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.  

For the first time, all five boroughs of New York City are lighting up rainbow in celebration of WorldPride's first time being hosted in the United States. Additionally, NYC & Company and LGBT MPA are partnering to offer a MICE familiarization trip for LGBTQ+ meeting and event planners. 

 

IACC's 2019 Meeting Room of the Future Report reveals that sustainability is a top priority of meeting planners. Of those who responded to the survey, 44 percent said they believe that ethical operations and sustainable practices will be one of the most important elements for venues by 2024. A major concern of meeting planners is food waste, with 62 percent of respondents noting that they will consider how a venue manages food waste before booking.

 

Located near Austin, South Congress Hotel and Hotel Ella are positioned as the perfect summer venues. Each hotel has offerings for a wide array of events and can accommodate corporate and social functions alike.
