My husband, Dave, and I left Albany,NY yesterday at 1:55pm on Southwest and arrive in Las Vegas at 3:55 a full 35 minutes early. We had to stop and get a Dine 4less card that I got for free so by the time we got to the luggage carousal our bags were there. Decided to try checking in to the MGM right at the airport there was a short line but it moved quickly. Was too chicken to try the $20 trick because there were 4 clerks working, so I just asked how much it would be for a upgrade. Since we booked our room online at $55/night rate my hubby said to go for the suite. So after a short taxi ride we were walking into MGM. The line at the hotel check-in wasn't too long but I'm glad that we did it at the airport before I knew it we were walking into a beautiful Celebrity Spa suite. The room is very large with a sitting area that is seperate from the sleeping area, which is nice since I'm up very early.We don't have much of a view but I did get to see the sun rise and it was beautiful. The bathroom is big too with marble and a big jacuzzi tub. Atfer unpacking we decided to wander around MGM. It is huge, we walked around the pool area and some of them were already closing. They all close by 8:00pm. I think that's kinda early. We saw the restaurants, shops and decided to have a bite to eat the Rainforest cafe. It seemed to be the only place with people in it. It was OK, we just needed some food since it was 10:00 NY time. Then we gambled some I lost and Dave won. Headed up to the room @ 11:00, 2:00 NY time. The bedding is extremely comfortable but I agree with most, they need to upgrade their TV's. More to follow.
