Circa Review

Rating: 4.4/5

What We Like

  • Best Downtown Pool: Stadium Swim is the best pool in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s part dayclub, part sportsbook, and simply one of the coolest spots in town.
  • Best Sportsbook: The sportsbook at Circa is the best in Las Vegas, bar-none. It’s the most exciting sports atmosphere outside of a stadium.
  • Fantastic Food & Drink: The collection of restaurants and bars at Circa is top-notch. From 8 Eat to Saginaw’s to Legacy Club, you’ll be craving the food on your flight home.
  • Adults-only: Circa started a trend in Las Vegas as the first adults-only property. You must be 21 to go inside Circa. We like that a lot!

What We Don’t Like

  • No Live Entertainment: Circa’s focus is sports. They currently do not have any shows or live entertainment outside of special viewing parties for major sporting events.
  • Expensive Parking: One of the biggest frustrations with Circa is the cost of parking. Most downtown hotels offer parking validation or affordable rates–not Circa!

Bottom Line

Circa Hotel and Casino is the newest, hippest property in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s got everything you could want in a hotel – great rooms, excellent restaurants, an incredible pool, and a sportsbook that will make every sports fan happy.

Plus, it’s adults-only, so you can really let loose and enjoy yourself. Just be prepared to pay for parking – it’s one of the few downsides to this otherwise top-notch property. If you’re looking for the ultimate Vegas experience, Circa is the place.
