We stayed at the Grand Sierra, along with another couple for 4 nights in Summit rooms. This was our first stay at the property. Our room was comped, but we paid the $30/night upgrade fee to the Summit - that plus the $11/day resort fee + taxes made each night just under $50. Absolutely worth ever single penny! (The Summit rooms that were not comped for the other couple were in the neighborhood of $80/night inclusive & still worth the price.
Pluses: nicely decorated, clean, had a FRIDGE and MICROWAVE, & plenty of electrical outlets for phones, laptops, etc. The bath amenities also included hair conditioner, which seems to have been dropped from many other hotels at this point. (If you are someone that needs it, you will appreciate knowing that.)
Needs Improvement: The coffee maker made horrible coffee (like tan-colored water). Bring your own coffee pot, or bring high quality instant packs and use the microwave instead.
Other notes about the rooms: No tub, just a very nice huge shower. Also, no table w/chair(s) to sit & eat a quick breakfast, although there is a desk & chair, and a couch. There is plenty of room for a table (hint hint, GS), as the rooms are large.
Staff and other property amenities: We had good service from every staff member we encountered, and outstanding service from several. The front desk and phone reservations systems were patient with our complicated 4-linked-separate reservations, and did not make any mistakes. Housekeeping provided us with bathrobes at our request, and of course extra towels, etc as needed.
Our party utilized: Valet, bell-staff services (fast!), the fitness center, aqua-golf (fun), the bowling center (inexpensive, but a little too much oil everywhere), the poker room, and the Charlie Palmer steakhouse. All met or exceeded standards.
We will absolutely stay there again.
