Park MGM Review
Monte Carlo’s billion-dollar makeover has opened as Park MGM. Though not unrecognizable, its new look has taken twenty years off its lobby and casino. Every one of its 2,600 rooms has been remodeled. The newly branded hotel takes its name from MGM’s new corridor sandwiched between it and the New York New York. This new district functions as a gateway to its arenas and as an urban park, complete with live music, art walks, and pubs. This location is the hotel’s best feature. It’s centrally located. It’s across the street from one of Vegas’ hottest clubs. It’s next door to T-Mobile Arena. It shares land with The Park Theater. Each of these places hosts the latest in Vegas’ hottest entertainment—from Calvin Harris to professional sports to Lady Gaga.
Las Vegas Travel Guides
Every one of Park MGM’s 2,600 rooms has been remodeled. Each has the latest in twenty-first-century style and amenities like media outlets and LED TVs. Each features walls with virtual collages of original artwork and custom furniture so that no two rooms are the same. Their designer's intent was to make guests feel right at home while Vegas awaits an elevator ride away.
The Park King’s inviting 406-foot floor plan allows for room to gather. A single king-sized bed with luxury linens is tucked into a cozy alcove that faces the window overlooking Vegas. Fresh bathrooms offer a spacious walk-in shower and bright, modern fixtures.
The Park Queen is the same size and motif as the King except with two queen beds. Also like the King, its state-of-the-art bathroom feels roomy and bright—perfect for a group of revelers to get ready for a night out.
The new Park MGM pool area maximize lounging and minimizes the chance you drown after a few too many Mai Tais. Split into three areas, each with its own shallow, rectangular pool, there are plenty of sea-foam green chaises to go around. Some guests have been disappointed the planned lazy river never came to fruition. As Vegas continues to shed its kitschy, adult theme park image, features like water slides and pirate coves may continue to be replaced by cabanas, DJ stands, and poolside bars, underscoring Las Vegas’ twenty-first-century theme: paying to party in luxury.
Like many 90s hotels, Monte Carlo’s fitness center was tucked away on the ground floor where guests were never meant to find it. But as America has become much more health and fitness conscious, so have Las Vegas’ newest resorts. Park MGM is no exception and plans to place their center on one of the hotel floors.
The casino floor and other amenities are still under construction. That said, we expect Park MGM’s appeal to be its location next to MGM’s newest arenas. Sports enthusiasts will be able to watch a Golden Knights hockey game at T-Mobile Arena without needing a taxi or Uber. Music lovers will be able to catch one of Lady Gaga’s shows at The Park Theater without ever leaving the property.
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.
By the end of 2018, MGM expects to open Eataly, an expansive Italian marketplace. The Las Vegas location will be the company’s sixth in the United States. Like the others, it should sell authentic Italian pasta, tomatoes, wines, and hundreds of other ingredients as well as host cooking classes and sell actual food at cafes.
In the meantime, Park MGM is next door to the New York New York, home to several restaurants and bars, including Nine Fine Irishmen. Or for a more outdoorsy experience, visit The Park. We’re fond of Beerhaus, which serves great sausages, sandwiches, and craft brews.
