Mandalay Bay squeezes so much to do under one roof that it flouts Vegas’s recent move toward niche markets, opting instead to offer something for everybody. Its democratic appeal starts on the gaming floor, which has a wide array of limits, every table game imaginable and a full slate of other options, including a poker room and one of the city’s best sports and race books. There are also loads of gambling-free destinations, including two shopping malls, two spas and even a shark-filled aquarium. The resort also sports the most elaborate pool complex in a city known for its pools: 11 acres of pools, lagoons, lazy rivers, beaches with 2,700 tons of sand and a wave pool so impressive it can host pro surfing contests.
Bed & Bath
The magnitude of the place is driven home by the size of its guestrooms; the smallest is a sprawling 550 square feet. When it opened in 1999 Mandalay Bay was among the first to embrace the new era of Las Vegas hotels, with rooms that were not mere motel-style afterthoughts but well-equipped sanctuaries. Fresh off a remodeling, Mandalay Bay has put its digs back on top, and now they pack up-to-date technology (flatscreen TVs, WiFi, iPod docks), mod furniture and large stone bathrooms with twin vanities, soaking tubs and walk-in showers.
Food and entertainment is where Mandalay Bay rises to the top. It has multiple live performance venues and routinely attracts big names like Bob Seger, Pink, Styx and Zac Brown. The dining choices are staggering and mouthwatering, from the Tex-Mex of TV’s Two Hot Tamales at Border Grill to surf and turf at Michael Mina’s STRIPSTEAK to the progressive American Cuisine at Charlie Palmer’s Michelin-starred Aureole.
How to Get There
I just think they can do better with the housekeeping I found some hairs in the bathroom belong to us Also if you want teachers in the room will be nice I need a more modern Provide more bathroom toiletries
We were celebrating a friend's 70th birthday. And the party was lovely. But as far as the hotel went, everything was a charge. Resort fee charged yet no complementary coffee in the room, and you have to buy your own tubes for the lazy river??? What did I get for that resort fee? NOTHING.
No thanks, I will not stay there again.
Upon arriving at the hotel it took me nearly 40 mins in line to check-in. When I finally received my room key I proceeded up to my room on the 23rd floor and to my disgust the room was not prepared in the least. It looked like someone was still staying in the room. The room smelled of an awful combination of asparagus, dirty clothes, sweat and piss. The bed was messy and stained, the floors were covered in trash, the waste bins were filled to the brim with all sorts of refuse and waste and to add to all this, the bathroom was disgusting. Bloody tissues in the waste bin used towels on the floor, dirty sink, unwashed toilet, and a lingering foul odor. To be brief it took me almost two hours on hold on the phone and in the front desk line, to get a clean room. An apology was never really made. I also lost an item while staying here and I have yet to hear anything back on my claim. Hardly any of the staff seem to care very much at all about their guests. Sad.
