The Mandarin Oriental offers an ideal blend of features for your Las Vegas family vacation if you aren’t interested in gambling. This luxury hotel is smoke- and gaming-free, with on-site amenities like a beautifully low-key pool area and childcare gear like playpens and bath toys to make life easier for you.

Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa


Offering the seclusion from the Strip and providing all the various activities you could want from a Vegas resort, Red Rock is a local favorite thanks to its shockingly reasonable prices. Your family will love the resort’s famous buffet and the fact that there’s an on-site kids’ club to provide fun and childcare if you want to hit the casino.

Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa


If you’re interested in taking in Vegas’ unique natural beauty and enjoying the history of Hoover Dam you may prefer the beautiful scenery of this Lake Mead resort, which provides a dramatically different experience than a hotel on the Strip. Outdoor activities and a manmade beach make this a good choice for outdoorsy families who want to avoid hustle and bustle.

Green Valley Ranch Resort & Spa

An upscale off-Strip option for families looking to preserve some of the typical features of a Vegas vacation without getting the kids in the thick of it, Green Valley Ranch offers opulent architecture, a huge pool and tons of family-friendly restaurant options on site. There’s also an on-site movie theater where the kids can stay occupied while you visit the casino.

The Mirage

Casinos can be some great, free places to visit in Vegas, but they often require a trip through large, smoky spaces to get there. The Mirage keeps many of its fun attractions outdoors, where this isn’t as much of a concern. That draws a lot of families to the resort, resulting in a welcoming atmosphere for your kids on the Strip.

Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club Resort


With its location just off the Strip, Elara offers the right balance if your group includes some adults who want to immerse themselves in Vegas madness. This Hilton resort has large guest suites that include kitchenettes, a great option if your kids are particular about their food or if you want to focus your spending on entertainment rather than meals.

Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas


As one of the first hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard, the Four Seasons is a stone’s throw from the airport and the famous welcome sign. Aside from the convenience, this hotel caters to families with amenities like babysitters and access to the Mandalay Bay pool “beach,” a family-friendly option among the many racy daytime pool scenes in Vegas.

The Venetian


The Venetian doesn’t have a family-friendly pool, but the hotel itself has such a theme park quality to it that your family may enjoy staying here and then heading out to do other things in the Las Vegas area to keep yourselves entertained. Another plus for families is the fact that the suites at the hotel are large with plenty of room for cribs.

South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa


If your family is visiting Las Vegas to visit relatives or to check out outdoor attractions like Red Rock Canyon, your group will enjoy the fun and comforts of the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa, which is located south of the main attractions of the Strip. There’s a lot for older kids in particular to do here, including an arcade and movie theater.

The Palazzo

The Palazzo is arguably Vegas’ most kid-friendly mega resort, with thoughtful features like kids’ menus at casual restaurants on site and multiple swimming pools for active little ones to explore. Cribs and rollaway beds are both available too, which makes it possible for you to configure your room in comfortable ways.
