New Las Vegas hotel-resort to open Labor Day weekend
SLS » Built on site of old Sahara
First Published Feb 11 2014 12:42 pm • Last Updated Feb 11 2014 12:42 pm

It has been a while since a major new hotel-casino-resort property has opened on the Las Vegas Strip, largely due to the down economy.

That’s why there is some anticipation about the 1,600-room SLS Las Vegas is scheduled to open on Labor Day weekend. It will be located where the long-time Las Vegas icon Sahara Hotel was located. The Sahara, originally built in 1952 as the sixth major hotel in Las Vegas, closed in May of 2011.
