The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences has replaced the Mandarin Oriental hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. Non-gaming and non-smoking, the Hilton Management Services-operated property will undergo an 18-month redesign of its public spaces as well as its 389 guestrooms and 225 residences
The property is part of a complex that includes the Aria casino-resort, Vdara hotel, Veer Towers condominiums and an upscale shopping mall.
The Mandarin Oriental’s management agreement was canceled as a result of the property’s sale. Under that brand, the hotel featured a strong Asian flair, which Hilton intends to change over time.
