MGM Grand Hotel & Casino

3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89109, USA

A regal, bronze rendering of the roaring MGM lion mascot fronts the four emerald-green, fortresslike towers of the MGM Grand, one of the largest hotels in the world. There are five 30-story towers with rooms in nine different varieties. Standard accommodations are modern. Further up the line, the various types of suites are more stylish and striking, and offer many fun perks. The best of the bunch include the 650-square-foot Bungalow suites, which are fitted with black-and-white Italian-marble bathrooms; the corner Premiere suites, which come with four-person dining areas and two TVs; and the two-story Terrace suites, which have 14-foot vaulted ceilings. At the very high end, the super-posh Skylofts at MGM Grand occupy the hotel's top two floors, and include airport transfers, separate check-in, butler service, Bang & Olufsen stereos, Sony HDTVs, and preferred seating at top restaurants and KÀ (the Cirque du Soleil show). There also are 29 villas within the Mansion at MGM Grand, the resort's high-roller palace. Overall, few resorts in the world have a bigger pool and sunbathing area.
