Located in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas, the Plaza Hotel & Casino offers a combination of classic Vegas vibes and modern sophistication. The Plaza Hotel Casino opened in 1971 and was a fashionable stop on the first train service through Vegas. It is now a main anchor in the Fremont Street Experience and, after a compete remodel in 2011, offers stylish new decor in both the rooms and throughout the casino.
