Don't Stay on the Strip: The 4 Best Hotels in Downtown Las Vegas

Cynthia Reed | May 08, 2018

Recent tourism numbers show that the popularity of Downtown is growing faster than ever. And why not? It offers all the fun of the Strip, but with lower prices and looser slots. Most Downtown hotels are right off the Fremont Street Experience, which is a free 24/365 street party. In addition to offering the classic Vegas glamour, Downtown hotels are also near new cultural offerings, such as the Mob Museum, the Neon Museum, the Arts District and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Get around using the Downtown Loop, a new free shuttle provided by the City of Las Vegas.
