W puts the wow into Vegas



Posted on: 10 Apr 2017

Described as an ‘elevated hotel-within-a-hotel’, the one-of-a-kind experience offers guests a distinctive experience that begins when they arrive at the W’s signature Living Room lobby.

And evoking a sense of past Vegas glamour, the Living Room bar was inspired by casino gaming tables, while intimate seating nooks nod to the hotel’s original mid-century incarnation as ‘The Sahara’ hotel.

Behind the bar, a neon art ‘desert garden’ by artist Keith Lemley transforms the space from day to night.

Artfully curated design details abound through the hotel, including an elevator lobby lined with playing cards from the original Sahara casino; an art installation behind the front desk made from poker chips that were hand-signed by workers who built the hotel; a Boardwalk-style fortune teller named Booker Glam who issues words of wisdom to curious guests; and Phillipe Starck-designed guestrooms that feature a 'cheeky interpretation' of luxury hospitality, as well as signature W bedding.

Other features include a Spa, a 24-hour fitness center and WET and a rooftop pool.
