Delano Las Vegas to Open This Fall

LAS VEGAS—The Delano Las Vegas will open at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in place of THEhotel in September 2014. The 1,100-room, all-suite boutique hotel is partnership between MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group.

“Delano guests will be wowed by the introduction of this very special destination,” said Matthew Chilton, general manager of Delano Las Vegas. “Dynamic public spaces will serve as social hubs where guests will want to linger and socialize while the clean design of the suites will create a quiet escape.”

Each one-bedroom suite will feature a private bedroom with contemporary light-wood armoire, bold lighting fixtures, and a spacious spa-style bath. With a 46-inch flat-screen TV, wet bar, desk, and its own powder room, the adjoining living room will offer a retreat that doubles as an entertaining area or impromptu meeting space.


The public spaces will be highlighted by a new lobby featuring a unique coffee bar, sophisticated lounge, and café concept.

Design teams from both companies collaborated to create the vision for all venues and suites. The teams were led by Joyen Vakil, senior vice president of design and development for MGM Resorts International, and Verena Haller, senior vice president of design for Morgans Hotel Group.

The transformation of Delano Las Vegas began in April. The debut of the boutique hotel will mark the culmination of Mandalay Bay’s property-wide evolution, which includes collaborations with brands such as Cirque du Soleil, The Light Group, and Four Seasons, in addition to Morgans Hotel Group.
