Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to renovate the Mandarin Oriental on the Las Vegas Strip and transform it into the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas in August 2018.  

When the property opens with its new face and name, it will be the brand’s first property in the market. The hotel will offer personal concierges, innovative dining concepts, views of The Strip from the hotel’s exclusive 23rd floor bar, helicopter rides, spa retreats and more. 

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of a Waldorf Astoria in the western part of the U.S., and in the heart of such a dynamic, internationally beloved city like Las Vegas,” said Martin Rinck, global head, Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton. 

Located at 3752 S Las Vegas Blvd, the property is situated on the Las Vegas Strip and sits near some of the city’s most exciting landmarks including the famed fountains of Bellagio and is steps away from the entertainment hub featuring ARIA, The Park and the 20,000 seat T-Mobile Arena. 

Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas will participate in Hilton Honors®, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 14 distinct brands, whose members have access to benefits including a personal concierge and complimentary Wi-Fi.  

IACC, a global meetings association, recently announced it will create its first-ever experiential showcase of its Meeting Room of the Future research at MPI World Education Congress (WEC). The installation will allow attendees to explore how meetings and conferences are evolving and will focus on three different areas: visioneering, solve and show me.

 

Over a period of 13 years, Colorado Meetings + Events has hosted two “Best of” award celebrations at the Denver Art Museum (DAM). So it was fun to get back to the museum in January 2019 to hear about and see DAM’s $150 revitalization project underway and experience an exhibition that I’ve been hearing so much about.

 

U.S. News & World Report recently released its “Best Hotels” list for 2019 and 22 of BENCHMARK’s hotels and resorts were named to the list.

Highlighted honors includ three silver badge winners that placed in the top 30 percent of all ranked luxury hotels within a destination. They include Villas of Grand Cypress in Orlando, Benchmark’s newest hotel, La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio, and Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort in Curacao.
