MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  Sink

The Bathroom

The bathroom at MGM Grand is quite spacious for a standard room. Lots of room for two people to navigate around during morning primping or late night pimping. The sinks feature a mix of brass and chrome plated fixtures (to bridge the gap of a mix and match history?) set atop a marble counter top. There were numerous towels at the ready, a hair dryer and plenty of amenities.

MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  Healingpool

Healing Pools Amenities

MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel Room Review -  TrashMGM Grand's Healing Pool amenities are custom designed by MGM Grand and feature shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, facial soap, body bar and a box with some other goodies in it (for whatever reason I forgot to confiscate this evidence for further inspection).

Speaking of things I forgot to steal from the hotel room, beneath the counter top is a monogramed MGM Grand trash can which would've made a great pool side ice chest, flower pot, fish guts bucket, or a great party hat. Next time!

One other note about the amenities, the process of designing these is quite interesting as I learned from a discussion I had with Treasure Island's VP of Hotel Operations Catherine Seifert (who rules.) Look for a feature on this and some other details about hotel room design process in a future feature article.

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.
