    Very Nice Stay

    My sister and I just returned from our 5 day stay at the Sahara. They do have large resort fees but apparently those fees are used to build the new Raiders Stadium. They were very pleasant and were able to get us into another room on our early arrival. They have a lot of construction going on but everyone was very nice and the room was beautiful (except the view) but the bed was so comfortable and we had plenty of room. Downside is the cost of room service. All in all we loved it!! I’d definitely go back!!

    A wonderful first getaway together!

    My partner and I flew in on a late evening flight bound for the Sahara.  I'd been through the old SLS on my way to the Monorail from The Strat so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I figured it was undergoing a gutting and renovation, so things should be good bordering on great? Boy oh boy was I right in this choice!!!!!!!  Check in was a breeze coming in through the Alexandria Tower doors and being greated by Miriam (I believe!).  She was very pleasent, and unbelievably helpful. She was so excited that my partner was in Vegas for the first time AND we were celebrating our anniversary.  With a quick check in that includes photo ID and a credit card to cover the resort fees we were on our way to our room.  The room itself in the Alexandra Tower was spectacular.  We had a view leading up the strip showcasing the Sahara, Circus Circus, Treasure Island, Westgate and Stratosphere Marquis.  The windows featured black out curtains, beautiful tapestries covering the walls, a window length chesterfield, in room coffee, and a bathroom you could have had a party in. There was also a mini bar….but buyer beware!  Amenities offered include a gorgeous pool, casino on site (of course!), a coffee shop for the morning, a wonderful grill for afternoon, evening and late night Burgers and fries.  There is also an other option with a patio whose name is escaping me, Bazaar Meats with a renowned chef and a Starbucks opening soon. I'm sure as the Reno's progress, so will the food options. There was also a spa we didn't visit, a steam room and a weight/exercise room.  Conveniently located are Walgreens Pharmacy (for booze, breakfast, and Munchies), Subway, and a McDonald's beside the Walgreens for some decent, cheap coffee and breakfast.  The Monorail deserves its own mention.  Like really folks, why pay 'strip' prices when you are at a Monorail station?  Save the money for shows and meals and stay here and jump on the Monorail. Or the Duce to head downtown!!!!!!!  In the casino, things are jumping!  Jackpot Hold'em, 5$ Blackjack, Roulette workers willing to teach you, and great machines.  We found the machines to be looser then further up the strip and sincerely enjoyed the benefits offered by Club 52.  If you are staying here, or just passing through the first thing you need to do is visit Club 52! Free enrolment bonus, and great accumulated rewards!  The service was incredible. Tip accordingly and the ladies will return often.  In conclusion, we both can't wait to return to the Sahara.  Each and every single staff member we encountered, most specifically Miriam at the Alexandra Tower entrance was so kind, accommodating and overall wonderful.  Looking forward to our return in the spring and seeing all of the changes accomplished!!! 

    Not a good hotel

    Very disappointed by this hotel. I stayed here previously in 2015 when it was SLS. Now it’s dumpy (I’m here currently) and to top it off the pool is closed when on there is no indication of this on their website when I booked it. They are still charging the $43 resort fee however! The restaurants are terrible and overpriced. The area is super sketchy to walk around to find something else. The monorail attaches to hotel is the only saving grace. The rooms are basic but clean. It’s quiet enough. The clientele are low brow on the most part. Spend a few more bucks and go to another hotel so your trip is decent.

    Short stay, but very enjoyable!

    I stayed at The Sahara for one night on a recent trip to Vegas to see Madonna. I arrived about 11:30am and was very pleased that a room was ready. The front desk agent was very clear in detailing the room rate and the $50 incidental deposit. I stayed in the Marra Tower on the 23rd floor. There was construction going on near the elevator, but did not interfere with my stay nor did I hear it in my room. The room was very clean. I had a nice view too which was appreciated. The decor was a bit modern for my taste, but would not discourage me from staying again. Amenities include two free bottles of water, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, lotion, and a dark towel for make-up removal so the white towels are not stained. The towels could have been softer, but served their purpose. There is a mini bar in the room, but no refrigerator for storing personal items or coffee maker. I did get a kick out of the two huge full length mirrors with lighted borders on each side of the room! There was a desk, but the chair was wood and not cushioned so not very comfortable to sit on. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. I was able to keep the temperature in the room comfortable. There was also a leather armchair and loveseat in the room. The bathroom door was different in that it was a heavy, large sliding mirror. As I stayed in the room alone, I just left it open. There were placed to charge your phone or other devices on both the desk and nightstand. I ordered room service. The prices were high (I expected as much) - $40 for nachos, two cans of Diet Pepsi, plus tip. They originally told me it would be a 35 minute wait, but it was probably only about 20 minutes maximum. The guy who delivered my order was very friendly. The food was served in disposable containers so no need to have room service pick up a tray. The nachos were good, but nothing to rave about. The hotel is one of the stops on the Monorail which I took to Caesar's for the concert. Easy to find the loading area, buy tickets at the kiosk, and inexpensive ($5 one ride tickets). I felt safe waiting for the Monorail and riding on it alone at 7:30pm. It was not very crowded on a Thursday night. The hotel partners with Super Shuttle for airport transfers ($20 round trip) and the shuttle was right on time. I left for an early flight immediately following the Madonna concert, but would have liked to have stayed longer. Would definitely stay here again.

    Staff makes a difference

    The hotel is fine and fairly close to the convention center. I needed to extend my stay and the initial staff member I spoke with was very difficult and unaccommodating (bordering on rude). Luckily I left and when I returned I was able to work with Augustin, which was an entirely different experience. Agustin went out of his way to make my experience successful. His demeanor was respectful and he was easily able to address my concerns. The gym is in the basement with very limited options.
