CIM Group Completes Gallery Tower — First New Hotel Constructed in Downtown Las Vegas in More Than 10 Years

USA, Las Vegas, Nevada. September 24, 2020

CIM Group have announced the completion of Gallery Tower, an eight-story hotel tower that adds 495 contemporary guest rooms to Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino. Gallery Tower is the first new ground-up hotel constructed in more than 10 years in Downtown Las Vegas and is set to debut on September 22, offering Downtown Grand Hotel's guests a total of 1,124 rooms in an assortment of room configurations including three new 1,500-square-foot penthouse suites. Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino spans two full city blocks between Casino Center Boulevard and North 4th Street, and East Ogden and East Stewart Avenues.

The 250,000-square-foot Gallery Tower features Downtown Grand's industrial chic aesthetic and derives its name from the property's art collection, featuring works by local and nationally recognized artists which are showcased throughout the property. The centerpiece of the collection is a one-of-a-kind interactive augmented reality in-room experience featured in select guestrooms. Gallery Tower expands the range of Downtown Grand's comfortable, quality accommodations in the pedestrian-friendly downtown Las Vegas, an area that continues to evolve as a hub for business as well as entertainment. The new building rises above the reconfigured porte-cochere on the east side of the property creating a grand arrival area. Gallery Tower has direct access to, as well as rooms with views to, the Downtown Grand's popular rooftop pool deck along with a direct connection into the hotel's ground floor casino, dining and entertainment venues.

Drawing on its extensive development and operating expertise, CIM Group redeveloped and repositioned Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino to offer a boutique hotel experience when the hotel opened in 2013. CIM established Downtown Grand as a popular destination for locals and visitors with its variety of dining options, entertainment programming and a lively casino and gaming venue as well as Downtown Las Vegas' first roof top pool deck, Citrus.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
