MGM Gold Strike Casino: The Perfect Girlfriends Getaway Part 2

Elaine and I arrived at the MGM Gold Strike Casino Resort around 2:30 in the afternoon. As we drove up to the entrance, I told Elaine to use the Valet Parking and I would pay for it because I didn’t feel like walking far from the parking lot. We were both pleasantly surprised to find that the Valet Parking was complimentary!

From the moment we arrived at the MGM Gold Strike Casino, we felt like we were treated like royalty, or at least like we were two famous ladies. The only disappointment of the entire weekend was that our room was not ready when we arrived. To be fair, though, my reservation confirmation said we could check in after 4:00 p.m. The front desk clerk told us that we could check our bags at the bell stand, and they would store them in a closet until our room was ready. With that problem solved almost before we asked, we were free to explore a bit.

We decided to sit in the Food Court for a while to rest a bit from our journey. The salads and sandwiches look very appealing, so we were soon eating a quick bite.

At 4:00 p.m. we checked in, and gave our baggage claim check to the bell attendant. We went up to our room, and in a few minutes, the bell attendant was at the door with our bags. We were greeted with a welcome package of snacks, tied up in pretty red bow!

What a nice touch! I felt like a VIP!

Just look at this room! Both of us got our things settled right away, and crawled into our beds to nap. We woke up about fifteen minutes before we were supposed to be at the Chicago Steak House for dinner. Before I tell you about that, let me show you pictures of the room:

Our beds were soooo comfortable!

Those beds were so comfortable. I slept so good on mine. We were on the 25th floor, so our view out the window was of the Mississippi River at flood stage.

We had a desk, a large chest of drawers, a big screen TV and two ver comfortable chairs.

This hotel has one of those little coffee pots that makes one cup at a time. There was no fridge or microwave, but there were bottles of water in the room. The bell attendant asked us if we wanted him to fill our ice bucket, too! So, we had ice available for our water.

A card addressed to me! I felt so special.

I just had to show that because I have never had anything like this waiting for me in a hotel. I started looking for my princess crown, hahaha.

I asked for a handicap accessible room, and they delivered.

After my awful experiences trying to get a handicap accessible room in Flagstaff, Arizona, I was so impressed that MGM Gold Strike promised AND delivered one for my stay. I just can not tell you how much those bars and bath seat mean to me.

The handicap accessible bathroom has enough space to accommodate a wheelchair.

Now that I have told you all about our room, tomorrow I’ll tell you about our meal at Chicago Steak House at MGM Gold Strike. Believe me when I say it was delicious!

  1. Wow! It looks like a very nice hotel – a great place to rest after a long day hitting the one arm bandits! I have stayed at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and really like MGM properties.
