I really liked the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas. To be honest, the rates they offered (USD215 for 2 nights + 1 complimentary night = USD430 for 3 nights) was the least expensive of the hotels on our wish list.
For those of us who are used to the "treat you like king" service in Asia, it's sometimes a big culture shock when you stay at the top hotels in the US. For example, in Asia, you get complimentary slippers, complimentary bath/shower amenities, complimentary tea/coffee galore in your room. If you need more amenities you will get more. In Asia you never have to worry about tipping for every little request. It's a different story in the US, you tip, you tip, you tip. That's why we were prepared to "tip" for every request we had.
The Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas exceeded our expectations. Everytime we had a request, ie., an extra box of tissues, more amenities, etc. they brought it to our room within 5 minutes. Each time we were greeted with a "is there anything else we can do for you?" Coming from Asia and having stayed at 5 other Mandarin Oriental hotels in the world including Hong Kong, Bangkok, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, this was the top one on my list.
I liked how the hotel was located on the Strip and it didn't have a casino. It is quieter but it made a difference because we didn't have to wait in line for check in, check out or a taxi. The touch screen remote control was easy to operate and I liked how the light switches had a small indicator light so you could find the switch when the lights were out.
I liked how they gave complimentary slippers (rare in the US).
I also liked how it was located in the City Center and you could walk to the Miracle Miles shops, the Bellagio, Caesar's Palace, etc. We even walked across the street to Smith & Wollensky's for lunch one day.
The spa was excellent, as was Twist.
I would definitely return to the MO LV.
