LAS VEGAS -- The SLS Hotel and Casino announced Tuesday they are opening to the public earlier than expected -- with doors now opening on midnight Sat., Aug. 23.

The hotel was previously scheduled to open one week later on Labor Day weekend.

“It’s such an honor to be part of a dedicated team working around the clock to help bring our vision to life,” said Rob Oseland, President and COO of SLS Las Vegas. “Today we’re turning on our lights and the countdown officially begins as we prepare to welcome guests at SLS Las Vegas one week ahead of schedule.”

The property’s 10,000-square-foot, four-sided marquee stands will begin a countdown to the hotel and casino's opening. By the way, that sign is approximately 88 feet high by 188 feet wide and contains more than 12 million LEDs and 4 million pixels, according to SLS.

SLS Las Vegas broke ground in February 2013, employing thousands of local tradespeople. Upon opening, SLS will be the newest resort to open on the Las Vegas Strip in nearly five years and will bring more than 3,000 jobs to Las Vegas.
