####Chic, Modern Rooms Near Glittering Vegas Strip The Las Vegas Strip—all rhinestones and razzle-dazzle—throws its neon glare into the desert sky. Less than a mile away, the Holiday Inn Las Vegas combines the chain’s customary aura of comfort and dependability with a sleek, Vegas-appropriate mod aesthetic. This chic sensibility is on display right away in the lobby, which is adorned with stylish artwork and plush lounge seating.
After checking in, road warriors retreat to spacious standard guest rooms dominated by either a king-size bed or two queen-size beds dressed in white linens with chocolate-brown accents. Tired travelers can stretch out on the bed and switch on the 42-inch LCD TV, or reconnect with the outside world by using the complimentary in-room wireless Internet or their advanced telepathy skills. Come morning, the Forte Grill serves up a hot breakfast to fortify guests for workouts in the 24-hour fitness center or laps in the expansive pool shimmering in the hot desert sun.
Las Vegas: Bright Lights & Quirky Amusements
Given its proximity to the Strip, the Holiday Inn Las Vegas provides a perfect launching pad from which to experience the panoply of casinos, shopping centers, and glitzy shows the city is famous for. Apart from the usual slot machines, buffets, and Elvis impersonators, off-the-beaten-path amusements include an indoor wind tunnel offering skydiving simulations and a pinball museum housing more than 150 flashing, whirring machines still in working order. Those fond of nontraditional shopping venues can browse the racks at one of the world’s largest vintage stores, abounding with clothes and accessories spanning every 20th-century style imaginable. A giant fountain show offers a free nighttime spectacle to Strip visitors. Colored by sparkling lights, jets of water shoot high into the air to the accompaniment of oohs, aahs, and perfectly timed piped-in music.
