MGM Grand Detroit Earns Prestigious Award; All Ratings Showcased on

ATLANTA, February 20, 2018 - Forbes Travel Guide today unveiled its annual Star Rating list, once again naming MGM Grand Detroit a Forbes Travel Guide four-star hotel. The luxury resort hotel’s signature fine dining establishment, Wolfgang Puck STEAK, also attained four-star status – the only restaurant in Michigan to receive the prestigious rating.
Located in downtown Detroit, MGM Grand Detroit is the city’s first and only luxury resort-style casino built from the ground up. The property features 400 chic and stylish guest rooms, signature restaurants, Michigan’s first Topgolf Swing Suite and the full-service IMMERSE spa.
“Providing guests with world-class service and amenities is a priority for our outstanding team here in Detroit,” said Mike Neubecker, President and COO of MGM Grand Detroit. “We are honored to continuously receive this esteemed recognition for our hard work and unrelenting commitment to guest experience.”
The Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings have been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958. MGM Grand Detroit has been a four-star property in the guides since 2008.
“We are pleased to honor the 2018 Star Rating recipients, an exceptional collection of hotels, restaurants and spas that demonstrates a strong culture of service,” said Gerard J. Inzerillo, Chief Executive Officer of Forbes Travel Guide.
“In an online environment of confusion and clutter, Forbes Travel Guide is the most trusted source of information to assist guests in making informed decisions,” Inzerillo said. “These properties, the largest and most global group in the company’s history, achieve an impeccable standard of excellence in hospitality, underscoring our overall mission of positively contributing to the international tourism industry as well as individual hotel experience. We are proud to congratulate everyone associated with the prestigious properties recognized today.”
