The Best Hotels in North Las Vegas: Three Amazing Stays
While the Strip has plenty of places to stay in, not everyone wants that experience. That's where these 3 North Las Vegas hotels come into play.
Though it's completely understandable why people focus so heavily on the Strip when referring to Las Vegas, the city is far larger than 5 mile stretch of road, casinos, and people. In fact, Las Vegas covers quite an expansive area with unique little nuggets of fun and worthwhile exploration. One such place is North Las Vegas, an area that is, as you probably guessed, a bit north of the actual city of Las Vegas.
North Las Vegas doesn't get too much attention, but it has its own offerings that shouldn't be ignored. Among them are these three hotels, that, though they're not as expansive as a Sin City resort, hold their own to provide exemplary service and incredibly high levels of comfort. These hotels are also decent alternatives to the traveler that either can't afford to stay on the Strip or wants to get a different view of Las Vegas entirely.
1. SpringHill Suites
It's a far cry from the oversized resorts on the Strip, but the SpringHill's size is actually one of its finer points. Being smaller than your usual combined hotel and casino, SpringHill is able to put more care into its property, allowing each guests to enjoy a luxurious stay off of the Strip without feeling like they're miles away from the real action of the city.
SpringHill Suites offers standard amenities of any high-end Marriott property, including plush bedding that will make you want to throw out your bed at home. A free kitchenette ensures you won't have to eat out every night and an on-site fitness center is great for those nights you decide to anyway.
One of SpringHill's finer points is its proximity to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Should you decide to leave the comfort of your room, you're a short drive away from one of Las Vegas' major attractions, a speedway that specializes in fast-paced action. You may not have a casino to escape to at SpringHill, but the races give you something far more engaging to spend your time on.
2. Cannery Casino & Hotel
When you can't—or simply don't want—to stay on the Strip, there are many different resources you can utilize to get that Las Vegas experience. One of them is the North Las Vegas hotel, the Cannery. This large space is filled with all the great offerings of a classy hotel with the exciting debauchery of a casino.
A large casino floor is likely the Cannery's biggest driving factor, with table games and slot machines as far as the eye can see. When you want to get sucked into the sinful side of Las Vegas, there's no better place to be than on the grounds of a glamorous casino. From craps to video poker, the Cannery delivers on all types of games.
Separate from the casino is a luxurious hotel that doesn't play games. There's no need to have to decide what kind of room you want to stay in as the Cannery keeps the selection to a minimum. A queen or king sized bed is the centerpiece of a truly luxurious stay, complete with beautiful views of the Las Vegas Strip and the valley.
3. Aliante Casino, Hotel & Spa
Aliante is a true slice of Sin City set several miles off of the Las Vegas Strip. It's size and offerings are everything you'd expect from a resort on Las Vegas Blvd, but it comes with the added benefit of not carrying the same pricing scheme.
Aliante Casino, Hotel & Spa houses a plethora of entertainment in the form of concerts and live shows, a movie theater, and a large casino floor. It doesn't stop there, though, as travelers during the warmer months also get to take advantage of the resort-styled pool, complete with rentable cabanas and lounge chairs.
The real draw of the Aliante is the rooms. From a Deluxe Queen to a Presidential Suite, four different room types guarantee a place to stay for all walks of life. Where the Deluxe Queen is perfect for casual travelers looking for the standard in Las Vegas luxury, rooms like the Executive, Ambassador, and Presidential Suites offer multi-room spaces, perfect for a group of travelers. Each suite even comes with its own entertainment space, ensuring you can bring the party back to your hotel should the need arise.
Though there are plenty of places to eat in the area, Aliante makes it so you never have to leave. Eateries like The The Salted Lime, MRKT, FARM, and a food court filled with faster dining options like Johnny Rockets help turn Aliante into an all-inclusive resort, where the only reason to step outside is to get a breath of fresh desert air.
