Another honeymoon question.

We are planning on spending Xmas week (2012) in Vegas. Were first timers and so lost as to which hotel to stay in. Have heard of bellagio and Venetian and the Wynn (these are our top three purely on names) but the highest position on this is #9 (encore at Wynn). Budget is not a problem (trip of a lifetime) and really wanna feel like celebs.

Also any recommendations for dinner on Xmas day. Thinking top of the world?

I know it's a long way away but we wanna book Jan(ish) and I like to research a lot. :-)

Thanks in advance.

Some links to get you started. One is a map that shows you where all the casinos are located (FYI, the strip is about 4 miles long from Mandalay Bay to Strat).

Generally speaking, booking a hotel room in Vegas in January for a December trip is too far in the future. The best deals usually are given a few months out. Since this is your honeymoon, I understand the desire to book early. Book directly with the hotel - not a 3rd party. This will allow you to cancel and rebook if you find a better price (or if you decide you want to stay at a different hotel). Keep watching room rates and discount codes (smartervegas & early vegas) even after you have your room booked.

Thanks for the tips guys will keep an eye on those websites.

Any recommendations for hotels. Are the top ten on the website really the top ten or should we go with the ones we know?

If you want Luxury, I'd focus on: Wynn, Encore, Cosmopolitan, Venetian, Palazzo, Belliagio, Mandalay Bay.

The next level down (but still very nice), I'd look at: Mirage, Aria, Paris, Ceasers Palace, Golden Nugget (downtown)

Upper mid-Teir: MGM Grand, Ballys, Monte Carlo, Treasure Island.

On the list above, I have only stayed in the GN and Ballys (though I have visited all of them), mainly due to our preference to stay at more "value" properties so that we have more $$$ to spend. Though the places we stay are are perfectly fine, they will not have the "WOW" factor you are looking for on your honeymoon.

Since I like staying center-strip, my choice would probably be Bellagio, with a lake front view.

Top of the World is an excellent restaurant and it rotates so you can get views of all of Las Vegas whle dining.
