SLS Las Vegas
This Philippe Starck-designed hotel brings the best of Los Angeles to the Strip, an Umami Burger restaurant and live music at the Sayers Club included; past drop-in acts have included Tove Lo and Capital Cities.
What we loved Spotting the monkeys (part of the SLS crest) throughout the hotel, in everything from the artwork to the mirrors to the wallpaper.
If you only have one night Nosh wood-fired oven-roasted suckling pig at Bazaar Meat, José Andrés’ hunting-club-themed take on the Vegas steakhouse.
Bonus The hotel has its own stop on the Las Vegas Monorail, which makes getting around this famously unwalkable city a whole lot easier.702-761-7000, slslasvegas.com
