Ahern Hotel and Convention Center

Ahern Hotel and Convention Center brings a new twist to the Las Vegas hotels scene. The hotel project along the northern portion of the Las Vegas Strip was designed to appeal to travelers and convention goes. Developers broke ground on a 2.5-acre lot at 300 West Sahara Avenue, west of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s located near the Stratosphere Hotel and the newly updated Sahara Las Vegas. The address is between one of Las Vegas’ classic restaurants, the Golden Steer, and the Allure condos. Construction on the $373 million project began in 2014 without a splashy announcement or major fanfare. Though the project continues to run quietly, some details have emerged about the boutique hotel.

The property reaches 9 stories into the desert sky, putting it on par with the Cromwell Las Vegas and other smaller specialty hotels. Its 206 rooms will be well appointed with the principles of Feng-Shui guiding the design. Expect to see elements like natural wood, cherry-blossom murals, and rich satin linens. Guests will be able to book spa treatments from the comfort of their rooms. The spa carries much of the same feel as the guestrooms, with the mix of Chinese-inspired culture and modern elements expected in luxury hotels. Signs leading the spa and the rooms, as well as others throughout the hotel are written in both English and the languages of China. The staff is bilingual and ready to answer questions in the languages guests prefer.

Like many of the Las Vegas resorts, the hotel is located in a separate tower from the casino. From the rooms, it’s not a far walk to get to gaming. The casino covers 19,000 square feet, featuring Feng Shui elements for its private gaming rooms and the gaming floor. Rather than focusing on traditional Las Vegas games, the focus will fall on games with Asian roots—Fan Tan, Sic Bo, and the always popular Pai Gow. The casino building also has room for boutique shops with luxury goods imported from Asia like clothing and jewelry.

Not surprisingly, the dining scene at the Lucky Dragon was inspired by Asia. The hotel will join the list of Las Vegas buffets, adding to it a gourmet sit-down restaurant with a menu inspired by the cuisines of northern and southern China. The fine-dining establishment was built especially with a view of the Las Vegas Strip and the neon lights. Also at the Lucky Dragon, guests and visitors can grab a quick bite to eat at the noodle bars or at the dim-sum restaurant or relax at the tea café. For more of the Asian experience, it’s not far to Chinatown, a short drive to the west.
