Golden Gate Casino Getting Facelift

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Downtown renaissance continues, as Las Vegas‘ oldest hotel is getting a makeover!

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Golden Gate hotel in downtown Las Vegas plans to expand its casino floor and add 16 new hotel suites.

The casino that dates back to 1906 recently filed construction plans with the city that also call for overhauling the hotel lobby and some conference rooms, among other upgrades.

The $12 million overhaul represents the latest hotel-casino renovation along downtown’s bustling Fremont Street. The Golden Nugget, El Cortez, Gold Spike and Plaza have also made big upgrades in recent years.

The City Council is slated to vote on the Golden Gate’s proposed changes on Oct. 19.
