Las Vegas is usually associated with drunken debauchery, late nights and gambling, but the MGM Grand has turned the Sin City stereotype on its head and created the world's most health-conscious hotel.
Guests booked in to stay in a 'Stay Well' room will be able experience 16 novel health amenities designed by wellness experts - the hotel describes the experience as 'the first of its kind in the world.'
The 41 rooms, which have undergone a redesign, have high-tech ventilation systems designed to more humidify and purify the air and will be cleaned with hypoallergenic products.
In the rooms, which cost $30 more a night, bacteria-susceptible surfaces such as doorknobs will be coated with photo-patalytic coating which breaks down bacteria and viruses.
The lighting has been carefully selected and most lights are on the red side of the color spectrum to help contribute to a better night’s sleep as opposed to blue lighting which can inhibit the body's reproduction of sleep hormone melatonin.
The bathroom light apparently has higher amounts of blue light to help guests wake up not feeling groggy.
Even breathing in the rooms, which are available later this month, is not like normal - the air has a purification system designed to reduce allergens, toxins and pathogens.
The rooms include extra soundproofing to help guests sleep better.
A special room-service menu will offer dishes designed by the Cleveland Clinic so it will be packed with optimum levels of nutrition.
The rooms are part of the resort’s $160 million renovation and were created by Delos, a New York real estate developer.
It took four years for Delos and the Columbia University Medical Center and Cleveland Clinic to come up with the technology.
The hotel is already seeing a 'considerable amount' of bookings, Tim Kelly, vice president of hotel operations told Las Vegas Weekly.
