Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Review

Standout Features

Location

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is located right in the heart of the Strip, between Aria and MGM Grand. I find it pretty easy to get around town from this home base — you can walk to some iconic properties or catch a cab or an Uber/Lyft right outside the lobby. If you’ve visited Vegas before, you know it is rare to be able to get a rideshare pickup from the lobby of a resort!

No Casino 

My favorite thing about this property is that it is one of the few resorts on the Strip that doesn’t have a casino. The lobby has recently been renovated, and it’s calm, peaceful, luxurious, and pretty quiet. It’s such a great experience to check in here or wait for your rideshare or cab to arrive without loud gaming machines going off around you.

If you want to hit a casino floor, you can quickly walk to Aria or MGM Grand on either side of the property. However, this is a beautiful spot to book if you don’t gamble or want relaxed evenings at your hotel.

Booking Details

Make sure to link your Hilton rewards program number to your stay. Hilton has a fantastic rewards program, Hilton Honors, and you can earn points on your stay by signing up. You can link your Hilton Honors account to maximize deals even if you book via a third party.

Rooms And Suites

Standard Rooms

For our stay, we opted for a 1 King Bed with a City View and thought it very spacious and luxurious — so much so that we’ve booked this room type multiple times. We got a great view of the Strip right outside our window (as seen above), but surprisingly, we found the room pretty quiet despite being in the heart of the action.

The beds were incredibly comfortable, and the standard rooms all come with a large soaking tub in the bathroom to relax in and a valet closet for touchless delivery of room service and other requested items from housekeeping. 

Suites & Villa

If you want to indulge a little, a suite or a villa could be a fantastic option. While I have not stayed in these rooms, knowing the service and generous size of the standard rooms at the property, I can confidently recommend one of these more spacious accommodation options.

Dining

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas is currently renovating its 23rd floor, home to the Tea Lounge and Hotel Bar, and renovations should be completed sometime in 2024. I found that the dining options during this renovation are limited. However, given the resort’s location on the Strip, you can easily visit a neighboring property for more dining options.

Zen Kitchen

Currently, the hotel has one full-service restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — Zen Kitchen. They offer seasonal American cuisine, and I love that they provide lighter, healthier options and indulgent entrees and desserts.

This restaurant does close briefly between lunch and dinner, but it’s really easy to find food at neighboring resorts if you’re hungry during that time!

Hotel Bar

The Hotel Bar is my favorite place on the Strip for a nightcap. Located on the 23rd floor of the resort, you can enjoy stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip, elevated cocktails, and light bites. I like visiting the Hotel Bar even if I’m staying at another property on the Strip.

Tea Lounge

Sadly, I have not had the opportunity to try Afternoon Tea at the Waldorf Astoria, but it is on my list to experience on my next Vegas trip. I travel to Vegas mainly in the off-season and during the week, and the Tea Lounge has limited hours during that time. However, you can enjoy a classic English afternoon tea service here on the 23rd floor of the property.

Pool Cafe

This is another property I haven’t been able to try since I mainly visit in the off-season, but this resort does have a Pool Cafe that offers light meals, drinks, gelatos, smoothies, and more.

In-Room Dining

In-room dining is available for breakfast, dinner, and late-night dining.

Amenities And Services

Some of the other amenities and services that the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas offers include:

Spa

While I haven’t experienced the spa onsite, it’s on my list for my next visit. This spa offers many services, including massages, couples experiences, body therapies, facials, nail and hair appointments, and more. You can view the menu of spa services available here.

Pool

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas has a pool on the 8th floor where you can enjoy impressive views of the Strip. I’d highly recommend renting a cabana and enjoying the excellent food options from the Pool Cafe on a beautiful afternoon. 

Fitness Center

If you’re into wellness, this is the resort for you. This property has a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and offers personal training and complimentary fitness classes.

My Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Review & Experience

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas was indeed one of the most stunning hotels on the Strip I’ve stayed at, and the service was top-notch here. The staff was incredibly attentive and kind, and it was a fantastic, timeless luxury experience. 

I will be candid and say that the dining options were slim. However, they are in the midst of renovations, and that isn’t much of a dealbreaker, considering there are other large resorts neighboring this property with many restaurants. I love that this hotel does not have a casino, and it feels like one of the most upscale properties on the Strip.
