Suite Hotels on the North Strip of Las Vegas

by Johnny Kampis

Several casino resorts on the north end of the Strip offer suites among their accommodation options with many of the same amenities found in hotels further south on Las Vegas Boulevard. Slightly set away from the busy mid-Strip area of the city, these resorts can provide some tranquility for the weary traveler.

Wynn Las Vegas

Play at the only golf course on the Strip at the Wynn Golf Club directly behind the resort. Only guests may play a round here. This property includes more than 350 suites, which have won both the Mobil Five Star and AAA five-diamond awards. Guests use a VIP check-in and gated entry to access the suites, which feature a dedicated restaurant and a terrace with private pools. Salon suites offer nearly 2,000 square feet of living space and conference tables for business meetings.

Trump International Hotel

Donald Trump's namesake Las Vegas property features nearly 1,300 suites with floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views of the Strip or surrounding mountains. Trump is slightly off Strip, about a block down Fashion Show Drive. This hotel does not include a casino, making it a popular choice for families. Each guest receives a personal attache to provide business and personal services, and kitchens and refrigerators are personally stocked according to each guest's preferences.

Riviera

An older property on this section of Las Vegas Boulevard, Riviera features about 150 suites among its five towers. Each includes marble bathrooms and comfortable European-style beds. Amenities at the Riviera include a barber shop, coin shop, beauty salon and florist. The casino was the location for the filming of the movie "Casino" starring Robert DeNiro and Sharon Stone. Children can enjoy the arcade at the Mardi Gras Entertainment Complex.

Stratosphere

Choose from 250 suites at this property on the very north end of the Strip. Mini-suites provide slightly larger accommodations at a lower price than full suites, while the Penthouse Suite allows visitors to spread out over 2,000 square feet of living space. A revolving restaurant provides stunning views of the Las Vegas valley along with fine dining near the top of the 135-story tower. This is one of the tallest structures west of the Mississippi River and also features several thrill rides at the top.
