The ironic setting for the MGM Grand (a former IRS building) is only temporary; a permanent casino is to be built along the riverfront.

My husband and I have stayed at the hotel several times. The hotel gives discounts to card members so reliable losers can come for a few days and fill their coffers. The hotel is... read more

So you walk in the hotel: the lobby is beautiful, your excited too be there and can't wait to hit the tables. When you get to your room you realize this place was really nice when it was new, now it's just old and sad. In the casino the table minimums are 25 bucks. So much for playing just for... More

My husband and I have stayed at the hotel several times. The hotel gives discounts to card members so reliable losers can come for a few days and fill their coffers. The hotel is very nice and the restaurants are good so I suppose management feels they are justified in setting the machines "on take". If you are looking for... More

My husband and I went to MGM Grand Casino last night at approximately 11:06 pm after Jimmy Buffet Concert. He went to black jack table I found a slot machine to sit at. I put my players club card in and my ticket. A few seconds after I started playing a lady came screaming at me that I was playing... More

Of the three (3) casinos in the Detroit area, MGM Grand gets my vote for the best. There are many restaurants, bars and entertainment selections on the premises. The casino is constantly being updated and there are non-smoking areas for players who don't smoke.

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with our two kids. Two cribs were put in the room upon request. Living room was ok, with a couch that was itchy due to the fabric, and a table with four chairs to eat at. Bed and pillows were terrible and both me and my husband left with pain in our necks... More

Went at 3 p.m. on a Sunday and it was just lovely! Not crowded or smoky, plenty of available slot machines, and after 3 hours I left down about $10 - can't beat that for a day of slots! The bathrooms were not the cleanest although they were modern looking. I have been in the evening when it's much more... More

My sweetie and I prefer here over the other two casinos for a couple reasons. First, the comps can be used here or in any other MGM resort, like in Vegas. Second, we get the most play here. We have been to the other two casinos in Detroit, but we do best here. We do agree the buffet could be... More

I'm not really a casino person, but I liked it a lot. It has a variety of machines and different table games. The service there is good and all the dealers were really nice. Of you like casinos, you'll probably like it :)

I stopped by in the morning as I had a couple of hours to kill before a business meeting and there is a Starbucks located in the back of the casino. As it was morning, the crowds were thin but the casino certainly didn't feel empty. The staff was friendly and although there are smoke free sections of the casino,... More
