THEhotel at Mandalay Bay Review
If James Bond were staying on the Strip, something tells us he'd book a suite here. Elaborate wet bars, giant 42-inch plasma TVs, plush carpeting, dark wooden desks, floor-to-ceiling windows, and mirrored wardrobes at the foot of the most comfortable beds on the Strip all add up to the perfect bachelor pad. The property is connected to the rest of Mandalay Bay but also has its own lobby and check-in, swank coffee bar, see-and-be-seen lounge, and respectable 24-hour restaurant. Guests of THEhotel enjoy full use to Mandalay Bay's sprawling pool complex and beach, as well as access to the Bathhouse Spa and THEgym. It's all unquestionably high-end, but rates are surprisingly competitive with other leading hotels. At this writing the property is expected to rebrand as the Delano in early 2014.
Pardon us if we sound like we're gushing, but we can't get over this place. Hands down, this is the mother of all Vegas pools. The experience includes an 11-acre beach spread with a huge wave pool, a Euro-inspired topless pool with plush daybeds called the Moorea Beach club, a meandering river, and some of the cushiest cabanas in town. It was a tough choice with so many other Vegas contenders in the running, but they just can't beat the Mandalay.
