Best Bachelor Party Hotels in Vegas
Be sure you get a good understanding of everyone’s budget and what activities you might have planned as this might dictate where you will stay.
You have a lot of options when it comes to places to stay in Las Vegas—gaming or non-gaming, on or off the Strip, major resort or retro hip motel.
The great thing about Vegas is that there is a hotel for every budget and personal style!
Here are a few great options on and near the Strip broken down by category.
Luxury Hotel Options for a Bachelor Party in Vegas
The Cosmopolitan ushered in a new era for Vegas when it opened in 2010, and for almost a decade it has maintained its reputation as the hottest property on the Strip.
For the best in see-and-be-seen dining and nightlife, stylish shopping, and edgy entertainment, not to mention the incredible three-story Chandelier Bar, there is nowhere else but the Cosmo.
If you have ever walked into the Cosmopolitan, you definitely notice a young and upbeat vibe to it. There are beautiful women all over the place, very fancy decor, and plenty of places to sit and grab a drink. You will most likely see plenty of other bachelor and bachelorette parties there as well.
What makes it great for bachelor parties
Great Location: The location is right in the middle of the strip between Bellagio and Aria and across the street from Planet Hollywood and Paris.
Great day and nightlife options: If your group is looking to visit a club then you can visit one of the top clubs in the world, Marquee, right inside the hotel. Marquee features some of the best EDM DJs and is open Friday through Monday nights.
Cosmopolitan has no shortage of lounges between the Chandelier Bar, Vesper bar, and Bond. Bond is an excellent spot to get pregame and grab a few drinks before starting out the night.
Three Lively Pools: If you are looking for a pool party then be sure to check out Marquee Day Club (MDC). MDC is a club but at a pool, so expect similar price, but it is great for those looking to party at the pool with great music and a fun and attractive crowd.
The other two pools at the Cosmo (boulevard pool and bamboo pool) have a relaxing and lively atmosphere too. Just be sure to get their early to get a spot.
Great food and dining selections: There are plenty of great fine dining selections at Cosmopolitan. If you are looking for a club type of vibe at a steakhouse then be sure to check out STK. For a more casual place of the best hamburgers and a great selection of beers be sure to visit Holsteins. Try one of their signature spiked malts and shakes while you are there!
What is missing
The limiting factor of the Cosmopolitan is probably the casino area.
There is no real sportsbook area to watch and bet games, no poker room, and higher table limits, but if the casino itself is important you can always head over to the Aria or Planet Hollywood next door.
Tips: Cosmopolitan is one of the few hotels in Las Vegas with walkout balconies, so be sure to request one with a balcony, you will not regret it. For some late night eating, head for Secret Pizza on the 3rd level, next to Jaleo down the hall – great price and great pizza that is highly recommended.
The Venetian and Palazzo for Bachelor Parties
At the Venetian, every room is a suite with bathrooms the size of many big-city studio apartments. If your group is looking to live it up, the Venetian is a classic choice that pays homage to classic Italian elegance.
Neighboring Palazzo—really it’s all one and the same property—also offers nothing but suites, but this tower takes the classic Italian luxury of the Venetian and updates it for modern tastes.
The Venetian is overall a great selection for a bachelor party for its location, casino, pools, nightlife, dining options, and room selections.
Why it is great for bachelor parties
Top Casino and Sportsbook: The casino is one of the best on the strip and you will get plenty of votes for the best poker room as well. The poker room has 59 tables with over 14,000 square foot of space and active Omaha and Stud poker tables going on daily.
The Race and Sportsbook is one of the best in Vegas with some of the largest HD viewing screens you will find at any sportsbook. You can also visit Lagasse’s stadium at the Palazzo next door and watch, eat, and bet on sporting events too.
Nightlife: You have a wide range of nightlife options at Venetian/Palazzo with Tao, V bar lounge, Bourbon Room, and more. The close proximity to Wynn/Encore clubs makes it very appealing as well to those bachelor parties interested in some of the best clubs XS as well as Encore Beach Club.
Dining and restaurants: There is a wide range of dining options all over the resort as well as next door at the Palazzo. For cheaper eats, you can visit the two of the food courts inside the Venetian.
Pools: You have no shortage of pools at Venetian/Palazzo with over 7. You have access to pools at both casinos and can walk between each. Plenty of lounge chairs available as well.
