|Location:||Brooklyn, New York, US|
Vegas Fave 10 (The Hard Way)
|1:||the reemergence of downtown as a viable destination|
|5:||the casino smell (cigs, booze, tears, and carpet shampoo)|
|9:||absurdly large slot machines|
|10:||the peppermill / fireside lounge|
i don't care how old it is or that it takes me 10 mins to walk from one area to another (...walking never fucking killed anybody, and i'm used to it living in NYC)---this is one of the best all-around resorts in town. MGM FTW.
too good for words.
So what if it's off strip? Ask for a room in the fantasy tower and prepare to relax. The bathrooms are massive. The beds are very comfortable. Room service is affordable (!). Casino is big, but feels cozy. Design is comfortable. And the tables are lucky.
Best mix of the high and the low of Las Vegas. Great energy, great design, and ALWAYS a good time.
great place to play. not the best for food. looking forward to the renovations.
the rooms are nice enough. bad vibes in the casino. next time i'm in vegas i must remember to steal an ashtray.
a little too hoity-toity for me, but i can't discount the opulence.
never stayed here, but the casino was fun last time i was there. even got one of them silver strike coins from the pleasure pit. natch.
lost points for the lack of buffet and the piddly pool. but a definite must downtown. rooms were pretty okay with old a/c units (mine looked like it was about to fall out of the wall onto passersby below), but comfortable. bathrooms could have been better.
the tables are lucky, the buffet is massive, and penn and teller play there. a recent 6-night stay for $100 made me a huge proponent of the hotel and pool. though the 6-5 blackjack and tight slots will keep me from playing there ever again.
the pool was nice. so was the tower premier suite upgrade at check-in. however the room somehow still felt cramped. almost too much marble. carrot top was actually funny. food was lame. gambling was awful.
getting followed to my room by a particularly unappealing working girl at 4am was not fun. neither was really anything else about this place. 2 points for location.
