100 Years of History – Vegas’ Oldest Hotel and Casino Restored to its Former Glory

Las Vegas SignThe Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, first opened in 1906, unveiled the results of its impressive $15-million renovation and expansion project last week with a glitzy speakeasy-themed event. This is the first major renovation project for the property in 50 years. New features include a 5-story luxury addition, new suites and vintage-inspired penthouses, an expanded casino floor, a new state of the art casino surveillance system, and a new lobby featuring vintage and historical items, many of which were recovered during construction.

From humble beginnings as stopover railroad outpost to its current position as one of the most buzzed about and happening cities in the United States, Las Vegas has a rich and vibrant history, and the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino is a part of that. The property was a local fixture from the beginning, through the Roaring 20s, the Rat Pack era, modern times, and everything in between. Congratulations to the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino on their exciting new upgrades and nod to Las Vegas’ history.
