An elegant respite along the bustling Las Vegas strip
City | Desert | Spa
Nestled at the centre of the infamous Las Vegas Strip, this 47-storey, free-standing hotel offers views over the city and out to the Nevada desert, a barren contrast to the hotel’s triple 5-star luxury. From the snapping of cards in a Vegas poker hall to the toilets at Main Street Station, mounted on a piece of the Berlin Wall, Las Vegas houses a myriad of attractions to surprise even the most resolute of cynics. Just a ten minutes’ drive away from McCarran International Airport, it’s also well positioned for getting in and out.
Rooms, done up in the signature Mandarin Oriental black and gold, are a considered departure from the bright neon of Las Vegas. All come with city views and floor-to-ceiling windows but look for ones with sightlines of the Strip, including the half scale Eiffel Tower, illuminated by dazzling light shows. Thankfully, windows come with thick curtains. To get into the Vegas spirit, book into a suite on the higher floors with features such as sunken baths and dark wood furnishings.
The hotel’s signature dining experience, Twist, is Pierre Gagnaire’s American offering. Having garnered three Michelin stars for his Paris restaurant, Gagnaire has brought his particular take on classic French cuisine to Vegas, receiving the coveted Forbes Five Star award in 2015. For a more relaxed ambience, the MOzen Bistro serves a range of specialty Asian dishes from carefully spiced Indian delicacies to an impressive sushi bar. A particular favourite is the Thai green shrimp curry and the brunch bento boxes.
Focusing on creating a relaxed ambience while maintaining touching distance with the Las Vegas Strip, the hotel features an abundance of facilities designed to make your stay as relaxing as possible. Tuck into scones, cupcakes and macaroons in the Tea Lounge, or sip on cool cocktails in the Mandarin Bar or Pool Café. Take things even further with a treatment in the hotel’s spa or get your heart rate back up again in the hotel’s fitness centre and gym.
