Waldorf Astoria to Take Over Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

The termination is consequent to the sale of the hotel by CityCenter Holdings, a joint venture between MGM Resorts and Infinity World Development Corporation.

Big news from Sin City: Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts is set to open a new luxury hotel in Las Vegas. The Hilton brand reports that it will convert the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas into the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas as of August 2018. Waldorf Astoria said it will assume full operation of the property with plans to renovate the hotel.

Previously, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group had reported that it will cease managing the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas on August 30 following the sale of the hotel by CityCenter Holdings, LLC, a joint venture between MGM Resorts and Infinity World Development Corp. At the time, Mandarin Oriental did not disclose the name of the new owner.

The hotel will mark the first Waldorf Astoria property in Las Vegas. When it opens it will offer Waldorf’s Personal Concierge service, as well as a number of other experiences, such as new dining concepts, views of the Strip from the 23rd floor bar, helicopter rides, spa retreats and more.

In a written statement Martin Rinck, global head, luxury & lifestyle group at Hilton, said that the signing of the new hotel is part of the brand’s growth in the western United States, which includes the recent opening of the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills and a recently announced property in San Francisco. Waldorf is also developing a new hotel in Antigua.

The property is located at 3752 S Las Vegas Blvd, directly on the Strip and near to the ARIA Resort & Casino, the Bellagio fountains, The Park and the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena.

Mandarin Oriental first opened the property in 2009, and it became one of only 13 properties worldwide to have received the Triple Forbes Five Star Award, which includes three five-star ratings for the hotel, spa and signature restaurant.

All told, Waldorf Astoria has nearly 20 properties in the development pipeline, including the recently announced Waldorf Astoria London Admiralty Arch and the Waldorf Astoria Maldives. Rinck said that, while the Americas are important for the Waldorf Astoria brand, it is continuing to focus on expanding worldwide.
