The Las Vegas housing market is booming right now, drawing new residents from around the country each day. However, with median home prices hovering around record highs, it may be more financially sound to rent a condo or apartment — at least for now. And if you’re going to rent, might as well be close to the action, right? Check out some of the best Las Vegas luxury apartments on the Strip.

Elysian at The Palms
3850 W Nevso Dr
The Calida Group’s signature Elysian brand is responsible for some of the most lavish, eye-catching apartment complexes throughout the Las Vegas Valley. One of the latest, Elysian at the Palms, also happens to be incredibly close to the Strip. It’s not actually part of the Palms casino (which remains temporarily closed during the pandemic) but next door with a comfortable lot on the corner of Valley View and Flamingo.
The units are stylish and contemporary with a variety of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom designs available. You’ll love the matching quartz countertop and backsplash. Make a point to visit the Sky Lounge, a furnished mixed-use space with a patio for soaking in views of the Strip and Allegiant Stadium. That’s also where you’ll find the fitness center, massage rooms, tanning bed and a larger outdoor space overlooking Flamingo Road with the Rio in the background. The pool is tucked away in a serene, comfortable courtyard setting.
Elysian at Hughes Center
3768 Howard Hughes Pkwy
Another new Elysian property is just a mile east of the Strip on the corner of Sands and Paradise at Hughes Center. Choose from studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom floor plans with especially impressive corner units. A few balconies even have views of the currently under-construction MSG Sphere, sure to be a spectacular sight once the attraction is completed. Like all Elysian apartments, the units have sleek, modern furnishings and smart-home features. The spacious, sophisticated pool deck feels like it belongs in a boutique hotel and the fitness center is exceptionally large for an apartment property.
Green Leaf Lotus
3463 Procyon St
Located just west of the Strip in Chinatown, the Green Leaf Lotus apartment complex makes an immediate impression with a colorful exterior, bright lobby and luxurious amenities, including rooftop lounges where residents can soak in views of the Strip and surrounding neighborhoods. Floor plans range from studios to three-bedroom units with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and tall ceilings. Surf the web quickly with Google Fiber and enjoy the sun by a centralized resort-like pool with cabanas and a DJ booth. Green Leaf Lotus has a few dining spots on the ground floor, including Kame, one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas for Japanese omakase.
3150 W Twain Ave
Jade is all about premium, sophisticated living, just west of the Strip near Twain and Dean Martin. Choose from one, two or three-bedroom units in this stylish apartment complex with Strip, Downtown or mountain views. However, the two-room villas near the pool deck have the most wow factor.
Apartments feature quartz countertops, energy-saving stainless steel appliances, backlit vanity mirrors and smart technology with doorbell cameras, door/window sensors and mobile-phone integration. All units are pet-friendly with a dog park on the property. Ask about the availability of outdoor balconies, including a few wraparound options.
2629 Wyandotte St Suite 1
This apartment complex may have a relatively routine, motel-like exterior, but is a rewarding surprise on the inside with impressive upgrades and updated furnishings. The ground-floor units are especially nice with wood plank-style vinyl flooring. Residents appreciate the bright, contemporary decor and subtle touches, including white appliances and brushed-nickel light fixtures. There are three swimming pools on site, making it easy to take a dip and work on your summer tan. Wyandotte has a west-of-the-Strip location near Palace Station and AREA15.
Condos, condos, condos
Veer Towers, Turnberry Place, Turnberry Towers, Panorama Towers and Palms Place are among the Las Vegas high-rise condos most popular for subleasing. You’ll probably pay a little more in rent, but may receive a few extra perks in return. You’ll be closer to the Strip and likely have more luxurious amenities than the average apartment complex.
It’s not uncommon for utilities, including television and internet, to be included in the price. Of course, terms and conditions will vary. Try to avoid handshake deals and lock-in a reasonable long-term rental rate. Otherwise, you could be subjected to unexpected price hikes and the whims of the homeowner, who may want to reclaim their unit at any given time.
