Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts announced on May 16 that it will raise its flag on the Las Vegas Strip in August. The luxury hotel brand will take over management of the 392-room Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, part of MGM Resorts International's CityCenter complex.

Waldorf Astoria plans to renovate and improve the property to match its brand style. It will introduce True Waldorf Service with Personal Concierges "to ensure every guest enjoys thoughtful, intuitive and graceful service," the company said in a statement.

The Hilton-owned brand adds that guests "can also expect unforgettable experiences, including innovative dining concepts, spectacular views of The Strip from the hotel's exclusive 23rd floor bar, helicopter rides, spa retreats and more." The hotel is home to Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, which like the spa and hotel itself are all currently rated Forbes five stars. It has more then 12,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including the 7,650-square-foot Oriental Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Las Vegas Strip.

"We are thrilled to announce the addition of a Waldorf Astoria in the western part of the U.S., and in the heart of such a dynamic, internationally beloved city like Las Vegas," said Martin Rinck, global head, Luxury & Lifestyle Group, Hilton.

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas will participate in the Hilton Honors loyalty program.
