MGM Resorts International announced that it is set to end midweek hotel shutdowns at the Mirage, Mandalay Bay, and Park MGM starting on March 3. Due to lagging travel because of the pandemic, Mandalay Bay and Park MGM had their hotel towers closed during the week and the Mirage had been closed completely on weekdays for the last few weeks. Officials say that travel demand is now starting to increase as restrictions are being eased and Covid case numbers are dropping in the state of Nevada and around the country. The news is being welcomed by local industry analysts, who say that the reopenings will be good for the state economy in terms of getting laid off and furloughed employees back to work and in increased visitor spending.
