The Stardust was a outer-space-themed hotel and casino located where Resorts World is on the Strip in Winchester, Nevada. The hotel opened in 1958 and ran until 2006, when it closed and was later imploded in 2007 for the never finished Echelon Place. It was last owned by Boyd Gaming.

The Stardust was and still is considered a legend by long-time locals, as the casino hosted many popular shows and famous gamblers. It was dubbed "Queen of the Strip" throughout its history.

The resort and casino contained 1,552 rooms and a 85,000 square foot casino. It also had its own race and sports book, which was considered one of the best on the Las Vegas Strip. It was also known for its iconic roadside marquee, which stood at 188 feet and was designed by Bob Miller of Ad-Art. Also in the resort were two landscaped pools, a golf course, a wedding chapel, and a 25,000 square foot convention center.
