Beautifully appointed resort whose decor blends with the character of the area. Our room overlooked a vast expanse of forest. The casino as well as hallways had a fresh, piney scent. The resort as well as the room was spotless. Food was delicious. We ate at the deli and the sandwiches are huge and come with a side of chopped... More

I was recently here for the Duran Duran concert and this time I stayed at the MGM Grand for the night. In the same week, I just got back from Atlantic City, NJ and was a difference in hotels! The MGM grand is awesome! This is the best looking room I have been in a long time! I wish I... More

We stayed on the ninth floor, which is a non smoking floor. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very nice and helpful. They have free parking and free valet parking (but you should tip them). We would love to go back again and utilize more of the facilities; pool, restaurant. We had a birthday celebration at the Paragon... More

Definitely average. Probably not overpriced but it is on the expensive side of affordable. Great first visual impression but agree with others that front desk is woefully understaffed. Rooms are nice and we didn't have anything to complain about overall and still there was something that just didn't add up. Agree with many that the mgm casino is the smallest... More

08/24/12 Had a lovely, short 2-night stay here. The hotel is beautiful with beautiful scenery and the outdoor pool was over the top. Plenty of lounge chairs, room to move around and pool-side beverage/lunch service. That being said, the down side was that there were extremely limited food and sundry (snacks) options at the hotel. What food options that were... More

Beautiful scenery and a relaxing location. The hotel is beautiful inside and out but seemed somewhat understaffed. The check-in desk had only two people on it and we were a business group of over 200 checking that day which left a long line of people standing. Several of the restaurants also had people leave after being seated because no one... More

Went on a short vacation with the family to CT. One night we decided to stay at Foxwoods. We are not really gamblers but but it is fun to play a little. My wife and myself with my 2 children one 14 and one 23. We actually lost more money in the arcade with my youngest. The hotel is very... More

We were lucky enough to stay in this hotel due to a friend knowing a friend and getting an exceptional rate. This hotel is amazing. Our room was state of the art. One whole wall is made of glass so you look out upon beautiful green trees and rolling hills as far as your eyes can see! Great outdoor area... More

We got 4 rooms this time because our son's best friend was coming home from Afghanistan and we wanted to celebrate his home coming and be able to use the pool at MGM . I booked the max 3 rooms with my dreamcard and needed a 4th. When I called to get the 4th room I was a bit surprised... More
