Downtown Grand is a resort that exudes urban cool. The hotel, located on Third Street between Stewart and Ogden avenues, is one of downtown's most modern, hip properties.The hotel was formerly known as the Lady Luck, but was completely transformed in 2013 into the Downtown Grand.The hotel is just off Fremont Street, but there's no lack of action. Just across the street is the Downtown 3rd area, which is full of cool drinking and dining joints like Triple George Grill, Hogs & Heifers Saloon and Pizza Rock. Downtown Grand is also adjacent to the Mob Museum and is less than a mile from shopping at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North and cultural events at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.The hotel even offers guests complimentary daily shuttle service to some of downtown's hot spots including the Neon Museum, Downtown Container Park and the outlet mall.Gamblers can try their luck in a 30,000-square-foot-casino that features industrial chic décor -- including reclaimed bricks on the walls, existing rust and graffiti and a cool brick façade. It houses more than 600 state-of-the-art slot machines and 30 table games as well as a William Hill Sports Book. For a bite to eat at the Downtown Grand, the stylish bistro S+O is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Commissary features a communal seating area with an outdoor patio. There are artisan Latin-inspired sandwiches, burgers and a rotisserie with chicken, brisket, tacos and more. To get you going in the morning there's also a coffee bar in The Commissary serving java concoctions, crepes, pastries and breakfast sandwiches.At night (Who are we kidding? Probably during the day too.), you'll find plenty of places for a stiff cocktail. Furnace is Downtown Grand’s version of the center casino bar. Watch out for brain freeze at The Ninth Island, a shave ice and daiquiri bar from Hawaii. And Art Bar is a hip spot to grab a sophisticated drink, lean back and gaze at the art plastered on the ceilings. They also serve munchies like charcuterie, wings and chicken sliders.However you decide to spend your time at Downtown Grand, make it a priority to visit The Pool Deck. Located on the third floor and open seasonally, it boasts an outdoor pool, fire pit and daybeds. Sit at a picnic table and enjoy lunch or a drink amid the park-like landscaping.

Loved it!
PostedJuly 24, 2014
The room was very nice and the staff was wonderful! It is very near the "all night party" of Freemont Street but just a block back, so it has a more tranquil feel. The pool was very nice. Pizza Rock (across the street) was really good. We enjoyed sitting outside at the cafe tables and chatting at night while the live music of the Freemont Street band was close enough to hear. Very close to the Deuce (bus system) stops and Mob Museum (which is a must see). And you don't have to walk through the whole casino to get to the hotel.

Reflecting the spirit of Las Vegas' past while embracing a passion and vitality for the future, the legendary Bally's resort in the heart of the Strip is an enduring favorite among visitors. Offering much more than just affordable accommodations, Bally's showcases cosmopolitan dining, a fine spa and a premier race and sports book.Of course, entertainment makes up a cornerstone of the resort. "Jubilee" has a history spanning more than 30 years. The grand-scale production is responsible for pioneering the showgirl-style revue. Although revamped and given a culturally contemporary twist, it retains its topless showgirls flocked in feathers and rhinestones. In fact, nearly 100 showgirls and showboys kick, dance and sing their way through over-the-top numbers like the sinking of the Titanic.And if you can't get enough of "Jubilee" onstage, go on the Jubilee Backstage Tour. The all-access afternoon walking tour, which is led by a showgirl, takes you behind the scenes to check out the giant-sized props, the extravagant costumes and much more.Other entertainment options at the resort include the interactive dinner show "Tony n' Tina's Wedding," the tribute show "Country Superstars," the astonishing mind reading in "Paranormal" and the sexy satire "50 Shades! The Parody" based on the best-selling "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy.Bally's has its share of distinctive restaurants -- like BLT Steak, a highly regarded steakhouse from New York City. Among its signature staples are popovers, tuna tartare, Dover sole and of course, specialty steaks. On Saturdays and Sundays, BLT Steak serves the Sterling Brunch, where guests can indulge in fine fare including caviar, lobster tails, fresh-shucked oysters, Alaskan king crab legs, and never-ending glasses of Perrier Jouët Champagne, mimosas and bloody Marys. Check out Sea - The Thai Experience, which features unique fusion cuisine in a sleek setting. Elsewhere on the property, you'll find fast eats at Java Coast, Nosh and the large food court, which includes Johnny Rockets, Nathan's Famous, Sbarro, Pan Asian Express and Subway.In the evenings, dance the night away at the Indigo Lounge. Live bands perform in this seductive spot, usually accompanied by a sexy tabletop dancer or two. And you can make friends with other visitors in Sully's, the wood-paneled bar near the lobby that has been welcoming guests to Bally's for many years. If you're interested in the day's big games, the resort is home to the finest race and sports book around. Located at one end of Bally’s Avenue Shoppes (an eclectic collection of fashion, souvenir, jewelry, luggage and sundries stores), this stadium-style venue has projection-screen TVs wherever the eye can see. A VIP lounge, called the Sky Box, features additional flat-screen televisions and comfortable seating. It can accommodate up to 100 guests. Plus, there's a big bar with high-top tables spilling out out into the shopping area.Bally's is home to the outdoor Grand Bazaar Shops. This 2-acre retail complex is located at the front of the property. Inspired by great markets from around the world, the Grand Bazaar Shops has more than 100 retail outlets including Swatch, Superdry, Havaianas and Campo Marzio as well as a collection of restaurants and bars. The focal point of the Grand Bazaar Shops is a spectacular installation called the Swarovski Starburst. Positioned over the brand's store, it displays a dazzling midnight show of lights and music.Bally's includes an Olympic-sized pool with palm trees, private cabanas and a whirlpool. There's also an impressive tennis complex, the largest one on the Strip. All eight championship-caliber courts are lit for night play. A full-service pro shop and lessons from a former ATP Tour player are also available.A place that offers rejuvenation and profound relaxation, The Spa at Bally's is an exceptional facility. It has 18 treatment rooms, multiple hot tubs, wet and dry saunas, and a eucalyptus steam room. There is a salon and fitness center as well.The comfortable accommodations at Bally's comprise 2,814 spacious guest rooms and suites. Among the standard amenities are hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, clock radios and cable TVs. Unlike many hotels on the Strip, Bally's has designated "PetStay" rooms where pets are allowed to stay for an additional fee.The resort is connected to Paris Las Vegas through Le Boulevard shops. It also is on the Las Vegas Monorail route. This means you'll have easy access to other great hotels on the Strip as well as to the Las Vegas Convention Center.Bally's opened in 1973 as the original MGM Grand. At that time, with more than 2,000 rooms, it was one of the largest hotels in the world. Today, it's no longer among the biggest properties -- but at Bally's you can surround yourself with the charm of yesteryear while enjoying a fabulous present-day Vegas vacation.

Great location, nice hotel!
PostedJuly 28, 2012
The room and hotel were very nice. We LOVED the location; the fact that it joins the Paris Hotel and we could enjoy the atmosphere there as well. Also, loved the moving sidewalks that front the entrance from the Strip; our feet really appreciated the help after lots of walking. Check out the underground concourse of shops and monorail connection.

I am coming to ballys and would like to know the transportation fron ballys to freemont st

Catch the "Deuce". Its a shuttle bus that runs up and down the Strip all day/night. There is a stop right outside Bally's to the left towards Planet Hollywood. Pay for your pass at the automated machine located at the bus stop there. You can buy one-time pass, all day pass, or 3 day passes. The Deuce goes up to Freemont St &4th. You're there!!
