Golden Gate Casino Closing

Golden Gate Casino Closing

The casino is due to be closed from August 20th to 25th well apart from more casino space the outdoor One Bar will also be extended as well as the addition of a new entry way off the Fremont Street Experience is to be built. The current casino at the Golden Gate is a fun place to play although the smaller space does get crowded at peak times and the extra space will be a plus.

Downtown Grand Getting Bigger

Downtown Grand Getting Bigger

The approval has been given for the eight-story hotel tower addition to the Downtown Grand where the current valet area on the East side is located. This addition the third tower at the property will add another 495 rooms to the current room total bringing the overall resort to 1,124 rooms. The Downtown Grand is a nice property with a nice pool deck area, the problem for the property since it opened has been its location, a block off the Fremont Street Experience. The Downtown Grand has been doing things such as concerts and pool events to get people to walk the mainly empty block between the resort and Fremont Street. The addition of more rooms to the property should get more people staying onsite which will help the casino and restaurants on the property.
