Concierge.com's insider take:
THEhotel, located in a separate tower at the Mandalay Bay, was the first hotel expansion in Vegas that didn't provide a single thematic link to its mother ship when it opened in 2004. Cut from a totally different cloth, it was, in fact, the first Strip property without any theme at all. Well, if you don't consider modern design a theme—this place attracts the type who feels clean lines are as important as clean sheets. Every room is designed in a sexy palette that mixes dark chocolate, purple, and gray: very chic and shadowy. Book one of the 750-square-foot one-bedroom suites, and you'll be able to keep your luggage mess out of sight when entertaining friends in the living room (there are about 1,117 suites in all). Saying that you are staying at THEhotel earns a certain respect from other tourists and even locals. Still, when telling friends to meet you here, be prepared for their likely question: "Which hotel?"
