    I booked an offer for 3 nights comped at MB next week with tickets to the NHL Awards 6/19 ... is anyone else going? Anyone gone in previous years?

    First stay at MB and first time booking with an M Life host (previously all CET experience) so any tips on the property or what to expect would be appreciated! I’ve done some searches and pretty familiar with the generalities.. wondering if there is anything specific at MB I should be sure to ask for?

    My confirmation letter states VIP check in & no resort fees so it feels like the host has already helped beyond the online offer.. planning on bringing a gift card as a thank you. Btw I am Gold, might make Plat on this trip.

    I’m checking out of MB on the 19th so will just miss the awards. Enjoy your stay at MB. Try Dellas for breakfast or an early lunch. (They close at 2). Also Libertine Social for dinner is very good. MB has recently updated their slot floor which was long overdue. The table games dealers and pit bosses are very friendly. I really enjoy the casino. Have a great time.

    Never been to the awards, buy a few years ago I came across the display of all the NHL trophies in the MGM lobby.
    Pretty impressive, as they bring them out 2 or 3 times for a few hours (scheduled beforehand), and allow fans to see and get their pictures taken with the various award trophies, including the Stanley Cup.
    I'm a novice NHL fan, but found it pretty cool and not something I've seen with the other pro sports.
    Lots of fans around.

    It was great!

    Our comp tickets at the MB Events Center were in Section 120 row G. Excellent view. I was happy, and loved the event center as a whole, especially compared to our aging SAP Center.

    We ducked out a bit before the last couple awards since we were hungry, but I heard they only had one exit route so people were herded out very slowly. Might be something to keep in mind if they do this event there in the future.

    The post-awards cocktail reception was in MB at HOB, we didn’t have access but were gambling nearby and it was fun to be so close to the players while they were waiting to get in :)

    It was a fun event to attend after hockey season.. I did have more valuable offers in my account, but the comp stays all listed resort fees. The host/marketing person comping the resort fees made up for that in my eyes. Not sure if that would have happened with a bigger F&B credit/free play offer.

    If you want a great spot with beautiful views for some cocktails try Skyfall Lounge at Delano-steps away from one of Mandalay’s casino entrances. Also, if you are looking for a casual spot for a bite to eat try the Burger Bar located in Shoppes of Mandalay-great food and nice beer selection. Fancier dinner there is always Charlie Palmer Steak with the Cut of the week for $58-great deal if the “cut” for the week is to your liking! It’s in the Four Seasons which is inside Mandalay.
