This was my first time in vegas so i expected alot. When i arrived at the mgm they didnt have the room i wanted availible so they gave me the west wing. I didnt like the room at all. First of all as soon as you open the door you walk right into the bathroom. Except the toilet is in a tiny glass room where you cant breathe in. No tub, shower only, didnt like that. Room is very small with no comfortable furniture. The chair they put in the room you will slide right off. No view! The bed was so so. The safe didnt work. The west wing is dark and dingy. The elevators to the west wing didnt work. So we had to walk far to another set of elevators. All in all the casino was nice but the west wing room i wouldnt reccomend!

  West Wing
Recently remarried and spent my honeymoon at the MGM (with one rather unfortunate night at Excalibur, also). Stayed in the newly renovated West Wing, which is the old Emerald Tower updated. Here's a brief overview:
Pluses: The king bed was extraordinary, extremely comfortable, so much so it was difficult to get out of it (insert your own honeymoon joke here). The shower was marvelous, also. It's huge with a hand wand in addition to the large, powerful spray from the wall. Frankly, I could have spent more time in here and been very happy. Other good things: huge nightstands that accommodate a lot of things, a huge lighted closet and a neat little plasma TV tucked into the mirror of the bathroom.
Minuses: There is absolutely no counter space in the bathroom. They've put in a series of shelves to the floor, but it's simply not enough. The toilet is its own tiny glass room, which made both of us feel like we were in a public bathroom. And the room is very dark, with one window that is covered; ours overlooked a courtyard area.
Overall: It's nice, we'd probably stay here again, largely because the bed and the shower made up for the other things. Frankly, when we're in Vegas, most of what we do in the room revolves around the bed and the shower anyway, so why not? This is a non-traditional, "modern" room. If that doesn't appeal to you, stay away.
The MGM continues to be a good value, in my opinion. The staff is courteous and I've never had an issue with not getting what I'd reserved or requested. I'm by no means a high roller, but I'm comfortable here. This was my wife's first visit to the MGM and she was impressed. They've updated the casino quite a bit since I was here in 2004, adding a new bar and poker area and completely updating the sportsbook. Keno has somehow disappeared; not sure why. There's a great new restaurant called "Diego" that should be tried. Really great Mexican food.

  We stayed in MGM in May 2005. The rooms were nice, but stuffy. The windows did not open. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The hotel was extremely clean. The location was good, as I strategically planned our trip. We stayed at MGM for half our stay, and Mirage the other half. The pool was nice. MGM was quite large, and it took a while to get to our room. It was a bit pricy for what you actually get. I would stay there again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

  I went with my 7-month pregnant wife to stay at a room with a jacuzzi for her birthday. Everything we had was supposed to be first class, and she wanted to avoid walking too much and still take some pictures of some of the casinos. They overbooked us and sent us to the Rio which is off the strip, is tacky (to our tastes) and has a much more limited choice of restaurants and shops. To top it off, they claimed they would give us the second night free, but they instead gave us a much cheaper room without a jacuzzi.
At the very least I'd expect them to put us up in a comparable resort in the strip with a comparable room!
Also, after speaking with others in the area, the MGM Grand has some notoriety for overbooking their rooms even more than other hotels in the area.

  This is the clear winner on the strip. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The check in and out was effortless. The casino is huge but well laid out. Entertainment is good and I especially love the lions. I have a Rain Forest where I live but still ate at the one at MGM and enjoyed myself immensely. My favorite hotel on the strip thus far. AVOID THE MONTE CARLO at all costs. My hat is off to the MGM Grand and their superb staff.

  My mom and I stayed at the MGM for five nights the week of July 17. Here is a breakdown of the stay:

Check in: Fast. I was kind of ticked because we booked the "summer splash getaway" that was supposed to include a free inner tube rental, $35 dining credit, etc. They didn't bother to mention on the website or on the phone when I booked that you had to book the room with a regular credit card to get the special and I couldn't get it because I booked with a debit card. So needless to say, I didn't go to the pool because I didn't want to spend $50 to rent inner tubes.

