The Plaza Hotel and Casino reopens bigger and better

August 30, 2011 3:07 AM by Mark Mayer

The Plaza Hotel and Casino returns bigger and better than ever with a grand re-opening for the media and invited guests this Wednesday. The hotel/casino has been a fashionable stop downtown since first opening its doors in 1971.

As part of the Fremont Street Experience, the Plaza sits on 16.5 acres of land with more than 1,000 guest rooms and suites, making it one of the largest hotel/casinos in downtown Las Vegas.

The Plaza began an extensive renovation project last year that included brand new guest rooms, suites, all new bars, restaurants and entertainment options. The renovations used contemporary furnishings from the Fontainebleau resort, which suspended construction on the Las Vegas Strip several years ago.

The official public opening of the Plaza will be Thursday, Sept. 1 – in time for college football.
