Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group received notice of termination of its management agreement for Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas and will cease management of the hotel on Aug. 30, 2018. 

The termination is consequent to the sale of the hotel by CityCenter Holdings, a joint venture between MGM Resorts and Infinity World Development Corporation. CityCenter Holdings sold the property for $214 million to an undisclosed buyer.

Mandarin Oriental launched the property in 2009 and established it as a market leader in the city. The hotel is one of only 13 properties around the world to have received the Triple Forbes Five Star Award – three five stars for the hotel, the spa and signature restaurant, which it has received for seven consecutive years.
