There is no chance MGM Grand, which dominates the northeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue (the busiest intersection on the Strip), will ever become dated. In fact, the iconic resort has completed a glamorous makeover. All of the rooms have been remodeled and several of the property's entertainment, dining and nightlife experiences are brand new. Today, as in the past, guests can always count on unparalleled entertainment at the resort. First and foremost, the MGM Grand is an entertainment destination. Its 16,000-seat Grand Garden Arena hosts concerts by the world's top artists, championship boxing matches, award shows and so much more. Magician David Copperfield is a regular headliner in the more intimate Hollywood Theatre -- and he isn't disappearing any time soon. In addition to “the greatest illusionist of our time,” the venue hosts an assortment of talented musicians and comedians.MGM Grand is also home to the Cirque du Soleil production "KÀ." This show is a visual feast. It's comprised of acrobatic feats and often compared to a martial arts movie -- just in theater format. And Brad Garrett's Comedy Club hosts an array of nationally known comedians who will have you doubled over in fits of laughter. An 8,500-square-foot performance theater featuring Beacher's Madhouse pushes the boundaries of entertainment and fantasy. It offers a late-evening show/club atmosphere with a circus-like energy.With more than 20 restaurants, you can have a taste of the finest cuisine from around the world at MGM Grand. Many acclaimed international chefs helm one-of-a-kind dining experiences here.Joël Robuchon is the namesake restaurant of the legendary chef who has received numerous awards. He is the first and only three-star "Michelin Guide" winner in Las Vegas. His French cuisine creations are like works of art. Guests can choose to indulge in a tasting menu or order à la carte in either the elegant main room or a garden-designed dining room. Next door, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a similarly divine menu, but in a less formal atmosphere.  At Craftsteak, Tom Colicchio has the preparation of steaks, chops and seafood down to a science. Michael Mina Pub 1842 provides a distinctive take on classic pub fare along with an extensive selection of beers and cocktails. You can indulge in the richness of Creole cuisine at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House. Another imaginative menu -- with items like his famous wood-fired pizzas as well as pastas, grilled fish and succulent meat -- is available in the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. The Morton Group's restaurant Crush has a cosmopolitan shared-plate menu with selections inspired by traditional favorites as well as standouts from regions around the world. And then there's Pearl, The Grand Wok and Sushi Bar, Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, Shibuya...and the list of fabulous restaurants goes on and on. Casual meals are available too at MGM Grand. The jungle-themed Rainforest Café provides a wild time for all ages, thanks to animatronic critters. Hecho en Vegas prepares traditional Sonoran cuisine as well as popular Mexican favorites. For an inexpensive breakfast, lunch or dinner, head to the MGM Grand Buffet, which dishes up more than 30 different entrées, pastas, casseroles and fresh veggies. Avenue Café is another option with plenty of choices for breakfast and lunch.In addition, quick bites are available at the MGM Grand Food Court, Project Pie and three sprawling Starbucks. Or grab a quick treat at Blizz Frozen Yogurt, Corner Cakes and the decadent Sugar Factory retail store.For relaxation, there are five outdoor swimming pools in the 6.6-acre Grand Pool Complex, complete with a 1,000-foot river and waterfalls. And summertime always brings steamy fun, courtesy of Wet Republic. The chic ultra pool provides guests with a nightlife-like atmosphere featuring private bungalows, cocktail service and DJ-spun music.Speaking of nightlife, there are virtually a million places to drink, dance and party. MGM Grand's Lobby Bar and center bar, called Centrifuge, are great spots for meeting up with friends and family. Tap Sports Bar has more than 48 draft beers and a large selection of handcrafted bottled beers -- plus, you can eat American food favorites for lunch and dinner, peruse sports memorabilia and watch games on 60-inch HD TVs. And Hakkasan Las Vegas, an 80,000 square-foot club with a Cantonese-themed restaurant boasts spectacular indoor and outdoor views of the Strip, a huge dance floor with a suspended performance area, the Ling Ling Lounge, the Ling Ling Club and other unique nightlife experiences.Among MGM Grand's other offerings are a comprehensive casino floor, the Grand Spa (try The Dreaming Ritual, its two-hour signature treatment that includes Australian Aboriginal massage techniques and other forms of all-over pampering), Cristophe Salon and a huge fitness center.If you love the TV show "CSI," don't miss CSI: The Experience. It lets you jump into the role of a crime scene investigator and piece together evidence in order to solve one of three mysteries. Plus, MGM Grand houses the research center CBS Television City, where you can be among the first to give feedback about TV pilots, video games and consumer products.Those in the mood to shop can browse through the stores along The District in the main thoroughfare, explore The Underground on the lower level of the main lobby or check out a variety of souvenir outlets located throughout the premises.The race and sports book at MGM Grand is the place to catch your favorite sporting event. Brimming with energy and excitement, it features 17 betting counters, comfortable seating, a bar and the adjacent Stage Deli. Video walls and high-tech media are spread throughout the room and exclusive "skyboxes" add to the experience. Also visit the high-end gaming lounge called Whiskey Down. In addition to blackjack and video poker, it has a 64-seat bar serving a fine collection of brown spirits (American, Canadian, Irish and Scotch whiskies).Accommodations at MGM Grand are as varied as the rest of the property's offerings, ranging in size and price. As