THEhotel at Mandalay Bay

Address: 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, 89119, United States

Star rating:
4 star hotel

4.8

Picture-perfect views of the Strip from the comfort of your suite.

It looks like a smaller tower of the Mandalay Bay, but THEhotel is actually a hotel within a hotel (along the lines of Palms Place, the Four Seasons and the Signature at MGM Grand). I adore it – you’ve got all the fabulous restaurant options and the swish casino of Mandalay Bay, but a plush room in a private annex and, on the top floor, my favourite bar in Vegas. Oh, and it's usually great value, too - what's not to love?

Location

Adjoining Mandalay Bay, so south of the Strip proper (although it’s still on Las Vegas Boulevard). You can walk to the Tropicana in about 15 or 20 minutes, but if you want to hit the central part of the Strip, you’ll have to take a taxi.

Bedrooms

All rooms are big non-smoking suites with marble bathrooms, steam showers, wet bars and plasma TVs (which isn’t a given in traditional Vegas hotels). The decor is plush but neutral – think grey swirls on the carpets and curtains, with dark wood tables and grey sofas. They’re all a high standard and, best of all, you can request a Strip view (which you definitely should – the views are stunning) whichever category of room you choose.

Public areas

A sleek dark wood corridor connects THEhotel to Mandalay Bay proper. The lobby and lift banks are stunning (and silent) but that’s about it for public areas – there’s no casino here.

Eating and drinking

Mix – a restaurant and lounge on the top floor – is pricey, but worth it for the sensational views of the Strip (it’s probably my favourite viewpoint in the whole of Vegas). Staying at THEhotel gets you into the lounge for $10 (it’s $20 for non guests). There’s The Café, on the ground floor, too, but I’d recommend heading into Mandalay Bay for its fantastic food choices.

Leisure facilities

There’s a lovely spa and a gym, but you’ll have to hit up Mandalay Bay for a pool.

Service

Discreet but solid. It’s kind of like having your own butler service.

Who stays there

Mainly couples – the views make it pretty unparalleled for a romantic break. Because it's quiet, it'd be good for older travellers, too.

Price advice

There's a daily resort fee of $15.
