This casino has a Vegas feel to it, more so than the other Detroit casinos. It has a large casino floor with a lot of slot choices. It was very clean and even though it is a smoking casino, it didn't smell like smoke. There is a nice selection of places to eat within the casino as well.

Easy in and easy out is the name of the game here. If you're coming into town by car from either I-75 or the Lodge, getting into the garage then leaving couldn't be easier. Once you get inside, your first stop should be the Rewards desk. Why would you play and not treat yourself to some free-play or extra prizes?... More

Celebrated with grown people. Relaxed, friendly, and excellent entertainment. New years Eve quick $15 cab ride all around downtown. MGM was the place to be. Only lost ten dollars on slots.

Big casino with lots of games. Lots of entertainment and resturants as well. I did not like that it was a smoking facility and that the non smoking section was extremely small and full of smoke. The non smoking part only had 30-40 machines. Otherwise, nice staff and modern facility.

We aren't big gamblers but stayed here a year ago. All of the finishes in the hotel were beautiful and all of the areas in the casino and hotel were really nicely decorated. Plenty of restaurant offerings and just a great place to stay.

I live near enough to Detroit that I enjoy stopping at MGM before or after events in the area, or even take a weekend to go gamble. I prefer MGM Grand as opposed to the other 2 casinos in Detroit, mostly b/c I belong to their M Life program and stay at their hotels in Vegas & Detroit often. If... More

I have stayed at the MGM Grand Detroit many times. The rooms are luxurious, and clean. ALL the restaurants are extremely good. Wolfgang Puck has two restaurants in this casino. Yum, yum, yum. I am not a smoker, I have not noticed extreme smoke. I like Mgm casinos in general. The MGM GRAND DETROIT is the most efficiently run. I... More
