One of the hotel towers at the MGM Grand is having 700 of its hotel rooms remodeled with a "desert" aesthetic and is expected to be opened later this year.
In a statement, MGM Resorts International stated the rooms in the Studio Tower (formerly known as the West Wing) will have a “retro desert feel” using fresh pink and chartreuse green colors.
The rooms are expected to feature rounded window seats, enlarged headboards and curated artwork. Bathrooms will have space-saving barn doors, an illuminated vanity, marble shower floors and new chrome fixtures.
MGM Grand President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Neubecker said: "We wanted to make a fresh statement with our new Studio Tower rooms by creating a relaxing atmosphere that appeals to not only leisure travelers here on vacation, but also our business travelers looking for a refreshing reprieve after a long day of meetings.
"With this remodel, we found innovative ways to enlarge spaces and upgrade amenities while adding modern conveniences so our guests can truly enjoy a comfortable sanctuary during their stay."
Each room will provide conveniences including a built-in recessed mini-bar, 55-inch flat-screen TV, open closet, readily available USB power outlets and additional shelving.
Avenue Interior Design Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director Ashley Manhan Justman added: "We envisioned bringing a bit of nostalgia to MGM Grand that reinvents the past while incorporating a modernized version of mid-century Palm Springs.
"We designed an exclusive retreat with a stylish color palette, contemporary furniture and geometric wall coverings to bring to life a retro-chic vacation revival."
The rooms are expected to be fully completed in December but guests will be able to start booking in late October.
