Catching Celebs in Las Vegas...

Las Vegas isn't just home to high rollers, but it is also the playground of the rich and famous. Celebrities make their way to the Nevada desert and escape to this oasis of fun all the time, staying and playing in some of the most spectacular resorts in the world.
Want to know who goes where? Katchmeinvegas.com is here to tell you the best hotels and hotspots to check out A-list talent, as well as the most luxurious hotels you can stay while trying to make it as a high-roller.

The Palms Casino Resort: One of the hottest places for celebrity-spotting in Las Vegas, The Palms has become a mecca for Hollywood's young and famous. Jessica Simpson and Gwen Stefani are recent celebrities who have experienced the hotel's hotspots, Ghostbar and Playboy Club. If you're looking for that type of action, just expect to stand in line for a while if you're not on somebody's "It" list.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino: If it's good enough for Justin Timberlake, it's good enough to be on this list of celebrity hangouts. The Hard Rock's main feature is the Beach Club, the hotel's pool area that is home to ultra-exclusive cabanas, beautiful people, swim-up blackjack and the most talked-about weekend party, Rehab. As the name suggests, Hard Rock also hosts some of the best concerts to make their way to Las Vegas. Afterwards, you can likely find them partying at Body English, the hotel's ultra-hip club.

Palazzo Casino Resort: The newest ultra-luxury resort on the Las Vegas Strip, Palazzo knows how to bring in celebrity clientele. Rap mogul Jay-Z owns the 40/40 Club within the hotel, while the high-end shops have drawn celebrities such as Rebecca Romjin and Nicolette Sheridan away from Rodeo Drive. Dining is a celebrity experience, as well, with chefs Emeril Lagasse, Wolfgang Puck and Mario Batali opening restaurants in this all-suites property.

The Mirage: In the ever-changing landscape that is the Las Vegas Strip, the Mirage may seem like a dinosaur. However, it has continually evolved and remains a top player in Sin City. Celebrities like Ray Romano, Fergie and Snoop Dogg have stayed at the home of the Strip's only man-made volcano recently. More have come to see Love, Cirque du Soleil's Beatles'-inspired production that has been a hit with Vegas visitors. And this hotel's pool remains one of the best in the city.

MGM Grand: While the regular visitors to this longstanding Strip property stay in guest rooms, celebrity VIPs head to The Signature and Skylofts - some of the most celebrated accommodations in Las Vegas. And A-listers like Tara Reid also play at this hotel, heading to the popular Studio 54 and Tabu after hours. MGM Grand also played host to country music star Carrie Underwood, who shot one of her recent music videos at the property.

Venetian: When it was the Sands back in Las Vegas' heydays, the Rat Pack held court on this fabled piece of real estate. Some of today's hottest celebrities are keeping that tradition alive. Wilmer Valderrama, Carson Daly and a host of MTV-generation superstars head to the Venetian to dine and party throughout the evening and early-morning hours at places like Tao, V Bar and La Scena. They also spend time and plenty of money at Grand Canal Shoppes within the resort and stay in the new all-suite Venezia Tower.

Caesars Palace: Caesars continues to shine on the Las Vegas Strip. With the most luxurious shopping (The Forum Shops), some of the biggest headliners (Celine Dion, Elton John, Cher) and the hottest nightlife (Cleopatra's Barge, Shadow: A Bar at Caesars and PURE), this property continues to bring in a who's who of celebrity party-goers, including Carmen Electra and (who else?) Paris Hilton.
