Walking into the moody foyer of the Delano Las Vegas, one thing is immediately noticeable: the absence of slots.
This is one of the few hotels on the Vegas strip that doesn’t have a casino inside of it, making it something of an oasis in a city of sensory overload. A quiet, sultry lobby sets the mood for a truly pleasant stay. After freshening up in one of the hotel’s 725-square-foot King Suites—complete with living room, plush king bed, and glorious marble bath—consider grabbing a bite at the onsite Della’s Kitchen. Open for breakfast and lunch, this farmhouse-chic restaurant serves delicious comfort food.
To beat the desert heat there is the Delano Beach Club, a private pool for hotel guests. Before dinner, perhaps at the Mandarin Oriental, a cocktail at the Delano’s Franklin Lounge wouldn’t be a bad choice—nor would a massage at Caesar’s Palace, though.
Located at the end of the strip, the hotel is just a short tram ride (caught at the neighbouring Luxor hotel) away from the hustle and bustle. It’s the best of both worlds, as they say.
