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
Enjoyed our stay over Chinese New Year at the SkyLofts in the MGM Grand. We were always impressed for the care and service the staff has. This time, we were pleasantly surprised they had a VIP line for the Jay Chou concert for MLife members.
The Skyloft was the perfect blend of informal space and living quarters. It worked perfectly for hosting many business meetings and small receptions. Guests did have a challenge finding their way up though, and signage is not readily visible.
Horrible experience. They shut the water in our loft. No shower. Not sink. Not toilets. Ridiculous. We have never had this happen before. So crazy. Really wish they would have moved us or something. Nuts.
I have stayed at the one bedroom skyloft before but this time I stayed in the 2 bedroom and it was incredible. All the staff was amazing. But the best part of the trip was breakfast at the mansion. Didn’t get picked up in the Bentley from the airport that was the only disappoint in the whole trip.
SkyLofts by far has the greatest service provided in Las Vegas. We have stayed at many other locations and none of them come close to the service we received here. The butlers are all attentive and if you have a chance eat breakfast at the Mansion.
