Park MGM becomes the first fully smoke-free hotel in Las Vegas … and our next must-visit resort

Park MGM, the newest destination resort on the Las Vegas strip, will reopen for the first time since the pandemic later this month… and with it, it will become Las Vegas’s first ever fully smoke-free casino. 

If you’re like us at The Luxe Review Towers and love all the high-end indulgence Las Vegas has to offer – but not the less-than-luxe vibe of leaving the biggest hotels smelling of smoke – this news will send the resort straight to the top of your Sin City to-do list. 

Both the Park MGM and its luxe hotel-within-a-hotel, NoMad Las Vegas, will reopen their doors on September 30, and both will be smoke-free.

“Opening Park MGM and NoMad represent significant milestones, as they are the last of our properties to welcome back employees and guests alike,” said Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts CEO and President.

“The last six months have presented extraordinary challenges and I could not be prouder of the MGM Resorts team for the tireless effort required to get us here. There is much work ahead as we remain focused on the health and safety of our employees and guests, but this is an important moment for us,” he added.

Park MGM is the newest resort on the Strip, having opened in late 2018 with all non-smoking guestrooms, and has quickly become one of the city’s go-to places for entertainment, dining and more. While amenities will be limited initially at opening, guests will be able to enjoy some of the resort’s most popular spots including the vibrant Italian marketplace, Eataly; Bavette’s Steakhouse; Primrose; and the pool. 

Anton Nikodemus, President of MGM Resorts’ Las Vegas Portfolio, said, “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.”

The smoke-free cleanliness compliments the resort’s “seven-point safety plan” – a set of protocols designed with medical and scientific experts to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. This includes employee and guest mask requirements, plexiglass barriers, and contactless check-in.

MGM also announced that its Four Seasons Las Vegas property will reopen on September 25.
