A Long Way From South Beach: Delano Opens in Las Vegas

THEHotel of Mandalay Bay Resorts finds new footing as the newly refurbished, redesigned, and re-branded Delano Las Vegas, bringing South Beach style and luxury to the strip.

In a collaboration between MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group, THEHotel at Mandalay Bay has been transformed and redesigned into Delano Las Vegas, bringing the branding and name made famous by the original South Beach institution designed by Phillipe Starck to sin city.

As a standout on the strip as a non-smoking and non-gaming hotel, the Delano strives to offer high quality service and luxury for discerning guests. Boasting some of the largest rooms in Las Vegas, the all suite hotel also features world class dining, spa services, as well as a room service menu and dedicated concierge service for pampered pups traveling with their savvy humans.

Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the entrance of Delano was designed to be a dazzling experience stone and marble, the centerpieces of which are a 10 foot tall split boulder sourced from the Nevada desert, and a hanging stone installation by Korean artist Jaehyo Lee. The yellow, orange, and grey color pallate of the rocks are found throughout the hotel, creating a cohesive mood and desert energy within the grand spaces.

Most rooms offer gorgeous views of the city, and each feature a separate living area for entertaining or meetings. Classic pure white linens and signature Delano window sheers add to the understated luxury of the bedrooms, in striking contrast to the large, black marble bathroom areas.  Neutral desert tones and plush furniture create a sleek, sophisticated, yet comfortable appeal in the living spaces.

While taking cues from it's sister hotel in South Beach, Delano Las Vegas has brought something original to a city that despite it's risque repute, can be predictable. Dedication to detail, commitment to quality, and a clear design vision make the strip's newest addition a true gem in the bejeweled city of lights.
