We stayed one evening during the Sahara this December that is past want their staff all the best..its likely to be interesting to see just what takes place whenever a few hundred individuals are hunting for a work with a state by having a 14 % unemployment rate..
We echo the sentiments above. Sad to see among the very early wild birds get, but i am not absolutely all that amazed either. All the best . to your social folks of the Sahara.
Really sad news, we remained here simply prior to SBE buying the spot and enjoyed my stay, workers during the time had been friendly and I also can keep in mind being well looked after as a minimal degree gambler in the craps table and vp bar.
SBE got in method over their minds with this specific, it did not assist they were already starting to alienate their base before that and with competitors courting everyone during the recession, there wasn't much the Sahara could bank on to draw people in (besides $1 days, blah) that they purchased at the top of the crest, but the fact is.
Another nail for the monorail.
The Sahara may be the stop that is last a turnaround, so that the trains will need to continue there without people until you desire to go right to the souvenir store or the Strat. We doubr if any cabs will loaf around if the Sahara is closed.
It really is odd that the 2 most useful Monorail stops will be the Hilton and also the Sahara and also the one is closed additionally the other is under-utilized.
Moved into the Sahara through the HGVC regarding the strip because it ended up being the casino that is closest. unfortunate spot. The Riviera is holding its very own.
Extremely news that is sad. While i love the nicer places like Wynn / Bellagio / Venetian, etc. there will be something really fun & conformting about visiting the older properties. no. 1 - almost no d-bags! I assume i am simply bummed that the Las Las Vegas We enjoyed, the one which felt such as an adult D-land, is quickly vanishing: Stardust / Frontier / Desert Inn / Westward Ho / Barbary Coast / Boardwalk (a complete plunge but We skip the frightening clown), etc. You might be missed. I really hope the Riv hangs in there.
For ADZTheMan i'd think they shall liquidate the fixtures, furniture, etc. Also it, there's no reason to leave stuff sitting that could be turned into a few dollars if they don't plan on imploding. Keep an optical attention away for the auction. and about it let me know if you hear! I do not inhabit LV, but might travel straight down for an opportunity to wander through Sahara once more. and possibly get me personally a camel lamp!
Option to screw a desert up themed casino who has survived 59 years within the desert. The strip is just about becoming one giant ghetto with a solitary high lease region plopped at the center.
Um, does anybody discover how numerous rooms that are open Sahara has at this time? I understand they shut down some spaces during 2009, but i can not keep in mind exactly just what that quantity had been.
Dshort makes an excellent point above in regards to the monorail. We wonder whatever they will do with that stop? It had been ideal for dealing with the Strat, along with a place that is good get a cab downtown.
Hopefully someone should come along and restore the Sahara, however in the climate that is current that's doubtful. We never ever will have thought the other day whenever I went after dark Sahara I saw the place open that it would be the last time.
That area of the Strip is end up being the boulevard of broken desires. The Riv and Circus Circus/Slots-A-Fun is all that's left after the Sahara closes. That end regarding the Strip had for ages been in decrease and returning to the closing of El Rancho (the next El Rancho. to some degree) back 1992.
These have raised prices, and restricted entry, that final weekend to their booking system. We wonder what they will plan being a end-of-an-era finish. I'll be in Vegas the week-end before, i'm interested to see its days that are last.
