We just had a debate over where to spend our next girls' getaway and Vegas ruled the conversation. We all agreed that regardless of when we go or what else we do, we're staying at the Cosmopolitan Hotel (pictured above). We'd request one of their terrace suites with a balcony-- just imagine fresh air in Vegas! We'd also spend some time in their desert-theme Sahra Spa and otherwise enjoy hanging out in the latest, chicest resort on the strip. The Cosmopolitan has a handful of impressive offers including the Book 3, Stay 4 package where your fourth night is free and the Stay Until Sundown package where checkout isn't until 6:00 p.m.- perfect if you like to stay out til morning or have a late day flight home. Both would suit a party filled Memorial Day weekend perfectly.
Another good choice would be the City Center with its three impressive resorts: the Mandarin, Aria (its adults only pool, Liquid, is pictured above) and Vdara, a non-gaming eco-swank hotel. With so many resorts interconnected you don't have to take a taxi or hoof-it-in-your-stilettos all weekend.
Wherever you stay in Vegas over Memorial Day weekend, you can expect the pool scenes to be lively during the day, many hosted by celebrity dj's, like at the Encore Beach Club (known as XS at night). Before the Cosmopolitan and the City Center were hotspots, the Wynn and its partner, Encore, were the most glam hotels in town. While the Wynn may have a more mature rep, its opening of Surrender, another inside/outside pool party scene amps up its coolness factor. Look for a full line up of entertainment across all of the Wynn and Encore pools and lounges over Memorial Day weekend.
