A block of rooms has been reserved for SBSE Retreat participants at the Sahara Hotel. More information on the Sahara Hotel can be found here. The Sahara is located within the heart of Las Vegas strip, and only about 10 minutes driving distance from the Springs Preserve where the Retreat will be held.

The Las Vegas Airport is ranked among the 12 busiest airports in the world based on the amount of passenger activity, serving over 40 air carriers. With over 1,100 flights arriving and departing daily, McCarran International Airport offers direct flights to more than 125 U.S. cities. Las Vegas is in the Pacific Time zone. It is a 4 hour drive from Los Angeles .

The most reliable means to get to the Sahara Hotel would be by taxi, at around $20.00 US. The airport is about 6 miles South of the Sahara Hotel, and it may take around 15-20 minutes for the trip (except during rush hour which could take a bit longer).
