There’s always a lot happening in Vegas but this week we had announcements that there will be two new hotels to stay at soon and one new casino to play in. The Hotel at Mandalay Bay is undergoing a transformation to be more of a boutique hotel within the Mandalay Bay complex. Delano Las Vegas will officially open in early 2014 but you may be able to squeeze in towards the end of the year. You can sign up for alerts on their website. If you’re not familiar with Delano you can get an idea from their South Beach hotel.
Mandalay Bay has undergone a lot of renovations in the past year. The Four Seasons has all new rooms and many of the restaurants have been refreshed. This weekend their new nightclub called Light opens along with its daytime companion Daylight. Light has entertainment and inspiration from Cirque. Pretty cool.
Announcements, openings and finding new things to do in and out of house are always part of the week for anyone that lives in Las Vegas. With the temperatures reaching 100 degrees for the first time this year there was a good excuse to find some quality time inside. While there is a lot happening this summer inside and outside the casinos there’s a lot happening to satiate Vegas cravings from home.
- Fill your craving for Las Vegas with “Model Employee” which started airing on VH1 last week. The show takes models and puts them to work at Mandalay Bay. The show may not be anything new but any day Vegas is on TV is a good day. Another way to fill your cravings for Vegas tales is former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman’s new memoir. The book looks at his life from Mob lawyer to mayor. Besides filling Vegas desires it will be a good way to kill some time in the air conditioning when the temps get into the 120’s this summer.
Las Vegas is great because there’s always something happening. There may be a new show opening tonight and there may be an announcement of a new show opening in two years and everything in between. We hope to keep you up to date on all of the big news happening in Vegas that may effect your trip this weekend or your next trip in a year. Every week we’ll compile notes of what’s happening in Vegas that you should know. Here are this weeks news highlights in Vegas.
- Hotel rooms in Las Vegas are renovated about every 5 to 6 years and Rio just started to update almost 400 of their suites. You can see a rendering of the new Samba Suites at the POV Blog.
