MANDARIN ORIENTAL — That changeover from the Mandarin Oriental brand to the Waldorf-Astoria comes with a $50 million renovation this summer, and The Los Angeles Times reports those changes will come “gradually” so guests are not disturbed. MGM Resorts announced the sale to an undisclosed buyer back in April, and then Hilton, which owns Waldorf-Astoria, claimed ownership of the resort. Of note, the Times asked about the fate of Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, the French chef’s only restaurant in the United States, and the Tea Lounge on the 23rd floor. “A publicist for Waldorf-Astoria said only that those public spaces would be used for ‘innovative dining concepts.’” Mandarin Oriental opened on the Strip in November 2009 as a part of CityCenter.
