Call it the Entertainment Capital of the World, Sin City, or the City of Lights. By any name, Las Vegas is one of the most beloved destinations in the United States. Some road-trippers stop here just to glimpse the world-famous shimmer of the Las Vegas Strip, illuminated by more than 12 million lights. Others are chasing a major windfall or the chance to see a larger-than-life show. No matter the reason you’ve decided to venture to this inimitable town in the desert, you’ll need somewhere to park your vehicle while you explore. Here are seven hotels with free parking and a host of other impressive features.
Polo Towers by Diamond Resorts
Located smack in the middle of the Strip, this 4.2-star guest rated property wins points for its glamorous, Tuscan-inspired decor and slick rooftop pool with killer city views. Though you’ll likely be lured by the many attractions just steps from the property, there’s a healthy list of on-site amenities to enjoy: a barbecue area, a fitness center, a hot tub, and an on-site hair and nail studio.
Choose from studios, one bedrooms, and two bedrooms, all with fully equipped kitchens and dining areas, along with balconies or terraces. It’s like having your own apartment in the middle of Vegas.

Downtowner Boutique Hotel
Located just a stone’s throw from the Fremont Street Experience, a five-block entertainment area, this newly renovated boutique spot gives off major mid-century modern vibes. It boasts a professional putting golf course, a fitness center, a fire pit, a sleek pool and lounge area, and even what the hotel describes as “Instagrammable art murals.”
Choose from one- or two-bedroom accommodations with TVs and internet access. With weekday stays as low as $25 (not including the $20 per night amenity fee), this Vegas hideaway is a steal.

Circus Circus Hotel Casino & Theme Park
You haven’t truly been to Vegas until you’ve stayed at Circus Circus Hotel, featuring much more than just a place to rest your head. It’s home to the Adventuredome, an all-ages theme park with 25 rides and rollercoasters, as well as The Midway, with arcade-style games and free circus acts performed daily.
With the infamous heat in Las Vegas, you’ll be glad you have access to a water park with two pools and a splash pad. And, of course, there’s the casino, where you can try your luck at slots or table games.

Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino
To be a mere block from the Strip, plan a stay at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, a gargantuan property that claims to have the most spacious rooms in Vegas as well as the top rated restaurant in town, Edge Steakhouse.
When you’re not out seeing the sights, you can take advantage of the long list of resort amenities, from in-room whirlpool tubs and an on-site casino to the ample pool area and more than a dozen dining options. Beds are either king or queen, giving you plenty of space to stretch out.
Not feeling in the mood to go out? Take advantage of free live entertainment every Friday and Saturday at the International Bar.

The Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas
A 5-star stunner that makes you feel like one of the rich and famous, this luxe casino hotel is located on the Strip adjacent to both Planet Hollywood and The Bellagio, two other big-name properties. Its interior is decidedly chic, with plenty of bold, artful touches throughout.
There are so many ways to relax here, from whiling away the hours in the sleek pool district to decompressing in the heavenly spa and hammam. You definitely won’t go hungry — there are 27 restaurants and bars on site serving a wide variety of cuisines. Just steer clear of the wedding chapel — unless last-minute Vegas weddings are your thing!

Serene, A Vegas Resort
A more low-key option than some of Vegas' bustling mega hotels, Serene, A Vegas Resort gives you a refreshing place to let your hair down away from all the craziness. Rooms feature queen or king beds and free WiFi, so you’ll have a comfy spot to decompress and hide away. The hotel is pet-friendly, a huge bonus if you’ve got Fido along for the trip.
When you need a break from the glitz and frenzy of the Strip (located just a mile away), soak in one of two pools or in the hot tub. Tip: Virgin Hotels Las Vegas (formerly Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas) is within walking distance, giving you an entertainment option if you don’t feel like making the trek to the Strip.

Three on-site restaurants will keep you fed, while a luxe spa and an outdoor pool with cabanas will help you destress. Pets are welcome here; there’s even a dog park!
