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

We went to the MGM Grand a few times during a month-long stay in Detroit as we love the atmosphere and energy of the casino. Very nice! But, if you are attempting to get a cocktail, be prepared to get it yourself with a wait in line and then pay through the nose. A small glass of cheap wine and... More

Not the best casino in town, in my opinion. I do know people who love MGM Grand, but I found it to be a little flat for my liking. I know people can smoke in casinos, but MGM Grand was really extremely smokey the night I was there. My eyes were stinging and I think because of that I didn't... More

I really can't say enough about the customer service here. Don't think this is anything like the hotel in Vegas. Great downtown location. Staff went above and beyond all expectations. Opening doors, answering questions. Very clean. Very friendly. Will absolutely stay here again!

Having been to Vegas and being a non-smoker I fully appreciate the casino environment however this ranks right up there in the most smokiest casinos , I've been in. Casino is lively(read noise) very crowded on the weekend( read wait for popular tables/slots). Centre bar is happening, slots were good to me on the Wheel of Fortune and to nearby... More

Of the three this is the nicest, and most upscale casino in the D. Lots of restruants, and bars for those not gambling. The slots and table games are great.

Lots of fun if you like to gamble or simply people watch. Spent a couple of hours there and found the slots were best for me. I am not a gambler but found it entertaining. The casino was clean and they have a smoke free area which is nice.

A group of us decided to spend an hour at this casino while visiting a sick friend in Detroit. We went on a Saturday evening, about 10:00 PM. and the place was super crowded. We drove around for about a half an hour before finding a parking place rather close to the entrance. We were shocked at the enormous size... More

Cool place to go and have some fun, restaurants are nice along with the rooms but no Vegas deals on the rooms! Ouch! Something to do to spice up Michigan living.

Stopped in here while on a trip to Detroit and was quite impressed. The casino appears to be as large as anything in Vegas and is outfitted just as nicely as one you would find on the strip. I was there at 9:00 am on a saturday and it was already hopping. They were serving breakfast at the time so... More
