When you talk about Las Vegas whales and high-end living on the Strip, many people point to the suites in the towers of Caesars, the fantasy suites at The Palms and the refined luxurious penthouse suites of the Bellagio. But the Grand Daddy of them all is The MGM Mansion.
When you mention The Mansion, I generally get two responses “never heard of them” or “They still have them?” Yes. The mansion is a private oasis for the rich and powerful people who gamble heavily or have other earth moving credentials. Sitting at 290,000 square feet of architectural splendor resort within the MGM Grand has 29 villas for high roller known as ‘whales’ or VIPs willing to spend $5,000+ per night.
Whats funny is when you see the videos or read the travel websites, they refer to it as “a private place so exclusive, we can’t tell you where it is on the property” – I’m figuring anyone familiar with Las Vegas and the MGM location can tell you where it is!!
When I was chauffeuring, I never had the opportunity to pick up there. But I drove by it many times. I was usually requested to drop off the celebrities at the main entrance so they could maximum their TMZ moments then claim they were ambushed by the media!! Loved it….
