Park Towers or Mandarin - Which to Pick?
published on 2015-12-16
Park Towers and Mandarin Oriental are two of the most luxurious condo buildings in Las Vegas, if not the entire US. Their spectacular homes represent the height of sophistication, offering views, amenities and a level of exclusivity rivaling the most luxurious residences in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago.
So which should you choose? Here’s our detailed breakdown of these spectacular communities, so you can decide which is best for you:
Best Location: Mandarin Oriental
The Mandarin is right on the strip in the heart of City Center. This cutting edge, mixed-use environment incorporates luxury residences with high-end retail and world-class dining and entertainment options. Residents of the Mandarin can walk next door to Crystals Mall and the Cosmopolitan.
Best Price-Per-Square-Foot: Park Towers
One of the more common ways to compare pricing is use the Price Per Square Foot (PPSQFT). There are several listings in Park Towers on the middle floors offered for the mid $500's per square foot. At Mandarin Oriental, prices start at the mid $600's per square foot on the low end and quickly run to over $1000 per square foot.
One of our current listings (mls #1587615 for $969,000) at the Park Towers currently listed at $456 per square foot. On the third floor, this spacious condo has 2126 square feet of space and 3 bedrooms.
Best Amenities: Mandarin
Amenities are one of the special things for which the Mandarin is famous. In addition to the restaurants, bars, tea lounge, gym, elevated pool and world-famous spa in the Mandarin hotel, residents also enjoy access to an amazing selection of private amenities. A full-service hospitality team offers residents 24-7 lifestyle services including concierge, valet, security, housekeeping and maintenance. Residents can order in-home dining services 24 hours a day. The resident’s lounge offers free WiFi, billiards, beverage service, and a board room with state-of-the-art technology. Residents also enjoy expanded steam room hours and one complimentary reservation for a pool cabana each year.
Best Accessibility: Park Towers
Thanks to its location one block east of the Strip, Park Towers offers incredible ease of access. And with only 84 exclusive residences to serve, the community’s 24-hour valet service is always available to assist.
Best Views: Tie
The Mandarin overlooks the Strip, offering intoxicating views of the world-famous city lights. Park Towers is secluded away from competing high-rises and surrounded by lush gardens, so every unit offers unobstructed, commanding views of the mountains, the valley and the Strip.
Best Penthouses: Mandarin
With spectacular custom floor plans extending to almost 4,000 square feet, Mandarin’s penthouse collection offers a unique level of luxury that features high quality designer finishes, state-of-the-art technology, Bosch and Thermador kitchen appliances, custom cabinetry, and stunning views of the Strip.
Best Outdoor Living: Park Towers
Each condo in Park Towers features a private, grand outdoor terrace, large enough for al fresco dining and entertaining. The community’s lush grounds rival the most luxurious resort, with acres of green space, walking trails, tennis courts, gardens, plus a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sun deck and a BBQ area.
Best Pampering: Tie
The Mandarin has those round-the-clock in-room dining services, but Park Towers has those lush, private grounds. The Mandarin’s elevated pool is famously sensual, while Park Towers’ underground wine cellar with personal wine lockers are sublime. Both properties offer world-class hospitality and care, as well as some of the most splendid health, fitness and spa services in town.
So Who Wins?
There’s no question the Mandarin offers an unparalleled level of chic sophistication on the Strip. And Park Towers, with only 84 residences, has a lower price per square foot, nice touches like the wine lockers and great outdoor space. We'll take the high road here and let you figure out which wins for you. That's all that matters after all.
