South Beach has a home in Sin City.
An $80 million overhaul that transformed THEhotel at Mandalay Bay created Delano, a chic, 1,100-room all-suit hotel with a boutique flair.
Sleep: Delano’s spacious one-bedroom suites span 725 square feet and feature spa-style baths, a separate living area and flat-screen TVs. The primarily white rooms, adorned with gold accents and desert-inspired touches, average $200 a night. Panoramic suites are also available.
Sup: It’s “farm-to-Strip” at Della’s Kitchen, which sources regional and local ingredients, including herbs from its own greenhouse, for a unique spin on comfort food. Menu offerings include blue crab Benedict and duck panini in a sleek, industrial setting.
Sip: Cocktails are high art at Franklin, the hotel’s eclectic lobby lounge. Guests can socialize and sip libations spun from rare premium liquors, like the New Deal, a cognac-based drink sweetened with golden plum marmalade.
Spa: Guests can unwind at the two-story 14,000-square-foot Bathhouse Spa where whirlpools, steam rooms and saunas take the edge off. The spa’s treatment menu features local ingredients, like desert oils and wildflowers, as well as influences from afar to balance your chakras.
