Monte Carlo


The Monte Carlo opened on June 21, 1996 at 12:01 A.M.  Originally called "The Grand Victoria", the name was changed to "Victoria" after the MGM Grand complained, and then changed completely to the "Monte Carlo".   The hotel is a four-diamond resort.

Beautiful statues near the Strip entrance of the Monte Carlo. 

The casino evokes the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo.  The Monte Carlo on May 8, 2009,  announced the creation of HOTEL32 which occupies the top four floors and offers an ultra-luxury boutique hotel.


Lance Burton was the headlining magician at the Monte Carlo for many years; he performed in the Lance Burton Theater. 


Here, we're at a front entrance to the casino from the Strip.  A people-mover was put in operation on December 3, 2009 that runs from the Monte Carlo to the Bellagio with a stop at the Crystals retail district in City Center; service is every 5 minutes.  The people mover replaces a tram that was taken out of service in August, 2006 for construction of City Center.


In this picture, same location as above, but looking to the right.  The Monte Carlo was the scene of a fire that occurred on the top floors of the hotel tower on January 25, 2008 and which closed the hotel.  The fire was caused by a welding torch.  The Monte Carlos re-opened on February 15, 2008; MGM-Mirage officials calculate losses due to damage and lost business totaled almost $100 million.
