are the award-winning restaurants and a variety of production shows. The Venetian’s sister hotel, The Palazzo, is also a large hotel with 3,443 rooms.

Excalibur


Number of rooms: 4,008

Even those who play have to sleep eventually. Excalibur isn’t known for its rooms (though it has a lot of them). Rather, this medieval-themed resort is primarily about fun and games. This property is particularly family friendly with minimal nightlife but plentiful arcade and midway games as well as a show that requires people to eat with their fingers. Luckily for families, this is also one of the most affordable hotel options on the Las Vegas Strip.

ARIA

Number of rooms: 4,004

One of the newer hotels in Las Vegas, ARIA is part of CityCenter, a conglomeration of hotels and shops in the heart of the Strip. The property is classy with several bars and lounges as well as a nightclub, Haze. The resort also has more than a dozen restaurants and is home to one of several Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas.

Bellagio

Number of rooms: 3,993

Perhaps one of the most famous Las Vegas hotels, the Bellagio is both luxurious and fun. Few people enjoy a visit to Las Vegas without spending time scoping out the Bellagio Fountains. Of course, in addition to this famous free attraction (and the Bellagio Conservatory), there are also dozens of award-winning restaurants, plenty of nightlife options and a large casino floor. Cultural enthusiasts will want to check out the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art.
