SLS Las Vegas isn’t the only new hotel on the block. Well, technically, the Strip has several blocks, but you get the reference. On the southern end of the Strip, Mandalay Bay is about to be home to Delano Las Vegas, in addition to its other hotel-within-a-hotel, Four Seasons.
On September 1, Delano Las Vegas officially opens its doors to guests (although, visitors have found themselves inside remodeled rooms for weeks now.) We’ve been informed 99% of the rooms are complete and the new café, Della's Kitchen, the new lobby bar, Franklin, and the new 3940 Coffee+Tea will all be ready for guests. The coffee shop’s name may sound a little hipster pretentious, but it’s actually just the address (which, now that we think of it, is a little hipster-ish.) If you want the scoop on Della’s Kitchen, we’ve got details on its menu here.

Debuting next month at Delano Las Vegas (formerly THEhotel... we can start saying that now, can't we?), Della's Kitchen will bring a "historic farmhouse meets urban eatery" concept to the property's old cafe space. If you were like us, you were like, sweet! And then you were all like, what the hell does that mean?
A press release on Monday touted a "desert-sustainable breakfast and lunch menu" with fresh juices, "delectable" breakfast options, "savory" salads, and signature paninis, sandwiches and burgers, but again, what exactly would that end up being on our plate? And, how much would it cost us to be so health conscious?
Well, wonder no more as we've obtained the full menu for Della's Kitchen, including pricing. While there are a few items for those with an intolerance to gluten (noted below in blue), if you have a nut intolerance, you'll need to dine elsewhere. The menu is heavy with nut allergy warnings. Pricing seems fairly par for the course when it comes to Strip dining, even at a "cafe," with most items ranging from $5 to $18; although, there are naturally some that are lower and some that are much higher (for instance, you'll pay $26 for the Ahi Burger). Peruse the full menu below. Della's will be open from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily.

The new name will bring refreshed rooms and a rejuvenated spa menu (see what we did there?) while a redesigned lobby will add new lounge and dining spaces to the all-suite tower. Still to come will be the rebranding of miX and the arrival of its own pool (yes, miX is going away and, no, there won't be a pool "on site," so to speak.)
THEhotel is just weeks away from becoming Delano Las Vegas, a transformation that includes a full remodel of its all-suite tower. Four Seasons completely renovated its floors within Mandalay Bay in 2012. Now it sounds like the resort's main tower will be next for an update.

A series of Vegas delays means the debut of Delano Las Vegas -- while defiantly inspired (whatever that means) -- will definitely be overshadowed by the almost simultaneous debut of SLS Las Vegas. SLS will take its bow August 23 while Delano steps onto the Vegas scene, officially, September 1.
We say officially because more and more folks have already stayed at the remodeled and renamed THEhotel at Mandalay Bay as a floor-by-floor takeover continues to move towards completion. And, with more stays, more early reviews are popping up. We'll disregard talk of construction noise and construction walls for obvious reasons, but it was interesting to read early reactions to the completed rooms. And, while a handful complained of inadequate storage and uncomfortable couches, it was a few small rectangles that bent most guests out of shape:

Can't wait for future Vegas to arrive? Sate your thirst for Vegas new-ness with ten shots of construction porn. All were snapped today as we travelled from Luxor to Sahara. Erm, SLS!
Delano Las Vegas (Debuting September 1)
Don't call it THEhotel, anymore. It's almost Delano now -- just check out the sign below! -- so we might as well get used to it. Officially making its Vegas debut September 1, some folks are already enjoying the new rooms. A rep tells us about 40 percent of the tower's accommodations have been remodeled so far.

Our sister site, HotelChatter, recently got her own up, close and personal look at the upcoming Delano Las Vegas which is currently transforming THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. While on the tour, they geeked out over these cool phones which make it easy to stay in bed while
drunk sexting checking your email. What might be especially useful to frequent Vegas visitors, however, is that rooms at the Delano are already ready already. (Yes, we just stole that from a cheesy 90s commercial.)
Our source told us that rooms on the 37th floor have been in use by real, live guests lately. The rooms aren't available to book online but specially invited guests have been able to try them out. Indeed, that scoop checks out with this review on TripAdvisor.

THEhotel at Mandalay Bay will make its debut as the Delano Las Vegas September 1. An extensive room remodel has been underway for weeks now but, if that news makes you sad, you can always keep a piece of THEhotel in your heart. And, in your home.
VegasChatter friend Greg B. reports The Original Hotel Liquidators on Cameron Street won the bid to sell all the old furnishings and "are chewing through it (the inventory) at quite a clip."
When it comes time to ride the rocket, Delano will have you covered, but you'll have to go down to get it. ahem... To the minibar.
The Delano Sexy Intimacy Kit will include:
· French Kiss Premium Mints
· Premium Condoms (2)
· Liquid Ecstasy Personal Lubricant
· Personal Massager (battery operated)
· Ooh La La Feather Tickler

While Delano takes over THEhotel at Mandalay Bay as part of an $80 million transformation, both share a common theme. One of separateness and intimacy. Adjacent to all the perks of a major resort, but not a part of it. THEhotel is one of the OG's in Vegas' "boutique" hotel trend. It's hoped Delano will bring that game to the next level with even more exclusivity, even more personalized service. For example, all guests will receive a follow-up call after checking in while executives plan to know when VIPs are en route and will greet them curbside with keys at the ready.

VegasChatter fan Karen from Pittsburgh recently wrote in to ask us for an update:
If anyone would know, I figure it would be one of you guys. We are coming to Vegas in late September, and have to stay at Mandalay Bay for the Barrett Jackson Auction (Sept. 25-27). But I was wondering if The Hotel would be completed as The Delano. I would love to stay there if it was done, and I can't find any good info on it. When going to book rooms, it still comes up at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay.

While we've got our suspicions about this property actually happening thanks to the dubious history of Delano's parent company Morgans Hotel Group, however -- according to MGM Resorts -- the Delano will open sometime next September or October. That's nearly a year later from the initial opening date set for the hotel.
