SAHARA Las Vegas

2535 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109

The SAHARA Las Vegas property has had quite a wild ride since its opening in October 1952. Since, it was reimagined into SLS Las Vegas, and then back to its historic name. Along with the return of its original name, much of the property has been remodeled. There are over 1,600 guest rooms divided into three separate towers, each with its own distinct style. Blanca tower is very modern, Alexandria tower is opulent, and Marra tower is reminiscent of the desert around the Las Vegas Strip.

The SAHARA has free parking, but you can also rent exotic cars on the Sahara property. If you don’t wish to rent your own Maserati or Lamborghini, the Las Vegas Monorail also connects via a pedestrian bridge to your hotel.

But, you may not want to leave the SAHARA. With a casino of nearly 60,000 square feet and 600 slot machines, you will have plenty to do. After you are done gaming, dine at award-winning restaurants that are located on property. Some of these restaurants include Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres, Uno Mas Street Tacos and Spirits, and Prendi.

The SAHARA has all of this to offer and more. Consider SAHARA for your next getaway stay.

Facilities

Balcony Options at the SAHARA Las Vegas

Balconies can be difficult to find in Las Vegas because the owners of each property would rather encourage guests to spend their time at the casino floors or at public bars. The SAHARA Las Vegas does not have many rooms with balconies. However, if you are hoping for a balcony room at the SAHARA, book the Blanca Penthouse. This suite has 3,300 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space. You and your guests will enjoy two roof top decks here, featuring a fireplace and a hot tub. These roof top decks will make you feel close to the desert night sky as you relax after a day of classic Las Vegas fun.
