Hotel ZaZa has the most personality of any hotel in town. Chic, swanky and sophisticated, but with a nice twisted sense of humor. From the award-winning Dragonfly restaurant to the over-the-top monthly Sunday School Brunch with costumed characters, glow sticks and a DJ, staying here is like living in a never-ending party. But once the party’s over, the rooms are luxurious beyond belief, whether you’re in a standard room or one of their tastefully restrained theme suites (maybe not including the Shagadelic above, or the one with the stripper pole). A fitness center and full-service spa keep you active then relaxed.
Room Rates: $230 and up
What Makes It Great: The outdoor pool and bar is party central almost every night of the year and a fun place to see and be seen.
