For the history buffs and artifact appreciators alike, the Main Street Station Hotel and Casino is a sure bet just steps from the heart of downtown Las Vegas.Set in the splendor of the Victorian era, the ‘70s-built property is home to a 28,000-square-foot casino, more than 400 hotel rooms and a microbrewery on the premises with drink specials that will make you a believer of love at first pint.Upon entry and check-in at the resort, visitors will be captivated by numerous items inside the property. The lobby, which resembles a train depot with long wooden benches, is replete with turn-of-the-century artifacts including vintage coin-operated slot machines – oooo, ahhhh - apothecary cabinets (void of old-timey and most likely poisonous medications) and a pair of pipe organs, all of which add pleasant character to the hotel’s ambiance in a random-antique-combination sort of way. Additionally, in one of the men's restrooms, a portion of the Berlin wall is stoically perched for a little relief room décor. But perhaps the most prominent artifact within the resort is the striking statue of a wild boar in the center of the resort's main bar that once stood in a fountain in Nice, France… nice touch, huh? Interested in challenging yourself to a little game of life-sized “I Spy?” Request a map at the front desk to pinpoint even more treasures located throughout the resort.For example, railroad enthusiasts will delight in examining several fully restored train cars placed along the sidewalk directly outside of the resort. To intrigue your curiosity, guests get to view the various cars including the dining compartment, kitchen and sleepers from the opulent Cascade, which was built for a railroad executive in 1897. Also permanently parked at the Main Street are the Pullman cars of the Blackhawk, which used to transport the famed Buffalo Bill Cody and other stars of the "Wild West Show" across America.  Is the history buff inside of you hungry for more? Everywhere you look, something beautiful is sure to catch your eye. The hotel’s interior alone features high ceilings, sprawling columns, ornate bronze doors and intricately-carved woodwork in addition to artful stained glass windows and chandeliers (including one from the Figaro Opera House in Paris) that will leave you breathless.Now, that your history craving is fed, how about satiating that food craving next? The cuisine at Main Street Station is as popular with locals as it is with visitors, thanks to a buffet and microbrewery that perfectly blends modern flavors with a fun dining experience.The Garden Court Buffet offers a wide array of global cuisine that is prepared freshly for guests and visitors to devour breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or a weekend champagne brunch.  In addition to the buffet is the Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery that is always packed and always ready to pour you a cold one (or three!) straight from the brewery’s tap. Here you will find eight to nine handcrafted beers on tap (several of which have won awards), and you can take a gander 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 section of the restaurant where sushi and oysters are served.The 28,000-square-foot casino at Main Street Station is a lively area of the hotel brought to life by more than 800 slot and video poker machines, and a wide array of table games. However, if relaxation is what you're going for, go ahead and lounge poolside at the resort's quaint outdoor pool.In addition to being charming, Main Street Station is also very conveniently located. Connected via the Bridge Avenue walkway to the California Hotel & Casino and only a block from the famous Fremont Street Experience, all of the downtown excitement is just steps from the hotel’s main entrance. Similarly, visitors can also enjoy other activities, like shopping at the nearby Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North or catching a Broadway production or musical concert at The Smith Center, a new world-class performing arts venue in the heart of our city.Charmingly delightful with a little history, a little play, and a lot of a fun, Main Street Station is ideal for anyone who is looking to experience the excitement of Las Vegas at an affordable price that doesn’t sacrifice a good time.

Great for price
PostedAugust 17, 2013
Respectable room plus great buffet for a very low price. Great for anyone who appreciates refined taste and history reflected in the hotel's decorations. It is not on the strip but only a few minutes away if you avoid the rush hours. People -- guests and hotel staff included -- are nice, distinctly different from those pushy people in the strip who just ask for lots of money in return for little hospitality and trap visitors with money pitfalls. Definitely will stay in this hotel again in my next trip. Only regret is that the faucet in the bath tub is not properly connected. The faucet is powerful but once switched to the shower, it becomes very weak. Though it is still tolerable but should not be left unattended.

