According to e-Architect:
Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas [is] designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) as part of CityCenter, a 67-acre urban resort destination by MGM MIRAGE and Infinity World Development Corp. (a subsidiary of Dubai World) on the world-famous Las Vegas Boulevard…Atop a luminous, multi-use base containing ballroom and retail space, the iconic Mandarin Oriental hotel and residences, one of three non-gaming boutique hotels within the complex, comprises 392 luxurious rooms and 225 branded condominium residences.
At over one million square feet, the project was designed by KPF to exemplify the prestigious standards of the Mandarin Oriental brand. The building’s exterior is immediately striking. Based atop a podium made of zinc, titanium, granite and limestone, it rises vertically into a façade that draws inspiration from traditional Chinese motifs. Vertical panels of aluminum and glass interlock with horizontal frit to create this unique appearance. Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas is oriented such that the building meets the boulevard, becoming a visual gateway to CityCenter, while internalizing the entry experience, providing guests with a sense of seclusion.
The seven luxurious Spa Suites are private healing sanctuaries and especially suited to couples looking to enjoy simultaneous treatment experiences. To allow your body and mind to enjoy the deepest therapeutic experience and to make the most of your time in the spa, the hotel recommends their relaxing programs.
