Best Las Vegas Hotels for your 20s, 30s, 40s and Beyond


Your life-stage influences the Las Vegas hotel you choose. For example, if you’re in your 20s you may want to stay at a party hotel, while someone in their 40s may want to stay somewhere more relaxing.

Who you’re bringing, your budget, and the hotel amenities, are among the factors to consider when picking a hotel. In this post, we’ll take a look at which Las Vegas hotels are the best fit for every age group – and how much they are going to cost.

Best Las Vegas Hotels for your 20s

When you’re in your 20s, you’re likely going to want to stay at one of the many exciting party hotels on the Strip. These hotels cater to a younger crowd and often have a nightclub or pool party. Whether it’s your 21st birthday or your best friend’s bachelor party, these are the best Las Vegas hotels for your 20s.

Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan is one of the most popular hotels on the Strip, and it usually draws a younger crowd. It’s a 5-star resort, and almost every room is equipped with a walk-out balcony. The Cosmopolitan is home to several popular restaurants, like Eggslut and STK.

You’ll also find a multitude of bars, nightclubs and pool parties on the property. Marquee Dayclub and Marquee Nightclub are among the best nightclub and pool party combinations in the city.

  • Location: Center of the Strip
  • Price: High ($150-$250/night)

Wynn or Encore

The Wynn and Encore are sister hotels located on the north end of the Strip. Both are 5-star resorts that feature a number of luxury amenities including, a spa, golf course, restaurants, a casino, a shopping center, a nightclub and a pool party.

Ultimately, the nightclub and pool party are what make the Encore an excellent choice for anyone in their 20s. XS Nightclub has been voted the number one club in Vegas several times, and Encore Beach is widely regarded as Sin City’s best pool party. You can’t go wrong at either hotel.

  • Location: North end of the Strip
  • Price: High ($250-$300/night)

LINQ

The LINQ is one of the best party hotels for anyone on a budget. It’s located directly in the center of the Strip, right across the street from Caesars Palace and next door to the Cromwell, giving you easy access to the nightclubs at both resorts. You’ll also be right next to the Flamingo Go Pool Dayclub.

Although you have the opportunity to try out the nightlife venues at other hotels, you should still visit the LINQ’s on-site bars. One of the bars on the property, O’Sheas, hosts daily beer pong tournaments. And while the LINQ’s pool isn’t considered an official “pool party”, it still gets pretty wild.

  • Price: Low ($50-$150/night)
Palazzo Las Vegas

Best Las Vegas Hotels for your 30s

Many adults are still looking to party in their 30s but may want a hotel that offers a place to unwind as well. These hotels provide both. You’ll find a delicate balance of entertainment and relaxation at these infamous Las Vegas properties.

Caesars

Caesars Palace is a well-known property found in the center of the Strip. There’s a good mix of attractions at Caesars including, a shopping center, shows, fine-dining restaurants and a spa. Then you have the Garden of the God’s Pool Oasis, which is one of the best resort pools on the Strip. You’ll truly find a diverse assortment of things to do at Caesars.

If you ever have the urge to party, you don’t have to go very far to do it. Caesars isn’t necessarily known as a party hotel, but it’s home to one of the biggest nightclubs in Las Vegas (Omnia Nightclub). Even if you don’t hit the club, there are a number of terrific bars spread throughout the casino.

  • Location: Center of the Strip
  • Price: Medium-High ($200-$250/night)

Venetian or Palazzo

The Venetian and Palazzo are both luxury hotels located in the north-central part of the Las Vegas Strip. The hotels are connected and share amenities, so it doesn’t really matter which one you stay at. What is important is the entertainment offered at this wonderful resort.

The Venetian offers the perfect combination of luxury and entertainment for anyone in their 30s (or really any age!). It has a shopping mall, a spa, numerous restaurants, plus a small nightclub and dayclub. The clubs (both called Tao) are small intimate venues perfect for anyone looking to party but not get bumped around in a huge mega-club.

  • Location: Center/North end of the Strip
  • Price: High ($200-$300/night)

Treasure Island

Treasure Island is a superb option for anyone on a budget. It’s located directly across the street from the Venetian, so you can still get access to the luxury entertainment over there. However, Treasure Island does have its own spa, pool, casino, shows and bars.

Las Vegas Bars and Clubs for Older ...
Las Vegas Bars and Clubs for Older Crowds

The two main bars on the property, Gilley’s Saloon and Senor Frogs, are perfect for anyone in their 20s, 30s, or 40s. Both bars are super laid back and get surprisingly busy for hotel bars. Also, Fashion Show Mall is only a 5-minute walk from the front of the hotel, giving you quick access to one of the best shopping malls on the Strip.

