NileGuide Expert tip:
Take advantage of the "you are here" maps to find your way in this huge hotel casino.
The MGM Grand Hotel is one of the largest hotels in the world. "Grand" is the right word for this hotel casino, which holds thousands of rooms that range from fairly basic (both in design and price) to elaborate suites.
The MGM is located right on the Strip, and it also has its own Monorail stop. Two pedestrian walkways in front of the MGM offer easy access to the other hotels in the immediate vicinity (New York-New York, Excalibur, and Tropicana).
Rooms come with double pillow-top mattresses, large bathrooms, and sitting areas even in the standard rooms. The top two floors of the hotel are The Skylofts, exclusive accommodations that come with a butler. Signature, also part of the MGM, is a non-smoking, non-gaming, all-suites complex connected to the main hotel. The variety of rooms gives guests the chance to make sure they have a room that is right for them. An $18.00 a day resort fee does apply to cover high speed internet, daily newspaper, and other extras.
Over twelve restaurants are on site. For entertainment, MGM has a Cirque du Soliel show, Ka, and an adult revue, Crazy Horse Paris. The MGM Grand Garden Arena hosts large concerts and shows. Studio 54 (reincarnated from its days in New York) and Tabu make up the nightclub/bar scene. The pool complex is like a water park—five pools are available—and the chic adult day club, Wet Republic, gives grown-ups a place to enjoy the water.
