I’ve been so busy lately with work, meetings and planning new things that these back to back mini getaways I’ve been taking have come at the best time. This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of partnering with SBE to experience the super grand opening of their luxurious SLS Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
Although not a huge fan of Las Vegas, I do enjoy escaping for a random weekend getaway once in awhile. For the grand opening of the SLS however, things were 10x better while in Vegas this time around. We never left the hotel once all weekend… yep, we enjoyed the whole weekend indoors at their pools (yes they have two awesome pools- Foxtail + Beach LiFE!), dined at a couple of their award-winning restaurants, did a little fun shopping at Fred Segal, checked out the casino and of course danced the night away at the uber cool LiFE club.
The vibe is definitely a lot cooler, younger, hipper than most of the other hotels + casinos in Las Vegas which I loved. The thing I don’t like about Vegas is how cheesy it can be, how it can feel overwhelming in those giant hotels/casinos because they’re just too big, and how you have to jump from hotel to hotel to enjoy different things like clubs or restaurants. SLS felt completely different, the opposite for sure. It felt more like a luxurious boutique hotel with a much more upbeat, playful sophisticated vibe; it was a one-stop hotel. Definitely 10x better that what I’m used to in Vegas.
We had a packed itinerary to really explore the hotel all weekend long which was great to see firsthand. From the first day of the grand opening that entailed a grandeur party that lasted from 7pm to the crack of dawn (Iggy Azelea, Rita Ora and Lenny Kravitz all performed that night-whoa!) to the opening of their sexy hotel LiFE to sitting pool side at their chic pinstripe cabanas while we sipped champagne, to eating at their famous restaurants like Cleo, Bazaar Meat or Katsuya. In the mornings, we either had delicious pancakes at The Griddle Cafe (an L.A. favorite btw) or The Perq- a super cute joint with gourmet coffee and fresh pastries!
It was a fun filled weekend that I was very happy to be a part of. It is definitely going to make my Vegas trips a lot more pleasurable to stay in and I wouldn’t mind taking trips there more often now.
Take a peek at what my weekend getaway at the SLS Hotel & Casino Las Vegas looked like! See you at the SLS Vegas soon!
