MGM Grand completes $160M remodel

MGM Grand in Las Vegas announced the completion of its $160-million room and suite remodel in the hotel's main tower, a move said to mark a major milestone in the resort's "Grand Renovation."

The remodel, which began in October 2011, includes 3,570 Grand King and Queen guestrooms and 642 suites of varying types including the Skyline Terrace and Skyline Marquee Suites.

Created by the team at MGM Resorts International Design, the remodeled Grand King and Grand Queen guestrooms showcase a combination of interior finishes and accents, creating a modern sensibility with an inviting ambiance. For guests seeking additional space for entertaining and relaxing, a variety of newly redesigned one and two-bedroom suites are available, several of which feature outdoor terraces with views of the Las Vegas Strip.

For sustainability, the newly remodeled rooms and suites incorporate environmentally responsible elements including LED lighting; improved thermostats and solar shades to better manage temperature and guest comfort; upgraded faucets and showers; and bath amenities that are 100 percent biodegradable.


MGM Grand also recently announced the Stay Well collection, featuring 42 rooms and suites designed for guests looking to take their wellness lifestyle "on the road" when traveling. Each room will include more than a dozen features designed to enhance and improve the hotel experience from wake-up light therapy that reverses jetlag, to shower water infused with Vitamin C to promote healthy hair and skin. The rooms are available for reservation now and will be ready for guests in late October.

MGM Grand's evolution continues into 2013 with the opening of Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub, an upscale dining experience combined with multiple nightlife components from Angel Management Group. It will be located where the iconic Studio 54 stood for 14 years. Hakkasan is scheduled to open spring 2013.
