Downtown Grand is situated on Third Street between Stewart and Ogden avenues in downtown Las Vegas. It's a resort that exudes urban cool. Guests will appreciate the convenient location just across the street from The Mob Museum and a short stroll from Fremont Street Experience and the vibrant bar scene in the Fremont East Entertainment District. The hotel is also 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 30,000-square-foot-casino features industrial chic décor -- including reclaimed bricks on the walls, along with 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 race and sports book. Among Downtown Grand's dining offerings is the stylish bistro Stewart + Ogden. Positioned near the gaming floor, it serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. S+O is inspired by two prominent figures from the city's past -- Archibald Stewart and Peter Skene Ogden, who were the namesakes for the streets that border the resort. The Ninth Island, a shave ice and daiquiri bar from Hawaii, has also set up shop on this side of the Pacific Ocean. And there's an upscale food court named The Commissary. Picnic, an "urban rooftop pool retreat" (open on a seasonal basis), is the name given to one of the most unique venues at the Downtown Grand. Located on the third floor, it boasts an outdoor pool, fire pit and daybeds. Amid lovely park-like landscaping, you'll come across a lunch menu/bar and some outdoor gaming. Live DJs often appear here in the afternoons. At night, you'll find a lively scene in Furnace, Downtown Grand's casino bar, and Mob Bar, which captures the atmosphere of the Roaring Twenties with vintage décor, cool cocktails and the Italian eats gangsters would have ordered.  In terms of accommodations, Downtown Grand is comprised of two towers -- the 17-story Casino Tower (east) and the 25-story Grand Tower (west), which are joined by an elevated walkway. Together, they house 629 rooms and suites that range in size from 350 to 1,024 square feet. The base-level deluxe room offers complete comfort and style. Instead of being dark and stately, it has a refreshingly light and feminine ambiance with soft-hued green walls and a sky-like trim. Boasting corner spots with striking views, the premium rooms are larger and have an elegant deep red color palette. Plus, there are 23 petite suites and two grand suites.Among the amenities guests will enjoy are 42-inch flat-screen high-definition TVs with cable channels, Serta Presidential pillowtop mattresses, down pillows, alarm clocks, work desks and convenient standard and USB power outlets. The bathrooms are contemporary with either showers or combined shower/tubs, hair dryers and environmentally friendly products.And that's not all. Downtown Grand is at the heart of a much bigger neighborhood: the 10-acre, four-block district known as Downtown3rd, aka "dt³." Downtown3rd aims to offer visitors and locals a pedestrian-friendly, entertainment-oriented experience. Presently, it consists of the cool drinking and dining joints Triple George Grill, Hogs & Heifers Saloon and Pizza Rock. When Downtown3rd is completed, it will comprise nearly 20 different bars and restaurants.

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 shows "Tony n' Tina's Wedding" and "I Don't Have a Clue," the tribute show "Country Superstars," the L.A. Comedy Club and "Veronic Voices" featuring tributes to popular female recording artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga, Adele, Pink and Celine Dion. 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 the Tequila Bar and Grill for flavorful Mexican favorites, and Sea - The Thai Experience, which features unique fusion cuisine in a sleek setting. The Sidewalk Café is open for those who want to grab a quick bite for breakfast or lunch. 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. Victor Drai's Liaison, a gay nightclub, is elegantly designed to feature sexy dark decor. Liaison plays hip-hop, rap and top 40 music as well as hosts a drag night.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 has begun construction on the $50 million Grand Bazaar Shops. Scheduled to open in fall 2014, the 2-acre outdoor retail complex will be located at the front of the property. Inspired by great markets from around the world, the Grand Bazaar Shops will have 150 outlets including Swatch, Superdry, Havaianas and Campo Marzio. More than a third of the space will be dedicated to restaurants, bars and food outlets. The focal point of the Grand Bazaar Shops will be a spectacular tower called the Swarovski Crystal Starburst. Positioned over the brand's store, it will display 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, internet access (for a fee) 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.-- By Renée LiButti

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!!
