Update: Delayed Delano Las Vegas Walks Back Dates

Mandalay Bay Delano las Vegas Delayed

Here's a quick update to last week's story about Delano Las Vegas being delayed.

Delano Las Vegas, the rebranded THEhotel, was originally scheduled to open in Fall 2013. As we reported last week it had been delayed until February 2014, with reservations beginning to be accepted in July and a teaser that some of the new Delano Las Vegas room offerings would come online in October 2013.

Well... Morgans Hotel Group has since excised mention of the July reservation availability AND removed the excited promise/threat that some of their new rooms may be available in October. In marketing, they call this "pulling up the anchor." The Delano Las Vegas boat is untethered to external time line and able to tap dance freely on the imaginary seas of Mandalay's bay while their listing ship is righted. Unless, of course, MGM decides the jig is up and voids the rebrand agreement for some reason or another. As of now, that isn't happening. MGM's RedefiningResort.com website is still sticking with the February 2014 Delano Las Vegas opening dates.

Comments & Discussion:

Not good. The Hotel needs a refresh badly, it's starting to look pretty beat up. Even on TripAdvisor management has referenced the Delano change as an answer to fixing up the place.

There are probably ten people outside of Vegas who give a damn about this Delano switcheroo.
