A full moon behind Mandalay Bay
Mandalay Bay & Delano - 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119. Phone 877-632-7800
Rated by The Travel Channel (in 2004) as the best Las Vegas vacation resort (considering gaming, price, amenities,
activities, etc.) in Las Vegas. You'll find The House of Blues, Rock Lobster, Red Square, Aureole,
a shark reef and fake beach all on the Mandalay Bay property. Delano is marketed as if it's a separate
property, but it's a second room tower to Mandalay Bay. Red Square is famous for its
bar that has a frozen solid sheet of ice on top, to keep your drink cold; and its array
of vodka selections. However, we stopped by there once and it looked like some ultra-fancy place where you need to
wear a tuxedo and make reservations; so we never went in.
While some visitors to Las Vegas may think that the location (Mandalay Bay is currently the southernmost property on
the strip) is not desireable, this is a huge resort with plenty to keep
you busy, and there are several other properties within a mile or so (Luxor, Tropicana, MGM Grand, Excalibur and NY NY).
Mandalay Bay has a very friendly staff and one of the largest casinos on the strip. If you have time, stop by and we're sure you'll enjoy it.
The second room tower called Delano (formerly THEhotel) is all suites, and the Four Seasons on the top five floors of Mandalay Bay.
Delano has its own parking garage but shares the casino, pool, restaurants and other amenities with Mandalay Bay and Four Seasons.
We checked into a 550DR (the smallest size) strip view room in December 2008 and absolutely loved it. Mandalay Bay room quality is comparable to the higher
priced Encore at Wynn, where we stayed in June 2009.
