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.  

SaltRock Southwest Kitchen at Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona has a new executive chef, Lindsey Dale. She has designed a completely new menu of Southwestern-inspired cuisine featuring light and seasonal dishes and integrating fresh ingredients from the Verde Valley. The restaurant’s outdoor patio offers guests unobstructed views of Cleopatra Rock and Snoopy Rock.
