Mandalay Bay Resort Room Tour and Review in Las Vegas

Mandalay Bay is that gold building that lets
you know that you made it to Las Vegas It’s on the edge of the strip, but if you’re
looking for a nice hotel with one of the best pools
and maybe planning to watch the Michael Jackson Cirque Du Soleil show,
this may be the place for you. First, the location is not so friendly if
you’re planning to wonder around the strip on foot. There is a tram that goes up to Excalibur,
but plan on using Uber. You can rent a car, but keep in mind that
many hotels including Mandalay Bay started charging for self-parking. On a positive note, I heard many tour shuttles
drop off people first at the Mandalay Bay. The new Raider’s Stadium is also being built
behind Mandalay Bay, so it may not be so lonely around the area soon. Here are some tips for you to save on your
room Tip #1. Become a mLife member on their website and
your hotel rate will come down. You can also use your mLife card at their
stores to get 5% off Tip #2. Download the myVegas app. This app gives you buffet passes, show tickets,
discounts on rooms, and other goodies on MGM properties. The check-in starts at 3pm. I recommend just booking the run-of-the-mill
room and tipping the front desk to see if you can get a room upgrade. You can see my other videos to see it working. They’ll send you an email to do a mobile
check-in and they now have these kiosk’s to check you in. Ignore both. I recommend going up to the front desk so
you have a say in your room. I was only here for one night so I just smiled
and asked for a high floor with a view. If you are charming enough, I’ve read some
people getting upgrades for just asking 🙂 It doesn’t hurt to ask. Higher floor, strip view, away from the elevator
and it may help to say you’re ok with queen or king. Mandalay Bay has 43 floors. The top 3 are penthouses, then apparently
Four Seasons owns the next 5 floors and we were able to get the 34th floor around…
here. Here is the Mandalay Bay’s Run of the mill
/ Resort Queen room. Everything was a lot better than I expected. Mandalay Bay remodeled their hotel in 2007
and it did feel upscale. Comfortable beds with 4 pillows and a leather
backboard Huge tub with great water pressure
LED Mirrors that make you look pretty Stable and usable internet
USB chargers Slim and fast Samsung TV
Modern lighting and lamps Comfortable work area
An iHome that doesn’t have the old iPhone connector
And the room was actually very quiet but maybe we just had quiet neighbors. The view was great. I was surprised to see Mandalay Bay is only
the 18th tallest building in Las Vegas. All the buildings around were short so I felt
really high up. Now, for some things I think they could improve
on and I apologize for nitpicking. This hotel doesn’t have security checking
for keycards at the elevators so make sure you lock your valuables in the safe and use
the deadbolt at night. Mini fridge is fully stocked so you won’t
have space to put your items This isn’t the wallpaper I would’ve picked. I’m sure some geologist would appreciate
it, but it literally looks like hell. Housekeeping could’ve been better. The notepad wasn’t replenished, minibar
seemed like it was missing something, and the bathtub was dirty with sand in it. * Our checkout was at 11am and they started
knocking for us to get out at 10am despite there being a do not disturb tag. This happened 3 times and according to other
Yelp reviews, we’re not the only ones that experienced this. There were also some electricity issues where
the mirror kept making popping noises This also can’t be safe. Now, for the best part about this hotel. Just go down to the very bottom floor on the
elevator and you come out to their pool. Mandalay Bay has a beach pool and a lazy pool. They do scan your key card and they provide
towels You can buy swimsuits, sunblock, and even
order food and drinks while you are out here. We came in the morning and we pretty much
had the whole pool to ourselves The pool opens at 8am but you can checkout
from your hotel a little later for $25. That way, you can come back up to clean up
before leaving the hotel. Mandalay Bay has 24 restaurants in the resort,
live music, plenty of slots and table games, the 3rd largest aquarium in the US, and the
Michael Jackson Cirque show. Maybe with all that, it’s ok to be on the
edge of the strip 🙂

    Great videos and channel.. Keep up the good work!! Greetings from Vegas

  13. Adam W says:

    So this is very close to the Airport and kind of far from the strip?

  14. Adam S says:

    Wow great review!! I usually stay at the Cosmopolitan with a balcony overlooking the Fountains, well that just can't be beat.  Although with my upcoming trip this fall and as was with last trip, I'm going to the Barrett Jackson car auction which is at Mandalay Bay so I have been debating about staying there since the majority of the time I'm there anyway.  After this review you have made up my mind! And half the price of the Cosmo keeps some extra cash in the pocket for fun!  Thanks!!

