... everywhere and massive shops, roads 4 lanes each way that you cant ever cross when you need to, and people everywhere. Heres some of the first things I noticed: you can literally drink anywhere you like. There are stalls that sell beer and spirits, other stalls set up for slushies, daquarie bars and so much more. You buy, you get a massive concotion of alcohol in a huge plastic tube and sip on it. Doesnt matter what your drinking, your allowed to take it anywhere, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Thehotel At Mandalay Bay Las Vegas
This was the most amazing hotel I've ever stayed in. I will never say at another hotel in Vegas. I preferred this to the Bellagio.
THE HOTEL...my new favorite, if only I could afford it!
I could truly live at THE HOTEL. It is plush & beautiful. Our suite had floor to ceiling windows. There were 2 seperate rooms, the living room had a desk, a couch (not hide-a-bed),but, comfy enough to sleep on & 2 comfy chairs. There was a wet bar with fridge & pricey items inside and a wonderful plasma TV. There was also 1/2 a bathroom off room 1. Room 2 was the bedroom, plenty big enough for 4 girls celebrating their 40th birthdays. We had 2 queen size beds, the same beautiful windows overlooking the luxor pool. The wardrobe had room to hang clothes on both sides with a plasma TV in the middle. The safe was under the TV, you put your own code in to unlock the safe. There was a shelf to put shoes or bags in the wardrobe,but we did feel that we needed extra space for clothes & suitcases. There was an iron & ironing board,but,FYI, no coffee maker, plenty of coffee to be purchased just downstairs.
The master bath was delicious. Spacious & well lighted with a door seperating the toilet from the shower/bath area. FYI the shower is completely clear glass which is fine for a couple,but, one of our group had a rude awakening when walking into the bathroom the 1st morning(this is after a night of hard celebrating) & thinking her friend would be tucked behind a shower curtain, only to walk in & hear them both scream & laugh. Of course we all had a big belly laugh over that incident. The tub is huge & one morning after being the 1st to be ready, I put my luxurious white robe on ,which they supply, put pillows in the tub & hung out & chatted while the others put their make up on. The amenities were top of the line & bountiful. There was a small plasma TV in that area too.
Housekeeping came later in the day,but, they did come & were fantastic as was room service. You pay like a king for this suite,but, you also feel like a queen while staying there!
Our only suggestion is to make sure they aren't doing construction during your stay. Did anyone else stay during Aug 8-12 & wake up promptly at 8 a.m. EVERY morning to the sickening sound of a jackhammer? ( I guess it wouldn't have been so bad if we didn't go to bed at 5 am, but, this IS Vegas!) It was a jackhammer too because we could see it! They were working construction on the top floors. This lasted several hours off & on. Just when we'd nod our weary heads back to sleep boom boom booom...ugh!) We realize there is work to be done, so, just a warning! We did call the desk to see if they could accomadate us for our discomfort,but, they had heard that one before, just offered us a late check out! ha ha!
It was 111 degrees, there was an extreme temperature warning in affect( Never heard that before). So we didn't go to pool. Wish we would have.
We didn't feel out of place being 39 & almost 40 yrs. Didn't feel at all like this was a 25 yr crowd. Seemed to be a great mix of ages. Las Vegas is such a blast, but, we always had fun coming back to Mandalay Bay & hitting the Island bar to watch the band or going over to the Reef. Never made it in the blues club.
The Mandalay Buffet is yummy, but, our favorite was in the Paris.. I think it is called The Vllage Buffet.
Overall, I would love to stay at THE HOTEL again. It is very elegant,but,very pricey. Make sure to make your reservations for THE HOTEL & not Mandalay Bay or 4 Seasons which consist of the top 4 floors of Mandalay bay. THE HOTEL is totally seperate when making reservations & from Mandalay Bay you can walk right into THE HOTEL, but the decor is changed ( very elegant) & the casinos have been left behind.
The monorail is running & will go all the way to Sahara.
$10 a day or $3.50 per ride it is hard to find in the MGM, but easier from Ballys. Took the bus to Freemont st...took an hour,funny to go on with friends. Always had a car in Vegas before,but, not bad without,even on the far end of strip...by the way, it's much cheaper for 4 to cab back to the airport than to talke a shuttle. Remember: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! Enjoy immensely!
THE HOTEL WAS A+ BUT VEGAS HAS CHANGED
Had not been to Vegas in 10 years. We decided to take our third trip this past Labor Day. We got in Friday night and the town as well as the Hotel at Mandalay Bay was packed. It was so packed that the standard suite was sold out. The front desk upgraded us to a "V Suite" because of the overbooking at no extra charge.
You might know that all the rooms at "The Hotel" are suites, but the V Suites are all corner rooms with more windows. A really great room with three plasma TV sets. We made sure to spend some time enjoying the suite. The 24 hour restaurant at The Hotel was excellent. It was high quality food/service, and you did not need a reservation!
The room service was also great. The adults only pool was great, and worth the extra 20 bucks a person to avoid the crowds and children if you are a couple alone! This lavish all suite location off the strip is worth the extra cash.
The only reason I gave it 4 instaed of 5 stars was Vegas itself. The town has really changed since I started going to LV in 1992! Too many college kids and parents with small kids in tow. Not to mention junkets of foreigners. They all love to wait in very long lines. The cool and hip Vegas Bugsy and "Da Boyz" invented right after WWII has been replaced by a Disney like corporate monster that trys to be all things to too many market segments.
I also went to several other properties, and I also highly recommend that you hit the Venetian to get a bit of a feel for the "Old Las Vegas" with a lot of showmanship thrown in to boot-take a gondola ride!
As for me I'll go to Tahoe if I go back to Nevada to catch a show, gamble, and party with the adults.
