1. The SkyLOFTS at MGM Grand
Sitting on top of the MGM Grand casino and hotel are the SkyLOFTS. These are easily some of the nicest “room” that you can rent in Las Vegas. Actually, they aren’t really rooms, rather they are luxurious, multi-level loft apartments that you can rent. These exclusive lofts offer the highest amounts of luxury that one could ask for. MGM calls it a “luxury boutique hotel experience”.
These lofts are absolutely insane, and are easily the nicest accommodations that you can receive when you come to Las Vegas. Some of the more expensive lofts even come with their own plunge pool that is located outside on the expansive balcony. The smallest loft available is 1,400 square feet with the largest one being an insane 6,000 square feet. These are nicer than where most people live. If you have the money to afford the SkyLOFTS, then there really are no other options.
