Mavens Overview: MGM Grand
The MGM Grand is large, even by Las Vegas standards. Only Caesars Palace has a wider range of room types. The pool area is large and nice. The property offers the seemingly requisite Cirque du Soleil show plus a large selection of top notch restaurants. The only area where the MGM falls short is no attached high end shopping mall, the latest Vegas trend.
Internet Buzz: MGM Grand
Plenty of comments about long walks, expect long walks, wherever you are going. Pool area receives positive buzz, except for short hours and overcrowding during prime hours. There seems to be some confusion about the level of luxury and service to expect from MGM, leading to some disappointment.
