Accommodation & other recommendations for Bachelor party in Vegas

Hi everyone

my best mate is getting married and Iím responsible for planning the three city bachelor in LA , Miami and Vegas to end it off

LA and Miami Iím very familiar with all the spots and things to do, but Vegas never was my thing.

Can anyone recommend where to stay with the boys for suite or penthouse options? I saw Aria was with hyatt and had a nice penthouse. We are mid twenties to early thirties so can adjust to any environment pretty well. There are so many hotels and options I donít even know where to start. Thereís only 4 of us so we could make do with two bedroom suite , maybe even two one bedroom ones.

is air bnb a better option for a nice spot? Anything fun You can recommend besides the dinner , pool party and club night? Staying at a nice casino doesnít matter as we arenít all super big gamblers.

Thanks in advance for all your help. The three city trip had been a bit of a pain to plan as best man. Appreciate any input as Iíve never done Vegas with the boys just always with my girlfriend.

Aria would certainly be at the top of the list in terms of location, quality of accommodations and fun places to stay if you want a 2 BR suite. But, it will be expensive. Not sure what your budget is/how cost conscious you are. Cosmopolitan would be good for your age demo - don't know if any wrap around suites have 2 beds but you might try to get one of those for hanging out and then a lesser room or two where some of the crew just sleep. Vdara is in the same complex and will be cheaper but also pretty staid since no casino. 2 BR SkyLofts at MGM would be great but will be $2-3,000 a night and the technology is so outdated it undoes some of the cool factor.

Renting a car and doing a hike at Red Rocks or Valley of Fire (and Hoover Dam if there's any water left behind it) are good for a daytime activity - if you're not there in the hotter months. Golf of course. Pinball Museum for an hour or two.

Great advise.. Thank you!

We arent super well off but since its a bachelor party we aren't too concerned about the price between the boys - especially knowing we are in a city like vegas.

I will look at cosmo and vdara! I think the pool party we wanted to go was actually at the cosmo. Nice to know about skylofts at MGM as its a hotel I did look at through Hyatt. I will pass on Aria then.

We booked a couple exotics so driving somewhere would be really really cool. I checked out hoover dam before and it was an awesome drive/experience, but never heard of Red Rocks/Valley of Fire. a Hike definitely sounds great. Dates at end of Sept so not sure how hot it will be there but I assume better than July/August when it's unbearable hairdryer?

Definitely will set up a tee time. any recommendations on a course? Pinball museum ive never heard of but will look into it now.

Thanks again for such recommendations ) FT comes through once again!

Elara hotel has 2 and 3 bedroom suites which were originally built to be luxury condos just before the last housing crash. Was converted to a Hilton timeshare property, but is rented out by Hilton as a Grand Vacation Club brand. It's non-gaming, non smoking, but is attached to Planet Hollywood casino and a large indoor shopping mall. It's across the strip from Aria.

End of Sept. We've been there in the dead of summer where it's unbearable hairdryer type heat so I think we will be ok with the temps (hopefully) haha!
