THEhotel is being transformed into Delano Las Vegas. All of the rooms as well as the restaurants and lounge will be redesigned. Construction has begun and will be completed by September 2014. The resort will remain open throughout construction.THEhotel at Mandalay Bay is a graceful tower of glittering gold. It soars 43 stories above the southern end of the Strip. Connected to one of the busiest and most multifaceted properties in Las Vegas, it provides the best of all worlds for upscale leisure and business travelers -- i.e., peace and comfort in an exclusive setting with easy access to all the action the city is celebrated for.THEhotel offers 1,117 one-bedroom suites, each measuring at least 725 square feet. Elegantly appointed, they boast cool tiling with contemporary furnishings and artwork. Among the amenities are 42-inch plasma TVs, in-room safes, wet bars and work desks. The marble bathrooms have 15-inch LCD TVs, twin vanities, soaking tubs and separate glass-enclosed showers. All of this is enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase spectacular Strip, city and mountain views. THEhotel even has a selection of dog-friendly suites.By this fall these rooms will look entirely different. With renovations underway to transform THEhotel into Delano Las Vegas, all of the accommodations will be updated. Signature white décor will enhance light and create the feeling of a serene oasis. Guests will also enjoy many new amenities from 46-inch flat-screen Samsung TVs and media hubs to Keurig coffeemakers and Malin+Goetz bath products.A wonderful culinary experience awaits guests at Mix restaurant and lounge, set high atop the hotel tower. 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. In the winter of 2014/2015 after Delano Las Vegas opens, Mix restaurant will become Rivea (with Ducasse still at the helm), and serve a blend of French and Italian cuisines. Details about Mix Lounge's makeover are not yet available. Delano Las Vegas will transform the space that once housed a cafe to create 3940 Coffee + Tea, a 24-hour coffee bar that will also offer afternoon tea and wine and tapas in the evenings, and a farmhouse-meets-urban kitchen restaurant concept that features sustainable desert cuisine. The former lounge will also be remodeled and given a new name, Franklin. Franklin will have a sophisticated atmosphere with club-like elements, such as DJ-spun music.When you're ready to pamper yourself from head to toe, the Bathhouse Spa has 12 treatment rooms and houses exotic baths, pools of varying temperatures and a lovely waterfall. Among the services are an array of massages, facials, body wraps and signature experiences.The only facility not being transformed at THEhotel when it becomes Delano Las Vegas is the Bathhouse Spa. However, even this will get a new menu of treatments and signature services that will be available beginning in August 2014. This includes a collection of "Global Journeys," which will showcase exquisite rituals from far-off places like India and countries in Asia.Guests of THEhotel as well as 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 and box office. Its convenience for businesspeople is unrivaled -- as the Mandalay Bay Convention Center boasts 1.7 million square feet of meeting space. THEhotel is also within easy 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.Establishing high standards for design and guest indulgence, THEhotel -- and soon Delano Las Vegas -- are resorts that uniquely encompasses modern luxury in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

Great Hotel!
PostedSeptember 8, 2013
We loved being on the quiet end of the strip because it's very easy to walk to everything (there's a connecting walkway or tram all the way to the Excalibur hotel). The staff was very helpful and nice, the hotel itself is GORGEOUS. The room was great except a couple of little things that annoyed like an armrest came off on the chair & room looked a tad tad dated (nothing crazy, it's a really nice room); we were in 23-801 and the strip view was slightly blocked by the part of the hotel that juts out more in front. BUT we had a good view and for the price, $600 each for 4 nights hotel and flight, we are NOT complaining. Pool had no shade we burn easily so we went to the Aria Spa and for $35 each spent a great day there with some outdoor chairs and a little pool and indoor hot tubs and great amenities. All in all, I would definitely do it again! :)

Mere steps from the Las Vegas Strip, the 64-story Trump Hotel Las Vegas towers gracefully above all nearby buildings with a strong golden facade reflective of the richness of the iconic Donald J. Trump hotel collection.Stylish, classy and conveniently located, Trump Hotel Las Vegas takes comfort to the next level. The lobby is impeccably decorated with several plush places to sit and relax, including seating in the DJT bar. Personal service at the non-smoking, non-gaming property is second to none, starting at the valet and extending throughout a stay.Rooms in the all-suite Trump Hotel feature king-sized beds with Sterns and Foster mattresses and 500 thread count Bellini sheets, European-style kitchens and appointments by Wolf, Bosch, and Sub-Zero. The luxurious Italian marble baths are outfitted with twin sinks, custom vanities, marble counter tops, spa tubs and a 14-inch television embedded in the mirror.The modern American restaurant, DJT, offers a casual, yet elegant, fine dining experience for breakfast or dinner. The menu will tempt fine dining connoisseurs as well as novices, with both traditional and gourmet offerings. The wait staff and sommeliers are knowledgeable and attentive to their guest's every need. Several signature drinks tempt the palate, incorporating fresh ingredients like cucumbers and lemon.An extensive spa, fitness center and pool with poolside bar and bistro, H2EAU, round out the Trump Hotel Las Vegas experience. Adjacent to the property is the trendy Fashion Show Mall, while the fast-paced action at Las Vegas Strip is just a short walk away.- By Aleza Freeman
