Needless to say, if a hotel is good enough for President Obama, it's good enough for us. And if the place also happens to offer some of the best rates in town — not to mention notable environmental policies — better yet! When the Commander-in-Chief came to Las Vegas to give a speech on energy policy, he and his entourage took up the entire second floor of this hotel. Fifteen minutes from the madness of the Strip, it features more than just eco-friendly design and an electric vehicle charging station. Prices are low, and the stylish, natural light-filled guest rooms and suites come with kitchenettes or full kitchens. Freebies include wired and wireless high-speed Internet, Rise: Breakfast Bar (muffins, fruit, signature sandwiches and more) and an evening food and beverage reception. There's even an intimate pool area, offering a pleasant alternative to the megaresort scene. On a related note: when President Obama stayed in Vegas on an earlier visit, he checked into Caesars Palace, which happens to be one of our previous year's value hotel selections. Do we know how to pick 'em, or what?
