On March 11, 2011, the Sahara hotel and casino announced it will close the property on May 16, 2011. Plans have not yet been announced for customers with existing reservations after that date, but MGM Resorts is expected to help with a solution. Anyone affected is advised to call Sahara Reservations at 866-382-8884 or 702-737-2654

  • North end of the Strip by Circus Circus and Riviera.
  • Older and smaller than the mega-resorts, an original Old Las Vegas hotel and casino.
  • Moroccan theme carries throughout.
  • Bars: The Thirsty Camel, Burn Your Bra and Abracadabra.
  • 5,000-square-foot pool with cabanas and palm trees.
  • A stop on the Las Vegas monorail.
  • Popular with the young crowd, but clientele is a little closer to hipster than the armband-tattoo and body-spray crowd that fills the Hard Rock and the Palms.
