SLS Las Vegas has revamped their website and revealed some interesting facts about their casino that have us excited for its opening at the end of summer.
Last year, we relayed Sam Nazarian's vision for the SLS sportsbook. He mentioned that it would be operated by an outside company, later revealed as William Hill. He also said that it wouldn’t be a traditional sportsbook, rather it would be a combination sportsbook and bar/restaurant. A place to grab a beer and a burger while watching the game you just bet on. Now, we know the sportsbook will be attached to Umami Burger and a beer garden. Add in some 50 TVs and the concept sounds great. We can’t wait to see it in action!
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:
When it comes to Future Vegas, if we're not talking about The Cromwell, we're talking about SLS Las Vegas. Both resorts will debut this year after complete top-to-bottom makeovers. And, just like we can't help but to think of Bill's and Barbary Coast when it comes to The Cromwell, we just can't quit Sahara when we hear something about SLS.

It’s not about creating another Vegas nightclub; it’s about fostering a movement that rebels against the one-dimensional norm that has come to define nightlife. For far too long, the party has been about just the entertainment and LiFE defies that convention, knowing the real essence of the party is its people.
With reservations set to open April 8 for SLS Las Vegas, we're now being allowed a better look at some of the accommodations to come. A website revamp for parent company sbe features a room photo gallery as well as new details regarding the re-imagined Sahara hotel.
When SLS debuts Labor Day weekend, it will feature more than 1,600 accommodations. (Someone tell Mr. Pappagiorgio to watch out because some are apparently being designed by Lenny Kravitz.) The renovated resort will also offer:

From Sahara down to Tropicana, things continue to change on The Strip. On one end, SLS Las Vegas is painting the
town towers. On the other, Double Barrel Roadhouse will debut in a matter of days. Here's a quick look at where things stand on the Strip (photos taken on Sunday, March 2):
SLS Las Vegas (formerly Sahara)
Opening: Labor Day Weekend
Before year's end, we should have three new hotels -- The Cromwell, SLS Las Vegas and Delano Las Vegas -- to explore. And, we should be able to test the waters at two new pools with their debuts, fingers crossed.
Delano, which is taking over and transforming THEhotel, will share the already established pool offerings of big sis, Mandalay Bay, but SLS and Cromwell will both bring entirely new pool scenes to the city. We don't know what is in store at either just yet aside from beautiful babies and luxe cabanas, obvi, but -- based solely on their renderings and locales, which pool would you rather?

Fall has been the long-stated target for the arrival of the SLS Las Vegas, but now it's ready to get a lot more specific.
Reps just posted their intentions to open the renovated and re-imagined resort on Labor Day Weekend on the SLS Las Vegas blog. (Labor Day is September 1.)
The photo above snapped by photographer Greg Clarke shows the state of exterior construction as of a few days ago. SLS, formerly the Sahara, will offer 1,600 rooms and suites, a casino, and a range of nightlife and dining experiences as well as retail offerings by Fred Segal.
The Sahara closed on May 16, 2011.
Checking back up on the SLS Las Vegas led a VegasChatter reader to do some poking around of his own.
Tim K. of Germany (holla!) emailed us today after finding an SLS convention sales sheet featuring a rendering of one of the guest rooms to come. Check it out:

If you thought last year saw a lot of highly anticipated openings in Vegas, that was nothing. This year will most definitely top that. From the debut of a world record-setting attraction to even more new hotel concepts, 2014 is going to be another incredible year for Las Vegas. Here are the 10 openings we consider the biggest game changers of the year ahead:
1. The High Roller (Opening: March?)
It's the tallest observation wheel in. the. world. And, it's just a short walk off The Strip. You had a good run, all other Vegas attractions.
2. SLS Las Vegas (Opening: fall)
We lost the Sahara, but will we gain a revived north Strip with the debut of SLS? What happens here will make or further break not just this property, but an entire neighborhood.

Things have been fairly quiet on the SLS Las Vegas front with the PR drip system set to keep it in the headlines every few weeks or so. December saw an announcement that Hollywood outpost Cleo would join the resort's restaurant lineup, news of its $5 million LED system and the addition of a new executive to its fold as well as a carefully chosen interview or two.
Still touting a debut of this fall, the site of the old Sahara continues its slow metamorphosis. VegasChatter friend and Sin City shutterbug, Greg Clarke, recently captured new images of the progress and shared them with us for this post.
