I am looking to stay Downtown with Wife and adult kids on a Summer Trip and wondered if anyone had stayed at The Plaza since its recent upgrades. Wiz's report in the Hotels Section is based on a 2010 stay and I believe the owners have invested in upgrades and refurbishments since that report. The Pool Deck is new as of about 12 months ago I believe. I'll be getting three rooms for everyone on the trip and plan to spend most of our time taking advantage of better gambling and restaurant values Downtown as the Strip has become ridiculous. That being said, this is a trip with the girls along, so I want a decent quality room that is clean and comfortable.

Also looking at Downtown Grand as an option or The D (a bit concerned about the noise level outside The D way into the early morning as the crew won't all be out until all hours). Maybe should consider Main Street Station as well.

Appreciate input on recent stays at any of the mentioned properties. Thanks in advance.

I was very happy at the D both times I stayed, very comfortable as a single woman in the hotel. Good security on the elevators, very clean, refurbished within the last couple years.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Honestly... I can get you a suite at some of the properties downtown for as long as you like. It isn't the best suite in Vegas but very acceptable. I will give you the 50% rate and I can also do this with food, beverage, cigars...etc. This goes for anyone else looking for rooms downtown or dinners that is going to pay instead of getting comped. I will save you tons of cash. PM me if you want to work it out.

If your bringing the kids... I would suggest a place downtown that I can get you. You will have a nice large suite with an adjoining room for the kids.

BBB, what was noise like at The D on a weekend...that one stage is right next to the Hotel Tower I believe.

Monet, I appreciate the offer, but I'll want to book these accommodations directly with the hotel in advance.

Hi there!
I stay at the Plaza every six months and love it. I am also a fan of the D however it can be noisy. If you ask for a room facing the mountains at the Plaza you won't hear a thing. It is very peaceful.
I am heading there again soon.

Here is my review from November with pictures of the new pool area.

Seems like the pool is important, so here's my 2¢. No refunds. :)

The pool at the D sucks.

The pool at Downtown Grand is a bit weird, but the pool deck is nice, with good staff/service.

I've never stayed at Plaza.

It is very simple you just book your room and charge all food, beverage and what not to your room. When your ready to check out you pay me cash and I pay for all your bills with comp. I don't even have to be on the room.

I understand that you just want to do things on your own though... I respect that.
