If a casino doesn't have an identity they are doomed to fail. They should have gone for the "best returning games in town" angle or "best promotions". Consider it a marketing expense and see what happens then. Why would I waste my time with a casino with no parking when I can go to Main Street or Plaza across the street?
Why do you say it has no parking? There's a parking garage right across the street.

a. Downtown Grand Las Vegas offers complimentary valet parking with validation for all hotel guests and $12 flat rate without validation for non hotel guests.
b. Downtown Grand Las Vegas offers complimentary self-parking with validation. The self-parking garage is located on Ogden Ave. between 3rd Street and 4th Street.
Getting significantly less random walk-in traffic compared to their competition probably hurts. OTOH there would be much less noise in hotel rooms than many most oother properties downtown, would think they could push that angle to a degree.
El Cortez has good video poker and excellent BJ.
Why doesn't the Grand look over to the El and copy some of the practices.
I love DT and always take the short hike to the EL.
The Grand is even closer to the Freemont Exp, they can get traffic like the El, just gotta give us better games.
I am actually staying at the Grand next week.
I picked them just because I have stayed at just about every hotel DT but never the Grand so I thought try them out this trip.
Good gambling just a short walk away :-)

Do you want sex? Well you've come to the right place. After you've been wined and dined, we'll f*** you over every which way!
Too often people get in the wrong line (because they are stupid), or the cage critters don't see you in the CHIPS line, and you are forced to wait forever JUST TO CASH CHIPS!
I found a guy in a suit and told him I'll never play there again. He didn't seem to care.
