The Best Hotels in Las Vegas For Couples

Whether celebrating an anniversary, engagement, wedding or just a random weekend getaway, Las Vegas is the perfect mix of romance and excitement.

Las Vegas is known for its debauchery and an attitude of “what happens here, stays here,” which also happens to be the theme of the destination’s global marketing campaign. Yet Sin City has a soft side too. It’s a place of intimacy and romance—at least for those looking for it.

My wife and I met, got married and bought a home in Las Vegas. We even shared our first kiss on the Strip (specifically on the outdoor patio of Skyfall Lounge, on the 64th floor of the Delano hotel). To this day, we refer to Las Vegas as “our city” and while we consider it an amazing place to live, we know it’s also a wonderful destination for the millions who visit each year.

Many of those tourists are here for trade shows and bachelor parties, but more than a few couples work their way into the mix. Whether celebrating an anniversary, engagement, wedding or just a random weekend getaway, Las Vegas is the perfect mix of romance and excitement.

Play your cards right by picking the right hotel. Fortunately, Vegas has something for everybody. Pick your poison – slots, spas, swimming pools or all-of-the-above? Choose one of these hotels in Las Vegas and you’ll have a romantic getaway to remember.

Revel in sophistication at the Wynn

If you called the Wynn the best overall hotel in Las Vegas, you’d be met with few arguments – the property has it all. Grab your significant other and party late into the night at one of the two nightclubs on property—the indulgent XS or the poolside Encore Beach Club. The spa was recently renovated with a bold, seductive look to highlight art-like decor and dark colors, revealed by a lantern-lined corridor. Couples can escape there for hours.

Most of the restaurants are original in-house concepts, which is rare for the Strip. Mizumi, SW Steakhouse, Lakeside and Costa di Mare all have patio seating next to large-scale water features, bringing together the right combination of cuisine and scenery for a perfect date night. Even walking through the lobby has its charm, with colorful floral sculptures.

Rooms are divided between the main Wynn tower and the slightly newer Encore tower. Either way, accommodations come with a bright modern design, comfortable beds and floor-to-ceiling windows that show off sweeping views of the Strip or the hotel’s historic golf course. High rollers will love splurging on the multi-level duplex penthouses or secluded fairway villas, which come with private patios and plunge pools on the ground level. However, even the most basic rooms have ample room and bedside digital tablets to control lights, curtains and TVs.

Take a trip to Old World Italy at the Venetian

The name says it all – the Venetian models itself after the timeless culture and architecture of Venice, Italy. The theme is reflected in Renaissance-inspired murals in the lobby, the shops and architecture of St. Mark’s Square and the gondolas that float through the waterways of the Grand Canal Shoppes. The rides are more about kitsch than romance, but still a good excuse to snuggle up with someone special.

For high-end dining, Wolfgang Puck’s Cut is hard to beat. However, Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse has one of the best whiskey lists in the entire country. The sprawling pool deck was recently given a welcome renovation, but couples will want to book a cabana at the Aquatic Club, a tucked-away adults-only area with crisp cocktails and lounge beats. When night falls, grab a drink at one of three sophisticated cocktail bars – Rosina is all about the classics, the Dorsey features modern recipes and Electra is more playful and inventive.

Each room at the Venetian and sister Palazzo tower follows an all-suites format, with timeless decor and added square footage. Even the least expensive accommodations have sunken living rooms. Between marble floors and large walk-in showers, the bathrooms are among the best on the Strip. For further relaxation, book a couples massage at the Canyon Ranch Spa or work up a sweat at the fitness center, which has a two-story climbing wall.

Breathe in the fresh air at the Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan is stylish, contemporary and packs a lot of action into a relatively small footprint on the Las Vegas Strip. Singles will love the vibrant social scene at STK or Marquee nightclub, but couples will prefer the intimacy of a cozy booth while dining at Zuma, Beauty & Essex or Milos Estiatorio. However, é by José Andrés is a small restaurant-within-a-restaurant at Jaleo that makes dining an event while taking gastronomy to a new level.

Even the shops have a modern edge – men can get suited up at Stitched, while the ladies enjoy the best of Hollywood fashion at Rent the Runway. Dress your best and rendezvous at the Chandelier, a three-level cocktail lounge surrounded in crystals.

The rooms feel designed with couples in mind, and are regularly updated with ultra-modern furnishings and artwork. Walk-in showers lead directly to a built-in bathtub near the window.

Since the Cosmopolitan was initially planned as a condo development, the hotel is the only high-rise on the Strip with open-air balconies. Request a room on the north side of the tower for views of the High Roller Wheel, Bellagio fountains and other landmarks. It’s such an impressive sight, you could snuggle up with your significant other and spend hours on the outdoor furniture.

