Road to Monument Valley

Strip View of City Center from Room at The Mandarin

On the road to Utah we stayed at the Mandarin Oriental LV Hotel. It was such a nice a place to spend a couple of days before we picked up a rental car for the drive to Amangiri Resort in Canyon Point. The stay at the MO was a great start.
Virgin America First Class
Our trip to the fantastic Navajo Tribal Park in Utah began with a flight to Vegas via Virgin America Airlines. Appreciated being in First Class, comfort all the way.
At the MO we had a strip-view room on the 38th floor. Incredible view. Thoroughly impressed by the attention to detail in the room and the hotel as a whole. The automation in the room (temperature, lighting, sound, television, blinds, etc.) was great .
With not having a casino at the MO, they are able to place a great emphasis on room and service quality. The front reception was very attentive to any needs we had and was extremely helpful. Upon check-in, we visited the Pool Cafe and had some excellent drinks and light snacks before dinner at the MOzen Bistro. Had a nice evening.
All Food and Drink was Included with The Cabana
The next day we rented a Cabaña by the pool from 9am to 4:00 and we received great care and service. Fantastic place to relax.
Music at the Mandarin Bar
After a nice day at the pool, we headed to the famous Mandarin Bar on the 23rd floor. Considered #1 in Vegas for drinks and style. The drinks and view were great, but even better was seeing an old high school friend playing guitar in the house band. They played tight professional music and it was even the drummer’s birthday. Had a bit of time to reminisce about the old neighborhood with John and it was great seeing how happy he was playing music. They’re a must see and play Sundays 5- 8 in the evening. Can’t wait to get back.
View from the Bar
The next morning we had a delicious MO breakfast at MOzen, got the rental car and off we went to The Amangiri in Canyon Point, UT.
Mandarin Oriental LV is highly recommended!
