1. The Venetian
Address – 3355 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, 89109
When you see the Venetian Resort in photographs, it looks simply magnificent. But it is not until you finally come here that you realize the true elegance of it all. The Venetian here in Las Vegas is the largest five-star hotel and resort complex in the whole world due to its position within the Sands Expo Convention Center and the Pallazzo Hotel and Casino Resort. Inside its grounds are a staggering 8,108 rooms or suites. Canals and gondolas give you the impression you are in Italy.
2. Treasure Island

The magical Treasure Island Hotel and Casino was opened in 1993 in one of the most expensive hotel complex projects in history. Within the grounds you can find pirate ship replicas, bars serving Bluebeard cocktails, and some of the finest bars and casinos Las Vegas has on offer.
3. Paris Hotel and Casino
Address – 3655 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, 89109
It’s almost as if they have shipped half of Paris over here to Las Vegas. If you never have the budget or desire to visit Europe or France, this is the next best thing. A crazy 541-foot-high replica of the Eiffel Tower sits prominently here in the complex, and they have even re-created the Arc de Triopmh. Also at the entrance to the hotel there is a mock version of the Louvre and Paris Opera House. Croissants and French delicacies are served within the restaurants and bars, so you really could be forgiven for thinking you are actually in France.
4. Luxor Hotel and Casino
Address – 3900 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, 89119
The distinctive shape of Luxor Hotel and Casino dominates the Vegas skyline. It’s an Egyptian pyramid. There are nine restaurants and bars on-site so you won’t go hungry or thirsty. The LAX Nightclub is the party hotspot, while the Playbar offers gaming with fine cocktails. There is a spa, an outdoor pool, and a business center.
5. Riviera (CLOSED)

The Riviera Hotel is officially now closed which is a shame, so you can’t book in but you can get there quick for a photo next to the famous bronzed ladies, as this place was a Vegas institution. It’s nice to pay homage to the elaborate complex that served the city so well for over 60 years.
So, good luck choosing your favorite themed hotel in Vegas, and safe travels!
