MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  TV

Endangered Species : Armoire

MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  LightDo you see that thing against the wall? It's an armoire. Hotels used to use these back in the 20th century to hide television sets back before they invented flat screen technology. There's also a safe and some drawers to stash your panty hose.

To the right of the TV set was a strange "LIGHT" labeled switch which, when depressed repeatedly OR held down, did absolutely nothing. Being inquisitive I traced the wiring through the back of the armoire and up to the top to find a fluorescent light stick up top. Busted. Of the five lighting fixtures in the room, MGM Grand is rocking a whopping 60% score on the functionality meter.

Tsk tsk. Glad I didn't pay for this room or I'd have maintenance and housekeeping on the phone with an itemized list of FAIL. Let's hope the bathroom is better.

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.
