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.

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

We all have them—those hurtful, frustrating, offensive, manipulative people in our lives. No matter how hard we try to surround ourselves with positive and kind people, there will always be those who will disrespect, insult, berate, and misuse you if we allow them to.

We may, for a variety of reasons, not be able to avoid them, but we can determine how we interact with them and how we allow them to interact with us.

So, how to take control of your life and stop being pushed around?

Learning to set clear firm boundaries with the people in our lives at work and in our personal lives is the best way to protect ourselves from the negative effects of this kind of behavior.

What Boundaries Are (And What They’re Not)

Boundaries are limits

—they are not threats or ultimatums. Boundaries inform or teach. They are not a form of punishment.

Boundaries are firm lines—determined by you—which cannot be crossed by those around you. They are guidelines for how you will allow others to treat you and what kind of behaviors you will expect.

Healthy personal boundaries help protect you from physical or emotional pain. You may also need to set firm boundaries at work to ensure you and your time are not disrespected. Don’t allow others to take advantage of your kindness and generosity.

Clear boundaries communicate to others that you demand respect and consideration—that you are willing to stand up for yourself and that you will not be a doormat for anyone. They are a “no trespassing” sign that makes it very clear when a line has been crossed and that there will be consequences for doing so.

Boundaries are not set with the intention of changing other people. They may change how people interact with you, but they are more about enforcing your needs than attempting to change the general behavior and attitude of others.

How to Establish Boundaries and Take Control of Your Life

Here are some ways that you can establish boundaries and take control of your life.

1. Self-Awareness Comes First

Before you can establish boundaries with others, you first need to understand what your needs are.

You are entitled to respect. You have the right to protect yourself from inappropriate or offensive behavior. Setting boundaries is a way of honoring your needs.

To set appropriate boundaries, you need to be clear about what healthy behaviors look like—what healthy relationships look like.

You first have to become more aware of your feelings and honest with yourself about your expectations and what you feel is appropriate behavior:

  • Where do you need to establish better boundaries?
  • When do you feel disrespected?
  • When do you feel violated, frustrated, or angered by the behavior of others?
  • In what situations do you feel you are being mistreated or taken advantage of?
  • When do you want to be alone?
  • How much space do you need?

You need to honor your own needs and boundaries before you can expect others to honor them. This allows you to take control of your life.

2. Clear Communication Is Essential

Inform others clearly and directly what your expectations are. It is essential to have clear communication if you want others to respect your boundaries. Explain in an honest and respectful tone what you find offensive or unacceptable.

Many people simply aren’t aware that they are behaving inappropriately. They may never have been taught proper manners or consideration for others.

3. Be Specific but Don’t Blame

Taking a blaming or punishing attitude automatically puts people on the defensive. People will not listen when they feel attacked. It’s part of human nature.

That said, you do not need to overexplain or defend yourself. Boundaries are not open to compromise.

Sample language:

Advertising

  • “You may not…yell or raise your voice to me…”
  • “I need…to be treated with respect…”
  • “It’s not okay when…you take things from my desk without asking…”
  • “I won’t…do your work…cover for you anymore…”
  • “It’s not acceptable when…you ridicule or insult me…”
  • “I am uncomfortable when…you use offensive language”
  • “I will no longer be able to…lend you money…”

Being able to communicate these without sounding accusatory is essential if you want others to respect your boundaries so you can take control of your life.

4. Consequences Are Often Necessary

Determine what the appropriate consequences will be when boundaries are crossed. If it’s appropriate, be clear about those consequences upfront when communicating those boundaries to others.

Follow through. People won’t respect your boundaries if you don’t enforce them.

Standing our ground and forcing consequences doesn’t come easily to us. We want to be nice. We want people to like us, but we shouldn’t have to trade our self-respect to gain friends or to achieve success.

We may be tempted to let minor disrespect slide to avoid conflict, but as the familiar saying goes, “if you give people an inch, they’ll take a mile.”

It’s much easier to address offensive or inappropriate behavior now than to wait until that behavior has gotten completely out of hand.

It’s also important to remember that positive reinforcement is even more powerful than negative consequences. When people do alter the way they treat you, acknowledge it. Let people know that you notice and appreciate their efforts.

Final Thoughts

Respect is always a valid reason for setting a boundary. Don’t defend yourself or your needs. Boundaries are often necessary to protect your time, your space, and your feelings. And these are essential if you want to take control of your life.

Start with the easiest boundaries first. Setting boundaries is a skill that needs to be practiced. Enlist support from others if necessary. Inform people immediately when they have crossed the line.

Don’t wait. Communicate politely and directly. Be clear about the consequences and follow them through.

The better you become at setting your own boundaries, the better you become at recognizing and respecting the boundaries of others.

Remember that establishing boundaries is your right. You are entitled to respect. You can’t control how other people behave, but you do have control over the way you allow people to treat you.

Learning to set boundaries is not always easy, but with time, it will become more comfortable. You may eventually find that boundaries become automatic and you no longer need to consciously set them.

They will simply become a natural extension of your self-respect.
