Tonight is the opening of the Apache Hotel which is the new boutique hotel at Binion’s in Downtown Las Vegas. The new hotel comprises of 81 former Binion’s rooms that have been remodeled with vintage 1930’s furnishings as well as stained glass windows and hardwood floors. The hotel lobby has been remodeled as well with a new front desk for guests at the new boutique hotel.
I have stayed at Binion’s in the past when the original hotel was open and, had a good experience but the rooms themselves were always on the small side. Downtown Las Vegas is adding more rooms in the not too distant future with the under construction Circa and planned Fremont expansion; So reopening the Binion’s hotel as before with their smaller rooms would be a hard sell but by making it a vintage themed boutique hotel makes sense.
