The Las Vegas Strip is jammed with most of the world’s largest hotels and that’s where most people want to stay in Las Vegas. That’s where most of the fun can be had, but prices on the Strip tend to be high and there are some interesting places off the Strip and Downtown as well.
Often you can get great deals by combining a cheap flight with a cheap hotel. This isn’t for everyone, but it’s definitely worth checking on the prices of these deals so you can compare the prices of booking individually if you normally do it that way.
