Where to go for one night in Vegas? I searched for a place to stay at the two main hotel groups here. Ceasars Total Rewards and MGM M-life. I am a member of both programs and both give me different benefits. I like that stays at M-life properties count towards your elite qualification for the World of Hyatt program. The cheapest rate I could find was at the MGM Grand for some reason. I booked the one night stay and started my drive to Las Vegas.
The MGM Grand is located at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip, exactly the opposite spot of where I am coming from. The drive to get to the hotel was easy on a late Sunday afternoon.
Once there I looked for the parking garage and followed the signs for self-parking. Because I am a Gold member of the M-life rewards program, I don’t have to pay for self or valet parking. Once I got to the gate of the parking garage, I swiped my M-life rewards card and was able to get in.
I headed to the lobby to check-in. It’s quite a walk from the parking garage to the check in counter. It’s even more interesting if you have bags and need to use an elevator. It took me a second to find the best way to the lobby from the “Underground”. That’s how the hotel calls this area between the parking garage and hotel lobby.
I lined myself up in the elite check-in line. Lucky for me again that I have status with M-life. The regular check-in line was long and was only slowly moving. At the counter, I received my room keys and headed up to my room. The elevators for my tower were just passed the lobby and the first right once inside the casino.
