Lion Incorporated Upgrades Reservations Process

Kudos to MGM Resorts for simplifying the reservations process. They totally overlooked the fact that it *still* takes not one, but two inquiries to look up room rates on specific dates, but at least now you also see rates at similar properties on the bottom-right side of your screen. It can actually be a pretty substantial time saver when you're first scouring prices.

What I found most interesting, however, is how they group recommendations. Looking at Aria? They'll list the gamut of MGM's higher-end room rates from Mirage through Bellagio. Checking out Excalibur? The sidebar recommendations become considerably less desirable. Perhaps most interesting is looking up reservations at MGM Grand. Considering that they cater in some way to pretty much every customer that steps foot in the city, they list all the property rates in the not so super secret MGM Resorts hierarchy. Vdara and its weapon of mass destruction are shown no love. MGM Reservation App

Pro tip: if you want direct rates at nearly all the properties on the west side of the strip, just look up MGM Grand's.

Comments & Discussion:

While an improvement, I still hate the 'rates starting from' crap. Since rates vary drastically day to day (especially weekends), it is a bit useless.

why is mandalay bay more expensive than Aria and Bellagio? lol

MB is probably hosting a convention those days.
