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.
A rooftop pool at a hotel isn’t exactly unusual in sunny Los Angeles, so it takes more than your average cement pond with a view of the shimmering downtown skyline to get us excited. With a nightclub name like Altitude, though, the amenities at the SLS Beverly Hills’ pool did have us reaching for the sunscreen (non-pore-clogging, of course) and rummaging through our closet for that cute bathing suit we bought to show off our summer gym bod.
Unlike most other hotel pools we’ve patronized over the years where you have to strain your neck to avoid seeing guys in fedoras and speedos (at the same time!), plug your ears to drown out the bad techno music, and resist ordering those neon cocktails getting everyone into the “party mood” the sixth-floor Altitude seems to be a tranquil oasis on one of L.A.’s busiest streets, La Cienega.