It was a nice change
I was in Vegas on business, not pleasure and wanted to stay at a hotel where I wouldn't be disturbed by wild partiers. The hotel is great for that. The only complaint I had was the noise coming from the Freeway next to the Hotel. You would think with what they spent to build the place, they would have installed better insulated windows.
On my second day I asked to be moved to a non-freeway side of the hotel and was quickly accomodated. It was pretty easy because the hotel was only at 50% occupancy. Just to be safe, when you make your reservation, request a room on the non-freeway side.
Hotel staff was great, valets were quick and polite.
Would definitely stay there again.
Flaws in Customer Service, Otherwise a Great Hotel!
Checking in at 8pm on Labor Day probably wasn't THEbest time to check into THEhotel. I think the poor hotel was so sabotaged by weekend partygoers, the hotel staff didn't know which way was up!
When I checked in at the front desk, the gentleman told me the King bed room I had reserved was not available, and that I would have to take a room with 2 Queens instead. Since my husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary, I told him that one bed was mandatory! He eventually "found something" but explained that it would be "smoking optional". Just wanting to get settled, I acccepted the room, even though we had a non-smoking reservation.
When we checked into our room, the smoke was the least of our problems. The room had not been serviced at all! There were towels on the floor, cigarettes in the ashtrays, garbage cans overflowing, and beds unmade. I made a call to the front desk, and they apologized, and said they would switch our room immediately.
After the bell desk brought us a new set of keys, we set off to our second room. When we got inside, we found it was even worse than the first! Let's just say we found "presents" left in the toilet! By this time, my call to the front desk was a little more agitated. Finally, on the 3rd try, and an hour later, they were able to move us to a room on the 6th floor, with a view of a wall (the other 2 rooms had strip views, and were on the 25th floor!) The agent at the front desk assured us that we would be compensated in our daily room rate to make up for the inconvenience.
After we settled in, I must say, it was a beautiful room. The bed was comfy, the bathtub was grand, and the bath products were heavenly! We thoroughly enjoyed our room, as it was very quiet and far away from the hustle and bustle of Vegas. Having a second bathroom and 3 televisions were neat little perks.
Of course upon checkout, I had to argue with them about the room compensation, and the supervisor finally agreed to give me a free nights stay. I thought that was a fair compromise, and argued no further.
All they have to work on now is their housekeeping/front desk services, and they will receive a rave review from me! The property all around is very impressive..they just need to smooth out some of the rough edges!
N-I-C-E!!! Worth It!
Stayed here the last week of August. Rooms are above satisfaction. Very clean, staff is great, very quiet and well-appointed. Plasma/Flat screen/LCD TVs in every room. 1 1/2 bathrooms, soaking tub, comfy beds, nice decor. Beach chairs are scarce at the pool/beach. Hotel is far from everything but that can be good too. Would definitely stay again!
Most impressed with THEHotel
I just returned from at 3 night stay at THEHotel at Mandalay Bay. Midweek, the price was just $20 more than the regular Mandalay Bay room price offered for my conference. It was more than worth the difference. I am very allergic to smoke and very much appreciated not having to go through the casino to get to the room. The atmosphere when you enter the lobby is quiet and elegant -- very different from the main hotel. Our suite included a beautiful living room with a wet bar, sitting area with a couch, chair, coffee table, end tables, large desk with printer/fax machine, separate bedroom, huge bathroom in addition to a half-bath off the living room. There was a huge flat screen tv in the living room, a slightly smaller (still huge) tv in the bedroom and another small plasma tv in the bathroom. The decor is very contemporary. We were actually able to comfortably entertain friends in our suite, which is not usually possible in a regular hotel room.
The Room - very swanky & well appointed - plasma tvs were great; bed is very cozy but no turndown service; The Coffee - NONE in the room; The Bath - awesome, very nice products, amazing robes, huge Roman style bath & very nice tv; The Pool - oh the pool - you have to join the commoners of Mandalay Bay & fight for your lounge chairs...we recommend getting there at 8:30am sharp to claim your chair - very annoying; also, wear your best walking shoes as the pool is about 1/2 mile from THE Hotel (through the casino of course); The location - the good is that it is away from the casino, the bad is that it is away from everything - you have to walk everywhere! The Scene - very chic & trendy...dress your best, great people watching. Overall, this is a very nice hotel, a very clever concept.
Loved The Hotel
Stayed at this fabulous hotel from Saturday, 8/28, through Monday. This is one classy hotel -- the funny thing is, everything is called simply "The _____" e.g. "The Cafe", "The Lounge", and even in your bathroom the toilet paper says "The T.P.". This all-suite hotel is furnished with modern taste including 2 large flat-screen t.v.'s and a 15-inch flat-screen in the bathroom, huge tub and stand-in shower of black marble, and a total of 1 and 1/2 bathrooms. The beds you could sleep in all day. And, of course, Mandalay has your choice of 8 pools including one you pay to go to, "Moorea", that's clothing optional. What's great is that you can only go to these facilities if you're a guest -- good thing 'cause it controls the crowds. An amazing hotel!
Great non-Vegas style hotel
Only booked one night here- wish it had been more. Rooms have a separate living room with 42" plasma, office w/fax, great honor bar, couch, dvd player. Perfect space for a small game watching party. The suite has 2 bathrooms- a half off the living room and a huge one off the bedroom. The design is cool, modern. Neutral colors and dark hues. Floor to Ceiling Glass Windows. Comfortable bedding. Great amenities. Telephones where you need them and an extra plasma tv in the bath. Quiet and well insulated. Unobstrusive staff took care to be there when needed but not a bother. Only slam was no coffee-maker. The front desk staff was fast, efficient and helpful. Less expensive than their competition (being the Ritz and Four Seasons)- Best value in Vegas in my opinion.
