The Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino Expanding With New Hotel Tower Adding 495 Guestrooms

USA, Las Vegas, Nevada. January 17, 2019

The Grand Entrance to the Downtown Las Vegas party is about to get a little more Grand. In conjunction with the property's five-year anniversary, The Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino Las Vegas has announced expanding the footprint of its hospitality space by over 250,000 square feet in mid-2020 with the addition of a new tower.

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.

Since re-opening as the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino in 2013, the hotel has become known for its spacious, contemporary rooms with unmatched views stretching from the mountains to the Las Vegas Strip.

With an emphasis on providing a boutique hotel experience for the modern traveler 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 boasting nearly 1,500 square feet of living space.

“We are advancing our progressive growth plan for the Downtown Grand development as the demand for our rooms has steadily increased since our opening, and our guests continue to share their positive experiences about the Hotel, Casino, and restaurants. We believe that having over 1000 rooms will allow us to meet that new demand and provide a Downtown Las Vegas experience visitors as well as locals are seeking,” said Kevin Glass, General Manager of Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino.

“The addition of the new suites expands Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino's capacity to serve groups of all kinds as the perfect Downtown destination,” notes John Culetsu, VP and Managing Director of Downtown Grand.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
