Off the top of my head, I'm thinking Bellagio, Venetian, and Wynn as the top three.

What other properties are *at least* as good (not merely a close fourth)?

Do any of Area, Caesars, Cosmo, or Mandalay Bay make the cut?

I'm thinking of Palazzo as a step below Venetian, and Encore as a step below Wynn, because without the parent properly, the sister property wouldn't be nearly as special.

I don't consider the Venetian a top-tier casino. Maybe ten years ago, but not today. My top-end friends stay at Caesars, by choice.
I've heard fantastic things about the MGM Mansions but never been there myself.

Well, I haven't stayed at any of them, except Wynn and Encore. I'm kind of going by the luxury of the common areas. This shot of the Venetian lobby is why it's top-tier to me. It's a slightly different experience than, say, Slot-A-Fun.

I agree, the common areas of Venetian are probably the nicest in town. Every resort has nice high roller suites but I discount those and would only consider the common areas.

I have stayed recently at BELLAGIO, ARIA, and PARIS.

I prefer PARIS.

Although, when you factor in price, you can get something pretty nice at BALLY's for less than the others, and I may try to stay there again next time. Separate His/Her Closets, Separate His/Her Sinks, and a big jetted garden tub, view of about 2/3rds of the Bellagio Fountain Show. This was in an "Executive Suite".

So, is the question, ROOMS or COMMON AREAS ? And sorry to complicate things ! But who doesn't love a good debate ?

Good question, let’s go with common areas.

OK, then VENETIAN and WYNN followed by BELLAGIO due to the Conservatory.

And in 99th place, Ellis Island.

I'm the opposite. I care far more for my room than what the lobby looks like. Different strokes and all of that.

Yeah, but Slots-A-Fun is a casino, so it’s not really fair to compare the two.

(Yes, I know Venetian is a casino.)

((Watch them come out of the woodwork to say, “Mission didn’t even know The Venetian was a casino,” otherwise.))

… And in 99th place, Ellis Island.

Have you been to Ellis Island lately?

Oh, sure, luxury-wise it’s near the back of the back, but certainly not last.

And they’ve been fixing it up in recent years. It can’t come close to the places already discussed, but it’s kinda nice.
