New York - New York, on the south end of the beautiful Las Vegas Strip, is your vacation from your vacation planning. MGM Resorts took all the best things about the Big Apple, chucked all the things that make even New Jersey cringe, and turned the city that never sleeps into the hotel and casino that never disappoints. From the shadow of the half-sized Statue of Liberty, you'll feel like you've reach a new world – one that's admittedly less "lift my lamp beside the golden door" and more "OMG look at all that chocolate!"There are a lot of things we could describe first at NY-NY, but… chocolate. Hershey's Chocolate World is like the heaven a child would create if they had magical powers for a day. Full of Hershey's candy bars, Reese's peanut butter cups and pieces, jumbo-sized Hershey's chocolate and strawberry syrup bottles, an entire wall full of Hershey's Kiss dispensers, an 800-pound replica of the Statue of Liberty carved from Hershey's Milk Chocolate and probably a bunch of blood sugar spikes and/or promises to work off the extra calories at the gym for the next month, this is one spot no chocolate lover can miss. And just inside the casino floor is the Chocolate Bar which is like the heaven that same child would make once they grew up and discovered vodka.But there's a lot more at NY-NY to appreciate than just the chocolate. The Bar at Times Square is a quaint and clever establishment featuring dueling pianos and the type of atmosphere you see in sitcoms set in New York but would probably miss out on if you actually went there. It's the perfect introduction to the Village Street Eateries set into a charming New York style neighborhood setting, as well as the nearby Gallagher's Steakhouse. Several shops like Stupidiotic, Swatch and I Love NYNY link right to the promenade on Las Vegas Boulevard. And just next to the shops lies a true NY-NY Las Vegas experience.Nine Fine Irishmen already has an appealing name – who doesn't love an Irish lad? But what really makes this emerald establishment extraordinary is the atmosphere. Like an ode to the Irish heritage of old New York, the building was actually assembled in Ireland and shipped to the United States. So there's a fun fact to reiterate to people over and over after you've had a few too many whiskeys. Featuring classic Irish beers on a tap and a food menu that'll put a swing in your shillelagh, Nine Fine Irishmen is a gorgeous bar with an inviting demeanor and a fascinating history that we don't have time to tell right now.Once you've tossed back a few pints, take a ride on the Big Apple Coaster. Maybe reverse the order on those activities if you want to minimize your chances of throwing up. Zip past hotel room windows and get a view of the Las Vegas Strip that no other roller coaster can match. It's the most fun you can have swinging around the Chrysler building without being Spider-Man.As if that weren't enough to take your breath away, Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil is perhaps the hottest show in town that doesn't involve a strip club and a lie to your wife. The show is an exploration of sexuality through performance, acrobatics, dancing, comedy and all the extreme athleticism you'd expect from Cirque du Soleil. A stream of vignettes, each character embraces their sexual nature and puts on an obviously adult oriented experience full of passion, lust and a whole lot of fun.From the skyline and the towers to the bars and the best shows, New York New York has brought to Las Vegas everything you could want from the Empire City. We may not be able to give you ocean views, but once you see the sun set over the mountains you won't miss the waves. And if you ever do feel nostalgic for that other New York, just stop into one of the bars and have the bartender make you mean Manhattan.

Great hotel, great location
PostedMay 21, 2013
NY NY didn't disappoint. It was great to have pool and gym access included in the resort fee and not have to pay extra just for those things like some of the "other" hotels. Don't expect to be blown away by the pool scene but it was nice nonetheless. Incredibly easy access to MGM Grand, Excallibur and Tropicana and a super easy (free!) tram to Mandalay bay and Luxor. Within EASY walking distance even to the Bellagio. NYNY theme carried very well throughout, it was a great atmosphere! Gonna go back soon

How to get room away from Rollercoaster.

Hello,. I would like to stay at your hotel, but I'm a lite sleeper. I do not
care if my room is facing the strip. I am a single mail. I'll just need a king or quen bed. How can I get a room away from the rollercoaster.

THank-you
The roller coaster wraps all the way around the hotel. Your best bet is to get on a high floor. I would recommend floor 25 and above and you will have no problems.