mentioned above, the resort recently completed a $160 million remodeling project that included 3,570 guest rooms and 642 suites in the hotel’s main tower. The redesign utilized a warm color palette with contemporary furnishings. It will also incorporated environmentally responsible elements such as LED lighting, improved thermostats, solar shades, upgraded faucets and showers, and bath amenities that are 100 percent biodegradable. Plus, there is now a "Stay Well" collection of 42 rooms, which are loaded with amenities designed to promote better health and combat jet lag.MGM Grand is weaving a modern vision while respecting its entertainment roots. It continues to elevate itself as a tour de force of hospitality, ambiance and design in Las Vegas. And visitors of all walks of life are toasting the resort's latest accomplishments while eagerly anticipating all the new entertainment, dining and nightlife experiences yet to come.-- By Renée LiButti

Stayed here last month it was nice.
PostedJuly 26, 2014
Loved the pool! It was a nice stay. Would stay again. But be careful do not move anything in the refrigerator they stock, or put anything in it. They will charge you. This used to be an old practice by hotels it's back.

Calling all lovers of the Empire City! New York-New York, which is located near the southern end of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, is the perfect place to stay if you enjoy Big Apple dreamin'. Reserving a room puts you right in the heart of all the action at one of Sin City's busiest four corners.The sprawling resort is best known for its New York City theme. You'll discover a half-size replica of the Statue of Liberty welcoming you to the hotel and can even stroll alongside a 300-foot-long re-creation of the Brooklyn Bridge. Crave the ethnic flavor of Chinatown and Little Italy? Yearn for the energy of Times Square? Fancy the amusement of Coney Island? They're all right here as well.The façade at New York-New York is based on Manhattan's skyline. Twelve renowned skyscrapers have been emulated at about one-third of their actual size. They house the resort's 2,024 comfortable rooms and suites. This means you can choose to stay in the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building or whatever other super tower you adore.As a nod to the Big Apple's vibrant pedestrian-oriented neighborhoods, the promenade in front of the hotel has been widened and transformed into an outdoor plaza. A stage is often tucked into one end of the Brooklyn Bridge where you'll find bands and other forms of live entertainment. In addition to patios at Starbucks and Nine Fine Irishmen, several shops -- like Stupidiotic, Swatch and I Love NYNY -- are accessible from entrances on Las Vegas Boulevard and from within New York-New York. The interactive attraction Hershey's Chocolate World is also here. It has an entrance with a towering Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar and an 18-foot Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Guests can taste new treats, personalize sweet gifts and create keepsake photos. The last elements of the promenade, Tom's Urban and Shake Shake, will debut in December 2014.MGM Resorts has also begun construction on an 8-acre dining and entertainment district called The Park in the street between New York-New York and Monte Carlo. The Park will not only house casual eateries and bars (including Bruxie, Sake Rok, Beer Garden, Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar, a Robert Mondavi Jr. wine experience and more), but it will also connect to a new 20,000-seat arena being developed in partnership with AEG. Elements of The Park will begin to appear at the end of 2014 and throughout 2015, with the arena scheduled to open in 2016.New York City is known for its entertainment scene -- and New York-New York has followed suit. Although far from Broadway, the Cirque du Soleil production of "Zumanity" is a powerful and provocative theatrical display. Unlike the troupe's typical avant-garde circus performances, this one will take you into an adults-only world where you'll have to leave your inhibitions behind.Just like the "city that never sleeps," New York-New York is home to an array of nightlife venues that keep going until the wee hours. You can experience a live version of the saloon that was featured in its own movie at Coyote Ugly. Nine Fine Irishmen, an authentic Irish pub imported directly from the Emerald Isle, has bragging rights to being the most congenial gathering spot. There's just no better place in Las Vegas to grab a pint of Guinness and soak up the "craic" (i.e., the Celtic word for fun and good conversation).Other spots in New York-New York also let the good times roll. Over at The Bar at Times Square, you can listen to a boisterous performance by dueling pianos.Like New York City, a bounty of culinary delights are located here. Cut into a succulent steak at Gallagher's Steakhouse, a New York City landmark since 1927. Gonzalez y Gonzalez offers south-of-the-border favorites in a rendition of another beloved NYC restaurant. Chin Chin Café serves Chinese food and sushi in a trendy atmosphere. For casual meals, you can always grab a bite at one of the Village Eateries, the 24-hour café America or, of course, Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs.In addition, the resort offers plenty of fun stuff for the young -- and young at heart. A Coney Island-themed emporium is filled with carnival and arcade games. This is also where you can hop on the nerve-wracking Big Apple Coaster that winds through the property's pseudo-skyline.Rounding out the amenities is a spacious casino, a well-equipped fitness center and a pool with cabanas and hot tubs. The Spa at New York-New York offers some quirky yet soothing treatments, such as the Environmental Escape (a super-charged skin cocktail) and the Traffic Stopper (a facial infused with vitamins and oxygen).Although far from the real Wall Street and Central Park, a visit to New York-New York is a singular sensation -- and one that puts you in the pulse of two of America's greatest cities.-- By Renée LiButti

OK hotel, maid took my personal shampoo then left me not even any hotel shampoo.
