Now open! Say hello to this caricature of Sam Nazarian, designed by Philippe Starck.

If you followed our live-blog on Friday, then you were privy to one of the first images from inside a room at the SLS Las Vegas, which officially opened at midnight to the public. Today, we're showing you all around that room.

This here is a superior room in The World Tower, which is standard SLS fare in terms of design and amenities. The Story Tower has smaller, budget-type rooms with bright yellow-tiled bathrooms, while the Lux Tower has larger plusher rooms and suites, with more of designer Philippe Starck's ethereal elements like mirrors on the ceilings, peekaboo bathrooms and illustrated draperies.

The decor in the World Tower is simple but with alternating soft and bold touches like a white sofa at the foot of the also white and extremely comfortable king bed, an armchair with a silver tree stump table next to it, baby pink and black wallpaper design, and giant mirrors on three walls, including one which lights up.

The minibar amenities offer up SLS Saints and Sinners goodies (including SLS's Culinary Director Jose Andres' brand of potato chips!) along with fancy cocktail glasses to use. In the bathroom are SLS's Ciel Spa toiletries which are thankfully gentle on your skin and hair. There's an open closet and an open shelf for storing your clothes as well as an ironing board and iron to crisp up for a night out.

Our favorite part, however, was the desk.

Atop the desk was a purposely crooked frame that featured an illustrated map of Las Vegas and certain memorabilia items like a ticket to The Beatles LOVE show at The Mirage, a pass to the Clark County gun range as well as popular icons, even the ones from rival casinos/hotels. It was a nice nod to the city and made for some good time-killing while on the phone sorting out a room service order.

Speaking of room service, The World and Story Towers offer "To Go" room service from the property's restaurants downstairs, including Katsuya and Umami Burger. The Lux Tower rooms have traditional room service. All room service menus, however, can be found on the giant TV above the desk. In fact, all information about the property can be accessed through the TV. No more in-room compendiums!

As for WiFi, it's included in the $25 resort fee and once we were signed in, we were flying fast on the web. We did have issues downloading email, but everything else worked fine. Bonus points for the power outlets and USB ports in the nightstand and the desk.

Our view was quite pleasant, of the Stratosphere down the street and only minimal rooftoppage, although we were concerned about window shade which featured a photograph of white people (possibly concert-goers?) cheering us on. Of course, we like to be flattered in the bedroom, but this is not quite what we were thinking of.

In short, the room was lovely-looking without being too high design and strange or without being too cheap and hastily done. And just think of how far this room has come from when it was going for ONE DOLLAR back in 2010.

We'll have more from the rest of the property tomorrow--including a look at the restaurants, shops, nightclubs and the actual casino--but in the meantime, head on over to VegasChatter for extremely detailed info on what else is inside the SLS.

Rates at the SLS for Labor Day Weekend start at $267 a night.

desk

love the desk, OCD does not love the placing of the map though. OCD is also concerned about the black on the wall and the multitude of sins it will hide.

how did the size feel? it looks pretty small from the photos, but when i saw the model rooms i didn't get that impression at all


It's a normal hotel room size

It's probably small by Vegas standards but overall a normal hotel room size. It was the same room as the model room that you/I both saw.

ok

then i approve of the size. maybe the black paint makes it seem smaller?
wish the window was a little wider though

size does not matter

You talk about room size? You have to think about this ...how much time do you spend in the hotel room? I always order a cheap hotel here: <a href="http://www.hotelscheap.org/">http://www.hotelscheap.org/</a>    The only time I am in the room is when I am drunk =)  Maybe when I am a bit older and wiser I think about my accommodation!
