Whatever the reason for your stay (slots, food, nightlife, business, all of the above), you’ll never run out of things to do and see right outside your door at Skylofts at MGM Grand.
The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star luxury hotel within a hotel means you have access to the massive universe of MGM Grand. This includes dining options that run the gamut from the Five-Star Joël Robuchon to the popular Craftsteak; an always-hopping pool complex; popular shows such as Cirque du Soleil’s KA; a dizzying amount of nightlife options; the lion habitat and much more — not to mention the massive casino space.
Las Vegas’ other well-known hotels — and their popular attractions — are also within walking distance. Take a gondola through the canals at the nearby Venetian or take a 50-story elevator ride up to the open-air observation desk of the Eiffel Tower replica at Paris Las Vegas. From there you’ll have a spectacular view of the Fountains of Bellagio, which feature a choreographed water show every 15 to 30 minutes.
Kids will love the roller coaster at New York-New York, which isn’t just a gimmick; the ride travels at up to 70 miles per hour. A trip to Adventuredome, the largest indoor amusement park in the United States, at nearby Circus Circus, is also a must if you’re traveling with kids, or even if you’re not.
Finally, what’s a trip to Las Vegas without a little shopping? We recommend Crystals at City Center for more than your garden variety upscale shopping (think: Tom Ford and Marni); the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace for lots of high-end fashion mixed with trendy fashions at stores like H+M (the largest one in the country); and Fashion Show, which includes practically every (good) store known to mankind, including seven department stores (Neiman’s, Saks). It’s a shopper’s dream.
