SPRINGFIELD, MA (December 21, 2017) - MGM Springfield has unveiled the design inspiration for its 250 eclectic guestrooms, offering a glimpse of the boutique hotel experience that will debut within the integrated resort and casino development opening Q3 2018.
Like other elements of the property's outward-facing design, the five-story hotel tower will celebrate Springfield's heritage. The design narrative spotlights the city's literary and industrial foundations, weaving past into present through thoughtful design details and creative references.
The rooms, designed by MGM Resorts Design & Development, are a nod to surrounding historical architecture spanning nearly three centuries. With so much intriguing history to consider, no two rooms will be the same. This will translate across the tower's exterior, which will feature 45 varying window types and details such as wired glass.
"The extraordinary details in these rooms reflect the sense of curiosity and wonder of Springfield's history," said Mike Mathis, President of MGM Springfield. "There was a lot to work with as it related to the city's vibrant legacy and we hope the guestroom experience will capture that and inspire our guests to explore the resort and the city at large."
The guestroom portfolio will feature a range of accommodations-including the Resort Room, Main Street Queen & King and City Queen & King. The rooms will emulate apartment-style residences, with a luxurious-yet-cozy feel. Exposed concrete-planked ceilings will add an industrial touch. The rooms will feature artistic asymmetry with vinyl tiles and an angled area rug as well as light and dark walls, enveloping the room in an intimate ambiance.
Artistic elements will abound throughout the spaces. In the Queen rooms, quotes by renowned poet Emily Dickinson will adorn pillows, while the carpet in the room corridor will feature excerpts from her works. On the gallery wall, whimsical artwork will depict animals printed on dictionary sheets, while real books will be displayed as works of art from local artists.
In the coming months, MGM Springfield-the first resort-casino of its kind in Massachusetts -will unveil additional details about the offerings, design and amenities available to guests, including its portfolio of luxury suites. For more information, MGM Springfield's newsroom.
