RockVegas Does MGM Grand Las Vegas

Photos and review of Rocky's Deluxe Room at the MGM Grand Las Vegas

MGM Grand Las Vegas Bathroom

The bathroom was also standard issue.

MGM Grand Las Vegas Tub

The regular size tub/shower combination had the faux elegant marble back wall. The shower had excellent water pressure. I could not say the same for the toilet. It had a weak flush.

MGM Grand Amenities - Healing Pools Shampoo and Conditioner

The bathroom freebies (branded "Healing Pools") - were limited and generic. Included was shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturizer. [The card behind is an advertisement for the Christophe Salon at MGM Grand - Ed]

We were a little shocked at what a step-down the MGM deluxe room was, at least compared to THEHotel where we last stayed. The differences between THEhotel at Mandalay Bay and MGM Grand are are definitely apples and apple pie. Even so, we enjoyed our stay at the MGM Grand. The room was clean, the staff was very polite and attentive.

We would definitely consider staying there again, but we have a rule : every Vegas trip we stay someplace different.

MGM is a pretty good value as long as your not springing over $150/night for a standard 'deluxe'. Bathroom looks nicer than most of the joints out there - clean and well put together.

I'm a bit perplexed by the bed's headboard. It looks like a brick walkway, which doesn't exactly exude restful sleep to me. If anything, the room suffers from lack personality due to questionable design choices.

fyi - i think that oval shaped wall mirror is on sale at home depot if you order them by the gross.

There is no way that headboard is left over brick road from the Wizard of Oz theme it used to sport.

My oh my. I hadn't thought of that. Yikes.

FYI, MGM Grand rooms are due for a remodel in the next 18 months.

If you wanna go old school sometime, the El Cortez downtown is great.

I have always enjoyed my stays at MGM. It should be interesting to see what they do to the rooms. I have always found the decor at MGM to be very tastefully done.

As for the El Cortez We were there last Tuesday night ,for an adult beverage with Chuck, and I was suprised how much of the "dank" they had got rid of. It would likely be a decent budget choice in the future.

just needlessly backing up everyone's comments here. nice rooms, provided a nice rate. two annoyances, based on a recent visit - you are pinned way down on one end of the strip, if you care to prowl the strip. also the green lights from the inside of a room... sheesh, tone it down a bit!

I do enjoy staying at MGM. Service is good and they treat you right. As to the rooms...well the rooms in the North Tower are what I consider to be the lowest of the rooms available. Another factor, I find it much easier to get an upgrade at hotel check-in than at the airport. The $20 trick has gotten me upgraded to a bungalow suite each time I have tried it at hotel check-in. It hasn't worked at the airport.

As to the Tez, for a low rolling gambling visit, the tower rooms there as on a par with the Nug standard rooms. Anyway the casino at the Tez can be a blast for a bunch of low rollers out to have fun on a guys trip.
