As a brand, Mandarin Oriental pledges to provide everything for the business traveler, and the Vegas property certainly delivers on that promise. Rooms are on the small side, with sumptuous sheets and soothing Asian-inspired artwork. The in-room desk comes with hardware that can project a laptop screen on the television; a special "valet" closet near the door enables butlers to drop off dry cleaning safely without disturbing guests; and there's a flat iron in the bathroom. The spa is open only to hotel guests, so there's never a crowd. In addition to a Chinese foot spa, guests can experience a hammam, a laconium, an ice fountain, and a ladies' rhassoul (a treatment that revolves around special Moroccan mud). Men will appreciate the face, shoulder, and scalp massage. On the 23rd floor, the Mandarin Bar has great live music, cocktails, and views.
The tea: All of the food options at Mandarin Bar are worthwhile, but perhaps the best investment is afternoon
tea, which includes finger sandwiches, desserts, and the option of a glass of champagne.
The yoga: Free daily yoga classes are held in a studio overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.
The pool: Tucked next to the parking structure for Aria, the Mandarin pool is both intimate and exclusive.
The food: Pierre Gagnaire, the father of modern fusion, outdoes himself nightly at Twist. MOzen Bistro serves a top-notch breakfast menu and one of the best Sunday brunches on the Strip.
Mandarin's spa is one of the most sophisticated in town, comprising a hammam, laconium, and rhassoul. Add to this a full line of reflexology treatments and a special Chinese foot spa.
Shoes are shined on-site and returned to guests through special valet closets that provide security and privacy at the same time.
