With a debut set for late this year, we should begin to see increased progress at the site of Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops.

A check of the construction site earlier today found that the steel framework for the outdoor mall is starting to take shape. Caesars Entertainment completely erased Bally's Strip-facing frontage, including its fountains and non-moving sidewalk, so that 150 shops and eateries could be installed. If you've not seen the renderings yet for what's to come, you can view them here.

What About The Monorail Station at SLS?

April 18, 2014 at 9:23 PM | by | Comments (12)

While SLS Las Vegas will be known for its clubs, restaurants and, perhaps, its casino, it's easy to forget the coming-soon resort will also boast 80,000 square feet of "flexible event sites."

As much as it's being thought of as a party resort, SLS Las Vegas will also take care of business with 30,000 of dedicated meeting space and a 9,000 square foot ballroom. (The rest of the 80,000 number will be provided through the many venues that can serve dual purposes like its restaurants and clubs.)

You Can Now Book A Room At SLS Las Vegas

April 7, 2014 at 11:54 PM | by | Comments (11)

The main SLS website doesn't yet list Las Vegas on its booking engine, but that doesn't mean you can't reserve a room at the coming soon resort.

SLS Las Vegas recently announced a partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts and it is now accepting reservations for dates beginning Monday, August 25 and beyond through the Preferred website. We took the booking process all the way to the point of entering a credit card with no issues so if you're interested, book fast.

A check of rates for August 25 revealed the lowest to be a starting price of $149 for a World Superior King. (Towers seem to have been redubbed Lux, World and Story.) A World Superior Double and a World Superior King - High Floor both begin at $159 while a World Superior Double - High Floor was $10 more. No other room options are listed for the 25th nor the 26th. That changes on Wednesday, August 27 when Lux and Story accommodations are added to the mix. A Lux Deluxe King begins at $239 while a Story Superior King is at $159. Suites begin at $309 and go up to a starting rate of $499. Only a limited selection of rooms were listed as available for the resort's opening weekend.

4.8 Update: You can now book a stay at SLS Las Vegas directly via slslasvegas.com. Reservations are being accepted for August 25 and beyond. Reserve a room by month's end to take advantage of a special opening rates of $109/midweek and $139/weekends. The special requires a two-night minimum stay and is valid for select dates between September 1 and December 27.

As noted, higher floors will come at a premium as will, apparently, corner rooms and pool views. A resort fee is listed at $25, however, no inclusions were cited.

Each room will feature WiFi as well as a "Sleep Lying Still BeautyRest Mattress and 310-thread count linens exclusive to SLS Hotel & Casino, Samsung® 55-inch televisions, and Ciel Spa amenities."

Towers are described as follows:

With a May 21 opening date fast approaching, The Cromwell is finally starting to look like it will actually make that deadline.

That gaping hole on the second floor earmarked for Giada De Laurentiis' eponymous restaurant now sports a newly placed facade while The Cromwell's name -- with a purple-hued emphasis on "well" -- has been hung on the property's east-facing frontage along with its logo.

Future Cromwell.

Total Rewards members eager to be one of the first to reserve a room at The Cromwell can now do so. In theory, at least. VegasChatter reader John N. just let us know that he can now view room rates, but that he was also presented with a broken image file and a non-functioning link. If you've had better luck, let us know.

Vdara's Spa Receives An Upgrade

Where: 2600 W Harmon Ave [map], 89158
February 19, 2014 at 4:11 PM | by | Comments (0)

How long has it been since you visited Vdara, that oh-so-mellow (non-smoking and casino-free) resort and spa tucked away behind Aria? We don’t hear very much about Vdara (aside from those endless "death ray" jokes), probably because all of the guests are in aromatherapy trances. You see, Vdara's spa was recently acquired by ESPA. This rebranding has brought the ESPA spa line and operating philosophy to the existing facility, focusing on the high-end products and services the company has become famous for (in other parts of the world, that is).

The rumors were true.

Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon (formerly Barbary Coast and almost Gansevoort Las Vegas) will be The Cromwell now until the end of time (or it's changed again.. whichever comes first).

Good news, people. In case you hadn't heard, we don't need to remember that the name of MGM Grand's cafe, Avenue 24, isn't literal, anymore.
