We took a weekend trip to Las Vegas for a friend’s birthday and ended up staying at the SLS Hotel. The hotel is relatively newer on the strip and is close to the Stratosphere hotel. We were able to get a handicap accessible room and the hotel was connected to the monorail train. These are some of the positives of the hotel. The hotel itself is nice and is a little bit on the smaller side, nothing too fancy and not a lot of traffic. The restaurants in the hotel that we tried were just okay. Nothing special and definitely on the pricey side. The room itself was small, but enough room for Gary to get around. The bathroom was nice with a built in shower bench. And we believe this trend is seen in all of the hotels in Vegas, but what is with all the carpet? There were carpets on the ramps and just about everywhere, making it harder for Gary to wheel around. In addition to the carpet, we will say that the pool was nothing great. It was on the smaller side and was broken up into two halves that were not connected. No lift either. So the pool was a thumbs down in our opinion and the overall hotel experience just okay. So if you are looking for an handicap accessible hotel in Vegas, you may want to look elsewhere for better options.
So besides staying at the hotel, we made it out to Freemont street, saw a show, found a great breakfast place off the strip, visited Lasher sport wheel chair shop, walked the strip and went to the Wynn buffet. If you are out in Vegas please check out Lasher sport. He has the best materials and technology for creating wheelchairs and is really friendly and knowledgable. Check him out!
