THEhotel is situated behind Mandalay Bay and is considered an all suites hotel. Normally, the rates for a standard suite is around $109, but because I stayed during New Years Eve weekend, I paid $209 which was still reasonable. I booked through the American Express Fine Hotel & Resorts program which gives me early noon check-in, complimentary room upgrade (if available), hotel amenity ($100 spa credit), $80 worth of breakfast credit ($40/per person), and guaranteed 4pm late checkout.
I arrived at the hotel around 4pm and the hotel was relatively empty at the check-in counter. I inquired about the complimentary suite upgrade and the clerk informed me that the hotel was sold out for the night.
I must have stayed at THEhotel at least five times on an Fine Hotel & Resorts rate and not once have I ever been upgraded from a standard suite. The standard suite is pretty large in itself and you can definitely party it up in Vegas and entertain guests comfortably in the living room. There are two restrooms in the suite with one being in the foyer and the other in the bedroom. In addition, there is a wet-bar just in case you need to clean up after the party. Rumor has it THEhotel will be re-branded as the Delano Las Vegas in the future. I’m not sure if the Delano Las Vegas will be part of the American Express Fine Hotel & Resorts program when the changeover happens.
This review is a two part series in which I will review the spa and breakfast at THEhotel. Stay tuned…
