We had a room in the West wing. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. It was located on the strip so access to other hotels/casinos was pretty easy. Check-in/out was a breeze. There are a lot of things to do in the hotel itself like the David
Copperfield show, Ka, lazy pool, a large casino etc. From here there is also an easy access to New York-New York and Excalibur. Overall a fine stay and nothing to complain about.
Stayed at the MGM Grand for my recent wedding in Las Vegas. Has a great time. Rooms were wonderful - we had a Tower Spa Suite. Every employee was cheerful and helpful that we interacted with. Dining options were great, and we had a great dinner
the night we arrived at Pub 1842!
The only real complaint was the Resort Fees. Getting the additional charge (on top of your room rate) with no option to decline. Per the MGM Website FAQs, the resort fees $32.48/day and cover in-room high speed internet and wi-fi, daily USA Today newspaper, local and toll-free numbered calls, limited business services such as notary and boarding pass printing, and free access to the Cardio Room located on the 4th floor, in the 300 wing.
During my 4 night stay, I did not see a single USA Today newspaper, did not dial a single call, did not use notary service or print boarding passes, and never set foot in the cardio room. There was limited use of the wi-fi when we were actually in our rooms, which was minimal. So $32.48/day for minimal wi-fi usage - ridiculous! That is the only reason I downrated the MGM Grand to a 4 on value for the money.
We chose this hotel mainly because it supposedly had a great pool to hang out at...and we were not disappointed. It's lazy river is very nice. However, we did find it strange that there was never a line for the bathroom considering how much people
were drinking by the pool. It's a little far when walking to the Venetian and Caesars, but it's doable. No complaints.
I have stayed for years at the MGM for business conventions because of the convenience of the monorail. In past years it has always been acceptable to excellent. My trip in January of 2015 was eye opening to say the least. The issue started when I
dropped a ring and it rolled under the night stand. To find it I used a small LED flashlight from my briefcase. What was under the night stand was at least a decade worth of dust bunnies and absolute filth. Upon that discovery I started to more closely examine the room and found the carpet stained and heavily worn, the furniture had stains showing. In addition the sink and shower drains did not function well so by the end of the shower I was standing in water (gross). Thank goodness I spent very little time in the room and my wife was not with me!
This was my first trip to Vegas. I was catching a flight the next day so I thought I would drive to Vegas early and just stay the night. I was so glad I did!!! Stayed at the MGM and it was everything I had hoped it would be! Everyone was so kind
and helpful! My room was amazing. Had a great view and well worth the price! Going back again with my husband and plan on staying at the MGM again!!!
The stay here was convenient as we attended a fight in the MgM arena. Staff was nice and things were clean. The most annoying thing was that the sink and tub drains were obviously in need of some repair as water stood in both forever.
