LAS VEGAS – Due to a lack of demand in the aftermath of COVID-19 travel fallout, MGM Resorts will shut down hotel operations during the midweek at the Mirage and Mandalay Bay resorts.

Starting on Nov. 30, the hotel towers at Mirage and Mandalay Bay will open at noon on Thursdays and stay open until noon on Mondays.

Casinos, restaurants and amenities inside The Strip resorts will remain open.