What is missing
You will be hard-pressed to get any great deals on rooms at the Venetian during the weekends like any of the 5 star hotels.
TIPS: For a large group, reserve connecting Bella Suites and fit up to 6-8 people comfortably with 4 queen beds, and 2 pull out couches combined.

The Wynn Las Vegas
“Wynn” is pretty much synonymous with “luxury” in Las Vegas, and staying here means you are already in the heart of the hottest day- and nightlife, most exquisite dining, and highest of the high-end shopping.
If Wynn and Encore had any kind of identifiable theme, it would be “rich.”
Just opened in 2020 in Downtown Las Vegas, this is an absolute must for a sports bettor.
Enjoy the Three-story sportsbook, with a wall of TVs and 1000 person viewing capacity to sit and bet on sports.
Circa also features one of the longest indoor bars at 165 feet, not to mention their outdoor pool area Stadium Swim which features six pools and a massive 40 foot tall screen with even more sports to enjoy.
Mid-Range Bachelor Party Hotels in Vegas
It’s easy to get lost inside the MGM Grand’s labyrinthine complex, but that’s because there is SO MUCH to do and see inside this one massive casino-resort that you could spend your whole weekend here, from the Wet Republic dayclub to Hakkasan at night, as well as Cirque and comedy shows, concerts, excellent restaurants, and more.
If you are looking for a bachelor party hotel in Vegas on a limited budget then Planet Hollywood (PH) is an ideal fit. From the moment you step inside the casino floor with the music bumping, you are already getting excited for the wild times ahead.
What makes it great for bachelor parties
The location, price, and overall vibe are the top reasons this is a great choice for a bachelor party hotel in Las Vegas. Planet Hollywood’s casino has a great party vibe with music bumping in the background.
Table limits are lower than some of the other nearby 5 star casinos and they have a pleasure pit with girls in bikinis dealing, which I am sure would entertain a bachelor party group.
Although PH doesn’t have the best nightlife or pool party for that matter, you are so close to great nearby places like Hakkasan, Marquee, and Wet Republic, it will not really matter. PH is also right next to the Miracle Mile Shops with plenty of cheap eats to satisfy your late-night cravings and several places with great happy hours and cheap drink prices.
What it lacks
If a pool it one of the main factors for your bachelor party, you might want to look elsewhere. The pool area is pretty small but does have a pretty lively atmosphere. Also as mentioned before, you will most likely venture elsewhere for the nightlife and clubs.
TIP: Be sure to check out Earl of Sandwich for some of the best sandwiches in Las Vegas, open 24/7 and cheap as well. For a place to lounge around and grab a drink before going out for the night be sure to visit Heart Bar in PH.

Fun and Affordable Hotel for Bachelor Parties in Vegas
As a general rule of thumb, it is almost always cheaper to stay downtown, and it is also worth pointing out that DTLV is kind of the place to be nowadays (and you can’t go to Vegas without visiting Fremont Street; that’s just a fact).
At the Golden Nugget, you’ll find Strip-worthy luxury at DTLV prices, and also a pool where you can literally (okay, kind of more figuratively) swim with sharks, with a three-story-tall water slide that passes through a shark-infested aquarium.
OYO Las Vegas
Formerly the Hooters Casino and Resort, OYO has overtaken the space, made some solid updates (like stylishly renovated rooms), and kept the iconic Hooters restaurant.
They offer a ton of different discounts, from sports packages to discounts for California residents, and is still so close to the Strip that you’re practically still on it, but at a fraction of the price.
You can usually enjoy cheaper table minimums here as well.
Rent a House
When you’ve got a big group, sometimes it’s best to skip trying to book a cluster of hotel rooms and convince guys to double up and instead just rent a vacation home.
There are lots of different kinds of spaces available in a wide range of price points on home-sharing sites like Vrbo and Airbnb, from private two-story penthouse suites overlooking the Strip to multi-room mansions with pools and huge outdoor patios with massive barbecue grills perfect for big groups.
Artisan Hotel Boutique
The Artisan is a VERY cool, gothic-chic non-gaming boutique hotel known for its after-hours (like, WAY after hours) parties and topless pool.
It’s also relatively cheap AND conveniently located to some of the top “talent” in Vegas, being just a few minutes drive to Sapphire and the Spearmint Rhino, as well as a number of dispensaries if that’s the direction your party is headed.
