SLS Las Vegas is starting more than $100 million in resort renovations that will enhance the casino floor, upgrade hotel rooms and renovate existing pool and entertainment venues. 

Planning 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, acquired the property. Room upgrades are already underway and enhancements to the casino floor began Monday. 

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. 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.

SLS Las Vegas opened to the public in August 2014 and is located on the iconic grounds of the Sahara hotel-casino. The casino-resort features 1,615 guest suites, more than 95,000 square feet of meeting space and a collection of restaurants, lounges and entertainment venues.
