The Las Vegas meeting and convention sector is booming. One of the latest big hotels in what is arguably the MICE capital of America is SLS Las Vegas, which opened last August. It sits on the site of the former Sahara Hotel & Casino, which hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and The Beatles in its heyday.

SLS, which stands for 'Style, Luxury, Service', offers more than 1,600 guest rooms and suites, the obligatory casino, pool, more than 7,000m2 of flexible event space, and top eateries.

The influence of creative director Philippe Starck is clear to see in the many quirky design touches. There are three towers: The World Tower featuring contemporary spaces with classic amenities; the all-suite Lux Tower; and The Story Tower, featuring more simple rooms.

The main meetings space, Congo, can host 743 people theatre-style or 637 for a reception. A number of smaller spaces are available, as well as two poolside lounges, and the property's restaurant and nightlife options can also be used to cater for up to 2,000 people for receptions.

Dining options include Bazaar Meat by award-winning chef Jose Andres and Katsua by Starck. The latter combines the talents of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Starck, providing a feast for all the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls and sushi and sashimi platters, a meal here is a real treat.

Nightlife options include LiFE nightclub and Beach LiFE, a rooftop pool, as well as live music venue, The Sayers Club.
