Skylofts at MGM Grand, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel atop the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, is known for its cool style and attention to personalized detail. If you’re considering a stay at the boutique hotel, here are four things to note:
1. The lofts are well-equipped for parties. The lofts are a great place to throw a private party Vegas-style or host a business meeting — at 1,400 square feet, even the smallest lofts provide plenty of space and come equipped with a dining table for eight and a separate seating area. The in-room dining menu has great snacks for parties — including chicken wings, pizza and vegetable crudités. The lofts also feature amenities such as surround sound and a private bar that’s restocked twice daily.
2. You might not be able to leave the bathroom during your stay. The bathroom is among the best we’ve ever seen, with limestone floors and a shower that doubles as a steam room. Our favorite amenity is the whirlpool-style infinity tub — the water flows over the sides and then rises back to the top, with champagne bubbles emerging from the jets. You can ask your personal butler to draw a “dream bath” with water scents that range from ocean to lemongrass sage to green tea.
3. You can access amenities at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Because the Five-Star Skylofts is a hotel within a hotel, there are a few amenities you may not be able to find inside Skylofts itself, but you can certainly access at MGM Grand. For example, Skylofts doesn’t have a pool, but guests have complimentary access to the MGM Grand Pool Complex, which features five pools, a lazy river and private cabanas, as well as Wet Republic, the MGM Grand’s club pool with a sundeck and DJs.
4. You won’t find a restaurant at Skylofts. Skylofts doesn’t have its own restaurants but guests are a short walk from the specialty and casual dining options at MGM Grand. A few restaurants — such as Craftsteak and FiAmma — also offer dinner through Skylofts’ in-room menu. The regular in-room dining menu is also very good.
