When you’re in full-on festival mode, you want the experience to continue after you’ve retired to your hotel room for a few hours of sleep. No one likes being rocketed back into the real world right after leaving the festival grounds.
Fortunately, this is Las Vegas. The party doesn’t have to stop until you’re back at your desk on Monday morning—if you plan on going back to work after three days of celebrating among the beautiful crowd.
But where do you stay? Which hotels are the perfect fit for your unique style of partying? As luck would have it, we can make a few recommendations—and if you take advantage of a hotel package, they come bundled with tickets for the ultimate value and convenience.
Purchase one package that has it all (including all taxes and fees). Choose two or four three-day GA or VIP tickets to the festival and three-night hotel accommodations—a room with one king bed or two beds. Plus, receive exclusive perks such as a swag package and poster for every person.
Time to Treat Yo Self
The Culinary Villages will be one of the biggest draws at Life is Beautiful, but if your hunger pains are sticking while you’re outside festival grounds, you can’t go wrong with Downtown’s Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. The resort is offering ticket and hotel packages that include a “Gold Value” coupon book with meal and cocktail deals. The Nugget is home to some of Fremont Street’s best restaurants, including Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse, Cadillac Mexican Kitchen, Red Sushi and Lillie’s Asian Cuisine. And if long hours in the sun take a toll on you, when it’s time to unwind you might consider a couple hours of relaxing spa treatment. The Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino is just a short walk east on Fremont Street from the Life is Beautiful festival grounds, and when you feel fully pampered, you can rejoin the party. Plus, there’s a Starbucks, in case you need a recharge of the caffeine variety.
For Strip Socialites
If you’re squeezing in a trip to the Strip during Life is Beautiful, you’d be wise to unpack your bags at SLS Las Vegas. It’s the perfect midway spot between Downtown and the brightest lights of the resort corridor, and it’s home to some Instagram-worthy venues, like the Living Room at the adjoining W hotel tower. Your ticket package even includes a limited-edition lineup poster and exclusive festival swag.
The Place to Be Seen
Just because you’ll be celebrating alongside todays’ biggest artists—the Weeknd’s, Florence’s, and Sofi Tukker’s of the world—doesn’t mean you won’t have time to stretch your legs and explore the nearby must-see spots in Downtown Las Vegas. Plaza Hotel and Casino has served as a rally point for Life is Beautiful fans for years, and was even the setting for 2017’s incredible Faile Art mural. Inside, the Plaza blends old school swagger with modern hipness, and has served as a filming location for everything from The Killers’ “The Man” video to Casino. This is the kind of place your favorite artists would hit up late at night because they, like you, are always looking for a good time.
