Before the giant casinos that now line Las Vegas Boulevard, there were the classics like The Plaza that established Vegas as the city of glitz, glamour and gaming – one of the original Las Vegas celebrity haunts. The Plaza, located at #1 Main Street is a historical icon for downtown Las Vegas. The Plaza Hotel & Casino is also the gateway to the famous Fremont Street Experience. When the Plaza opened its doors in 1971 it was the largest hotel and casino in the world with over 500 rooms. Over the last 40 years the Plaza has been featured in several motion pictures and influenced the design and shape of Sin City’s skyline.
