The Las Vegas Strip has many non-gaming hotels, believe it or not. Vegas may be America’s playground, but that doesn’t mean that everyone likes gambling or wants to stay in a hotel where you have to walk through a casino to get to your room. Maybe you’re coming for a convention or business and want to stay focused on the job at hand. Or, maybe you are just sensitive to smoking and looking to avoid the gaming floor altogether.

Fortunately, Vegas is also a place with options.

As you go through this list, you will see many great hotel options that are not part of a casino. Please note that some of these hotels are part of casino complexes (we will point out which ones are and are not part of casino complexes).

However, these hotels will never require you to step foot in a casino.

Families or those with long-term stays may like that all rooms have kitchenettes, including mini refrigerators, toasters, microwaves, sinks, and coffeemakers.

6. Hilton Grand Vacations Club Elara Center Strip

Location: 80 East Harmon Ave. (Part of Planet Hollywood complex)

Opened in 2012, The Hilton Grand Vacations Club Elara is the newest property on our list. It functions like a traditional hotel and timeshare and is connected to Planet Hollywood via The Miracle Mile mall.

Notable Amenities

Families or those with long-term stays may also appreciate that all rooms have kitchenettes, including mini-refrigerators, toasters, microwaves, sinks, and coffeemakers. Some rooms even have washers/dryers.

The property has:

  • Lobby bar
  • Starbucks
  • Large pool deck with cabanas and a poolside bar
  • Meeting space for private events

5. The Signature at MGM Grand

Location: 145 East Harmon Ave. (Part of the MGM Grand complex)

Located on the far northeast side of the larger MGM property, The Signature at MGM Grand is a condo complex. With its first tower opening in 2006, the property has its own valet and drop-off area separate from MGM Grand (do not get dropped off at MGM Grand if you are staying here).

Notable Amenities

With all rooms as suites, each 550-square-foot standard suite includes a dedicated sitting area with a full kitchenette, a king-sized bed with upscale linens, and a whirlpool spa tub.

All rooms have kitchenettes, including stoves, mini-refrigerators, microwaves, and sinks.

This particular non-gaming portion of the property offers the following:

  • Quick service breakfast/lunch dining outlet
  • Lobby bar
  • Starbucks
  • Each tower has its own dedicated pool with access to MGM Grand’s pool

There is no spa at The Signature.

Although one remains entirely indoors, visitors should know that The Signature is at least a six-minute walk from the MGM Grand’s casino and restaurants.

PREMIER TIP: This property is part of the Marriott Bonvoy program.

4. Trump International Hotel Las Vegas

Location: 2000 Fashion Show Dr. Near the Fashion Show Mall

Opened in 2006, The Trump International Hotel Las Vegas is a condo building that functions as a hotel located a few hundred feet from the Strip–just behind the Fashion Show Mall and a seven to ten-minute walk from Wynn and Palazzo. We would have rated the Trump Hotel higher if it were closer to Wynn/Palazzo.

The lobby has grandiose decor with exquisite chandeliers and gold trimming.

There is a mix of studio-size, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom suites. All rooms can be rented, since the hotel rooms have recently been renovated. Each room has a large marble bathroom.

Notable Amenities

Like the previous casino-less hotels, these rooms have kitchenettes with stoves, stainless steel refrigerators, microwaves, sinks, and coffeemakers. The concierge also has games for kids to borrow during their stay.

The property has a restaurant and a bar in the lobby, which serves several signature cocktails. On the third level, there is a fairly simple and tranquil pool deck (by Vegas standards).

PREMIER TIP: There is a complimentary shuttle to Wynn and Caesars’ Palace.

3. Waldorf Astoria

Location: 3752 Las Vegas Blvd. South Near The Aria

Originally The Mandarin when it opened in 2009, the luxurious Waldorf Astoria is in a building with hotel rooms on the bottom floors and condo units on the top floors.

Because you will likely be staying in a hotel room (and not a timeshare or condo), please be aware that the standard rooms, at 500 square feet, will still be large but smaller than the other hotels on this list.

Notable Amenities

The property has a restaurant, tea lounge, and bar on the 23rd floor. It also has a luxury spa and pool deck with cabanas on the eighth floor. The hotel’s fitness center offers classes for those looking to keep up their exercise regime.

PREMIER TIP: The hotel bar on the 23rd floor is one of our favorite fancy bars in all of Las Vegas, and is worth going especially on date night.

2. Vdara

Location:  2600 West Harmon Ave. Near The Aria

Opened in 2009, the Vdara is a hidden gem in Las Vegas because of its great rooms, contemporary feel, and fantastic location. Although not as fancy as The Waldorf Astoria, it offers consistently better value for money.

Although originally envisioned as a condo-hotel building, the property effectively operates as a hotel now. The Vdara is located about a two-minute walk outside to Aria and a two-minute walk indoors to both The Bellagio and Cosmopolitan.

Notable Amenities

Those with long-term stays or families on vacation may like that all the rooms come with pull-out sofas, kitchenettes including stoves, mini or full-size refrigerators, microwaves, and sinks. Some rooms have washer/dryers.

Other amenities include:

  • Lobby bar,
  • Small grab-and-go marketplace
  • Juice bar
  • Starbucks
  • Dedicated pool with cabanas

Guests also have access to Aria’s pool.

PREMIER TIP:  Vdara is part of the Marriott Bonvoy program.

1. The Four Seasons

Location: 3960 South Las Vegas Blvd. (Part of Mandalay Bay complex)

We rate the Four Seasons Las Vegas as The Strip’s number one non-gaming hotel.

The non-smoking Five Diamond Four Seasons Las Vegas is part of the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino complex. The Four Seasons’ rooms are on the top floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The hotel has a completely separate valet entrance and its own restaurant, bar, spa, and pool.

The Four Seasons has 38,000 square feet of event space, including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom, and regularly hosts meetings, conferences, and weddings.

Standard rooms are oversized by Vegas standards at 500 to 560 square feet.

Notable Amenities

The 424-room Four Seasons is also a great option for families, as it has access to its top pool. The “Family for All Seasons” program makes kids feel extra welcome, with access to games, books, and other goodies during their stay.

PREMIER TIP: For those considering an ultra-luxury experience, in addition to The Four Seasons, we also recommend a handful of high-end hotels with separate lobbies within casino complexes, including The Wynn Tower SuitesEncore Tower Suites, and Aria Sky Suites.

Vegas for Non-Gamers

People visit Las Vegas for all sorts of reasons, and many of those reasons do not involve gambling. Las Vegas can be a great place to do business, attend a convention, attend a wedding, attend a concert, or go on vacation with family.

In addition to the list above, several residential towers are on or near the Strip, such as the Veer Towers, Sky, Palms Place, Panorama Towers, and The Martin. Some of these properties may have rentals on popular vacation websites.

If you don’t want to stay at a casino, we hope we helped you make a more informed decision on where to stay during your next trip.
