SLS Las Vegas Begins $100 Million Resort Upgrades

LAS VEGAS (Oct. 8, 2018) – SLS Las Vegas® is set to begin more than $100 million in resort renovations that will enhance the casino floor, upgrade hotel rooms and renovate existing pool and entertainment venues. Planning for the reimagined guest experience began in April of this year when Alex Meruelo, founder of the Meruelo Group and owner of the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nev., acquired the iconic casino property. Room upgrades are already underway and enhancements to the casino floor begin today, Monday, Oct. 8.

Updates to the 60,000-square-foot casino floor will include a new layout for the slot, table games pit and high-limit areas, as well as new ceiling, carpeting and lighting to create a modern, inviting atmosphere in the center of the action. Resort renovations will include a redesigned Story Tower, remodels to the World and Grand Tower corridors, and select suite upgrades. Additional enhancements across the property will be announced in the coming months.

“These renovations are just the first step in realizing the exciting vision Mr. Meruelo has planned for the property,” said Paul Hobson, General Manager of SLS Las Vegas. “We look forward to continuing to provide an unparalleled guest experience as we move forward with our enhancements and improved amenities.”
