What we're piecing together here is that Bellagio, MGM Grand, SKYLOFTS and Hakkasan will be opening hotels and resorts under their individual names, all to be developed and manager by MGM Hakkasan. So basically, the world is getting even more luxury hotels with an emphasis on the nightlife options. "Early targets" for the new hotels include Beverly Hills, New York and London.
Clearly, both sides of the partnership know more than enough about their respective businesses and indeed, they've already partnered up to bring Hakkasan to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But it will be interesting to see what an MGM Hakkasan Hotel will look and act like. We just pray there won't be a long line to get into the hotel.
PS. Are we just old or are people really not happy with just relaxing in their hotel room anymore?
PPS. Does this mean the Delano at Mandalay Bay is still happening? Or will it turn into a MGM Hakkasan property?