Skip the Strip with a night at The M

The M Resort in southwest Henderson offers a greater bang for your buck than most of the hotels you’ll find on the Strip. It’s an impressive property with sharp, sleek designs and an easy atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with Strip or mountain views. However, the sense of escapism is best felt in the expansive outdoor pool area, where guests can sunbathe on wet deck lounge chairs and book a cabana at Daydream, a day club that’s far less congested and rowdy than its counterparts on the Strip.

Couples will enjoy sharing a 24-ounce bone-in ribeye at Anthony’s Steakhouse or a bottle at the Hostile Grape wine bar. The Studio B buffet is known as one of the best in Vegas, especially with the weekend lineup of fresh seafood. The top spot for a romantic night is 16, a lounge on the 16th floor with large windows that gaze out toward the Strip in the distance. The M Resort is close to SpeedVegas, a racetrack where guests can hop behind the wheel of an exotic car, and the Lion Habitat Ranch, home to numerous big cats and Ozzie the giraffe.

Step up your game at the Cromwell

With less than 200 rooms, the Cromwell is the most stylish and sexy boutique hotel on the Strip. Rooms tend to have a contemporary French design with subtle steampunk elements and hardwood floors. The suites mix in quirky decorations like bookshelves, chess sets and even a pinball machine. The showers have an optional two-way glass mirror effect, that will spice up any couples getaway.

For such a small hotel, the Cromwell has lots of perks. The drinks may be pricey at Bound cocktail bar, but you can drink $2 beers and martinis during the all-day happy hour at Interlude lounge. The rooftop pool, which hosts Drai’s Nightclub and Beach Club, has some of the best views anywhere on the Strip. Book a cabana with its own plunge pool while DJs pump out beats in the background. Night owls will be eager to stay up all night at Drai’s Afterhours, a reclusive basement lounge with plush, deep red decor.

For dinner, book a reservation at Giada (the first restaurant by celebrity chef Giada de Laurentiis) with large windows that open up wide and overlook the Bellagio fountains across the street. If you’re the kind of couple that comes to Vegas to gamble, the Cromwell casino has some of the best gaming conditions on the Strip.

Retreat from the Strip at Green Valley Ranch

Sometimes the best way for a couple to relax in Las Vegas is by keeping a comfortable distance from the chaos of the Strip. Green Valley Ranch in Henderson has timeless Tuscan-style architecture and an extensive backyard pool deck with a vineyard, cabanas and numerous lounge areas. The pool is just steps from a stand-alone spa, where couples can book massages and other beauty treatments. Many of the rooms have their own balconies that overlook the pool deck.

With a location in the southeast corner of the valley, Green Valley Ranch gives guests a head start on heading out to Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and other destinations near Boulder City. If you prefer to stay close to the hotel, enjoy a walk in the District outdoor shopping plaza or munch on a slice from Pizza Rock, one of the best pizza joints in not just Henderson, but all of Las Vegas.

Take a journey to Paris Las Vegas

The Paris Las Vegas resort takes inspiration from France’s most famous city, offering endless opportunities for romance. Begin with the half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower, which rises up through the casino and into the sky as a dominating presence in the Vegas skyline. Soak in the scenery from the 460-foot-high viewing deck or enjoy dinner at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, surrounded by panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. A more casual alternative is Mon Ami Gabi, which offers traditional French cuisine with an American touch. The patio, just inches off the sidewalks of the Strip, is an infamous spot for people watching.

The rooms mix a  contemporary flair with fun art-deco touches. Go the extra mile on your romantic getaway by booking the chateau-like Napoleon Suite, which comes with its own baby grand piano. Even if you don’t know how to play, it’s worth it for the atmosphere alone. The Soleil pool deck skips a day club party scene in favor of a more quiet, dignified mood for sipping on champagne and enjoying the sunshine.

Show off a saucy side at the Artisan

Ready for something different? The Artisan is an intimate adults-only boutique hotel that plays up a sexy theme with eclectic artwork throughout each of its 64 guest rooms—none of which are exactly alike. With a dark and seductive vibe, the Artisan isn’t for everyone, but couples with a mischievous side and an appetite for nightlife will enjoy the mid-century style and social energy. The lounge area, bar and tapas restaurant are lively hangouts, but the energy truly picks up late at night since the Artisan is a popular after-hours spot for when the action cools down at the nightclubs around town. Stick around for a while and you’re bound to meet a few new friends.

The Artisan occupies its own quiet corner near the Industrial Corridor, west of the Strip’s north end and well within easy driving distance to popular Vegas attractions. Parking is valet-only, but pulling up to the porte cochere is a nice way to arrive in Hollywood style. The hotel’s saucy side is on full display at the pool deck, where women are allowed to sunbathe topless. If you’d like to see even more skin, the Artisan is just steps away from a few notable strip clubs, including Floyd Mayweather’s Girl Collection. Couples who wander in tend to get extra special attention from the performers.
