    I'm T-35 to my first stay at MGM and having a hard time sleeping already lol!
    I've noticed HUGE lines at registration there.
    I'm Pearl with M-Life, and booked my room on-line thru M-Life. NYNY had a VIP check-in line for me. Does MGM offer it too? My friend thinks its only Gold card or higher.
    Has anyone who is pearl level, or booked thru m-life, use VIP Check-in at MGM ?Anyone ???

    The VIP check in is gold and higher.

    The lineups are, a roll of the dice. It all depends on your arrival time.

    Have fun!!!

    I'll be staying at MGM for the first time in a few weeks. Do they have a VIP check-in/lounge (to the left of the registration desk) as well as an M life gold+ line at the regular check-in?

    "vip" checkin at MGM is for gold or higher. That being said, when I went there in December, there was a long line at regular check in, and what appeared to be a shorter line at the "vip" check in. They had only two people working the "vip" line and the regular check in was much shorter time wise. I know this because I watched the people who got in line when we got there and walked over to the other check in were headed toward their room with keys in hand and I was still waiting in line. The only benefit worthwhile with the gold level at MGM is the cafe line pass.

    Was just at MGM 2 weeks ago, the VIP check-in is for Gold and above.

    I have also noticed that the $20 trick has a lower success rate at the VIP check-in compared to regular check-in...at any property

    I'm Pearl too and I'm a little bummed, took me over an hour last time I stayed there!

    I've had good luck checking in early lately. I haven't tried at MGM, but last year nearly everywhere I stayed I checked it well before 3 and it was fine. Twice I had to pick up my keys later, but it was still easier.

    My wife and I are Pearl and received a 4 night comp offer from MGM. When we got there we were told to go to left at "Invited guest line" took like a minute to check in.

    I can confirm this as well pcfier and tinytim.
    Wife and I stayed on an MLife offer Dec 8-12th and were directed to the VIP check in room as well. Which was great because the line during the NFR was really long

    We were just there and used the VIP line and took 5 mins to check in, but next to the VIP line there is a double door room with a hostess in front, does anyone know what room that is.....would this be platinum and noir members?
