The Luxury The best bet for lavish lodgings in Las Vegas this winter should be made on stays at the newly debuted Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas, situated Strip-side within a gleaming 47-story tower at the forefront of the new $8.5 billion dollar CityCenter retail, condo, and hotel complex (pictured). A rare non-gaming resort, guests can retreat to a sophisticated Asian-inspired oasis here, with 392 sleek units designed by Adam D.Tihany, a 27,000-square-foot spa, a duo of cabana-flanked outdoor pools, and a 23rd floor lobby offering stunning skyline views.
The Value As a special introductory offer, guest who book one or more nights for stays from the hotel's opening (this past December) through February 28 will receive an additional complimentary night. With rates normally priced from $545/night, this offer translates to a 2-night stay at the property for half price ($273/night).
The Catch As per the norm with any newly debuted property, expect some opening kinks as staff settles into a groove.
