I think Las Vegas is best when experienced without the distractions of pets or children, but I also think that it is better to travel with them than to miss out on experiencing Las Vegas entirely.
If you are looking for a pet friendly hotel, you are in luck. A growing number of Las Vegas resorts are happy to welcome you pet. Caesars Palace, Harrah’s, Bally’s, The Flamingo, The LINQ, Paris, Planet Hollywood and Rio all have special “PetStay” Rooms. The PetStay rooms not only allow pets, but they include food and water bowls and dog treats. They do limit this to 2 dogs that weigh less than 50lbs each. The dogs must be in a kennel/crate when unattended. Kennel rentals are available at most locations. For full details on the PetStay program, visit http://www.caesars.com/petstaylasvegas/. PetStay rooms are typically $25-$40 more than the regular room and require a $100/night incidentals deposit. That deposit must be made on a credit card. Debit cards and cash are not accepted for it. More information on the PetStay policies can be found on the PetStay Policies FAQ.
Vdara at City Center offers V-Dog suites which allow you to bring up to 2 dogs with a combined weight of 70lbs or less. The V-Dog suites cost an additional $50 per night. They also charge a $75 cleaning fee per stay.
Delano Las Vegas allows dogs for 2 dogs with a combined weight up to 100lbs for an extra $50 per night, They also offer dog sitting service for $25/hour if you do not want to put your pets in a kennel while you are out.
The Four Seasons Las Vegas allows dogs under 25lbs for an additional $50 per stay.
If you don’t need to stay on the Strip, you can stay at pet-friendly hotel chains like La Quinta, Clarion, Emerald Suites and Best Western. Note: within those hotel chains, the policy can vary from location to location, so check your specific hotel for details.
