1. Flamingo Las Vegas- Fun family hotel in Las Vegas
Starting at $35
The Flamingo has a cool, tropical vibe to it. There’s a huge pool, which any kid will love. There are shows and restaurants, but what makes the Flamingo a fun family hotel in Vegas is (surprise!) the flamingos. You’ll actually see more than just live flamingos in this 15 acre wildlife habitat. Enjoy exotic fish, birds, and Chilean Flamingos. Even better…it’s free 🙂

2. Mandalay Bay – Family hotel in Las Vegas

Mandalay Bay is a very stylish, beautiful hotel and is full of fun for the whole family. Mandalay hosts shows on site (such as a Cirque de Soleil), sports tournaments, a 12,000 seat complex for shows and events, and even has a music hall. The kids will especially love the Shark Reef Aquarium. Here, you’ll find thousands of animals such as sea turtles, sting rays, piranhas, and more.
Open seasonally is a giant pool, beach area and lazy river…the perfect way to relax in the middle of Vegas.
Whether you’re craving French, Italian, Irish, Mexican, burgers…or really anything else, Mandalay Bay is full of restaurants to choose from.
3. The Bellagio– nicer family hotel in Las Vegas
Starting at $140
The Bellagio is well known for its fountain show that performs every day. Seen at the end of the famous Ocean’s 11, these fountains are set to music and lights, creating a fun and mesmerizing experience for all ages. Its other popular site is the display of colorful glass hung on the ceiling. This is a gorgeous piece of art to walk through that the kids will love.
The glass is done by artist Dale Chihuly. You can see more of his work around the world, though the Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle is one of the more popular places to see it.
What makes this one of the best family hotels in Las Vegas? I’ll start with the pool. The pool here is huge, and beautiful. Actually, there are 4 outdoor pools, as well has a few hot tub/spas.
Hungry? Though there are almost 4,000 guestrooms, there are also 17 different restaurants to choose from. Whatever you feel like eating that day, you can find it at The Bellagio.
They even have a double-queen suite that can sleep up to 5 people, helping many families stay together in one unit.
Kids will love the little arcade, located a little behind the casino area. It’s smaller, but gives the kids a chance to get in on fun games that are kid-friendly.
Best of all, the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden is a free, 14,000 square foot attraction that you can walk through. Filled with plants and lots of color, this is a great attraction for kids in Las Vegas.
4. New York New York – Family hotels in Las Vegas
Starting at $42
The New York New York is a really exciting family hotel in Las Vegas. There is entertainment galore for all ages. To start, check out the Big Apple Coaster, available to anyone over 54″. This coaster goes almost 70 mph and has a 203 foot drop, perfect for any thrill seeker.
Need something for younger ones? Try the Big Apple Arcade. Full of fun for all ages, this arcade has all the typical arcade games (including skee-ball, my kids’ favorite).
Another great family-friendly things about New York New York is that it features shows that are family-friendly. For example, right now (year 2022) they are featuring a puppet and ventriloquy show which is listed as family-friendly.
It has the basic fun amenities as most hotels as well, such as a large beautiful pool and over 15 restaurants.
5. The Orleans – Family Hotel in Las Vegas
Starting at $36
The Orleans may be lesser heard of, but it’s a really fun hotel for families in Las Vegas. It is officially off the strip, but just about 2 miles away.
For instance, you can spend the day or evening at the bowling alley on site, hang out at the outdoor pool, grab a show in the showroom, or even catch a movie on the big screen in one of the 18 movie theaters!
Especially for kids, you’ll find an arcade that’s perfect for all ages. You can also take the kids to Kids Tyme* (temporarily closed as of Dec 2021) for a few kid-free hours. It’s a win-win, as your kids will have a great time playing, climbing, watching movies, playing at the kid arcade, crafting, and playing with Legos, all while being watched by their qualified staff.
*Kids Tyme is for kids ages 3-12 (potty trained, and fully immunized as required by law). Hourly charge applies and guardian must stay on grounds while child is checked-in.
6. The Excalibur – family hotel in Las Vegas
Starting at $21
The Excalibur makes a great selection as one of the family hotels in Las Vegas. It’s located right on the strip and full of fun activities. The 900-seat arena always has a show or event going on (right now as of writing, it’s dinner and a show of the Knights of King Arthur). For a more relaxing time, the family can hang out at the pool which is beside an outdoor bar & grill. Kids and adults will both find a thrill using the waterslide. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, so everyone can find something they like! Try an American classic at Johnny Rockets, or head to Baja Fresh, Italian, or another of the many choices.
Adults can take advantage of the fitness center, spa, golfing, and casino.
Family Hotel in Vegas Farther Off The Strip
7. Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa – family hotels in Las Vegas
Starting at $144
The Red Rock Casino Resort is not on the strip or even on Las Vegas Blvd. It’s a little drive to get to the strip. So if you’re looking to have some fun during the day and evening, but then get back to a little quieter atmosphere at bedtime, this is the perfect family hotel in Las Vegas. Just because it’s off the strip does not mean it isn’t incredibly fun, though!
At The Red Rock Casino Resort, you and the kids will love the amenities provided. Check out the on-site bowling alley and have a friendly game. Or go catch a movie on the big screen on site. Since it’s a little removed from the hustle and bustle of Vegas, you’ll also be able to have nearby hiking, biking, and mountain biking at the Red Rock Canyon Conservation area nearby.
Adults can enjoy the yoga or pilates classes, fitness center, and casino.
Everyone will fall in love with the huge, resort pool area, filled with cabanas and places to relax.
Top Family Hotels in Las Vegas
That’s the list! Did you find one that looks exciting? I’ll make a note before I say goodbye… I know Circus Circus is well known as one of the great family hotels in Las Vegas. However, during my research, I heard/saw/noted a few red flags where staying here was not recommended. Circus Circus is fun during the day, but was repeatedly noted as not being in the best part of town, and is a bit (a lot) more run down than in days past. That said, I know people who stayed here and thought it was fine! Do some research to see what is the best fit for your family. And Viva Las Vegas!
