With 392 guestrooms and 225 residences, including 55 suites and three expansive Presidential Suites, Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is set in a non-gaming, non-smoking environment.

Design features include a discreet valet closet, allowing for deliveries without disruption.
The property’s cuisine will include artistry by Michelin-Star rated Chef Pierre Gagnaire, whose restaurant, Twist, is the first-ever U.S. eatery to serve his interpretation of classic French cuisine. The property will also include the SkyBar on the 23rd floor and the Tea Lounge with three afternoon tea times with views overlooking The Strip.
The hotel’s 27,000-square-foot spa spans two entire guest floors. At the Waldorf Astoria Spa, a new suite of services includes a completely customized experience tailored to personal skin qualities, aesthetic expectations, and a holistic analysis. The Spa has an array of therapies, seven private couple’s suites, multiple relaxation experiences, a Hamman, and a Zen Foot Spa. In addition, the eighth-floor pool deck has two pools, two whirlpools, a plunge pool, and poolside cabanas.
