The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas, formerly the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, is a 47-story[1] luxury hotel and condominium building in the CityCenter complex on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. It is managed by Hilton Worldwide as part of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts brand. It is owned by Tiffany Lam and Andrew and Peggy Cherng.

The hotel has 392 rooms and suites,[1] decorated in an Eastern style. The hotel lobby is located on the 23rd floor.[2] The Waldorf Astoria Residences have 225 condominium residences located on the building's upper floors,[2] which had an average listing price of $2 million as of 2010.[3]

The Waldorf Astoria holds the AAA Five Diamond Award and three Forbes Five Star Awards (for its hotel, spa, and restaurant), a distinction earned by only six hotels in the United States.[4][5]

History[edit]

The hotel was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox architects, with mixed residential interiors designed by firms of Kay Lang & Associates and Page & Steele Interior Architects. The hotel received a LEED Gold certification on November 20, 2009.[6]

The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas opened on December 5, 2009.[2]

In December 2009, the French restaurant Twist opened in the Mandarin Oriental, marking the U.S. debut of Michelin Three-Star French chef Pierre Gagnaire.[7]

In 2018, CityCenter sold the hotel for $214 million to hotel investor Tiffany Lam and Panda Express founders Andrew and Peggy Cherng.[8] In conjunction with the sale, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group ceased managing the property on August 31, 2018, and Hilton assumed management, rebranding it as a Waldorf Astoria.[9][10]

Facilities[edit]

The Waldorf Astoria contains 392 hotel rooms and suites, five restaurants and bars, and a spa, which was named a Forbes Five-Star recipient.[11] The interior of the hotel was designed by Adam D. Tihany.[12]

The hotel's pool area

The hotel has over 12,000 sq ft (1,100 m2) of function space including a ballroom and meeting rooms. Additionally, the hotel has an outdoor pool area with two lap pools, two hot tubs, a plunge pool, and poolside cabanas. A fitness center and beauty salon are located on premises.[13]

The spa spans two floors and has 17 treatment rooms and relaxation lounges.[14][15]
