Sahara Hotel Las Vegas Review


The Sahara Hotel Las Vegas is located right on the Strip.

The complex is a mixture of trendy décor that is mixed with a little Art Deco. The Sahara property was totally renovated with each room receiving a stylish finish with the décor planned by Philippe Starck. There are several types of rooms available and they are smaller than some other hotels on the Strip and if you are looking for a view of the Strip you will need to upgrade to the higher floors. There are lots of things that are positives about the Sahara Hotel that will please a younger crowd more so than an older crowd.

As you walk through this property you will find carpet with designs of the old Sahara Hotel Las Vegas that will throw you back in time as well as areas that the floor tiles light up as you walk across them. Another positive for the younger crowd are the two pool areas. The Lux pool is dedicated to relaxation and the adult only Foxtail Pool Club transforms from a daytime party scene to one of the hottest dance clubs on the Strip at night.

There is limited shopping on the complex but guests can easily take the monorail to other locations on the Strip. Dining at the Sahara Hotel can accommodate most budgets and the upscale cuisine created by Chef Jose Andres at the Bazaar Meat will tantalize your taste buds. The Sahara Hotel Las Vegas will appeal to many people and if you are looking for something that has a LA meets South Beach feel then the Sahara Hotel is perfect for you.
