One of the most famous casino brands in Las Vegas has added a new bar and entertainment space as well as hotel rooms. Binion’s Gambling Hall and Hotel on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas has quietly been upgrading the property. They recently opened Whiskey Licker Up Saloon. Earlier this year, they opened the 81 room Hotel Apache.
Not only is Binion’s increasing its entertainment but this is the first time you can get a room at the property in 10 years.
Hotel Apache Now Open
During the summer, Binion’s opened Hotel Apache. This boutique hotel features 81 rooms with vintage-style furnishings. The hotel motif is reminiscent of the original Hotel Apache that opened in 1932.
Binion’s Horseshoe was created when Benny Binion purchased the Eldorado Club and Hotel Apache in 1951. Together, the property is the Binion’s Gambling Hall that we know today.
Everything about Hotel Apache is inspired by the rich history of the property. The new hotel captures the essence of Las Vegas’ storied past. Mayor Carolyn Goodman was on hand for the opening and said: “There is so much happening in Downtown Las Vegas and I am thrilled that Binion’s is offering the new Hotel Apache experience.” She continued, “Downtown has always been the place in our city for history and the vintage Vegas vibe, so this concept is a perfect fit!”
Hotel Apache’s vintage character is evidenced in its location and the original 1932 architecture. Guests of Hotel Apache will be able to check in at the original registration desk located right on the casino floor.
Here’s a little trivia. Guests can take the first electronic elevator in the city of Las Vegas to their hotel room. Who knew?!
