Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV, USA MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development Adamson Associates, Architect-of-Record; Tihany Design, Interior Designer Hospitality, Residential 1.1 million ft2 / 101,000 m2 Gold 

The 392-key Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas hotel is housed in a distinctive, angular tower rising above Las Vegas Boulevard. Express shuttle elevators deliver guests to the 23rd floor sky lobby, which provides dramatic views of CityCenter and The Strip.

The 47-storey building is conceived as a city within a city. It offers an urban oasis within the frenetic energy of Las Vegas. The hotel welcomes guests with a serene courtyard and bamboo garden drop-off area, creating a sense of seclusion.

Simple, elegant interior design and lustrous materials are combined with subtle oriental influence to create a sophisticated, relaxing atmosphere. The scale of the rooms is reflected in the pattern of the façade. Glazed shadow boxes and custom painted aluminum articulate the full-length windows, painting staggered vertical lines across the shimmering façade.

The hotel offers guests a two-floor spa, a salon, a pool, a fitness center, a yoga studio, and a private sculpture garden. Within the building are a sushi bar, tea lounge, patisserie, café, bar, and restaurant on the sky lobby floor. The retail and ballroom space in the tower’s podium and its grand pre-function foyer make the building both a destination for visitors and a perfect venue for events.

The project also benefits from a super-efficient central plant, smart-room control system, daylighting controls, reduced-flow water fixtures, and a green-power procurement program. Stormwater is captured and used for landscape irrigation. The project’s environmental attributes contribute to a LEED Gold certification.
