Where to Stay in Las Vegas During the WSOP

Las Vegas

The World Series of Poker is around the corner, which means it’s time for poker players to book flights and decide where they're going to live for the next few months. Selecting a comfortable spot to lay your head after a grueling day of grinding is very important during the series. Whether you are looking for comfort, a summer pad with friends, or a high-class experience, many options exist on and off the Strip to accommodate your needs throughout the summer. Listed below are some places to consider for the series.

Las Vegas Luxury Hotels

If you have a big bankroll and are looking to do more than just play poker all day and night, one of these luxury hotels may be for you. Busting from a WSOP event will be tolerable when you surround with high-class suites, VIP club hot-spots, and pool cabanas to relax with your friends.

Bellagio

Only a mile and a half from the Rio, Bellagio offers class and luxury like no other venue. If you busted from an event earlier than you hoped, you can always try your luck at cash games that run daily. Bellagio Poker Room features 37 tables and spreads both limit and no-limit cash games of all stakes. If you’re really feeling lucky you can join the action with other high-stakes professionals in the world-famous Bobby’s Room where any game is played with stakes from $400/$800 and higher. Take a break to watch Cirque du Soleil’s “O” right around the corner from the poker room, relax at the spa or catch some sun at the Mediterranean-style pool, indulge in VIP bottle service at The Bank or Hyde. And don’t forget to enjoy the mesmerizing Bellagio fountains.

Caesars Palace

This iconic Las Vegas hotel, known for its impeccable service and lavish accommodations, offers special touches that make the difference between an ordinary trip and an experience never to be forgotten. Caesars Palace is host to some of the best restaurants in the city with the Bacchanal Buffet, Rao’s, Gordon Ramsay and upscale Japanese restaurant Nobu. Take in the nightlife experience at Pure Nightclub, or indulge in new attire at the Forum Shops.

Aria Resort & Casino

Considered one of the top poker rooms in Las Vegas, perhaps even the world, Aria attracts some of the city's best players, including top professionals who play the biggest games in Ivey’s Room. As the centerpiece of CityCenter Las Vegas, Aria brings unique culinary offerings, extravagant nightlife, and Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil. If you don’t mind the price tag, Aria is offering a new generation of resort experiences. The 2.2 miles from the Rio is a short five-minute hop, skip and jump to this poker destination.

Las Vegas Budget Hotels

For the player looking to stay focused at the summer series and who would sleep inside the Rio poker room if he could, some of these hotels may be better options. They are affordable and offer the comfort and conveniences of a hotel close to the tournament. Staying in a hotel for a long time can get rather costly. Fortunately, Caesars Entertainment has provided some of the best and most inexpensive rates for the WSOP player.

Gold Coast Hotel & Casino

The Gold Coast earns the award for least expensive accommodations for both living arrangements and inexpensive food. Plus, it’s right around the corner within walking distance if you don’t want the inconvenience of driving through the hustle and bustle of Las Vegas Boulevard. It even has midnight bowling for $1 a game, another way to keep the gambler in you alive.

The Linq

The Linq, formerly known as Imperial Palace and The Quad, still offers everything of the past, including the Auto Collection, Legends in Concert, and Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas. Love food? House a Go Go offers dishes served in gigantic proportions, leaving you with leftovers to last through the series.

Harrah’s

Located centrally on the strip, Harrah’s is within walking distance of other casinos and restaurants. Day and night, you can enjoy music from live bands at the Carnaval Court or satisfy your food cravings at Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar & Grill, Oyster Bar, and other eateries. Get your morning fix with Starbucks before you head to the Rio to play hours of poker.

Bally’s

Want to be near the Rio but not too far from all the chaos on the Strip? Bally’s is at the center of the action less than a mile away from where you need to be. If you want to stay fit after sitting on your bum for 10 hours straight, then use Bally’s Las Vegas Tennis Complex. The courts are illuminated so you can enjoy a match day or night. Players who stay at Bally’s can also take in a round of golf at either Cascata Golf or Rio Secco Golf.

Flamingo

Flamingo Las Vegas is home to Margaritaville where it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere. Jimmy Buffett teamed up with the Flamingo to debut a gaming experience like no other. At Margaritaville Casino, players can take a break from the four-wall poker room filled with thousands of players at the Rio and enjoy the laid-back vibe of the islands.

The In-Between Hotels

These hotels are neither the least nor most expensive of the bunch. Rather, they are suitable for most people’s price range and are some of the best deals offered from Caesars Entertainment.

Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino

Nothing beats the convenience of waking up at the Rio and taking the elevator downstairs to your "office." The last thing players want after a ten-hour work shift is to fuss through the traffic that Las Vegas Boulevard is known for. In fact, no car is necessary if you stay at the Rio; a cab can take you anywhere you need if you want to venture from your poker abode. Being so close to the tournament can also be a huge benefit to players because it gives you the chance to go back to your room and relax during dinner break to shower or take a catnap.

Paris Las Vegas

There’s nothing like coming to Vegas for the series but feeling like you’re in Paris between events. As a hotel guest, you can experience the same ambiance of Europe’s most beloved city. Take a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower or run into a celebrity or two at the Chateau Nightclub. Eat at one of the many fine restaurants like Gordon Ramsay Steak, Mon Ami Gabi, or satisfy your sweet tooth at Sugar Factory.

Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Planet Hollywood has an ambiance all its own. A hot spot for party central may not be the best place to keep you focused on your task at hand, but it will keep you lose and help you forget any troubles endured from the day. The food options are endless, including Gordon Ramsay Burger, Koi, and Striphouse, and there is also the Playing Field Lounge to keep your mind relaxed and carefree.