Bellagio Las Vegas

Best Las Vegs Hotels for your 40s

When most people hit their 40s, the party slows down just a bit. Rest and relaxation become more of a priority. You still have a couple of drinks at the bar, but good shows, excellent food, and winning on the casino floor are of greater importance.

Bellagio

The Bellagio is one of the most acclaimed hotels in Las Vegas. Everything on the property is exceptional, from the Fountains and Botanical Gardens out front to the massive pools and spas in the back. You can expect first-class service from the Bellagio in all regards.

The casino at the Bellagio is widely considered to be the best in Las Vegas, especially for poker. There are no nightclubs on the property, but they do offer some tremendous restaurants and shows including, “O” by Cirque du Soleil. This is ideal for anyone in their 40s.

  • Location: Center of the Strip
  • Price: High ($250-$300/night)

Vdara

If you’re looking for a quiet hotel where you can really sit back and relax, look no further than Vdara. Vdara is one of the few hotels on the Strip that doesn’t have a casino, so you don’t have to worry about it getting too busy. There are also no nightclubs, so noise should not be a concern.

Vdara does have an award-winning spa on the property, along with a quiet hotel pool. If you do choose to do some gambling, both The Cosmopolitan and Aria are less than a 5-minute walk away. The Shops at Crystals are also right around the corner to handle all your luxury shopping needs.

  • Location: Center of the Strip

Park MGM

The Park MGM is an affordable hotel tucked away on the south end of the Strip. The atmosphere is a bit more subdued compared to some of the neighboring hotels however, there’s still plenty of entertainment offered at Park MGM. The T-Mobile Arena next door hosts everything from concerts to live sporting events.

The Park MGM also has a full casino, restaurants, several pools and a small nightclub. Park MGM’s nightclub (called On The Record) is designed like a large speakeasy bar with a retro vibe, playing a mix of classic songs from every era. You can party here without getting bumped around on a loud dance floor, which is perfect for anyone in their 40s

  • Location: South end of the Strip
  • Price: Low ($75-$150/night)

If you’re between the ages of 30 and 40, I recommend you check out this article. In that post, I cover a few more hotel options for people ages 30-40 based on the amenities at each resort.

Mandalay Bay Las Vegas

Best Las Vegas hotels for your 50s and Beyond

Once you hit your 50s, the chances are good that you’re going to leave the nightclubs are bars behind (for the most part!). However, that doesn’t mean Las Vegas is any less fun. Many resorts offer huge discounts to guests over the age of 50.

Paris

Paris is a French-style resort located in the center of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s easy to spot since it has a huge Eiffel Tower replica out front. Many of the hotel rooms at Paris, and one of the restaurants, overlook the Bellagio Fountains across the street. As an added bonus, anyone over the age of 50 gets a 30% discount at all Caesars Entertainment Properties, including Paris.

Paris is perfect for middle-aged adults looking to relax. The casino doesn’t have too much foot traffic, and the hotel pool is relatively quiet. The resort has a spa and a bunch of excellent restaurants. Paris does have a nightclub however, it’s very small and relatively tame compared to other clubs.

  • Location: Center of the Strip
  • Price: Medium ($75-$200/night)

Mandalay Bay

Mandalay Bay is located on the southernmost end of the Strip. The resort features a large casino, shows, restaurants, a large hotel pool complex, Shark Reef Aquarium, a pool party and a nightclub. The entertainment offered at Mandalay Bay is extremely diverse, and so is the crowd. There’s really something for everybody here.

What makes this hotel great for older folks, is its location. Mandalay Bay is less busy than many of the other major casinos because it’s the last hotel on the Strip. You won’t have to deal with long lines or people bumping into you. Also, anyone over the age of 62 gets a 5% discount at all MGM Resorts, which includes Mandalay Bay.

  • Location: South end of the Strip
  • Price: Medium ($100-$200/night)

Plaza

Anyone who’s a bit older will love the Plaza Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas. Some of the amenities here include a casino, comedy shows, bingo, a keno lounge, pickleball courts and a hotel pool. There are also several superb restaurants on the property including, Hash House A Go Go and Oscar’s Steakhouse.

Bingo and pickleball are what make the Plaza great for older folks. It’s not easy to find either of those amenities anywhere else in Las Vegas. If you stay Downtown, you’ll also benefit from the lower required minimum bets on table games. Anyone gambling here can make their bankroll last much longer than on the Strip.
