Love it or loathe it, Las Vegas’s sheer number of hotels, events and conferences makes it a frequent destination for many of us. And of course, it’s the party capital of the US. While some of the city’s most over-the-top accommodations are reserved for
high rollers and are by invitation only, there are still incredible suites with extravagant amenities that put some bigger cities’ offerings to shame. If you think the dining scene is only full of celebrity chefs and outposts of successful restaurants, think again. Many chefs view Las Vegas as the perfect place to go all-out and to be as innovative as they can, and several restaurants would be deserving of Michelin stars if the city had its own guide. So, if you’re in town, check into a fabulous suite, embrace the kitsch, dust off your party hat and go have the time of your life. You can do whatever you want here. This is Las Vegas, after all.
