I am looking to throw and in suite reception either at mgm or the platinum hotel. I do not want to have it catered, I am only having about 20 guests so I am buying a cake and some take out for all of the quests. I have been reading all over that mgm allows outside food in their suites however when i contacted the hotel they told me that they do not allow outside food. Does anyone know if this is a change in policy or do they just not care if people sneak food in? Have any of you thrown a reception at either of these hotels? what was your experience like?
