Let me start off this review by stating that my boyfriend and I are avid Las Vegas travelers, and this was our 6th trip to vegas in 5 years. We have stayed at many of the "main strip" hotels, and have never had the level of service and attentiveness that we received at SLS.
We arrived very late at night on a Thursday after driving in from Arizona, we were exhausted to say the least. Check-in was an absolute breeze, and the women at the front desk were extremely helpful, and quite honestly made us feel like valued guests, as opposed to one in a million like the other casinos on the strip.
Now on to the room. What else can I say but they are abssolutely amazing, and one of a kind. We have never stayed in a room as updated as the room (Lux Tower Suite) at the SLS. Now, we also haven't stayed at Cosmo, or Aria, because, quite frankly, those prices are ridiculous.
There are both positives and negatives to this hotel/room. I think I'm mostly sad the Sahara was torn down but there's nothing I can do about that now. This very boutique hotel is cool, for the most part. We got a groupon for the weekend and it comes with some drinks but we never got them--will talk to front desk later. The concierge room was cool with frosted glasses and lovely furniture. Our room was in the story tower; think New York loft. The rooms are TINY.
