- What's Included
Our second stay.Pros: Large rooms - recently updated. Comfy beds. Floor to ceiling windows. Lots of closet and storage .Extremely professional and friendly staff. Conveniently located elevators. Casino is spacious and airy feeling - compared to most others which always feel cramped, noisy, smelly. Nice selection of dining and shopping right in the hotel.. Dining was a tad pricey but certainly not out line with the other resorts on the strip. We always had excellent food and service. Cocktail service at tables and machines very good.Cons: None for us but some may find the MD to be too laid back and too far from the center of the action. It is pretty much the southernmost big casino on the strip. There are two trams - one express to Excalibur. Then you can walk to NYNY, and the action pretty much starts there. The free cardio room is basic and often crowded. but ok - and did I say free? You can pay to use the gym and its worth the fee - in my opinion, if you want to make full use of the excellent facility and spa.
Spent five nights at this hotel during early December 2017 with adult daughter and friend. Rates were reasonable, service was good, security was better than my daughter's prior trip in June and an overall good experience. Making plans to go back this fall and haven't made a decision where to stay at this point.We had rooms on floors 20 and 21 overlooking the festival grounds. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The hotel is Uber friendly. The tram to Luxor and Excalibur was great. There are so many places to eat but breakfast at the Mandalay Bay and Luxor buffets (go before 9 or they get busy), House of Blues and the food court between the two were where we had many meals. Resort Fee and Deposit - My only complaint is the "resort fee" that they add for each night. They literally put a $500 hold on my credit card ($100 per night) and deducted a $35 + tax per night for the "resort fee" when they refunded the deposit. I do have an issue with this since 1 - that was $500 we were planning to spend while there, 2 - it was too cold to be using the pool or other amenities the fee was supposed to be covering, and 3 - why don't they just add that fee to the price of the room when you make reservations? I frequently travel to the Caribbean, Florida, including the Gulf Coast and Keys, and all along the east coast and this doesn't seem to be the common practice among all hotels, although most of the ones in Vegas do this. We just avoided the casino since we didn't have that extra money and brought some home. Actually it may have been a blessing. Just be prepared and allow for this added expense when you go.
The Mandalay Bay is one of the older, but still popular and classy hotels in Las Vegas. It doesn't have a special theme like other places in town, which doesn't have to be a bad thing.Rooms are of a decent size with comfortable beds, but age is catching up with the place. Especially the technical equipment of the rooms is not up to standard, though by no means bad.Otherwise is one huge casino hotel, with all the advantages and disadvantages associated with places like that. Good selection of decent restaurants, some of which are quite popular. Service that is ok for a place of that size.When staying in Las Vegas and looking for a hotel of good standard and with decent rooms, the Mandalay Bay is not a bad choice.
I stayed in two different rooms this month, on 8th and 15th floor, both with 2 queen beds. Everything was very clean and tidy. The beds and pillows are comfortable and I slept very well. I would definitely stay there again as I had a very relaxing time. There are enough outlets to charge all our things as well as an HDMI plug to plug things into the TV.On the 8th floor, I had floor to ceiling windows with a nice view of the Delano and the mountains. On the 15th floor, the windows were smaller but still big. The big plus is the bathroom which is huge, well lit, has 2 sinks, a bath, a shower, a separate toilet and an enormous mirror. The shower gel and hair products are bland and cheap though, so bring your own.The rooms are generally very quiet. I couldn't hear a thing from my room on the 15th floor, but the room on the 8th floor was communicating with the neighboring room and I could hear through the door everything they were doing. I was lucky because they left the room early and were quiet when they came back. I would ask at check in not to have a communicating room.The hotel itself has amazing food options: RM seafood for brunch, Citizens for breakfast, Kumi for dinner were great.The mobile check in and check out services are very convenient. There's also a Fedex/post desk which sells stamps, an Avis car rental desk with a very efficient and friendly clerk, a bell desk which can keep your luggage for you after you check out and a designated Uber pick up/drop off area.I'm not interested in casinos and in the Mandalay Bay the casino floor -that you can't avoid since you have to cross it to go from the rooms to the food area or basically to anywhere else- is quiet and spacious, so it didn't bother me. It's a very big hotel and it takes a while to walk from one end to the other. You can take the monorail for free to go to the Luxor or the Excalibur for more options (but food is better in Mandalay Bay).Don't forget to keep your key with you as you have to show it to security in order to access the elevator.The one thing I didn't like is the smell. Each one of these casino resorts has its own perfume that they pump into the aircon and that must be strong enough to cover the cigarette/cigar smoke on the casino level. In the Delano, the perfume is luxurious and nice. In the Mandalay Bay, it is extremely cheap, fake and strong and made me nauseous.
Wi-Fi signal was fine on Friday January 12, 2018.In the same room, the Wi-Fi signal was almost nonexistent the next day, Saturday between the hours of 4:00 pm and almost midnight.I called guest services which routed me to Internet services. I think they are located outside the hotel. The lady was nice but basically gave me a speech about how she could not do anything about it. Expected as such. It wasn't her fault. Nothing wrong with my Mac computer. I did the requisite rebooting and reconnecting.It is simply that they do not have the bandwidth required to accommodate all the guests. They do not have a roll out yet for paid higher bandwidth services.Suffice it to say that trying to use Internet services here at this hotel on a Saturday was useless. Regardless if there was a conference or not.They should be able to fix this kind of problem. What's the point of using the Internet here? Useless.
