My Wife and I stay here every year and love it. One could easily stay inside this Hotel/Casino for an entire stay, it just has so much to offer. Lots of excellent restaurants and better than expected gaming. Slots and Video Poker are fair, but you can find good VP in the higher limits. Excellent Blackjack can be found here if you know where to look ($25, S17, etc), low house advantage. Lots of walking, as it is huge. It has a terrific pool(s), and also has a lazy river and trendy new pool (Wet Republic). The smell of this Hotel/Casino is fabulous. Check it out, for sure!!
This is easily one of the largest casino floors on the Strip. The slot machines seem to go on forever and it's easily to get lost amoung the one armed bandits. This multitude of machines offers you a wide variety and the newest released machines.
The Rain Forest Cafe is a nice comfortable eatery that offered us good food and fine service. The MGM location offers easy walking access to New York, New York; Tropicana and The Excalibur.
Unless you are a high roller, I get the impression that they really don't want you there. The dealers deal well, but are personable. MLife is one of the worst player's clubs. I can play a lot there and never get offers. There are so many casinos in Vegas, that you should never feel like you are an imposition.
