Best Hotel Renovation: The Mandalay Bay

The Mandalay Bay has come a long way baby. In order to keep up with the insane amount of new hotel construction and renovation going on in Las Vegas as well as keep up with the super sweet rooms of THEhotel, Mandalay Bay wisely redid all their guestrooms this past year.

Rooms range in size from 550 to 1,500 square feet with floor-to-ceiling windows, separate his-and-her closets, spacious multi-jet spa tubs, separate glass-enclosed showers, twin vanities, fully stocked minibars and two flat-screen televisions - a 42-inch plasma in the bedroom and a 15-inch LCD in each bathroom.

Other state-of-the-art amenities include wireless high-speed Internet access, cordless phones with dual lines and iHome clock radios for iPods.

Aside from the rooms looking more like 2007 than 1985, the rest of the hotel has kicked it up a notch. We stayed there in April and had a far better experience than when we stayed there in 2005 which was an infamous hotel stay. The elevators were faster, the check-in was hassle-free, and the front desk bought us two tubes of toothpaste when we told them we had forgotten ours. Even better, we paid $169 a night (before taxes) which in Vegas these days is practically a deal.

Oh, come'on, you didn't love the old maroon-and-pink floral bedspreads? :) Seriously, we stayed recently and I especially liked the Ipod player and little flat screen TV in the bathroom. Much improved
