The casino’s lobby design features brick walls, dark wood floors, and unique dim-light fixtures, while the hotel room design boasts a brighter look, with floor-to-ceiling windows, dark green walls and modern furniture and artwork.

Despite competition in nearby Connecticut from Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, MGM expects to attract some 8 million visitors each year through its name, monthly entertainment acts, gaming and dining and retail options.
