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

I had a great stay at MGM. The few hiccups I did experience were overshadowed by the excellent service. The room was lovely; I had the Luxury King room, the cheapest and smallest. The TV seemed to be a little limited on channels but I was able to watch what I wanted. Plus there was a TV in the BATHROOM... More

The first impression was very positive and it reminds me about the MGM in Vegas, slightly smaller though. We have a kings size room on the 8 floor, I wanted higher but everything was full, unfortunately. The view over down town Detroit is very nice and the room size is good. I love the shower and it's a nice feature... More

Once you get used to the place, you have many new machines to choose from. This can become addictive as there are many, many machines, or, you have the tables. They have a wonderful bar where you can sit and enjoy the sports taking placee.

How frustrating can it be when your trying to unwind after a day on the road and your TV goes out. I can understand day one when the storm rolled through... satellite service.

This was my first trip the MGM Grand. I am reviewing the casino only. MGM Grand.....I expected bright lights, a beautiful atmosphere, a grand gaming experience. Wrong. I could not have been more disappointed. The layout of the casino was horrible, the smoke was overwhelming, the atmosphere was not exciting at all and the property looked in need of renovation.....

My wife & I decided to go away for the weekend and thought we'd check out some Detroit attractions. I thought this hotel would be fun but I have to say it's definitely not worth the money. I got the king suite which had some cool features like automatic blinds and a TV in the living room, bedroom, and kitchen.... More

The MGM Grand Casino in MI is so much fun. Me and my husband won big there along with 6 of my family members. We had everyone chanting YOLO at the Craps table. The dealers are so nice and helpful. We received 2 free buffet tickets worth $45 each for drawing a crowd. The food was amazing did not taste... More

Sadly the casino seems to be a reflection of the times in the local area. The casino is run down, the machines dated and the smoking is just outrageous. There are also spots in the casino that are frigid as the air system blows and does not seem very well balanced. Who wants to freeze when they're losing money.
