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

.................prices are outrageous. Paid $20 for 1-1/2 hours to park while having lunch. Love the area, the art and everything else. Love Detroit, but parking is too hard to find and very expensive.

I was pretty disappointed with MGM. The slot machines were in dire need of repair. The buttons did not work properly. You could have a 50 cent bet or 1.50 the 1.00 didn't work. This was on several machines where the buttons did not work.
