At the Stratosphere, things keep looking up. And up and up and up. The iconic Strip property now sparkles with new renovations that amount to a full-on reimagining
of a Vegas icon.
Take the rooms, for example. For their discriminating but value-conscious guests, operators of the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower aimed high in renovating 909 of the resort’s 2,427 guest rooms. The refreshed décor expertly layers colors, textures and details to create spaces that are all about comfort. Dubbed Stratosphere Select, these elegant new guest rooms all have high-quality king or double queen beds chosen to rival any resort experience. The rooms also boast flat-screen TVs and refreshed bathrooms, and they’re located on floors with redesigned elevator lobbies and hallways.
And don’t forget the views. These relaxing new rooms overlook either downtown Las Vegas, the Strip or the surrounding Las Vegas Valley.
The casino has upped its game as well. Stunning new décor, new carpet and just the right splash of color now set the stage for Stratosphere’s comprehensive selection of state-of-the-art games. The 80,000-square-foot casino features thousands of gaming options, including games not found at other Las Vegas Strip casinos. Of course, there are also all the top table games, along with a poker room and a race and sports book.
A new entrance to the casino features a sweeping indoor ramp that carries you to the hotel lobby and a plush new VIP check-in area. Valet parking has moved to a more convenient location on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Stratosphere’s restaurants have been expanded, too, and the resort’s innovative new bars and lounges have been reinvented to ignite the night.
Lauded master chef Rick Giffin works his magic at the renowned Top of the World restaurant, located on level 106 of the Stratosphere Tower. Heavy on deconstructed and reconstructed classics, the menu comes with a bonus: It’s your exclusive opportunity to be served in the only revolving restaurant in Las Vegas. Relax as you look over the extraordinary selections and enjoy the 360-degree view of the Strip and surrounding Las Vegas Valley.
No visit to Vegas is complete without some time spent in the Stratosphere Tower. Here, views of the Strip, downtown and the surrounding valley offer an unbeatable Vegas experience. Indoor and outdoor observation decks provide the city’s best opportunity to look down on the excitement and energy that comes from a place unlike any other in the world. At dusk, you can watch the lights of Las Vegas come alive from Air Bar on the 108th floor, the highest bar in Vegas. Just one floor down, the Level 107 Lounge features live music and an appetizer menu that segues perfectly into a spectacular dinner at Top of the World, which was just named “Best Restaurant” by Nevada Magazine.
Stratosphere Select and the other changes to the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower provide a combination of comfort, gaming, dining, nightlife, entertainment and thrills that continue to set it apart on the Las Vegas landscape. These changes leave the Stratosphere new — up, down and all around. Together, they offer fresh opportunities to elevate your expectations of an old Vegas friend.
