Was actually thinking about returning to MGM, then I remembered I never got around to write a review. My first Vegas Experience was a very remarkable one, thanks to MGM. Check in was a breeze despite the long lines, which is expectant because it is such a BIG hotel.
The front desk and concierge staff are all professional. We had a double bed suite, beautiful view of the entire strip, the room was super comfortable, neat, clean and very spacious. The bathroom was well equipped with the best lighting for make up.
Housekeeping service is always one of my biggest issues when vacationing. However, MGM was ON POINT! The moment we stepped out of our room, housekeeping stepped in. That was a 10 pointer.
Although the WiFi was terrible in the room, once in the main lobby it worked fine. Wasn't a big deal because once in Vegas, phones are the least.There were 2 events hosted at MGM during our stay, one was a Bon Jovi concert and Lakers Basketball game, neither held my interest. I just enjoyed seeing the Basketball players.
The location of MGM was perfect, it's located at the end of the strip. The casino at MGM was HUGE, clean and always packed. There is actually no need to come out of the building, everything is there. There's a mall underground. A huge club, nice buffets, every fast food joints you can think of is in MGM, it's like a mini city!
Not a gambler, so there isn't much I can say on that part. The easiest exit to the strip was through the large casino, A LOT of walking and short cuts, if you're a quick learner, you'll figure it out in no time.
Once on the strip, you'll be mesmerized by the atmosphere. Directly across the street is the New York hotel, the roller coasters were fun to watch while walking the strip. Shopping was to die for at Fashion Mall, located across from the Wynn Hotel. There are so many other nice hotels on the strip, but MGM stole my heart!
Quick tip, like I said, the strip is A LOT OF WALKING!.. take full advantage of the Duece bus transportation, it's roughly $20 for 3 days, when you are tired of walking, you can hop on and hop off at any given time by simply swiping your bus pass.
For first timers to Vegas, I suggest you do the "Big Bus Las VegasTour" at night, where you can see the glitz and glam of the strip (carry a sweater and your camera and get ready to be amazed).
To conclude, I will most definitely be back. We had dinner at Top of World. Walked. Drank. Laughed. Shopped and just enjoyed being in "Viva Las Vegas".
