Fodor's Expert Review SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino

2535 Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA See on Map

Each aspect of SLS Las Vegas – from the gaming floor to the hotel rooms – was conceptualized by renowned French designer Philippe Starck in collaboration with global design firm Gensler. Their expertise and cohesion shows through unexpected and interesting design choices.

Cozy rooms feature plush white comforters and extra seating. The crisp white color of the linens is contrasted with bold walls featuring either a dramatic wall detailing or bright yellow paint and an industrial-inspired ceiling, depending on which of the two towers you stay in. An abundance of mirrors keeps the smaller space feeling spacious.

In the World Tower, sleek white countertops and stainless steel create an inviting modern space. In the Story Tower, an atypical room layout makes it feel like there is barely a bathroom at all.

YOU SHOULD KNOW In the Story Tower King room especially, the sink feels like it is part of the sleeping area and two sliding-mirrored doors hide the toilet and shower.


Like every other aspect of the hotel, the lobby is beautifully furnished and contemporary.


Two pools offer markedly different experiences. Foxtail Pool is family-friendly (though there is a full-service bar) and great for lounging. Retro Pool Lounge on the roof is only for those 21+ and offers a more intimate setting.

Guests and locals receive complimentary admission, so chat up some strangers and you may get some insider knowledge or recommendations.


Spa treatments for single individuals and couples are available at AWAY Spa, located on the second floor of W Las Vegas.


A 24-hour fitness center is located on the second level of the Story Tower. It offers cardio and weight training equipment as well as free weights. It doesn’t feel state of the art, but it doesn’t feel as cramped as other hotel gyms.

It is difficult to miss Center Bar with its massive LED lighting fixture overheard. Located amid the action of the gaming floor, the full-service bar offers hand-crafted specialty cocktails and shots.


Getting Around

The SLS is only a 13-minute walk to its Las Vegas Strip neighbor, Circus Circus. However, because there’s not much of note between the two, the walk isn’t as pleasant and may feel longer or uncomfortable. Consider a taxi or rideshare when heading to other properties. Luckily, those are abundant in the city.


You're in Las Vegas! There is no shortage of dining options, especially at other Strip properties.


Again -- you're in Las Vegas! There is no shortage of drinking options, so check out the Strip or nearby Downtown Las Vegas.


A bold, sleek design aesthetic and a scrumptious assortment of dining options make this hotel a standout.
