A legendary Vegas hotel with a legendary Vegas performer

Las Vegas grew up around the Stardust’s 62 tropical and desert acres on the north end of what became known as The Strip. Here, traditional Las Vegas still exists: a larger-than-life entertainer (Wayne Newton),a mahogany-paneled steakhouse, a softly-lit lounge offering musical acts, an elegant casino, and sundecks and pools to restore and refresh after all-night entertainment.

Location: Las Vegas Strip

Amenities at The Stardust Hotel

The tropical-garden pool complex includes two pools—one free-form and the other rectangular for lap swimming. Between them rises a large sandstone structure in a coconut-palm grove. Each side of the massive rock shelters a 10-person spa that’s always open for social soaking.

Insider tip: In addition to assisting commercial travelers with services and cellular phone rentals, the resort’s business center rents digital cameras to vacationers.
