Sahara Hotel- Las Vegas

I had the opportunity to attend a wonderful wedding vendor conference, the Wedding MBA, from September 22 to September 24 in Las Vegas. I learned so much and met so many wonderful vendors, but most of all, my excitement for a Las Vegas wedding partnership grew. I get so many clients asking me for hotel and activity recommendations in various honeymoon and Bachelorette locales. Many of these clients plan to head to Las Vegas for at least one of these vacations.

I was lucky enough to be invited by the Sahara,,
to tour their facilities and stay in the amazing
Ambassador Suite during my days in Vegas, the perfect suite for a small wedding reception, a Bachelorette party, or a honeymoon. First of all, this suite is old Vegas at its best- rumor is that Elvis stayed here at one point. While sitting in the living room of the 2-bedroom suite,
you can just feel the nostalgia of the Rat Pack days. This suite was made for a party! There are 2 showers, 2 bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and the hard-to-forget bath tub smack in the middle of the Master Bedroom. The floor-to-ceiling windows line one whole side of the suite, and make the perfect sunset or sunrise that much better. Our bed was very comfortable, as were all the furnishings in the room. The décor is very retro- think metallic wallpaper, dark woods, and big chandeliers. We loved it.

The restaurants at the Sahara were great as well. First we visited the Nascar Café. While it was really designed for Nascar fans, I am confident that any sports fan would appreciate it. The food was good and the service was quick. We enjoyed watching a few people try and eat the six pound, 24 inch burrito that the Café is famous for- none succeeded, by the way! The Nascar Café also has an upstairs area which is perfect for larger parties including wedding receptions, birthday parties, and Bachelor parties.

The highlight of our culinary experience at the Sahara was the House of Lords steakhouse. I had a lovely stuffed mushroom and salmon, while my husband enjoyed a huge triple peppercorn New York Strip. For a steak enthusiast, he declared this one of the best steaks he has ever had! The House of Lords can also provide their private room for parties such as a reception or rehearsal dinner.

All in all, we enjoyed our trip to Las Vegas immensely, and that is largely due to the Sahara Hotel.
