While millions of people continue to work from home, MGM Resorts unveils solutions for a change of scene in Las Vegas. Olivia Palamountain reports
“Viva Las Office” by MGM Resorts is a new package that aims to banish the monotony of working from home with stays at the Bellagio and Aria resorts in Las Vegas.
Starting at US$101 per night (based on a five-night stay), the stays offer elevated amenities and benefits including flexible check-in and check-out times, a dedicated executive assistant to handle all reservations and experiences, and daily food and beverage credit.
MGM Resorts’ latest drive to get travellers back into their hotels joins the “Offices at The London West Hollywood” initiative now available at the London West Hollywood in Los Angeles, where converted suites have been made available at a monthly rate.Guests who book any of the Viva Las Office packages also will receive access to discounted airfares through hop-on jet service JSX, and a discount on activities around the city including helicopter and jeep tours.
“We understand that working from home every day can become taxing and monotonous, and we are excited to offer a safe and curated experience here at Bellagio and Aria that combines work and play,” said Atif Rafiq, president of commercial and growth for MGM Resorts.
“These packages are designed to offer the best of both worlds. A safe, spacious work setting while still allowing guests to enjoy the amenities and experiences Las Vegas is known for through a single offering.”
