    Hi,

    Im lookin for a new hotel for the next few weeks..

    I've been stayin at the MGM skylofts before and the service was perfect.

    Staying at the Cosmo wrap around suites right now but unfortunately even tho the room is pretty much perfect the service just sucks asss in here...

    Is there any comparable places to stay like the skylofts or is it the only place to go to get this sort of attention?

    Also Im not usually paying for the hotel since i'm pretty much comped all the time, if that makes any difference!

    cheers

    as far as that level of service, the only places comparable or better than the Skylofts are the Bellagio Villas, Aria Sky Villas, Wynn Fairway Villas or MGM Mansion. V/P also has some type of Villas accommodations, but i'm not familiar with those.

    talk to your host at MGM about getting in the Mansion instead of the Skylofts this trip.

    This is a shame, I've read so many reviews from people that just aren't happy with the level of service from the Cosmo, we've stayed in a salon suite at Bellagio and loved it! of course it doesn't compare with the skylofts or the villas at Bellagio, we were very happy with it though.

    no, the Sky Suites are not comparable to the Skylofts at all in terms of service. only the Sky Villas have butlers, etc.

    your best bet by far at that level of play is the Skylofts. just can't be beat.

    They have a wide range of suites at Bellagio. Salone for you would of course be at the low end. Then a few floors with private elevators. Wonderful suites that face the fountains. Then the Villas of course - which you indicate are a bit out of range.

    At that level, it would be good to call a host at Aria, Bellagio and ask what they can do based on your play.

    By the way, based on the thread title, I was expecting this to be he 3 times a week new thread about best hotel for a "regular" visitor. You would probably have gotten more replies is a more descriptive title.

    When you say service sucks ass at Cosmo.. does that mean its not as good as the Skylofts or a place like the Mansion. Its kinda of misleading to people when you say service is bad, but it may not really be. Its just not to the standards of lets say the top top service of places such as the Mansion.

    I stayed at a reg room at Cosmo this weekend. I ordered room service 2 times. Once at 4am and other at 5:30am. Arrived within 20 min. Both times the food was hot, and it was excellent as far as bringing it in and preparing it to eat. I was offered water bottle each time I got my car from Valet and both at check in and check out. Check in was quick(Platinum line) and got my keys within 5min. It maybe little stuff, but the service was good for what I asked for. Room was made promptly as I asked them to at 6pm as thats when I asked them to come back. I'm just confused on how others get treated when my stay was pretty good. I wasnt expecting them to unpack my bags or have a butler to. My stay was no complaints at all.

    I am such a low roller that it would be a dream come true for me to stay at the Skylofts or Mansion. I was just thrilled to find the Mansion from the outside.

    I might have been unlucky and i know its a "first world problem" but still if ur staying at a 5 star resort you expect some decent service..

    problems includet
    - not cleaning the room after i called to get it cleaned (two days in a row)
    - ordered vodka which took one hour to arrive. obviously no shot glasses in the room (only 2 long drink glasses - wtf?) so i called again to get some shot glasses sent up. they told me it will cost 1$ a glass.. which is pretty to ridicolous to even ask (after you usually spend 500$+ for the room and 200$ for the vodka). then after one hour they bring two shot glasses (i ordered 10) and tell me they dont have more?!
    - telephone not working in bedroom and not fixed after 3 days, even tho i asked for it
    - have to wait in line before your call gets trough (to pretty much every department).. feel like im in a call centre..

    anyway they told me i would get a butler tomorrow as i did ma brains today @ the blackjacks so it might turn out well.. lets see :)

    That doesn't sound like bad service, that sounds like no service. For that kind of place, there should be no problems whatsoever. I've only stayed at 3.5-4 star places on the strip and never service problems like that. Good luck.

    I was put up at the Cosmo last year. The cleaning lacked severely. The shower drained into the hallway. No internet. The door wouldn't lock. When my wife called to complain, they hung up on her. Called back to speak to the manager and was told "No" (apparently the front desk staff didn't realize that I could contact the hotel manager without going through them). After that, they moved us up to one of the wrap around suites. That was a very nice room, but I'll never go back.
