the D is A.O.K.
The D is an upgrade from the Fitz, The two floor casino is split in two atmosheres. First floor is new, rebuilt, loud and happening. second floor is more old school with the classic games and feel. They have full pay video poker spread around. 8/5 bonus progressive at the bar and some others that are coin machines. Love the new escalater from freemont street right to the second floor bar, saves me some walking.
The renovations are very nice the lower casino floor and the bar is awesome. The outside is striking and attractive. It can be loud on the downstairs casino floor as mentioned in the previous review. They still have some good BP and Deuces. Upstairs is not as pretty but it is quieter and they have the old horserace game. Good amount of food options and decent drink service.
I just returned from a weeks stay in Downtown Vegas. I really like what the new owners have done to the old Fitzgeralds as far as the new carpet and all the other improvements. One thing that needs to go however is the unbearable noise on the lower floor. I used to play in there for hours. This trip I tried to play three or four times but just could not stand the loud music. As any craps player knows, communication with the crew is very important. Even standing next to the stick person it was hard to get my directions through. If the new management is trying to draw in young people with a little money to buy a few overpriced drinks they will probably be a big success. What they are doing at this point however is driving away the older hardcore gambler. I guess the choice of who they want to please is up to management. I know who I'd be after if I were running the place! The choice is up to the owners.
Potential is There for This Sleeping Giant
I happen to be paralyzed and in a wheelchair, but fly out several times a year I fly out to Vegas and always enjoy checking out the various resorts -- especially the Downtown properties.
We always spend some time in Fitzgerald's as we like the second floor restaurant and I like the Sportsbook now that Lucky's has taken over the operation and brought one of my favorite employees over from the Plaza.
But none of us ever get much of a feeling of being wanted or welcome in Fitzgerald's like we do at the Fremont Street casinos.
And we have never received any type of of offer, news, promotion or e-mail from the property even though they have our contact information from our Player's Club cards.
Up until my recent visit, I would have given a 5 Rating for the Food & Drink as we loved the 2nd floor restaurant -- especially the deals on barbecued ribs, burgers and the pasta bar.
But not only have they raised their prices a bit -- completely understandable as the ribs were arguably the best dining deal around after the Golden Gate shrimp cocktail (which seems to have disappered with their renovations) -- more importantly the quality and portions appear to have been reduced substanstially. I love almost any kind of barbecued ribs. But the ribs on my recent visit looked and tasted quite a bit different than the ones from previous visits and were a disappointment.
The pasta bar is still great though (remember to tip the guy preparing the made to order pastas) and everyone who works in the restaurant is friendly and has a good personality which helps to makes up for the lack of customer service in other areas of the hotel -- especially the casino and cashier's cage.
Another reason why I probably would not stay there with so many other nearby options is the extremely slow elevators.
But I am looking forward to see what renovations are in store for this large downtown property.
I Like The Fitz!
The Fitz is fine. I have always liked it there. The rooms are old but clean. They have several very good restaurants, and they're located downtown so if you like "Old Vegas", this is a good place. It's not great, but certainly adequate and a decent and safe place to stay.
"Our Home Away from home"
We have enjoyed our stays for the last 5 years at the Fitz and find everything there very convenient. Parking is close, walk off the elevator right to the restaurant, and rooms with a nice view. It's always cool to watch the light shows at night on Fremont Street. Our stays have really been pleasurable and the staff at the Fitz always makes us feel welcome. Prices for food and drinks are very reasonable and they are always updating things in the hotel. A good place to consider!
Not bad, not great
Was a cheap stay and we got what we expected. Asked for a refrigerator and got one...finally. Had to request clean towels the second day.
Wasn't disgusting but wasn't really clean. Slots were NOT LOOSE at all! Still recommend the stay if you want an okay place for a good price.
I have been there twice since the beginning of 08 and on both the tuesdays i have been there on the same vp machine I hit the royal.
The Fitz customer service is great and the staff and the bartenders at the vue bar are great. They shoot the breeze with you and never let your drinks run dry
The Fitz is the best place to stay for comps and friendly service all around. I have been staying there since 06 and won't stay anywhere else.
Nice place. rooms ok food ok. Don't like some games closed till night or weekend. Nice to see light show at night. Like it down on fremont street can get bus pass 24hrs for $5 can use max cat and deuce buses to get around Las Vegas. Cheaper games then the strip. Also food cheaper downtown.
I stayed there for the first time the week of jan 22 2007 and had a great time.
From the valets to the housekeeping they were very nice and informative on the questions I had.
The vue bar is great played some video poker and the bartenders were always on top of things very friendly.
Great giveaways and drawings every nite. Didnt win much money pretty much broke even but the staff and the people in the hotel/casino made up for that.
I have already scheduled another few days there the week of feb. 12 2007. I will never stay at the other places downtown again. fitzgeralds has got all my business from now on. thanks. steve
No Way Jose
I stayed once at Fitzgerald's on a Saturday night and came away from the experience determined that I would never do it again.
I also had the buffet once can came away with the same conclusion.
Steve Connelly, an Elvis impersonator, is very good. I wish I could say the same for Larry g. Jones as an impersonator.
great stay part 2
Went back to the fitz the days of feb. 12 - 14 2007. My wife and I were there for our 22nd anniversary.
The room they gave us was great even though we didnt spend much time there. We started out at the Vue Bar on the vp machines. Hit 4 of a kind alot and even hit the promotion of 4 - 7's which gets you a 10 dollar food coupon about 3 times.
The food was good. My wife even started to play vp for the first time and really enjoyed it. The people at the front desk were great they let us check in at noon and the people at the Vue Bar were excellent.
It is a fun place you can see the Fremont Street show out on the deck. Fitz has my business from now on.
