Always brimming with excitement, the gaming floor at Mandalay Bay has plenty of luck to go around. There are more than 2,000 video poker and slot machines on the floor, just steps away from table games and the high-limit lounge. A smoke-free poker room hosts a variety of different games, and the sports book has 300 seats and plenty of large-screen TVs for tracking the action. There's also a casino at the Mandalay Bay Beach, where you can play in your bare feet and swimwear if you'd like.
The rooms at Mandalay Bay are spread throughout two towers. The main tower features 3,200-plus guestrooms including more than 400 suites, all well appointed and stylish. The Four Season occupies several of the top floors, home to 424 upscale rooms and suites, all recently remodeled. Guests of the Four Seasons have special access to the Four Seasons' swimming pool, spa, and separate entrance. The second hotel tower has 1,117 suites in the style of a much smaller boutique hotel. Some of the suites even allow dogs, and a canine-friendly green trail encircles the tower.
With chef-inspired menus and a variety of choices, Mandalay Bay offers an array of tasty choices. For some good views to go along with the great view, be sure to book a meal at the House of Blues Foundation Room. The top-floor restaurants also hosts some the Mandalay Bay nightlife and has a stylish lounge. Casual eats are also available at throughout the resort and its beach area, everything from a Cantonese noodle shop to a coffee bar and a crepe bistro.
After dark, the options for fun at the resort range from laid-back lounges to colorful dance floors and live music play well into the wee hours of the morning. Music fans and bands alike love the House of Blues, an 1,800-seat venue with some amazing acoustics. Legendary tattoo artist Mario Barth teamed up with the House of Blues for Starlight Tattoo, the first time a music venue has partnered with ink artists. Mandalay Bay also is home to an ice bar, which is exactly what you would think—an icy wonderland where mittens and parkas are the latest style. There's also a lounge and bar where the color and music are always changing, complete with touch tables that let you communicate with the DJs as the party keeps going.
Mandalay Bay's pool complex stretches for 11 acres, with plenty of room for the lazy river, wave pool, and four swimming pools. Private cabanas and lounge chairs provide places to relax. The beach's casino complex features a bar and grill along with air-conditioned gaming. Adults-only Las Vegas beach parties take place at the upscale Moorea Beach Club.
Besides the shows at the House of Blues, the resorts hosts big-name concerts and sporting events at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. In the summertime, the outdoor concert series also brings the hottest artists to Mandalay Bay—and this summertime concert series has become a summertime tradition in Las Vegas. If you want to see a stage show, you'll want to get tickets for Michael Jackson ONE, an amazing Cirque du Soleil inspired by the music of the King of Pop.
