The Waldorf Astoria is geared towards a fully immersive luxury experience. Everything a good-taste connoisseur could want is here: Michelin star chefs, yoga and Pilates studios, full-service spa and salon, and more. It's wonderful for adults, and luckily for your family it's great for kids, too.
The Waldorf Astoria is right in the middle of the Strip, north of MGM Grand and south of the Bellagio.
Rooms start at 500 square feet with one king bed. The decor is modern comfort and relaxed colors. Check-in time is 3:00 PM, check-out time is 11:00 AM.
The Waldorf Astoria has three pools – two for swimming and one for plunging - on the eighth-floor deck, along with two whirlpool spas. Cabanas are available for rent and come packed with amenities like non-alcoholic drinks, sunscreen, and a flat-screen TV. The Pool Café is a great spot for lunch, with fresh healthy fare that tastes great without weighing your little ones down.
This is the ultimate candy lover’s dream. 28,000 square feet of color, chocolate, and imagination take over four whole floors of fun. Kids will love customizing their own M&Ms candy on the Personal Printer: pick a color, then a message or an image, and go! Your very own M&Ms! There’s also a short (and free!) 3D movie “I Lost My “M” in Las Vegas” showing throughout the day, cataloguing the adventures of the iconic candy characters.
M&Ms World is open daily from 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM. The film shows at regular intervals between 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
If your family is the outdoorsy type, why not take a day trip? The Lake Mead National Recreation Area is just half an hour away from the Strip and includes the Hoover Dam. Get stunning scenery, modern marvels, and unique nature in one. Two tour options are available for visitors: the 30-minute Powerplant Tour and the hour-long Dam Tour. Both tours include admission to the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center features exhibitions, educational material, and amenities.
Hours vary seasonally.
Topgolf is tons of fun for everyone! Take the driving range into the 21st century with over 100 climate-controlled bays where you and the family can play in comfort. Specially-chipped balls track accuracy and distance for those keeping score. In addition to golf, there are two swimming pools, a full menu for hungry little ones. Got an aspiring Tiger on your hands? Sign your kids aged 6-12 up for a half-day Summer Academy with certified professionals and see why Topgolf is "everyone's game!"
Topgolf is open daily from 9:00 AM to 2:00 AM.
The Waldorf Astoria's dining choices are geared more towards an adult palate. Their showcase restaurant, Twist, is haute French cuisine by Michelin-starred Chef Gagnaire, but the hotel's website advertises special kid's menus available upon request at each restaurant. Unlike many other resorts, menu previews and opening hours are not available on the Waldorf Astoria's website. In-room dining is available 24 hours a day.
Zen Kitchen is a unique blend of Asian cuisine prepared by specially-trained chefs alongside classic American favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Savor a cup of the finest loose leaf tea accompanied by gourmet pastries while overlooking the city from the 23rd floor. Sound too uptight for kids? Don't worry! Tea Lounge has a special menu designed just for children, as well as vegan and gluten-free options. They request 24 hours' notice for both the kids' menu and the vegan and gluten-free menu.
Luckily, there are plenty of family-friendly dining options within easy walking distance, like Fatburger, Shake Shack, Bruxie Original Fried Chicken & Waffles, Chili’s, Tamba Indian Cuisine, and more. Be sure to check out the resorts nearby (like Aria, MGM Grand, and New York New York) for even more choices.
The Waldorf Astoria is a Hilton property and participates in the Hilton Honors program. Guests earn points that can be put toward special members-only deals and discounts.
While the Waldorf Astoria does not offer on-sight childcare, the concierge arranges babysitting service with a minimum of 24 hours' notice.
The Waldorf Astoria charges a daily $45 resort fee that covers fitness center access, workout classes, Internet access, phone calls, and a notary service.
The Waldorf Astoria does everything it can to be worthy of its hefty price tag, and it mostly succeeds; all ages will be comfortable here and the location makes up for its few shortcomings, especially in the dining department.
There are many mid-range options on the Strip that won't hit your wallet as hard, so if luxury isn't a priority then don't hesitate to look elsewhere.
