Featuring a setting straight from the Victorian era, Main Street Station is an elegant resort that's just steps from the heart of downtown Las Vegas. Housing a large casino, more than 400 hotel rooms and a microbrewery on the premises, it has everything a visitor could want -- and more.For example, railroad enthusiasts will delight in examining several fully restored train cars placed along the sidewalk outside the resort. View the dining compartment, kitchen and sleepers from the opulent Cascade, which was built for a railroad executive in 1897. The Pullman cars of the Blackhawk, used to carry Buffalo Bill Cody and the other stars of the "Wild West Show" across America, are also there.  What's more, antique lovers will be captivated by numerous items inside the property. The lobby, which resembles a train depot with its long wooden benches, is replete with turn-of-the-century artifacts including vintage coin-operated slot machines, apothecary cabinets and a pair of pipe organs. In one of the men's restrooms, a portion of the Berlin wall can be found. In addition, there's a striking statue of a wild boar in the center of the resort's main bar that once stood in a fountain in Nice, France. Request a map at the front desk to pinpoint even more treasures.Everywhere you look, you will spy something beautiful. Be sure to take in the hotel décor: the high ceilings, columns, ornate bronze doors and intricately carved woodwork. There are stained glass windows and chandeliers (including one from the Figaro Opera House in Paris) that will leave you breathless.Main Street Station is as popular with locals as it is with visitors, thanks to a buffet and microbrewery that mix modern flavors and fun. The Garden Court Buffet has a backdrop as enchanting as its name suggests. Devour breakfast, lunch, dinner or a weekend champagne brunch amid a spread fit for royalty here. And the Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery is always packed. You'll find eight to nine handcrafted beers on tap (several of which have won awards), and you can look at the giant copper vats used to create them. The menu includes fresh baked pizzas and pub favorites ranging from burgers to fish and chips. Plus, there's a special corner where sushi and oysters are served.The 28,000-square-foot casino at Main Street Station is spacious. Sporting plenty of table games, slots and video poker machines, it also boasts lots of ceiling fans that keep the air circulating so it never feels smoky.Visitors can stay in guest rooms that combine vintage charm with modern sophistication (i.e., there are flat-screen TVs), and there is meeting space (the Pullman Grille and Social Club) that's guaranteed to inspire creativity and memorable times.In addition to being charming, Main Street Station is convenient. It's connected via the Bridge Avenue walkway to the California Hotel & Casino and only a block from the famous Fremont Street Experience. Visitors can also enjoy other activities, like shopping at the nearby Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North or going to a show at The Smith Center, a new world-class performing arts venue.With its delightful décor, Main Street Station is perfect for anyone who wants to experience a bit of affordable elegance accompanied by gracious service near the center of downtown.-- By Renée LiButti

I loved the location near my gym and the hotel staff was wonderful.
PostedMay 6, 2014
Full of old Hotel charm, warm staff, location filled my needs. Gaming was competitive, I actually won some, Rooms were better than some hotels much more expensive and the room staff knew when I was out of the room and came in took care of business, so I didn't have to wonder when they would come. Cute place, loved the Hawaii themes restaurant and loved that the two hotels, Sam Boyds, combined their resources. I will stay again. At the price of the room there were some issues but for me it was great and I could avoid the Fremont Street Experience or not. Lastly, convenient to the Mob Museum.

 BB Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show
BB Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show
A dinner and show with soul By Caroline FonteinGuests at B.B. King's Blues Club get more than just a taste of Southern-style cookin.' They also get a hearty helping of live entertainment. The club features a rotating lineup of live bands that perform in the evenings. There’s no better way to enjoy some “famous lip-smacking ribs” or a roasted chicken dinner than while listening to songs by artists like Otis Redding, Ray Charles and of course, B.B. King.Dinner seating for this show begins an hour before the live entertainment starts, giving guests an opportunity to get seated and order their meal before the performers take the stage. Almost every seat in the restaurant has a good view of the stage. There are three bars in the main restaurant area and another one located by the main entrance. For guests who want to do more than just sing along from their table, a dance floor in front of the stage offers a place for the crowd to get down and get funky. The three-course Classic Soul Dinner menu includes a choice of either salad or gumbo to start with and your choice of either Carolina BBQ salmon, B.B. King's "famous lip-smacking ribs," a seven-ounce USDA filet mignon or the roasted chicken dinner. For dessert the menu features banana bread pudding. The portion sizes are generous, and the food is prepared with comfort in mind. You won't find any bells and whistles here, just friendly service, satisfying entrees and a casual atmosphere that facilitates great music and good times.The live entertainment changes almost every night of the week. The main acts, The Memphis All-Stars and The Grant Garland Trio, perform on the weekends. Each band has its own style, but they all play classic, upbeat songs that make people want to clap their hands and get up and dance.On the night the show was attended the band performing played covers of hit songs including: "Lady's Night" (Kool and the Gang), "Brick House" (Rick James), "Return of the Mack" (Mark Morrison) and "No Diggity" (Blackstreet). The band performs while food is being served, creating a vibrant backdrop for dining. After finishing their meals some guests clapped and grooved along to the music in their seats while others got up and made their way to the dance floor. There's no barrier between you and the music. Hearing the person talk next to you can be a little challenging, but who goes to a dinner and show at a place named after a blues legend for the conversation?If you have a hankering for some Southern comfort food paired with great live entertainment, B.B. Kings Classic Soul Dinner and Show delivers.The Memphis AllStar BandThe Memphis AllStar Band is a group of hand-selected musicians chosen to be the house band at B.B. King's. Complete with a full horn section, the band performs music inspired by the King of Blues, the Queen of Motown and the Soul of Funk. The Grant Garland BandGrant Garland is a rising star in the music world. A talented pianist and guitar player, Garland wins over audiences with his ability to emulate and embellish upon musical influences from an array of music legends including Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Elton John, Sly & The Family Stone, Otis Redding and more. He's also a talented trumpet and flugel horn player, enabling him to perform a wide range of music. Garland has performed in venues throughout the nation and has opened for various artists including Bobby "Blue" Bland, Exile, Preston Shannon and Jason D. Williams.
