This was once called the Lady Luck Hotel, over 50 years ago. It’s a vintage location for Nevada gaming, very close to the original casino, the Golden Gate. This hotel has two full towers of rooms and are adding another which should be completed in 2020. If you stay at least 3 nights you can get some of the best rates in the city. When you want to see historic casinos and the Fremont Street Experience, it’s worth ignoring the glaring orange color scheme inside this hotel and taking advantage of its very reasonable prices.

It’s just north of the intersection of Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard, and close to the Mob Museum. They call the surrounding area “Downtown3rd” now. If you’re taking a tour of the Fremont St. casinos, you can include the Grand easily. Here it is on GoogleMaps.


They offer over 400 slots including classic like MegaBucks, Tarzan; and new ones like Dragon Link, FarmVille. Video poker. In denominations from a penny to $25.
