My daughter and I arrived at the MGM around 1:30pm on 11/8 for a short visit. Walked right up to the checkin desk and were immediately given our room, a Stay-Well queen on the 14th floor. This was our first stay at the MGM, and we will definitely be back. We loved it. We had a great view of the mountains, NYNY and Excalibur, and Luxor and Mandalay Bay in the distance. The room was great. The beds, linens, pillows and towels were luxurious. We enjoyed all the hotel had to offer. A person could stay there for several days and never leave. We ate at the buffet twice. Once for breakfast, which was crowded, but very good, and once for dinner which left much to be desired (and was fairly vacant). I would not do that again. It is as a very small buffet in comparison to others and most of what I ate was not very good. I was especially disappointed with the prime rib. It was well past the well-done level. Totally brown, thru and thru. Also had some brisket that was tougher than an old shoe. The wait staff did a good job, tho. Also ate at Emeril's Fish House Restaurant. I had the pecan crusted Texas redfish, and my daughter had the barbecued Atlantic salmon. Both were good, and again, the wait staff was excellent. We also ate at our Las Vegas favorite, Mon Ami Gabi, at Paris for breakfast. It was excellent, as usual. One observation -- we were at Excalibur on Monday, early afternoon, and the checkin line was almost out the door, and there were some very disgruntled guests. Apparently, they had been there for a while. Overall, a great trip!! Can't wait to go back!! Love Vegas and the MGM Grand!!
