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
Exceptional way to make your stay in Las Vegas memorable. If you want to make a once in a lifetime trip, then stay at skylofts, however a word of caution-you will come back as this is the standard to which old lady Vegas is known for
If you are looking for the best room in Vegas, the Skyloft Suite at the MGM Grand is the best. You get a terrace that overlooks Las Vegas, with awesome views, and at night, with everything all lit up, it's simply beautiful. The Skyloft itself is on 2 floors, and plenty of room for everyone. If you are going to Vegas to stay in first-class, then the Skylofts at the MGM Grand is the place to be.
How from 1 visit to the next things change, I'm assuming their new policy went into effect as of October 1st this year. The skyloft meant you paid the nightly rate and everything was included, you now pay the same nightly rate but everything is extra. Yes, they charge for the water now..next will be the coffee and the tea. At least if everything functioned properly it would be so back..but Wifi was iffy, control panels not working properly..I gave up trying to shutdown the TV in the bathroom. Is the MGM going to start charging to take their trams in the future. Stay tuned..
