Top Hotels for Teens

This city has now become a prime destination for families after embracing this new market of visitors by offering more family-friendly hotel accommodations, shows, shopping and activities that teens enjoy. The four miles of the Las Vegas Strip stretching from the STRAT to Mandalay Bay can be traveled via city bus, taxi and walking. Teens can pop into several attractions along the way including the Game Works arcade at Town Square, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at the Venetian, or watch the volcano erupt nightly at the Mirage.

Best Vegas Hotels for Teens

Mandalay Bay

There are a few teen hotels in Las Vegas but not a single one gets much better than Mandalay Bay. It's the southernmost major resort on the Strip so it's a bit quieter (by Vegas standards at least!) than other Vegas hotels. Mandalay Bay has a pool that is quite possibly the best in the world! I's actually four distinctive pools (including a wave pool spread out on 11 acres and includes a beach consisting of 2,700 tons of real sand. Additionally, there are two other distinct hotels within Mandalay Bay, The Four Seasons and Delano. We think Mandalay Bay is the best hotels for teens in Vegas for so many reasons.

The Luxor may be the most compelling hotel for teens in Las Vegas solely because of it's stunning exterior. This iconic 30-story glass and steel pyramid has a beam of light streaming from the tip of the building that can be seen from the moon...though that trip requires a longer flight. Located right next to Mandalay Bay, the Luxor was named after a famous Egyptian city and now contains famous acts within. From the comedian Carrot Top, to Fantasy, a leading Vegas show for the last 22 years, as well as 'America's Got Talent Las Vegas Live!'. If that entertainment doesn't appeal to little Suzie, try the 19,000 square feet of pools or the 125,650 square feet of pool deck, making it the largest in all of Vegas. If lounging pool-side is how you want to spend your vacation, we encourage you to head straight to the Luxor!
