The former Fitzgeralds Casino & Hotel in Las Vegas has completed a top-to-bottom transformation and has reopened as The D Las Vegas.
Sited beneath the largest video screen in the world in the Fremont Street Experience, The D has a new lobby that leads to a two-story casino, 624 guest rooms, and 14 suites. There are two new bars: Longbar, inside the casino, and D Bar, on Fremont Street.
The 8,000 square feet of meeting space, which can accommodate up to 300 attendees, includes a ballroom and four breakout rooms on the 12th floor. All meeting rooms offer wireless Internet access.
Renovations at the D focus on modern styling, while maintaining elements from classic Vegas and introducing glimpses of Detroit. The D stands for the hotel’s home in Downtown Las Vegas, as well as its owner and CEO Derek Stevens’ first name and his hometown of Detroit.
At One FremontStreet, Las Vegas’ first casino, which opened in 1906 as the Hotel Nevada, has completed its first major expansion in 50 years. The D’s sister property, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, boasts a new 35,000-square-foot addition with 14 hotel suites. Guest rooms as The Golden Gate total 106.
The casino floor has been expanded and features a new high-limit gaming room. The new lobby features artifacts from the hotel’s past, including Prohibition-era whiskey bottles found in the hotel’s walls during construction.
