If you could stuff all of Vegas under one roof, MGM Grand is big enough to accommodate that. The vibe: Infinitesimally large, diverse offerings to satisfy every type of visitor, show-rific What we love: You don’t have to leave the hotel to experience many of the “bests” of Vegas. MGM Grand is home to some of the world’s top restaurants along with a stable of celebrity chefs. (Anyone heard of Wolfgang Puck, Tom Colicchio and Emeril Lagasse?) Insider tips: The best way to avoid the long taxi line – which can stretch around the porte cochere on a busy night – is to take the Las Vegas Monorail. Good to know: A reality about staying at MGM Grand is that you’ll do a lot of walking. You could easily rack up several miles on your Fitbit each day just by going from your room to the pool, restaurants and bars. (For those among us who are more lethargic, this may be the one time you request a room near the elevator bank.) Keep in mind every hotel room is non-smoking. Don’t risk it – that’s a pricey cleaning fee at checkout. Save yourself the trouble and smoke in designated areas only.
