RockVegas Does MGM Grand Las Vegas
Photos and review of Rocky's Deluxe Room at the MGM Grand Las Vegas
VegasTripping reader/commenter all around Vegas freak RockVegas filed a little trip report with us, which includes a slew of photos from the inside of his 'deluxe' room at the MGMGrand. Lots of very informative stuff here, which hopefully will help all of us make better decisions when booking our next trip. On behalf of all the trippers, thank you Rocky for generously sharing your experiences and photos with us! Take it away Rock!
Here it goes: As we came in for a landing at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport - our first nighttime landing - the awesome view of strip was even better than I had imagined. From the sky, it's endless carnival midway made the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
We deplaned and headed toward baggage claim. On the way, we registered at the MGM Grand registration desk near the baggage claim area. This desk can be used for MGM Grand registration only, you cannot register at other MGM properties from there. We were able to register and get room keys before our bags hit the carousel - very fast and convenient.
Upon arrival at the hotel in our rental, valet service was fast and efficient, plus a bellman was dispatched to grab our belongings right a way. We walked across the valet and taxi lanes towards the hotel entrance, then turned back to snap a picture of the Porte cohere. It was unimpressive. It's functional, but does not cover a very large area. It looks kind of like something that you would see covering a bunch of gas pumps at just about any large gas station. It's just a little taller and has lots of extra lighting. I don't know what they were going for here-maybe a Hollywood back-lot theme.
We proceeded through trademark lion's head etched doors into the massive hotel lobby.
