My hubby and I decided to "Get-Away" for the evening and enjoy each other prior to my upcoming surgery. We purchased the "Grand Player" package for a Sunday to Monday stay, $289. This included the room, $50 voucher for meals, and $100 gaming voucher. Valet parking was also included.
The hotel is beautiful and the service top-notch. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The room (King) was spacious, linens wonderful, the bed I wanted to take home it was so comfortable! The bathroom had a flat screen TV built into the mirror that also had a selection of music channels (probably my favorite part of the room!), and the "rainshower" option. The pool was beautiful, the locker rooms had separate showers, whirlpool, suana, and all toiletries...including a new toothbrush if you wanted! The only negative was the floor was SO SLIPPERY! The fitness center had all you needed, though we didn't utilize it. The customer service was fantastic on every level, I really can't say enough about it!
We ate the the buffet for dinner and breakfast. The 1st hour of all meals is 1/2 price, so we went early to get both meals. ($18 for the breakfast buffet is definately over-priced, $9 a deal!) The food was great, as well as the service. (I'm not a fan of buffets like Old Country Buffet, generally speaking.) Everything was fresh, presentation great, and there are stations around the buffet to cook made to order items...pasta, lamb chops, BBQ, Asian, sushi were some of the choices.
The beers were only $1.50 for Bud Light, mixed drinks $5. We brought some cocktails with us, and went back to the room and made a drink. We're not big gamblers, played the penny and nickel slots for hours.
Late check-out at 1pm for no additional charge. In a half hour, we were home!
It was like we stepped in to another world for 24 hours, and will definately go back for another stay!! I wish the rest of the city of Detroit would "catch-up" to the MGM and become the major city I think us "Detroiter's" know in our hearts it could be.
I would recommend for a romantic get-away, business travel, birthday, even bachelor/bachlorette parties...no drunk driving!!
