Center Strip Hotel Options

Just like the North Strip and South Strip, the Center Strip has a range of hotels to choose from, all within easy walking distance of each other. It used to have a wider range of room rates, but the loss of the Bourbon Street (many years ago) and with the Cromwell replacing Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall, there aren’t any truly budget conscious options. The variety now is in hotel/casino brand and design.  The main center Strip hotel options are Aria, Bellagio, Caesars Palace, Bally’s, Paris, Planet Hollywood, the Flamingo and in the near future, the Cromwell.

The most affordable option here is the Flamingo. It also has the smallest basic rooms, which are 350 square feet. That is small for a modern hotel room, but was really nice back when the Flamingo was built. The Flamingo also has one of the best pools in Las Vegas.
