The First Phase Of Delano Las Vegas Has Arrived

The debate rages on whether it's technically a new Vegas resort, but semantics aside, it's definitely a new brand for Sin City. The Delano is marking its second official day of operations on the Strip today, September 2.

Best known to residents and visitors of Florida, Delano heads west with a Las Vegas outpost. A takeover of THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, some $80 million was spent to transform the all-suite tower into something more in line with the brand's South Beach vibe. Use of the Delano name is part of a licensing agreement between parent company, Morgans Hotel Group, and MGM Resorts which will continue to run the tower.

The first phase of the project brings redesigned rooms (although bathrooms weren't really touched) and new public spaces, including a renamed cafe (now Della's Kitchen), new lobby bar (Franklin) and a new coffeeshop experience (3940 Coffee + Tea). Still to come is a new fine dining restaurant (miX will make way for Rivea, also by Alain Ducasse) and Delano Beach Club (taking over a section of Mandalay Bay Beach.) Those additions won't debut until sometime next year.

A check of the room rate calendar found a starting rate of $95 a night (look for that pricing in November) and going all the way up to $750 (for some nights in October.) A $28 tax-inclusive resort fee covers WiFi, cardio room access, outgoing faxes, boarding pass printing, daily newspaper as well as local and toll-free calls.

An opening media day will take place this afternoon. VegasChatter will have live coverage on Twitter and Facebook beginning in the noon hour (PT).

Any news on how much longer miX will remain open? I have always liked going up there and am hoping it will still be there when I go in a few weeks.


Do you happen to know what is going on at MB on Oct. 19 and 20? I have a room at Four Seasons on Saturday the 18th that would be far cheaper than a 550DR at Mandalay on either that Sunday or Monday.  Looked online and only found the Clippers pre-season game on the 18th. No other hotel is running prices this high (over $600 for a base room).


Mortgage Bankers Association, looks like?

Wow that is interesting. Good researching.  I hope the convention rate for them is much lower. Would suck to be stuck in a low floor room at MB when a Skyloft at MGM is only $200 more a night.


It will stay open through rest of 2014. The new restaurant will debut around this time next year.
