**Starting Oct. 3, 2016, the Monte Carlo will undergo construction that will close The Pub, outlets in the Street of Dreams, rooms and the pool. Resort guests will be able to receive free admission to MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay pool complexes. Access to the tram to Aria and Bellagio will be available to guests for consistent, reliable transportation. Upon check-in, you will receive a notice of this construction and anything else that might be going on during your stay.**
Monte Carlo is ideally situated on the southern end of the Strip and is convenient to almost everything.
From the glowing crystal chandeliers to the sparkling marble floors, an exquisite ambience is apparent upon entering the lobby. Monte Carlo guests are accommodated in upscale, stylish rooms featuring only the best — pillow-top mattresses, fine linens, wood furnishings, iHome docking stations and flat-screen TVs. The bathrooms boast Italian marble.
All hotel rooms are non-smoking. Keep in mind there is a $250 cleaning fee charged at checkout for guests who smoke in an of the rooms.
A boutique hotel experience can be found on the top (32nd) floor. HOTEL32 truly pampers visitors. You’ll feel like a VIP with round-trip limousine service to the airport, a personal suite assistant, private in-room check-in and access to a private lounge. The fridge is even stocked to quench your every desire.
Dining at Monte Carlo covers an expansive epicurean spectrum, from the Chinese- and sushi-style meals of the Dragon Noodle Co. & Sushi Bar to the spicy festivities at Diablo’s Cantina. Brand Steakhouse offers an enticing evening of fine dining with oversized steaks and chops cooked to order, while d.vino is perfect for connoisseurs of Italian food and wine.
Guests looking for a quick bite to eat have access to a range of different dining options at the Monte Carlo. The Buffet offers a cornucopia of American and international dishes. And the food court houses such well-loved brands as Manchu Wok, Sbarro, Rubio’s and Starbucks.
Several casual, indoor/outdoor eateries have been constructed as part of a pedestrian-oriented experience along Monte Carlo’s Strip-facing facade. This includes the rollicking Double Barrel Roadhouse, which offers live music and the sexy “DB Girls.” Its drinks menu is also packed with a wide range of spirits, cocktails, wines and craft beers. Yusho by Chicago chef Matthias Merges serves Japanese-inspired street food like noodles and steamed buns as well as beers and a sake selection, and 800 Degrees Pizzeria has fired up its oven to prepare delicious thin-crust pizzas. There’s also a Sambalatte coffee shop, and you can get inventive ice creams and sorbets at BLVD Creamery. A rotating roster of live bands, solo musicians and street performers appear on the plaza daily from late afternoon until late night.
In addition, guests are a quick walk away from the six-acre dining and entertainment district called The Park in the street between Monte Carlo and New York-New York. The Park houses casual eateries and bars and also connects to the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena in partnership with AEG.
Visitors who want a really cool nightlife experience can stop by the Minus5 Ice Bar. The bar is made entirely of Canadian ice. There are ice sofas, ice sculptures, ice walls and even ice cups. Ignite Lounge is another hip spot featuring sexy cocktails, LED color-changing lights and deep red-tinted doors.
There is a charge for parking. Self-parking fees are: Free for less than one hour; $5 for 1 to 2 hours, $8 for 2 to 4 hours, $10 for 4 to 24 hours. Valet fees: $10 for 0 to 4 hours; $15 for 4 to 24 hours. Parking fees repeat for each 24-hour period. The parking fee for registered hotel guests includes in-out privileges within the same parking type (self or valet) across all MGM Resorts hotels (subject to availability).
A free tram connects Monte Carlo to CityCenter and Bellagio and is open to the public.
Monte Carlo also features a fine Spa & Salon, a fully equipped fitness center and a pool with a lazy river and a sand volleyball court. The pool is currently under construction, but resort guests will receive free admission to MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay pool complexes.
Monte Carlo has a fine setting that’s ripe with amenities and ideally located near all the Strip has to offer.
