"...the Stripís biggest player, MGM Resorts International, just began a $450 million total remake of the 2,700 room resort formerly known as the Monte Carlo into a luxury resort called Park MGM, which will include yet another hotel-within-hotel concept, a 292-room spin-off of very popular New York City lifestyle hotel the NoMad."

All I know about Monte Carlo is that it had one of the worst Strip Buffets.

When they first opened up it was the talk of the town. They actually had a big bank of $1 FPDW and a good cash card. Machines were locked up around the clock, did well and it was kinda fun. They also had a $100 JOB 9/6 $500,000 for the Royal.

Given the stigma around the MB shootings, I wonder if a plan to rebrand Mandalay Bay is next. They successfully turned TheHotel into Delano, and now that MB is infamous, I wonder if, given its location and its very large convention center whether some kind of name change and theme change would work.

That makes a lot of sense. Do some upgrades, re-brand.

I know I'm out of the loop so to speak, but what is the artistic value in those tree roots on the ceiling?

Yeah, I don't get that either.

This kind of looks like they are going for a Jumanji theme.

If I walked in, saw that and heard jungle drums beating I'd be heading for Bellagio.

I received an MLife offer to stay at Park MGM.

Any updates on how things are going at this newly rebranded casino?

What do you want to know?

Rooms are basically all renovated at this point. The front of the casino is a huge mess, under complete construction. You can only enter and exit from the sides. Pools are open now; no more lazy river or wave pool. Just your standard 3.5 foot puddles now. Spa is still under construction.
