The W Las Vegas coming to SLS

The W Hotel brand is opening in Las Vegas in December. The W Las Vegas will be taking over the former Lux Tower at SLS Las Vegas. Like the other hotel within a hotel options, The W will have its own lobby and check-in area.

The W is part of the Starwood Prefered Guest program, which is now linked with Marriott Rewards and the Ritz Carlton Rewards, allowing you to earn, use and transfer points between your linked accounts.

Free tickets to Bonkerz Comedy Club at SLS

For a limited time, you can get comped tickets to Bonkerz Comedy Club at the SLS Hotel  & Casino.  The regular price is $10 plus tax and fees, but you can enter the code “SLS”  on the checkout page when buying your tickets to get them comped.

Using that code also waives the service fee and tax. They really are free. You can get up to 4 tickets comped this way. Continue reading Free tickets to Bonkerz Comedy Club at SLS

Players Club Return Rates

When comparing players clubs, there are many factors to consider; tiers and tier benefits; value of room and event offers; partnerships; comp return rate. Some clubs are better in one department than another. You should factor that in when choosing where to play.

Today I look at the return rate.  To determine the rate, I’m using the base earning rate for points and the rate at which those are converted to freeplay and “pay with points” comp value. As a general the VP return rate does not apply to “fullpay” video poker or games with 100% theoretical returns. I am not including multipliers unless they are good for all tiers at all times. Most players clubs give you an accelerated earning rate at higher tiers. Continue reading Players Club Return Rates

SLS Overview

I’m always a little sad when a piece of Las Vegas History disappears. I was able to experience the Sahara a few times and even stayed in one of their suites. It had been on a long downward spiral before closing, though, and was a dubious low-roller choice near the end.  The SLS has changed that. The basic structure (including the room footprint) is still the same, but everything else is new. The rooms are completely remodeled. The dining options are great and all of the stores are upscale.
