The 12 Best Hotels and Suites in Las Vegas



The recipient of more Forbes Five Star awards than any other casino resort in the world, Encore and its partner hotel Wynn have made an impressive impact on the Las Vegas Strip since their opening in 2008 and 2003 respectively.

On the site of the former Desert Inn, Encore offers a modern and upscale atmosphere with some of the best clubs and restaurants on the Strip. Dine on mouthwatering steaks prepared by Chef Mark LoRusso at Botero, sip on a $10,000 cocktail at chic nightclub XS or relax at the Forbes Five Star Spa. Encore may only have opened its doors relatively recently, but the luxury and splendor on offer rivals even the most established Vegas hotels.


Why we love it: Occupying two entire floors of the Encore, the Duplex is a three-bedroom modern residence commanding magnificent views from its 20 foot windows over the Las Vegas Strip. A private elevator whisks you up to the suite, where a sophisticated neutral décor, with many walls covered in mohair, is complemented by an array of golden fixtures and vibrant colors from the artwork. A separate entrance and pantry for the butler guarantees preparations and catering can be carried out privately, without disturbing guests. Extras include a wet bar, luxurious 720-thread count linens and a whole host of electronics from Sony, Sharp and Fisher.
