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
The hotel is exceptional! I truly enjoyed our stay. The beds were very comfortable and I loved the turn down service. The doorbell was a nice addition. The valet service was nice and they prepared my clothes just as I wished. I would have liked for the tv in the bathroom to work. We were busy most days seeing the sites and I would have liked to catch up on the news while I soaked in the tub. Also, the rinse off nozzle in the tub did not work. That being said, it was nice to have a large soaking tub with bath salts provided. I really wish I knew what scent was used for the salts! I would buy that scent forever! The shower was large and nice. I also thoroughly enjoyed the view of the strip and mall! I did like opening the curtains from the bed and turn off the lights at the same time. I will have the automatic curtain device installed in my next home. The food was wonderful! The breakfast bar was extensive with a omelet service and pressed juice options. I liked the option of fresh fruit considering the food options on the strip are primarily buffets, fast food, and steak houses. The valets were kind and welcoming. Hilton really has stepped it up with this property. I look forward to staying at the WA in Key West.
My wife and I stayed here for a weekend prior to her weeklong conference in Vegas. We chose the WA due to the fact that is a casino (and smoke) free hotel yet located on the strip between the Park MGM and Aria. The location did not disappoint and the hotel didn’t either. The hotel has recently converted from the Mandarin Oriental brand to a Hilton Waldorf Astoria. Most of the Asian decor remains and little has been changed, yet. Apparently the remodel will begin near the end of 2019. The rooms are well appointed but slightly dated. The common areas were clean and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. I only give it a 4/5 due to a couple of hiccups. We had a spa appointment but when we showed up, they had no record, despite us having a confirmation card. The FHR Amex upgrade was not available and the staff did little to address it. Overall, we would stay here again, mainly due to this property being an intimate escape amongst the strip.
Stayed for the weekend as a getaway and it did not disappoint!!! We spent alot of time at the pool and it was perfect!!! We went to Rabbit lie & rose for dinner which was a real treat and so different. Loved beauty & Essex for drinks and a scene. Enjoyed the Restauarant Zen & Hotel bar!!!! Check in was smooth and easy.
As Hilton diamond members perks included: Upgrade to a strip facing room. 2. $25 per person room credit per day. 3. Free transportation for 2 miles. 3. 1000 extra points per night. 4. early check in
We had the afternoon tea and it was overall a good experience. Even though I mentioned vegan/vegetarian on my reservation they were quite confused and surprised at first and the vegan option was just replacing scones with fruit which wasn't great. Overall, it was a nice place and a good afternoon
We had a wonderful experience staying at the Waldorf Astoria. Room was clean and service was excellent. Definitely will be back. The staff were also courteous and helpful. Kudos to the doormen also who were prompt in their service.
