The Monte Carlo has received a billion-dollar makeover. Unlike some rebrandings, Park MGM is not simply a new logo for a dated, dying resort. Every part of Park MGM—from its 2,600 guest rooms to its restaurants to its casino—is getting a much-needed facelift.
According to the hotel’s designer, nothing is supposed to feel perfect. Parts of it certainly do not. The massive tree-root centerpiece hanging over the lobby seems designed to make guests feel fascinated, yet uneasy. Mirrors covering the pillars similarly make the interior look enormous, even a bit disorienting.
Rooms, on the other hand, are furnished to make guests feel like they are in a new home. No two are exactly alike. Each has its own assortment of modern photographs and paintings. Bathrooms feature the latest in twenty-first-century convenience and style.
The casino floor and other amenities are still under construction. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying dinner at the ground floor’s newest restaurants. Bavette’s serves exceptional dry-aged beef amid a refined atmosphere containing rich, dark woods and chandeliers. Primrose specializes in refreshing French fare and even contains a drawing room evoking mid-century country villas in Provence.
Though Park MGM seems a bit spartan as it opens, by year’s end, guests can expect it to be one of the hottest places on the Strip. Its location right next to MGM’s new arenas will make it popular with concert-goers and sports fanatics. Within months, its Eataly Italian marketplace and dozens of other dining, gambling, and entertainment options will attract Vegas frequenters searching for something new.
