FrontRunners: The High Life

<< Back to Robb Report, July 2005

The glistening Maybach 62 waiting at the airport is the first of many modern conveniences that will mark your stay at Skylofts (877.646.5638, www .skyloftsmgmgrand.com), a new hotel occupying the top floors of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Unlike MGM’s other upscale Vegas property—the stately, Old World–style Mansion—Skylofts is a sleek, contemporary hotel perched high above the Strip. Each of its 51 one-, two-, and three-bedroom lofts affords city views through two-story windows, and no fewer than five plasma televisions per loft (including some embedded in bathroom mirrors) ensure that you always have something to watch. Push-button remotes control your room’s TVs, thermostat, jukebox music system, drapes, mood lighting, and more. For tasks requiring additional effort, push a button to summon your personal butler, who is available 24 hours a day.
