MGM Resorts International announced Tuesday it is adding 77,000 square feet of meeting space as part of its revamp of Monte Carlo. The news comes shortly after announcing a similar project: the expansion of the convention center at the MGM Grand.
MGM Resorts has said the $450 million reboot of the Monte Carlo property — scheduled to be completed next year — will completely change the resort, dividing it into two distinct hotels in one building: Park MGM and NoMad.
Park MGM will be a luxury hotel tied thematically to MGM’s outdoor space The Park, which sits just to the south of the resort. In turn, the new convention center — which can host up to 5,000 — will be tied into the Park MGM, the Park Theater, restaurants and the property’s pool.
According to the announcement, design of the space is aimed at small groups and includes an executive meeting center that can be divided into 10 separate rooms for classroom training, seminars and workshops.
In addition, the new convention space will have the Stay Well features that the company is adding to its convention expansion at the MGM Grand. Construction of that $130 million, 250,000-square-foot project began in June.
The Stay Well program, developed by a company called Delos with the support of author and public speaker Deepak Chopra, includes features such as:
• Air purification
• Calming design elements
• Lighting that mimics natural light
• Access to the Cleveland Clinic website mobile app
• Optional healthy menus
• Exclusive access to Chopra’s mobile app
While the Park MGM hotel is expected to open next year, company officials said most of the convention space will be open this fall.
