Why Delano Las Vegas Is Our Favorite Hidden Gem in the Desert
Vegas visitors searching for an intimate experience and serene surroundings amid the mega resorts lining the Strip can try their luck at the Delano Las Vegas. Tucked between colossal casinos but hardly in their shadows, the popular Miami brand’s Sin City outpost offers a secluded feel within striking distance of the Strip’s most popular nightlife and entertainment.
Here are our top 10 reasons why high rollers looking to balance out a busy itinerary with plenty of R&R hit the jackpot when booking the Delano.
The gleaming gold tower pays homage to the original Delano with over 1000 suites washed in a soothing -- and very South Beach -- white-on-white color scheme.
From the massive boulders taken from Nevada’s Great Basin Desert that guard the front entrance to ingredients at Della’s Kitchen that are sourced from the on-site greenhouse, the local landscape is embraced throughout the property.
Those with more exotic tastes can sample fare from Provence and Italy at acclaimed chef Alain Ducasse’s Rivea.
The non-gaming hotel is connected to Mandalay Bay, giving guests direct access to the casino floor as well as the resort’s concert halls and nightclubs.
Sixty-four floors up, Skyfall Lounge offers a long list of drinks.
On weekends, head down to Franklin Lounge on the first floor for Chords & Cocktails, featuring live music and award-winning mixologists.
If you prefer bubble baths over bubbly, dip into a whirlpool tub at the BATHHOUSE Spa.
Nothing complements the desert sunshine better than frosty refreshments at the guests-only Delano Beach Club (for access to Mandalay Bay Beach, just flash your room key).
Or keep cool and make your move in the shallow end over a game of submerged chess.
Every member of your wolf pack can join in for boys’ weekend -- book a dog-friendly suite that includes a canine room service menu and access to pet sitters.
