Q: Why should someone stay in Downtown versus the Strip?

Kevin Glass: Downtown has experienced a renaissance these past years and it has never been better. Its more relaxed, fun, and experiential than the Strip, and it is a much better value and better gaming odds. From Fremont Street, to the Mob Museum, to great new restaurants and bars on Fremont Street East, a guest could come Downtown and never have to get in a cab. They can walk everywhere and be surrounded by classic architecture, great neon, and a real energy you dont get on the Strip.

Q: Why should they stay at the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino?

KG: At the Downtown Grand we have created a full Las Vegas resort experience without the hassle of the Strip. From the Citrus Grand Pool Deck where guests can lounge and play day and night, to our 24/7 restaurant, Freedom Beat, to our great new rooms, the Downtown Grand is definitely one of the values in Las Vegas. Besides what’s in the hotel, we also have 3rd Street, a unique place to party, eat, and drink, featuring Triple George Grill, an amazing steak/chop/seafood restaurant; the famed Hogs & Heifers (best biker bar in the country); Sidebar featuring classic, sophisticated cocktails and Pizza Rock, which is definitely the best pizza in town!  Honestly, if you are staying at the Grand, you really don’t ever have to leave, but we encourage guests to set out and explore the entire Downtown Las Vegas area — it’s vibrant, fun, and original.

Q: Why is Vegas so expensive now?

KG: It is really all about supply and demand and the demand for Las Vegas is high.  That being said, the value is always better in Downtown Las Vegas. We are able to offer a complete Las Vegas resort experience at a much lower cost than the bigger Strip resorts. If you ask me, for the money and experience, Downtown Las Vegas is the place to be right now.
