Travel: Casino-Free Vegas

Article excerpt

There comes a moment for most Vegas visitors when the jingle jangle of a jackpot just jangles the nerves. But where can a person wanting peace find it along the famously boisterous Strip? This is, after all, the city that invented the walk-through-the-casino-first approach to bathroom placement. These four hotels, all on or near Las Vegas Boulevard, remarkably offer casino-free lobbies and soothing rooms for a truly restful night's sleep.