  15. emily says:

    when he starts criticizing the place and the sad music comes on LMAOOOO

  20. darealrobertmcd says:

    Great video as always. Did you know they have a tram that is free and runs I believe every 15 minutes that drops you off right outside New York New York? I say that because I believes it totally solves the problem from being so far away from all the other action

  21. Edgar says:

    This is a very good video and I learned a lot. We will be staying at this hotel next week–Can't wait. By the way, you're wife is smoking.

  25. COMICS PLUS! by Akasan says:

    Tip 1: Duck and Cover

  40. oppinoy says:

    They showed an excerpt of this video on Inside Edition. I hope they cited you. I know it’s a crappy situation to why they used the video, but they should still credit you for the video.

  41. RandomFoxyFan217 says:

  42. Shiv J says:

    Well there was a shooting there

  43. Shiv J says:

    Rip 😰😓

  44. rome sixer says:

    This was the hotel in the song Me and my 'monkey' . Strange how the lyrics of the song echo what happened there.

  45. pykkervots says:

    A casino without any security? How else could someone intall an arsenal of weaponry in their room without maid service for days on end while they rig up CCTV cameras in the corridor completely undetected by guests or hotel staff. Things are a a little bit….'lax' at the Mandalay don't you think? I do

  46. Stephen Paddock says:

    I loved my stay at this hotel. Rooms could've have been a bit comfier but the party was still lit. I left you all a good yelp review 🙂

  47. Moyes Micheal says:

    Sure would love to see the cameras of Paddock packing all this ammo weapons up to his room Paddock was a government contractor for Lockheed Martin the owner of this hotel is MGM Disney production and in all the videos I've seen military people doing CPR on dummies and fake victims with no blood and no pain yelling MPs and medic military drill all this was

  48. Aid Mon says:

    The question so many want answered: Are there cameras in the guest room area hallways?

  49. Landon Walker says:

    Kenji, did you happen to try the $20 trick at Mandalay Bay? My wife and I are staying there this weekend. Just curious if you got any good vibes from the staff?

  50. Bonsai Yama Review says:

    Pretty awesome reviews brother! I just started doing reviews in June. I hope you check mine out too. Great Video!

  51. Nick May says:

    I pretty much know why 90% of you are here.

  53. Chad Mower says:

    this is spectacular! Going there next weekend for a wedding. GREAT JOB

  54. Joe Shmoe says:

    The Delano, which is their sister hotel is much nice. No pool view tho. The aquarium sucks as the lights are always off to keep the algae growth curtailed. Don't pay, its not worth it to see for a fee. Citizen's restaurant has better coffee than Starbucks.
    I a maid knocked on my door even once I'd tell them they just comped my room.
    If you like Asian gals, nice place to get laid.
    Have not stayed at The Four Seasons, can't comment.

  55. Gabriel C. says:

    Has anyone tried this in Harrah’s?

  56. Steve Anderson says:

    Nice review. Very well put together.

  57. Everyday is a Struggle says:

    Really like your video style. Would love to see more videos on the $20 tip trick for all other hotels! 🙂

  63. Alvin Ferrion says:


  64. Ace Of Vegas says:

    Kenji you are the man! 3 for 3 so far with the 20 dollar trick. Wins in MGM, Mandalay Bay and NYNY. Not always a linear room upgrade, but if they don't upgrade the room I typically get food or game credits. Thanks again!

  65. PJ Slots & Entertainment says:

    A very nice room and a good review. You had a fabulous view. I am staying there in August of 2018. Now I know what room to ask for, just a little lower floor.

  66. Abigail Aquino says:

    Great review! Very thorough and informative 😊 Keep up the good work!

  67. amy khyumy says:

    My go to Las Vegas channel.

  68. late fall chill says:

    July 2018: Mandalay Bay parent company MGM Resorts is choosing to SUE 1,000 of the shooting victims of the massacre that came from one of their rooms. I would suggest anyone who believes in fairness choose NOT to stay at Mandalay Bay. Suing victims of a mass shooting is cruel.

  69. Daniel Young says:


  70. Steve says:

    What are you doing filming at 2:99… you got your priorities wrong lol

  71. Sonny J says:

    Detailed and very helpful review, didn't ask me to subscribe, you other videos are informative and well put together as well. so I'd definitely subscribe! I'm going to Mandalay Bay on Sunday with my preggo wife. Any advise?

  75. mkb says:

    I went to Vegas in 2000, 2001 and again in 2008, it has changed a lot. Not as clean as it used to be . I will never stay at the Luxor again, its a total cat house.

  76. King Tinker says:

    I dare you to sleep in the room the shooter was in. Like if you would.

  77. jimmy p says:

    does it have a shower?

  78. Katherine Schwartzle says:

    Loved your review. It was informative, entertaining, and fun.

    I paid $20 in Westgate resort and asked for strip view, away from elevator, higher floor. But they only put me to a high floor and gave me a queen size bed instead of king too.
