There is something special in Las Vegas, and it is the South Beach-inspired Delano Las Vegas. Transformed from the all-suite THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, Delano is the posh 43-story luxury hotel from MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group.
Located at the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, Delano Las Vegas is stylish, sophisticated and connected to Mandalay Bay via a hallway. The all-suite property was designed to replicate the service and style of the Delano South Beach and offers much larger and nicer than average rooms in Vegas.
Housing an astonishing 1,117 suites, Delano is one of the hotel within a hotel concept around the city and it has no casino facilities.
Although the non-smoking resort has undergone a massive renovation, Delano kept everything that you loved about THEhotel and merged it with a number of spectacular design features and opulent amenities.
The lobby décor celebrates the desert landscape and is all Southwestern with the artwork portraying classic desert roadside scenes. Inside the massive and dramatic stone entryway, cascading white sheers draped over pillars and warm woods will provide you with a sense of serenity and harmony.
Behind the front desk the golden fabric and black matte stones evokes the South Beach influence of the Delano Miami.
Compared to resorts like the 3,400 room Bellagio, the 6,852 room MGM Grand and the 4000 room Aria Resort and Casino, the resort is small. But despite the size, the rooms are on the larger side, starting at 725 square feet.
Delano offers seven types of suites, including King Suite, Queen Suite, King Strip View, Queen Strip View, Panoramic Suite, Penthouse Superior Suite and the Dog Friendly Suite.
The King Suite, Queen Suite, King Strip View and Queen Strip View suites all offer 725 square feet of well-designed space with clean color palette of whites, pops of gold and neutrals.
These suites all feature separate living areas, high speed wireless Internet, wet bars with fully stocked mini-bars, Samsung LCD HDTVs and your choice of either a king or two queen beds with premium bedding. The spacious bathrooms have spa-style baths, marble and granite surfaces, two vanity sinks and private water closets.
The 741 square foot Panoramic Suites offer private bedrooms with crisp white linens, separate living areas, fully stocked mini-bars, Malin + Goetz toiletries and stunning 180 degree views.
The sprawling Superior Suites feature dark wood floors, floor to ceiling windows, plush lounge seating, separate cocktail areas for entertaining, eight-seat wooden tables and beautiful lighting fixtures, which creates an elegantly sleek feel to the rooms.
The luxury bathrooms feature Malin + Goetz toiletries, marble showers, chenille robes and soaking tubs. You will also enjoy other amenities such as flat-screen Samsung TVs, Keurig coffeemakers and media hubs. The Dog friendly suites will offer you and your four-legged friends a range of luxury amenities including your own doggie delights menu.
The resort has its own private pool that embraces a laid-back South Beach atmosphere. The pool area is perfect for relaxing and catching some rays. Plus, you will be just a few steps from the world-famous aquatic playground at Mandalay Bay Beach.
For a little more relaxation, you can unwind at the Bathhouse Spa. The 14,000 square foot spa oasis features 12 treatment rooms, steam rooms, hot and cold plunge pools, and saunas as well as a treatment menu with body treatments, facials, massages, manicures and pedicures.
Food and Drinks
Dining at this Las Vegas luxury resort will be a real treat and will provide you with several options to choose from.
At the top of the hotel is the Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse restaurant, Mix at Delano, where a gourmet menu with strong French and American influences with global accents is offered. Breakfast and lunch are served at Della’s Kitchen.
This restaurant is the place where a historic farmhouse meets an urban restaurant and the menu offers upscale comfort food, seasonal specialties, sandwiches, burgers, hickory smoked salmon, Belgian waffles and other delicious treats.
The restaurant also has a fresh juice program. 3940 is a more casual option for dining. The comfortable retreat is the place where you can relax on mid-century modern furniture while savoring freshly squeezed juices, roasted gourmet coffees and artisanal teas.
At Delano, you can enjoy a club like ambiance with DJs spinning eclectic beats at Franklin. This chic lobby bar features a variety of cocktail tables, firefly light hanging from above and a classic feel.
The bar serves creative cocktails, Cubano sliders, a wide range of draft beer and its own barrel aged whisky. There is also the miX Lounge with its innovative bar menu with Sweet & Sour Duck Spring Rolls, Mini Beef Short Rib Tacos and exciting cocktails.
miX Lounge offers a lavish atmosphere that features dark brown faux leather and custom seats with aluminum tables. You will also be next to Mandalay Bay and all its dining offerings.
A Final Word
Settled just steps away from the fun, excitement and amenities of an expansive Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Delano is the boutique hotel within a hotel.
Without a cigarette, blackjack table, or slot machine in sight, the all-suite hotel offers a un-Vegas-like vibe, with its smoke-free luxury ambiance. The daily uplifting quotes, friendly service, suspended rock installation, and luxury amenities are the best features of Delano and will be different from anything you’ve experienced.
There’s not much in terms of entertainment, nightlife or dining at this hotel, but being connected to the huge and lively Mandalay Bay means you will have easy access to all of the resort’s shops, attractions, casino and world-class entertainment. You will also be less than a mile away, from the closest resort New York New York.
