This beautifully designed hotel offers a welcome respite from the hubbub of the famous Strip — despite being right in the middle of it. The Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is casino-free, so it can really embrace the luxurious serenity the brand is known for. All the rooms feature Orient-inspired decor, and the downstairs lobby’s beautiful Chinese artworks are fit for a gallery. Head to the 23rd floor to dine on seasonal French cuisine at renowned chef Pierre Gagnaire’s restaurant Twist. Then retreat to the Mandarin Bar & Tea Lounge for a Golden Knights cocktail (a tribute to Las Vegas’s NHL team) and watch the lights twinkle below. Previous guests include Lucy Liu and Norman Mailer.
NOTE: THIS HOTEL HAS NOW CLOSED AND BEEN RENAMED THE WALDORF ASTORIA LAS VEGAS.
