W Hotels Worldwide, now part of Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR), has made its much anticipated Las Vegas debut with the opening of W Las Vegas on 1st December 2016. W transformed a 289-room tower of SLS Las Vegas, providing guests a brand new elevated hotel-within-a-hotel experience, located on the emerging North End of the Vegas Strip.
“If there are two things in this world that were truly made for each other, it’s W Hotels and Las Vegas,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “After nearly two decades of anticipation, W Las Vegas will show guests a different side of the strip, offering an unexpected and irreverent twist on the typical Sin City experience.”
Built by PENTA Building Group designed by Gensler in collaboration with AvroKO Hospitality Group, guests arrive at the Welcome Desk and are invited into the brand’s signature Living Room to mix and mingle. Evoking a sense of Vegas glamour, the Living Room bar was inspired by casino gaming tables, while intimate seating nooks nod to the hotel’s original mid-century incarnation as the Sahara. Behind the bar, a neon art “desert garden” by artist Keith Lemley dramatically transforms the space from day to night.
Bold and energetic, the 289 rooms at W Las Vegas were
designed by Philippe Starck in collaboration with Gensler.
Each room features a cheeky interpretation of luxury hospitality that Starck is known for, as well as the signature W bedding and sumptuous Bliss® bath amenities. Decidedly chic, the hotel’s 2,382 square foot Extreme WOW Suite (designed by multi-talented artist Lenny Kravitz) adorns the top of the tower, and is highlighted by a spacious balcony with sweeping mountain views.
W Las Vegas remixes an iconic address with three floors (and 15,000 square feet) of brand new, state-of-the-art meeting and event space. The adjacent SLS Las Vegas hotel serves up an additional 80,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, to play host to any size event.
The rooftop WET Deck is an elite oasis for guests, providing an intimate escape to see and be seen in a private cabana or at the destination bar. Maximizing its North Strip location, the WET Deck offers panoramic views of the Stratosphere and desert mountains. Art from local and international muralists and photographers converge to make the space truly unique. The AWAY® Spa, located on the hotel’s second floor, offers signature spa treatments for guests to detox (before a welcomed retox). Designed in pure white, playful elements such as l
arge faux-pearl key rings, lockers featuring bright pink interiors, and artful hand sculptures, add a touch of whimsy. FIT, the 24-hour fitness center at W Las Vegas, offers guests access to state-of-the-art fitness equipment in an energetic space.
Guests of W Las Vegas are able to indulge in award-winning restaurants throughout SLS Las Vegas. The property boasts seven eateries, including on-site coffee shop The Perq; Northside Café & Chinese Kitchen which is available 24 hours a day; Bazaar Meat by José Andrés; Katsuya; Cleo; 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria; and Umami Burger, Beer Garden& Sports Book.
The most coveted nightlife experiences are just an elevator ride away at SLS Las Vegas including The Sayers Club; Foxtail Nightclub; and The Foundry. The refined, yet raw space at The Sayers Club Las Vegas showcases amazing live performances by emerging and acclaimed artists
, representing the
true Sayers experience – one that is built on sound and space. From its iconic stage to its Strip-facing outdoor patio, the intimate venue welcomes musical talents and enthusiasts alike.
