MGM Grand finishes room remodel
A $160 million room and suite remodel in the main tower of Las Vegas’ MGM Grand is complete, a milestone in the resort’s overall renovation. The room remodel, which began a year ago, includes 3,570 king and queen guest rooms and 642 one- and two-bedroom suites. The newly remodeled rooms and suites incorporate eco-friendly elements including LED lighting, energy-efficient thermostats and solar shades to better manage temperature, and bath amenities that are completely biodegradable. Forty-two rooms and suites are also part of the resort’s new Stay Well collection, designed for guests looking to take their wellness lifestyle with them on the road. The rooms, which will be available in late October, will include more than a dozen features such as wake-up light therapy that reverses jetlag and shower water infused with Vitamin C. A five-story, 75,000-sq.-ft. restaurant and nightclub, set to be the largest in the city, is still under construction with a slated completion date next spring.
