Imagine dropping into Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole: this is the sleek, textured, and tchotke-filled lobby of the SLS from design maestro Philippe Starck. Hotel guests enter into the edgy Tres Lounge, which encourages socializing with its fireplaces, hidden nooks, and a communal table for cocktails and dining. Visual stimulation ranges from the succulents garden in oversize pots and white leather couches out front to the elevators backed with oversize portraits. Rooms have crisp, fine linens, and high-tech sound and video systems built into the mirrors. There's atmosphere, photo-ready spots (the rooftop pool is a scene), and dining by celebrated Spanish chef José Andrés. Forward-thinking amenities abound: gym equipment is stellar, each room has a fully stocked bar, and the Ciel spa feels like a dreamy lounge.

The room was large and the beds were comfortable. I loved the TV behind a large floor to ceiling mirror. The bathroom is large and the products to use were excellent. Beware, some are no charge and others are for purchase. Each floor had a different lobby space and the decor was very interesting and unusual. The outdoor lobby has a fireplace several sofas and plenty of books for you to enjoy. The hotel employees went above and beyond when it came
to service. The general manager came over to introduced himself and we sat and chatted for a little while. It was close to everything we wanted to do and see. I would definately would stay there again.
