Downtown Grand opens doors to public in downtown Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Downtown Grand is now open to the public.

The newest hotel-casino opened its doors over the weekend. It is located near Third Street and Ogden Avenue in downtown Las Vegas.

The Downtown Grand occupies the space formerly known as the Lady Luck. That hotel-casino closed in 2006 and sat vacant until now.

The property underwent massive renovations before its opening. The new hotel was designed to encourage guests to leave the building and walk around downtown.

Most hotel and casinos were designed to do the exact opposite. Instead, the Downtown Grand has numerous doors to enter and exit the property.

The hotel-casino offers 634 guest rooms, 25,000-square-feet of gaming space with 600 slot machines and 30 table games and 17 bars and restaurants.

The new property brought 800 jobs to the Las Vegas valley and they are now taking reservations. There are even some special deals online.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held for the property on Nov. 12. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 2:15 and will feature Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Downtown Grand Las Vegas CEO Steve Schorr, Bill Doak of the CIM Group, and representatives from Sen. Harry Reid's and Congresswoman Dina Titus' offices.
