Top 20 Hotels in the US

Writing about the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino yesterday got me thinking about whether or not the MGM was indeed the largest in the world. I had also heard that many of the largest hotels in the world are in Vegas. So I decided to check it out. Here is what I found for the top 20 hotels in the US (I couldn't find a world list):

20. Imperial Palace
Las Vegas
Right in the heart of the strip, the Imperial Palace has 2,635 guest rooms and suites.

19. Wynn Las Vegas
Las Vegas
On the old site of the Desert Inn, Howard Huges' last residence. The golf course behind the resort has been redesigned. Only hotel guests can play; No visitors. Green fees: $500 per round. 2,716 rooms. An additional tower has been designated as a separate, all-suite hotel called Encore, and will add another 2,300 rooms when construction is complete.

18. Bally's Casino Resort
Las Vegas
2,814 guest rooms and 300,000 square feet of meeting space.

12. Monte Carlo Hotel Casino
Las Vegas
A more affordable version of the Bellagio with 3,002 guest rooms.

Las Vegas
Caesar's made the list recently with the opening of the new spa tower. 3,349 guest rooms and suites.

Las Vegas
A great location, low rates, and 3,565 guest rooms and suites.

7. Circus Circus
Las Vegas
Loud but cheap, and with 3,774 rooms.

6. Bellagio
Las Vegas
For romance, spring for a fountain-view room, tune in the piped-in music on television, and watch the show from your window. Let everyone else jockey for a spot in the street. The most recent tower, opened in December 2004, brings the total to 3,993 guest rooms and suites.

5. Excalibur ("The Castle")
Las Vegas
A family-oriented fanasy hotel at the base of the Strip, with 4,008 affordable guest rooms and suites.

When The Palazzo opens with 3,025 rooms, The Venetian resort, with 7,074 hotel rooms and suites, will become the largest hotel complex in the world.

I would like to go to Las Vegas and play in a high roller casino but it’s an expensive thing to do, even more so when you live in the UK. I have to resort to playing a casino game online instead which lets me win the money but I miss out on the atmosphere, but still save £600 on the 14 hour flight. So until I win big all I’ll do is play online casino dreaming of Las Vegas.
