LAS VEGAS - Today, Las Vegas, one of the world’s most dynamic cities, celebrates the highly-anticipated arrival of Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) iconic luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences brings a new spirit to The Strip, where graceful service meets modern luxury and intrigue transforms into unexpected moments. Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences, formerly Mandarin Oriental, is operated by Hilton Management Services and will be reimagined with newly-styled rooms and redesigned public spaces in 2019.

“Las Vegas continues to be one of the most celebrated and exciting cities in the world, and a destination where visitors seek both extraordinary and remarkable moments,” said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head, Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton. “The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas – delivering on an unrelenting commitment to True Waldorf Service – will be the perfect environment for guests visiting Las Vegas who want to Live Unforgettable and create ever-lasting memories that will extend beyond their stay at the hotel.”

Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is steps from world-class shopping and entertainment and neighbors the 20,000 seat T-Mobile Arena.

“Two remarkable personalities are being united as Waldorf Astoria arrives in the legendary city of Las Vegas,” says Donald Bowman, General Manager. “With this meeting of two icons, we can afford guests with tailor-made moments, offering inspirational environments both within the hotel and throughout our exciting city.”

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences serves those guests looking to indulge in sophisticated sensations, then escape to their own private utopia.  Boasting 389 guestrooms and 225 residences, including 55 suites and three expansive Presidential Suites, Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is set in a luxurious, non-gaming, non-smoking environment. As new design plans and vision emerge, the hotel has embarked on an 18-month journey to reimagine the property’s guestrooms.  The current accommodations boast a sleek, contemporary design with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame spectacular views of The Strip and surrounding desert landscape. Surprise and delight design features include a discreet valet closet, allowing for deliveries without disruption.

Every taste can be satisfied with the property’s globally-inspired cuisine including world-class artistry by Michelin-Star rated Chef Pierre Gagnaire. With exhilarating views, inspired dishes and mesmerizing suspended wine loft, Chef Gagnaire’s award-winning restaurant, Twist, is the first-ever U.S. eatery to serve his legendary interpretation of classic French cuisine. The SkyBar on the 23rd floor brings a distinctive mix of treasured décor and sophisticated ambiance, the perfect accompaniments to the spirited cocktail collection handcrafted by master mixologists. The highly-coveted Tea Lounge offers three afternoon tea times serving the finest blends with sweet accompaniments and paired with unrivaled views overlooking The Strip.

Wellness

Complementing its signature hospitality, the hotel features various spaces for guests looking to escape to a personal sanctuary. The 27,000-square-foot spa spans two entire guest floors, offering a deeply serene environment to pamper the body and re-engage the senses. At the Waldorf Astoria Spa, a new suite of services features a completely customized experience tailored to personal skin qualities, aesthetic expectations and a holistic analysis. The Spa features an array of therapies, seven private couple’s suites, multiple relaxation experiences, a Hamman and a Zen Foot Spa, creating a complete restorative and relaxing journey.

The 8th floor pool deck, a desert retreat tucked away from high-rise towers, offers a chic respite with stunning views, two exquisite pools, two whirlpools and a plunge pool. Redefining relaxation with unobtrusive service, guests can enjoy serenity in poolside cabanas.

Meetings and Events

The property offers 12,000-square feet of stylish, distraction-free function space, delivering perfection on a grand scale and features natural lighting within each meeting room. The glamorous Waldorf Ballroom, for instance, is situated three floors above Las Vegas Blvd and features a unique walk-out balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows featuring views of the Strip.
