    Already a member of the Preferred Hotel Group (along with Wynn, Red Rock Resort and Green Valley Ranch), SLS Las Vegas is now partnering up with Hilton Worldwide as part of the brand's new Curio collection.

    Launched today "for travelers who seek local discovery and authentic experiences," the collection will feature four to five star resorts. Initially, SLS Las Vegas will be joined by The Sam Houston Hotel in Houston, Hotel Alex Johnson in Rapid City, SD, The Franklin Hotel in Chapel, NC, and "a soon to be named hotel development in downtown Portland." Said SLS' Sam Nazarian:


    WIERD AS SLS LA IS A STARWOOD HOTEL

    I think its part of their plan to fill hotel rooms during convention periods, and when the pool season dies down. They have to cover their debt payments. Being attached to the convention center via monorail and proximity should help attract loyal point collecting business people, who would not otherwise consider SLS.

    We're starting to see where Nazarian's connections will pay off. He's made millions successfully reading his target demographic and meeting their needs (after convincing them they have an unmet need). It really is something to follow this guy's business moves.

    SLS is growing like crazy. I was just in Miami and noticed the new SLS Hotel & Residence in Brickell that is being built right now.
