I've never stayed at the MGM Grand, only passed through for dinner once and to see Kha once, so I'm hoping to get some room Intel and then any other information folks might have on the current state. This is my first solo trip, looking to stay somewhere with an open/active poker room. I'll spend most of my time watching/betting football, playing VP, live poker and craps. I don't plan to eat any fancy meals and I'll be in town Saturday night through Tuesday morning. I've got the option of NYNY, Delano, MB, Park MGM, Mirage or MGM Grand comped. Really, MGM Grand is the only of those with an active poker room (last time I stayed at MB the poker room was never larger than 1-2 tables, if running a game at all). I don't mind walking to play elsewhere, but to me it seems like MGM Grand is my best option, unless there is a specific reason I should actively avoid it. The room offered is a MGM Grand King Strip View. I've read the west tower I believe is one to avoid, any thing else I should know before deciding on MGM Grand? I appreciate any insights folks have to offer!
