Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s iconic luxury hotel brand, is heading to Sin City. The brand just recently announced plans to convert the Mandarin Oriental, located on the Las Vegas Strip, to the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas in August 2018.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of a Waldorf Astoria in the western part of the U.S., and in the heart of such a dynamic, internationally beloved city like Las Vegas,” said Martin Rinck, the new global head of Hilton’s Luxury & Lifestyle Group. “Paired with the recently opened Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and the brand’s recently announced properties in San Francisco and Antigua, the signing of Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas builds on the brand’s exciting trajectory and impressive growth story.”
The location is slated to be the brand’s first property in the Las Vegas market, located in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. The hotel will incorporate true Waldorf service with the inclusion of the brand’s Personal Concierges to help guests make the most of their stay and experience. Other experiences available at the hotel will be innovative dining concepts, spectacular views of The Strip from the hotel’s exclusive 23rd floor bar, helicopter rides, spa retreats and more.
“Las Vegas continues to be one of the most exciting and luxurious cities in the world and we have a real opportunity to introduce the Waldorf Astoria brand in this market, where so many of the city’s visitors seek the highly covetable, unforgettable experiences that are ingrained in the Waldorf Astoria way of life,” says Rinck. “Following the tremendous success of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, it only made sense to seek another property in the western U.S. where guests can experience all that Waldorf Astoria has to offer.”
The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas currently features 16 treatment rooms including seven private couple’s suites; a Chinese foot spa; men’s and women’s relaxation lounges with views of the Strip; heat and water experiences including steam rooms, a hammam, a laconium, a vitality pool, a ladies’ rhassoul, a men’s sauna, and an ice fountain; a beauty salon; and a spa boutique. There’s no word yet on how the spa at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas will differ from The Spa at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas.
