Monte Carlo conversion to Park MGM complete on the Las Vegas Strip
The Monte Carlo Resort & Casino on South Las Vegas Boulevard was named after more than two decades to call the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo. With the lighting of the new marquee and most signs in the hotel tower, the name change took place on Wednesday, May 9th.
The rebranding involves a partnership between MGM Resorts International and the Sydell Group.
Following completion of the brand renovation of the 3,000-room, 32-story 3-room hotel in downtown Strip, the project is reported to include Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas, a self-contained boutique hotel with 292 guest rooms and suites, private pool, casino and a NoMad Restaurant and the NoMad bar, which will cover the top four floors of the 360-foot tower, according to a press release.
However, those who wish to check in to the new NoMad Las Vegas must wait a few months before they can do so. The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that the transition will be completed in the fall of this year.
The Sydell Group is said to be inspired by the original NoMad Hotel in New York and to collaborate on designing NoMad Las Vegas with renowned French designer Jacques Garcia, who previously oversaw the design of the original NYC building.
Sydell Group founder and CEO Andrew Zobler said, “It’s a very special moment when this ambitious idea is realized.” “Together with MGM, we were able to rethink every element of the guest experience and create something personal on a grand scale”.
MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO Jim Murren said, “The opening of Park MGM and soon to be NoMad will connect the entire neighborhood we’ve created with The Park, T-Mobile Arena and CityCenter. We thank Andrew and the Sydell Group team for sharing our vision of creating a destination that includes the environment and appeals to a new generation of travelers, “says MGM.

MGM is investing more than $ 550 million in the complete redesign announced in late 2016, starting with the Lance Burton Theater, which was opened in December 2016 as a Park Theater with 5,200 seats and 150,000 square feet.
Other changes that have already been made include the opening of the Primrose restaurant and Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar, the expansion of meeting and convention rooms, a redesigned lobby and casino floor, three new pools with lounge and several bars, and the new Juniper Cocktail lounge, redesigned guest rooms and suites, as well as Moneyline Sports Book & Bar.
The Transformation continues this year as a new dining concept by Roy Choi, along with an Eataly marketplace, will open the launch of Lady Gaga’s special engagement at Park Theater and more.
Patrick Miller, President and COO of Park MGM, said, “It’s going to be something different not just for Las Vegas visitors, but for Las Vegas vegans as well,” the Las Vegas Review Journal said.
