Sweet Little Staycation | SLS Las Vegas
This weekend I had a “Sweet Little Staycation” courtesy of SLS Las Vegas. The SLS Bevery Hills is one of my favorite boutique hotels so I was excited to experience the new location as a guest, and not just a passerby as I have in the past. Out of the three towers, each with distinct looks and all designed by Philippe Starck, my room was located in the World Tower. All in all I had a really enjoyable stay, although the SLS Las Vegas does fall short of the expectations set by its Beverly Hills counterpart. Details below…
The bed was comfortable as was the layout of the room. The rooms are far less luxe as the rooms in Beverly Hills and the overall design of the hotel isn’t as playful as I had hoped for, but I can see ways in which they tried and that isn’t to say that the hotel isn’t fun to be in.
I always sleep better in hotels, but the fact that I slept past 9am was amazing. Also just to note that my final day I slept in ’till 1pm, when standard check out is at 11am. I wasn’t abruptly awoken by the cleaning service nor was I charged for late check-out which is always nice.
You can tell that the hotel really made an effort to incorporate “Old Vegas” into its Sahara redesign. The casino carpet pays homage to the old Sahara, and the desk in the room was designed with an old-school style map of the city.
Although I didn’t have time to enjoy the CIEL Spa & Fitness Center, I did find that the provided toiletries were of surprisingly good quality for a hotel. I do prefer the design of the SLS Beverly Hills products, though… they offer full sized products with a more unique aesthetic.

SLS Las Vegas boasts one megaclub (LiFE), two live music nightclubs (Foxtail, Sayers Club) and two lobby bars (Monkey Bar, Center Bar). I didn’t make it to any during this staycation but having been to all in the past, I can say that Foxtail is my favorite for its cool, James Bond feel. Also, these two facing mirrors create this great infinity mirror photo-op for the #mirrorselfieenthusiast’s (like my Alice).
All of the restaurants in the hotel are one with the hotel. This means that instead of having a seemingly disconnected food court, you get a variety of restaurants that you can get delivered to your room!!!! It seems like such a smart idea, yet I don’t know of any other hotel that provides this service. Nobu Hotel won’t even deliver from Nobu Restaurant downstairs. Makes no sense. So, I ordered from 800 Degrees Pizzeria which is right in the casino. This is the Tartufo (truffle cheese, arugula, mushrooms, add prosciutto) with a side caesar salad. Isn’t it so sad when a pizza doesn’t truly deliver? Meaning- it was soggy in the center and way too rich to eat. It ended up being wasted, but I still feel confident in their total room service delivery policy.
Unrelated: The rooms provide great lighting for selfies. Find me on the gif photo app PHHHOTO to see more of what I’m up to, @ellekae.
Monkeys everywhere- even on the staff uniforms; I love it.
Where do you like to stay in Las Vegas? Heres a Sin City tip: Make sure you get a players card at every casino you want to gamble at. You can earn free hotel stays, dinners, spa days, and (if you’re a serious gambler) free airfare too. If you’re like me and aren’t a big gambler, you can stay active with casinos on social media accounts for special offers.
