With casino games known as the main attraction of casinos, few realise that the hotel and accommodations that are attached to the casinos often rival the bells and whistles below them. If you’re after an opulent stay with money being no question, the below will satisfy the most discerning of guests.

The dancing fountains outside the hotel are situated on an 8-acre lake, and these have become an icon of the sort of opulence with which Sin City delights patrons.
