LAS VEGAS (November 20, 2019) – Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino has been accepted into membership of Preferred Hotels & Resorts -- the world’s largest independent hotel brand that represents more than 750 distinctive hotels, resorts, residences, and unique hotel groups across 85 countries -- as the newest experience available within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Connect Collection. The Preferred Hotels & Resorts Connect Collection is an international portfolio of hotels that connect people to friends and family, business associates, and interesting neighborhoods. Inspired by local culture, these smart, well-appointed, eclectic, and welcoming hotels seamlessly combine value with comfort and convenience to relax one’s busy, on-the-road life.
The Downtown Grand reimagined the downtown Vegas traveler when it opened in 2013. Defined by its industrial chic aura and highlighted by open ceilings, ornate fixtures, and heavy structural elements the hotel was at the forefront of the Downtown Las Vegas resurgence along with the relocation of Zappos headquarters, the development of the Fremont East District, and Life is Beautiful Music Festival. Six years later, the property continues to serve as a central hub to both tourists and locals alike for all of Downtown Las Vegas’ events and happenings.
