For a luxurious Las Vegas hotel stay right on the famous Strip without the noisy traffic and gaming action, it's hard to beat the Mandarin Oriental. You'll have the best of both worlds here.
Located about 10 minutes from McCarran International Airport, this 47-story resort is part of the CityCenter urban complex. The building not only boasts a beautiful glass façade, but also utilizes sustainable design, having received LEED Gold certification.
There are 392 rooms and suites in the Mandarin Oriental. They are decorated in contemporary style with Asian-inspired touches. For example, a dragon sculpture can be found in all of the accommodations. The rooms are also wonderfully appointed with things like goose-down bedding, a 42-inch flat-screen television and a large working desk. The bathrooms include both a stand-alone tub and a walk-in shower as well as double sinks, another flat-screen TV, Frette bathrobes and Shanghai Tang toiletries.
The restaurants at Mandarin Oriental are among the best in Vegas -- as they pair gourmet cuisine with breathtaking views. Enjoy innovative French cooking at Twist by chef Pierre Gagnaire. The MOzen Bistro serves fine Asian and American fare. In addition, fresh organic items can be ordered at the Pool Café.
In the afternoons, guests can savor an array of teas and pastries in the Tea Lounge, while a cool cocktail from the Mandarin Bar is a must in the evenings. Both of these venues are found on the 23rd floor, thus providing panoramic views of the Strip.
Another wonderful reason to stay at Mandarin Oriental is so you can unwind on the resort's stunning outdoor deck, which has two lap pools, two hot tubs, a plunge pool and more amazing views.
Finally, you can always kick the pampering up a notch by getting a massage or treatment in The Spa. This 27,000-square-foot facility offers numerous unique and holistic experiences -- such as steam rooms, a hammam, a laconium, a vitality pool, ladies' rhassoul, a men's sauna and an ice fountain. There is also a beauty salon and spa boutique.
Mandarin Oriental is truly a ideal place of serenity -- surrounded by all of Las Vegas' top sights and attractions, yet worlds away from any of its stresses.
