Inside The Rooms of Downtown Grand

Deep reds. Avacado greens. Some dizzying interesting carpet choices. And, loads upon loads of pillows.

The coming Downtown Grand isn't playing it safe when it comes to furnishing its 650 rooms and suites. To which we say, hallelujah! Especially, after the disappointment of this downtown room re-do.

VegasChatter received an advance sneak peek at two of the hotel's room types, a standard double and a 'casino block' corner suite. Downtown Grand refers to the design of its standard 400-square-foot accommodations (side note: Nobu Hotel's standard rooms are 350) as a "refreshing 70s retro feel." But, not in a time wrap way. The room felt -- in keeping with the theme -- groovy, but not dated. You see the end result above, as well as in the photo gallery below.

The 600-square-foot 'casino block' corner suites are, err, vibrant, to say the least. Downtown Grand refers to it as being "fitted in a saucy red sizzle." Indeed. With an added 200 square feet more than standard rooms, dare we say that these accommodations are almost too spacious? A good chunk of the room goes unused. And, that's despite having a king-sized mattress, a desk, a two-chair sitting area, a dresser and a vanity. If you hate to be constrained, this is your room. And, it should be mentioned that the sweeping city views are divine. You can see the room below, with more snapshots in the photo gallery above including the view of the suite we toured.

These aren't the only accommodations that will be offered at Downtown Grand. There will be additional suite products as well ranging up to 1,024 square feet. All rooms, designed by HFA International, will feature marble baths, showers and sinks, pillow-top Serta Presidential mattresses, desks with USB ports and electrical outlets, lounge chairs, flat-screen HDTVs (40-46"), safes, and robes (and cushy ones at that!).

The average starting price for a stay will begin at $69 per night. The Downtown Grand is currently transforming the aging downtown Las Vegas property once known as the Lady Luck. An opening of late 2013 is expected.

With 10 pillows on a bed you'll have enough for yourself/yourselves and for a drunk friend to pass out on.


I'm guessing housekeeping is gonna hate that pillow setup?  Not just the number of pillow cases they will need to change, but most of them are probably going to be thrown into every corner of the room as guests dive into bed and just want to get through the wall of pillows.  So that means tracking all of them down...making sure they're all there..especially the smaller ones.  Which all leads to more time in each room.

Yep, where one person sees luxury comfort, I see another persons nightmare.  Including my own just trying to get through all those pillows to pull back the sheets.  All while thinking "those aren't pillows!"


Sounds like this should be quite a bit more extensive that the upgrade the Plaza did right?  They did okay, but it seems like they didn't want to spend the money to really upgrade everything and anything remaining that was original just really looks bad now.


Yes, it is. They've ripped everything down to the steel and concrete and are building everything anew.


I'm glad to know about this great stuff.
