Sahara dec 2019
We booked a 4 night stay at the Sahara December 2019. Check in was very easy. They require a credit card deposit for incidentals (there is also a resort fee, which for us was included in the air/hotel package that we had purchased, but I assume for most bookings this has to be paid for on arrival). The hotel is very nice, clean & modern. We were in the Marra Tower, very convienently located right off of reception. Our room was on the 26th floor. The elevators are fast & there are plenty of them. The room was extremely clean with modern décor. Comfortable bed & amazing shower.
The location is at the very end of the strip. We chose this hotel as we enjoy walking. We walked to Freemont Street (Downtown), to the Arts District to try out some craft breweries. We also walked to the strip. The monorail station is right behind the hotel, if you don't wish to walk everywhere.
There is a Starbucks located on site, plus other restaurants. We did have drinks at Beers and Bets sports bar. Nice atmosphere.
I cannot comment on the casino as we did not gamble anywhere.
We enjoyed our stay at the Sahara & would recommend.