PostedJuly 26, 2014
First time at NY, NY hotel just OK it was close to the pet expo we went to. No extra anything. But most Vegas hotels they tell me are this way now, so be prepared bring your own extras. ( coffee, shampoos, they have ice but we never got a bag to go into the ice bucket) . Probably will not go back.

Originally built to resemble a riverboat -- minus the river! -- Harrah's Las Vegas is anchored in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.This lively resort opened as the Holiday Inn Casino in 1973. Having nurtured that fun-lovin' spirit over the years, Harrah's boasts a rambunctious, reckless energy that is sure to win over the young and young-at-heart.The resort is known as the home of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill. Named for one of the country superstar's hit singles, this place is full of rollicking good times with lots to drink, live music, dancing and big portions of home-style food – like the fried bologna sandwich.Speaking of food, you'll find fresh seafood at the Oyster Bar at Harrah's. It specializes in a variety of appetizers, oysters, fish tacos and grilled lobster tail. And KGB: Kerry's Gourmet Burgers features the culinary genius of Kerry Simon in a funky atmosphere suggestive of Russia. Plus, Ruth's Chris Steak House has unparalleled views of the Strip and signature cuts of USDA Prime steak, broiled in an 1,800-degree oven.Want a quick bite? Flavors, The Buffet serves breakfast, lunch and dinner via a scrumptious array of cooking stations -- and it has a never-ending supply of crab legs! The 24-hour Fulton Street Food Hall also offers a variety of options -- ranging from indulgent bakery-fresh pastries to homemade soups, artisanal sandwiches, made-to-order sushi and seven different types of pizzas. And you can always grab a cool and delicious ice cream concoction at Icepan.Entertainment is always on the menu at Harrah's as well. Since 2000, magician Mac King has been mystifying and cracking up audiences of all ages in the afternoons. If you'd prefer to be keeled over in laughter in the evenings, get tickets to the Improv Comedy Club or "Defending the Caveman," a hilarious one-man play that originated on Broadway. And "Million Dollar Quartet," the hit Broadway musical, tells about how four rock 'n' roll pioneers (Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley) came together one magical night.In addition, music and drinks can be found at several of the resort's bars. Creative cocktails are poured by the world's top flair bartenders at the outdoor Carnaval Court. Indoors you'll discover the Piano Bar, which showcases TJ's Karaoke Party and the Twins Dueling Pianos.Gaming seems to stretch into every nook and cranny of the property. As part of its nearly 87,000-square-foot casino, you'll come across such spots as the "Poker Place," where every type of video poker machine imaginable is housed, and Toby Keith's I Love This Party Pit, which brings the whiskey-themed debauchery of his bar and grill downstairs.Harrah's has a lovely Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool, replete with cabanas and comfortable lounge chairs. Other amenities include a fitness center, The Spa at Harrah's (known for its aromatherapy treatments and Swedish massages), a beauty salon and plenty of shopping -- ranging from logo merchandise to jewelry, purses and leisure apparel. Plus, the resort is home to a Las Vegas Monorail station and provides free shuttles to the Rio.Harrah's 2,526 rooms and suites are located in two adjacent 22- and 35-story towers. They feature views of the Strip, mountains, pool or city. Rooms include blackout drapes, pay-per-view movies, an iron and ironing board, a minibar and a hair dryer. There are special floors for non-smoking guests.Offering exciting gaming, exceptional dining, and a party-like atmosphere -- as well as easy access to the action-packed Strip -- Harrah's is the perfect place to get away from everyday life.
