US – Downtown Grand Las Vegas reaches expansion milestoneBy Phil - 20 February 2020
Just 13 months after breaking ground, the Downtown Grand Las Vegas has topped out on its expansive, third hotel tower. The announcement comes in conjunction with newly-released room renderings highlighting the stylish design of the studio king and one-bedroom suite offerings. Boasting over 250,000 square feet of additional hospitality space the new tower is on track to begin booking this spring for stays starting in September 2020.
Anchored by seven guest-room floors and adding 495 new rooms to the property’s existing inventory of 629, the Downtown Grand’s third tower, located on the east side of the property and flanked by Stewart and Ogden, will redefine the intersection of 4th and Ogden with clean-lines, contemporary architecture and modern suites. The sleek, detailed exterior coupled with a strengthened pedestrian view will give the property an increased street-level presence and a dynamic new entrance to the hotel’s casino floor.
With an emphasis on providing a boutique hotel experience for the modern traveller in Las Vegas, guests will also experience a significant increase in the suite life with a premier room list that includes 67 studio units, 20 one-bedroom suites, and three Presidential Suites each complete with nearly 1,500 square feet of living space.
To accommodate the additional room inventory, the property has also begun work on expanding the footprint of its current fitness center. Located in the existing casino tower, the upgraded gym will offer over 1,500 square feet of workout space and provide guests with a state-of-the-art setting featuring a healthy combination of machines and free weights.
“The topping out of our newest tower is an energising milestone for all of us at the property,” said John Culetsu, VP and Managing Director of the Downtown Grand. “We are in the final phases of development and closer to the ultimate goal of extending our revered guest experience to many more travellers. We look forward to delivering the city’s newest room product this fall.”
The Downtown Grand reimagined the downtown traveller when it opened in 2013. Defined by its industrial chic aura and highlighted by open ceilings, ornate fixtures, and heavy structural elements the hotel was at the forefront of the Downtown Las Vegas resurgence along with the relocation of Zappos headquarters, the development of the Fremont East District, and Life is Beautiful Music Festival. Six years later, the property continues to serve as a central hub to both tourists and locals alike for all of Downtown Las Vegas’ events and happenings.
