We can't say enough about choosing one of these Las Vegas hotels located off The Las Vegas Strip if you fall into one of these common categories: If you seek a languid stay at a resort spa and golf destination; if you want to be near the hot casino action but are on a strict travel budget; or if you're on a family vacation. If any of these describes your travel profile, check out these Off Strip hotels in detail.
First, for the spa and golf set, you'll love the resorts found in Summerlin — a posh master-planned suburb located northwest of the Las Vegas Strip at the base of the Spring Mountains, adjacent to the Red Rock Canyon conservation area — or Lake Las Vegas — a manmade lake destination encircled by luxury resorts, championship golf and a European-style village — located due east of Las Vegas near Henderson. At either destination, you'll enjoy the spoils of Las Vegas excess with the tranquility and escape not easily attained down on The Strip.
For the budget traveler with a hankering for fun, look for Off-Strip hotels with an address Las Vegas Boulevard but not on it; you'll easily find these hotels pinpointed on the map below. You'll also find inexpensive, simple accommodations described with keywords such as Convention Center, Airport, or with "Station" in the title.
Finally, families traveling to Las Vegas will appreciate the accommodations in bedroom communities like Henderson and Boulder City. You'll find affordable room rates, proximity to kid-friendly restaurants, and convenient shopping. Perhaps most importantly, you'll find limited exposure to the kinds of larger-than-life advertisements targeted to adults-only for which Las Vegas is famous. Lastly, a stay in Henderson or Boulder City puts you that much closer to Grand Canyon West; you'll save about 20 minutes on the drive.
