In 1980, 87 people died after a fire broke out here (the hotel was the MGM Grand back then). Most of the victims perished on the upper floors due to smoke inhalation, but probably remain here. Guests and employees have reported seeing apparitions of many people, but are usually bluish in color, seem disoriented or confused, sometimes are accompanied by the smell of smoke.

  1. My boyfriend and I stayed here in the Jubilee Tower, which provides a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. One morning he told me that in the night he had heard someone whisper very clearly and crisply, “Danny, Danny” right in his ear. He was unafraid, but I was quite alarmed, so I researched the hotel’s history and read about the 1980 fire. I found a list of those who perished, and sure enough, one of them was named Daniel.

  2. I work in the Bally’s. I was sent to go to a storage area to get some supplies that we needed in the restaurant. it was a large space and I couldn’t find the to go cups so saying to no one in particular.out loud “where are those cups?” all of a sudden I hear something fall around the corner I walk to see what and 2 rolls of cups had fallen out of the box with 1 halfway out. I picked up the cups turned around and said thank you and left quite freaked out.
