Las Vegas Hotel Rooms Each Worth $20,000 More Than Atlantic City
MGM Grand in Las Vegas is making a big hubaloo over their new room renovations that are expected to be open to the public as soon as November with renovation continuing into 2012. Good those rooms are old and ugly, as you can see from my pictures on Vegas Chatter.
Renovations are coming in at $160,000,000 for 3,570 rooms. A total of almost $45,000 per room. Not bad. This got me to thinking about how that total compared to Borgata in Atlantic City, who planned their renovations earlier this year. Well, not surprising Borgata is spending much less updating their rooms. Borgata will be spending a total of $50,000,000 for 2,000 room renovations. That’s $25,000 per room.
So where is the extra $20,000 going by MGM Grand? Much of it is probably the bathroom – no joke. Borgata has relatively new and pretty nice bathrooms that can easily be updated, whereas MGM Grand has old bathrooms that will need top to bottom renovations.
