One of the original grand dames to grace the famous "Four Corners" of the Las Vegas Strip, Bally's Las Vegas has retained its classic Vegas appeal while adding contemporary amenities.
Bally's Plaza, a multimillion-dollar grand entry that whisks visitors from the Strip to the hotel's famous porte cochere via four 200-foot people movers, features eight miles of neon looped overhead, and a light, water and sound spectacle that must be seen to be believed.
Two 26-story hotel towers house 2,814 recently remodeled guest rooms and suites, which range in size from 900 to 2,600 square feet. On the eponymous floor, Bally's 22nd Club offers special guests private concierge services, complimentary breakfasts and evening cocktails. The Bally's Spa is a full-service health club featuring state-of-the-art fitness equipment, whirlpool spas, steam rooms and saunas, Vichy showers, hydrotherapy tubs and aesthetician treatment rooms.
The stadium-style race & sports book broadcasts racing and sporting events from around the world on several large screen TVs, and posts odds and accepts wagers on college and pro football, basketball, major league baseball and special events. Gaming enthusiasts can also try their luck at a $1,000 slot machine or at the craps table.
Dining options range from Asian (Chang's at Bally's) to Italian (Al Dente) to the traditional steak house (Bally's). The famously lavish Sterling Brunch has attracted repeat customers over the years.
For a true Vegas experience, Donn Arden's "Jubilee!" is a must. Beautiful showgirls reprise world-famous production numbers with lavish sets and spectacular choreography. Oh, and during the show, the Titanic sinking is re-enacted, a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers is performed, and the story of Samson and Delilah is acted out.
Other hotel amenities include Bally's Avenue Shoppes, a wedding chapel, beauty parlor, an oversized, heated pool and spa with private cabanas, and illuminated tennis courts and a pro shop.
