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
this hotel is smack in the strip and wow their rooms are awesome and we really loved and enjoyed their hot tub with bath salt so relaxing. I can't wait to go back in Las Vegas and stay again in this luxurious hotel
I highly recommend this hotel. The food was incredible and the location on the Strip was close to everything. The staff was super attentive and the concierge got us tickets to every show we wanted to see. Would definitely go back and stay here again.
Good location, dated room decor, malfunctioning technology in rooms and elevators. Missing hardware. Hotel asks for a resort fee but fails to deliver amenities. The restaurants are great, but very pricey
It's a great place to stay if you want to avoid the noise and smoky environment of the casino. Rooms are well appointed and the staff is terrific. For some reason on this past trip I did have to pay an early check in fee so beware of an early arrival. Other than that it's a great place to stay for business or a personal trip.
Arriving at the hotel your right in the heart of City Center. Super private, quite, beautiful. The hotel still has decor and other items that definitely let you know it was a Mandarin Oriental. Bamboo growing out front. The bell captain was attentive and amazingly quick to bring our luggage to our room.
The lobby is located on the 23rd floor along with the Sky Bar. The arrival experience is 5 star. Beautiful views and level of service second to none. Hats off to the front desk team for setting the service standard quite high!
Rooms are located on the lower floors of the building. Still amazing views of the strip! Rooms have all technology as others rooms with power drapes, lighting, TV and entertainment. Rooms have mini bar and well stocked snack drawer.
Bathroom has beautiful free standing tub, great lighting and full amenities. The closet is an amazing dressing area with lighted closest and full length mirror.
Housekeeping does an amazing job. As a 9 year diamond member I look closely. Hats off to housekeeping and turn down service. The bedding and towels and definitely new and the classic, superior Waldorf quality. The beds are sooooooo comfortable!
The rooms are modern, beautiful, however not the classic look known at Waldorf.
This hotel does not have a casino, however easy access to Aria, Cosmopolitan and Beligio as well as a Starbucks right outside the front door.
Sky Bar day and night is an experience not to miss. I was a bit put off by every single table being “reserved” and being questioned at hostess stand. More like a warden than a hostess. Ease up already! That’s why the servers were standing around with nothing to do. Bar seating felt like the only option unless your dropping 2k. Let’s hope this changes as Waldorf adds more personality. Outstanding menu of liquor and well made drinks! Limited Champagne options by the glass, unlike most other Waldorf. Again, hope this will be changed.
Overall experience was superior Waldorf service and impeccable hotel. I highly recommend this location based on location, interior and level of service.
