Seeing Starwood’s SLS Las Vegas Tribute Portfolio Hotel at $69 per night caught my attention. SLS Las Vegas debuted August 2014 as one of the first Hilton Curio Collection Hotels. The hotel’s Hilton affair lasted until November 4, 2015. The hotel rebranded to Starwood Hotels new Tribute Portfolio on November 9, 2015.

The hotel was a $415 million project built on the site of the historic Sahara Las Vegas. SLS has lost money since it opened, including around $90 million in the first half of 2015.
$69 rates look like a deal that can put me in one of their beds.
SLS Las Vegas $69 prepaid and $73 AAA flexible rates caught my eye.
So did the SLS Las Vegas $29 resort fee.
After hotel tax, resort fee and resort fee tax (yeah, there is 12% tax charged on the $29 resort fee for an additional $3.48 tax), the final room rate jumps from $69.30 base rate to $110.10.
SLS Las Vegas $69 rate jumps to $110 after taxes and resort fee.
$69 room rate with 12% tax is a $78 room night. That $32.48 resort fee is nearly 47% of the hotel room base rate.
Still probably a good deal for Las Vegas, but more than I want to spend.
The SLS Las Vegas resort fee is a deal killer for me.
