Fodor's Expert Review Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

3752 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89158, USA Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

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, though they're still among the most luxurious in town. 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. Ladies, there's also 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. Free daily yoga classes are held in a studio overlooking the Strip. On the 23rd floor, the Mandarin Bar has great live music, cocktails, and views. All of the food options at the bar are worthwhile, but perhaps the best investment is afternoon tea, which includes finger sandwiches, desserts, and the option of a glass of champagne.
