The days of the old dingy downtown hotels is going on the wayside. The Plaza has gotten a face lift. Don’t get my words twisted and think that the Plaza is going to be on the caliber of the Bellagio or the Venetian, or even the MGM. The Plaza is an old hotel that has gone through aesthetic remodeling. The furnishings are new, the beds are comfortable, but the rooms are still the same construction. It is however, leaps and bounds better than a couple of years back. People complain about the long walk through the casino to the back tower. It is a little bit of a journey. The plus side though? You do not get the bass and noise from the Fremont St Experience all night. I have to admit the view was nice. Seeing all of the people and the lights at night lost its novelty right as you laid your head down to go to bed. On a side note, I was hammered and still found it difficult to pass out with all of the noise.
The location is great. Well, how could it not be? All of the hotels are right next to each other
The cocktail ladies are proficient in the evenings
The Swingers Bar has $.50 draft beers
The Hash House restaurant has a $10 off coupon
Rooms are clean
Noise from Freemont
Some of the clientele. I am not one of those “high class”, hoity-toity d-bags that walk around Vegas with the lens less glasses wearing a woman’s medium shirt they got at the Forever 21 year end blowout clearance sale that is addicted to fist pumping at the club. I am however a normal middle class guy and find it a little unsettling and somewhat of a bring down when Vegas locals come to the table reeking of alcohol, cigarettes and what I assumed was an odor combination of lack of showering and methamphetamines. They throw down more than what I bought in for and then start talking about how their disability checks might be getting cut slightly and how they deserve more than what they have now. Working almost 80 hours a week between 2 jobs it made my blood boil brining my happy drunken gambling to a halt. This isn’t the hotels fault. It is a tolerable evil that you must endure while downtown.
All in all it was a good, clean and cheap hotel. It was good enough that when my wife and I renew our vows in Vegas this year we already have a block of 10 rooms booked. If you are looking for a Vegas weekend without the utterly astronomic Strip prices, the Plaza can more than accommodate.
