Last Call: THEhotel HE Penthouse

Question: How do you know your hotel needs a design refresh? Answer: When your top of the line Penthouse Suites still have a VCR. Did you know that video technology before VHS was the film projector? A Laser Disc player would be more modern.
With the transformation of THEhotel into Delano in full swing, THEhotel's three Penthouse Suites - named the HE, HP and HL - are headed for the scrap heap of history. Fortunately for us, VT reader pkluvsvegas brought back a batch of photos from a recent stay in one of the HE suites, preserving forevermore THEhotel's grand opening vision of luxury.
The HE suite is a large one - clocking in at 2,060 square feet - and is usually reserved for Noir card holders and celebrities staying in house. Rack rate for the HE suite starts at $1000+/nt and top out at roughly $2.5k.
The layout features a wet bar, gigantic living room, small water closet, spacious bedroom hogged by a TV pedestal/entertainment center in the middle and a master bathroom. All are wrapped in Mandalay Bay's golden hued glass curtain wall, which turns everything inside green during the day.
The living room... looking towards the bedroom. Ah yes. I've partied in this room, FiveHundy booked it for a post-VPP (the precursor to VIMFP) shindiggle.
The living room... looking the opposite way. By the far wall is a dining room table and near that is a bar. I swear that can still hear @dslifton singing Squeeze songs like it was yesterday. I won't mention what Dramman did, mostly because I don't remember exactly what it was other than that it happened.
The bedroom. To the immediated left, a couch; the far wall, the bed; between, the TV tower.
Alas... the VHS. BYO.
The master bathroom. The door at the far end leads to the throne room.
Sinks, towels and stuff.
Alternate view of bathroom from throne room door.
Finally a groovy and very thorough video walkthrough. Very awesome!
Big huge thanks to pkluvsvegas for sharing this!
