These were 2016's Most-Instagrammed Hotels
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—unless it was captured on Instagram. We’ve rounded up the most-Instagrammed hotels in 2016, and half of them are classic Las Vegas properties like Caesar’s Palace and the MGM Grand. Honestly, we’d gladly stay at any of these hotels. There’s a reason they’ve been grammed so many times: They’re all fine locations and make for perfect accommodations. When you’re traveling in 2017, be sure to geotag your photos with specific locations, tag your photos with #traveldeeper, and check back at the end of the year to see if you’ve visited or stayed at any of the most-Instagrammed places in the world.

    10. The Venetian Macao
    Gambling is illegal all over China with the exception of the autonomous region of Macao. Millions of people flock to the island’s Cotai neighborhood to try their luck at over 30 casinos, making Macao’s gambling scene roughly five times more profitable than in Las Vegas. The Venetian Macao is the area’s largest casino—which is probably why it was the 10th most Instagrammed hotel in the world.

    8. Wynn Las Vegas

    7. Fontainebleau Miami Beach
    Built in the 1950s, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel has developed a rich history in the area. When it first opened, it was the largest hotel in South Florida. For 25 years it operated without any signage because it was so well-known. In 2012, the hotel was awarded as the Top Building in Florida by the American Institute of Architects.

    6. Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
    For those of us living in the United States, a trip to Las Vegas is much more affordable than a flight to Paris—which may be why you’ll find so many photos on Instagram of Paris Las Vegas Hotel’s Eiffel Tower replica. The French-inspired decor lets you treat yourself to a Parisian-like experience without the price tag.

    5. Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas
    Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas is still reaping the benefits of its prominence in the movie The Hangover back in 2009. Visitors often ask for the Hangover suite (spoiler: it doesn’t exist) and quote the movie’s main character Allen, played by Zach Galifianakis, when checking in by asking if Caesar ever lived at the hotel. All jokes aside, the Roman-themed hotel earned its popularity long before it became a movie set.

    4. Atlantis The Palm, Dubai
    The suites at Atlantis The Palm in Dubai are among the hotel’s main attractions. The underwater suites will run you $18,000 per night to essentially sleep in an aquarium. If you’re not quite ready to splurge on an under-the-sea experience, most of the suites and deluxe rooms offer views of the Arabian Sea and the Dubai skyline.

    3. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
    Every room at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has a balcony, making it a good place to stay when you’re looking for Instagrammable views of the Strip. The hotel was designed to be condos at first so it lacks the theme that most other hotels in the area have, but many guests prefer its modern design and spacious rooms to those of its competitors.
