MGM Mirage is now offering wireless Internet access to several of its casino websites. Customers can now book room reservations at six of the company’s Las Vegas resorts, as well as access information about gaming, entertainment, dining, spas, golf and other hotel services ”” all via wireless devices including web-enabled cell phones and personal digital assistants.

Wireless Internet access provides anytime and anywhere convenience for customers to access information.

A leisure traveler can use a Palm pilot to retrieve spa services available at The Mirage and review hours of operation and ticket prices for the Manhattan Express Rollercoaster featured at New York-New York.

"This technology offers our guests another convenient tool to book accommodations and inquire about the wide array of offerings and attractions at our premier resorts," said Bill Hornbuckle, President of MGM Mirage Online.

The LVCVA’s recent visitor profile revealed that more than half of Las Vegas visitors book their rooms online, and half use the Internet to help decide where they plan to stay.
