“Sadly to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Unfortunately, our weekend getaways at MGM Grand Hotel, Detroit, have become more and more controversial and less enjoyable than we had experienced earlier in the year. There has been a gradual decline in the cleanliness of rooms. One floor we refuse to stay on. Someone needs to take charge; supply housekeeping with everything needed to clean the rooms appropriately; room inspections are obviously not done correctly. If they were, the dingy bedspreads on worn out beds; dirty carpet (some smelly), dusty and smeared glass table tops, dirty tv remotes (some do not work), old (white chalk old) chocolate bars & out of date juice in Mini Bar would not be an issue. We have stayed in luxury queen room, lately staying in luxury & executive corner suites which, in our opinion, are in the worst condition. It is a shame that this has been our experience lately. Hopefully this review will be read and taken seriously by someone who has the courage and fortitude to change things at the hotel.

We visit the M life Hotels on Las Vegas annually so will compare to those. Hotel is first rate. Rooms have pillow top beds. All are no smoking. What is also nice is the living room as you enter the hotel after checkin. Complete with comfortable sofas, a very modern full length fire place and a free coffee machine.

Our room was comped so can't tell you the price. The bathroom was ultra modern with glassed walk in shower with 2 heads one in the wall and one in the ceiling.

In all the room was very comfortable and considering we were the first room off the elevators very very quiet!

There are 14 floors. Not sure who
gets to stay in the penthouse.

Enjoyed the two nights we stayed.

Beautiful hotel and casino, comfortable rooms and a warm and inviting staff. Better location than Motor City and I prefer the casino to Greek Town. In the end the friendliness of the staff really set MGM apart.

Being gold status M Life members we asked for our free upgrade and got a corner suite. The front desk looked at our old M Life cards, mine is still Sapphire and my husband's is Pearl because he had lost his after our first trip to Vegas and told us we couldn't get an upgrade with those cards. I told her to just run our numbers, then it changed to Welcome Mr. and Mrs. Kookie to MGM Grand we have a corner suite available will that suit you? lol The room was huge 2 bathrooms, 3 TV's and a phone at every turn. Wet bar with a beautiful backdrop that if the light was on in the bathroom behind it, looked like it was glowing. The main bathroom has double sinks, a jet tub and a shower with 5 shower heads. The pool are is wonderful, they pump in some kind of fragrance so you can't smell the clorine. The locker rooms are a fantasy, they have soft fluffy robes, private shower stalls and in a different room a round table with beautiful flowers with every kind of lotion, deoderant or foo foo stuff that you need. There is a hot tub and steam room. In a lounge area are pitchers of iced tea and lemonaid and a bowl full of fruit and newspapers to read. I came out of there feeling like a celebrity. The casino was nice, Taps was ok. We had a server/bartender that was realy attentive, but breakfast the next day was a little slow. Vallet staff was Courteous and Friendly. We will be returning!!

The room was great but I think that more then one bar soap should be left in the bathroom.
I also feel when you tell the host that you are celebrating a wedding anniversary something special should be added to the room.

We had the best time here. Room was clean and huge. Dinner at Wolfgang Puck was amazing!!! Best steak and ribeye ever. We attended a concert in Detroit this was the purpose of our stay so we didn't play any of the slots and tables but we should have we were just too busy with everything else. We will return it was a pretty goodtime everyone was friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: If you have an iPhone 5 you'll need to bring an adapter for the docking station so you can dock...

We had a great time. I have previously been a casino worker so I know what it takes to work, etc. in a casino so I appreciate a good job when it happens. I do not have any other advice.
Keep up the good work with all your employees.





Room Tip: None given as we were on a comp stay.
