Working it in Las Vegas
Why yes, people do travel to Vegas for work. Countless conventions and trade shows take place year-round in this city, and hotels know just what guests are looking for when passing through town. We handpicked our favorite hotels for business travelers so you can spend more time getting work don—and strategizing plans for happy hour.
Aria Resort & Casino
In a city that attracts more than 22,000 trade shows and conventions annually, Aria is always at the top of the list for “bleasure” (i.e., business meets pleasure) trips. Go in for a few meetings and extend your trip an extra day or two. The hotel app is equipped with mobile check-in, so you can skip the all too familiar Vegas front desk lines. Their Business Center is open daily, and comes with mega fast wifi, AV capabilities, and expansive meeting spaces.
Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas
The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is a rare on-Strip resort where you don’t have to walk through a massive casino to get around. We love not having to worry about noise, smoke, or crazies on premises when trying to get work done. The hotel is attached to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, for added convenience. Expect the high-end accommodations that the Four Seasons name comes with.
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas
The Mandarin Oriental is great for the business traveler who doesn’t care for the shenanigans of Vegas nightclubs and gambling. You won’t be engulfed in a casino haze here–nor will your clothes smell of cigarettes. Instead, you’ll be welcomed to an immaculate room, pristine meeting spaces, and a staff that’s detail-driven. Rather than spending free time gambling money away, you could always chat with the concierge and book a hiking trip instead. It’s the M.O. way.
Wynn Las Vegas
The appeal of the Wynn goes far beyond its countless sources of entertainment. Besides the free wifi, this luxury property is appealing to business travelers who can make use of private suite Internet access, courier, and even notary services on premises. To top things off, they have same-day dry cleaning and plenty of options to unwind. Their pool, spa, and salons are all top-notch.
