MGM Grand Launches STAY WELL Rooms
With travelers demanding more health and fitness-related options while they are on the road, hotels are taking measures to give guests what they want by launching new initiatives and programs. Hotels across the country have introduced fitness rooms, launched healthy menu options, and are providing programming to keep guests in shape and get them active (See "Hotels Focus on Fitness").
Now, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas is getting into the health and wellness game with the introduction of 42 new STAY WELL rooms which were designed in partnership with Delos, a U.S.-based real estate developer that focuses on amenities that help sustain the environment and enhance health and well-being. The resort and Delos have spent the past four years collaborating with doctors and researchers at Columbia University Medical School and the renowned Cleveland Clinic, as well as with architects, engineers and contractors, to develop these innovative guestrooms.
“We know our guests come to Las Vegas to escape and unwind, but we also know that an increasing number of them are looking to take their wellness lifestyle ‘on the road’ as an extension of their daily, healthful lives at home,” said Scott Sibella, president and COO of MGM Grand, in an announcement. “The STAY WELL rooms at MGM Grand provide an unprecedented opportunity for a complete wellness hotel experience.”
The STAY WELL rooms, all located in the resorts main tower, feature 12 health and wellness features. The rooms will will help guests reverse jetlag; reset the body’s internal 24-hour clock and regulate melatonin levels to promote better sleep; incorporate an advanced water filtration system which infuses Vitamin C into shower water; and offer healthy food and beverage options.
STAY WELL Rooms at MGM Grand will include the following: Advanced room lighting which improves the body’s internal clock by assisting in the regulation of melatonin production and sleep/wake cycles; Wake up light therapy which exposes guests to short periods of blue-shaded lighting to increase energy and reverse the effects of jetlag; Nightlighting which consists of LED lamps designed to illuminate pathways at night without disturbing melatonin levels; Dawn simulator alarm clocks that gradually awaken the body; Vitamin C shower infusion which provides water infused with Vitamin C to help neutralize chlorine to promote healthy hair and skin; STAY WELL Air Purification System made up of an advanced HEPA-standard air purification system that reduces allergens, toxins and pathogens, creating better air quality and breathing; Aromatherapy; Water Filtration System that reduces disinfectant byproducts, chlorine, pesticides and some pharmaceutical and personal care products for the cleanest, most purified in-room water; EMF Protection to protect STAY WELL guests from electrical equipment that emanates sleep-disruptive Electromagnetic Fields (EMF); Photo-Catalytic Coating which breaks down bacteria, virus and VOCs on bacteria-susceptible surfaces; and Cleveland Clinic exclusive access which includes wellness software to aid with stress management, sleep, and nutrition programs, as well as access to healthy food/drink options developed by the Cleveland Clinic, which guests can use for up to 60 days after their stay.
The rooms will also offer a special wellness channel featuring health and wellness expert, and Delos advisory board member Dr. Deepak Chopra. The television channel will welcome guests to MGM Grand and show an educational video on the features in the room.
STAY WELL Rooms at MGM Grand will include a $30 per night upgrade above the prevailing room and suite rates.
