MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  Couch

Gossamer Hump Couch

The 'living area' has a couch with a hump on one end, which reminds me of Gossamer from the Bugs Bunny cartoons (the big orange thing who wears tennis shoes). There are two straps on the far end which attach a pillow to the hump end, it's not there because I moved it. The marble top coffee table is rounded to avoid those 4am shin scrapes. I doubt I'm the only one who thinks that having a couch blocking access to the window stinks... not that staring at Hooters is an enthralling proposition.

MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  Desk

The Desk

The desk featured a number of surprises, the first being an MGM Grand monogramed pleather ice bucket. Additionally there was a resort guide, wired and wifi internet access, property map and two drinking glasses.

MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  HoseThe other surprise was finding two different colored panty hose (panty hoses? hosi? hosiery?), crumbled into a ball inside the desk drawer. As far as I know, this "amenity" wasn't intentionally placed there by MGM Grand on behalf of panty hose wearing or fetishist guests, of which I am neither.

There's a really good chance that I never would've found these hadn't Mrs. Mo opened up the drawer for me while shooting the video walkthrough. We both gasped quite loudly when they made their guest appearance.

Times like these make me want to drive out to wherever it is the housekeeper in charge of this room lives, whip out my room key and start tapping on their front door exclaiming "housekeeping! TAP TAP TAP... housekeeping!!!". Next time. As for the hose, I let chance or whomever got the room next decide their fate.

The only room I've ever stayed in at MGM was a bungalow suite and that thing was pretty pimp. The bathroom in it was huge.
You're room didn't look to bad, but the lamps not working would've made me mad. Nothing like sitting in a dark room. They're in need of a re-vamp though and the permanent marker on the wall outside was just tacky.

Coupla years ago me and the significant other stayed in a West Wing room, and WOW!! Best bed I've been on, shower big enuff for two (or three, or four) big flat screen tv, not an armoire in site and really clean, all the time. The only problem was the hallway, it felt like a mile from our room (Strip side) to the elevators. Plus you had to go thru the tile, then the regular carpet then the hallway got dark, mirrored and kinda creepy. I'd stay there again tho, great service and a great pool too!!!

Same type of problems for me last trip. Stayed in a West wing room, with 2 out of 4 lights not working. In addition, the remote control for the TV had bad batteries, which I just stole the batteries from the bathroom remote. Someone still needs to tell me what the fascination is with a tv in your bathroom mirror. But anyway, also found socks in the dresser drawer, maybe there are some footware elves that steal from tourists and redeposit them after the maids are gone for the day.

MGM has some of the most comfortable beds on the strip.

I have to disagree with you guys on this aspect of the review. I loved the beds so much I actually called down & tried to find out exactly what mattress they use.

In retrospect now as I stumbled across this review. I have to add, I hold every bed in Vegas up to the awesomeness of the West Wing bed.
