Plans for the Florida renovation include adding 10 pool-side bungalow suites along with a Hyde Lounge and Katsuya sushi restaurant to the 132-room hotel. The property is being redesigned by Philippe Starck, with reopening planned for the first quarter of 2012 under the name SLS Hotel South Beach, according to Nazarian’s company.
Sadly, there's not much in place for the downtrodden Sahara in Las Vegas where rooms sometimes go for a $1. However, Nazarian says he remains committed to redeveloping the property.
We're excited to see the SLS Miami finally take shape but we're kinda hope that SLS goes to Chicago or even London before New York. After all, we're gonna need some time to try out all the other new spots in NYC first.
