Mandarin Oriental Las VegasThis property is now the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas.
With a level of service that the huge hotels cannot come close to, the 392-room Mandarin Oriental is one of the rare, non-casino luxury hotels that provide an almost residence-like respite within steps of all that makes Las Vegas Las Vegas. Located midway along the Strip at CityCenter—an address it shares with the megaresort Aria and the Shops at Crystals—it is Asian-influenced in its decor, its service, and its Zen-like serenity. Business guests favor it, especially those who can afford the China-size suites, but so do deep-pocketed families. The best check-in-with-a-view in all of Las Vegas happens at the 23rd-story Sky Lobby, whose Las Vegas Strip panoramas can be enjoyed just off the lobby, in the Mandarin Bar or further down the floor, at Twist restaurant. Spectacular Strip and city views are a theme throughout the hotel; a whirlpool with a view, anyone?

High Tea at Mandarin Oriental
Mandarin Oriental is a gorgeous property from top to bottom -- literally. Pulling up to the posh entrance hints at its beauty, and the over-the-top indulgent spa on the eighth floor and bar on the 23rd are stand-outs. At the bar, floor-to-ceiling windows show off breathtaking views of the Strip. And in the adjacent lobby, my favorite amenity is served -- high tea, served daily 2-5 pm. From the scones and devonshire cream to darling sandwiches and tasty desserts, tea at Mandarin is special, and a welcome pause from the craziness of the Strip. And of course, there are the teas -- ask your server about the one in the clear teapot that blooms like a flower.

Simply the Best
If you go to Vegas and want to enjoy a drink or two before or after dinner with an amazing view, Mandarin's bar is absolutely the place! The drink menu features a lemongrass mojito, a lychee smash, as well as a cucumber & cilantro margarita—among many others.
