We ended up in Vegas again.
We stayed at the MGM Skyloft.
The Skyloft is located in the MGM Grand on the top 29th floor.
The options are:
1 Bedroom 1,500 sq ft
2 Bedroom 3,000 sq ft
3 Bedroom 6,000 sq ft
Here are pics and some of the perks you get while staying at the Skyloft.
Perk: You get complimentary transportation to and from the airport.
Not in just a limo but a custom Maybach 62 Limo.
The Maybach limo fits 4 or less and you only get it if it is available at the time or arrival.
If you have a bigger party than 4 then you get picked up in a stretched limo.
They greet you either outside your arrival gate or at the baggage claim area. They will be holding a sign with your name on it. What a way to start the trip.
We were fortunate enough to get the Maybach.
TVs, Analog temp, speedometer, and clock.
No limo tint here. It's got curtains.
The seats fully reclines like a Lazy-Boy.
They drop you off at a separate entrance lobby. It's a small room that is very tastefully decorated. The lobby is where you go to get a taxi or setup for limo transportation. You don't have to wait in the regular taxi line of the hotel.
Once you walk through the entrance lobby your in the MGM main lobby where you would usually check in for your regular rooms and suites. We were escorted to a separate concierge room and to a private elevator (perk). The elevator requires your key card to allow you access to the 29th floor.
This is what it looks like when you reach the 29th floor.
Through the doors there is a small concierge desk.
The Hallway to our room.
Our front door.
Instead of a peep hole we have a security view screen on the door. Hold down the button and you can see who's on the other side. There is also a door bell too. So you don't have to knock.
We were escorted to the room and they had some small sweets set out upon our arrival. Usually there is a box with assorted fresh berries but this time we got tuxedo strawberries.
some other sweets on the coffee table.
We got the 2 bedroom loft. In the loft you either get a Foosball table or a pool table.
In the game room there is an ipod dock and a TV. There is practically a flat screen TV in all of the rooms.
One of the living rooms with a sectional sofa and some nice mood/accent lights
Here's the same living room with it's TV and Bang & Olufsen surround sound system. The whole loft is equipped with it.
A close up of the decorative moss they had on the table.
Here's another lounge/ living room area.
I don't know what to call this. Maybe a breakfast nook?
Another TV in the nook.
Did I mention that all Lofts are 2 stories? That's why there is such a high ceiling.
This is the 3rd lounge/living room area.
perk: All lofts are also equipped with and espresso machine. Some assorted coffee for your pleasure and it's all complementary.
Our dining room
There were 3 now there is 1.
A small beverage fridge.
perk: all non-alcoholic beverages are complimentary.
Ours had Voss Water (glass bottle) coke, diet coke, sprite, tonic, club soda, redbull, and fresh Skyloft specialty drink . I think it's fresh cantaloupe, OJ, and other fruit juices mixed. They refill our fridge once a day but you can always ask for more whenever.
The alcoholic stuff is an extra charge. I think we had some Champagne & beer in the fridge. On the top we had Goose, Patron, Whisky, and rum.
Our dining table

Some windows that look into the upstairs master bedroom

To the left of the Foyer is the dining room.
From the top of the stairs looking down.
Once atop the stairs the right side is the master bedroom.
Left side is the guest room
I have stayed at the Skyloft several times and some lofts have a slightly different layout.
In the master bedroom is a Lounge/Therapy chair
Everything is the Skyloft can be purchased. You just have to ask the front desk. When I mean everything I mean everything. The statue, the moss, TV, whatever. I purchased that orange blanket.
Window from the master bedroom looking down in the breakfast nook
King sized bed. They normally do a turn down service in the evening. They leave a flower and a card with an inspirational message on it. They set your robe on the bed and slippers by your bed.
Master bedroom's TV and Bang and Olufsen Surround sound system.
Double sink and there's a TV in the mirror. You can see the square cut out in the mirror.
perk:All of the toiletries in the loft are Bvlgari: soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, everything.
The infinity tub. The tub has mood lights in it. The water flows over the edge and is recycled back into the tub. It does not have jacuzzi jets but instead produces what they call champagne bubbles and it literally is like bathing in a tub or champagne bubbles.
You can buy the tub too but it will set you back over $10k. I'm not kidding.
Kohler Sok Tub
Toilet room and shower. The master shower has 4 body jets, a hand held shower nozzle, a rain shower head, and steamer. You can turn them all on at the same time. The shower will fit about 5-7 people easy. Why that big? Just because they can. There's also a wooden bench in there to sit and chill if you want.
another TV in the bathroom for your viewing pleasure when your in the tub.
The guest room has 2 queens
all rooms and living rooms have this remote. It controls everything.
TV, Climate, drapes, XM Radio, IPod, Lights, DVD, and CD.
all of the windows have drapes and black out drapes. Black out drapes are just solid black drapes.
The drapes black out the sunlight from the windows so that you can sleep during the day.
TV and B&O surround sound, and DVD/CD player.
perk: All the movies are free. When I mean all I mean all. If you know what I mean.
Guest room walkin closet.
The other walkin closet
guest bathroom also has the Kohler tub. You can't see it but there is a TV flushed into the wall by the towels so you can watch a movie while soaking.
Guest bath shower. Overhead rain shower, hand held shower, and 4 body shower jets. No steamer for the guest bath but it has the wooden bench.
Pic of the overhead shower
Some branches for decoration.
view from our loft.
Perk: You can order from any of the MGM owned restaurants for in room dining. We had Craftsteak. You can't order from Emeril's.
8oz Angus Flat Iron
Kobe Style Wagyu Beef: 8oz Flat Iron.
Now you see it. Now you don't.
The food was Fantastic. I am not a big steak person. Tends to be too much protein for me, but the Ribeye was awesome. The only reason I didn't finish it was because we were heading out to The Bank Nightclub @ Bellagio. I didn't want to see my meal later.
If your looking to do a special occasion for a big party. The Skyloft is definate. It is reasonably priced in my opinion.
Here are the perks that I can remember:
-Limo transportation too and from airport
-Complimentary non-alcoholic beverage (unlimited)
-Free in room movies
-Pool Table or Foosball Table (unsure on the 1 bedroom)
-XM radio in every room
-In room dining from any of the MGM owned restaurants
-priority seats for shows and restaurants at the MGM
-Personal Concierge (this alone branches off to alot of other perks)
1) pressed our clothes
2) offered video games in the loft (we declined)
3) Got us on the Guest list to XS Nightclub at the last minute too. (We were told that gueslist was for females only but they got us on)
4) They even offered to get us McDonalds when we went out for a very late night snack.
There are alot of things the concierge can do for you. It's something new everytime. They brought up a cake last time we were there for my brother's birthday. We didn't even ask them. They found out and just brought it up.
There are so many perks that I can't even think of it all. For the price it is well worth it.
Next post is going to be about The Bank Nightclub. I will never go back to that place again. Read about it on my upcoming post.
