Delano Las Vegas Panoramic Suite
The VegasTripping Review 2015
After grabbing brunchfast at Della's Kitchen during a recent trip, I left convinced that I had to stay at Delano. The rebranded former THEhotel caught my fancy some time ago with their daringly delicious design and decor. Now, with desire and opportunity firmly in hand, I jumped at the chance, booked one night at Delano and put the pedal to the desert metal.
I arrived at Delano, left my car with valet and headed inside, walking between a giant boulder sliced in half...
...past the Asian-inspired, bamboo bar...
...into the serene, comfortable vestibule fitted with drippy candle-like curtain pillars, low slung furniture, and warm cozy vibes...
...towards a majestic, drapery framed, gravity defying port hole mobile made of rocks...
...where I stopped and stared at this for a long time.
Earth, wood, metal... elements of serenity and simplicity. Instantly I'm bathed in a soothing comfort, a calm in the center of the casino storm. I can sorta sense the hustle and bustle, but it isn't at Delano.
In the time it took to walk from the valet to the front desk, the stress of a four-hour high-speed desert derby has left my body. I'm chill, like really chill. Three Delano employees have greeted me and asked if they could be of assistance at every juncture of this 50 yard stroll.
I arrive at reception to find three employees manning the front desk. There is also another free standing desk on the right side of the lobby and a VIP check in office on the left side. After a very short wait, I'm called to the reception desk. The employee asks the usual questions along with the icebreaker "what brings you to town?" We do business and she slides a packet holding two sky blue plastic key fobs with DELANO written on them in Helvetica Neue Ultra Light, all caps. She points me towards the guest elevators, back the way I came.
The check in process at Delano makes the Wynn Las Vegas resort lobby feel like a sweaty mosh pit. Check them cray bitches armed with the Louis Vuitton luggage.
