There is another new hotel opening right around the corner and many people are excited to see what the property will offer.

The Delano Las Vegas will make its debut on Sept. 2. The style of the non-smoking, non-gaming, all-suite hotel is being described as a fusion of the chic style of the iconic South Beach brand and the vibrant energy of the Las Vegas Strip.

The hotel gave future customers a sneak peek in April. It was revealed at that time that the 1,100-suite hotel will feature a sleek new lobby and updated suites. Other features of the hotel include dynamic social spaces such as Franklin, which is being described as an eclectic lounge.

Guests at the hotel arriving at the front entrance will walk between a 126,000-pound boulder from the Mojave Desert that has been divided in half. Delano's design team reportedly scoured the desert until they found the perfect boulder based on its size and color. The boulder was located near Jean, Nevada.

The suites at Delano will feature a clean color palette of whites and neutrals and will incorporate Delano's iconic window sheers, crisp white lines and over-sized tufted headboards. Photography of seductive underwater scenes will adorn the walls and floor-to-ceiling windows will provide sweeping views of the Las Vegas skyline. The one-bedroom suite is 725 feet and boasts a private bedroom, 46-inch flat-screen television, a wet bar, desk and a powder room.

Restaurants at Delano include Della's Kitchen, which is described as a meeting between a historic farmhouse and an urban eatery. The menu will be centered around local and regional ingredients, including herbs from Delano's own greenhouse. The restaurant will offer also feature a fresh juice program.

3940 Coffee + Tea will offer a comfortable retreat with modern furniture. It will serve artisanal teas, freshly-squeezed juices, gourmet coffees and select menu items.

miX at Delano Las Vegas is located on the 64th floor of the hotel. The restaurant will be transformed into the Rivea. That restaurant will be helmed by Chef Alain Ducasse and offers contemporary and classic French and America dishes with global accents.

Franklin's will offer an ever-evolving atmosphere that appeals to all senses, according to a press release for the venue. The lounge incorporates gold lighting, hues of deep blue and bronze, and statement navy sheers that drape from ceiling to floor and shimmer with sparkling lights reminiscent of fireflies at dusk. In addition to offering a cocktail- centric drink menu and unique backbar offerings, the lounge will host the hottest up-and-coming DJs. The miX Lounge will feature a variety of cocktails, an innovative bar menu and savvy DJs.

The Bathhouse Spa's menu will use locally-sourced ingredients including cacti and desert wildflowers, as well as immune boosting milk and honey treatments with edible raw desert bee pollen.

Last but not least, guests will be able to take advantage of the hotel's private pool and the neighboring Mandalay Bay beach, which has 2,700 tons of real sand, a 1.6 million gallon wave pool, 100 rentable cabanas, day beds, bungalows and personalized villas.

Delano Las Vegas was formerly known as THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. The re-branding of the hotel, a partnership between MGM Resorts and Morgans Hotel Group, was announced in 2012.
