MGM Grand

Hotel

Quote:
The hotel is a 4-star hotel, clean, comfortable, and close to different shopping centers and other different hotels and casinos. The check-in desks are on the corner of the property that is on the Strip and Tropicana Blvd. As you know, the lion is the logo of the hotel, and you should get used to the idea of seeing it everywhere you look. But then again, that is the life in this day's casinos. Checking in is very fast once you get to the desk, and it shouldn’t take too long because there are about 50 stations for that. If you come driving, the best thing to do is park on their lot. But beware of construction sites all over to avoid dust on you car, especially if you are staying several days.

Pizza by the slice is an option for fast food and this ones are good. My option was the classic deep pan with veggies and salami.

Studio Cafe

Restaurant

Quote:
While at breakfast, lunch or dinner you can play some rounds of Keno, but primarily this cafe offers good and fairly fast food. I had eggs Benedict which I love. They were prepared to my complete satisfaction.

MGM Grand Buffet

Restaurant | "Buffet bar"

Quote:
Buffet in hotels in Las Vegas are very similar to each other. This one had pork chops that were very good; also the pulled ribs and salads were extensive. Avoid eating the scrambled eggs for the other choices in the buffet are better for sure.

MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

Attraction | "MGM Casino"

Quote:
My personal favorite are the slot machines, the five rollers and multiple lines. Remember to bet the maximum to get the optimal pay and the promised prizes on the screens and the banners. Also it's basic to remember not to keep on gambling once you have won--at least for a while--or most probaly you will lose all by the end of the day or stay. My personal favorite and fun are "The Prince Frog", "the magic Unicorn" and "Risque Business."

Studio 54

Attraction

Quote:
This club is a reproduction of the club in New York. A little on the industrial deco, several tiers of fun exist with two large dance floors and two small ones. Flying dancers are here. There are also dancers on higher raises so you can watch them move and even tip them if you want to. You don't pay cover if you stay at the MGM and you can get a very fun night from 10:00PM to daybreak. They have the moon that was originally used in the actual Studio 54 which they bought at Sotheby's.

La Femme

Attraction

Quote:
The show is French with showgirls from France. It is a very good show that is made with lots of light screenings to be part of the show. It all resembles the typical Parisian cabaret. One of the most original shows I have seen in a long time. The girls were very professional and with good figures, all of them.

Tabu Lounge

Attraction

Quote:
This is a lounge where boutique presentations are made--the hostesses will wear the clothes of the boutiques and mingle with the patrons. The advertising says that you are invited, but not your inhibitions, and you could find the hostesses dancing provocatively on the stone tables. Some semi-private rooms are provided and you can reserve them or the better seats with a bottle and service. The bar is beautifully arranged, and some photographs are projected onto it, and onto the low tables at the lounge. The decoration is very modern and a little to the minimalist style.

The whole theme of this hotel and casino is Paris itself. You feel like you are walking right on the Champs Elysees under the Eiffel Tower, which is a feature of the hotel and casino from the inside and outside of the building.
