In a city that's all about chaos and a constant hustle and bustle, it's hard to imagine a place where one can find some peace and quiet. At the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, however, getting a little R&R in Sin City is easier (and more luxurious) than ever.

Located at the entrance of the CityCenter complex, this LEED Gold certified, non-gaming property offers a haven away from the noise of slot machines and drunken gamblers. Midway up this 47-story building, a welcoming and knowledgeable staff greets you in the 23rd-floor Sky Lobby, along with expansive views through floor-to-ceiling windows. The lobby is just the beginning on this level, as it also houses a trio of different venues to please your inner foodie (or imbiber!). Dine on classic French creations with a modern spin at the hotel's signature restaurant, the aptly named Twist by Pierre Gagnaire; treat yourself to high tea and small bites at the Tea Lounge; or take in cocktails, tapas and yet more unrivaled views at the Mandarin Bar. You can also dine al fresco at the Poolside Café or venture to the third floor for all-day dining at MOzen Bistro, offering an eclectic menu that includes a sushi bar, Indian delicacies and Thai dishes.

On the floors below the lobby, the 392 well-appointed rooms and suites boast walls of windows that display magnificent vistas of the glittering lights of the Strip. At the same time they manage to offer the quiet and feeling of seclusion more often found at a remote resort. The elegant, Adam Tihany-designed accommodations are contemporary with a hint of Asian influences and are equipped with state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious technology, including keyless door locks and automated control panels for lighting, room temperature and entertainment systems. Each large bathroom — with spacious bathtub and shower — comes with a second television and Frette robes. Above the lobby, owners of the 225 apartments and condominiums known as The Residences at Mandarin Oriental enjoy full access to the hotel's services and facilities, including housekeeping, in-room dining, concierge, the fitness center and the spa.

Available also to day guests, the 27,000-square-foot spa, located on the seventh and eighth floors, enhances the feeling of tranquility that is instilled throughout the hotel. Inspired by 1930's Shanghai, it includes seventeen treatment rooms, multiple relaxation and water experiences, Rhassoul treatments for women, a coed hammam and a dedicated yoga studio.

In Las Vegas there's no such thing as "all work and no play," but when you're on the clock, Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas has the business amenities you need — all under one roof. A full-service business center with a private meeting room and administrative and translation services are just the beginning of the executive-friendly amenities. The hotel also offers wired and wireless Internet in all guest rooms and public spaces, more than 12,000 square feet of versatile function space, meeting rooms, a configurable 7,650-square-foot ballroom and state-of-the-art audiovisual systems and lighting technology.

It's no surprise to us that the company's logo is a fan, as they have made fans of us time and again with quality service, luxury accommodations, fine dining, excellent locations and an overall ambience of quiet and seclusion in some of the world's most dynamic destinations. One stay at the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas, and you're sure to become a loyal follower, too.
