Hip, hip, Harrah! This hotel on the Strip has everything you want from your Sin City stay, and then some. Enjoy locations of some of your favorite chain restaurants, like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Ben & Jerry’s, soak up some sun by the pool, let your hair down at an open-air street party or decompress at the soothing wellness center on the fourth floor. Picking out a whole new wardrobe is easy, thanks to the 12 shops (plus a UPS store, for shipping it all home), and quite a few entertainers take the stage each evening, like soul band The Righteous Brothers and comedian and magician Mac King.
If you’re ready to roll – the dice, that is – the casino boasts more than 80 table games, plus slot machines that can win you the Vegas jackpot. And whenever you start itching to explore beyond the Harrah’s Las Vegas grounds, the Strip’s greatest hits are at your fingertips. The High Roller – the world’s tallest observation wheel – is right next door, as is the surrounding promenade at The LINQ. Speaking of The LINQ, it shares a monorail station with you, making shuttling up and down the famous boulevard, as well as rubbing shoulders with the glitterati at Drai’s at The Cromwell or taking in a show at Planet Hollywood, a breeze. Talk about hitting the Vegas jackpot.

You get six choices in the dining department, including an oyster bar, a buffet, a food hall, a Ruth’s Chris steakhouse, a grill by country star Toby Keith and a newly opened Ben & Jerry’s. You can’t go wrong with any of the four drinking options, either: Signature Bar; Numb Bar, which focuses on frozen drinks; and the Piano Bar are sleek and cosmopolitan destinations, while Carnaval Court has a more raucous vibe, thanks to the open-air dance parties that it hosts. The surrounding Strip holds countless more eateries and drinkeries – we recommend Strip House at sister-hotel Planet Hollywood, another Caesars Entertainment property.
The fourth-floor spa is a low-key, peaceful spot, with a steam room, a sauna and whirlpools, plus a menu of relaxing treatments. Receive the Warm Desert Stone massage, or wind down with the Stress Reducer package, followed by a service at the salon or a session in the fitness center. Athletic apparel is sold on the premises, in case you happened to forget your workout gear.
No need to wander far for great entertainment, nightlife, shopping or gambling – all of it’s available here. There are tons of shows, from an Elvis-impersonation review at The Piano Bar on weekday afternoons to concerts by The Righteous Brothers and Tenors of Rock; karaoke occurs five nights a week; DJs and bands perform at Carnaval Court’s open-air street party; shops total 12; and the casino’s got some 80 table games, plus a 24-hour Keno parlor. The pool is also a must, when open for the season – this is Vegas, after all.The other best eateries, venues, shops and casinos are steps away, with the High Roller promenade and observation wheel just next door. The hotel shares a monorail stop with The LINQ, to get you up and down the Strip in minutes.
How to Get There
Hotel was great. Rooms were very clean and modern decor. Bed was extremely comfortable. Room had very easy access to casino. We enjoyed the restaurants located inside the casino as well as near the hotel with easy access to get to.
Excellent location and atmosphere, and the staff is exceptional.
I travel to Las Vegas 6-8 times per year for business, and after staying at most of the hotels in the area, I plan to make Harrah's my primary residence when traveling to Las Vegas.
The room is nice but where is the fridge and coffee maker? I liked that you need to use the key to use elevator. The closeness to the venues is nice. We did have a strong weed smell on night. I have stayed at Harrah's for many years and plan on coming back. Thanks.
Harrah's Las Vegas is an older, smaller strip hotel. While not as glitchy as many of the newer and larger strip hotels, it is a very comfortable and very good place to stay if you gamble. It's convenient to many other locations on the strip and has a wide variety of food services to fit any budget. I've been coming to Las Vegas for over 30 years and it's still one of my favorite hotels.
Everything was 4 star and we had a great time. Our room was very nice and clean. We even had a nice view from our window. Concierge called and texted me to make sure everything was good. Even the baggage handlers was very nice and helpful.
