MGM Grand Detroit

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Food in the casino was expensive compared to vegas casinos

All MGM associates were professional and very helpful. They were willing to go above and beyond to help me.

I prepaid for 3 nights..... the lady over the front desk could not find my reservation with my last name... took a long time to figure it out. The rooms are quite small. Me, my wife, and my 2 year old daughter checked in the room but the room had only 2 towels. The commode was not clean. No refrigerator or microwave. Using any of these costs $20 per night while a microwave they give at $20/night can be bought with the same price. I stayed in many 4* and 5* hotels. But this is the first hotel I have seen without any coffee makers inside the room. We had a very bad time as we badly needed coffee in the morning. Had to go to the lobby to get some coffee every morning. The people handling the valet parking are quick and smart and must be appreciated. Yet the hotel is not worth staying unless you love the casino.

The room was gorgeous but if the lighting wasn't so dim you'd notice the stains in the carpet, on the bedding ( yellow stains on comforter), and collection of dirt behind sofa. There is general lobby area for hotel guests that is where you must get your coffee in the AM. No coffee makers in the room. Not a problem except 4 different times and various times of day and night there were no cups and hot chocolate powder was empty the one time we wanted it. Staff was great and friendly. Security was high. No one entered hotel lobby without sharing their key. Valet and Bellmen were quick. The casino was spacious and clean Packed tight and uncomfortable Saturday night but by Monday quiet I'd revisit

Very nice and clean rooms. Hotel staff were great. The casino area was too smoky For us. They need better ventilation systems.

Great hotel, great staff. There could have been more dining options in the hotel. The buffer was good though.

we were surprised by two things. First the staff at the front desk were not very friendly. Almost put off we were there. It was even more difficult to hear them as the entry area of the hotel is extremely loud with very poor acoustics. The secure hotel area was very welcome and besides the front desk the other staff were very helpful. Would not recommend the Tap restaurant. The quality of food was below average compared with the price.

This was my first trip to Detroit in a long time. This is a first class property with great amenities....a very good value. One doesn't need to venture out unless you want to.

The hotel was great. Staff was wonderful! Up beat & friendly from the Valet, door man, registration desk. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Was great. Each time we stay there we are pleased.

Front desk staff was professional,courteous,and efficient. Upon departure,my flight arrangements were completed for me (boarding pass, luggage check, and seating). Rooms are clean with plush bedding. Huge shower for two people. Enjoyed the aromatic smell upon entering lobby. I would recommend this hotel.

I was treated as royalty for my stay, valet parking is included with your stay never had any problems, the staff was kind always open doors never seem as if they were upset. I enjoyed my stay there.

We spent the night here to celebrate my friend’s birthday. From the moment we stepped inside, it was amazing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had a great time. The beds were super comfy, and we even got a free late checkout. Can't wait to go back again soon!

The Casino was the best ever, the hotel experience was awful. They continued to come to my room stating they were getting complaints of loud music, and I was not even playing any. This was not a room I got for free I paid $339 dollars for one night and I felt I was disrespected by the management staff. I will visit the casino, but the hotel was not to my liking. For the money I spent I should have gotten much better service.

The casino itself wasn't overly impressive but it might be because I frequent Las Vegas and CT MGM Grand. I felt that the buffet was not worth the money unless you eat a lot of crabs. The hotel room was fabulous and the bed was beyond perfect. I'd love to replicate the entire bed and bedding for my room.

MGM Detroit is great. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I will be staying with them again

The hotel is beautiful and the staff were more than accomodating. Even though the hotel is a non-smoking premise there was still a strong smell of cigarette smoke in the room. It was probably coming from the adjoining casino which allows smoking. Also, we were disappointed that weekday room service hours did not extend beyond 11:00pm and the menu selection was very limited

We were turned off at first by the casino, but our stay got a lot better after finally getting into our room. The only bad thing was that Orbitz messed up our reservation. Fortunately the hotel took care of it that evening and straightened everything out the next day.
