Serene CityCenter stay that adds a dose of sophistication to the Strip, with two pools, a spa, and haute French fare
The opulent, otherworldly interiors of the Waldorf are more Hong Kong than Vegas. So it’s no surprise that this “Zen City” hotel, with its sustainable architecture, tranquil atmosphere, and non-gaming/nonsmoking policy attracts a particularly stylish set. There’s a hushed sexiness to the Sky Lobby, with its glowing black marble floors, curving art installations and abstract, umbrella-like lights, which float above the lounge. And the other common spaces reference Asian design traditions without resorting to the typical Vegas kitsch. Even Standard Rooms are sumptuously outfitted with chic Asian-inspired furnishings, high-end linens, marble baths, and tech-forward amenities like a futuristic lighting and sound system, electronic blackout curtains, and a 42-inch flat-screen TV (plus a smaller one in the bathroom), all controlled by a touchscreen tablet next to the bed. Thoughtful extras, from champagne glasses to aromatic bath salts, add warmth to the thoroughly modern space. Two lap pools, a plunge pool, and two Jacuzzis float above the glittering CityCenter complex on the eighth floor offer every manner of pampering (think free mini-smoothies, snacks and attendants to clean your sunglasses), while the Asian-inspired spa proves equally indulgent, with 17 treatment rooms, a salon, a yoga studio and a series of heat and water experiences—steam rooms, a hammam, a laconium, an ice fountain and plunge pools—for guests to relax in before or after treatments. Book in advance to score a seat at Twist, the only U.S. restaurant from three-Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire, or take a culinary tour of Asia courtesy of the airy Mozen Bistro. Afterward, survey the sophisticated scene at the 23rd-floor bar, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that invite in glittering views of the Strip. It’s all the sin of Sin City, with the salvation of escape.
In the Area
Of course, sleeping in the self-proclaimed “Zen City” doesn’t mean skipping Vegas’s sinful pleasures altogether. The hotel is located at CityCenter, right in the middle of the action on the Strip. Futuristic skybridges and trams transport guests to nearby attractions, or you can just get a free ride in the hotel’s Mercedes-Benz. Take the skybridge over to the Daniel Libeskind–designed Crystals shopping district, where Chihuly glass sculptures and carpets made from flowers complement designer baubles by the likes of Balenciaga, Gucci and Lanvin. Your CityCenter location also gives you easy access to culinary heavyhitters, from the three-Michelin-starred Masayoshi Takayama and Jean-Georges Vongerichten to Wolfgang Puck and Todd English. For a little retro fun, take the 10-minute taxi ride to the Pinball Hall of Fame, the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs.
How to Get There
Myself, brother and father typically plan a guys trip each year and usually stay in the Vitienan/Pallzo; however it been awhile since we had been down to this area of the strip and heard great about the Waldorf at Las Vegas.
The rooms are very spacious and while our room didnt have a step down living area it more than made up for this with the extra large bathroom and closet space.
Besides the staff being increasingly friendly and helpful, the sky bar had an amazing view and honestly it was nice to stay in a hotel not connected to the casino directly as.it cut down on the amount of smoke significantly
We have stayed in this hotel multiple times during the years. This hotel really stands out from the rest! We have also experienced many other Vegas "legends", like Bellagio, Caesar's Palace, Encore, Venetian, Cosmopolitan, Palazzo etc. but this is, by far, the best of them all!
The atmosphere here is much more peaceful than at most of the Vegas hotels (believe me, you need some peace and tranquility after a few days in Vegas;). The suites and also regular rooms are beautifully appointed, the pool area is wonderful, the lobby lounge and the lobby bar are classy, the spa is really relaxing etc. But what really makes this hotel a special one is the top-notch service one get's here! All the members of the hotel staff are just amazing!
I want to give my special thanks to a few individuals who really went the extra mile on our previous visit; first of all, my biggest thanks go to wonderful concierges Mr Bryan and Ms Haley - they are both just wonderful! Bryan helped us a lot already long before our trip and Haley continued helping us during our stay. Thank you so much guys!
Also, want to give special thanks to Zen Kitchen's wonderful waiters Kristy, Edgar and Kenneth (Kristy even remembered us from our previous visit!).
These highly talented people, together with many others, make us come back year after year - already booked our next stay for next July - can't wait! :)
This was my second stay at the WA Las Vegas and it was absolutely amazing!!!
I stood here last year while attending SEMA and decided to return this year based on my last experience. My stay needed to be altered, but because of the circumstances it became difficult to make those changes, after a number of calls the Waldorf Astoria made everything fall into place. When I arrived for check in they offered an upgrade, the day was long and I still had a dinner to attend, needless to say I wasn't focused. When I made my way to my room, I thought why do I have two doors to my room, as I was still texting for dinner plans. My room and stay were perfect and why I returned. When I left, valet said have a great day, I said I will see you next year!!! This will be my hotel going forward and I've been going to Vegas for 40 years plus, since I was a kid.
