THEhotel at Mandalay Bay
A new model of understated luxury on the Las Vegas Strip
Las Vegas - January 8, 2004 - Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino has become synonymous with elegance and style in Las Vegas and around the world. With the addition of a second hotel to its already world-renowned complex, Mandalay Bay aims to raise the bar still higher.
THEhotel at Mandalay Bay ushers in a new model of understated luxury to the Las Vegas Strip, affording guests a haven of sophistication and service on par with the best boutique hotels in the world. It's elegantly appointed suites and stylish lobby areas set a tone of confident discretion, while it's carefully tailored roster of amenities provide an unparalleled atmosphere for attending to both business and pleasure.
THEhotel is a stand-alone structure, serviced by its own entrance, lobby, lounges, cafe, gym and spa, yet still offers easy access to all the offerings for which Mandalay Bay has become famous. Visitors arrive via a dedicated valet service located in a covered garage, through a beautifully proportioned lobby with rich finishes in a restrained palette of black, brown, and cream.
Beneath a 30-foot Arturo Herrera mural, an intimate bank of nine guest check-in stations greets guests and assures a smooth, stress-free transition into THEhotel's ambiance. In the lobby, guests also have at their disposal the 24-hour offerings of the store, a luxurious sundries shop; an adjacent casual dining establishment named the café; as well as the discrete lobby gathering spot called the lounge, which features a bar, billiards tables, and inviting furnishings. Also part of the ground floor environment, the coffee bar, the business center, guest-use internet stations, and a reservations desk where guests find assistance in making their ideal dinner plans and tee times.
Although THEhotel is abundant with the style and comforts sought after by the upscale leisure traveler, it has been specifically designed to offer a new level of support to the business guest.
A special feature of the property is the flexible menu of private conference rooms on four floors of the hotel, where a wide variety of business gatherings can be hosted. These richly furnished rooms can be outfitted as private boardrooms, reception spaces, classrooms, or theatres, and are outfitted with up to the minute electronic and digital infrastructure. Business suites identical to the standard rooms throughout the hotel are also situated on these floors for convenient access by the guests overseeing their respective events.
The standard suite at THEhotel is the largest of any hotel in Las Vegas, offering 725 square feet of luxury accommodations. The layout of each unit is also unique, creating the perfect environment for entertaining with discretion, or relaxing in style. Modern furnishings in rich earth tones and dark woods bespeak an updated mid-century sensibility, while each separate living area features a 42-inch plasma television, half-bath for guests, private bar, and plush upholstered chairs and sofa. Separate from these comfortable spaces are the bedrooms, which feature 32-inch flat screen TV's, ample dark wood armoires, down comforters and pillows, high thread-count linens, robes, slippers, and pillow-top mattresses.
Large bathrooms with dual sinks, separate, glass-enclosed tub and shower, and enclosed water closet are appointed with granite, marble and chrome. Bathrooms also feature wall-mounted 13-inch flat screen TV's. All suites are serviced by high-speed internet connections and have a fax/printer/copier at the desk in the salon.
More deluxe accommodations are also available among the 1,118 suites at THEhotel, including the View Suites with stunning views at the ends of each glass-walled wing of the building. On the uppermost floors of the building, 28 premium suites ranging from 1,500 to 4,500 square feet are available for an even greater sense of space and pampering.
A draw unto itself at THEhotel is the $11 million Bathhouse, a state of the art gym and spa that occupies a double-height space on the second floor. Designed by the specialist firm Richardson Sadeki and overseen by the experienced spa impresario Roberta Rolnick, this 15,000 square foot complex will redefine relaxation and rejuvenation in Las Vegas. Clad in dark stone and shaped by a reductive sequence of geometric spaces, light, and water, the architecture will inspire serenity in tandem with the cutting edge treatments. Exclusive licenses with elite product lines such as Aromapothecary, Carita, and Eminence will be available only at the Bathhouse, while an innovative and extensive array of therapeutic services are offered. Steamrooms, saunas, whirlpools, cold baths, a waterfall corridor, mud baths, innumerable facials, massage in many forms, manicures, pedicures, masques, and wraps are all part of the Bathhouse experience.
THEhotel will offer what no hotel can currently offer in Las Vegas: cosmopolitan style and elegance matched with the ultimate in business support and spa services, all steps away from the unparalleled entertainment offerings of Mandalay Bay.
There is a reason it's called THEhotel.
