Park MGM includes NoMad boutique hotel on the top floors, a bar, restaurant, and a high limit gaming room. It also contains Las Vegas’ only Eataly and a host of restaurants.
The reopening of Park MGM will complete the reopening of all MGM Resorts properties around the world.
Properties in Nevada closed in March because of the COVID-19 crisis.
Park MGM and NoMad will be smoke-free
Anton Nikodemus, president of MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas properties, said the following in a statement,
“As we looked toward our reopening, we identified an opportunity to be responsive to recurring guest demand for a fully non-smoking casino resort on The Strip. With an expansive Las Vegas portfolio, MGM Resorts is able to offer an array of options for visitors, all within the MGM Resorts family.”
Why go smoke-free?
Clean air is a major feature of MGM Resorts’ Seven Point Health and Safety Plan. The company tries to use as much outside air circulation as possible at all of its properties. Park MGM having smoke-free air should make this the cleanest air to breathe inside of a Las Vegas casino.
There seems to be a lot of patrons looking for a smoke-free casino option, as the social media response has been overwhelmingly positive. Whether it is to make breathing easier while wearing a face-covering, or to ensure cleaner air when eating and drinking, people seem pleased.
Additionally, the vast majority of tourists visiting Las Vegas are driving from nearby states like California. The air quality in California and surrounding states has been very poor due to wildfires burning for weeks.
Park MGM will present an opportunity for these guests to breathe fresh air.
More Las Vegas casino openings
Tropicana will reopen on Sept. 17. Similar to other Las Vegas casinos, the property will operate at 50% of its maximum capacity. Additionally, the amenities, promotions, and dining options will be limited.
William Hill will operate the sportsbook.
