Vegas: A Weekend

Skylofts at MGM Grand on Black Tie Stiletto Blog I have avoided Las Vegas for years. The passe' tagline "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas", the casinos, and the over priced and over hyped nightlife. It all seemed indifferent to me. I was mistaken. A group of us ventured to Las Vegas for a birhtday weekend and to experience. I was blown away. The luxury, the style, and the overall shock and awe is amazing to behold. It is similar to swallowing too much and gasping. We decided if we were going to do Vegas, we will do it properly. We stayed at Skylofts at the MGM Grand (Danke Schoen Miss Sassy for the accommodations). From the valet to the private concierges, butler, and lavish abode, luxury welcomed us with open arms. Two living areas with contemporary L-shaped sofas, plush chairs and coffee table, breakfast nook with espresso machine, kitchen with wine and beverage fridge, theater room with 50" flat screen and free movies on demand. The master bedroom and guest bedroom features spacious walk-in closets, infinity soaker tubs, steam shower and two tvs ( one in the mirror and one over the tub). All controlled from a touch panel or wireless remote controlling everything from drapes, lights, tv, and climate. You can spend a week at the MGM alone and not want for anything from entertainment to eats. When you do venture out to the strip, it is a collage of massive jaw dropping architecture, lights, and endless adventures. All without dropping one coin in a slot machine. Now if gambling is your thing, then of course, you can break the bank at Caesar's Palace or walk the footsteps of the movie "21" and bust at blackjack at Planet Hollywood. Shop yourself into oblivion in the Palazzo at the Venetian or check out a fight at Mandalay Bay. I was impressed, overwhelmed, punch drunk, and enchanted by the city of lights and it's grandness. I usually don't like to admit I'm wrong, but "What happens in Vegas, is Everything".
