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.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
