Plaza Hotel Downtown Soft Reopening

Hotel guests are beginning to check-in to the newly remodeled Plaza hotel downtown Las Vegas at the end of Fremont Street. The property is having a soft opening starting today before the official grand opening on September 1st.

The hotel closed in November to complete an estimated $20 million renovation project using furniture purchased from the stalled Fontainebleau development.

Prices for the updated rooms are $39-59 for weeknights and $99-129 for most weekend nights according to the Plaza website. Seems like a pretty good bargain for essentially a brand new hotel room.

I'm excited to see the reopening of the Plaza. When the plans were first announced I was skeptical whether the hotel would be able to complete the project. I thought it might be a situation like the Lady Luck, which closed down in 2006 and hasn't reopened.
