Poof! One Hotel Into Two Hotels!
It opened June 21, 1996. It was christened the Monte Carlo and still retains that name today. But, not for long. Soon the Monte Carlo will become two hotels with two new names. No more Monte Carlo.
MGM announced a $450 million dollar plan to renovate the Monte Carlo’s rooms in both of the two new hotels. One will be named the NoMad Hotel and the other, a luxury hotel will be named Park MGM.
This new venture will be a partnership between MGM Properties and the Sydell Group out of New York. These new properties will both sport new eating venues too. According to a travelagentcentral.com article:
In addition to fully redesigned and renovated hotel guest rooms, each hotel will have new food and beverage experiences, including the award-winning NoMad restaurant by Chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara and Eataly’s Italian marketplace with cafes, to-go counters and full-service restaurants interspersed with products from sustainable Italian and local producers.
Park MGM will have about ten times the number of rooms as the NoMad Hotel. Park MGM will have 2700 rooms to the 292 of the NoMad. The Park MGM will target a more sophisticated and younger market. The NoMad will taxi on the reputation and ambiance of the original Monte Carlo.
The time table now is to begin the project by the end of 2016 and finish up sometime in 2018. This new hotels will add to the already new look of the south Strip. In recent months we have seen the opening of the T-Mobil Arena and the new Park on the Strip that is located between the Monte Carlo and New York New York.
Well, it’s Las Vegas and it changes all the time. Great new things are coming.
