Floating 29 stories above the Strip, this super-sleek Tony Chi–designed hotel-within-a-hotel feels more New York or London boutique than Vegas casino. Private elevators whisk guests from the discreet lobby — all clean-lined minimalism and contemporary art — up to the 29th floor for private check-in.
Bed & Bath
Lofts start at 1,440 square feet and feature Chi’s patented mix of minimalist palette and contrasting textures (think rough-hewn antique wood tables and undulating porcelain sculptures). There’s a graphic playfulness to the design, with checkerboard carpets, low-slung white sofas and pops of red and marigold. Touchscreen tablets control everything from the AC to the sound system to the TV. But the real centerpiece is the bathroom, which has an infinity tub, waterfall shower that doubles as a steam room, and an in-mirror TV.
The service here is as lofty as your perch: Dream and Spa butlers customize beds with special pillows, draw herb-filled baths and burn aromatherapy oils nightly at your request. Your personal concierge can score VIP access to clubs, tickets to shows and prime dinner reservations. And, of course, you have access to the endless diversions downstairs at the MGM Grand, from dinner at Joël Robuchon to the debauchery at the handful of bars to the five pools, three whirlpools, river and waterfalls outside.
In the Area
Toward the southern end of the Strip, the MGM Grand is a perfect home base for exploring Las Vegas Boulevard on foot or via the monorail. Traipse north to the ersatz Eiffel Tower at the Paris Las Vegas casino, then cross Flamingo Boulevard for a stroll down The LINQ, the Strip’s newest shopping, dining and entertainment complex. Towering over it is the world’s tallest observation wheel, High Roller; a nighttime ride gives the best neon light views. After dark, make reservations for the star chef fare at Aria followed by Cirque de Soleil’s Zarkana. For a little retro fun, take the short taxi ride to the Pinball Hall of Fame, the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs. Have a need for speed? Suit up and put the pedal to the metal at the Richard Petty Driving Experience, where you can drive yourself or ride along with an expert.
How to Get There
Stayed in 2 bedroom skyloft. Had a limo transport me from airport to hotel. Had escort show me the hotel to check in. Had butler (on call) show me the room. They transported my luggage to the room. Room was beautiful, staff was friendly, butlers were suberb! Anytime of night they would assist with anything! Free water snd sodas always restocked whenever i called or next day. View of city was amazing. The best experience! Never stay anywhere other than skylofts!
I'm actually not sure where to start here! I tend to be a fairly critical reviewer of places that refer to themselves as "luxury", having stayed almost everywhere on the Strip (Aria Sky Suites, Waldorf, Four Seasons, Encore Tower Rooms, Wynn Tower, etc...) I can say hands down that nothing comes close to comparing to the Skylofts experience and it really is true Luxury at its finest.
Simply amazing. We had a very large 3,000 Sqft 2 bedroom suite with a great north strip view and a pool table downstairs (Suite 96). Literally everything looked brand new, and everything was so well maintained. Bathrooms were massive, beds were comfortable (And if they weren't you can choose from about 15 different pillows to enhance your sleep). For the 90% of TripAdvisor reviewers who seem to judge a place mostly by whether or not it has in room coffee capabilities, you'll be happy to know there was a great Jura machine in room available for all the coffee and espresso you wish (if you want something else just ask the butlers). If I were to find an area to criticise, the Crestron remotes were fickle (in my room it died and I literally couldn't shut the TV off one night), and oh yeah the pool table wasn't exactly level. Most minor criticisms you'll ever find!
Actually the service was what made this experience. Not only is the room amazing, but the service makes so much difference here. From the pre-arrival experience (thanks, Lea!) to everyone working the desks at reception at any hour of the day everything you want is covered. Unlike nearly every other property in Vegas the one word they don't use here is "No". They make everything possible, and most importantly they follow through. The people here genuinely take an interest and it makes a massive difference. I was starting to really lose faith in Vegas service until my return stay here. I hope the corporate cost cutting greed at MGM stays away from this team as it truly is the last of great service in this town.
Could Use Improvement:
So the Skylofts are really that good. However the only downside to this entire stay is the fact that it's unfortunately located at the MGM Grand. The Grand is a massive property, but it's old and tired, and simply too busy. The casino is a big ash tray with poor ventilation, going anywhere is a hike. The fitness centre is nowhere near the size it needs to be for a property of this size. Additionally during 3 of our 4 nights of our stay a conference had booked out literally the entire pool area except for the lazy river (this was not announced to the guests). This created a massive inconvenience (and one the MGM team capitalised on by charging ridiculously high rates for the remaining Daybeds and cabanas during what should be a quiet mid-week time). It really tainted what would have been a perfect stay (and is the reason for only 4 stars and not 5). In order to truly separate itself the Skylofts really needs its own pool area (similar to SkySuites) and the property needs to enhance some of its core shared offerings.
That being said, this is the best place to stay in Vegas and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Booked a 2-bedroom suite at Skylofts to celebrate treating ourselves to Gaga's Enigma and Jazz + Piano shows in Vegas. Two words to describe the Skylofts: Views and Service. Before you arrive a concierge will set up your transfers to/from the airport. They will also help with dinner reservations. While at the lofts, you will have a butler to assist with a multitude of services. The Skylofts also have amazing steam showers!
You have access to the exclusive dining in MGM's Mansion - which is more like being in a small village in Italy than Vegas.
Can't wait to go back!
Went to Skylofts at MGM Grand with a group of 10 with ages for 1 to 45. The pre arrival concierge(Lea) did a great job preparing for our arrival. She had tickets for shows and events ready for us upon arrival and arranged other transportation for us. Manager Gary Scott was great and greeted us when our lofts were ready and escorted us to our rooms. We stayed in two 2 bedroom Skylofts. We received a great welcome on arrival and the response time to service requests was impressive. The VIP lounge was sub par compared to Bellagio's Chairman's lounge or Aria's Sky Suites lounge (I assume it is due to it being a shared space with MGM VIP). We had breakfast at the Mansion every morning and it was great! Jen at the Mansion was terrific everyday (my 1 yr. old loved her and he doesn't like anyone). Had some issues with the loft while there and billing after departure but all were handled quickly and professionally. So, all and all I have to say Skylofts provided a great stay and we would return (Maybe in a couple of months).
Our recent stay was a remarkable. We live in Las Vegas and and have stayed at many local and international hotels, however, the service provided by the concierge, the front desk and other staff members was the best we have experienced. The Sky Lofts is a beautiful residence.
