The Hotel at Mandalay Bay to rebrand into the Delano Las Vegas

MGM Resorts International announced plans in 2013 to rebrand The Hotel, connected to Mandalay Bay, into Delano Las Vegas, and the 11-year-old property will be given a new look from top to bottom.

The $80-million renovation is to be completed by September, with nearly every square foot of public space inside the 1,100-room nongaming hotel will be enhanced.

The transformation is a collaboration between MGM Resorts and the Morgans Hotel Group, which owns the Delano brand. The concept is to turn the property, which is connected to Mandalay Bay, into a boutique-style luxury property.

HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


Changes include new designs and furnishings to the property’s guestrooms and suites, including redesigned hallways and corridors. The lobby will be changed, and public spaces will have three social spaces — a coffee bar, a lounge and café concept.

The Hotel opened in 2003 as a smaller, nongaming alternative to the attached 3,300-room Mandalay Bay. The 1,100-room property has a separate entrance, larger rooms and the penthouse Mix nightclub and restaurant.

Mandalay Bay and the property’s attractions are a short walk away down a corridor.
