The W Las Vegas is a Category 5 Starwood property with free nights starting at 12,000-16,000 points per night. Generally room rates here are fairly inexpensive so I opted to pay $97 for my one night stay rather than shelling out the points.

The property is connected to the SLS Las Vegas, and is located in one of the towers that used to be the SLS, though the hotel has their own separate check-in area and bar.

Arriving late in the evening, I took a Lyft from McCarran International Airport, which took about 15 minutes as the hotel isn’t located on the strip. Using Lyft Line, my total came to $11 for the ride.

As a SPG Gold member, I was helped right away, and informed that I had been upgraded to a Spectacular Room.

One nice benefit of staying at the W is you have complimentary access to the spa facilities including a eucalyptus steam room. It’s common for most Vegas hotels to charge a spa access fee to use the facilities in addition to the resort fee, so I was pleased that this wasn’t the case here.

Bottom Line

All the staff I interacted with with very friendly including the check-in agents and the at the AWAY Spa. The rooms were average in my opinion and lacked that W brand identity you get from other W properties. I have a feeling it’s because when they took over the SLS tower, they didn’t renovate the rooms at all. This could be an opportunity down the road to give the rooms a more W feeling.

Overall I enjoyed my stay at the W Las Vegas, given the inexpensive rate I was paying, though the property does tack on a $35 resort fee each night, which is not waived for elite members. I would also recommend the SLS if you’re looking for a cheaper rate, as generally their rates are even lower.

Note, that the W doesn’t really have any restaurants, with the exception of the lobby bar, so hotel guests need to head over to the SLS if looking for a meal.
