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.

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.
