Resort debuts in downtown Las Vegas
October 31, 2012
former Fitzgeralds Casino & Hotel has completed its transformation to
become the D Las Vegas, revealing a sleek new style, energetic attitude and fun
atmosphere in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Located beneath the largest video screen in the world on Vegas’ famous Fremont Street Experience, the D sits at the center of four neon blocks of non‐stop party action, according to company press releases. The property's complete interior and exterior renovation embraces the upbeat culture of downtown and invites guests to experience the modern amenities, first‐class entertainment, fun culinary experiences and unique gaming that abound inside.
"We're incredibly excited to be part of a new era in downtown Las Vegas," said Derek Stevens, owner and CEO of the D. "the D's renovations reflect the high energy and friendly atmosphere of Fremont Street, and we want everyone to have a blast when they stay and play with us."
Renovations at the D focus on modern styling, while maintaining elements from classic Vegas and introducing glimpses of Detroit:
• the D stands for many things and draws inspiration from its home in Downtown Las Vegas and its owner's hometown of Detroit as well as his first name.
• A new lobby and valet lead guests to one of the only two‐level casinos in the city offering the latest in slots and table games on the first floor and a Vintage Vegas gaming experience on the second, featuring an array of coin‐operated slots and the beloved Sigma Derby simulated horse‐racing game.
• 624 remodeled rooms offer modern, updated accommodations while 14 luxury suites provide guests with a lavish space for relaxing or entertaining.
• Two new high‐energy bars—LONGBAR inside the casino and D Bar on Fremont Street—serve up frozen libations, an extensive beer menu and traditional cocktails 24/7.
• Offering an entirely new take on the neon signage of Sin City, the D's Fremont Street facade is now home to an exclusive interactive video display, known as "Face to Face," which broadcasts colorful, dynamic content across hundreds of feet of LED signage and forty giant flat screen televisions.
