MGM Grand unveils new guest room and suite designs

 MGM Grand has revealed designs for its new rooms and suites.

Now underway, the $160 million remodel includes all 3,570 guest rooms and 642 suites in the hotel’s main tower. The redesign is expected to conclude by September 2012.

Created by the team at MGM Resorts International Design, the remodeled Grand King and Grand Queen guestrooms are said to “showcase a stylish combination of interior finishes and accents, creating a modern sensibility with an inviting ambiance.” With the renovations, the Grand King rooms will end up featuring a tangerine and bronze palette, while the Grand Queen rooms incorporate fuchsia, platinum and charcoal. Upon completion of the refurbishments, the rooms will feature floor-to-ceiling headboard walls, accented by patterned fabric blocks above each bed, and flanked by mirrors on both sides; dressers for storage; a mini-bar; and a media connectivity hub, along with a flat-screen HDTV. Still other features include a desk with ergonomic seating and task lighting, and armchairs or a sofa placed adjacent to the window.

A variety of one and two-bedroom suites will be redesigned, several of which include terraces with views of the Las Vegas Strip.

The remodeled Tower Spa Suites and Executive Suites feature a color palette with rich hues ranging from a royal plum to mink, taupe and cream.


The Executive One-Bedroom Suite showcases a palette of red and azure blue. Among the amenities are multiple seating and dining areas, flat-screen TVs, and a master bedroom. Meanwhile, the new designs in the one-bedroom City View and Penthouse City View Suites blend a combination of coffee brown, amber, cornflower blue and metallic neutral colors.

The two-bedroom Skyline Marquee Suite is an end unit with 180-degree panoramic views of The Strip. It also features a room with a billiard table, media/living area, and a table for games or dining. In addition to these, the two-story Skyline Terrace Suites also feature an outdoor balcony.

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% biodegradable.

The remodel began in October 2011.

MGM is the latest in a string of resorts to undertake a major rehabilitation. Among others, Steve Wynn spent $99 million to upgrade the Wynn Las Vegas’ 2,700 hotel rooms and suites, the Stratosphere embarked on a $20 million hotel and casino renovation, and the Bellagio underwent a $70 million face-lift.
