MGM Resorts International’s famed New York-New York themed hotel on the Las Vegas strip has begun a massive remodelling project for its accommodation.

The property, on the glitzy US city’s Strip, is investing $63 million in upgrading its 1,830 rooms and 155 of its suites.

Vegas and NYC influence

When completed in the summer of 2023, the guestrooms will feature vibrant new designs and upgraded in-room amenities that are intended to appeal to travellers from around the world.

Crafted by hospitality design firm HVS Design in partnership with MGM Resorts International Design Group, the design aesthetic draws inspiration from both Las Vegas and New York City. The remodel features design details that harken to New York City, such as rooms with exposed faux brick walls and accent colours such as ‘Big Apple Red’ and ‘Taxicab Yellow’.

Reflecting a thoughtful use of space, rooms will incorporate modern conveniences such as moveable work surfaces, readily available USB/USB-C power outlets and additional shelving and closet space.

Loft apartment feel

Michael Neubecker, the resort’s president and COO, commented: “To embark on a remodel of our rooms and suites is the next step in keeping the resort fresh and giving guests new reasons to visit. Whether coming for business or pleasure, guests will find our new rooms offer a stylish and modern respite as they enjoy the excitement of Las Vegas.”

Christine Shanahan, principal at HVS Design, said, “As we envisioned our design for this project, we incorporated that New York City vibe and twisted it with bold colours and pops of energy to blend with Las Vegas, stressing functionality as a key factor. Guests will experience the feel of a loft apartment with convenient touchpoints and amenities designed to make them feel right at home.”

More developments

Completion of all guestrooms and Spa, Marquis and Players suites is scheduled for summer 2023 with the first collection of standard and premier rooms available for guest stays in late October 2022. The resort will reveal more upcoming enhancements in the coming months.

MGM International Resorts is also driving development in the Far East, via its joint venture with Diaoyutai State Guesthouse, Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality. At least nine sites are scheduled to open in China, including MGM Shenzhen, MGM Wuhan and Zhuhai Hengqin Huafa MGM.
