Binion's Opens Door To Past While Keeping Mum On The Future
Frozen in time at Binion's
Binion's checked out of the downtown hotel game back in 2009, but last Friday, it posted photos of what its old rooms look like now on Facebook.
The accommodations reflect a lost Vegas decor that was clearly meant as a homage to
grandma Laura Ashley. Check out the rose-colored carpeting. The floral wallpaper border. The floral prints. The floral drapes. The floral sheers. Yes, at one time, everything was coming up roses for Binion's.
We posted a query about plans for the remodeled rooms (hey, we're nothing if not dogged) and were told there were no plans for that "as of yet." But, in response to another fan's question, Binion's did have this to add:
...these pics are of the Horseshoe side of the casino as someone requested to see the old rooms. This part of the hotel has not been occupied in years. Once we have a date for the opening of the tower we will announce it, but nothing in stone as of yet.
Aha! So, maybe there's some truth to the buzz that a Binion's room remodel is more than just a dream, after all. If you happen to know a little something-something, send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
