Lenny Kravitz & Philippe Starck

Project: W Las Vegas, Las Vegas, US


Designer Philippe Starck, music icon Lenny Kravitz and architecture studio Gensler have come together to design a new hotel in Las Vegas.

The W Las Vegas is the first W Hotels Worldwide property in the city. The company, a subsidiary of Marriott International, has taken over the 289 guest rooms of the SLS Las Vegas tower, bringing in a star team of designers to refresh the interiors in a way that celebrates the unique and famous location.

The lobby and signature W Hotels Living Room have been designed by Gensler in collaboration with AvroKO Hospitality Group. A drinking area is inspired by the city’s famous casinos, and a neon art “desert garden” by artist Keith Lemley sits behind the bar.

Gensler have collaborated with French design icon Starck for the guest rooms, described as “a cheeky interpretation of luxury hospitality.” Meanwhile, Kravitz has continued his passion for hospitality design by creating the hotel’s flamboyant 2,382sq ft (221sqm) Extreme WOW Suite, which is highlighted by a spacious balcony with mountain views.

Other hotel facilities include a rooftop WET Deck with private cabanas and a destination bar; three floors of meeting and event space; a 24-hour fitness centre; and a Vegas-style steakhouse also designed by Starck.

The signature W Hotels Away Spa is located on the hotel’s second floor and is designed in pure white, with playful elements such as large faux-pearl key rings, lockers featuring bright pink interiors and artful hand sculptures.

“If there are two things in this world that were truly made for each other, it’s W Hotels and Las Vegas,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader for W Hotels Worldwide.
