Review written by Sophie Couard, on March 9, 2016.

The Plaza is a large hotel-casino in Downtown Las Vegas, and it is located on Main Street at the west end of Fremont Street. Because of this great location it is often seen in movies that take place in the Downtown area of Las Vegas.

The establishment opened in 1971 and really deserves a renovation now. At the current rate of deterioration it seems like it will be falling apart soon. Still, the current owner does not seem willing to pay for a refurbishment. When one of the escalators leading to the bingo hall broke down it took many months for it to be finally repaired.

Nevertheless, it would be a shame to ignore the Plaza, as it has some great strengths that I will talk about in more detail in the rest of this review.

A particularly generous casino

Here you can find one of the nicest casinos in the whole of Downtown! Firstly, it is definitely the largest, as it covers over 5,500 m² and it offers a lot of slot machines and 20 game tables. There is also a small poker room, the largest area for race & sports betting in Downtown Las Vegas and the only bingo parlour in the area.

Secondly, many games have a very high payout rate to the players. This is mainly the case with blackjack and video poker, but craps also has a very low house edge.

The slot machines

There are over 600 devices available at the casino. Among them are :

  • all the classic games,
  • many modern games in HD and 3D,
  • games with progressive jackpots,
  • mechanical slot machines,
  • video slot machines,
  • video poker games.

The table games

Fans of traditional games can find around 20 tables with :

  • blackjack,
  • craps,
  • American roulette,
  • pai gow poker,
  • three card poker,
  • let it ride.

Poker

There is also a small poker room with only 5 tables. However, these tables are the first fully automated tables in the world. They allow you to play the games with different settings (high, low, high / low, no-limit, pot limit ...). You can play :

  • texas hold'em,
  • omaha,
  • l7 card stud,
  • razz.

Additionally, it is also possible to:

  • access additional information (such as statistics and previous hands),
  • play the game faster,
  • prevent mistakes.

Sports betting

The race & sports betting area is operated with a license of William Hill, and it is one of the largest in the city centre with more than 75 screens, comfortable seats and an adjacent bar. It offers a very pleasant atmosphere to bet on sporting events watch the competitions.

Bingo

The only bingo area in Downtown Las Vegas is located on the 3rd floor of the Plaza. There are 6 games every day:

  • at 11 am,
  • at 1 pm,
  • at 3 pm,
  • at 5 pm,
  • at 7 pm,
  • at 9 pm.

I will end the section about the casino and game rooms by mentioning that these areas can be accessed by everyone. However, if you want to play you must be an adult, that is to say, be at least 21 years.

Many additional services for a Downtown complex

As you have seen above, the Plaza is a great place to play in Downtown Las Vegas. Another advantage is that it also offers a lot of activities aside from gambling, and you can find more details about them below.

A hotel

There are 1,037 rooms and suites in total that you can book at the establishment, making it the second largest hotel in the city centre after the Golden Nugget. You have a choice of:

  • the deluxe room of 30 m²,
  • the deluxe view room of 30 m²,
  • the mini suite of 46 m²,
  • the one bedroom suite of 60 m²,
  • the two bedrooms suite of 92 m²,
  • the penthouse suite of 87 m².

Overall, these rooms are not the youngest and deserve a renovation, although their state is not catastrophic. They are kept very clean and are equipped with comfortable nickel bedding. However, it is regrettable that the bathrooms are rather small compared to the size of the rooms, and that there are no large wall and smaller makeup mirrors.

Restaurants and bars

If you want to have a snack you can choose from :

  • one of the best steakhouses in the town (Oscar's),
  • an excellent diner that serves a highly acclaimed breakfast (Hash House A Go Go),
  • a good pizza place (Pop Up Pizza).

There is also a food court with several fast food chains :

  • Cafelatte,
  • Zaba's Mexiacan Kitchen,
  • Subway,
  • McDonald's.

You can also have a drink at :

  • a pub (Beer Garden),
  • the bar in the sports betting area (Race & Sports Book Bar),
  • the bar in the casino (Omaha Bar).

Recreational facilities

The complex offers many options for you to enjoy your stay there. You can find :

  • a large swimming pool (especially large for the Downtown area) which is located on the roof of the casino,
  • four tennis courts,
  • a theatre,
  • wedding chapels.

 

Overall, there are advantages and disadvantages at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

I personally would not sleep there, because the rooms are not well maintained, but although the are still very cheap, there is better value for money available elsewhere.

However, I like to visit the complex, as they have excellent restaurants and one of the best casinos in the Downtown area. The games offer relatively high payout rates, and the casino is really worth a visit.

In short, the establishment is great for dining and playing games.
