The MGM Grand Las Vegas

The MGM Grand Las Vegas, which opened in 1993, is a hotel casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, as a Hollywood themed resort. It is the world's largest hotel, with 5,044 guest rooms, suites, villas and Skylofts (including 3,153 no smoking rooms).

 

Owned and operated by the MGM Mirage company, the 30-floor building is 293 feet (89 m) high and features five outdoor pools, a 380,000 square foot (35,000 m²) convention center, the MGM Grand Arena, CBS Television City, and the Grand Spa. It also houses numerous shops and night clubs, nine restaurants, two food courts, and the largest casino in Las Vegas, which occupies 171,500 square feet (16,000 m²).

 

The Tropicana - Las Vegas Boulevard intersection, where the MGM Grand is located, is extremely busy. Pedestrians are not allowed to cross at street level. Instead, the MGM Grand is linked by overhead pedestrian bridges to its neighboring casinos: to the south across Tropicana Avenue, the Tropicana, and to the west across the Strip, the New York-New York.
