If you’re looking for a new and exciting place to stay on the Las Vegas Strip, look no further than Resorts World Las Vegas. This luxurious resort offers everything from casino gaming to world-class dining and shopping options.

After a rough start, Resorts World has become one of my favorite hotels in Las Vegas.

In my Resorts World review, I’ll go in-depth highlighting the hotel, restaurants, bars, and things to do.

Resorts World Review

Rating: 4.5/5

Room Rates: $99-$399 (view available rooms)

Best For: Overall, The Strip, Pools, Sportsbooks

Overview: Resorts World Las Vegas is the newest hotel in Las Vegas and features a wonderful new hotel, luxurious pool, and great restaurants and amenities. However, so far the service hasn’t met the Vegas standard and everything is way overpriced!

Pros

  • It’s New: Resorts World opened in 2021 and is the newest casino on The Strip.
  • Luxury Pool: The pool deck is remarkable and one of the best Vegas hotel pools.
  • Complimentary Drinks: If you’re a gambler, the best complimentary drinks are at Resorts World. I’ve had over 30 varieties of whiskey comped while gambling, and it’s very impressive.

Cons

  • Location: Resorts World is on the north end of The Strip. It’s a long walk in 110-degree heat to the next hotel.
  • It’s Expensive: It’s a luxury property, so prices are inflated. Expect to spend $50+ per person at the restaurants and $15-$20 on cocktails. The cheapest meals will cost about $20 each.

My Experience At Resorts World

I visited Resorts World on opening day. It was an s-show. The service was terrible, the slots were malfunctioning, and the team members were barking at each other with frustration. I returned a few weeks later, and it was much of the same.

Then, nine months later, my wife and I gave it another shot. What a difference time made! They ironed out the problems and created a remarkable casino experience. We haven’t stayed at Resorts World yet, but we go almost every week to use our casino comps.

My favorite things at Resorts World are Crystal Bar, Dawg House Saloon & Sportsbook, and Gatsby’s Cocktail Lounge.

Today, Resorts World is one of my favorite casinos to visit, particularly for the incredible complimentary drink service. At the Crystal Bar, I’ve had over 30 varieties of whiskey comped, and they also made me one of the best comped margaritas I’ve ever had.

Dawg House Saloon & Sportsbook is one of the coolest bar-sportsbook venues that becomes a hub for free live entertainment at night. It’s a great place to watch a game or hang out.

Gatsby’s Cocktail Lounge is fantastic. It’s an upscale bar with a 1920s vibe. It’s the perfect pre-game spot before you hit the clubs or relax while you play some video poker and sip on incredible specialty cocktails.

My least favorite things about Resorts World are the high restaurant prices and location.

Like most luxury properties in Vegas, prices are steep. The cheapest meals from Famous Foods market will cost about $20 each, and you should expect to spend over $50 per person for a meal at any of their sit-down restaurants.

Resorts World is an oddly tricky property to get to. It’s on the far north end of The Strip next to Circus Circus. Because of the heat, most of the year, you’ll need to get a rideshare, taxi, or take the bus.

A Quick Tour of Resorts World Las Vegas

Resorts World is the newest casino resort in Las Vegas. It’s home to over 40 restaurants and bars, one of the best Vegas pools, a nightclub, a dayclub, a shopping mall, and the Resorts World Theater, which hosts Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and more!

Think Italian, but much more modern; that’s Brezza, one of the premier signature Italian restaurants at the Resorts World Las Vegas. Thematically, the food pulls from modern coastal Italian dishes that include freshly made pasta and the freshest seafood selections.
