The MGM Grand is including in its renovation 42 "Stay Well" rooms that, for a few bucks more, "optimize and support the physical and emotional health and well-being of guests."
The rooms include features such as:
• Advanced room lighting to perk up the body's internal clock
• "Dawn simulator" alarm clocks that gradually awaken guests
• Shower water infused with vitamin C, which is said to neutralize chlorine to promote healthy hair and skin
• A special water filtration system to provide purified in-room water
• Advanced air purification systems, aromatheraphy, systems to block sleep-disruptive electromagnetic fields
• Coatings that break down bacteria and viruses on susceptible surfaces
• Access to Cleveland Clinic wellness software covering stress management, sleep and nutrition
• A "Stay Well Channel,'' featuring Dr. Deepak Chopra, to educate guests about the wellness features.
The system, reported on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, was developed with Delos LLC, which the Journal described as a New York real estate development company that tries to infuse architecture with wellness technology.
The rooms ''will help guests reverse jetlag; reset the body’s internal 24-hour clock and regulate melatonin levels to promote better sleep," the 5,044-room MGM Grand said in a statement Thursday.
“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,” Scott Sibella, president and COO of MGM Grand, said in a statement. “The Stay Well rooms at MGM Grand provide an unprecedented opportunity for a complete wellness hotel experience.”
The rooms will debut next month and will rent for an extra $30.
