Check-in line was long, and slow. I was shockingly informed that I was the only one registered for the room eventhough my partner in crime did pay for her flight+hotel. Was asked if I wanted her name added to the room, which is why we got 2 Queen beds, duh!. Nonesense. The room itself was good, but the airconditioning vent was small and not strong enough. There was some long black slab on the window you slide to let the air in. And ifcourse, there was no refrigerator nor microwave... major bummer. The casino is smoke filled; I guess America's smokers converged on MGM for a last puff as youngsters have turned to vaping. I prefer a non-smoking casino so I could keep the Angel of Death from me for 50 years. MGM seemed like it wants to be all things to all people; clubers, families, oldsters, sports fans, gamers, etc. Add to that the fancy restaurants like Hakkasan, which is strictly for white yuppies and girls in high heels, black dresses with half their breasts exposed... which I am hoping will be gone by next year. Oh, and their lion habitat is gone. I guess free shows are too much for Vegas these days as they are moving away from family entertainment and back to gambling and adult themes not friendly for kids. That is why the Brazil shows in Rio and TI's pirate shows are gone as well. Their buffet voucher system was confusing. We used it for dinner, and then we had bathroom time for some 2 hours to expel the horrible food. Thankfuly, I came well stocked with Alka-Seltzer. However, MGM's breakfast buffet was good. You'll be asked to pay the following charges at the hotel: Deposit: USD 100.00 per night Resort fee: USD 35.84 per accommodation, per night The hotel resort fee includes: Fitness center access Internet access Phone calls Oh boy, I get charged even if I dont use it? Major rip-off. And I never asked for new cookies or chips, for which $8 daily was added to my hotel bill. Their so-called "mini-bar" nonesense: the girl said she has to re-stock it, so she opens it, which contained soda, beer and liquor bottles; says I have to talk to front desk to open it. Uh, if I never opened it why do you need to "re-stock" it? The check-out time is 11am, but my flight is at 10pm, well there go $5 tip to the luggage man to haul it into storage; and then another $5 to get it out because he has to feed the kiddies?... No, its a ripoff! It was all just too much, I'd rather pay less and stay at less crowded props like Luxor, Bally's, Trop, than this mashup.
