10 Las Vegas Hotels for People who Love Travel

Las Vegas – the world’s capital of fun – is undoubtedly a must-visit destination for all travelers. Here you won’t only get a chance to party all night long, play games in hundreds of casinos and have fun in many amazing shows, but also explore the surrounding areas as well. In fact, there are some pretty cool things you can do around, which don’t necessarily include gambling.

However, if you really want to get everything possible from your visit to Vegas, you need to spend a few days there. And this won’t happen if you don’t book hotels! Therefore, bellow we share a list of our favorite top 10 Las Vegas hotels you should book for your weekend’s trip. It won’t only let you enjoy the city that truly never sleeps, but also relax a bit since these picks are easy on your wallet too.

1. Bellagio Las Vegas

We just can’t talk about hotels in Vegas and not mention this world-known hotel, pictured in many movies and considered as one of the symbols of the city. The Bellagio is truly one of the first hotels you should consider booking for your weekend’s stay, and there are no reasons why not: Fantastic location with breathtaking views from rooms, perfect service, and the overall feeling that you are treated the best will never abandon you.

2. The Mirage Hotel & Casino

Another hotel we would love to offer you is The Mirage Hotel & Casino, located almost in the heart of Las Vegas. Surrounded by two other pretty famous hotels, Caesar and the Treasure Island, and with the Venetian and Palazzo directly across the street, this hotel stands out thanks to the room rates, which will be easy to afford for sure.

3. The Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino

Cheap hotels in Las Vegas can always be your top priority, but if you are planning to stay at Vegas only for a few nights and want to pamper yourself seriously – choose the Palazzo! It is one of the legendary sites in the area, well-known for excellent quality and price balance. Suites are huge, pool area is enormous, but one thing which won’t be tremendous will be the bill since a weekend for two here should be around $206!

4. Vdara Hotel & Spa

Another hotel we would really love you to try out is Vdara Hotel and Spa, which stands out from the crowd thanks to its unique interior. Huge, open rooms and modern design create a very sophisticated feeling everyone will love. It doesn’t have a casino in the building, so if you are coming to Las Vegas not just for gambling, Vdara is perfect for you.

5. Golden Nugget Hotel

This is one of the priciest hotels on this list (however, still relatively cheap), hence Golden Nugget indeed is worth the golden title in its name. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and don’t cost that much if you think about the value. Naturally, the hotel is equipped with many great must-have Las Vegas features like a huge pool, casino and many bars and restaurants, so there might not even be a need to leave for a while – the hotel has it all. Prices for a weekend here vary around $244 for two people.

6. Mandarin Oriental

One of our personal favorites is the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas. Why is it our top pick? Well, first of all, because we love eco-friendliness and we try to be as green as we can, and in fact Mandarin is well known as one of the greenest hotels you can spend a night at! Second of all, we just love the interior of it. Third, the location is also fantastic – it is surrounded by many attractions suitable for all kinds of travelers’ taste. So, hop in, get ready to pay around $279 and enjoy your weekend in Las Vegas!

7. Venetian Resort Hotel Casino

Yet another iconic hotel you should consider choosing for your weekend at Vegas is the Venetian. Many people find this hotel being one of the most beautiful ones in the whole city and this is easy to understand once you come into the lobby of it. After all, it is decorated keeping up with Italian, and in particular, Venetian style elements so if you love Italy, but equally love Vegas – the Venetian is the one. Good news is that weekend here will cost you around $249!

8. New York – New York Hotel and Casino

Once we started talking about hotels in Vegas which were designed to celebrate one or another place, we had to mention the hotel that was built keeping NYC in mind – hence, New York Hotel and Casino is our 8th pick. Ideally located, sophisticated and equipped with amazingly friendly staff – what else can you wish for from a hotel? The weekend at this hotel for two will cost you only $150!

9. Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard

Another hotel, which is well located and can amaze you with its excellent price and quality is Hilton Grand Vacations on the Boulevard. It is surely one of the best choices for budget-caution travelers since a weekend here will need just $169 from your wallet – that is not that much to leave! Furthermore, after reading reviews online about this hotel, one thing comes clear: People do love it since it is a little bit further away from all the buzz of Las Vegas, yet still comfortably close to all the stores and clubs and casinos (hotel doesn’t have a casino in its building). Excellent choice indeed!

10. Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino

And the last hotel we would like to recommend you is Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. It is one of those hotels that is worth the title of having the best value for money. Rooms here are spacious, clean, service is excellent, and it has everything you might be looking for in a hotel. Here you will find great places to eat, drink, have fun and relax. Moreover, Mandalay is just around 5 minutes away from one of the airports in Vegas, so if you are a total newbie in town, you won’t have to wander around trying to reach the hotel you book. Finally, a weekend here would cost you $145, which is the smallest price range on this list!

How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

How to Stop Procrastinating: 11 Practical Ways for Procrastinators

You have a deadline looming. However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums. You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.

We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing them till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.

The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle. Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again. It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

Don’t let procrastination take over your life. Here, I will share my personal steps on how to stop procrastinating. These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:

1. Break Your Work into Little Steps

Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time. If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further. Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple that I might as well just do it now!”.

For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life). Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming. However, when I break it down into phases such as –

  • (1) Research
  • (2) Deciding the topic
  • (3) Creating the outline
  • (4) Drafting the content
  • (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10,
  • (6) Revision
  • (7) etc.

Suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases. When it’s done, I move on to the next.

2. Change Your Environment

Different environments have different impact on our productivity. Look at your work desk and your room. Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep? If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace.

One thing to note is that an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

3. Create a Detailed Timeline with Specific Deadlines

Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate. That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back, until it’s too late.

Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.

My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

4. Eliminate Your Procrastination Pit-Stops

If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy to procrastinate.

Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible. Disable the automatic notification option in your email client. Get rid of the distractions around you.

I know some people will out of the way and delete or deactivate their facebook accounts. I think it’s a little drastic and extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods, but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

5. Hang out with People Who Inspire You to Take Action

I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing. The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs or Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies — The Hidden Power of Every Single Person Around You

Identify the people, friends or colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters and hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too.

As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email and social media. It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

6. Get a Buddy

Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals, it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other.

I have a good friend whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

7. Tell Others About Your Goals

This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects.

For example, sometimes I announce my projects on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

8. Seek out Someone Who Has Already Achieved the Outcome

What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

9. Re-Clarify Your Goals

If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.

Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break or staycation will do too) and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve? What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take? Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

10. Stop Over-Complicating Things

Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time. If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything.

Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

11. Get a Grip and Just Do It

At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing, planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen. Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

Reality check:

I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on, if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.
