Delano Las Vegas Panoramic Suite

The VegasTripping Review 2015

Posted by Chuckmonster

I hopped in the elevator, hit 26. Ding. I get off. One thing hasn't changed in the transformation from THEhotel to Delano - the hallways are super dark. I've amped the levels on this photo so you can see what the elevator landing looks like. The wall features a small table with a delicious mid-century modern wood Danish style chair. Lovely.

The hallway features carpeting and artwork that highlight natural landscapes, the sinew of sediment and psychedelic reflective grain of split and polished stone.

My room - #26815 - is located at the absolute end of the hallway... a rare corner room. I wave the key against the sensor and... *click* the door unlocks and I head inside.

I'm sad. I'm sad because this confirms that there is no THEtp http://www.vegastripping.com/images/features_thehotel_THEtp.jpg

@nodeuces that made me sad too.

Nice review and great photos. Still, I miss THEHotel. After Wynn it was my second favorite in Vegas.
I just can't get behind the white, sparse decor. I also think what amounts to a to-go box for room service at night is pathetic. Perhaps I would like it better in person.

I love the Danish chair, the fancy ice bucket, and space in the mini-fridge for personal effects. I hate the sparseness of everything else.

Of course, it’s still a corner suite with a killer view. And that’s worth its weight in gold-plated coffee-table legs, no matter how much the designers otherwise try to bore me.

The thing you liked the least — the original aspects of the master bath — is what I like the most, since it brings some color and contrast to the room. That said, I’m not a fan of all the wear and tear you discovered in those original fixtures.

I was going to ask why Malin+Goetz toiletries garnered a "Wow," but thank you for elaborating later on. For whatever reason, I didn't particularly care about Delano before, but I would consider staying after this review.

Great review! I loved TheHotel when it opened. MGM let it run down and this rename/refurb comes up short for me. Rooms are too minimalist and the bathrooms needed a refresh. Sad, because it is a great property.

I loved THEHotel, this isn't doing it for me either. Thanks for the great review

Very nice review as always

As usual, Chuck provides a very thorough and informative review…thanks!

The wife and I stayed in a panoramic suite back in March (our room number also ended in 815 as did Chuck’s)…I agree with all what Chuck said and will add in a few additional comments.

The hotel lobby is ‘calm’ … no crowds of people just visiting, looking around, and taking pictures plus no casino hustle/bustle and noise …you do not have to walk thru the casino to get to the parking garage, in fact a short walk to the car from the hotel room elevators…also the proximity to the I-15 entrance/exit using Frank Sinatra Blvd was a positive.

Wife said Delano spa was really nice and received exceptional and friendly service...neither of us had any issues or problems with the hotel room wifi…we never had to wait for a Delano elevator, one big problem with MB is the slow and insufficient number of elevators.

The only negatives of this hotel that we noticed were…poor shower water pressure; small closet, which was difficult to hang items in the closet due to the safe in the way; and only two small dresser drawers. During our visit, you had to hike clear across campus and use the MB fitness center since you had to pay extra to use Delano’s. Today you can use Delano’s. But we did use Delano’s one day when MB had an hour wait to use their center…Delano fitness center small and not that impressive for how nice everything else is in the hotel.

Before this trip, wife was a Vdara fan…after our March trip, she has no hesitation to stay at Delano again.

Dear god they love rocks there. The rooms like nice, but a little plain. I kind of like the way THEHotel was decorated, but then again their rooms were a little darker and I'm a sucker for dark room schemes.

I will miss theHotel! I stayed there twice once on a invite when it first opened. It was the oddest, coolest, strangest hotel I have stayed in. The long hallway connecting it to Mandalay Bay was like a rushing wind, and it felt like you were in Gotham City or in a hotel out of Bladerunner.

I had a great time with the best memory strangely being a good friend looking out the window and of all the sights was the In and Out burger he commented on lol.

Love sleeping with the curtains open in Vegas too...why not, why wouldn't ya?
