I was in Las Vegas this week for a convention and had the opportunity to stay at another hotel at Resorts World. I had previously stayed at Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts (full review here) and was excited to check out the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World as well. Resorts World opened in summer 2021. It features a mall, casino, theater, a big selection of restaurants and bars, a spa, and seven pools for three hotels: Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World, Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World, and Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts. The property had been the Stardust Resort and Casino until 2007 when the hotel was imploded. The current resort cost $4.3 billion and is a gorgeous place to visit or stay.
Anthony’s Take: The hotel is conveniently located at the north end of the Strip near The Wynn and The Venetian. It provides everything you could need for a great weekend getaway including tons of restaurants and a hawker-center-style food court, a casino, and well-appointed rooms and suites. The Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World is the least expensive of the three hotels, but it’s still well designed and feels luxurious in that it shares common areas and amenities with the other hotels.
I was booked into a Partial Strip View Deluxe Room – 2 Queen Beds by my company for a two-night stay. I was on a convention rate, but was recognized as a Gold member. Cash rates for the hotel range between $94 and $499 per night for standard rooms depending on the dates. If you’re looking to redeem Hilton points, you’ll spend between 36,000 and 70,000 for a room.
Transportation to/from the Hotel
I took a taxi from Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport (LAS) to the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World. The approximately 4.4-mile trip lasted around 25 minutes and cost $28 plus tax and tip. Las Vegas taxis are now metered by zone. I love this as many drivers used to scam passengers by taking them out of the way to run up the meter. I took an Uber Premier to the airport when returning home and that was around 20 minutes and cost $20.
As mentioned the hotel is located on the north end of the strip. It’s a bit quieter over here versus the other end near Mandalay Bay. You’re a short walk from the Wynn, Venetian, and several other casinos as well as a quick ride to anything else you’ll want to see.
I arrived at the hotel around 5:30 PM. While I tried to do a mobile check-in, the app kept rejecting it and I ended up having to go to the desk. I had the same issue when staying at Crockfords. There was no line and the agent was friendly. I asked about an upgrade and was told none were available. I also requested a room with one king bed, but was told that I would need to wait a few hours for it to be ready. I was at the hotel a few hours before check-in time and needed to get to a meeting, so I took the room with two beds. I did not need a late checkout, so I did not ask.
The lobby is elegant and open. It does not offer seating or a bar like the lobby at Crockfords.
Behind the check-in desk there were several Marilyn Monroe prints. There are 46 total Warhol works throughout Resorts World.
The elevators are right off of the lobby and they were quick and efficient. Each floor has a phone next to the elevators.
The luxe hallways feature shades of blue, cream, and gold throughout.
Partial Strip View Deluxe Room – 2 Queen Beds (59-372)
There are 1,774 rooms and suites at the hotel.
The bathroom has a huge mirror, a single vanity, a spacious shower, and toilet.
The shower had good water pressure and plenty of room.
The toiletries were in pumps on the wall. They are Byredo Mojave Ghost brand. This brand is sold at Neiman Marcus and I liked the scent.
There was no bar soap in the room. Hand wash and body lotion were also in pumps by the sink.
The toilet was spaced well away from the vanity and shower. I hate when toilets butt up against either.
There was a closet next to the bathroom. It held a robe, luggage rack, iron, and ironing board.
Just past the closet was the bedroom with two queen-sized beds, a table and chair, and a bench.
The table worked well for me to take Zoom calls in the morning.
Next to the bench was a vanity with a TV, minibar, and snacks for sale.
The refrigerator had two parts. The first was filled with beverages for sale and the second was empty so that you could store your own. I love when hotels are thoughtful like this as I rarely buy things from the minibar and usually grab my own drinks at a drugstore, supermarket, or even in the hotel (they’re still cheaper than in room). The room also has a safe (sorry I did not snap a pic).
Above the refrigerator there were some snacks, water, and wine for sale.
Next to these, you’ll find an ice bucket and glasses. There was no coffeemaker in the room.
Public Areas & Amenities
Most amenities and common areas are shared with the other two hotels. There is a fitness center, Awana Spa, seven pools on a five-acre pool deck (the largest in Las Vegas), a casino, a theater, shopping, and lots of restaurants and bars. I did not have the chance to use the spa or fitness center and it was still too cold for the pool.
One of the things that I love about Resorts World is the modern art that you can find throughout the complex.
Overall Impression: Resorts World is a beautiful destination and offers something for everyone. I prefer Crockfords’ understated elegance to the Hilton, which was more upscale than luxury. I’ll definitely be staying at Resorts World again and want to try the Conrad.
