Mirage

Find hotels by type: Non-Smoking Non-Gaming For Teens

You may not believe your eyes upon encountering a tropical oasis in the desert, but this hotel is no mirage -- it's The Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip. Timeless beauty, tropical surroundings and exceptional service make The Mirage one of the most beloved hotels in the city. Guests who stay at The Mirage feel like they've escaped to the islands. Outside the hotel are beautiful waterfalls and The Mirage Volcano.

Upon entering the iconic property, visitors hear the soothing sounds of more waterfalls, smell the exotic flora and can stand on a bridge under a 90-foot-tall glass atrium while taking in the tropical surroundings. You may be in The Mirage, but it feels more like Polynesia. In the lobby, guests waiting to check in are entertained by the aquatic life in a 20,000-gallon saltwater aquarium behind the front desk. Nearly 1,000 forms of marine life, including sharks, stingrays, porcupine fish, eels, sea bass and puffer fish call this place home.

The hotel rooms are nicely appointed, while the beautifully landscaped pool area is the ideal place to spend afternoons. In the warmer months, guests can enjoy VIP service and topless sunbathing at the secluded Bare Pool Lounge. Nearby, the majestic wildcats -- tigers, lions and leopards -- and playful bottlenose dolphins in Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat feel right at home in their tropical environment.

Numerous restaurants -- including the delightful Carnegie Deli, the elegant Japonais, the hip Stack and the spirited Samba Brazilian Steakhouse -- await hungry patrons. You can indulge in creatively crafted hamburgers at BLT Burger, Chinese cuisine and plenty of seafood at Fin and classic regional dishes of Italy at Portofino. Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak boasts meats prepared entirely over an open flame. The 24-hour Pantry features homespun recipes for things like pancakes, omelets, soups, salads, loaded sandwiches and classic desserts. Plus, eat to your heart's content at Cravings, a buffet featuring 11 live-action stations representing different culinary regions or cooking styles.

The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil causes quite a revolution nightly inside its custom-built theater with 360-degree seating. After the show, the Revolution Lounge and adjoining Abbey Road bar keep The Beatles vibe and music going strong. Celebrity impressionist and ventriloquist Terry Fator is a big draw among visitors of all ages, thanks to the fun he has onstage with his puppets -- Walter T. Airdale, Emma Taylor and Winston the Impersonating Turtle. The Aces of Comedy series also hosts some of the biggest names in the funny business. Ladies men Boyz II Men also play the Terry Fator Theatre Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, making Motownphilly groove in Vegas.

Guests can also easily hop on an air-conditioned tram for a free ride to the neighboring Treasure Island hotel. With its many offerings, The Mirage sets a high standard for itself and for every other luxury hotel in Vegas.

Are kids allowed in the Mirage?
