(Las Vegas, NV) — The SLS Las Vegas will open this fall. The hotel casino is located on the old Sahara site at Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue. The new boutique style resort will not look like the old Sahara. They gutted the building and will use only the steel frame.
The KXNT Morning News spoke with SLS Las Vegas President Rob Oseland about the property. He says they hope to revitalize the north end of the strip. Oseland says accessibility to the hotel casino is a positive, as it’s located at the fourth busiest intersection in the country and it’s easy to get to the highway and the airport.
The hotel will have 12 restaurants, three nightlife venues, a casino, two pools and convention meeting space. SLS has properties in Miami and Los Angeles and another property opening in New York in 2014.
The company plans to hire 2,400 people over the course of seven months. They will begin recruitment in January. Right now SLS is looking to fill director and manager positions.
