If you MUST go to Vegas…if you really, really have to go…then it’s worth your time to check out the Artisan Hotel. It’s a non-gaming hotel of only 64 rooms, but the decor is decadent and Gothic.
From the art on the walls, and even on the ceiling, to the furniture and the unique bar, your senses will reach Goth overload (if there is such a thing!)
Every room is unique, and decorated with a different artist’s work.
Don’t expect luxury though. The Artisan is an odd combination of the unique and the kitsch, if that’s possible. The art you will see on the ceiling and up and down the halls are almost entirely inexpensive reproductions of old masters. But the collection is still quite amazing.
There isn’t really anything like it in all of Vegas.
The fountain in the lobby.
Definitely over-the-top, the decorators of the Artisan decorated with a let’s-use-every-idea-we-have motif. So everywhere you look is something different, keeping your eyes busy taking it all in.

The pool is apparently “tops optional.” We did not see these ladies when we visited, but the front desk might let you know when they will be sunbathing.
