The Four Seasons VS The MGM Grand:
Which Hotel is Right for You?
Since moving away from Las Vegas two years ago, I have been back twice to visit friends, and just to hang out. The first time that I went back, I stayed at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, and the second time I visited, I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel and Resort.
