The MGM Grand will feature a 50,000-square-foot casino with 1,450 machines and 54 gaming tables. It will be encircled by high-end retail shops, a VIP lounge, and upgraded amenities.
The new hotel will have 825 guest rooms with 320-threadcount sheets on the beds, flat-screen televisions, and Apple alarm clocks in every room. Also included are "world-class" restaurants, a 21,000-square-foot spa, and a 4,000-seat theater.
