The MGM Grand in Detroit has raised eyebrows across the country by opening its doors for the first time, and when people walked into the casino-hotel, they could barely believe their eyes.
Inside the casino, which is the first Vegas style resort that has been built in a metropolitan city, developers have combined all the eye catching beauty of a Las Vegas casino and combined it with some down home style to create this mega complex.
Legendary restaurateur Wolfgang Puck will be heavily involved with the new casino-hotel as he will be running Wolfgang Puck Grille at the facility and will also offer 24 hour room service for in-room dining.
The casino seems to have combined what is best from the west Coast with what is best from the East Coast and tried to put it all together to attract tourists. They are targeting people from all over the country and not just their surrounding area. The hope is that people will want to see Detroit and also have all the amenities that Vegas has to offer, all in one vacation.The cost of building this lavish resort was over $800 million, showing that they spared no expense in trying to create one of the best hotel-casinos anywhere in the United States.
With casino gambling becoming more and more prevalent around the nation, this will probably be just the start of these mega entertainment centers that will be going up around the U.S. Chances are that the state of Florida could be the next place where one or more of these eloquent casino-hotels will pop up, since many feel it will not be long before the state legalizes full casino gambling.