Who said being the center of attention was a bad thing? Located in the heart of the ever-lively Fremont Street Experience, The Fremont Hotel and Casino has taken downtown's center stage and isn't leaving anytime soon.This recently remodeled 14-story hotel, welcomes guests and visitors alike with glowing marquees and inexpensive fun.Boasting a 32,000-square-foot casino that is open to the energetic Fremont Street explorers, the Fremont is home to 1,000 slots, video poker and keno machines as well as 24 table games, live keno, and a 42-seat Race and Sports Book.  Located right next to the Race and Sports Book is the Fremont's Paradise Buffett. With eight stations, it is very likely that you will find an entree to satisfy even the most persistent of cravings. However, even if your needs were met in the buffet, you will eventually need to refuel again and The Fremont offers several additional eateries to keep you satisfied. More casual dining can be enjoyed at the Second Street Grill, which is known for its Pacific Rim-influenced cuisine, or Tony Roma's, which sure to tempt your palate with flavorful char-grilled ribs, chicken and burgers. Short on time? Go for a hot dog, salad or Chinese dish at Lanai Express – or just grab a coffee and a sweat treat at Dunkin' Donuts or the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  With direct access to Fremont Street and a nearby stop for the Strip and Downtown Express bus line, adventures begin just steps outside of the hotel. Whether you're content exploring downtown  or if you're seeking out Las Vegas Boulevard, the Fremont Hotel and Casino is a convenient place to call home base.

A Welcome Alternative to the Strip
PostedJuly 14, 2013
The free buffet and low room rate brought me finally to the original heart of Vegas and made me realize what I had been missing all along-- though I had already visited Vegas at least 15 times! Location is the greatest thing about this hotel. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised that the free buffet does not lack in quality as food was fresh. The Fremont Street experience was wonderful and I am recommending all my folks and friends to go visit the old Vegas at least once.

The Palms has become so iconic in Vegas that it’s hard to believe it’s only been around since 2001. We’ve had stuff in the back of our office refrigerator longer than that. But that leftover Chinese food can’t match the class and presence that the Palms brings to Flamingo road just west of the Las Vegas Strip.When the night falls, Palms comes alive with Ghostbar, one of the hottest and most impressive clubs (and views) in town. Take the elevator to the 55th floor and enjoy the glorious panoramas of Las Vegas from the outdoor balcony or just embrace the stylish décor and dance the night away to some of the most renowned DJs Las Vegas has around. And if you’re one of those silly day people, you know, someone who isn’t out until 4 a.m. partying with strangers they just met, Ghostbar Dayclub is open during fall and winter, bringing you the excitement of Ghostbar with the practicality of daytime.Speaking of things you do when the sun is out, sunbathing enthusiasts are sure to be lured by the pool area. This magnificent two-acre outdoor playground is comprised of several swimming pools. In addition, there are three bars, a 12-foot waterfall, 27 cabanas, in-water chaise lounges and daybeds. Along with concerts and special events, summer's ongoing Palms Pool & Dayclub parties, like Ditch Fridays, are not to be missed -- they just want you to ditch everything else. For summer 2015, Hooters will open a poolside bar and two-story restaurant.When you’re ready to sit back, relax and take in a show, the music industry's top performers can usually be found at the Pearl. All 2,500 seats in this high-tech theater have unobstructed sightlines to the stage. No matter what style of music you’re into, assuming it’s not some sort of death metal that they’re legally only allowed to play in German dungeons, you’ll find artists that speak to your style and taste. So be sure to book your trip around your favorite act and turn your vacation into a stay you’ll never forget.For the foodie, Palms has a truly impressive lineup of restaurants. At the French-themed Alizé by chef Andre Rochat and Nove Italiano by chef Geno Bernardo, the spectacular food is overshadowed only by unrivaled views -- panoramic vistas of the Strip and beyond. A hipster's paradise, other trendy restaurants at the Palms include N9NE Steakhouse, where you'll be living large while savoring tender and tasty cuts of beef. Lao Sze Chuan by renowned Chicago chef Tony Hu serves authentic Sze Chuan cuisine along with a selection of popular Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan and Shanghai dishes. Lao Sze Chuan also offers dim sum and signature entrees from Hu's Chicago locations like Tony's Chicken with Three Chili. Even the 24 Seven Café, Cafe on the Way, Bistro Buffet and The Eatery, a food court that is positioned next to the 14-screen Brenden Theatres, have fashionable vibes.With a casino, sports book, spa, movie theater and everything else that makes casino resorts so spectacular, Palms has cemented itself as one of those Vegas legacies that won’t soon fade away. The name is classic. The amenities are superb. And everything about the Palms will make you forget you troubles – including whatever might be growing in the back of your refrigerator.

Very good quality for promotion price
PostedJuly 22, 2012
Stayed 4 nights booked via Vegas.com and got everything promised on promotion package though apparently Vegas.com should have alerted guests booking online that there is a resort fee not included. Hotel wireless internet is complimentary as promised but got it only after second enquiry at reception. Complimentary breakfast buffet included in package is good value except reception at restaurant was unnecessarily slow. No reason why guests need to line up for quite a while when many empty tables were available. Overall hotel quality is good with most facilities available. Very likely to book same hotel again in future trips to Vegas. I am a tourist from Hong Kong who travels to the US at least once yearly and see at least 3 to 4 show per stay at Vegas. I have visited many places worldwide except India, Africa and South America.
