Park MGM Peacock Suite Las Vegas Review
The Park MGM (formerly Monte Carlo) is one of my favorite spots to stay in Vegas. It has a great location, the rooms are relatively recently updated, prices are reasonable, and the entire property is smoke free. Plus I can earn Hyatt elite qualifying nights with paid stays. As an MGM Rewards Gold elite, I also don’t have to pay resort fees.
I prefer the NoMad Hotel located on the top floors, but the Park MGM is perfectly fine.
During my most recent stay, I booked a standard King room. Upon check in, I asked if there were any upgrades available and was offered a Peacock Suite. As it wasn’t a room type I had tried before, I said yes, despite the warning of only having a double size Murphy bed.
I was assigned room 5302 on the 5th floor. It is located immediately off of the elevator, but I didn’t notice any noise issues.
While the size of the room is much larger than the standard rooms, it isn’t a true suite.
As you enter, there is a bar area to the left with stocked mini bar and coffee set up. To the right is a closet with safe.
The rest of the room is just one large open space. There is a connecting door to another room; I think the idea is that this would typically be used as a hospitality suite.
A sitting area faces a large wall mounted TV with external sound bar. Along the window is a large booth type couch, two chairs and a dining table.
The bed is a Murphy bed that could be folded up if you were having an event in the suite.
The biggest problem I found is that the bed, because of the way it folds down, is about a foot away from the wall. So you can’t prop yourself up against the wall and there is no headboard.
The window has booth a sheer curtain and a full black out curtain. Both are powered with a switching on the wall. I was surprised how dark the room was with the curtains closed; many rooms in Vegas don’t block out all the light.
The bathroom is set up as ADA accessible. A single vanity sits under the mirror. A toilet is off to the side with grab bars.
The shower is set up for wheel chairs; no curb to get over. There are two shower heads – one wall mounted and one hand held. Both can be on at the same time which I appreciate.
There is only a cloth shower curtained I found I had to put a towel down just past the curtain so as not to flood the rest of the bathroom.
Overall the room offers a lot more space than a standard room. The ADA bathroom isn’t as nice as the standard bathrooms and the Murphy bed isn’t very comfortable. While it is nice to have the added space, I don’t actually think that the average person would gain much from this. It can really only be used by one person (because of the small bed); and most people staying by themselves don’t need a huge amount of space to spread out.
