Expert Review

The initials of this Philippe Starck-designed hotel can mean many things according to the long list of acronyms displayed behind the lobby’s check-in desk (take your pick from Soft Like Silk or Star Lit Soiree). This is the kind of tongue-in-cheek whimsy that makes SLS fun – a vast departure from its former Le Meridien hotel days. Expect quirky objets d’art in the public spaces like a giant horse statue-slash-lamp and 177 chandeliers of varying design. There’s nothing traditional about the 297 rooms, either. A white platform bed (dig the faux-fur throw) takes up the center of the room and faces a floor-to-ceiling pane of smoked glass which hides a 40” LCD TV. The upstairs teak-decked infinity pool is flanked by cabanas and oversized mirrors. Even the fitness center gets its share of attention with celeb trainer Harvey Pasternak’s crew on call for personal workouts. The stark-white Ciel Spa is headquarters for heavenly massages, the popular Bar Centro serves up nitrogen-infused cocktails, and Bazaar restaurant offers delicious tapas courtesy of innovative Spanish chef José Andrés.
