Miami's Delano Makes Las Vegas Debut

Delano Las Vegas

MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group have officially opened their joint-venture all-suite hotel, Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, they announced yesterday.

"Delano Las Vegas marks a new chapter in the Las Vegas hotel experience, ushering in elevated levels of personalized service, style, and attention to detail," General Manager Matthew Chilton said in a statement. "We're challenging the quintessential over-the-top Vegas experience by introducing a new brand focused on understated luxury, appealing to in-the-know travelers."

Announced in 2012, Delano Las Vegas is the second Delano in the United States, serving as a sibling to the brand's signature South Beach property. Fresh from a renovation and redesign, it replaces THEhotel, an all-suite resort that opened adjacent to Mandalay Bay in 2003. It offers 1,117 guest suites; a 14,000-square-foot spa; a private pool and beach club opening in 2015; four food-and-beverage venues, including a top-floor restaurant opening next year; and 20,000 square feet of meeting space, including 31 meeting rooms, four boardrooms, and the casual 1,257-square-foot "Sage Living Room."

"The arrival of Delano to the Las Vegas Strip is a historic moment for Morgans," said Morgans Hotel Group Chairman Jason Kalisman. "A Delano is so much more than just a physical structure; it is a special experience that transports guests into a world that combines fantasy and modern luxury. We are both excited and honored to be partnering with MGM Resorts International, a leader in hospitality and entertainment, in bringing this unique lifestyle brand to the Las Vegas Strip."
