It happened just in the nick of the time. After a divorce and being laid off from my job, I was given a complimentary staycation at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino from Curio Collection by Hilton. And it was a decadent weekend of lush experiences and plush pampering. It was what the doctor ordered.
First, let’s talk about the room. All white and with a mirror on the ceiling over the bed, it was obvious that adventure was waiting for me. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud; I found it difficult to get out of it the following morning. The overall design and look of the room was especially made for a fashionista like myself. And the dual-head shower was as relaxing as a day at the spa (which I’ll tell you about in a moment).
From pizza to a beer garden to gourmet sushi, the restaurant options at SLS are endless. A bad meal is an impossibility. I enjoyed a zesty Ahi Tuna Salad at Unami Burger, but my favorite meal was the sushi I had at Katsuya by S+ark. What’s really cool about the eateries at SLS is that not only are they delicious, their visual designs are as impressive as the interior design of the property and its rooms.
Ciel Spa is the perfect luxury spot for relaxing and re-energizing. I treated myself to a 25-minute neck and back massage, and I later learned that Las Vegas locals can receive a 20% discount Sunday through Friday. I plan on returning and taking advantage of that.
One of the highlights of my stay may surprise you. I fell in love with the SLS room robe. Not only did it fit little old me like a dream, but it felt like a dream, too! This fashionista, who is addicted to cute outfits, didn’t want to put any clothes on and just live in that robe! Luckily, you can actually purchase it for $100. I am adding it to my holiday wish list now.
As the typical Las Vegas local, I tend to avoid the Strip. But not anymore. I want more staycations at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Curio Collection by Hilton. I will be back for more, but my only fear is that I won’t want to leave. My next staycation there may just become permanent.
