The Monte Carlo Casino Resort in Las Vegas is being replaced

Monte carlo las vegas : MGM Resorts International unveiled the most significant of numerous recent renovations to the Las Vegas Strip on Friday.

MGM opened The Park, a new urban sanctuary in the midst of Las Vegas Boulevard, less than two months ago.

The Park is bordered with an inviting array of indoor and outdoor restaurants and cafes, and serves as a pedestrian approach to the new $375 million T-Mobile Arena, the Strip’s largest concert and event venue.

It is modelled after Nevada’s desert nature and is full with sculptures and water elements.

The Park is situated between New York-New York and the former Monte Carlo gambling resort.

While the Monte Carlo had a good price point, a great location, and some unique features, most notably its little-known but excellent boutique hotel within the resort, Hotel 32 (read more here at Forbes), and its early embrace of the city’s current outdoor dining and attraction trend with the Monte Carlo Plaza (read more here), it lacked a cohesive theme or appeal. All of that is going to change.

The $450 million refurbishment will begin this fall and result in Park MGM, a 2,700-room premium resort that will be practically brand new.

It will comprise a 292-room spin-off of the Sydell Group’s successful New York City lifestyle hotel, the NoMad, in addition to the new eponymous luxury hotel.

MGM made a similar move two years ago when it brought Miami’s fashionable Delano to its Mandalay Bay Resort (read a detailed Delano review here).

Almost every major casino resort (Caesars Palace, MGM Grand, Aria, Mirage, Wynn, Mandalay Bay, etc.) now has at least one smaller, cooler, and often more elegant hotel within a hotel.

These are virtually always the best way to go when visiting for savvy and luxury-seeking guests (see a piece on this “hidden” second world of top Vegas hotels here).

The NoMad Las Vegas will provide a self-contained experience, including a dedicated drop-off lobby and swimming pool, as well as its own gaming, eating, and drinking options, including an outpost of Chef Daniel Humm’s award-winning NoMad restaurant, the only restaurant in America in the Top 10 of the (formerly known as) San Pellegrino list of the world’s best restaurants.

The Park MGM hotel will house the first Las Vegas location of the Eataly concept, which combines Italian cafés, to-go counters, and full-service restaurants with high-quality Italian retail grocery products. Eataly is situated in Turin, Italy.

MGM and Sydell created Park MGM to appeal to a younger, well-traveled demographic seeking distinctive experiences and inventive design, appealing to this demographic’s need to be more social, connected, and culturally informed.

The Park MGM resort will retain the Monte Carlo’s European design inspirations, but all public and guest spaces will be redone, and both new hotels will feature completely redesigned guest rooms.

With classically influenced European furnishings and a comprehensive art programme, the design will have a residential atmosphere.

The new resort also makes extensive use of the nearby new outdoor The Park, which provides direct access.

Park MGM and The NoMad Las Vegas, along with the new Park Theater, a 5,300-seat, $100-million entertainment complex set to open later this year, are the final components in MGM Resorts’ massive “neighbourhood” renovation of the central Las Vegas Strip.

CityCenter, a 76-acre mixed-use project including the 4,000-room Aria, 1,500-room Vdara, Forbes 5-Star Mandarin Oriental, the Crystals luxury shopping mall, and much of public art, opened in 2009.

The NoMad Las Vegas and Park MGM are set to launch in late 2018.
