LAS VEGAS (September 27, 2012) – MGM Grand, Las Vegas’ ultimate entertainment destination, announced today the completion of its $160 million room and suite remodel in the hotel’s main tower, marking a major milestone in the resort’s “Grand Renovation.”

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

“Our newly redesigned accommodations set the stage for an incredible experience at MGM Grand and the positive response we’ve been receiving from our guests is extraordinary,” said Scott Sibella, president and COO of MGM Grand. “MGM Grand is home to The Strip’s finest entertainment and dining options; these stunning new rooms and suites complete the Las Vegas resort experience.”

Featuring warm, yet vibrant designs and color palettes with contemporary furnishings, the new room and suite designs create comfortable and functional spaces within a sophisticated setting.

Grand Guest Rooms
Created by the talented team at MGM Resorts International Design, the remodeled Grand King and Grand Queen guest rooms showcase a stylish combination of interior finishes and accents, creating a modern sensibility with an inviting ambiance.

Warm earth tones throughout each room set the stage for a relaxing environment, with splashes of vibrant colors carefully integrated into plush fabrics, striking artwork and playful carpet patterns. The Grand King rooms feature a tangerine and bronze palette while the Grand Queen rooms incorporate fuchsia, platinum and charcoal to create an inspired color expression.

Floor-to-ceiling headboard walls, accented by patterned fabric blocks above each bed, are flanked by mirrors on both sides, creating a dramatic visual as soon as guests enter the room.

Providing a streamlined focal point within each room, the dresser features spacious storage as well as a fully stocked mini-bar and media connectivity hub. Located above this centerpiece is a flat-screen HD television, openly displayed and visible throughout the room.

For guests who come to play but also need to work, the new rooms feature a spacious desk with ergonomic seating and task lighting. For those moments of relaxation, either two plush armchairs or a sofa is located adjacent to the window, to welcome in natural light by day and view the bright city lights by night.

New energy-efficient lighting and lamps are carefully positioned throughout creating a residential feel with convenient, functional details including an electrical outlet at each base for easy bedside and tableside recharging.

Suite Redesign
For guests seeking additional space for entertaining and relaxing, a variety of newly redesigned one and two-bedroom suites are available, several of which include expansive terraces with sweeping views of the famed Las Vegas Strip.

While the furnishings are similar in form and function to the Grand guest rooms, the remodeled Tower Spa Suites and Executive Suites feature a distinct color palette with rich hues ranging from a royal plum to mink, taupe and cream.

The Executive One-Bedroom Suite showcases a dynamic palette of red and azure blue to create an element of energy and surprise. As the living and entertainment space expands, so do the amenities. Multiple seating and dining areas, large flat-screen televisions and a spacious master bedroom create a luxurious environment.

The new designs in the one-bedroom City View and Penthouse City View Suites include a variety of warm textures and fabrics, blending 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. Designed with larger groups in mind, many of the Skyline Marquee Suites feature a great room with a billiard table, media/living area and a large table for games or dining, meant to create a lively atmosphere. Each end of the great room leads to a master suite, creating a natural separation between the two relaxation zones and capitalizing on privacy for each.

A unique find in Las Vegas, the two-story Skyline Terrace Suites feature a spacious outdoor balcony, where guests can relax and watch TV from their cozy sectional sofa or host a small gathering, all while overlooking the magnificent lights of Las Vegas. Conveying the sense of a residential penthouse, the newly designed Skyline Terrace Suites feature modern and elegant furnishings, with a decidedly urban flair.

Sustainable Features
In keeping with MGM Grand’s commitment to 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.

STAY WELL Collection
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 highly anticipated opening of Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant and Nightclub, an upscale dining experience combined with multiple nightlife components from Angel Management Group, one of Las Vegas’ preeminent nightclub operators. Located where the iconic Studio 54 stood for 14 years, the venue will deliver an innovative concept evolving beyond Hakkasan’s original restaurant model, incorporating the best of dining and nightlife to create an unimaginable experience that will revolutionize the Las Vegas market. Hakkasan is scheduled to open spring 2013.
