    I think these are pretty slick looking, but I can't stand the carpeting, that part is a huge turn off. I would have gone with a dark wood-like vinyl plank. Depending on pricing I may consider MC in the future - I definitely would hope it stays on the low side of mid-tier.

    I don't hate it, but I don't love it. It's kind of an odd blend between mid-century, stark modern, and old fashioned. I personally like the old rooms better, but I tend to like old world. Bathrooms will be the make or break factor for us in trying it. Shower curtains will be a deal breaker.

    I just hope they don't go for the same stark design in the casino....I always found it really pretty with the old world touches.

    I actually DO like the bedding. Comforters always scare me in hotel rooms...white sheeting means they HAVE to change them more. (Many moons ago, I was a maid....cleaning comforters is about as rare as winning jackpots...so I'm a huge fan of the sheeting trend!) I do like the window seating in the queen, like Caroline mentioned.

    But we have a soft spot for MC, I hope it goes over well!

    Upon seeing the photos of the new rooms, my wife asked about all of the pictures clustered together on the walls. I had to explain that they were "inspirationally placed around the room." [emoji848]

    Yeah like many others have said, upgrade doesn't impress me. The carpet is awful and the colors are just, well, random. The rooms look more downtown-y than belonging to a renewed Strip room. Oh well, I think they should have kept it as is.

    Am I the only one concerned with the apparant lack of blackout curtains? I know we've had many threads about the light leaking through the shutters at MSS. But opaque drapes seems like enough? Maybe I'm the only one that ends their night with 5am breakfast at Peppermill. :drunk:

    No, you are definitely NOT the only one. I just didn't even think about or realize it until you said it. I also usually find myself sleeping after sun-up in Vegas and I hate it when gets much if any sun in while I"m trying to sleep. I even went through this at home because my wife kept trying to buy light colored curtains and I couldn't get her to realize they were all too thin and wouldn't block out much light.

    There's got to be a website to provide MGM/Sydell Group our early opinions about this new remodel.

    Might just be the pic, but I guarantee there will be blackout shades. I'm assuming they will put the automated blinds system that they have installed at Bellagio/Vdara/Aria.They would receive way too many complaints about a lack of blackout shades.

    This is like an Embassy Suites 40 miles outside of Atlanta my work per diem will only just cover.

    You're not the only one Sonya! I don't just love my black out drapes in Vegas, I need them. I was just sidetracked by the weird mismash design-wise to even get to the drapes.

    No blackout drapes and probably no lazy river...it's like they ripped out the charm of MC. I'm trying actually not to say too much negative on the room, as I'd like to see it thrive....but the "upgrade" so far doesn't have my heart skipping a beat.

    PS I just looked at the pics again, figuring the blackout drapes had to be hidden. Holy cripes, I am NOT seeing drapes. That's like serving dinner without utensils!

    I think the color schemes look OK. That big chunky table and chair don't really fit and the lighting fixtures by the beds are very Holiday Inn. The stuff on the wall is weirdly placed, some affectation of I don't know what. In the King room, one big-ass thing on the side wall would have looked better.
