Hilton has announced plans to rebrand the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas under its Waldorf Astoria brand from August.

In a press release the hotel group said that “Waldorf Astoria will assume full operation of the property with plans to re-imagine and renovate the hotel with brand touches and improvements”.

The move follows the recent sale of the hotel (and the adjacent residential units) by CityCenter, a subsidiary of MGM Resorts International for US$214 million to an undisclosed buyer.

Business Traveller reviewed the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas last year, with writer Jenny Southan calling the hotel “a sophisticated sanctuary for guests who want to get away from the madness of Las Vegas”.

Features include Adam D Tihany-designed interiors, Twist restaurant by three-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire, an outdoor swimming pool and 2,500sqm spa.

Commenting on the rebranding Martin Rinck, global head, Luxury and Lifestyle Group, Hilton  said:

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of a Waldorf Astoria in the western part of the US, and in the heart of such a dynamic, internationally beloved city like Las Vegas.

“Paired with the recently opened Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and the brand’s recently announced properties in San Francisco and Antigua, the signing of Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas builds on the brand’s exciting trajectory and impressive growth story.”
