About this Hotel

Price From $69

There's nothing particularly flashy about the 500 rooms recently added to the 25-story Rush Tower annex of downtown Las Vegas's largest hotel—and that's precisely the point. Instead of piling on faux-glamorous touches, the extension aims for no-nonsense comfort (pillow-top mattresses, down comforters, rooms that are 20 percent larger) and a clean-lined, contemporary style that incorporates brown-leather couches, dark-wood accents, and marble baths. Of course, Vegas is nothing without a little splash, which the tower's bi-level infinity pool, adjacent to a 200,000-gallon shark tank, supplies in spades.
