- Facts & Amenities
An all-suite property of 1000 sets of rooms, the 64-storey Delano Las Vegas seems small next to the other mega-resorts in town. There’s no casino here, so it’s decidedly more serene and sophisticated (by Vegas standards) than say, for example, its neighbouring sister property, Mandalay Bay.
This modern resort is situated at the southernmost tip of the Strip. So near and yet so far, there’s an air of calm over here. But fear not, a monorail station is very nearby should you wish to get anywhere in a flash.
Suites within are sophisticated, done up in white, cream and other neutral tones. We liked the Scenic Suites best, with their floor-to-ceiling windows, better the higher up you go. Bathrooms are large, with separate WCs. And the Malin and Goetz amenities make up for the fact that if you use the coffee machine in the room (although it’s nothing special), you’ll pay a premium for the capsules.
As customary in town, prices for entry-level rooms are usually low, but you need to factor in sizeably more greenbacks to cover the basics. You’ll need to pay a nominal charge here, as an example, to use the Bathhouse Spa facilities that include the gym, sauna and steam rooms.
But you’ll be glad that you made time for sports when you see what’s in store on the dining front. Not only do you have all the food and beverage outlets of Mandalay Bay to choose from (and entertainment and shows), but the Delano has its own choice restaurants. Have dinner in the maritime-themed Rivea, where chef Alain Ducasse (of Parisian fame) brings his talent to the table with a sumptuous French and Italian menu.
Then there’s Della’s Kitchen, probably the best choice for breakfast and also open for lunch. But if the sun is shining, you’ll probably want to spend the day at the Delano Beach Club with its underwater chess set (submerged in the pool) and its choice of cosy cabanas and daybeds.
When the sun goes down, head indoors again for a drink at the Skyfall Lounge with its panoramic views – a fun way to get the party started. After which, go straight to the Light Nightclub where, if you book in advance, you’ll be able to reserve a table – something you may want after all the excitement of the day.
