Full Review

Twenty years after it opened, the Monte Carlo is no more. No, they didn’t implode it and start over, but instead they have done a complete top to bottom remodel to turn it into a new hotel called Park MGM and a boutique hotel within the hotel, NoMad Las Vegas, a sister to the popular New York NoMad and The Line in Los Angeles.

The $450 million renovation touched every single corner of the hotel including the casino, lobby, shopping, pool area, and all of the guest rooms. Most (if not all) of the restaurants have been replaced as will the nightlife options, which will include a new nightclub.

The centerpiece of the property is the Park Theater, a 5,000 seat entertainment venue that hosts a series of high-profile headliners including  Lady Gaga, Cher, and Britney Spears.

The main hotel is the Park MGM, aligned with the neighboring The Park dining and entertainment plaza and T-Mobile Arena. The new look is described as European and “residential” with clean lines, elegant furnishings, and a “robust art program.” It brings with it a new restaurant, Eataly, the popular marketplace concept that has dozens of outlets worldwide and features to-go counters, sit down restaurants, cafes, and more.

NoMad Las Vegas takes over 292 guest rooms and suites and feature its own porte corchere, lobby, and pool. It will be patterned after the award-winning New York NoMad run by the same company that does The Line in Los Angeles and Freehand hotels in Chicago and Miami. Design is TBD but expect it to be swank and expensive. This part of the hotel will also get a Las Vegas version of NoMad restaurant, which wins raves and stars at its New York outlet.

Standard accommodations are certainly nicer than they were in the Monte Carlo days but on the small side compared to more modern hotels.  The good news is they have stylish and comfortable furnishings, plenty of tech, and lots of amenities to keep you feeling as if you’re staying in a much fancier place than you actually are.

Unsurprisingly, the new name and decor has brought along with it higher prices.  Expect to pay in the $150-$200 range during the week and over $200 a night on weekends.  That’s before the $37 per night (plus tax) resort fee.

And don’t forget about the fees for parking that were instituted in 2016. It costs $15 per day for self parking and $24 per day for valet for hotel guests and non-guests alike. The only way to get out of it is if you have a players’ club card at the Pearl or above level, which gets you free self-parking and the Gold or above level, which gets you free valet
