New W Las Vegas destination releases photos

New images of Las Vegas’ latest design-driven destination, W Las Vegas, have been released.

This elevated hotel-within-a-hotel concept offers guests a distinctive experience beginning with arrival and check-in through the W’s signature living room lobby. Evoking a sense of 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. Behind the bar, a neon art “desert garden” by artist Keith Lemley dramatically 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
  • Phillipe Starck-designed guestrooms that feature a cheeky interpretation of luxury hospitality, as well as the signature W bedding
  • A 2,382-square foot Extreme WOW Suite designed by multi-talented artist Lenny Kravitz

W Las Vegas will celebrate its grand opening in March, along with new features like a WET Deck and the largest meeting space of any W hotel.
