Summer sizzles at the Stratosphere
The Stratosphere is offering deals hotter than the Sin City sun this summer, including enticing pool and room packages, ultra-affordable cabana rentals and a reverse happy hour in the sky.

Wetter just got better with resort's new pool and room packages, including half-price bottle service at the Level 8 Pool and 50% off cabana rentals.

Cabana rentals, too, are a steal this summer at the Stratosphere, starting at $50 (Monday through Thursday) for your own shaded poolside retreat featuring cable TV, a ceiling fan, fruit platter, two rental rafts, and food and beverage service. 

The Deluxe cabana package ($175 Monday through Thursday; $200 Friday through Sunday) includes all of the above plus suntan lotion, a giant beach ball, two appetizers and a 5-liter Heineken keg or a bottle of Absolut Vodka, two cans of Red Bull energy drink and two other mixes of your choice.


Stratosphere's Level 8 Pool is one of the only rooftop pools in town that nonhotel guests can enjoy for free. Featuring a 67,000-square-foot deck, hot tub and poolside café and bar, this no-cover-charge eighth-floor oasis now also offers Bikini Blackjack — a best-of-both-worlds combo of gaming thrills and beach-life chill.

Level 8 Pool also offers the best bottle-service pricing on the Strip (with two-for-one poolside service), plus special pool parties on holidays.

By night, the Reverse Happy Hour (10:30 p.m. to close) at Stratosphere's sky-high Level 107 lounge keeps the affordable fun going atop the Stratosphere Tower. Level 107 now also boasts deejays spinning from 11 p.m. to close, Wednesday through Saturday.

Back on the ground, “Get in on the Game” with Stratosphere’s blackjack jackpot promotion. Play blackjack and win cash every Saturday in June, when a $40 buy-in (for acePLAY rewards program members) gets gamers a chance at their share of the $2,500 pot.

All this, plus world-class entertainment from singer Frankie Moreno and the glamorous new “Pin Up” show featuring Playboy’s 2011 Playmate of the Year, Claire Sinclair, make Stratosphere a something-for-everyone destination this summer. Want more info? Check out the Stratosphere’s