Room: We stayed in the Grand Tower. It was clean and had a great view, but they really need to update these rooms. They are kind of dark and depressing. The shower situation wasn't great either because the shower curtain didn't have weights in it and it blew in towards you. This makes it hard for women who need to shave.

Casino: The casino is huge. Be prepared to walk. I have visited MGM several times before and it was really different this time because there are a lot more bars and ultra lounges and such. I didn't care a lot for that. I especially did not like the way they remodeled the rotunda area (the big purple room). It used to be really neat with a stage where bands would play, but now its a stupid bar with hoochie dancing girls and poker tables. But other than that, I liked the awesome Star Wars penny slots and the public restrooms are huge and really nice and clean.

Buffet: I would skip this one and go to the Mirage or the Luxor. I would rate this buffet as average. Didn't have a lot of variety as some of the others do. The Mirage buffet has an excellent variety of good stuff and if you are going to spend the money on a buffet, I would recommend that one.

Pool: We didn't go, not only because we were jipped out of our free inner tube rental, but you have to walk through the casino and all the way down the studio walk to get to it. And as my mom and I are kind of conservative, we didn't like that.

Overall: The MGM is a fun place and I do like it. But I think next time, I will stay at Luxor. I think the tower rooms at Luxor are a little better because they have a separate tub and shower and nice floor to ceiling windows. Their casino isn't quite as huge, and the pool is easier to get to. There are back hallways to get to it and you don't have to walk through the casino or anything. MGM should take some of the money they are spending on opening more bars and use it to remodel their rooms and re-do their buffet. But all in all, the service was good for the most part and their employees are friendly.

  I have reservations at the MGM for Sept. 16, 2005. I requested the Grand Tower Room however orginally I was planning to select the West Wing. On the website it looks better than the Grand Tower Room however it has no sofa to sit down. Has anyone stayed in the West Wing? How was it? Any info is appreciated. Thanks!!!

  Will be staying @ the MGM for the first tme in a couple weeks in a "West Wing" room (usually stay downtown @ the Nugget). Any comments on what the West Wing room has to offer? Thanks.

  About the time the MGM GRAND opened, my mother and I were in Vegas visiting my brother who worked there at a casino. Mom, age 80, was from Kansas and heard
there was an OZ exhibit and show going on and wanted to see some of it, especially "Toto". We didn't get to see the show, it was too much of a wait
for her after walking around the exhibit on the main floor. But we were able to get some nice photos of Mom and me looking at the exhibit and we treasure them. There was a nice young lady (with the hotel) who took a few of the photos for us. Everyone seemed to be having a pleasant time and were very considerate of Mom 'just looking' around. We were not able to get back to the MGM Grand but as I said, our family treasures the photos taken some time ago.

  My wife and I came to Vegas for our honeymoon and it was everything we wanted and more. Everyone was friendly and respectful, from the moment we arrived to the time we checked out. We were "bumped" up in our room selection, and the room was great,lots of space, huge bed, seperate "living room". My wife spent a day in spa at the MGM and she had absolutly nothing negative to say about it.I have stayed in other casino/hotels in Vegas before and everything about this trip was great, no perfect. When I return to Vegas this spring I plan to stay at the MGM again, and on into the future.

  Stayed 3 nights in a Bungalow Queen suite (Tues - Fri). Room was good, not as big as it looks on the website but worth upgrading to (if you plan on spending some time in your room). Casino is fine, huge but with good service. Saw only one 5-dollar blackjack table the entire time (Thurs morning), so bring a fat wallet or gamble elsewhere. Buffet was excellent at breakfast. Studio 54 was ok, but if you are looking for a better scene head to the Palms. Both the nightclub (Rain) and top floor bar (Ghost Bar) were packed with great looking women. The view from the Ghost bar is similar to the Voodoo Lounge, either is worth a visit.
Overall, MGM is an excellent value (at least during the week). I've also stayed at the Mirage, and didn't notice a huge difference, though the Mirage pool was better for adults.
