M Resort Spa Casino Receives 2010 Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award

November 12, 2009 by  

The M Resort Spa Casino, the newest resort to open in Las Vegas, was just announced as the recipient of the prestigious 2010 Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Award. Open just eight months, the $1 billion M Resort successfully opened on time and under budget on March 1, 2009.

“This is a true testament to the hard work of our team members. They have embraced our commitment to consistently provide the very best service, atmosphere and experience to our guests. To receive this award within our first year of operation is a huge accomplishment for us,” said Anthony A. Marnell III, Chairman and CEO, the M Resort.

The M Resort is the product of a collaboration between Anthony A. Marnell III, Chairman and CEO of the M Resort and his father, architect Tony Marnell, Chairman of Marnell Corrao Associates, the premier construction and development company responsible for notable projects throughout Las Vegas including Wynn, Treasure Island, the Mirage, Caesars Palace and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Since 1976, the Marnell family name has been synonymous with architectural vision, quality and integrity. The Marnells set the standard for casino-resorts worldwide with the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, which became the benchmark for many innovations in Las Vegas and throughout the world that are still widely used today. The M Resort includes both architectural innovation as well as the Marnell brand of hospitality.

The 390 room boutique resort caters to both Las Vegas residents and out-of-town guests. It is the first property travelers from Southern California encounter when driving in to Las Vegas.

“Our resort is really a hybrid property catering to both locals and tourists; the atmosphere is a mix of Los Angeles, Scottsdale and New York – with a bit of Las Vegas thrown in. The M has a lot of offer and exceptional service is at the top of the list,” said Marnell.

Forbes Travel Guide, formerly Mobil Travel Guide, has defined the standard of excellence in hotel, restaurant and spa experiences since 1958. This year’s list includes distinguished properties in destinations throughout North America, as well as international ratings in Hong Kong, Macau and Beijing.
