    MGM grand Las Vegas - accessible rooms with Wheel-in Showers? Other hotels?

    I was just wondering if anyone here has stayed at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and knows if they have any rooms that have wheelchair accessible features such as a wheel in shower?

    There?s a couple events that are going to be hosted at the MGM that I was considering making a trip out of to go and see. I know I could stay at another hotel that might have accessibility but I was just wondering if anyone knew specifically about the MGM?

    If no, does anyone else have a suggestion for a hotel that has accessible features such as the wheel and shower and that is fairly nice? Not like extremely pricey but not a dump either

    Check out this video review for the MGM accessible rooms: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiIu4xOtkOE

    Info here too: http://www.gimponthego.com/travel-re...ica/dest1a.htm

    Be sure that you talk directly to the hotel's ADA coordinator, not to some reservation service, and that when you find the right room, you book is as "blocked" (meaning you will get that exact room, not a just a similar one).

    Check out The Rio. The Academy of SCI Professionals held their conferences there for a number of years, and selected it partially based on their accessible features and room availability. Their shuttle to the Strip is also accessible.

      I also consider the proximity of the room and the floors. If the room is far from where I am going and they have plush carpets, that makes for a miserable push session. Because your wheels sink in like sand. There are some casinos that have hard floors. But not many.

        Haven't stayed there in a loooong time, but The Orleans had great roll-in shower rooms. It's just off the strip so is not quite as pricey as the hotels on the Strip. I also stayed at the MGM many moons ago. It was fine, but The Orleans was better. Casino at the MGM was very nice, though. Take SCI-Nurse's advice, no matter where you stay. Las Vegas in general is very accessible since they want to keep all the crippled degenerate gamblers ( like me) pulling the one-armed bandits.

          All hotels in Las Vegas have roll in showers just ask for them at booking.

          If all you need is a roll in shower normal room reservations can book the room because that feature is standard.


          Its a big hotel and they keep most of the WC rooms on the 1st floor.

          Might check out Park MGM its a new remodel 10 min roll use to be Monte Carlo, also Signature behind MGM but its a none gaming hotel.

          Not my video but you get an idea on the bathroom.

              I agree with this. Vegas is superaccessible in general, but those damn carpets...

                Plus the hotels are so big if your a wheelchair user I would suggest renting a scooter or power chair.

                We go 3 to 4 times a year and the deep carpet even wear out my batteries in a power chair!

                Easy to get around monorail. trams, wheelchair cabs and shuttles.

                      Can't speak for other "off the Strip" hotels, but the Rio has a shuttle bus service that goes from their hotel to the MGM Grand (and back) that runs 24/7, and as above, is wheelchair accessible.

                          How long has it been since you went last? Called hotel today for a friend and reservations said they stop the shuttle last Nov?

                            Sorry. It was a little over a year ago. I bet that has cut back on their customers, as it is a hot walk all the way to the Strip from there.

                            I found this information: https://vitalvegas.com/rio-pulls-plu...rahs-17-years/

                              I am sure like everything in Las Vegas its all about the $$ and Caesars (parent company) of Rio stopped shuttle service to save money.

                              Its important to know if you stay at a off the strip hotel its a little to far to roll so make sure you have that figured in to your plans.

                              Getting a wc cab at off strip hotels can be a challenge at times and the later it gets the harder it can be.
