The Delano Is Coming, And So Is The Price Hike
The Delano will bring a Miami vibe to The Strip late next year when it takes over THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. It also will bring Delano pricing.
USA Today reports that THEhotel is bringing in "an average daily rate of about $189 a night," but quotes an executive as saying "improvements to the hotel should bring higher rates." A comparison rate check of Delano South Beach shows the resort commands an average rates of around $349 a night. Will the Vegas rate be similar? We'll need to wait and see, but at least we know where things could be heading.
(Side note: Delano South Beach offers Florida residents a 15 percent discount so Nevada residents could look forward to the same savings.)
Another interesting tidbit revealed by USA Today is that Mandalay Bay is looking to lure "a younger clientele" with the addition of the Delano, "one that demands a newfangled, edgier type of luxury." Not shocking by any means, but a sign that it will soon be a whole new Mandalay Bay.
