Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas to open in December

22 Jul 2009 by Mark Caswell

Mandarin Oriental
is set to unveil its sixth US property later this year, with the opening of a
392-room hotel located on “The Strip”.

The 47-storey
hotel will form part of the City Center complex, close to the Bellagio hotel. The
development is also set to feature The Aria Resort and Casino, The Harmon Hotel
and Spa, The Veer Towers (housing luxury condiminiums), and a retail and
entertainment district called Crystals.

The Mandarin
Oriental Las Vegas will feature a 23rd floor “Sky Lobby”, and eating options
including a signature restaurant, an all-day dining eatery, the Mandarin Bar, a
tea lounge, and a patisserie. There will be a two-level spa with 17 treatment
rooms, “multiple relaxation and water experiences” including two outdoor pools,
a fitness centre and a yoga studio. For meetings there will be 12,00 square feet
of function space, including the 7,650 square foot Oriental Ballroom on the
third floor.

As well as the
392 guest rooms, which will all feature walk-in closets, 42-inch TVs and a
further flastscreen TV embedded into the bathroom mirror, the property will
also house 227 residences occupying the top floors of the building. Unusually for
a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, the property will not feature gaming

Mandarin Oriental recently announced it would be opening a Heston Blumenthal restaurant at its Hyde Park property next year (see online news June 25), and has released concept images of the forthcoming Mandarin Oriental Moscow (see online news May 12).
