Las Vegas only caters to adults—or does it?
With all the casinos, nightclubs, bars, and parties, this city is the perfect getaway destination for adults indeed. However, that does not mean that families cannot enjoy this wonderful and exhilarating place. Parents can still have fun here, and children can also enjoy everything Las Vegas has to offer. To fully enjoy Vegas, you need to get the hotel right. Choosing the best Las Vegas hotel for kids will be the most important part, and the start of a great Las Vegas family trip. Fortunately, The Brooks Team is here to help. Here is how you can choose the right Las Vegas hotel and resorts!
Tips in Choosing a Las Vegas Hotel for Kids
You have to make sure that the hotel or resort you will be staying at for a weekend getaway is a family-friendly one. This will ensure that your children will have fun and and still be safe at the same time. Take note of these few tips.
- Consider the location
First you need to consider the location. Some of the most popular and major hotels, resorts and various attractions can be found on The Strip. Choosing a hotel along The Strip can be a good choice if you want to visit the major attractions, but it might also be a disadvantage as The Strip has the tendency to be raucous. Hotels off Strip, on the other hand, can be a good alternative if you want a more tranquil stay. The disadvantage is that getting to attractions might take a bit more work. Make sure you think about this thoroughly.
- Know the amenities
It is also important that you get to know the amenities of the hotels you have your sights on. Each Las Vegas hotel has different amenities, and these amenities will surely help you and your family enjoy your stay at the city. Some hotels have the finest swimming pools open to guests, some have their very own fitness centers and spas. Some of them even has movie theaters and restaurants for the ultimate entertainment and convenience. Take the time to know these hotels and check which one of them has the amenities that are appropriate for families, especially kids.
- Consider the price
Of course, one should also not forget about the price. Since this is Vegas, expect the fees to be higher than what you would usually expect. Take advantage of the deals and family promos or packages if they have some. You should keep a lookout for the hidden resort fees as well. Some hotels charge for things like parking, Wi-Fi, and other use of amenities. Make sure you clear this up with the hotel managements so you and your family are ready for such charges.
