Monte Carlo casino in Vegas to reopen Feb 15

MGM Mirage said on Friday its Monte Carlo Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip will reopen its doors for customers on Feb. 15 after being closed two weeks ago after a fire.

The company said Monte Carlo plans to open with no fewer than 1,200 guest rooms available and management anticipates an additional 1,300 rooms will become available a week later.

The remaining 500 rooms in Monte Carlo’s 3,000-room inventory are located on the upper floors and will remain out of service while undergoing more extensive redesign, MGM said.

The majority of guest services will open next Friday, including the resort’s casino, meeting and convention facilities, the wedding chapel and its spa & salon, MGM said.

Work continues both inside and outside the hotel, which was evacuated and temporarily closed on Jan. 25 after a fire engulfed parts of the upper floors, facade and roof.
