Formerly THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, Delano Las Vegas opened its doors in September 2014, bringing a touch of South Beach to the Strip.
The all-suite, non-smoking hotel is sure to appeal to even the most discerning traveler, as its one-bedroom suites boast one of the highest standard square footages of any hotel in the city: 725 square feet!
The luxurious suites come with their own bedroom and living room; wet bar; desk; and not one, not two but three flat-screen televisions, with one in the bedroom, one in the living room and one in the master bathroom. There’s also a shower and spa-style soaking tub in the master bath and a separate powder room in the living room that’s perfect for visitors.
Panoramic Suites, Delano Penthouse Suites and Delano Penthouse Lofts are available as well, and there’s even a selection of dog-friendly suites featuring dedicated doggie menu and butler services for four-legged guests to enjoy.

While the spacious suites are easily some of the nicest rooms on the Strip, Delano Las Vegas has several other amenities that visitors will enjoy, too. Its coffee house – 3940 Coffee + Tea – is a great alternative to Starbucks, serving a selection of artisanal teas, freshly squeezed juices and artisan-roasted coffees. Perhaps try the flavorful Mountain Berry Iced Tea.
Guests can also enjoy a quick bite to eat at 3940, with items like the tasty Breakfast Burrito – vegetable egg white scramble, wheat tortilla and California avocado – available from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., and a selection of palate-pleasing paninis available after 11 a.m.
For a more substantial meal, Della’s Kitchen serves a menu of classics, comfort food and seasonal specialties centered on fresh, locally sourced ingredients for breakfast and lunch. Must-try dishes include the Blackened Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp – with white hominy, aged local cheddar and tomato relish – and the delectable Lobster Scramble.
When it’s time to unwind, Delano Las Vegas is home to one of the Strip’s most lavish retreats: the two-story BATHHOUSE Spa.
A longtime favorite with Vegas spa-goers, the calming oasis recently introduced several new treatments to time with Delano Las Vegas’ opening, including locally inspired services like the refining Cactus and Desert Lily Firming Body Treatment. Great for those who need to detoxify after the holidays, the 80-minute treatment uses suction cups on various parts of the body (typically those with the most cellulite) to produce a vacuum-like effect that helps the body eliminate toxins.
Although some people might bruise easily during the massage cupping process, the caring massage therapists at BATHHOUSE pay close attention to make sure the treatment is done correctly so you don’t leave the spa with any unsightly marks – just improved skin tone.
Coupled with a detoxifying concentrated cactus body mask, the treatment is sure to reduce the appearance of dimpled, uneven skin texture.

At night, guests can enjoy a cocktail at the hotel’s bar, Franklin, which features a menu of rare, premium liquors as well as more than two dozen craft beers by the bottle and a selection of wines by the glass.
Guests can also test their luck on Mandalay Bay’s casino floor, located just steps away. Since Delano Las Vegas is connected to Mandalay Bay, guests have plenty of options to keep them entertained, like the House of Blues, Shark Reef Aquarium and Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE.
