MGM Resorts: Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino
Mandalay Bay has also completed the final phase of its resort-wide remodel of more than 3,000 guestrooms and suites. The accommodations have refreshing color palettes and modern designs in three distinct collections — the Resort Collection, the Suite Collections and the Luxury Collection.
While the Resort Collection accommodations come in King- or Queen-size options, the Suite Collection begins the offerings of one- and two-bedroom suites. Rich jewel tone fabrics, natural wood and stone accent these rooms, ranging from 610 to 1,450 square feet, including multiple seating and dining areas, and a large table in the media and living area.
The largest of these suites are the Panoramic Two-Bedroom King Suite and Panoramic Two-Bedroom Queen Suite, the difference being the Queen Suite has two queen beds in the second bedroom as opposed to a second king bed. They both include a separate dining and living space with a wet bar, seating for 11 and two 46-inch TVs; floor-to-ceiling windows with view of the Strip, beach and mountains; private en-suites in each bedroom with 15-inch in-mirror TVs, twin vanities and a glass-enclosed shower with a large soaking tub in the king rooms.
For guests seeking an even further elevated experience, the Luxury Collection has spectacular one- to four-bedroom suites. New, vibrant décor accompanies floor-to-ceiling windows and elegant dining and bar areas. The three options are the Media Suite, Conference Suite and Vista Suite.
Both the Media and Conference suites are 2,170 square feet, with living spaces that seat 10 and boast a 65-inch TV; a separate media area has an additional 65-inch TV with surround-sound and flexible seating.
Located on the 30th floor, with 180-degree views of Las Vegas is the Vista Suite, which totals 1,705 square feet and has only one king bed. There is a full-size wet bar with a 46-inch TV and seating for 14, while the living room has floor-to-ceiling windows, and a 55-inch LED TV. The bathrooms include in-mirror TVs, twin vanities and a dual steam shower with an oversized soaking tub.
Reservations to the above accommodations also include complimentary access to Foundation Room (excludes special events and holidays), and complimentary Spa Facility Access. Spa Facility Passes include the use of the redwood sauna, eucalyptus steam room, heated Whirlpools (warm and hot), cold plunge, relaxation lounge, gym and vanity amenities.
This marks the conclusion of an approximately $100 million remodel that began in 2015.

Wynn Las Vegas
Travelers are seeking more “live like a local” experiences and Las Vegas can provide some fairly unique opportunities for that. We hear that Wynn Las Vegas has updated its Master Class series, with options ranging from learning how odds are set and mastering your poker face. You can also polish your expertise in all things wine, whiskey and cigar tasting. For the more mainstream, classes are available in cake baking, chocolate or Champagne. Sweet.
We were curious about “Perfecting Your Poker Face” in particular and learned that participants attend a poker master class hosted by Wynn’s director of poker operations. In addition to helping players manage their facial expressions, the workshop covers the rules, tactics and tips to help outplay your opponents. In the Oddsmaker for a Day class, Wynn’s executive director of race & sports operations will show guests what it’s like to run a complex Race and Sports Book operation and how to be an oddsmaker for Wynn Las Vegas. They will also learn how Avello sets odds for major events like the Super Bowl and the Oscars. Participants must be 21 years or older to attend.
Tickets for the Wynn Master Class Series are available by contacting the Wynn Las Vegas concierge at 702-770-7070.
