There are Some Grand Changes Happening to the MGM Grand

Take a long last look at this hotel room inside the massive MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Actually, don't stare too long, you might die of boredom.
Fortunately for all of us, the MGM Grand is giving its 4,000 tower rooms a grand makeover and as our little sibling, VegasChatter reported last week, the renovations are going on right now, starting on the 12th floor. The entire hotel should be completed by October 2012.
While VC tried to break through the 12th floor for a sneak peek of the renos (the elevator wouldn't even register the 12th floor button), MGM Grand has decided to put everything on display with their renovations website--TheGrandRenovation.com.
We were super psyched that MGM would do a renovations blog--we love it when hotels keep us up to date--but actual info on the renovations is sparse and there is nary a construction photo.
We do know, however, that the hotel will upgrade everything inside the rooms from the beds to the carpeting to the tech offerings. Once it's done, the rooms will certainly look a lot brighter than they used to be. Check out this photo:
We might actually get lucky in these rooms! Until then, we'll just have to make do with some creepy old Hollywood actor.
