The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas’s oldest casino, completed its largest renovation in 50 years.
The Fremont Street property, which was first built in 1906, completed a 35,000-square-foot, five-story addition that includes 14 suites. The hotel also has a larger casino floor and an updated façade.
The Golden Gate is among a group of downtown Las Vegas hotels looking to compete against Strip hotels for the increasing number of leisure and business visitors to the city.
A block from the Golden Gate, the Golden Nugget (built in 1946) underwent a three-phase renovation between 2006 and 2009 that cost more than $300 million. And last September, the 40-year-old Plaza Hotel and Casino reopened after a 10-month, $35 million renovation.
