Be aware that construction activity is going at full force to bring the Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay to life on Sept. 1, 2104. Many of the resort's amenities -- including 3940 Coffee and Tea, Della's Kitchen and Franklin -- are expected to open then.Look for the graceful towers of glittering gold and you'll spot Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay. It soars 43 stories above the southern end of the Strip. Formerly THEhotel, it's undergone a massive renovation that's touched almost every aspect of the property. Known for providing a boutique experience, Delano Las Vegas oozes style and sophistication. From the moment you pass through the dramatic stone entryway, your eyes will take in beautiful sights that offer a sense of serenity and harmony. A wood-slatted gate. A massive divided boulder. White sheers dropping from the ceiling in columns. As you head toward the registration desk, following a hallway of black matte stone where an ethereal light pours in, you'll know you're not in Kansas anymore.  A non-smoking resort, Delano Las Vegas has 1,117 one-bedroom suites, each measuring at least 725 square feet. The white décor creates the feeling of a serene oasis. Among the amenities are 46-inch flat-screen Samsung TVs, media hubs, Keurig coffeemakers and spa-style baths.A wonderful culinary and nightlife experience awaits you at Mix restaurant and lounge, set atop the Delano Las Vegas. Internationally acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse is the man behind its nouveau French menu, which includes classic Franco-American dishes with global accents, like the seared duck foie gras, lobster Caesar salad and pepper-crusted bison tenderloin. Delano Las Vegas also features a unique "coffee retreat" called 3940 Coffee and Tea. Open from the morning 'til the wee hours, you'll discover everything from breakfast and afternoon tea to wine and tapas. Two items not to be missed are the croissant/donut and the Nutella and raspberry crêpes.Della's Kitchen, located near the lobby, has a farmhouse-meets-urban kitchen atmosphere. It serves a blend of decadent comfort food and healthy specialties utilizing locally sourced ingredients. In addition to a fresh juice program, Della's Kitchen has its own greenhouse so the salads -- like the Tuscan kale -- are truly fresh and inspired. Other signature dishes include the carne asada huevos rancheros, the duck panini and the braised kurobuta pork shank.Franklin, the lobby bar, is another distinctive venue in Delano Las Vegas. With its charming firefly light installation hanging above, you'll be more than happy to sit back and sip on creative craft cocktails or savor small bites like Cubano sliders. In late-night hours the vibe at Franklin transforms into a club-like atmosphere with DJs spinning eclectic beats.When you're ready to pamper yourself from head to toe, the Bathhouse Spa has 12 treatment rooms, exotic baths, pools of varying temperatures and a lovely waterfall. Massages, facials and body wraps are among the services offered. Showcased on the menu is a collection of "Global Journeys," exquisite rituals from far-off places like India and other countries in Asia.Guests of Delano Las Vegas will always have complete access to Mandalay Bay, the massive 3,309-room resort that directly adjoins it, via a hallway that exits into the Mandalay Bay Theatre's lobby. Its convenience for businesspeople is unrivaled -- as the Mandalay Bay Convention Center boasts 1.7 million square feet of meeting space. Delano Las Vegas is also within walking distance of a premium retail complex (The Shoppes at Mandalay Place), a diverse collection of trendy restaurants and bars (from Fleur by Hubert Keller and RM Seafood by Rick Moonen to Eyecandy and the House of Blues) and a number of major tourist attractions (Shark Reef). Plus, afternoons can be spent soaking up the sun at Mandalay Bay Beach, an 11-acre paradise-like pool complex, Moorea Beach Club or Daylight Beach Club.Connected to one of the busiest and most multifaceted properties in Las Vegas, Delano Las Vegas provides the best of all worlds for upscale leisure and business travelers -- peace and comfort in an exclusive setting with easy access to all the action the city is celebrated for. Noted for its high standards in design and guest indulgence, Delano Las Vegas is the epitome of modern luxury in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

THE HOTEL not my favorite
PostedMay 18, 2013
I've been to Vegas six times in the last eight years. In order I've stayed at Circus Circus, New York, a couple Hilton times shares with friends, Bellogio, and The Hotel. I would stay at all the other before The Hotel again. Reasons: had to wait three hours for a room which has not happened at the other hotels, didn't know I had to pay a resort fee of 25.00 a day until I recieved my e-mail bill (only went to the pool one of the five days), to far off the strip. I would rather be closer to the center or maybe even downtown next time.

How far of a walk the casino?

I will be staying here soon and just want to know if the walk to the main Mandalay Bay building is long or not?
Yes and no. Now that I've stayed there i would say the walk is too far. Tie that together woth Mandalay Bay being at the far end of the strip I just found that I didn't like the location.
