There are a lot of places to stay in Las Vegas, even more places to play. But finding a hotel in Las Vegas without a casino can be a little tricky. Believe it or not, some people actually prefer to stay in a non-gaming hotel in Las Vegas, myself included. So I’ve put together a short list of non-gaming hotels in Las Vegas for those of you looking for places to stay, but not necessarily play.
Five Non-Gaming Hotels in Las Vegas
The Signature at MGM Grand
The Signature at MGM Grand is located adjacent to the MGM Grand. It has so much to offer, but if you need to play hop over to the MGM Grand or another casino on the Strip. From restaurants, coffee shops and a number of pools complete with cabanas and poolside cocktails The Signature at MGM Grand is a retreat right on the Las Vegas Strip. Oh, and it’s one the kids will love!
Vdara is located off the Las Vegas Strip but if you need to play Vegas style, it’s an easy walk over to Aria Resort and Casino. Vdara is a boutique hotel with a variety of amenities and different types of room options; all the hotel rooms are dog friendly. If you stay at Vdara, you must visit Vice Versa Patio and Lounge – grab a spot on the patio. The food and signature drinks are simply amazing! Try the crab tacos and surf and turf sliders. Delish!

Rumor Boutique Hotel
RUMOR has it that this is Las Vegas’ newest all-suite boutique hotel. It is located across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino so you can get your game on and then head back into your private oasis at the Rumor Boutique Hotel.
Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay
Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay is another non-gaming hotel in Las Vegas located right on the Vegas Strip; it is connected to Mandalay Bay. This 43-story golden tower offers a variety of hotel rooms for you and your pet – yes, it’s a pet friendly hotel too. In addition to being a luxury hotel with every imaginable amenity – including a beach – Delano is home to a number of shows and Shark Reef. At Shark Reef you can see all kinds of sea life — sawfish, giant rays, endangered green sea turtles, piranha, jellyfish and the rare golden crocodile, to name a few. In all, there are over 2,000 animals in 1.6 million gallons of water. Kids will love it!
Wyndham Grand Desert Resort
The Wyndham Grand Desert Resort is a great option for families. The resort offers one and two-bedroom suites with fully-equipped kitchens, as well as a variety of entertainment options. Think pools, hot tubs, a 3D movie theater and a daily activities program for kids (and adults). The resort also offers a free shuttle service if you want to head to the Strip.
