THEhotel at Mandalay Bay was one of the first hotels on Las Vegas’ central Strip that avoided taking on a kitschy theme, instead catering to a more discerning and sophisticated crowd looking for modern minimalism rather than over-the-top kitsch. With no fake Eiffel Tower replicas or singing Venetian gondoliers in sight, THEhotel at Mandalay Bay is a decidedly more grown-up and subdued affair, offering a welcome respite from the over-the-top design and chaotic atmosphere found in Las Vegas’ other hotels. THEhotel at the Mandalay Bay’s rooms and lavish suites are designed in a stylish palette of brown, purple and gray, with dramatic art works, 42-inch plasma TVs, plush carpeting, and floor-to-ceiling windows offering dramatic city views (particularly from the sixth floor upwards). With a sleek lobby and check-in area, a full service spa and fitness center, and some of the city’s best dining and nightlife, THEhotel’s reputation for service continues to attract the international sophisticated crowd. With a soaring position on the 64th floor, Mix Restaurant & Lounge Bar by acclaimed French chef Alain Ducasse offers refined French cuisine, cutting-edge cocktails and breathtaking panoramic views of Las Vegas’ glittering skyline. THEhotel at Mandalay Bay delivers modern luxury for a great value price tag.
