The new $800 Million Luxury MGM Grand Detroit opened in October of 2007. It is the first of it's kind in the core of a major metropolitan center in the USA. Detroit Casinos, MGM Grand


When you walk into the Casino you feel like you walked into a casino in Las Vegas. They have done a good job creating that type of atmosphere.


They have all the casino gaming you could imagine, include the High Limit areas, a separate poker room, and slots, slots and more slots. They also have a few table games that I have not seen before.


The hotel has 420 rooms and suites all in the luxury you would imagine an MGM property would have. There is a concierge level and many types of suites. The property hosts the Immerse Spa, a full service Salon, a fitness center and pool.


The dining options at the MGM Grand include: Wolfgang Pucks Grille, Saltwater (Seafood dining experience), and Bourbon Steak. We ate at Wolfgang Pucks Grille and it was exquisite. We HIGHLY recommend it. Next time we will try one of the other 2 restaurants that the casino host was recommending.


MGM Grand Detroit has won several awards, including the Metro Times Best Casino in 2009 and 2010.
