Skylofts at MGM Grand
Get ready for an experience. Seriously, do some stretches. Find your breath. The Skylofts at MGM Grand and going to knock your socks off then have someone come put way nicer socks on your feet. Situated high atop the resort’s Grand Tower, these loft-style accommodations combine cutting-edge design with great views and consummate personal service. If you can swing the price tag, these lofts just might make you want to hide in the closet when it’s time to check out so you don’t have to leave. Then again, if you can swing the price tag you probably have a nicer home than we do. So what do we know? Your Skylofts experience actually begins at the airport. A luxury limousine will pick you up and carry you to the MGM Grand. We doubt that the driver literally picks you up, but you never know what someone will do for a big enough tip. And of course, you’ll be returned to the airport in similar fashion at the end of your stay. Upon arrival at MGM Grand, expect to be greeted by a concierge in the SkyLobby and then whisked up a private elevator to your loft, where a signature drink awaits for your check-in. In addition to the concierge, you’ll have an array of staff members catering to your personal and business needs. For example, a butler will be happy to unpack your luggage as well as do the packing before your departure. Take a moment to think about that while you pretend to savor that drink. Keep reading whenever you’re ready. Prior to your arrival, the Skylofts concierge will have made note of any show, restaurant or spa reservation you desire — and you will always receive preferred seating and VIP treatment. Being at the MGM Grand, your options for entertainment include the Grand Garden Arena which hosts concerts by the world’s top artists, championship boxing matches, award shows and more. And the resort is also home to the stunning Cirque du Soleil production “KÀ.” If you do decide to venture out of your immaculate room, instead of just cozying up and ordering room service, many acclaimed international chefs helm one-of-a-kind dining experiences here. You can indulge your palate at Joël Robuchon, Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak, International Smoke, Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill and other wonderful eateries. Nightlife and daylife also abound at Hakkasan Las Vegas and Wet Republic. Among MGM Grand’s other offerings are a sprawling casino floor, the Grand Spa, a huge fitness center, many shopping areas and attractions like CSI: The Experience. But let’s be honest. This is the place to stay when you either want to never leave your room or show off your room to everyone. For the former, your every need and desire will be met by attentive butlers. They’ll see to everything from arranging laundry and shoe shine service to pressing and steaming your clothing. They’ll also prepare drinks and set up floral arrangements in your suite. A “dream butler” will be at the ready to ensure you have a good night’s sleep by aiding you in selecting the perfect pillow from a menu with 15 different fill and firmness option. You’ll also receive nightly turndown service with a flower and an inspirational quote. Because if you can afford to stay here you probably need even more encouragement in life. And if you feel the need to get a little tipsy before showing someone your room or having your “spa butler” draw them a bath, all Skylofts guests have exclusive access to the SkyLounge on the 29th floor. Charge light appetizers and all the cocktails you can drink right to your room because money means nothing at this point. Las Vegas is a town of luxury overlooking more luxury. And the Skylofts at MGM is pretty close to the top of the line. With prices ranging from $800 to $2000 a night, you probably already know whether you can afford to stay here. If you can, then the reason is simple — because you can. The accommodations are incomparable. The service is comprehensive. And if this is something you’ve been saving up for, the thrill of showing off your Skyloft to everyone back home is priceless.
