Las Vegas. The go-to place to blow off steam, relax, enjoy and unwind. The beauty of Las Vegas is that you can organize your visit on the cheap or you can splash out in style. And if it's the latter you're looking for, then the immediate and obvious choice is the SKYLOFTS at the MGM Grand.

The SKYLOFTS — 51 in all — are designed by master architect Tony Chi and encapsulate everything you could possibly want in a sleek, private loft-style sanctuary. The elegant two-story accommodations encompass the top two floors of the MGM Grand and rise high above the Las Vegas strip.

Sophisticated and stylish, each loft has spectacular views of the Vegas skyline from every conceivable angle, thanks to the lofts' 24-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can choose between one, two or three-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 1,400 to 6,000 square feet, and prices from $800 to $10,000 per night. The price tag reflects the level of personalized service, extraordinary amenities and complete privacy afforded to guests. Those choosing to stay at SKYLOFTS have their own entrance to their secluded pad via a private elevator.

SKYLOFTS boasts custom designed remote controls to operate the TV, DVD, radio, drapes, temperature and lighting. Custom-designed Bang & Olufsen and Sony HDTV audio-visual equipment are integrated within each suite, along with 32" LCD monitors at every tub, and televisions placed behind the mirror in each bathroom. The lofts also have separate dining and living rooms downstairs while the grand master suite is located on the second level. The bathrooms are also a whole entity unto themselves, complete with infinity tubs with “champagne bubble” massage functions and oversized showers with accompanying steam rooms, simulated waterfalls, mist and rain, offset by spectacular views of Las Vegas.

Focusing on personalized service, SKYLOFTS also provides concierge calls to all guests prior to arrival, as well as a 24-hour butler service, complimentary electronic devices including laptop PC rental, printer/scanner/fax machine, and DVD and CD library rental.

And a trip to Vegas wouldn't be complete without great tickets to amazing shows. All guests at the SKYLOFTS receive preferred seating at performances including Cirque du Soleil, Crazy Horse Paris and the Hollywood Theatre. The same service is provided for the strip's world class restaurants, including Joel Robuchon, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon and Nobhill.
