The MGM Grand Las Vegas is a hotel casino located on the Las Vegas Strip, which opened in 1993 as a Hollywood themed resort. The hotel is located in Paradise, Nevada but markets itself as a Las Vegas resort and uses "Las Vegas" on its addresses.

Owned and operated by the MGM Mirage company, the 30-floor main building is 293 feet (89 m) high and features five outdoor pools, rivers, and waterfalls that cover 6.6 acres, a 380,000 square foot (35,000 m²) convention center, the MGM Grand Arena, CBS Television City, and the Grand Spa. It also houses numerous shops and night clubs, 16 restaurants, two food courts, and the largest casino in Clark County, which occupies 171,500 square feet (16,000 m²).

The hotel rooms are located in several buildings including:

* The world's largest hotel building, with 5,044 rooms (4,293 rooms and 751 suites)

* The three The Signature at MGM Grand towers each with 576 suites

* SKYLOFTS at MGM Grand with 51 lofts

* The Mansion at MGM Grand with 29 villas

Located on the Tropicana - Las Vegas Boulevard intersection, pedestrians are not allowed to cross at street level. Instead, the MGM Grand is linked by overhead pedestrian bridges to its neighboring casinos: to the south across Tropicana Avenue, the Tropicana, and to the west across the Strip, the New York-New York.

The MGM Grand was one of the casinos that Danny Ocean and his crew robbed in the 2001 film Oceans Eleven.
