I just got an offer from the MGM Grand for $68 a night from May 26-June 8, 2008. Just call them at 800-929-1111 or go to their website and give them code MKT124. Even though I usually stay at either the Wynn or the Bellagio when I go to Vegas, sometimes a deal is so good that it is worth changing from my usual places and try out some unusual things. The MGM Grand is a resort that is big enough to please everyone, with shopping, restaurants and nightclubs for every taste from young to mature audiences. A nice perk is that the Las Vegas monorail has a stop at the back of the hotel, so it is literally steps away from the other end of the strip in mere minutes.
The hotel's latest addition, the Wet Republic is a pool concept that has to be seen, with over 53,000 square feet, the only saltwater pools in Vegas, six waterfalls, private cabanas, and live entertainment galore. This is an adult, hip, luxurious destination in and of itself.
Another unusual thing here at the MGM Grand is that there are also people at the various entrances who will ask if you have time to go to a screening of a new TV pilot show on the property. It's fun to see and give your opinion on shows before they air on TV. If you don't get asked and you want to go, ask someone on the property where to go to see a screening and they'll direct you to the office. It takes a little time but what is an hour when you're having fun?
The MGM Grand is the next best thing to being in Hollywood (some might say it's better).
