The MGM Grand is just that grand! Everywhere you look information is pouring into your brain and you cannot quite figure out what’s going on.

What you might not like at the MGM Grand Las Vegas:

You might just hate that everything you need is found under one roof because you are tempted to not leave the resort. The casino feels crowded and confusing and takes sometime to navigate. The chances that you can get to your room easily after you check-in are close to slim. There is a lot of walking involved when you stay at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. However, because of that your options are endless.

My suggestion:

The price of the rooms at the MGM Grand Las Vegas makes this resort very appealing especially since you’re across the street from NY/NY and the Excalibur. Make sure to have a meal at one of the great restaurants and don't forget to walk outside to one of the best intersections in Las Vegas. If you have the chance, seriously consider a meal at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, you will not be disappointed.

Another thing you might try is the Monorail. There is a station at the MGM Grand and you can get up and down the strip with a day pass for less than the cost of a Taxi.
