If you want to be among the first to explore and adore its multifaceted amenities, then book soon. You can welcome back a vintage Vegas property that’s got a new lease on life as well as check out what’s sure to be a shining beacon of glitz and glamour (the 10,000-square-foot LED marquee will cost $5 million alone) at the north end of the Strip.

SLS Las Vegas will have more than 1,600 accommodations in three distinct hotel towers – Story, Lux and World – ranging in size from the 325-square-foot Story Superior King/Double rooms to the opulent 2,382-square-foot Lux Penthouse suites. All of them will feature sleek décors conceived by visionary designer Philippe Starck. Among the standard amenities are top-notch mattresses and linens, 55-inch HD TVs and Ciel Spa bath amenities. A signature Saints & Sinner Snack Box will also be waiting for you upon arrival.

SLS Las Vegas is officially scheduled to open on Aug. 29 – Sept. 1, 2014. That’s Labor Day weekend. Can you imagine a better last hurrah of summer than living it up at SLS Las Vegas?

And live it up you will. SBE has shelled out over $415 million to convert the former Sahara Hotel & Casino, which is located at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue, into SLS Las Vegas. There’s no doubt this company knows how to party in Sin City. The folks at SBE have already masterminded two Vegas hotspots: Hyde Bellagio and Double Barrel Roadhouse at Monte Carlo.

Among the latest news about SLS Las Vegas is the addition of LiFE. Joining the already impressive roster of nightlife options that will include The Sayers Club (which is among L.A.’s most exclusive live music venues), you can expect to get wet, soak up the sun and then party into the wee hours at this rooftop pool experience. Plus, there’s going to be a second daylife-meets-nightlife venue at the epicenter of the resort. Foxtail will boast a poolside lounge in the afternoon that will make way for a club atmosphere in the evening. Quick drinks to begin or end your night will be available at the Shot Bar.

SLS Las Vegas will also be home to a collection of palate-arousing restaurants. Showcased among the who’s who of culinary heavyweights are Katsuya by Starck, Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, Umami Burger, The Griddle Café, 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria and Cleo by Danny Elmaleh. In addition, you’ll be able to grab quick and easy artisanal fare for breakfast or dinner at The SLS Buffet.

So you say you want to shop as well as eat, swim and party? SLS Las Vegas has that covered too. Fred Segal, an L.A. fashion institution, is in command of 10,000 square feet of the property. The iconic retailer will curate seven different shopping experiences filled with a wide range of merchandise including women’s and men’s apparel, jewelry, beauty products, books, art and accessories. Fans of Fred Segal will also discover the signature “denim bar” at the resort.

Rounding out the offerings at SLS Las Vegas is Ciel Spa with 10 treatment rooms and the Frank and Leo Salon. Workout fanatics can stay energized in a state-of-the-art fitness center. And you’ll always be able to find a game to test your luck (from blackjack, roulette and craps tables to slot and video poker machines) in the 60,000-square-foot casino.

So the countdown is on! Aug. 25 is just over four months away. You can reserve a room at SLS Las Vegas right now through the resort’s official website. Of course, if accommodations should sell out, you can always book a room nearby on

I’m a Las Vegas native. By profession, I write at Mostly about the city’s hotels, but on other topics – gaming and transportation – too. I really love staying at hotels. And the ones here are among the biggest and best in the world. Some key things I’ve learned: Resort fees are inescapable (frustrating but true), a friendly attitude at the front desk may score you a great view and over-the-top room amenities – bath butlers, Japanese tea service, menus with “intimate” items – do exist. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m comfortable at a blackjack table. And I like eating late-night pancakes in hotel coffee shops. A lot. Follow Renee on Google+.
