Delano Las Vegas will be managed by MGM Resorts under a long-term licensing agreement with Morgans Hotel Group. This will be the brand's second outpost in the United States, following The Delano South Beach.
In addition, Morgans Hotel Group plans to introduce several new food and beverage concepts at Mandalay Bay to be managed by The Light Group. Venues will include a casual American bistro by Chef Brian Massie, a Japanese dining destination by celebrity chef Akira Back, and a new vision for Red Square. All venues are scheduled to open in 2013.
In an announcement, Michael Gross, Morgans Hotel Group CEO said "MGM Resorts International is the market leader in Las Vegas and we could think of no better partner to operate Delano. We've had our eye on Las Vegas for many years, and have finally found the right location and opportunity. Delano as a brand evokes luxury with an unexpected touch of individuality. This enables our guests to easily discern between mere travel and the unparalleled experience at Delano. We can see no better market and partner to help us launch our largest property to date."
Each of the property's 1,100 all-suite accommodations will be redesigned in keeping with the Delano personality. Rounding out the Las Vegas experience will be the transformation of the destination's public spaces including bars, lounges, spa, and restaurants, with additional details to be released in the coming months.
