The 106-year-old Golden Gate Hotel & Casino has completed a 35,000-square-foot, five-story addition that includes 14 hotel suites designed as a tribute to notable guests like rat packers Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin. They include two vintage-showgirl-inspired penthouses that encompass the entire fifth floor; an expanded casino floor with 1920s flapper-inspired, high-limit gaming room, complemented by Golden Gate’s playful dancing dealers; a new lobby lit by a vintage “Hotel” sign that previously adorned Golden Gate’s Main Street exterior; and a modern digital marquee and contemporary LED lighting accents designed to represent pinstripes from the roaring 20s.
The Golden Gate features Nevada’s first Gen2 elevator; using ReGen technology, the elevator generates power as it descends, thereby reducing electrical usage by 40 percent. Closed-loop geothermal wells are used for refrigeration and domestic hot water. The hotel has three bars on-property.
