This Strip Hotel & Casino Likely To Get A New Name

shutterstock_290783573All Vegas lovers and history buffs know that hotels come and go in Las Vegas. They appear as the new kid on the block and cause all kinds of excitment. Later, they get imploded.

These older hotels get refurbished and renamed, such as in the case of the Imperial Palace. It was upgraded and renamed the Quad and then changed to its current name Linq. In one case, a hotel, the Aladdin, was imploded and rebuilt under the same name. This didn’t last long though. Today, the property is Planet Hollywood.

Another possible upgrade and renaming is making the blogs and gossip rounds. The Monte Carlo that has been around since June 21, 1996, may be the next hotel to undergo a facelift and name change.

There doesn’t seem to be a definitive answer as to what the new name will be. Various speculations have been offered, but no statement from MGM that we can find to settle the issue.

MGM CEO ┬áJim Murren, who had said before that a name change was not in their thinking, but now indicates it will happen. When this will happen is the question? With the new Vegas Arena’s opening just months away, we would suspect an answer would come soon. Some reports said it was to happen before the end of the year. Well, that leaves us seven days. Maybe?

One speculation on the name was was to name it Park Avenue Hotel & Casino. However, at this point, it’s anyone’s guess.
