around $69 a night.
To put that in perspective, the new Plaza touts rooms starting at $29 a night (a look at its booking engine shows most weekdays running at $35 and weekends around $67). Across the street at the remodeled Golden Gate, accommodations fall around $39 mid-week and around $69 on the weekend. And, down Fremont Street, the new D is asking around $34 mid-week for its renovated digs and $69 on the weekends. (Although, that seems to tick up a few bucks on each end in the New Year to $44/$79.)
The question is -- will remodeled rooms and a still-evolving downtown renaissance get Vegas visitors to leave The Strip? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Meantime, don't pack your bags for the Downtown Grand just yet. It's not expected to open its doors until late next year (possibly in September). The Lady Luck shuttered back in 2006.
