Las Vegas: MGM Grand begins offering more 'wellness' rooms

The MGM Grand in Las Vegas is expanding the wellness program at its Strip hotel, offering healthful snacks, purified tap water and an air purification system, among other perks, to guests who choose those accommodations.  

The entire 14thfloor of the MGM Grand’s main tower now boasts rooms and suites embracing the hotel’s Stay Well program. A total of 171 rooms — more than four times the number with which Stay Well began in October — offer various special features.

Wellness experts at Delos created the 17 in-room enhancements. They include:

  • An air purification system that uses HEPA technology to reduce allergens, pathogens and toxins.
  • A mini-bar stocked with items such as almonds, coconut water and yogurt-covered raisins.
  • Vitamin C Shower infusion to neutralize chlorine and promote healthy hair and skin.
  • Wake-Up Light Therapy that exposes guests to short periods of blue-shaded lighting to increase energy and reverse the effects of jet lag.
  • A water filtration system that provides purified, in-room water.

Stay Well rooms cost an extra $30 a night on top of the regular room rate.

Reservations can be made online or by calling (800) 929-1111.

    Cape Cod's Natural Beauty Provides Perfect Summertime Escape

    CAPE COD, MASS — The Cape Cod experience, for some, is lathering on the sunscreen, grabbing the boogie board and riding the waves of the cold Atlantic Ocean. For others, it's eating freshly shucked oysters and cracking a boiled lobster and extracting meat like a skilled surgeon.
