Try your hand at slots and table games in the Stratosphere Casino, or place a bet at the sports book (especially during basketball, football, and racing championship parties). If you don't hit it big, you can still earn your Sin City bragging rights by leaping from the top of your hotel and living to tell the tale: SkyJump, one of 3 onsite thrill rides, is a 108-story controlled freefall offering amazing aerial views of The Strip--if you can keep your eyes open.
Jumping off the tower isn't the only reason to head to the top. The revolving Top of the World restaurant, perched 1,000 feet above The Strip, completes a 360-degree turn every 80 minutes. This casual restaurant specializes in steak, seafood, and decadent desserts. If you just can't get enough seafood, head to the Stratosphere's buffet for all-you-can-eat shrimp and crab leg nights. You can also hear DJs spin nightly at lounges like the Air Bar and casino-level C Bar.
And when you're ready to take a break, there are dozens of ways to decompress. Work off that buffet dinner any time of the day at the 24-hour fitness center, schedule a massage or manicure at Roni Josef International Spa & Salon, or make the most of the Stratosphere's high real estate--head to the 8th-floor outdoor pool for swimming and sunbathing, or to take in a desert sunset.
Relaxing in your room is easy with 42-inch plasma TVs, pay movies, and wireless Internet access (surcharge). For entertaining groups, get a suite with a separate living room, wet bar, and refrigerator. Most rooms are outfitted with large windows offering stunning views of the Las Vegas Valley and The Strip.
