Hotel/Casinos are now making more money on food, shows,
spas and shopping than gaming. So now there are a couple new Hotels in
this center strip area (Vdara is the other) that choose to be in the
Hotel business and let the others compete with the gaming.
As the name would suggest Mandarin Oriental has Asian roots and if you have ever stayed in a luxury Hotel in Asia you know it is far superior to one in America (sorry, but its a fact). The level of service is beyond belief. This Hotel will provide that same kind of service that it's Asian Hotels properties do.
The lobby offers amazing views of the strip both north and south, it is located on the 23rd floor. Next time you are in Vegas take a look, they welcome visitors even if you are not staying there.
Dining and Lounging are different here. Its all first class and all in a subdued atmosphere. Without the sounds of a Casino outside the doors, it lets You get away from the fast pace for a little while. All in 5 star comfort.
With more shows to choose from than any other City in the World, You might feel overwhelmed deciding on one. But if You narrow Your preference to a category, You can make Your decision much easier. If Your interest is in a Cirque du soleil show, why browse through the Comedy and Adult shows? If You want to see Britney or Mariah or JLo just browse the Concerts and headliners.
Don't like huge theaters and big crowds? Choose an afternoon Show or a half price show.
A Dinner and Show combo is a great value and saves time to do other things that day.
