See recent posts by Family Vacation Critic

Las Vegas with kids? Yes! Not only are there are a ton of kid-friendly shows and free activities in Vegas, but the casino resorts and hotels are surprisingly kid-friendly, too. These kid-friendly hotels in Las Vegas offer spacious guestroom options for families and activities and amenities suitable (or designed for) kids of all ages.

Editor’s note: Some services and amenities at these locations may be altered/halted due to the pandemic. Save these ideas for when it’s safe to travel again, and always follow all COVID-19 restrictions, rules, and safety regulations both at your destination and upon returning home.

1. ARIA Sky Suites

ARIA Resort and Casino is tucked back off of the Vegas Strip and is actually two hotels in one. You can’t go wrong with either lodging, although the ARIA Sky Suites‘ top-floor accommodations are particularly spacious and luxurious. Four swimming pools with cabanas and a game room for teens provide fun for families. The hotel also features more than a dozen restaurants.

2. Bellagio Las Vegas

Famous for its magical dancing fountains—scored to music and lit at night—the Bellagio Las Vegas is one of the most sought-after luxury hotels in Las Vegas. The famous resort offers nearly 4,000 rooms, 500 of which are suites. Larger families and multigenerational vacationers can really appreciate the resort’s villas with two- and three-bedroom options, as well as fully equipped kitchens, dining rooms and private terraces with pools.

3. The Mirage Hotel & Casino

One of the best kid-friendly hotels on the Las Vegas Strip is The Mirage Hotel & Casino, which features a kid-friendly pool with waterfalls and lagoons, a BEATLES-themed Cirque du Soleil show, and the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat, the latter of which is a wildlife and marine life attraction launched by famed Vegas duo Siegfried and Roy. More than two dozen restaurants are located at the resort, a number of them offering kids’ meals.

4. New York-New York Hotel and Casino

It’s hard to miss the New York-New York Hotel and Casinoit’s the resort with a miniature replica of the State of Liberty and the high rises of Manhattan outside its doors! You may also recognize the fast-moving roller coaster (appropriately named The Big Apple Coaster) whizzing in and out of the hotel. Other family-friendly perks include Hershey’s Chocolate World, an arcade, a large resort pool, and a dozen restaurants serving up dishes kids love.

5. The Venetian Las Vegas

This luxurious kid-friendly hotel in Las Vegas paints a picture of Venice, complete with working gondolas along blue canals that run in and out of the expansive resort. The Venetian Las Vegas is also home to a five-acre rooftop pool deck, secluded from the bustle of Vegas and providing three swimming pools and a cafe. Kids may also enjoy Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, as well as traveling shows. More than 20 restaurants, as well as a connection to additional restaurants at its sister property, The Palazzo, means families may never even have to step foot outside the resort.

The sister resort of The Venetian, The Palazzo Resort Hotel & Casino allows families to enjoy all the spoils of the larger resort, with additional amenities and goodies reserved just for them. The Palazzo’s massive pool deck features seven outdoor swimming pools (with lifeguard supervision), as well as the additional five-acre pool deck at The Venetian. The Palazzo features 11 restaurants, and connects to its sister’s 20-plus restaurants via an indoor shopping area.

7. Wynn Las Vegas

Anchoring the heart of the Strip are the twin golden towers of the Wynn Las Vegas and its sister, Encore Las Vegas. The upscale properties are perfect for families seeking a more discreet vacation and like things on the quiet, tamer side. What we love about the Wynn is it separates its multiple swimming pools into hidden oases—if one is too crowded for your taste, simply work your way to the next. Moms and dads who enjoy the finer things shouldn’t miss the shopping here, with names like Chanel, Dior, Manolo, Hermes and Piaget among the offerings.

8. MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

One of the most iconic properties on the Las Vegas Strip, the neon green-lit MGM Grand first appeared in 1993 as the largest casino resort, setting the stage for others to try to emulate its size. The massive resort features five outdoor swimming pools with waterfalls and rivers spanning more than six acres. Nearly 7,000 rooms are available here, along with more than two-dozen restaurants and eateries, including a food court for quick bites.

9. Desert Rose Resort

For those who want to stay away from the strip, the Desert Rose Resort can be found on backstreets and allows families to enjoy the desert without all of the glitz and glam of the casino area. The hotel is a Wyndham property and provides one- and two-bedroom, condo-style suites at a fraction of the price of casino rooms. Each suite features fully equipped kitchens, living and dining areas, and separate bedrooms. A traditional hotel swimming pool is a quiet reprieve, and if you do decide to jump into the fray, the hotel is just 1.5 blocks from the strip.

10. Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa

Leave the strip behind and enjoy the desert at the Red Rock Casino Resort, which is a 20-minute drive from the main drag of Las Vegas. (A free shuttle will get you there if you miss it.) This kid-friendly hotel in Las Vegas offers a Kids Quest kids’ program, bowling alley, and movie theater! But the best perk is its location near Red Rock Canyon, where you can hike and horseback ride your way across picture-perfect scenery.
