My husband and I stayed at this beautiful hotel MLK weekend 2013 (jan 18-21). We have nothing but compliments for this hotel. It is located in the City Center next to the Aria Resort and Casino. What's wonderful about the Mandarin Oriental is the fact that is a non-casino luxury hotel in the midst of everything. You can go out the front door of the hotel and see all of the Vegas strip but have the knowledge that when you come back you can relax in this beautiful setting without the noise of a typical vegas casino hotel. The hotel is obviously much smaller than the big casino hotels but that is what makes it so nice. The hotel lobby is on the 23rd floor. The staff is very helpful. You take one elevator up to the lobby but then have private access to your floor. We stayed in a city scape room for $265 a night which we thought was a very fair price. Note that all of the Vegas hotels now also charge what they call a "resort fee" or in the case of the Mandarin Oriental they call the "golden access" fee. This is just a very fancy way of saying you pay to use the internet and the gym, etc. It is a mandatory extra $24 dollars a night. We loved how the room had electronic drapes and everything was acccessible from the TV. Pretty cool. Another neat feature is what they call a "valet closet". We wanted ice in our room and basically the housekeepiing staff can deliver anything to you through this closet without having to knock on your door. Pretty cool. We opened the valet closet door from our side of the room and voila there was our ice. Makes it nice so you don't have to get out of your pajamas or whatever. Our view for the city scape room was a pretty good sideways view of the southern strip facing the New York New York Casino and Mandalay Bay hotels. Overall we had a very pleasureable trip and even saw a TV celebrity (Ty Pennington from Extreme Home Makeover was staying there that weekend). Last big tip: Unless money is no object and you don't care or you are unable to walk about 10 minutes there is really no reason to pay for the valet parking at the Mandarin Oriental (note: they only offer valet unlike the other hotels and it is a steep $30.00 a night). Instead, do the free self parking at the Aria resort and casino and walk about 10 minutes and there you are at the hotel. It really wasn't a problem at all and we did have luggage but it was pretty easy. I especially didn't mind because it saved us 90 dollars! Overall great stay. Only real con is the resort fee, but unfortunately in Vegas every hotel now charges some kind of extra rate. The Mandarin Hotel is definitely worth considering for your Vegas vacation!
