If you’ve ever planned a trip to Las Vegas, then you probably know how easy it is to get overwhelmed by all the options offered throughout the city. On top of that, you have people in your travel group all looking for different things when it comes to their Las Vegas itinerary. Well, we did a deep search into what the best one-stop shop is for your next Las Vegas stay and we’ve found it: the MGM Grand. This hotel and casino have so much to offer, you may never have to leave the building!

Satisfy Your Cravings

To go about your day in Las Vegas, you’ll need to stay energized. Fuel yourself at the Grand Buffet where their menu changes between breakfast, brunch, and dinner. Not to mention, there’s a specialized menu kicking in during the weekend. Here, you’ll find a variety of delicious offerings like cocktail shrimp, BBQ pork ribs, and New York steaks fresh off the grill, even endless beer and wine!

Check out China Tang inside the MGM Grand if you’re craving something zesty. Be sure to try their Hammer Chicken, which is cracked open right in front of you as it’s served. With their menu broken up into different sections, you’ll see a spot for seafood, poultry, noodles, and even live seafood! If you’re in the mood for something light, there are six different soups to choose from, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

If no one in your party can agree on a place to eat, the MGM Grand offers a food court filled with familiar spots like Johnny Rockets, Bonanno’s New York Pizzeria, Pan Asian Express, and even Haagen Dazs. Be sure to check out the hours of operation for each specific spot, although we found that all of them are open until at least 11:00pm.

Get Rewarded for Having Fun

Have you ever been rewarded just for having fun? The MGM Grand does just that! Before stepping into any of the MGM properties, be sure to sign up for their M life Rewards program. By becoming a member, you’ll receive special offers for entertainment, dining, gaming, and even retail. There’s a total of five different member tiers you can level up to, which is great for those who often travel to Las Vegas. As soon as you sign up, you’re adopted into their Sapphire tier, which earns you express comps and other sweet digs like exclusive access to their mobile hotel check-in.

This program is completely free to sign up for, and it’s up to you as a member on how fast you move up through the tiers. There’s a wide variety of options to choose from where you can earn points by simply showing or swiping your M life rewards card. As long as you’re 21 or over, you can learn how to earn M life points here. This is one of the top loyalty programs in all of Las Vegas, so don’t forget to sign up before you start your rounds of fun throughout Sin City.

Entertainment and Attractions

With a total of nine entertainment venues, there’s definitely more than enough options for everyone to enjoy. Cirque du Soleil’s shows are amongst the most popular across all of Las Vegas. The MGM Grand is lucky enough to host KA by Cirque du Soleil. This show is jaw-dropping, from its special effects to the choreography.

Want something more interactive? CSI: The Experience is where you’ll find the action. Based off the popular show, you’ll join a team of investigators. In different rooms, you’ll identify evidence at each crime scene to potentially solve a murder case. Even if you’ve never watched the show, this attraction will have you feeling like a true crime detective.

Because the MGM Grand offers multiple venues, they have more than enough room to host nine-time Grammy award winner, Lady Gaga. Having announced her Las Vegas residency back in December of 2017, Lady Gaga offers two versions of her show at the MGM Park Theater with Enigma and the Jazz and Piano show. No matter which show you choose, you’ll be left speechless hearing her voice echo throughout the Park Theater, which is just a short walk across Las Vegas Boulevard.

Rejuvenate Yourself

There is no doubt that the adventurous city of Las Vegas will leave you drained at the end of every day. Deciding to stay at the MGM Grand Hotel is the easiest part, while choosing which room to sleep in is the most difficult. With four different room styles to choose from and well over 5,000 rooms and suites in total, any room will give you the rest you deserve.

The Stay Well Suites mirror what wellness is supposed to feel like with air purification systems, shower infusers, aromatherapy, and water purification filtrations in every one of their suites. This section of suites alone offers seven different rooms to choose from but are all designed specifically with advancements from credible wellness centers like the Cleveland Clinic.

Switching gears, the MGM Grand Hotel caters to all types of guests. The Tower Spa Suites offer the precious delicacy of blackout shades and warm white walls but can easily turn over to host the perfect party thanks to a spacious living area. These suites are designed to make you feel luxuriously comfortable.

The MGM Grand has a great way of adding their chic-style to everything they touch. You can easily snag a room that offers an incredible view of the Las Vegas Strip. Depending on your number of guests, there are five different rooms to choose from with either two queen beds or one king-sized bed.


As you plan your trip to Las Vegas, the only wrong decision you can really make is not staying at the MGM Grand. As we listed all the great things the MGM Grand has to offer its guests, we specially crowned the MGM to be the best place to visit on the Vegas Strip because we know it will not leave anyone disappointed. If Las Vegas had one casino capital to represent the city, this would be it. Of course, we couldn’t give away all the hidden gems available throughout the hotel, so check it out for yourself and book your stay at the MGM Grand to truly experience it in all its glory.
