So you're probably wondering...what does the "D" stand for?The resort's moniker, The D Las Vegas, pays tribute to its downtown location as well as to the Detroit roots of its owners, Derek (who is often called "D" by friends) and Greg Stevens. Among the things that make The D Las Vegas so cool is the way it melds the Motor City with Sin City.Although not specifically Detroit-themed, the Stevens brothers have persuaded a few Michigan-based businesses to set up shop at their resort. Take Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. This Detroit-area import is a true dining gem -- and you can indulge in a five-star meal here without the five-star price tag. All of the dishes are prepared from scratch daily. The Andiamo Grande Meatball and 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk ribeye steak are not to be missed, plus the cannoli is so good you'll leave the gun and take it.Known for serving hot dogs like no others you've had before, American Coney Island counts itself among the oldest businesses in Detroit -- and there's only one location outside of Michigan. Can you guess where that is? Positioned next to The D Las Vegas' east casino entrance on Fremont Street Experience, these specially seasoned wieners from The Dearborn Sausage Company are topped with a secret chili recipe that's three generations old.There are other nuances of Detroit at The D Las Vegas. Whenever the city's beloved teams -- the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings -- play, you can expect to see the game broadcast at the Longbar, which is hailed as the longest watering hole in Nevada with 15 big flat-screen TVs lined up side by side. (And if any of those teams should make it to the championships, expect to find a party of epic proportions going on.)Actually the party spirit begins any time you approach The D Las Vegas. Outside on Fremont Street, you'll discover the modern-looking D Bar, where dancing girls in boots and fringed bikinis pour frozen alcohol-infused drinks into funny souvenir cups. Flair bartenders also flaunt their talents while mixing cocktails at the other end of the long counter.What else should you know about The D Las Vegas? Well, its showroom features some truly eclectic entertainment. Comedy magician Adam London and ventriloquism duo Patrick Murray and Matilda appear in the afternoons. You can get tickets to the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" or the hilarious musical extravaganza "Frankie Scinta and The Scintas" in the evenings. (A little bit of trivia: The Scintas have a Michigan connection too. In their early days, they performed at Joe Vicari's Detroit restaurant.)The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear dance-oriented music over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are manned by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, it's a blast to the past. You'll discover discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game. The resort also houses a William Hill Sports Book.The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's got a high-energy vibe -- one that reflects the energy of the revitalized downtown area. So we'd say the "D" really stands for "dynamic" or "dude, this is a fun and affordable place to stay."

Good stay, but no like resort,& Wifi fees
PostedNovember 14, 2013
I enjoyed "THE D" good location. If you use the WAX Bus at the Airport, it will drop you off right in front of it. Fun lively place. Rooms were good, nice and refurbished. The D Grill is a friendly, nice and clean place to eat. Love "The Long Bar", and the"D Bar" out front. Don't like "Resort Fees, and Wifi fees. But your going to find those almost everywhere. Front reception desk, was nice and helpful. Asked if I preferred a lower or upper floor and accommodated my choice. If you drink the bottled water in the room, you will be charged. I just drank the tap. Water is water! Good place, great investment in the refurbishment Has a McDonalds, and Good French Fries at . Coney Island Hot Dogs.
